Re: MAN OF STEEL - Grading & Discussion

Great movie. Handheld cameras got old after a little bit, and the fight scenes at the end went on a bit too long for my tastes, but these are very minor quibbles. I thought Lois Lane especially was used well, much better than before, and I didn't miss anything about past interpretations of Superman. Given that so many of the reviews called this movie "cold" and without much "heart", I was surprised at how well the emotional beats worked, especially everything that went on with his adoptive parents.

Random thoughts:

I liked Zod, but I think I liked his female lieutenant more.

Smallville has a Sears, an IHOP and a Seven Eleven, eh? Or rather, had.

And hey, the movie made me like Russel Crowe. That's a first.
