I really enjoyed the Snyder Cut, but who can sit through such a long, dour movie more than once? This is the fun version. The first Flash scene is beautiful with a well chosen song replacement, and the ending is a lot more fun with pop and rock music. The songs are mixed a bit loudly, in my opinion, and drown out some dialogue. I would watch this again before the original.
The music!! I'd so much fun watching the Grindhoused.
The studio guys shall take cues how to make the superheroe movies that all kind of seriousness is washed down by the Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix in the background, upping the comic cool-factor.
Great work, Gieferg.
I find grindhouse versions quite tiring after a while and i didnt expect to sit through 2hrs of one, but this cut was simply to fun not to. With this said i didn't finish any of the other versions I've seen of this movie. Most Snyder films feel like they were written by an Autist, this one especially. In here scenes that put me off or made me cringe, like most stuff involving flash were made bearable or even fun, through the right use of music and visual effects. The narrative is surprisingly strong, i didn't expect that much story going in and for it to make any sense. The only negative i could bring up would be that sometimes its hard to make out the dialogue over the music. But for that you have the polish subs, don't understand polish, still preferred watching it with subs on. In closing recommend it over any other version out there.
Edit: Before anybody takes offense to the Autist comment, i meant no disrespect. I just wanted to express that Snyder's characters and dialogue lack a certain human touch.
While this is in no way a "definitive version" or replacement for either existing official release, this Grindhouse version of Justice League uses some of the best elements from both Wheadon and Snyder's cuts, while keeping the film down to a manageable length and adding tons of grindhouse style camp. What's really impressive is the how the tone of the story is still serious, with almost all of the awkward Joss Wheadon jokes removed save for a few that actually work quite well.
The best part of this edit, however, is the added music! Classic rock throughout and themes for each character makes this feel like a true exploitation film that could have been released in the 70s. (The Flash's "theme" is absolutely brilliant and put a huge smile on my face!)
To start off, i did not like the Movies.
One wasjust bad and the far to long cut was far to long.
Also, i couldnt shake the fact that thje story keeps beeing weak.
So why waste another 2hours than ? Becauzse Gieferg !
His treatmant of Alien was one of the funniest and best Grindhouse touch ups i have ever seen and i wanne see all of them now.
JL is fun, its weird with that 70´s Music and it fits like crazy.
The seriousness of the OG movie is now on a believable level and i highly enjoyed the watch.
