@jb681131: Well, basically the idea was take Uricchio's theory of Gotham City by representational goegoraphy, and extrapalate that out to how it affects the story and creation of the Batman identity. I don't do archetecture but if you want something to read on that front there's "In Search of an Urban Dstopia" and the sources at the bottom of this video

@dernman: Why? it's a movie review, those things come up when discussing it. Whenever ever you are reading a review fo any media there is an implicit spoiler warning. I don't spoil anything agregious (spoiler alert the First War has been rewritten twice before the movie already came out).

@taquie: Those votes are were given before the film was released, its a similar thing to BvS IMDB rating getting brigaded as a means to combat the negative word of mouth the reviews created. Samething happens on Amazon as well. It's all a bunch of reactionary "scoring" if you could call it that.

It's awkward because Cavill is a solid actor with decent charisima and he looks the part. But Snyder just turns him into a hollow shell of a thing that operates on iconography, not a character with subjectivity he dosen't have any. Superman's supposed to inspire people and instead Snyder gives us an uninspiration Superman consitently morose and aloof, that "heroic" montage in BvS is a laborious slog. Snyder's view of heroisim contradicts the essence and long standing understanding of Superman and then people wonder why thesemovies aren't critically well recived.

@gxrevolution: I think since she came back in '52'. It's just one of those things because they haven't really used that much because Batwoman never really interacted wtih the larger Bat-Family that much.

@chichen_nuggeg: Never said they had no part in the mainstream of (superhero) comics, just that it is not the only tonality the genre can and should play with.

An extra 30 minutes may make it a more functional movie but that won't change how deeply misguided adn disapointing it's view of the characters are.

@thepreface: and your reply just proved my point. Neither of those characters where "bitchy" only so much as that constitues exerting their own desire for saftey and emotionally complete relationships. And she didn't break up with Ollie because he made a decision, it's because he made a decision without informing her (perspective wife already long term live in girlfriend). I'm not sure how many relationships you've been in (judging by your langauge not much or very short) but open healthy communication between partners is pretty much the key to the whole thing. And that healthy communication is something they showed them doing all throughout the season up until the crossover when Ollie did the stupid vow of silence.

@thepreface: Well this show's always been a soap opera.

The "Felicity and Friends" arguments to be hilariously over blown and otherwise not understanding how TV functions. Felicity as of the last episode was effictevly written off the show to a supporting role, not that I buy it's Rickards is still a regular in S5. The show has barely done anything to like over do the Felicity, it's used her at Palmer tech to create silo'd 'C' plots. Not that you did this but there's also been this phenomena around turning on her after she leaves Ollie (both times) which is funny in how it denies her arguments as to why being with Ollie is no longer what she wants emotionally/physically but at the sametime she's some how taken over this show and it's all about her. It's a lot like the Skyler White reaction, the logical one in a crazy world.
