|Man of Steel
| I put this on to fall asleep to and finished it up today. I am not a Superman fan. I'm getting really tired of seeing the same origin stories told again and again. It's really boring and I was bored whenever it wasn't an action film. However, a solid cast pads everything out and I feel like the action was constructed better than average (i.e. I could tell what was going on... most of the time). it's weird, I doubt these big action scenes are even shot anymore. Maybe it's just weeks and weeks of close-ups of guys gritting and yelling but for the most part it's an animated film at that point.
I will say poor Metropolis. It's pretty funny when some random humans, standing in the middle of an impact crater the size of half of Manhattan, looks at Supes and says "he saved us!" But on the other hand, it's cool to see shit explode so... better that than a bunch of space fighting or whatever.
I still question this movie's existence though... but what's funny is I hope they make a sequel because we might actually get a new story out of it.
