I appreciated them digging deeper into Krypton and touching on the mythos surrounding Kryptonian technology and exploration, but I did not enjoy the Smallville flashbacks. They disrupted the flow too much, IMO. Hmm, maybe when I attempt to remove the shakycam, I'll reorder some scenes... tongue.gif

Just got the Blu-Ray for MAN OF STEEL...loved the movie (saw it 3 times, 1 time in 3D). I thought they did a GREAT job re-telling the story and I loved how they did NOT do a straight chronology story since that has been there, done that with previous movies and TV. I wrote a review over at Amazon.com:

I noticed that when I hit DISPLAY the data bits or something like it shows in "Mbps"....and for MOS it ranges from 15-25 Mbps. Usually above 20 Mbps.

Does this mean anything, and how does this compare to other films shown in HD ? I think the peak Mbps for some Justice League animated movies reached into the 35 Mbps range.

I agree...

I felt some of the fight scene were slightly lengthy, but over all it's two thumbs up.

Pretty much thought it was awful. The fight scenes in this were so over the top they made Dragonball Z look subdued. As far as the franchise goes this film was about on par with Superman IV.

It''s a movie and a comic book movie at that. It's going to be over the top. Complaining about that is like complaining about cheese on a pizza. Ridiculous.

The disappointing box office of Superman Returns directly caused Man of Steel's contrarian take on the character. Man of Steel is a decent Hollywood blockbuster, more grounded in modern action Sci-Fi than the comic books that birthed Superman.

I really liked SR, I didn't see it in theaters, saw it in mine on HD-DVD.

That said, I didn't care much for MoS.

IMO, SR was a better traditional Superman film, but lacked his righteousness and optimism. It was just kind of depressing... A lot of the action scenes were well done. Making it less about the mythos and more about Supes Jr. seemed like an afterthought.

MOS would have been better if it had either A) taken more time to be an origin story, or B) taken more time to be an established-Superman vs Zod story. Basically, it would have been better as two separate movies. Lois Lane's involvement was just plain stupid and pointless and they spent way too much effort forcing screentime for her in completely implausible situations. But have I mentioned Zimmer's score recently enough? Saved the film.

You didn't need an origin story with this movie and we pretty much got one anyway with the Krypton section and the flashbacks. We know who Superman is we don't need another introduction to his character. Superman Returns was boring and horrible. If you're going to make a Superman movie go all out and that is what MOS did and they did it well.
