Batman v. Superman v. Staying Home

Holly and I have had some difficulties getting to movies. It’s the Geek Baby, lining up a babysitter, the limited movie showtimes in town (only ever one screen showing a movie), and then life. I’ve been working Saturdays. And this weekend is Easter, so it’s busy above the usual.

All of which is to say that, while they were trying to find a time with no competition to releaseĀ Batman v. Superman, they have also found a time that is really hard for us to make it. If we do see it, it will either be separately from each other (but hopefully with friends), or else in several weeks’ time. That’s just where we’re at.

And then we’re seeing some of the initial reviews are questionable. But it’s a comic book movie, which can get odd reviews from “official” critics. It’s Zack Snyder, whose style turns some people off. It’s a sequel to a hotly contested movie. It’s the start of a larger multi-movie multi-title franchise. It’s DC’sĀ Iron Man 2. All of which is to say… should we even bother?

So I have a few request of you, dear readers.

  • If you write a review or read a good one, feel free to drop a link in the comments below. We might not read it for a while, but it can help make up for us not writing one for a while, right?
  • If you’re looking for a review, check out any that folks drop in the comments below!
  • If you see the movie, give us your feedback: worth running to the theater to see? Finding the time (for a 2 and a half hour movie) and a babysitter worth it? We’d like that word of mouth!
