Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)
It's like anything else in movie-making - it's simply a tool, a technique in the movie-maker's kitbox. It can be used well, it can be used badly. I don't think it makes a lot of sense to make a sweeping assertion about its validity.
When does the slow-down-speed-up-slow-down method used by Snyder really become a story-telling tool? i mean, when we see Silk Specter's hair wave about about as she rescues children?
