Man of Steel!
Loved the film. a lot. felt like it was made for me  and I spent my childhood running around with a redish tea-towel tied around my neck, so you know I know what I'm talking about. Superman is my jam.

And I think that's what struck me most about the film: it didn't try to please everyone, it was a superhero movie, for people who like Superman. and Superman did amazing Superman things. God-awfully-amazing Superman things.

I think it felt more like a superhero movie than a lot of other recent flicks in the genre.

Great soundtrack too- get a hold of it if your a fan of filmscores
  • Listening to: Man of Steel soundtrack

It was a great movie, I don't understand why it recieved such horrible views.
I am not sure what surprised me more though, the fact that they cussed, or that Superman actually killed Zod. At least he was in emotional agony over it unlike when Batman let Ra's die in Batman Begins.

I thought it was really good. I didn't like it as much as Avengers or The Dark Knight Trilogy, but it's pretty close behind those (along with the Iron Man movies and some of the X-Men movies).

Guilty pleasure but I can't deny the hate it has gotten. If it just showed things in chronological order, gave more time for Clark's character to develop in different stages of his life, and decreased the amount of time the fight scenes took I think it would have done very well. The material and potential was there it just wasn't presented properly. As much as I would like to see a sequel from the team to correct their mistakes, I don't know what they could do.

I am so glad there is someone else out there who loves 'Man of Steel' as much as I do! So many people keep hating on it, but you're totally right: it was an excellent Superman movie for Superman fans. I thought it was amazing, and I particularly liked Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent.

I used to tie a pink (we didn't have red) towel around my neck and jump up and down on my trampoline.

I tried a flip once and the towel blinded me. I landed on my head :(.

I thought it kinda sucked... A lot.
I thought it did try to please everyone: there were generic Hollywoodblockbuster-superextended action sequences with no real drama or weight, there were zingy/cheesy dialogue exchanges, and there were brood-y, emotional self-conflict moments.
Too many different things.
And I thought it was some of Zimmer's most generic scoring as well.

Overall, the movie was mostly bland, with a few moments that hit some kind of mark.
