I only saw the first $200,000,000 worth of Man of Steel, as I walked out at the two hour mark.
Despite his iconic status Superman has often struggled to adapt to life on the silver screen. Ignoring the comic book delights of the first two films, DC’s most enduring creation has failed to soar at the box office and even the Midas touch of Christopher Nolan’s guiding hand seems incapable of stopping the character’s turbulent cinematic journey. Following Bryan Singer’s lifeless and dull love letter to Donner’s original film, Warner Bros. have attempted to bring the Godly spectacle back to the franchise, and they have, at the expense of practically everything else.
Although this is very much an origin story it foregoes many of the elements people have come to associate with the character. Sure, it features the familiar moral…
There is a scene in Man of Steel that says it all.
In the middle of a showdown with the bad guys in downtown Metropolis with people everywhere, a flaming truck or some other huge thing is thrown towards Superman who is standing in front of a building. A building presumably filled with people.
Superman jumps out of the way.
He jumps out of the way.
The truck goes into the building destroying I don't how many floors killing I don't know how many people. I have to ask: why didn't Superman catch the truck and throw it over the buildings out of the city to land on some out of the way field to save some lives?
Are you effing stupid?
UGHHHHHHHH. Such an overbearing, dreary piece of overwritten shit. I can maybe count on one hand the number of films that frustrate me as much as this one. So much potential crushed into thousands upon thousands of "heroic" musings and oblivious, robotic filmmaking. Even the greatest aspects - opening images of Krypton, superman vs. Zod - feel lifeless, torn away from their inherent majesty and switched with dour compositions and a fucking horrible soundtrack that makes me want to shove leaf blowers into my ear canals.
"Oh, you like this wonderful wide shot of Krypton? Guess what's even better? SMASH ZOOMS!"
- I will bet most of my arteries that that exact sentence was said…
There really isn't any reason to be excited for BATMAN v SUPERMAN, is there?
An explosion of imagination and visual ingenuity, Man of Steel manages to feel like the future of cinema and an instant classic all at once. It follows the bare bones of the source material, then injects a strong dose of modernity and eliminates the duality between Clark Kent the journalist and Superman. The early reviews for this film are polarized for all the wrong reasons. Something that's been slowly building over the last few years has finally come to a head with reviews of this film. When it comes to big, flashy summer blockbusters, critics have taken extremely negative stances on popular films for the sake of being "above" all the noise. This isn't a film that needs to be…
Immerhin gab es wirklich eine gute Textzeile aus dem Mund der Journalistin Lois Lane: "Wenn ich keine schußsichere Weste trage, kriege ich eine Schreibblockade." Hat sich am nächsten Tag der Staub der unglaublichen Zerstörung gelegt, hält der Film keinem genaueren Nachdenken stand. Der Film hat vor allem ein konzeptionelles Problem – in dem Sinne, dass das „Konzept Superman“, nämlich Menschen zu retten, nicht im Mittelpunkt steht, fast gar nicht auftaucht. schoener-denken.de/blog/man-of-steel-filmkritik/
Esta es, si no recuerdo mal, la tercera vez que veo El hombre de acero.
La primera fue en el cine y casi me salí de la sala y la segunda fue comentándola por Twitter entre chistes y chanzas. Esta vez, ha sido en el sofá, con tranquilidad y teniendo ya asumidos todos sus defectos.
Porque, para mí, el principal defecto es que apenas llegué a vislumbrar a Superman en las dos horas y media que dura la película. Aquel señor que salía en la pantalla no era "mi" Superman (ni siquiera "mi" Clark Kent) y fue ahí donde me perdieron, donde mi interés y mis ganas de tomarme en serio lo que estaba viendo. La terrible ejecución de algunas…
Rewatched the DCEU debutant Man of Steel - my adoration for the original Reeves/Donner films notwithstanding, this stands as my favorite Superman movie! While featuring quality performances headlined by Cavill and Shannon, the highest of props are greatly deserved by director Snyder , ace d.o.p. Mokri , and of course master composer Zimmer ! With vivid admiration, Snyder crafts a new beginning for the Superman mythos, doing for this generation of fans, what Donner did back in '78. Yes I've heard all the complaints and while it's true that MoS is by no means perfect, I find it unfair that comic buffs have taken issue with the film so drastically - particularly since many lifelong fans of #thelastsonofkrypton were able…
"Man of Steel" wastes an iconic and colorful character by portraying it in a bleak, emotionless way, and with a story that's so forgettable that it can't be saved even by the dynamic and jaw-dropping fight scenes.
Hate this film so much, can not stand it at all. The action is the only good thing in it.
I rarely rewatch films and after watching this the first time I never would have guessed that this is one I'd rewatch multiple times. I most enjoy the beginning when Clark Kent is finding his place in the world. Perhaps if the DC Universe bombs hard enough we'll eventually get Snyder doing Terrence Malick style films and the world will be a better place. The rest of the movie has too much action, probably the Smallville fight should have been cut, but Snyder makes it look too pretty to ignore.
Zack Snyder muérete ya.
the poor use of flashbacks made this film feel like an hours-long trailer for the DCEU
Superman has been rebooted once again, and I like this incarnation of the classic character, but unfortunately the story is very bland and I didn't feel like we got enough fun and games. I wanted at least a little bit of pure Superman fun like we got in 1978, but Man of Steel tries to be too different and it doesn't quite work.
there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
