In a Nutshell. Mini reviews of movies old and new. No fuss. No spoilers. And often no sleep.

DC Comics, Warner Bros. & director Zack Snyder clumsily rush into an attempt to create a comic book movie universe as large as MCU's with the overly zealous Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Broody Batsy dukes it out with frowny Supes while shadowy Wonder Woman makes her big-screen debut and in the process steals any scene she's in.
By borrowing mostly from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, the film promises a load of unintentional silliness amongst it's seriousness and hilariously clunky dialogue that a 14-year old could write.   Then toss Snyder into the mix and you're guaranteed to go big but left wondering where all the substance got lost in something this huge.
On the plus side, there's the odd exciting moment, plenty of pretty looking visuals and in all honesty, I look forward to seeing Affleck & Irons continue as Batsy & Alfred in their inevitable stand-alone film.

2 really terrible dream sequences out of 5
