  1. First words in BvS Dawn of Justice:

    “There was a time above. A time before. There were perfect things. Diamond absolutes. How things fall. Things on Earth. And what falls… is fallen.”

    If an all powerful being came to Earth with the pure intention to protect and serve the greater good, how would this being be treated? And would we blame this all powerful being for our loss and pain? Would we cast judgement, defy, and even possibly attempt to wage war against this all powerful being? Or will we still be hopeful, despite who’s here, pull together, and move forward united. No matter which aliens show up. I appreciate how this movie addresses those questions for me and more.

    V. Gandhi Superman Media Response Montage:

    “We, as a population on this planet, have been looking for a Savior. 90% of people believe in a Higher Power, and every religion believes in some sort of Messianic figure. And when this Savior character actually comes to Earth, we want to make him abide by our rules? We have to understand that this is a paradigm shift. We have to start thinking beyond politics.”

    Bruce’s words to Alfred:

    “Jesus, Alfred. Count the dead. Thousands of people. What’s next? Millions? He has the power to wipe out the entire human race, and if we believe there’s even a 1% chance that he’s our enemy, we have to take that as an absolute certainty. And we have to destroy him.”

    But in spite of judgement and ensuing war, there are good people in his life that help him find hope inside still.

    Lois’ words to Superman after his judgement:

    “That farmer’s dream is all some people have. It’s all that gives them hope. (Touching Superman’s symbol for Hope) This means something.”

    Superman with his dead father on the mountain:

    Clark: “Did the nightmares ever stop?”
    Mr. Kent: “Yeah. When I met your mother. She gave me faith that there’s good in this world. She was my world. I miss you son.”
    Clark: “I miss you too, Dad.”

    We’ll all be judged. There will be those who will accuse us without knowing anything about us. Let’s not feed those demons, but nurture hope. Whether that was the intended message for not, thank you Zack Snyder for this underrated classic. I love Dawn of Justice.
