p the boiler: who would you rather have - Bankers and Lawyers? Salespeople? Telemarketers? Politicians? On the scale of bad people we are nowhere near the top.
Pilikia: Mark Waid does not know a lot about Superman. Mark Waid knows a lot about what he thinks Superman should be (insert stop liking things I don't like image here). And his navel-gazing opinioneering aside, the man doesn't know the first thing about writing a coherent movie review.
Alphax: A lot of this thread sounds like 'they changed something, and I don't like it, so this is the worst move EVAR!!'. And I'm thinking, 'isn't this just like the Star Trek Into Darkness threads a few weeks back?'
REO-Weedwagon: I see Warner Brothers is launching a new marketing campaign today saying the new Superman movie is really about Christianity, and pretty much if you love Jesus, then you should definitely bring out the whole family to see the movie. Actually, organize the church youth group to come see it as well, you know, for Jesus. They currently have the "story" plastered all over Fox News and other various media outlets that attract and instruct the rubes."By the way, if anyone here is in marketing or advertising...kill yourself. Thank you. Just planting seeds, planting seeds is all I'm doing. No joke here, really. Seriously, kill yourself, you have no rationalisation for what you do, you are Satan's little helpers. Kill yourself, kill yourself, kill yourself now. Now, back to the show. Seriously, I know the marketing people: 'There's gonna be a joke comin' up.' There's no farkin' joke. Suck a tail pipe, hang yourself...borrow a pistol from an NRA buddy, do something...rid the world of your evil f*ckin' presence."[img397.imageshack.us image 230x229]
secularsage: ****SPOILERS FROM REVIEW*****
mitEj: I like Mark Waid but he is wrong. Superman has killed before and i am sure he will again but he does not take it lightly.The movie was damn good. Go see it
Nana's Vibrator: Alphax: Granted, Amy Adams doesn't look much like Margo Kidder, so I had some trouble buying her as Lois. On the other hand, she was a better reporter and detective, tracking down Clark at the Kent farm early in the movie.When I see it, I think I'll be more distracted that Zod isn't played by Terance Stamp than with a non Margo Kidder looking Amy Adams.
RexTalionis: Dimensio: imashark: IdBeCrazyIf: Hebalo: Yes, yes it does. There's also a Lexcorp truck visible.God you guys got better eyes than I doIs Lex in this movie? I need to know. Because someone needs to do Lex Luthor some freaking justice.One of the greatest villains of all time (even more malevolent, I'd argue, than the Joker) who's best portrayal on film has been a used car salesman who is trying to get into real estate.Lex Luthor is not in Man of Steel.Kevin Spacey could potentially serve as a good Lex Luthor. Unfortunately, his casting in Superman Returns will likely eliminate him as an option in any Man of Steel sequel, even though he did not play Lex Luthor in Superman Returns.[images2.wikia.nocookie.net image 299x400]Take Clancy Brown, shave his head and beard. Voila.
un4gvn666: I was going to post something similar. Also, despite the criticisms of the ending "not being in line with his character", which I strongly disagree with based on watching the damn scene itself, no one has been able to suggest an ending to that fight that wouldn't be akin to wiping your ass with a film strip.
give me doughnuts: In "Man of Steel", what other recourse does Superman have? Given only the elements presented in the movie, how is he to contain Zod & Company?
burndtdan: If Superman can save the day and still have time to make sure no one is hurt in the process, the threat wasn't that grave. We've had enough films about him foiling real estate schemes or overcoming his inner-struggle. This is Superman in a real outer-struggle, which if I"m not mistaken is something a lot of people have been asking to see in the movies.
QT_3.14159: I really liked it. But that review did voice what was bothering me about it. Superman wasn't going out of his way to protect anyone or move fights out of populated areas. While it was mostly just an excuse for destroying more skyscrapers, it did seem wrong.Overall, though I did really love it. It really honed in on the alien/sci-go aspect of it. And it was really entertaining.
Rwa2play: From Waid's review, I'm more annoyed with him trying to destroy a giant machine in the middle of nowhere instead of trying to destroy same giant machine wrecking Metropolis.
IdBeCrazyIf: There is a reason behind it, Waid missed itSeen it twice now and even I missed it the first time
RexTalionis: Remember when Superman literally executed Zod and his lieutenants in the comics?
thecpt: PsyLord: 58%? Wow, that's not good.Could be. Rt is far from perfect
un4gvn666: Exactly. That's why I went to the theaters for the first time in about 6 months to watch it at midnight yesterday. And I would have done that regardless of whatever silly bullshiat was posted by the snobs over at RT. Thankfully, the movie was incredible. Easily one of the top 5 superhero movies ever made.
rocky_howard: And while I respect Waid, I agree with another FARKer that he's too navelgazing about what Superman is. Plus it's not as if Superman hadn't done in the Donner movies what he did here. Except he did it in a more sadistic way and with ZERO emotional development and feeback:
Dimensio: Which actually makes the comic incarnation's killing worse, now that I consider the matter.
Electric_Banana: The tone reminds me of Batman Begins and the action reminds me of Transformers. The parts with Ma and Pa Kent actually looked pretty good.
Electric_Banana: But I thought the whole Deadliest Catch: Superman bit looked pretty silly.
Hebalo: It was great. I'm confused by the negative reactions. It's everything you want out of a Superman film.
