It was weak in the theatre as well. It's a shame it wasn't filmed in 3D.

Ralph, thank you for all you do for this truly wonderful website.

Are the trailers on any of the discs?

I'm reading other reviews that state the 2D only version of the retail BD have an extremely limited amount of bonus features.

If this is true, that would stink for those that do not have 3D capabilities - to have to pay more for the 3D version just to enjoy the more extended bonus features.  confused.gif  

Greetings,

I received both the 3D & 2D versions and both contain the same supplements. No worries...

Hi Ralph,

A weird question here: Have you had a chance to listen the Man of Steel official soundtrack? If so, have you found the familiarity with the soundtrack to enhance the movie-watching experience? After seeing Inception, I got the official soundtrack, and after getting very familiar with the tracks, I must say that upon re-watching the film, recognizing the tracks enhanced the movie experience. I'm now familiar with the Man of Steel tracks, and I can't wait to watch this movie again, knowing the tracks!

I watched the 3D version last night in my HT. If the mix is -3db I didnt notice, the soundtrack was amazing - the 7.1 mix incredible and even though gunshot and explosions were room shaking and ear splittingly loud, the Zimmer theme of hope always rose through perfectly from the chaos.
I was grinning from ear to ear - a pleasure to listen and watch.
Spot on review Ralph!

I watched it tonight, and i must say i LOVED IT smile.gif
The sound was impressive on my system and i couldnt get enough of it.

It was a little bit different to what i was used to from previous supermans and that kept me interested through out the whole movie.

P.S. Spoiler...

There is a scene when the army guys find what they believe is a submarine under the snow, and mention the ice surrounding it is a thousands of years old, where did this ship come from? supermans capsule is in the shed and he has been on earth 20 odd years... i guess i missed it somewhere

Given that Jor-El was wearing the same suit (minus cape) and Zod too, I think it was just a standard bodysuit for Krypton, under the armor.

I called it a while back...love seeing 100/100 for the audio. When I saw this in the theater and heard basically the entire second half of the movie going at top volume I knew it would be a powerhouse soundtrack if they did it right. Gonna pick this one up for sure.

I'll be adding this to my queue of either purchase or rent.

I have pretty much gone through all the typical Superman gambit from George Reeves reruns (when I was a kid), Christopher Reeves, the Lois and Clark series on up to the last one with Brandon Routh's Superman Returns. This is where I part ways with Ralph (grin). I was never a fan of the Christopher Reeves movies other than the first one. In particular, I enjoyed very much the scene of Clark growing up which remained somewhat true to the original story and allowed a bit of license for being a different era. - But then again, Reeves was not in this part of the movie.

Superman Returns for me was far more interesting because in this day and age, given the propensity of the masses to enjoy more action less story, it took an entirely different route by having a bit more personal drama for the hero. I consider this version a bit riskier and of course it was given the less warm welcome than the Christopher Reeves movies.

Hopefully, I'll enjoy this new movie and story and add it to my list of all the Superman stories I have enjoyed (and some not).

For those wondering why I didn't like the Christopher Reeves movies - simple .. each new movie that followed got sillier and sillier until it almost seemed like a self parody. I never considered "meek and mild" to mean acting clumsy and oafish as portrayed by Reeves. I do find Reeves to be a decent actor just never liked his take on the character (after the first movie).

Ralph - again, thanks for your take on the movie itself, the ratings on the experience side (audio and video) and I admit I am these days enjoying more the "super hero" stories that have a bit more depth - The Matrix, X-Man First Class, The Watchmen etc. I guess there are films for everyone now which is a good thing. As someone who pretty much stopped going to theaters, I find this forum to be one of my favourites whether I agree or not with some of the subjective. It remains great food for thought (and happily emptying my wallet on some discs).

