*MY THOUGHTS ON THE UPCOMING EXTENDED CUT
I've already said what I had to say about this horrendous piece of shit HERE! However I must say my piece about the Extended Cut trend that its destroying DCEU at the moment. We all knew it David Ayer was lying through his teeth when he said there would be no Extended Cut because the movie we all saw was unfinished and this new version is said to "fix" the problems. This is just like the DLC trend in video games where they ask you to pay extra on top of your hard earned £60 to get content that should already be on the disc. Why do we stand for this?
If this Extended Cut supposedly fixes the movie, then why the fuck was this not the version we saw? Why did we see a film where it was obvious so much was taken from the film to the point where it was almost impossible to follow as a cohesive narrative. I'll tell you why David Ayer, DC and WB lied to us all, because they KNEW that if fans knew they wasn't seeing the finished product in theatres, it would not have sold well. And in a desperate attempt to cash in on Blu Ray sales because the version everyone saw was unfinished, now there suddenly IS an extended version coming out! This is complete bullshit! If this trend continues, I am boycotting DCEU films. There is so much better out there that deserve your time and money.
GIVE US A COMPLETE FILM IN THEATRES NEXT TIME, DC!!
