Superman Deadliest Catch Lyrics....

 

Because He's a super!

On a rocket he came!

He's Wanted!

(Wanted!)

Dead or alive!

He's a super!

He's got the sun on his side!

And he's Wanted!

(Wanted!)

Dead or alive!

Easily the best Superman film ever made. Superman Returns was very mediocre, and Reeves films suffered from special effects of the time, and they're just plain cheesy.

 

Man of Steel lacks cheese, doesn't waste time with "rebooting" origins, and the fight sequences are in another league from any of the Marvel movies... Nolan should be in charge of all Superhero films XD

 

The movie is around 2 hours in 30 minutes... but it seemed more like 90 minutes... This movie is fun and is the only movie to put Superman's strength on full display... Let us hope that Lex Luthor is never the main antagonist ever again....

Nolan's involvement in the next one is going to be significantly less, though he's confirmed to be on board. The big difference he's made to a Snyder movie is make sure it isn't marred with ANY slow motion sequences. I'll post my full review from home after work. The movie has a lot of flaws and is enjoyable as well. 


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

The bad - 

 

Zod being beaten by

Jor-El, wasn't he supposed to be a badass ... funny how he later tells Superman how he's a military guy with immense training, etc. but he can't beat a meager scientist.


 

Tacky CG during that

oil-rig rescue and Sups is OK with stealing from people huh

... after all that moral talk from his Dad. 

 

Superman and Lois

kiss scene kinda felt flat ... their 5 min encounter sorta didn't warrant it, or how close they stood when Superman was surrendering to Zod.


 

The way Jonathan

dies, although there's little merit to why he did it, it was still dumb

. Part of me argues he's trying to protect Clark from being discovered (because the world isn't ready for it) and it's a big moment when

he sacrifices himself. I think that scene was weird ... why allow an old 55/60 year old guy run towards a tornado when a healthier young Clark could do it better/ quicker. He isn't a kid at that point of the story. Maybe the scene's written badly, I dunno ... did he die this way in the comic?


 

One of the better moments of Superman Returns was Superman's vulnerability when he throws that island in space and falls to Earth after using up all his energy. It sort of felt natural. I didn't see that sort of vulnerability or threat against Superman in MOS, the closest was when he

was on Zod's ship or battling the World Engine

... he did yell though? :schierke:

 

Morpheus is Perry White. 

 

The good - 

 

Faora vs Col Hardy ... and Faora in general, what a bloody badass she was, she deserves a movie of her own like a spin-off series :farnese:. Her fight sequence on the ground against those troops was a lotta fun to watch. 

 

All fight sequences were awesome, pretty much top 5 among superhero movies. Didn't look over-the-top or unbelievable and wasn't laced with dumb slo-mo sequences (Thanks Johnstantine, phew). Even the Superman-Zod fight was just fantastic to watch. 

 

Krypton's destruction

looked cool.

One of the better moments of Superman Returns was Superman's vulnerability when he throws that island in space and falls to Earth after using up all his energy. It sort of felt natural.

I didn't like this scene because he basically lifted an island size chunk of kryptonite with no sign of weakness until after he got rid of it... historically, kryptnoite almost always immediately sapped Superman's powers and made him really weak.

 

Of course I always thought that was stupid to... I felt that Kryptonite should have just reduced him to no different than an earthling as he would have been on Krypton, instead of someone that could barely move... but I guess that wouldn't be dramatic enough.

Not to forget, he just got stabbed by Kryptonite right before that scene. Before he lifts the island, he goes into space to get some Sun in him and dives deep under the island. One can argue there was enough rock or soil or whatever it was between him and Kryptonite but I think there were chunks bloody near him too. So it's an iffy. What I meant by that remark was how you see his character broken down by a true threat and a threat that didn't last 15 seconds. It was elaborate. With Man Of Steel, there was very very little threat to him. In a way, you don't get a feeling of Superman being over-powered.

In a way, I think Superman fans were tired of him not being overpowered, because as a superhero, he is overpowered... And you have those people that hate Superman because they feel he is too powerful. Zod was a brute, If we can finally have Brainiac in a film, I think he will definitely bring Superman to his knees. Perhaps this is why Batman is in the next film? Superman will need Bruce Wayne's ingenuity to overcome such a villain.

