Avengers Academy is one of my favorite new comics. I love students. They’re all great characters and it’s been fun…

August 28, 2013 11:44 am I have been going back and forth over this list several times (I love this stuff). I think it's really interesting as it truly points out how much of a "flop" summer we have had this year with blockbuster movies. I know that's something everyone and their dog as announced already but when you see the potential of "comic book films" or "Franchise Films based on IP's" and then see how short everyone, except Warner Bros, has fallen. Also, why has Sam Raimi not been given the same deal the Christopher Nolan has? Three of the films he has directed make up the top ten. Maybe, Drag me to Hell didn't blow up the box office but shouldn't he get some sort of credit to do whatever he wants at this point?

June 18, 2013 1:39 am Also and this is something my wife said and I agree with was "Why do they have to make these things so complicated? Superman is a simple story!" I got a say I agree with her.
June 18, 2013 1:28 am HEY I just saw this! Will anyone read my comment this far down? WHO KNOWS! Let's see (I am trying to pad this comment so the spoilers stay off the recent comments page) Immediately I was enjoying this film because I always like when Superman has a a science fiction vibe. "Oooh we are really exploring Krypton. Cool that was a great Krypton scene. Oh, it's still going.....Okay....Man the art director must have just watched Prometheus and Game of Thrones recently. Okay finally we are off Krypton." Then after spending an unnecessarily amount of time exploring Krypton. We cut all over the place. I don't hate this but I did dislike the whiplash of Clark just showing up in Antarctica. It felt like 30 minutes had just been cut out of the movie explaining how he got there or even know about the place. Whatever, I can get over it. Jor-El shows up again. AGAIN explains everything that was explained already to us in the beginning. Also we get more Flashbacks of Pa Kent teaching Clark to sacrifice others for the sake of himself. I did not like this Pa Kent at all. AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES WHEN CLARK JUST LET HIS FATHER DIE LIKE THAT! Maybe this hit me personally because my own father has been having severe health issues, but that just seemed preposterous to me. I have to agree with those that found the destruction a little over embellished. Some of the fights were cool but the Superman I enjoy watching and reading keeps people safe and protects at the same time as fighting. It just got so ridiculous after a while. I even laughed out loud when Zod and Superman blast into space and out of a giant void of nothingness, still manage to hit the only satellite out there. Then Superman killing Zod. I know this happened a couple of times in the comics (I actually just read the Byrne comic where it happened, and while I enjoyed most of the Byrne Superman stuff I have read, I didn't like that at all.) Superman does the impossible. He saves the people without resorting to killing Zod. He FINDS A WAY. Just because they have Zod say "One of us has to die!" doesn't mean that it has to be so. Anyways. I didn't hate the film completely. I liked the flying stuff. I liked most of the Krypton stuff. I thought the fights, despite being overly disastrous were still kind of cool, but I cannot say I loved it either. Those two "death" moments really bothered me.
June 18, 2013 1:10 am I feel like there was a lot of stuff. A LOT cut out of the movie.
April 1, 2013 12:32 pm 1. Superman is wearing Pants in the first panel. 2. weird phone outside the window. 3. Lois Lane's backward initials. 4. Jimmy Olsens outfit keeps changing. 5. Clark Kent in a tux. 6. There is no Cat Grant. SHE SHOULD ALWAYS BE AROUND THE DAILY PLANET OFFICES!
