Batman V Superman review or why I like Zack Snyder

The red capes are comming.
So we watched Batman v Superman on friday and we had differing opinions on it just like literally all of the internetz has.

Let's start with the bad things, Jesse Eisenberg is NOT Lex Luthor in this movie and that is both a fact in the movie but it is also glareingly obvious for people watching, his performance has almost nothing in common with the character we know from the comics, yes I know it's supposed to be his son in the movie too but the weird twitchiness was really offputting for Philip, I was okay with it, thought it was fun but ultimately didn't really care about it. What I just said about the character Lex Luthor not being the one from the comics? Yeah that's a common theme throughout this movie, Superman isn't quite Superman, Batman isn't quite Batman but if you ignore that fact I think there's a really decent adaptation here. The main point for why I really enjoyed this movie, Philip was indifferent to it and others may hate it is that I really enjoy Zack Snyders style of filmmaking, if he does it intentionally or not I'll never know but there are a TON of small little nods and details that explain the supposed "plotholes" of this movie, an example for that is A monologue at the end of the movie that hints at the fact that the dreamsequences in the movie might be caused by Darkseid and that Alex Luthor also had these dreams, slowly turning him mad while Batman stayed relatively sane. I've heard ideas about this movie sowing the seeds for an injustice movie which I personally don't disagree with but have an alternate take on, I think that they will do The Return of Superman with the four different Superman imposters(?) and one of THOSE is the evil Superman we saw in the trailers, not an injustice storyline, both possibilities are possible and plausible, mine maybe even less plausible but ultimately I think more good guy superman would be a better idea in future DC movies.


Phil's opinion:

Deniz and I didn't really talk about the movie like we usually do afterwards. Thus I feel like writing a bit about my two cents on Bats v Sups. First of all - Batfleck was probably my favorite part in the whole movie. So much in fact that I've watched Gone Girl because a) I haven't seen it and it's supposedly good and b) it has Ben Affleck in it. But I digress. While I am not jizz-in-my-pants-the-movie-was-so-good-it-made-me-literally-retarded-hyped like I was after Mad Max: Fury Road, I did genuinely enjoy the film. Even more so than Avengers (and probably every Marvel movie of the last few years, excluding Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy). So if the Devil would pin me down and make me watch Batman v Superman whilst pounding my sweet, sweet ass for all eternity...I uuhhh... I mean... uuuh... Hell wouldn't be that terrible. And that is coming from someone who doesn't like capeshit movies that much anymore.

Also please notice me Batfleck-senpai!

- Wake me up
- Wake me up inside
- I can't wake up
- Save me, P.

Alice's new job

It's an inside joke. If you don't get it you're not worthy
I think I stole the Skittles emporium thing from the simpsons or another tv show but they did it with m and m's. If someone knows where that's from please tell me, I've been thinking about it since I wrote this comic.
In other news, I still haven't watched more than the first episode of House of cards even though I used to be so hyped on the show the third season just took all of my hype from me I think. Daredevil though?! Still only watched the first episode but I might binge that shit real soon because that first episode of season 2 was fucking DOPE.

Streetcorners and dogs

I'm oddly proud of our youtube ventures and adventures. I realise we don't have many views on the channel yet but what that comes down to is that we've never been marketing geniuses, I hope we can make up for that by my immense charm and Philip and Louis' immense...something.
I've been trying to make these texts longer because Philip told me he enjoys reading them, you know who else might enjoy reading them? EVERYONE YOU'VE EVER KNOWN EVEN JUST BY PASSING SO SPREAD THE WORD OF THIS AMAZING WEBCOMIC!!!111!1!

I apologize for that, it just sorta came out of me, sorry.


Sunday youtube upload here:

P.S.: I know I could put the link within a word but maybe a more direct approach makes more people click.

I really don't wanna title this Goethe and nazi imagery

"Das also war des Pudels Kern!" - Vers 1323 / Faust
But I suppose that's what I just did. I am a huge fan of Goethe even though there are some questionable parts of the man and his Body of work, the Things that I had the pleasure to read were always great, Faust is still one of my favourite books of all time.
On another note, again this sunday there is a new Video on our YouTube channel, chronicling my s̶̶l̶̶o̶̶w̶̶ ̶̶d̶̶e̶̶c̶̶e̶̶n̶̶t̶̶ immediate plummet into madness. Check it out here.
Also, another reminder that we will NO LONGER upload on wednesdays.

We're taking our jobs back!

They're stealing our jobs!
No one took them from us, we were just being lazy but it's a nice sounding line.
I'm afraid I've got to be the bearer of sad News today, as of next week, there will be no more wednesday Comic updates anymore, instead we will go back to the once weekly Format we started with. Now I know that you're all heartbroken over this fact but Philip just doesn't currently have the time to draw the wednesday Comics anymore, HOWEVER the YouTube Uploads will stay twice a week, wednesdays and sundays so if you can't bear living without our one of a Kind Humor on wednesdays, never fear, go here. like comment and subscribe all our stuff there.

On a sidenote, I've got a new Laptop and I still have to get used to it, I have no idea how to get rid of the capitalization in the text yet which is why it has this weird form.
