I Went To See Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice

I’ve been keeping up with the news about Batman V Superman since back before it even had the title. I’ve glanced at some of the reviews of the film. All the ones I skimmed were negative. Saturday I went down to my favorite theater, or the easiest theater for me to get to, on Bardstown Road and got my ticket for the 1:50PM showing.

The guy behind the ticket podium ripped my ticket for me and said that it was the first door on the left. I couldn’t see when I got inside. I heard Ben Affleck talking. I tried to find an empty seat in the dark, but something just wasn’t right. I went back outside. The guy who ripped my ticket for me pointed to the other door, on the left. I had gone in the door on the right. Same movie, half over. Oops. When I got in the correct theater, I had to watch 20 minutes of crazy local ads that make you feel bad for having your phone out. Like, I’ll turn my phone off when the lights go off. Leave me alone. I turned my phone off after that anyway and waited. The seats were so little. My knees were touching the row in front of me. I’m about 5’8, which is not very tall. A lot of people are taller than I am. A lot, a lot. I forgot all about my leg room problem when Ben Affleck came on, being all Batman-like at the beginning of movie, which told me that this was a Batman movie, not a Superman movie. Ben Affleck was a good Batman. I missed a part in the middle that I think explained everything about what Lex had going on, but whatever. Like when I went to see Deadpool last week, I went by myself. This time wasn’t as nice because I didn’t have the theater to myself. I had to awkwardly sink into my chair and pull my legs up into my chest when someone wanted to get by. No rows of seats should be that close together, honestly.

So what’s next? Wonder Woman gets her own film, right? That seems like it’s going to work out. I think it’ll all work out. The reviews for this Batman V Superman movie were so negative, and while I understand some of the points they were making, and even after talking with some friends about it, I still feel like there was too much expected of it. I mean, what did you all want? Gone With The Wind? You would’ve hated that more. Well, I would’ve. Not that I hate Gone With The Wind. Not that I don’t. Where was I? Right. Decent Batman movie. Like, 8 out of 10. Don’t cry, Ben Affleck!

leave me a comment below so that I’m not talking to the void. It would also be nice if the content reached past my ridiculously long sidebar 😉

I’m Eric Shay Howard and I’m a bad blogger. I’m also an author. I live in Louisville, Kentucky and work at a law firm.

I’m currently a graduate student in a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program. Lately, I’ve been blogging about that. I also have a Master of Business Administration and have completed a few certificate programs in Human Resource related studies. Occasionally I blog about business and other MBA-related things. Blogging about my day, bad dates, or package delivery issues are also not out of the question.


I wrote a fiction collection called Crushes and self-published it because sometimes I just like to push buttons and see what happens. I think this book is pretty alright, I suppose. Buying a copy helps me out. Feel free to leave a review on Amazon as well.

Blogs and People I Like

Here are some other blogs and people that I like to read or keep up with. The order is arbitrary because I started out going for alphabetical order but then got busy with classes or something so now sometimes I just rearrange them for no reason.


Equipment Test! Podcast Artwork

I made a really bad podcast over the summer called Equipment Test! because I bought a microphone. But if you like really bad podcasts, you can listen to it here, or find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other places.
