What is Adams portrayal of Lois,like? Im fond of the determined sometimes brash and thickheaded Lois, but the trailer makes her look kinda soft.

 

 

I felt that she was nice mix of Kidder's Lois with a bit of O'Toole's Lana. Smart, sassy, with a heart, and let's them show. Far better than Bosworth's Lois. Chemistry between Cavill and Adams was also far better than Routh and Bosworth, but I blame it on Bosworth because I felt she was a little miscast.

 

I want to know how cavill is as our Clark and supes. Saw him on a chat show last night and he the personality of a wooden plank, which made me a little worried about his performance as the protagonist. Not seen him anything either.

 

Cavill plays his Superman a lot more like a more realistic Clark, not court jester Clark, which I thought was a good thing. I never liked the whole Clark/Superman is the mask/true face argument. I've seen him on The Tudors and that mythology movie he was in and he was decent in those.
 

So I liked the characterization of the main characters, but felt that the movie felt a little too summer movie cotton candy action blockbuster-ish. Like Iron Man 3, the action kinda overshadows the themes a bit. If you(royal you) were waiting for a BIG ACTION Superman movie, this MoS will have you creaming your pants; if you liked Superman Returns, you'll be a little disappointed.

 

For movie music fans, I also felt that the score was a little lacking. I don't thin kit really captured or helped to enhance the mood of the film.

 

 

Thank you, it was very informative. I am looking forward to this, I did like Returns for what it was but I hated Lex in that and the religious undertones were a little too in-your-face my tastes. I'm welcoming the heavy action since it's always been lacking in all but animated versions of history.

 

Any references to Lex or Lexcorp? I've hated the movie versions with a passion so far, it's funny that 2 very versatile actors ended up as crappy Luthors whereas the teen angst filled Smallville had the best version of Lex imo.

You know, it just occurred to me that MoS feels like an extension of the Smallville series in terms of the Clark/Superman characterization...without the teenage emo angst of course.

Haha...I agree about Smallville's Lex.

Sequel has been confirmed quite a while back, it did pretty well here in England if I recall.

 

Also good to see This Is The End getting positive response, that's on watch list the week after MOS.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is fucking atrocious! Ignore at all costs! Jim Carrey and the rest of the crew is decent but the Steve Carell is really miscast and ruins the movie.

Finally saw Amazing Spiderman. Didn't think I would like it since Spiderman is probably my least favorite superhero, but it was better than I expected. Definitely better than the Toby Maguire movies. The one thing that bothered me was the face on the villain. It kept reminding me of the Super Mario Bros. live action movie and I couldn't help but laugh.

This Is The End was a lot funnier than I was expecting.  Nice surprise.

 

I guess when you try to do a movie about the Rapture via the perspective of stoners, it can indeed work.

World War Z - It was good, not great.  I still think the zombie tidal waves were extremely stupid and the effects for that looked like shit, but when that wasn't going on the movie was solid.  The story was good as well, pretty refreshing for a zombie where you think everything has already been done.

Man Of Steel - I Liked the first 2 Donner films and thought Returns was pretty good, if a little trite. To me Man of Steel is my favourite Superman film imo, just loved it. I didn't understand the criticisms it got with lack of humour and romance element,granted the destruction got a little too much but thats no biggie. 

 

Compared to the other superhero film released this year, which I enjoyed too, I think Man of Steel blew Iron Man 3 out of the water. 

 

9.5/10

Count me in on that, too.  I actually went to a drive-in to see it and ended up leaving about halfway through.  I thought the pacing was terrible and they were jumping all over the place at the start and it really wasn't winning me back.  Quite disappointed.

Yup, characters were one dimensional, pacing was awful, sloppy sound editing in quiet scenes, poorly construed drama, etc.

Just saw the original Cannes cut of Kill Bill in all its close to 4-hour glory. This version needs to see proper release on blu-ray. It's just that simple.

Do you remember the name of the Asylum version of this because I swore I saw that a few months ago.

 

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is fucking atrocious! Ignore at all costs! Jim Carrey and the rest of the crew is decent but the Steve Carell is really miscast and ruins the movie.

I didn't think it was that bad. If you're gonna see it in theaters yeah you probably better have a girl with you to make out with but it was never intended to be anything like Now You See Me. I think for what it was it was ok. Perfectly middling imo.

Fast & Furious 6 for the 2nd time. Awesome movie. There was nothing out that I was really interested in and I really enjoyed it the first time so why not? It's definitely my favorite movie of the series.
