I’m switching things up a bit this week and trying something new.  Instead of a Top 10 list that would have either included some bad movies or another Top 5 list, I’m looking at the best and worst movies of Ben Affleck’s career.  Will his most recent movie, Batman v. Superman, make the best or the worst.  Well, if you’ve ready my review, you can probably guess.

Note: There may be minor spoilers, but nothing not given away in the trailer.

Man, this movie is brutal. Not really in the violent way, more so in the it’s terrible and a complete waste of a good idea way.

Batman v. Superman is the follow up to 2013’s Man of Steel and the second movie in the “DC Cinematic Universe”.  It takes us to the aftermath of Superman’s (Henry Cavill) battle against General Zod in Man of Steel and shows us the consequences of having this God-like figure on Earth.  Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, (Ben Affleck) lost some close friends and co-workers during the fight and sees Superman as a threat that must be dealt with.  However a scheme by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) forces them and Wonder Woman to put aside their differences to face a new threat.  I spent 5 minutes writing that summary of the plot, which I think is more time than the people who wrote the movie actually spent on it.

This always happens.  I do a trailer review only for another one I want to talk about to come out a day later.  Oh well, getting to the main point- Warner Bros must have fired the marketing person for this movie because this trailer is 2938493 times better than the last one we saw that gave away the whole movie.  It opens with a beautiful fight with Batman taking out some baddies. 

Now that we have finished looking back at 2015, it’s time to look ahead to 2016.  Looking at the big name titles coming out next year, I see a lot of sequels.  For better or worse, this list reflects that.  Don’t hate the player, hate the game.  I can’t help that they are making sequels that excite me.  Obviously, we don’t know about all the movies coming out next year yet.  For example, we usually don’t learn about movies that are awards contenders until shortly before their releases next fall/winter.  Though they were in limited release in 2015, The Revenant and The Hateful 8 have yet to be released where I live, so they qualify for this list.  Do they make the list? Keep reading to find out.

Alright, so this is my first ever review for a trailer.  Will I start doing this more often or is it a one time thing? I have no idea.  What I do know is I had to talk about this trailer because… oh boy. If you haven’t seen the trailer because you desire to see the movie fresh definitely stop reading here because there may be potential spoilers.  You have been warned.  I’ll also include a link to the new trailer below in case you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again.
