Just Saw Man of Steel

Can't believe an adult actually used Dragonball Z to describe something.  My kids stopped watching that poo when they were like 10 years old.

DragonBall Z has been around long enough that it's not just a show that only kids have watched it, DBZ has been around since 1989 yeah, that's 24 years and DBZ is not just kids references now.

i heard about that but I didn't see it in the movie. after an early "smallville" tv show reference, i started looking at things in the back ground. i left thinking the sequel will deal with lex luthor and possibly brainiac

Saw it last night with my 17 y.o.  It was good, not great.

 

A lot more sci fi than previous versions of Superman, so I liked that.

 

They drug it out a tad towards the end...   I think they were aiming for "most epic fight scene ever" territory.

 

 

Didn't top Avengers imo... and still not the best movie of 2013 for me, that goes to Star Trek: Into Darkness.

 

fwiw I thought Amy Adams nailed Lois Lane and the Zod actor fit well too.  Cavil as Superman is good.  He does remind me of Keuchly in the face with the glasses on... but who he really looks like to me is boos bf.

I thought the beginning was really boring, like I almost nodded off type boring. It got better towards the end when I was able to laugh at all the people hiding behind cars while the city was being torn apart and how Louise Lane was able to show up where ever Superman was, particularly at Grand Central Station.

 

Pretty terrible movie imo and that was with me going into it with low expectations because I don't care for Superman.

While watching the beginning, I thought it was boring. But as soon as the movie was on earth, I realized that I would pay good money to go see a prequel about Krypton.

Its obvious with the pacing that much was cut from Krypton - I would love to see what didn't make the final film.

I thought it was a good film but Batman was so much better. I went into it thinking this would basically be Batman Superman since Nolan did it.

You can't go into a comic book movie expecting Dark Knight trilogy, since I don't even think of those movies as that, they are in a world of their own.  Plus, superman has always been a really campy character and comes off as cheesy, there's only so much you can do.

 

I also LOL'd at Louis finding Clark that quick as if Metropolis (NY in our time) is that small lol.

Well you've gotta suspend disbelief, it's a movie about a superhero wtf. You have no problem buying into the idea of Superman, Krypton, etc. Yet Louis casually finding him in Metropolis is just outside your comprehension lol?

 

This is why I don't even bother to read critic reviews anymore.

All the comparisons to the Dark Knight... have you guys ever really LISTENED to the dialog? What makes TDK so good is the pacing and the build-up. Without those elements, the plots are pretty bad. In the end, its about a guy richer than God who says corny things like "SWEAR TO ME!!!"

Besides, Batman Begins was easily the weakest movie of the trilogy. Who's to say the first MOS won't be the weakest? As far as logic, heck a man as paranoid as Bruce Wayne didn't do background checks on Selina Kyle or Miranda Tate before they were hired?

I don't get the point of comparing it to other movies.

Expecting superman to be as entertaining as the avengers is setting yourself up for disappointment.

Even expecting it to be like a dark vigilante movie....seriously?

Well, I wouldn't say Begins is weak, it's much better than MOS though.  But I'm in the group that liked Begins and Rises better than Dark Knight, not saying Dark Knight is weak either.  All three of those movies are awesome but I understand your point.  MOS is a GOOD movie, we can't always except GREAT when it comes to Superhero movies, I think he's a hard character to capture without being campy.  

 

It's like some people are talking about this movie like it's the Fantastic Four movies or Green Lantern lol.
