    kkck: like I said, some of the explanations were half ass and poorly developed. That was a good example of one.

    I'm a biased spider man fan actually. Anyway what I'm trying to say is since Green Goblin to Spidey is like the Joker to Dark Knight, it would be great
    if one film is given to him. Uh no, it wouldn't really be copycats but GG's persona is kindda like Joker's. The original spider man didn't really
    adapted it the right way as in the comic books. I want him to be insane and have a huge presence.

    As for the new MJ, I am not fully convinced. She is very cute however at least in that picture she is not a perfect 10 so to speak. MJ is supposed to be on a bad day jaw dropping beautiful. Honestly, she is not even prettier than emma stone (which makes peter changing from gwen to MJ significantly more of a tradedown from what it would have been had MJ been as flabergastingly beautiful as she is supposed to be considering gwen herself is very beautiful AND has an IQ matching if not surpassing either set of boobs).

    That said, according to wikipedia her scenes were cut from the movie so it seems like she won't be the canonical MJ in this particular set of spidey movies. MJ should appear after gwen dies IMO.

    I guess.... but it still seems too lazy overall. how could they just overlook such details so far? You'd think 80% of the movie's plot holes could be easily fixed by merely adding a sentence or two. Seriously, what can this superman even do for humanity? Well, he can certainly fight but ultimately he is a morally uptight demigod with the same knowledge we all have. Superman is supposed to be an inspiration, he is supposed to guide humanity to a better future and being better. What can a dude who spent most of his adult years as a hobo looking for answers guide humans to? Is humanity such a joke in this nolan verse that a hobo can change things for the better? Superman traditionally has the knowledge of entire galaxies and civilizations which would actually be useful in guiding humanity anywhere. The most impressive skill superman has in this movie is to fake his identity considering he managed to infiltrate a military base under one. Perhaps the point the movie tried to make was that the US government is exceptionally and perhaps painfully inept considering louis tracked him down while the government did not. Or perhaps they wanted to make the point that the government left a missing employee to die in the snow?

    Pros
    Visual effects were pretty damn cool
    I liked the sort of spin they put on "Krytonite"
    That man is gorgeous
    The theme song is very pretty and moving

    Cons
    I literally rolled my eyes at the annoying amount of explosions and mass destruction going on...did Michael Bay direct this movie?
    Many of the explanations were half ass or poorly developed
    What spin are you talking about? and the action was done just right in my opinion I refuse to believe superman can fight other kryptonians without such destruction.

    Don't spoil people who haven't read it and MJ's scenes aren't gone entirely they're just gonna move them over to number 3 that's all.

    Is that spoiler? I mean, people know MJ is spiderman's girlfriend and whatnot overall. Most of the people I know hadn't even heard of gwen before this movie came out.... Its pretty obvious that the relationship between gwen and spiderman is doomed at best. I guess in the movie they might go without killing gwen though, its a bit dark for a kids spiderman movie.

    It is a spoiler. The same thing with Harvey dent in TDK , I did not know he was two face so the twist was excellent for me because
    I did not know nor was a batman fan.
    You should probably spoiler it up.

    Harley Quinn wasn't in TDK, only The Joker.

    edit: Ah, I guess you meant Harvey Dent, nvm

    I watched Man of Steel yesterday night.

    I was a bit disappointed, however it was not "bad" overall. This is indeed not the movie that a lot of people might expect based on the trailer, it is not as intimate as it seemed to be. The transformation from Clark Kent to Superman was rushed in my opinion, especially with Zod's arrival. There is a reccurent problem of pace. Some impactful scenes (in the sense that it was supposed to move you) failed to convey the right emotion, for example Kal-El's parents struggling to be separated from their son. The soundtracks were awesome in the trailers but seemed misplaced in a few scenes in the movie.

    FINALLY! Someone who shares my feelings on this movie! you got the word right- Intimate. That's what I was expecting from the trailers they released. Instead they bombarded me with a crapload of action scenes. >.<

    2 more avenger movies? I thought they were only doing one.... Well, I guess an avenger's trilogy makes the most sense considering everything.... Then again, how many story arcs could they do without bringing in the xmen? I guess they are already bringing in mutants without calling them mutants though...

    It's not anything new. From what I remember, Jackson was signed for something like 9 films...lol

    It seems like you can't do "hero" movies without a trilogy anymore. One to introduce the characters, one with a threat that wasn't the secret boss of the first one, the last one to do much wrong or good. :P

    I want to see MOS, but the mediocre reviews led to a "wait for the BD" decision. Hmpf, maybe I will go alone. :P

    To be fair, there are more symbolisms than you might think, with Kal-El as the Hope of his race with the codex of all its knowledge inside him, the Messiah relationship, the questioned religions with his appearance (what Jonathan Kent feared, and how some people reacted to the boy Clarck after he saved the bus), his choice as a representative etc Several themes has been touched in the movie. But yeah, only touched.
