Man, I've got really high hopes for this. Looks like it could be pretty good. I'll be taking my dad for Father's Day.

Braniac or Bizarro could be interesting also.

As a reader of actual novels that span many hundreds of pages, I honestly find it a bit offensive that comic book nerds get so uppity about crap like this based on a 30-year history of 500 comic books that have enough combined dialogue in them to read in an hour.
Nitpicking movies based on comic books is ridiculous to me. There was never substantive extended dialogue for detail in the first place, and comic books inherently have tons of room for interpretation because of that.
RolandDeschain wrote:Fistbump, Pehawk. I completely agree. People put too damned much merit into originality. Something doesn't have to be original to be good. If someone takes movie X that was good, but not great, in its original release and remakes it and now everyone gives it a 9/10, who CARES if it's not original?
It's also hypocrisy, and here's how: All of you people whining about the lack of originality in film have no problem with it in music. I can guarantee you there isn't a person on this forum that does not have at least ONE instance of a song that they like a cover version of better than the original version.
Why do you give music a pass for this and have NO PROBLEMS with popular songs being covered by 5-10 different bands over the decades, yet remaking a superhero movie or whatever is something to whine about Hollywood over?
I don't see you whining about Johnny Cash covering "Hurt" by NIN, or "Mad World" by Gary Jules, used to such great effect in the film Donnie Darko, or Jimi Hendrix's cover of All Along the Watchtower.
There are countless examples of covers that are as good as, or better than, their originals. Yet, some people have a major problem with Hollywood doing the same thing. Hypocrisy, I say.

Fixed it for you.
Yeah, I'm still thinking about it a bit tonight. It surpassed my expectations, for sure

I ain't gonna spoil it, but let's just say the whole second half of the movie could have been completely cut based on a logical decision in the best interests of the decision maker. Second, they destroyed more of NYC/Metropolis (whatever) than Iron Man and Avengers put together. To top that, Hollywood will have to create two gigantic colossi that duke it out all across America, stomping on every city large enough to have public transportation. My second favorite part was the first 20 minutes, up until they sent Zod's crew up to exile in those space penis-craft. My first favorite part was the Carl's Jr. commercials on TV.
Other than that, it was a decent popcorn flick.

THE... Funkmaster Flex was THAT all about? I think I was the only person in the theater who saw it cuz people were looking at me like I was nuts.
