Holy crap.  Just wow.

What a mess.

I will say this.  It was colorful as hell.  Like eye poppingly.

But the primary entertainment we got out of this movie was pausing it and laughing our asses off *at* it.  At one point my wife asked "Did they watch this movie before they released it?"

Thoughts I had as the movie played (and we watched the whole trainwreck with fascination):

Tom Cruise has to be somewhere laughing his dick off at Nicole Kidman in that fish/lobster costume on dinosaur beach. 

Dolph Lundgren probably leapt at the opportunity to look that blurry on screen.  He didn't even look this good in Rocky IV.

Willem Dafoe has set back "manbun" fashion by decades.  At least.

Jason Momoa's career as anything but Aquaman in an equally ridiculous sequel has to be over.  He does not have Schwarzenegger's ability to deliver cheesy one liners.  And nearly all of his speaking parts were Schwarzeneggeresque cheesy one liners.

I highly recommend people watch this movie for one reason and one reason only.  It is a spectacle.  That's for sure.

I pretty much feel the same way you do. When the movie first came out, I didn't really have any desire to see it. I figured I'd just wait to when it gets a digital release.

It's a visual masterpiece, with great effects and (as you suggested) beautiful color. But everything else was "meh."

Honestly, DC hasn't made a great superhero in a long time.

You know, I had no idea that was Nicole Kidman until the end credits.

And the Dolph Lundgren character, I kept thinking, "His face looks so familiar, but I don't know who it is." Again, it took the end credits to help me ID him, which was funny because I just recently saw him in "Creed 2."
