I would like this post if I wasn't using the damn app on my phone. Amazing how an action sequence from over 30 years ago can be more exciting and emotional than the same one made today. Remember when Supes cared for the safety of others?

Wow...I don't even remotely agree with this. I think the recent Batman movies are the greatest of the genre...at least 1 and 2 were (I didn't see 3). Hell, I don't even think it's even a close race.

I am disappointed in the lot of you. I am going to save any pointed arguments(unlike some) until next Saturday so as not to spoil...
Maybe Snyder WAS the wrong director for this. Simply because it's too easy to let feelings towards him color your opinions(and yes Nasti...I honestly think you are incapable of enjoying anything with his name attached). The complaints of boring and how the fight sequences had little merit confound me. First, if this movie had one major flaw it is that they tried to do TOO much as far as story instead of concentrating on a few storylines. Well, ambition doesn't take points off as far as I am concerned. And, as I have said earlier I LOVE that Superman is in the whole movie. They manage to do some clever things with preconceived aspects of Supes story that I will not discuss till next weekend. The thing that bristles the most...the action sequences were among some of the most impressive I have ever seen. The physics of how Superman fights were established here and simply were stunning. There are 3 seperate action setpieces that come in a row. Maybe they needed to break them up a bit more but I think each one was distinct and had valid reasons to be in the movie. And joyless????? Why because Clark Kent didn't go all Jimmy Stewart chasing after 'miss Lane'? Bah. You guys really WANT the cheesy bright blue schoolboy instead of a smart and RELEVANT Superman movie. I almost don't even feel like arguing about it simply because I don't understand your viewpoints. I find it difficult and pointless to argue when I am essentially closed to accepting your complaints. So yeah, this may be it for me. Discuss it amongst yourselves if you want.

Completely agree with JD that maybe they tried to do too much. Loved Cavill. Love that they tried to take the Superman saga seriously with the obvious issues that come with a space alien and superpowers in present day. I will lay low until next weekend but I need to see again to fully take it all in again.
Say what you want about Snyder but he had Costner acting like he hasn't in years - Kevin Costner was one of the best parts of this movie and one of my only complaints about the movie is that I could've used more Jonathon Kent.

Saw it yesterday and loved MoS. Loved the sci-fi/Kypton stuff, which we'd only seen in the comics. When's the spoilery embargo over? This upcoming Friday?

Saturday officially we can start discussing specifics.
