The Flash (2023)

The Flash was decent, not great but far from the worst movie I’ve seen, even within the DCEU (or whatever they’re calling it now). Some parts were brilliant (I about died during the Back to the Future discussion; IYKYK), some were not good at all. I’d say it was about 25% amazing, 25% awful, and 50% just okay. Regardless of what you think of Ezra Miller, I will say that his performance was excellent. Who knew he could actually make his version of Barry Allen seem mature at times! The way they depicted the various other multiverses was creative and heartfelt, and the music made liberal use of the Danny Elfman theme, which made my heart sing. I’m just sorry the overall story/execution didn’t live up to those positive traits.