Faora was super hot, I do agree. :P

      I wasn't that interested in this movie because its based in the past, but now that I've been sucked into Battlefield 1, this movie looks amazing. I know DICE likes to put easter eggs in their games so I wonder if we'll see an amazon warrior reference somewhere in a future dlc. On a side note, I thought we had a Wonder Woman topic already for the teaser trailer, but I didn't see one.

      This is without a doubt the best thing I have seen on tv this entire year. 4 series in a massive justice league / captain America civil war style plot spanning 4 episodes and it was amazing. I really hope they make another crossover special next year. Superheroes versus the ultimate Nazis. The episodes are online if anyone wants to watch:

      I've gotten annoyed with managing my digital movie and tv series collection. It didn't bother me before because Netflix had pretty much everything. I'd never have to search for stuff on my hard drives or old dvd-rs because it would all be on Netflix. Now that Netflix has dropped about 50% of their content over the last couple years and will lose significantly more once all of Disney's properties are removed next year I've realized all my old dvds, blu rays and digital movies are all getting more use again. This is were plex comes in.
      I setup plex on my main pc, moved a bunch of movies and tv series into some folders and set plex to use those folders. This program auto grabbed all meta data for the content, images, etc and is basically a Netflix clone. I was shocked by how efficient this is. I installed the plex client app on my ps3, ps4 and roku stick and as long as my pc with the plex server is running I can now stream all my content to every tv in the house. It even keeps track of where i left off in a movie and i can resume it on a different device if I want.
      So I bought a 4tb hard drive yesterday and I'm going all in on this. I'm going to rip a bunch of my dvds and blu rays (the ones that don't have a digital copy) into mkv files and throw them on that hard drive for my plex. I'll try putting my old anime avi files (with hard coded subs from back in the old download days) in there to to see if plex can play those too.  Plex will even organise by genre to so it all works good. And plex is free.
      I was thinking about buying a nvidia shield because it can be used as a plex media server instead of just a client like the PlayStation/roku apps but it looks like it has some limitations with file types and my old anime files would definitely not play on it unless i converted every file thru some program called handbrake. I'll look into that some more.
      I figured I'd share this in case anyone else was getting annoyed with Netflix and every company making their own Netflix clones. Instead of paying every company a piece of the pie it'll be cheaper in the long run to just make my own Netflix with the content i already own that is already tailored to my preferances. And plex can stream outside of your home in 720p if you go on a road trip. I doubt I'll ever use that feature tho, especially with upload rates being shit with spectrum.
      Go to https://www.plex.tv to get the media server and the PlayStation/xbox store/roku/android to download the plex app. I know this topic seems like am advertisement but they're paying me nothing and it's all free downloads anyway. it just works and works great.

      I have noticed the selection isn't nearly what it used to be. Back in the day I'd search for a movie and 80% of the time it was on netflix. Now I don't even use the search feature because the last 20 movies I've searched for are never on there. Netflix used to be this great replacement to blockbuster with every movie made available, but now it looks like all the content rights holders and networks are pulling their properties off and either selling the rights to other streaming services like Amazon Prime or Hulu or they're making their own streaming service like CBS all access. I'm tempted to cut my cable and switch to streaming only services but I still haven't found a combo of apps or services that will give me the channel selection or content I fully want. I already have amazon prime and netflix. But to replace cable I figure if I go with Sling blue with HBO and starz, hulu, hbo go (part of my cable package now), and over the air HD antenna I'd have the majority of the channels I watch with cable except for science channel. I'd probably save about $30 a month over my current cable plan. Anyone use Sling?
      Also, with the companies pulling their content from netflix and making their own streaming services, maybe in the near future cable will actually be a good deal again compared to being nickel and dimed by all the different apps? I do like seeing different streaming services offering competition like Sling and PlayStation VUE, but I still feel on the fence about actually cutting off my cable for streaming only.

      If Nintendo had Pixar make their movies while maintaining control of the property so another "Super Mario Bros." live action fiasco never happens again, they could make some really awesome movies. But if Nintendo teams up with some companies in Japan that did the live action death note or attack on titan movies, this could lead to some huge flops.
