Nothing makes it beyond “meh” for me though I haven’t seen Shazam yet.

Solidly Good

Shazam

Watchable, but objectively not well made

Aquaman
Suicide Squad

Watchable, but eminently forgettable

Wonder Woman

Meh

Justice League

A solid opening 15 minutes that devolves into poorly made garbage

Batman vs Superman

Legit one of the 5 worst superhero flicks ever

Man of Steel

I'm leaving Man of Steel out of this one - it was a bipolar movie. Some moments (usually when Snyder relies on visual imagery) are surreal, others are awful and overall, Snyder doesn't understand the character. Plus, I'd watch "Superman casually flies on a sunny day" by my level of fanboyish

Here's my rating system

Great

Wonder Woman

That's What I'm Talking About

Shazam, Aquaman,

No, Just No

BvS,

Really?

Justice League

Suicide Squad was a bad movie by all accounts but I enjoyed Will Smith, Viola Davis and Margot Robbie. So, it's hard to say unwatchable. BvS had two moments that could have been a pastiche that would have been enjoyable enough to watch over and over again - Batman's Warehouse fight and Wonder Woman's entrance and the trinity fight against Doomsday

Great

Aquaman and Shazam! Both felt like whole movies and labors of love. Both also had 80s vibes movies.

Good

Wonder Woman. Honestly it was great until the end. The final fight kinda fell apart.

Ok

Suicide Squad. The only thing that kept this movie from becoming pure trash is some pretty fun performances.

Justice League. Like a third of this movie is pretty good the rest is either boring or trash.

Trash
BvS and MoS: good visuals and set pieces means shit of the story is boring and you're just gonna tear apart the personality traits people like about a character

I don't know that it's "better", but at least I remember what happened in Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman was a fine movie that was inoffensive and perfectly mediocre, but as soon as it was over, I forgot virtually everything that happened in it. It was unremarkable in every way.

Like, Suicide Squad was a poorly made movie that I thought was kind of dumb fun. Wonder Woman was a well made movie that was completely nondescript.

It does have a “so had it’s good” vibe I guess.  I was looking forward to SS and wasn’t all that excited for WW and both movies surprised me in different ways.

my thoughts so far


Good: Aquaman, Wonder Woman. I mean neither are mind blowing to me, but overall they're good movies. Aquaman was fun, but had some stretches where it dragged, and the more I look at him in the movie the more I think Patrick Wilson would have been a perfect physical match for the classic Aquaman. Wonder Woman was good, but had some third act issues.


Okay: Man of Steel, Justice League, and mmmmmaybe Suicide Squad. I never hated MOS like other people have. Justice League was underwhelming, but we finally got Superman the way he should be in the DCEU, and it was probably better than what we would have gotten otherwise. suicide Squad had a good opening, a shit middle, and a decent end.


Bad: Batman V. Superman:Dawn of Justice. After three years, I really don't have to say anymore here.



have yet to see Shazam.

Naw.  They tried to create a universe with that one but since it failed, they started over with Man of Steel.
