“Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” Is The Most Disappointing Movie Of All-Time

James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” is set to be released on August 6th, and I’m super amped to see it. I love James Gunn as a writer and as a director and I’ve loved everything I’ve seen from this movie so far. Early buzz on it is really strong as well. As excited as I am, I can’t help but be reminded of how insanely disappointing David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad” film from 5 years ago was. That was a movie that had some of the best trailers I’ve ever seen, and yet the film just SUCKED. Outside of a few committed performances, almost everything about it fell flat, especially Jared Leto’s laughably bad performance as the Joker. But it made me beg the question, what is the single most disappointing movie of all-time?

I feel like the answer to this is actually pretty clear, so clear in fact that I feel like in order to have a fun conversation about disappointing films, you almost have to strip it from the record. “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” has to take the cake. There’s entire documentaries on YouTube that talk exclusively about what a monumental disappointment this film was. Thankfully, I feel like the passage of time has opened the door for more potential answers.

I’ve had some serious contenders that instantly came to mind in regards to the movie that has disappointed me the most in my lifetime. The “Transformers” sequels were incredibly disappointing, “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” broke my heart as well, but the movie that stands out to me as probably the single most disappointing film of all-time is Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.” I don’t really want to go in depth about this. This blog is meant to be more of a discussion and not a review. But to this day, I continue to be amazed by bad this movie was. I wasn’t crazy about “Man Of Steel” but hey, Batman vs Superman? That’s a once in a lifetime dream. Well, that dream turned out to be a nightmare. I know this movie (and the entire Snyderverse) has it’s defenders. I’ve listened to those people, I just don’t understand them. This was a film that took everything I love about the Batman/Superman dynamic and mutilated it. It almost does this movie a disservice to say that I was disappointed. I was more floored. I still cannot believe the decisions that were made in this film. 

I’m sure people will disagree with me and that’s fine, but I’m genuinely curious to know which movie disappointed you the most? Lemme know in the comments.
