Watching the cut that dare not speak its name in installments.

So far it seems the principle contributions Wh3don made to the theatrical release were to cut out a lot of black & asian actors (including some playing major DC characters!) and find pervier ways to film Gal Gadot.
This whole endeavor... from mediocre, slapdash theatrical releases to overlong but otherwise satisfying director's cuts... has been a lesson that the real heroes of Hollywood are competent editors, not indulgent auteurs.
James Wan absolutely fixed Aquaman, though. 'Just let him speak underwater, it's fine!'
lol pro-tip just duck out before the Joker epilogue at the end. It adds nothing and needlessly spoils the tone and rhythm of what finally seemed to be a complete and coherent film. He juuuuuust couldn't help himself.
Commission me to make the Save Snyder From Himself Cut
Having stewed on it a bit.

-Yes, it's much better as its own film on many levels. Whedon and studio bullying really butchered the original much worse than I imagined.

-I'm still glad subsequent movies freed themselves from Snyder's highly constricting tone & narratives.
This has all been way too much mental and social energy for any culture to spend on a fizzled, four-year old product designed to put your money into the pocket of AT&T. Now repackaged as new & improved pandemic content so AT&T can sell something bigger to Comcast.

"names match" means literally nothing. If they were the actual people, they'd be loudly bragging that they'd caught them. Not quietly telling congress to then leak on background to frigging Axios.
International terrorist groups like ISIS don't bother with stuff like this. They recruit off the internet. They want people who already have citizenship who can use those rights and privileges to get guns, bank accounts and passports.
Indeed the most egregious recent case of a foreign terror suspect crossing illegally into the United States was a Neo-Nazi who was smuggled across the CANADIAN border. winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/fbi-arrest-for…

few things enrage me quite like people who get mad when the US blows up an empty weapons cache in Syria and never when Assad blows up a full hospital.
For a decade I watched helplessly as a dictator butchered his whole country on Youtube. Sniped, shelled, bombed, starved, tortured, gassed. 100s of 1000s dead.

I absolutely do not fucking care if a couple of his ally's arms dumps in the middle of a fucking desert got scratched.
Literally you're more mad about it than Assad or Iran or any Syrian is. Shut the fuck up.
