Elise decides Alan Moore is the problem with Zack Snyder's WATCHMEN, defends BATMAN V SUPERMAN as "Romantic art." Dave shouts about Kant, explains how both Snyder and Moore get superheroes wrong, while inveighing against some guy named Alex Ross. And much, much more in this epic discussion of a couple of movies they didn't really like, that don't have much to do with time travel, for your mental delectation.
