I've been feeling kind of down lately, and I figured that if I get back to doing some of "my things", I could lift myself out of that funk. Enter, the midnight movie. In my young adulthood, I would go to midnight premieres all the time. Then I became an actual adult, and going to a three hour movie at midnight, just to get home at 4am, and get up at 7am for work, had Z E R O appeal to me. Fortunately, the midnight movie has grown up with me, and now happens at 6pm, getting me home at a respectable 10, and giving me a full eight hours of sleep. Yay. So I decided that I was going to see Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
When I got to the theater, I realized that I was the first of my friends to arrive. As I looked through the crowd, I thought that I might could find a boyfriend there. Usually, there's an abundance of cuties at these things, who are lost in the sauce of comic culture. The ones who are only focusing on trying to outdo their last con costume, so they don't have to tell lies, cheat on you, and subsequently, just you at all. Then I thought nah. It seems as though accompanying them to these premiers or drops is a big part of that, and I'm 89% antisocial 100% of the time. Also, I don't think I can truly cannot love a man who is still carrying around a mostly empty, too large messenger bag.
I went into the theater blindly. I didn't watch a trailer, and I avoided reviews like the plague. All I knew, was that I wanted to see Batman fade Superman so hard. Which might have happened, and IF it did, then I feel like a terrible human. I also have no knowledge of the DC canon. Plus I'm a professional hater. My official ruling on the movie, is that I loved it, for the most Kelli reason imaginable. Zaddies EVERYWHERE. It was like everywhere you turn, there's another fine man, You know I love that sh*t.
The front runner for this was Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, however if you blink you'll miss him, so that does't count. But Ben Affleck came though in the clutch. Actually, Ben has been in the top 3 of my DILF list for at least five years. He's aging quite well, even if it is movie makeup. He looks great in his suits, and in the Batman costumes. There was a workout montage, where Ben is all sweaty and what not, Peak fun for me. Until Kevin Costner returned from the dead. Then I was like:
Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was the weirdest part of this movie for me. For one, I'm sick and tired of the whole villainous mushroom thing he has going on with his roles. What' happened to innocent, yet snarky Jesse from the Emperor's Club? Still, there was a sexiness to him as Lex Luthor. I was also grappling with the fact of me not finding Henry Cavill attractive at all, the chest hair peaking out from the super suit was working for me.
You should definitely go see Dawn of Justice. Maybe don't bring your kids, because it's a little dark. But 11/10 would see again.
