    Bad Trip

    Societies are funny things. They consist off a thousand tiny rules: what to say, what not to say, how to behave and most important when to behave in a certain way. When everybody follows these rules everything should be fine and you as a participant of this society know what to expect. And pranks can have a fascinating effect: they ignore this rules for while and people just do not know what hits them.

    Damn, I enjoyed this a lot more the second time around.
    Is it still a convoluted mess of storytelling and is the final battle still a weird CGI-massacre mainly here to set up Justice League? Yes, yes of course it is?

Mixed with a little bit of commentary on science and myth just makes a hugely lovable film.
    This is a perfect example of the story, the director and the cast fitting together perfectly.
