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.
Be sure to read Book of Evil Part 2: The Bells of Doom, only in the He-Man.org Fan Fic & Media forums!
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.
Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!
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

Now you know and
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
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 will use this power for all the good that can be done, to work for peace, to encourage virtue, and above all, to preserve life in all its forms..." Superman
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.
