    Man, who decided on the structure of this documentary? I came in here wanting to see all about the fun times and debauchery of the club. That all comes and goes in the first half hour, then the second act is all about the trial that closed the club, then the final act is all the aftermath and fallout post-disco scene.

    Everything that Batman V Superman failed at, this movie succeeds with. New characters are naturally integrated into the story, both sides have sympathetic logic, and everyone is well-developed.

    Spider-Man is handled really well, with probably the most accurate and well-executed film version of Peter Parker (even if it is in a pretty short amount of time). Characters that I've never cared much for, like Ant-Man and Scarlet Witch, are played perfectly here and at the…
