Yeah yeah, DC live action TV shows look bad, what's new. But for some ungodly reason, recent DC live action shows have been attempting to up the ante to try to deliver some movie scale action but with the same budget and CG finesse of their tv shows from twenty years ago.

Enter this scene from Crisis on Infinite Earths. Enjoy.

Still better than a lot of Supergirl CGI.

<shrug>

Didn't bother me.

I know what I was expecting
So I wasn’t disappointed.

At least they went with it.

Rather just camera looking at Iris and Lois as the fight goes on

It looked good for something they probably only had a day to shoot. And we got Brandon’s Superman back. What’s the problem?

They don't have a Man of Steel budget so they do what they can. This isn't even the worst they have ever put out, I don't reallly get your reaction.

Doesn't bother me that much. I think the still shots of the buildings is the major issue. Besides that it's fine.

I'm really curious to learn the behind the scenes of the CW budgets. It seems like all of the shows CG/choregraphy just took a noticeable dip 3 or so seasons ago.

Jesus the Arrowverse hate bandwagon is spreading here too?

I can't get away from it.

Also it looks fine. Especially for a huge crossover event.

Also saying all DC TV looks bad is an insult to Gotham. Gotham was one of the greatest looking shows on television. It had better cinematography and visuals than TDK trilogy.

There are so many worse things.
Also it's the CW man, they're doing the best with what they have.

I thought it was pretty cool. Not sure what you're expecting from such a crazy production cycle.

What's wrong with that Luthor? He's a spiteful little shit and he plays the character that way.
Nah. It's one of the best takes on the character in a long ass time.
Interesting take. Probably my favorite version of Lex since TAS
Admittedly I've only seen a few clips here and there, but IMO he brings down every scene I've seen him in

I thought it looked pretty good considering they probably had the little budget left to pull that off after all they're putting into this event.

Besides the close ups where the capes in no way match the speed they are flying at, it looked pretty good to me. *shrug*
