Audio/visual unsynchronised: When Batman gives Superman a respectful thumbs-up after their climactic final fight, his glove moves a full three seconds after his hand

James Hardon

Trivia: About twenty minutes into the film, Superman utters the line, "After this I'm gonna need a vacation." From this point on he says variations of this phrase at ten minute intervals all the way through the post-credits sequence.


Continuity Errors: Despite having been established as invincible earlier in the film, Superman dies when shot in the chest with a pistol by Batman. This performance was ad-libbed by Ben Affleck when he murdered costar Henry Cavill live on camera.

Revealing mistakes: When a frantic Lois Lane pleads with Batman to try and stop the out-of-control Superman, Batman tells her "not to worry", because he's got "one last tool in [his] utility belt". However, when he removes his hand from his utility belt after rummaging around, he is holding nothing and his middle finger is fully outstretched.

Lois Lane: It was cool as hell to see superman flying around and beating up the bad guys but its a pity you always miss it clark.
Clark Kent: ok


Continuity Errors: The scene in which Batman looks directly at the camera to explain how Sucker Punch (2011) is not a sexist movie is replayed verbatim no less than three times throughout the film.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
