Man of Steel
Man of Steel (2013)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Just saw Man of Steel. Most of you know how much I love movies. I get criticized all the time for liking movies everyone else hates. Well this movie is probably going to change that.


I like the idea of changing a story, bringing it up to date, and yes I agree the Superman mythos has gotten dated. They changed too much. They broke the rules. They thought of Superman as nothing more than a super powered alien. This is not Superman, this is not a movie that should be called Superman. It is not clever, it is not good entertainment. It is a basically a 2 hour long super power fight scene. Superman has always been a comment on our times. A person that, though he had super powers, was as good, kind, confidant, and noble as the best of humanity. That is NOT the character of this Superman. I have rarely been so disappointed in a movie, especially one that I had pretty much no expectations. Sad thing is it will almost certainly be a blockbuster and they will make more, and it will make

What an amazing journey. So many references and jokes that only children of the 80's would understand, told in near rock opera format. Every actor putting in first class comedic and singing performances. More laughs per minute than any movie I have ever seen.

John Carter

I enjoyed the movie and their take on the appearance of the books. I thought the John Carter did a good job, as well as the very transparent CGI actors looking completely real. The calot Wolla being exceptional. Dejah Thoris was a little flat but still worth watching. All in all a very entertaining show.

They were great when I was a kid, they were great today. Thank you Jason Segal for writing a brilliant, silly, funny, and very sentimental walk down memory lane and a good vehicle to bring them back. The Muppet's are still as awesome as they always were.
