REO-Weedwagon: ...
"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."

Hey.... :-(

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.

I have returned from a 00:30 showing of the movie. I enjoyed it overall, though I did know most of what to expect. I find myself in agreement with most who viewed the movie positively but who also criticized the pacing.

I do have one comment, however.

Was not General Zod's plan ultimately a heavily scaled up "real estate" plot?

Truman Burbank: Some of you guys are working way too hard to earn those "paid shill posting positive word-of-mouth online" paychecks.


Your mom's prices went up.

Dimensio: mariner314: Lois tracking Clark down and no big "secret identity" crap. "Hi, I'm Lois, you're Clark. You're an alien and I'm cool with that."

The only drawback to such a portrayal is that it prevents a reprise of the best Superman villain speech ever.

RexTalionis: Dimensio: imashark: IdBeCrazyIf: Hebalo: Yes, yes it does. There's also a Lexcorp truck visible.

God you guys got better eyes than I do

Is 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.

Take Clancy Brown, shave his head and beard. Voila.


He definitely has the voice for it.

And, here's my biggest biatch about Superman:

The man always has to be careful, oh so careful as to not crush everything he freaking breathes on. If he is NEVER able to flex or stress test his muscles, where is he getting muscle tone? Shouldn't he be Kate Moss skinny or WoW player flabby? He can never truly exercise or workout, so why all the muscle tone?

KiltedBastich: It's again part of the canon that Superman's power levels grow slowly as he gets older and absorbs more solar energy.


Doesn't it depend on his midichlorian count?

Because he's the hero Metropolis deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll give him bad reviews. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark boy-scout.

Rhypskallion: I would love to see a movie where Superman is barely on Earth, and spends the film fighting space wars, mediating treaties, and doing cool spacey stuff. Maybe even boffing the inevitable hot alien chicks.


SO you want Superman to be James T. Kirk... Got it!

/I kid of course.

IdBeCrazyIf: 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.

I'd put it up there easily with Dark Knight

I really am flabergasted at the hate this movie is generating, it's like people who biatch about flying. You're just trying to find a reason to hate something.


I am still disappointed by the absence of a giant spider battle in the third act.

World War Z is rated at 80% and Superman: MOS at 58%.  Did I wake up in Bizarro Earth again?
