Mania Review: Man of Steel (Article) - 6/18/2013 8:37:34 PM

Yeah, he's mostly done stunt work in Hollywood and he played Jason in the new Friday the 13th and played one of the predators in...well...Predators, haha.  But he got his start doing theater/comedy/improv.  He's done some small parts in other movies and TV shows here and there.  I've never actually seen him "act" either, but looking at his background and how he got his start and also his look...I think he could pull it off.  Especially judging by the direction they're taking this new Superman, being darker and more serious and less campy.  I'd say at least let him audition.

And I really couldn't care less about Lois knowing his identity already.  I just like the direction they're going with this new franchise in general.  It's different.  So what?  If it doesn't follow the comics to a T then why is that such a bad thing?  I thought a little originality in a movie was a good thing.  I realize that I'm not comics guy and maybe I miss some things, but Jesus.  If you want it to be just like the comics then read the comics and forget watching the movies.  And I liked how he explained why he chose being a reporter as his job.  But again, I'm a movie guy, not a comics guy.  I thought it was a fun movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Damnit, Mania!  I just spent like eight minutes typing out my thoughts after just getting back from seeing it with my pops.

FRIGGIN' AWESOME!

All I'm really gonna take the time to say right now.  But I did notice maybe an Easter egg that no one else has mentioned.  Maybe it wasn't actually an Easter egg and it was inadvertant.  The scene after he saved the guys on the oil rig and was walking up to the house wearing his ripped pants and was checking the clothes line for some new duds.  Now, I know Hulk/Banner are part of Marvel and Superman is DC, but it really jumped out at me as a possible nod to Hulk/Banner.  And maybe the fact that he didn't grab clothes from the line (I realize he didn't because they were wet) was just Snyder's way of paying his respects but not actually ripping off the idea.  Just my thoughts.

Oh, and I still say Derek Mears would make an excellent Lex Luthor.

So as I said, I'm taking my dad to see it Tuesday night (tomorrow as I type this).  I can go downtown to Movieland and get us $6 tickets with my club card, but it doesn't work for 3D movies.  Is it worth spending basically twice as much to go to the theater here in the 'burbs to see it in 3D?

The Summer of '83: Superman III (Article) - 6/17/2013 10:16:59 AM

I understand the hate and disappointment that surrounds this one, but for some reason it still holds a special place in my cynical heart.  I have the big five movie box set and pulled this one out a couple months ago.

I get what you're saying, lazarus.  Wouldn't be the first movie I've seen where I've wondered about the civilian death toll brought on by the "hero."

I'll be taking my pops to see it Tuesday night for a belated Father/Son outing for Father's Day.  Wanted to do it this weekend, but as a drink-slinger I make my biggest money Thursday-Sunday.

Arnold Back for Terminator 5 (Article) - 6/16/2013 7:19:52 PM

blankczech, you and I are on the same page.

Though I will say that Stallone is still doing it pretty well and JCVD was great in Expendables 2.

MLEdelen, it's already been established that Superman has killed before.  This isn't the first time, so to say that he would never kill anyone is incorrect.  There's at least one story arc that I've heard of (I don't read comics) where he killed once and then after that he vowed never to kill again.  I've already said earlier that I understand people not liking it and being upset over it, but it's happened before.  It's happened in the comics and, arguably, at the end of Superman II.

Again, my point is that it's ok if people don't like it and disagree with it.  But it can't be said that it's never happened or that he would never do it.  It all really depends on which incarnation of the character you're talking about really.  There have been many over the decades.

To go along with what lazarus said as far as Lex's genius, they should have him team up with Brainiac, a la Superman Lives.
