June 17, 2013 3:50 pm Putting Boomer in an Iron Fist movie is like cake and eating it too...How could they NOT get my money?
June 17, 2013 3:48 pm That was my thought too.
June 17, 2013 2:36 pm Thanks for the tip. I watched the Jahn's spoiler free review, and his point at the end where "the tone of this movie is not really the tone set by the first three trailers" is I think what Paul is talking about above in his comment about tone.
June 17, 2013 2:06 pm Are we going to get a revision on the deaths of Pa Kent? Surely sacrificing yourself for a dog deserves honorable mention, at least! :)
June 17, 2013 2:00 pm Here's another review, and I think Sims explains it better than I can. Just as an aside, I think I found more to like about the movie than Sims does, but I agree about his general assessment of the killing and Clark pretty much doing what he was told the whole time. http://www.comicsalliance.com/2013/06/17/man-of-steel-on-my-planet-the-s-is-for-sucks-spoilers-review/
June 17, 2013 1:36 pm "I’m curious to know what your friends meant by not enough “heart”." He meant, it's an action-packed slugfest, without developing any real connection to the characters. Not enough heart, in that, when Clark stands up to an army of Kryptonians, they weren't inspired to face great odds because it's the right thing to do, they were in for an eye candy treat of special effects battles. I love special effects battles, but if you can marry that with an emotional connection of some kind, well then you've got some magic.
June 17, 2013 1:27 pm Do you know what happens when a toad get's hit with lightning? They can't all be winners, I guess. :) It's even odder when you consider so much of the movie is about how Clark rejects his Kryptoninian roots and identifies as "human".
June 17, 2013 1:20 pm @ IhoSapien, :) Thanks! I forgot that line.
June 17, 2013 1:13 pm Those AR clips are soooo bad (as a rule, there are exceptions), and they are bombing my youtube feed. Your reminding me that I need to unsubscribe from Marvel's updates, because there are just way to many now.
June 17, 2013 3:55 am As an aside, a coworker and his 12 year old daughter saw it. This guy is not a comic fan whatsoever, though his daughter is. They both wanted to love the movie, but didn't, saying "too much action, not enough heart". They were so pumped they went to the midnight show opening night. Just thought i'd share that since there are a lot of accusations that folks who didn't like it were looking for adherence to comics or, weirdly, the Donner films.
