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.
June 16, 2013 11:36 pm In Superman returns Clark is a fucking asshole. He watches Lois sleep, like a stalker. He abandoned his child, and then is a dick to the man that is raising that child with love and kindness. It's a horrible movie from start to finish. So, they kind of missed the point of Superman in that one. I guess it's to this films credit that folks care enough to say anything.
June 16, 2013 11:21 pm @Endless, it's probably not fair, but in animation, I'm trained to assume everyone is fine unless they show otherwise. Like, unless you see a pilot splat, the GI Joe parachute opened for them. I don't get that in film. If a building falls, I think "at least 5K dead". So for me, the comparison to Doomsday isnt really fair. That's probably just me though.
June 16, 2013 11:16 pm Maybe it's a Nolan thing. It's in Batman too. Bruce kind of destroys the Wayne name throughout the three films, culminating in abandoning the identity altogether at the end. I find it odd that both men are bent on wiping out their past.
June 16, 2013 10:16 pm The last thing I wanted was a retread of those old films. There are very few "sacred cows" w/ the character, as far as I'm concerned. Thou shalt not kill was one of them, at least for me. There was also the fact that it was a disjointed collection of scenes that never quite made a cohesive narrative. But it had some great scenes too, and if folks enjoy it, then mission accomplished, I guess.
June 16, 2013 10:14 pm Certainly. In fact, with the Scout Ship, Zod pleads w/ Clark to not destroy the ship, and he specifically states "Krypton had it's chance...*laser eyes*". I'm just curious what the writers were going for? Did this messiah have to destroy all the vestiges of the old heaven? Did Clark just want to be the only one who was special? I don't know why this person who has been searching for 33 years for a kindered spirit felt it necessary to then destroy all trace of them.
June 16, 2013 10:10 pm I hardly consider the Donner films cannon. He also throws a giant plastic bag S.
