Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Drift happens, especially when there's a gap in new information.

When ever you say you like X and hate Y somone will come back with the opposite view and question your opinion, taste and sanity.

Nolan is involved in this film, discussing his and Snyder's past work is a valid tack.

If you really think the thread is off track and the posters aren't following the rules hit the notify mod button.

No one like a mini-mod.

I don't think, at this point, it's actually breaking any forum rules or is something the mods need to enforce.

It's just, personally, frustrating to see 3-4 pages on non-MoS topics (albeit connected by one of the producers on this happening to be the director on something else). I'll stay out of it then; continue.

I'm perfectly fine with them doing an origin, I just don't want it to take up half the friggin movie again (or, as with Batman Begins, 3/4 of the movie).
I would normally agree. However, it seems to be thematically important. As long as it's relevant to the plot, I can't complain.

Yeah, lots of credibility lost there if he thinks Batman Forever and Batman and Robin were better. Schuemaker is the guy that really screwed up the franchise, not Nolan.
I know people are getting annoyed by this conversation, but I figured I neded to answer this. Batman Forever and Batman & Robin are horrible movies, but I can watch them from time to time. I guess, for me, they have a so bad its entertaining feel. They suck, but they can keep my attention, and make me chuckle at how bad they are. So, in that respect, they are better than TDK or Rises to me. Those movies are slow, long, boring, and I obviously hate them. I wouldn't rewatch them (well, ok, I've probably seen TDK twice since it came out, but 2 times in 4 years, and probably never again, isn't much). So, yeah, to me they are much better than TDK or Rises, but that doesn't make them good movies by a long shot.

I actually enjoy Batman Forever and Batman and Robin more than the Nolan movies. I grew up on Adam West as Batman so I see those films as more of an homage or modern telling of that style of Batman films.

While I may like Nolan's Batman movies more than you I do see your points. For me superhero movies need to have some fun in them and Nolan's movies, while suspenceful for me, did not have any fun in them at all.

Can I get a non-spoiler summary of that?

There weren't any really huge spoilers but since I don't know what someone else might consider a spoiler I won't go into any details:

The story is simple but well executed. It's character focused and it makes you look forward to a sequel. There is also lighthearted humor in it.
The action is great and there's quite a bit of it. It feels like the first time Superman has been done justice in live action.
Cavil is a great Superman that makes you care and want him to succeed.
Zod is badass with great lines.
The Lois/Clark/Superman relationship is the weakest part of the movie but it doesn't mean Adams gave a bad performance. She's better when alone or with the rest of her crew.
The rest of the cast is strong too.
The music is nice, sometimes slow and emotional other times epic. The main theme is different but it fits MoS.
The villains for the potential sequel are hinted.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Eh, I don't trust that review, mostly because I liked Iron Man 2 (it wasn't as good as IM1, but its a solid movie, although the villain sucks) and hated TDK, the opposite of the reviewer. Plus, the person states they don't care how Superman/Clark Kent has been in comics, so that probably means that this superman is just as dark and brooding as I thought Nolan would make him. This movie does sound like Nolan's style of garbage. The movie sounds like exactly what I expected. Nolan's Batman movies with a Superman skin. Comparing it to The Matrix is just weird, and comparing it to Batman Begins means that it may just be mediocre, not horrible (Batman begins being the only Nolan movie I don't hate, although it wasn't a good movie by any means, it was just extremely mediocre). There is a chance the movie may be slighty better than TDK or Rises, since there isn't much chance that Cavill could be a worse actor than Bale, but its still going to be the worst of the SM movies.

Regarding the higlighted section. Your mind is closed and made up. What would itt ake for you to go to the movie with a more open mind?
