It may seem strange, but it's the metric DC earned. Had Phase 1 crapped out four unwatchable insults against the artistic medium of cinema, they'd owe me four consecutive critical hits. And until they redeem themselves, they run the risk of raising my standards if another certifiably Rotten movie is added to their body of work.
Their individual quality, be it real or imagined by yourself, is unimportant.
Your weird metric aside, go watch Joker NOW. It's one of the movies of the year. It's not even DCEU so your metric shouldn't stand in this case. Of you didn't watch joker, are you gonna skip out on all of the animated DC movies? And all of the WB movies? I would say you are only hurting yourself here by skipping out on enjoyable movies and again, go watch Joker NOW. You won't regret it.
Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also
