[CBMT] DC Bracket Round One # 2

Recommended Posts

OOF.

B&R vs. Watchmen is a really tough matchup for me. I like both of those movies better than the general consensus.

They are both wildly underrated.  Batman & Robin is really, really good at being what it wants to be (a then-modern update of Batman '66, with a blockbuster budget) and Watchmen somehow gets knocked both for being too faithful and not faithful enough to the source material.

 

Of course, I've been fighting the "B&R needs reevaluated" battle on this board for years, and I think maybe two people have actually sat down and re-watched it.  I maintain that it is, at bare minimum, a better film than Forever or Rises.

I always argued that Clooney is the perfect person to play Batman. It is unfortunate he played him in that movie.

I agree totally with Fowler about B&R.

 

And yeah, Jonah Hex wasn't that great, but I'll be damned if I vote Rises over anything save for Lantern.

I finally went with B&R, based simply on rewatchability. You can jump into that movie at any point and be entertained. WATCHMEN is something you kinda have to invest in watching, and as such, I haven't rewatched it nearly as much. But I still like it a lot, and even think it *gasp* improves on the graphic novel in some ways.

Watchmen suffers in rewatchability because it's really fucking long.  Especially if you are like me and roll with The Ultimate Cut.

I've never even seen Jonah Hex, but I voted for it, because I hated DKR that much. . .

There are a LOT of movies in this tournament I would vote over DKR.

 

Jonah Hex is definitely not one of them.

Snyder always wins the trailer.

That Watchmen trailer is instant goosebumps. I must have watched it 100 times before the movie premiered.

The irony of match up 1 is the theme from the trailer of Watchmen is from the soundtrack of Batman & Robin.

B&R is the only Bat-movie i've voted against thus far.

Forever is my personal favorite. i'm not going to argue its greatness, i just personally love it to no end.
