Razzie Award-Winning Movies That Are Actually Worth Watching

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” didn’t just get kryptonite from critics and fall short of its billion dollar box office expectations. It didn’t just effectively kill off the DC Extended Universe as a viable competitor to the monocultural monolith known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It also brought four Razzie awards out of eight nominations to the Hall of Justice, such as worst supporting actor for Jesse Eisenberg, worst on-screen couple for Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, worst screenplay, and worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel. Not good. And yet, we’re defending it.

As a long-awaited franchise entry starring two of the most famous pop culture characters ever, “Batman v Superman” was a failure. As a cinematic “elseworlds” tale from “visionary director” Zack Snyder that operates on a wavelength unlike any comic book movie before or since, it’s in a category of its own.

If the “Dark Knight” trilogy was Wagnerian opera and the MCU is crowd-pleasing pop rock, “Batman v Superman” is Swedish death metal. It hits with all the subtlety of Batman swinging Superman around, but there’s an entire internet subculture of “Snyder Bros” who will defend it to the death, as well as more mainstream outlets who preach its merits. No, we’re not saying #RestoreTheSnyderverse; we’re saying that its bold, brash, and unrelenting vision is definitely worth watching.
