    as usual I pretty much disagree with everything he says. Man of Steel was a great movie as was Star Trek and ST: Into Darkness.

    I don't disagree with Moviebob, but I don't agree with him very enthusiastically either. I think he's a little hard on the Star Trek movies too but I didn't especially like those enough to defend them either.

    Finally saw this today. Felt that the movie began very strong and did well up until the point that Zod showed up. Then it seemed the movie changed tone and became something else, namely the slug-fest people are complaining about. I like this better than Returns, but it had unnecessary flaws.

    i agree, i love the film, but that weird slug or tentacles, whatever they were, could have been left out for sure. that was odd and unrelated imo to the film. everytime i see that.. i yawn or get upset there were other parts i did not like, but the slugs are the WORST!

    i wonder whose crappy idea was that? snyder? hmm.. and those DAMN BRIGHT lights in our eyes / faces and blueish tint to the entire film HAS to STOP in the next film

    You do know that a "slug-fest" is not the part of a movie that involves slugs and / or tentacles. A slug fest is (as the dictionary puts it) "A fight marked by an extended exchange of heavy blows" right? So the massive fight between Superman and Zod in which they punched each other through buildings and did billions of dollars worth of damage...that was the slug-fest.

    Did I imagine it, or did they throw in a little of the george reeves flying effect when he flew for the first time?

    Got around to watching the rest of it...

    I didn't care for this Superman. Not just the movie, but the character. There was far too MUCH action and not enough time really spent on the characters. about the only character he bothered saving was Lois, minus those guys on the rig at the begining.

    And also, Nolan....your characters NEED themes. What you do for them isn't a theme. it's just notes ascending and descending in a standard order. Only Randy Rogel can turn something like that into a real SONG. What you guys did didn't even come close....All I kept on thinking was, "OK, this short little tune is getting ready to ramp up into a full on theme.....it's getting ready.....wait, this is it?"

    Batman suffered this fate, as did Superman...but I hope Justice League has a REAL theme and fares better

    the types of critiques that guy gives, ANY one can write those, and try to be witty. its just all fluff. gets annoying after a while. i find them funny more than an actual opinion.

    Looking back I'm feeling that Man of Steel is one of my favorite modern superhero-movies. I loved the scale of the action. It really fleshed out how small and vulnerable us human beings are compared to kryptonians. I hope the future movies keep this up and deepen this theme. Does Kal-El consider himself to be an equal with humans. Do the laws of men abide to him as well? Does he pledge allegiance to a flag or to a set of laws. Will he impose his control over humanity on some scale? Damn, now I got so excited I'll have to re-watch the movie again!

    I liked "What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World?" as Henry Cavil's theme song.

    I noticed that in Begins; there is actually no main theme. What is passing for music there and in MOS would usually be backgrounds strains for the real music. My main interest in music is movie soundtracks, and I've yet to buy any from the Nolan films or MOS. Where are Williams and Elfman when you need them?

    I have to agree on the lack of theme music. One of my big gripes with the Nolan trilogy is the music, actually. I completely get why they didn't want to use Elfman's theme, but there wasn't much there to take it's place.

    However, if you're so inclined, listen to the score from the Arkham games, particularly Arkham City. I absolutely LOVE the theme they worked up for City. It's very Batman - dark, ominous, powerful, but still very Batman. There's also a Gotham/Joker version of 'Carol of the Bells' they use in Arkham Origins which is great as well. Really fits the mood. They used the song "Short Change Hero" by Heavy for the trailer for City, which I thought was a great fit as well.
