Mania Review: Man of Steel (Article) - 6/15/2013 2:34:42 PM

Went back and saw it the 2nd time yesterday.  I was there at midnight Thursday, took my teenage boys after working all day, dropped them off, went BACK into work at 3 a.m., left work at 1 p.m., picked the wife up and went and saw it again at 2:15 p.m..  Then came home and went to bed. 

I enjoyed it the 2nd time, which was nice.  I still haven't went back to see IM3 for a 2nd viewing.  Going back next weekend with a buddy of mine when he gets back from a trip and I look forward to watching it again.

As I posted back on page 1, the editing remains the real nit pick for me.  It is a good movie.  I dare say next to Cavill, the Mr. Crowe almost steals the show.  His stuff was awesome and seeing him save Lois during her escape was funny stuff.  And I loved this boxing moves on Zod.  Great stuff.

As for Supes breaking Zods neck- after the epic throw down that he and Zod just had, where there was really no time for a break or breath or a moment to analyze the damage and what he has in front of him that very moment - a real opportunity to SAVE someone from death, he did what he had to; but definately what he DIDN'T want to do.  I didn't leave thinking negative of him.  My wife and I were like, well that is different, but we both felt it was necessary.

The big question we had (and my boys), is can they have a human bad guy?  One punch and any human is toast and the big guy has just shown he will kill if the moment requires it.  It will be very interesting to see what they choose as his next adversary.

And let me echo the boos on no DCU!!!  My first show, the whole place stuck around to see something.. and when it went black, the boos came out.  Along with some other choice words.  While my oldest was saying as the credits rolled, that what we just saw wouldn't jive with Batman and his universe, I was holding out hope for SOMETHING!!  Or something more, like mentioned before about the sateliite feed going to the batcave.  This was the real let down for me.

It could have been better, but it was a good movie.  And a good start for whatever is coming next. 

GO SEE IT if you haven't, it is worth the ticket price!

Saw it at midnight and I liked and enjoyed it.  I do agree with the review on how it could have been so much more.  And the editing, there are a few transitions that could have been handled better.  Cavill does a fine job, imo.  I will post more later, like late Sat or Sun.  I will end with - GO see it.  It is worth a viewing in the theaters.  I am going back this afternoon with the wife.

Man of Steel Nokia TRAILER (Article) - 6/10/2013 5:35:47 AM

Now, that would be a nice twist to the story Wise.  Cool idea.

Man of Steel Nokia TRAILER (Article) - 6/8/2013 6:29:42 PM

Silly question, but have they showed ANY clips with him as Clark Kent, the reporter?  Is Clark Kent, the reporter in this one?  Hmmm.

Man of Steel Nokia TRAILER (Article) - 6/7/2013 5:36:45 AM

I am with Wise on the $400 million.  This looks to have the emotion and action of a great flix, let alone an iconic superhero movie.  The fans want a Superman movie to LOVE.  I know I do and I plan on going multiple times, so it better be good.  lol

The Summer of '83: WarGames (Article) - 6/3/2013 9:07:15 AM

Ditto that.  Knowing how to use the command line made you special back in the day.  lol  Good times and and fun movie.  My teenagers didn't give it a chance, I just wanted them to laugh at it.

Mania Review: After Earth (Article) - 5/31/2013 4:03:25 AM

Wow.  And bummer.  Was hoping for some type of positive notes.

Cavill up for Worlds Finest (Article) - 5/23/2013 12:47:33 PM

I agree that Mr. Bale is not needed for this to happen.  He is worn down (his character), so it wouldn't make any sense to bring in an older / battle worn hero.  I feel it would need a Batman in his prime, not starting out.

I cannot wait for Man of Steel.  The last trailer was AWESOME.

Mania Review: Star Trek: Into Darkness (Article) - 5/19/2013 7:59:56 PM

Checked it out with the wife today.  We both enjoyed it.  Great action.  Good villian.  Didn't notice the flares.  Wife appreciated the twist.
