    is it bad when I connect more with the characters in Monsters U than I do with the characters in Man of Steel?

    Let me preface this by saying I loved his Batman movies.

    That said Nolan is an Englishman. By very nature he is a douche ... he can't help it ...

    Ok, so... I saw it this weekend.

    I'll avoid specifics because I feel like they've been covered fairly well, but I think this movie had about three things going for it. Special effects, the cast and the score (yeah, Zimmer fan boy here, **** you).

    Everything else was lacking for me.

    It felt a lot like the recent Tron movie to me. It looked ****ing amazing. The big fight sequences at the end of the film are among the best I've ever seen, as far as CGI goes. I was completely mouth-agape in awe of how cool all the explosions and falling buildings and fighter jets dodging **** looked.

    The cast was great. They could have been given more to work with, sure, but I think everyone nailed their parts fairly well for the most part, even with limited/no character development. Cavill himself was excellent, and I think he'll be a fine actor for the character going forward.

    But everything else... man. I'm sorry, I just could not get over Superman's clear disregard for everyone else while he's throwing Zod through buildings and ****. Amongst all the nit-pickings we could cover all week long, this is the one that gets me the most. Maybe that's because my preconceived notions of Superman are getting in the way. I can forgive a lot, but that is a hard pill to swallow.

    Yeah, fanboy or no...that music was pretty kickass. Gonna pick up the s/t, been listening to it on spotify. BTW, the WWZ music(Beltrami I think) was also particularly good. All in all this summer has started off strong in the theater at least as far as I am concerned. Whatever it's faults MOS was entertaining, This is the End...hilarious, WWZ...surprisingly tense. I have Lone Ranger marked as the FAIL of the summer. Something about it, whether it's western, yet another relaunch of a character nobody can connect to anymore, Johnny Depp's Red-face act, etc. We shall see.

    Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr are in the same category for me. Extremely talented and likable actors who have grown addicted to the paycheck.

    I dunno...thats a bit harsh. Actors have to strike while the iron is hot. I think both of them take some jobs to pay the bills for some of the movies that they WANT to do. Until their names alone aren't enough to get a movie greenlit, every director/producer is going to want to use them to get their movies made. I think Depp was part of the impetus for Lone Ranger...he wanted to play the part and is working with Verbinski who he clearly enjoys working with. RDJ...well, part of me still thinks that he works to keep himself out of trouble. It's hard to begrudge either of them. They have earned the right to make 'paycheck' movies if they want to.

    I really don't like Max Landis.

    EDIT : Having said that... He's not wrong.
