Man of Steel.

Been watching this on repeat for like the last twenty minutes, epic trailer.


I'm not the biggest fan of Supes, in fact I remember many a time bitching about it with Kaos that I didn't think it you could make it interesting. I'd watch the shit out of this movie.

after 400 viewings only one thing bothers me.

He says "I have so many questions" then he only states one.

I can't make out with lil' clark says at the start, I think it's "the world 's too big" but not sure.

yeah. i imagine his "super hearing" is playing up.

and they totally stole his flight take off from the matrix.

The film doesn't look like typical super shit, I'll give it that.
nah...This looks even more boring.

I wonder what you thought of the finished product.

I loved it, there are a few things I didn't enjoy but overall it was a interesting take on the character and wasn't a snooze fest the last few Superman live actions have been.

One point of contention, that I short of agree with was *SPOILERS*

The changed death of daddy kent.

Here's a bit I posted somewhere else on my view of the matter.


It was a heavy handed way to send the message that Pa Kent's death has always given Clark (in other versions of the story), that there are some things that even he, with all his strength and powers cannot stop, there are some people that no matter how hard he tries he simply can't possibly save. And the lesson he seems to take away in this movie is, bullshit, I'm going to try anyway which works out well for the planet Earth, in a net kind of way.

Costner had a very mixed message, 'stay hidden don't expose your powers, even to save me but one day you will be the saviour of us all, that you can be'.

I'm not sure if was it wanting Clark to have a proper childhood or he just had mixed feeling himself about his son being in danger in general, as you would regardless of how invulnerable he might seem. Superman is usually about the story of the two dads that he has and the lessons he learns from both of them, in this they both taught the same one which was self-sacrifice for the good of others, they both died so he could live and live in hiding (or normalcy) respectively.

I still think comic versions makes a stronger emotional impact that running into a tornado to save a dog, just doesn't give you, but it's a larger action moment and some idiotic heroism, so think I get why they did it that way in a blockbuster movie sense.

I thought it was kinda stupid and forced.

Should have stayed on Krypton. I got why the didnt, but I feel like as soon as they left...movie interest dwindled.

also Zod's plan was to terraform earth into a new krypton.

Fuck "Uninhabited Mars"....which already looks like Krypton...Nope its gotta be earth.
Then superman pulls a dick move and destroys the usb thumb drive.

I couldn't believe it, between the two of em nobody thought...

"Yo. Theirs a couple other planets we can take a look at. We can make a new krypton there, and we can hang out and it'll be cool."

All earth has to worry about is acknowledging they're not alone, and they have new neighbors.
not having half its populations, or atleast 90% or metro(new york) destroyed, cuzz two dumb assess cant turn on their thinking caps, cuzz theyre too busy flexing and being emo.

fuck that. fuck superman, and fuck this movie.

Mars doesn't have a large enough mass to sustain much of an atmosphere over time.

Although considering how fast it was altering the earth, maybe that shouldn't have been a problem.

Yes, that weird super terraform process looked like it could have made any plannet work.
perhaps the moon even.

They never clearly stated any legit reasons why it needed to be earth, other than "we wanna be super dicks."

Happy Birthday!


Apparently Bats v Supes was as terribles as the trailers said.

I've not seen either film and probably won't on that glowing recommendation but here's a fun fact. This Superman is from Jersey. :D
