I dunno. Now I just shrug. Doesn't make me smarter or better or more mature than anyone who is really gaga for this stuff. Just makes me...burnt out? Uninterested.
That being said, I have only a few, useless observations about what I've seen from the film. The costumes just look ridiculous. The Comedian looks like an idiot, and why he wears a mask, I dunno. Ditto Ozymandias, isn't he famous? Why wear a domino that doesn't hide his face? And a George Clooney Bat-costume. He can afford something nicer, I think. I didn't get that stuff in the comic, either, but you buy into the costume silliness in a comic more readily than in a flesh and blood film.I just can't take those people seriosuly. Maybe immersed in the film I could, but, well, whatever. Told ya, useless observation.
The only actual complaint I really have is with whatever jagoff came up with the tagline, "From the visionary director of 300" for the ad campaign. I doubt Snyder wrote that. But I'd be friggin' embarrassed to see that plastered all over the earth if I was him. Is a director really a visionary when he's reworking the vision of other people? He's known for a Dawn of the Dead remake, an adapation of 300, and an adaptation of Watchmen. Maybe they're great, I enjoyed Dawn, for the most part. Saw no "vision" in it, other than, "let's use CGI for crowd shots". Maybe there's a "vision" of his own in 300. Like, using the green screen stuff from Sin City? And boarding it off the comic another guy drew? What am I missing here? Anyway, some flack hack says he's a visionary, for adapting the visions of George Romeru, Frank Miller and Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Huh. Nice.
