Even though I did find Justice League entertaining enough, there’s no denying there was a certain amount of disappointment leading to the build-up and not being able to see what was originally intended, not to mention the deleted footage seen in the various trailers. If you go in just expecting a insubstantial popcorn flick, it’s fine, but it certainly did not live up to the title.

The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Ultimate Edition does plenty things to correct the hacked up theatrical version though if you didn’t like the plot the first go-around, the UE won’t change your mind.

However, and acknowledging it doesn’t hold a candle to the Donner classic, it’s a new beginning for what is hopefully a serviceable franchise and universe.

Secretariat isn’t a particularly special movie but it is a nice one featuring some fine performances, thrilling horse racing sequences, tight and romanticized direction from Randall Wallace and beautiful photography by cinematographer Dean Semler.

While the picture and audio Quality are top notch and the disc is filled with hours of bonus features, it’s hard to recommend a purchase. This is an entertaining flick but not something I plan on going back to until its inevitable sequel comes out. It’s still a great rental an excellent popcorn flick for the entire family.
