I am surprised the rating on Rotten Tomatoes has gone down as much as it has, but nothing in the negative reviews has made me any less enthusiastic about seeing it. I've seen, and loved, plenty of movies with lower scores than this. I'm more than used to agreeing with fewer than 60% of movie critics.

Yea, there's always plenty of trailers for movies these days, you should be able to make your choice from them, and to heck with the Pro critics, unless you find yourself generally agreeing with specific ones, and you see things you don't like in the Trailers.

A lot of the reviews, to me, seem like they're complaining that MoS isn't enough like the old movies. And yet Superman Returns got blasted for being too much like the old movies. I think the movie's going to do just fine.

What? Are these critics full of shit or something?

Then I won't be listening to them at all myself.

I'm hearing "too serious, not charming/funny enough". I was talking about the review in the local paper and my dad said, "So it's too much like Iron Man?"

I was like, "No, it's too much like The Dark Knight. Apparently it's not enough like Iron Man."

Because of RDJ the public now expects every superhero project to be a laugh riot.

As I read this I heard the opening chords of "Also Sprach Zarathustra".

Warner Bros. reports that Man of Steel has already grossed $21 million. $9 million came from midnight shows and the other $12 million came from a Thursday corporate group sale screening program.
Boom!

I really feel, and forgive me for saying this again, it seems like much of the negative criticisms are coming from critics that do not like summer blockbusters or superhero movies.

From a random person on another website:

"Man of Steel. What a piece of crap. I walked out of the midnight show a little more than halfway through."



I mean, people have different tastes, I can see some people thinking it's bad, but walk-out bad???

I don't give a flying fuck what movie reviewers say when it comes to picking a movie to see - there's an enormous amount of direct information about every film out there, you know, on this thing called the Internet - and I can't recall the last time that a movie disappointed the expectation I had going it.

BTW, as little sway as these Internet reviewers have on English speaking audiences, they have virtually none in the rest of the world. Man Of Steel is going to make bank big time internationally.
I have really simple criteria when picking a movie because I'm time rather than cash poor - does it look like it will be fun for two hours?

DC versus Marvel rivalry can reach insane levels on the internet. I wouldn't trust that every random person posting about a superhero movie is on the level.

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

I voted A- on the review thread. My review is spoiler-heavy but ultimately it's a very spectacular and epic movie. The cast are brilliant and I never once missed Reeve or Routh. I had my problems with parts of it, but I won't go into that here. My advice would be to see it.
