IT WAS A SUMMER POPCORN flick. And it succeeded. I think it made Superman relevant, and as 'big ticket item' as BATMAN is...if you do not find a way to make Superman human as well as alien, well there just isn't going to be enough common ground to establish a base measurement for a common world. And DC wants that MARVEL money. It was as good as it could have been. they tried to shoot for the moon. No shame in that. They came up short...but still succeeded. I had a smile on my face the whole time and marveled at just how...I dunno...COOL the movie was. For the first time...I gave a rats ass about Superman. Music was great...really solid acting across the board...and really...go **** in your hat...I have NEVER seen action sequences that had so much serious physics in action. It wasn't careless...it was extremely well thought out.

    Whatever. so tear in boys. Me...I was wowed. I actually believed a man could fly...and KICK SEVEN SHADES OF **** out of everything.
    Actually, we got several moments of Christ Supes. But I didn't include that in part 1 of my review because I can deal with that if the other things work.

    See...I need to digest what you wrote. I see some valid gripes. But Snyder was working from Goyer's script. And Nolan/Goyer's outline. You want to lay all the blame at his feet. That is what I take umbrage with. You assess all this blame and fail to mention the positives(the action...the action). Would Aronofsky been a better choice? Yeah...if you think Black Swan was a good movie you can eat my kishkas. I dunno...said it before and will say it again, was it perfect? NO. Was it solid? Fun? a relevent take? YESYESYES.

    I already mentioned that I put some blame on those two as well but I also don't think it was Nolan's choice to have so little character development and story. That's just not his style. His big idea was to treat Supes as an alien which had never really been done before. Other than that I don't know how much input he had. Hey, I'd rather rewatch this over SR so there's that. I just thought this could have been so much better.

    Naysay's posts are getting tired like his podcast. Used to be fresh, fun to listen to. Now it just lame and puts me to sleep. Then again, I post the same Schtick that I have for 12 years now. Want to be bored, read what I type.
