I'm not the biggest Spider-Man fan and haven't enjoyed any of them so far other than the admittedly brilliant Spider-Man 2, but this one was a lot of fun. Keaton was fantastic.

Don't go if you've got superhero fatigue or if you need Cyborg, Aquaman, or Flash explained to you. But if you don't, and you have fondness for the characters or loved the JL cartoon, you'll probably really like this? They also finally get Superman right

I'll be seeing this flick in a few weeks. Finding it surprisingly difficult to get anyone to go with me.

I don't blame anyone for being turned off by Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, even Suicide Squad (which is a complete mess but one I actually kind of liked), and the fact that they switched directors/did a bunch of reshoots, had the rumors about Affleck leaving (he definitely is), etc didn't help drum up much enthusiasm. But I think in general people will like this a lot more. The 38% or whatever on RT is getting a lot of attention but the average rating for it is 5.2/10 vs just 3.9/10 for BvS, and the audience score is 86% vs 63% for BvS, so it's a lot more fan-friendly and fun, even if it's not necessarily a masterpiece.

Middle Murton wants to go.  Maybe Sunday.

Is the color palate as bad as it looks? Every commercial it looks like they are living in hell. The cloulds all seem to be blood red.

That's just the final battle, there's a very specific reason the skies are blood red and you can actually follow the action pretty well. As far as colors throughout the rest of the movie they're much brighter and clearer than in the usual Snyder movie, Whedon definitely removed a bunch of grey filters.
The reviewer in the San Francisco Chronicle had an interesting comment.  He suggested that since Superman could do everything alone the rest of the League was superfluous.  He did allow that maybe Batman could bring Superman his coffee. 

Pah. Superman doesn't need coffee.

But he would certainly politely accept it to make Bruce feel useful.

Especially with some Irish liquor and whipped cream.

If you saw the 1974 version with Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot don't go to see this movie.  If you haven't seen the 1974 version then download it from Amazon.  Whatever you do, don't bother with this Kenneth Branaugh attempt at outdoing the old version.  Branaugh twists himself into a pretzel trying to show off what an original director he is.  In one scene shows three people having a conversation by putting the camera directly over their heads!   Why?  Don't ask me.  Maybe it was only to be able to say "See how innovative I am. No one has done this before."  The movie has some very attractive scenes, but then I am a sucker for 1930ish art deco.  The Albert Finney version did Agatha Christie correctly.  You watch the plot unfold slowly and then in the final scene the quirky, preposterous looking detective gathers all of the suspects together and shows that he was paying attention all along.  In this version Branaugh solves mysteries as he goes along, deflating the plot while he does it.  Oh.  The moustache.  Finney had that tiny handlebar.  So did Suchet in the PBS series.  Branaugh's moustache is a bizarre mess that Christie's prissy little detective would be too embarrassed to go out with in public.   Save your money.
