Title: Batman v Superman (IMDb)
Directed by: Zack Synder
Written by: Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer
Year: 2016
Length: 151 min.
Rating: 12
My IMDb rating: 4/10

This is really difficult. I think there’re two ways to review this movie. The first is reviewing Batman v Superman as a movie without any knowledge of or connection to DC comics and their superheroes. The second is reviewing it as a movie featuring the most beloved superheroes of the DC Universe. As you can imagine, these two reviews would vary significantly.

As it is, I am a comic book fan. While Superman was the first Superhero I came to know, it was Batman who I came to love the most.

Which is why I cannot say that I liked Batman v Superman.

Please note that this review contains spoilers for the entire movie.

I have watched this movie twice so far. The second time was just as good as the first. Deadpool manages to make me laugh hysterically and cringe inwardly mere seconds apart. They went all out on that R-rating.

M. C. Escher Exhibition in Brühl, Germany

Hands drawing themselves. An infinite stairway. Those may be the most well known pieces by the Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) whose work is currently on display in the Max-Ernst-Museum in Brühl.

Drawing Hands, 1948 Lithograph.

At the Haarlem School of Architecture and Decorative Arts, Escher first studied architecture before switching to decorative arts. There he met Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita who greatly influenced and encouraged him to pursue art. Escher began his artistic career by studying animals and nature, especially the landscapes of Italy and Spain. There, his fascination with intricate decorative designs took root.
