There were a lot of foundational issues to be found in Justice League (2017), but the Adaptation hosts were able to find a couple moments to love in the film.
Dorin and Kendyl discuss “Story of Your Life” by Ted Chiang and Arrival (2016), get into the paradox of the Book of Life, and wonder at how the adaptation amped up the dramatics.
Question(s) of the Week: Were the added dramatics of the movie worth it? And for the bonus round, did you understand/interpret the story and movie differently than we discussed?
The hosts are hot and cold in this discussion of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). We can’t love certain casting choices any more, but full-on hate others; we love certain plot points, but found others confusing.
Question of the Week: Did this movie get you excited for more of the DC universe or did it discourage you from wanting to see future movies?
In discussing Zach Snyder’s film Man of Steel, the hosts touch on the decidedly darker tone, how this Superman will fit into the future Justice League movie and how the characters compare to their previous incarnations.
