I'm finding it oddly interesting reading and watching reviews. Some people seem to completely not notice it which I suppose is exactly what the editting and reshoots were hoping for. But how it got as far as test screenings without anyone thinking it might be a bad choice (if thats how it played out) is crazy.
Why they didn't do the couple of extra reshoots needed to actually remove the plot entirely is even more baffling.
Saw and liked it. I'm lost as to what was so horrible it should have been removed.
I really appreciate that this is probably the first authentic version of Max Lord we've had since Infinite Crisis. Since then every portrayal of him has been some level of sinister, if not outright monstrous.

Gave up hoping for this to make an appearance in a cinema in Wales and watched it on Blu-ray.
I thought the opening scene was excellent, and I thought the final act was very good, but the middle hour-and-a-half was rather naff. The first WW film was better, though I enjoyed its final act less than that of WW84. The mass wish fulfilment thing just somehow seemed to have more resonance with me than the god of war stuff. Anyway, both are still way above anything featuring Henry Cavill as Superman.
I think I need to give Aquaman a second viewing.
Little is known about this goblin beyond its dual role as an offensive weapon and teapot.
There's something about the fact that the villains weren't evil that resonates. It adds additional stakes in that not only does she need to save the world, she needs to at least try to save them, too. And it adds a tragic aspect if she fails, particularly as the first part of the film sets up how hard she tries to make sure nobody gets hurt in an engagement.