I ended up Vudu-ing Turbo last week (early over in Mexico, I realize!) for my youngest and, to our surprise, it turned out very enjoyable for the whole family! I'll be getting that one 3D later on for sure! So, I think your family'll have a blast with it, Frank! The animation, the music, the characters, the comedy...all's good! smile.gif

Glad to here you +1 Man of Steel, too! Gots to have it! cool.gif

The limited edition 3D box set arrived today, for the extra $10 or so it was worth it. The plastic stand is in two pieces, one magnetically clips on the metal display case and the other is the base. The problem is it's wobbly where the two pieces of plastic go together, either I'm missing something here or some superglue is in order.

I don't think anyone is reading these blu-ray reviews for a review of the movie. The rest of the review, though, is helpful.

I don't think that I've ever heard Ralph refer to himself as a professional film critic, so I'm not sure that citing any credentials other than being an avid movie fan are relevant. I am certainly thankful that he provides not only a technical rating of the movies he covers, but also grading the movie overall. Ralph describes the movies with such effortless enthusiasm that he usually makes me want to see every movie he reviews, even the ones he says are only a rental at best. Not to mention his technical descriptions of the audio and video content are consistently detailed and eloquent; in my estimation, the man is a home theater connoisseur. These are things that I was never able to get from Roger Ebert, and with him gone, AVS is my only source for movie reviews. I consider reading them part of the overall entertainment of watching a movie for the first time. With that said, let's all get back to doing what really counts; watching great movies!

After seeing this release my thoughts on the film as a film haven't changed at how. However, the video is great and the audio simply superb. This is the best audio I have yet heard on a blu-ray disc. A score of 100 doesn't do it justice!

Picked up the 2D version at Target yesterday as they have a very nice Blu Ray book casing with lenticular front showing Superman and then Zod when rotated left to right. Inside there's a nice 65 pg. color booklet with excerpts from The Making Of, Welcome to Krypton, Welcome to Earth, and The Final Battle. Used my Redcard and saved 5% on the purchase. Watched it last night and couldn't agree more with all the great things said, especially the audio. Wow!! Great review as always Ralph!

I saw this last night for the first time, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. To me, this is the best portrayal of Superman in that it was more serious and realistic, and less chessy on the romance. The special effects were quite good and with CGI being perfected, it enhanced the enjoyment of this film. The bass in the film was deep and solid and had my Velodyne HGS-18 rocking. The 3-D was outstanding on my television with the picture being bright and colorful. This review was quite accurate, but I'd bump up the 3-D score to 90. wink.gif In any event, it warrants another viewing for me which is rare.

Sir,
I look forward to your reviews, as you give viewers a perspective on movies we all cannot go see. I did see this in 3D IMAX, and was waiting for your review. Even though I thought this a blind buy,
your five stars for LFE SOLD me. Cannot wait to give my three little subs a workout this weekend. Thanks for all you do!smile.gif

Between Target Exclusive edition and the Collector's Edition (got this for $25 at Walmart yesterday), it really bothers me that not even the Collector's Edition gets the store exclusive contents. Dark Knight Rises also did that with Best Buy Exclusive edition. I know those are not the only two movies with store exclusives (isn't Star Trek Into Darkness was worse with different store exclusives for different stores?)

Target exclusive contents:
"“X-Ray Vision” (EC) –30 minute:
Creation and Destruction of Krypton (6 minutes)
Clark Discovers the Scout Ship (6 minutes)
Battle on the Streets of Smallville (6 minutes)
The Military Might of Man of Steel (7 minutes)
Attack on Metropolis (7 minutes)

Here's my question. Blu-ray hasn't been like DVD days where it was common to see double or triple-dip getting new bonus contents. Most Blu-ray movies have mostly been going backwards by removing the bonus contents disc after the initial release. Is this how the movie studios plan to double-dip us in the future by releasing the store exclusive contents or they will be lost forever.

I know those are not the only two movies with store exclusives (wasn't Star Trek Into Darkness was worse with different store exclusives for different stores?)

Target exclusive contents:
"“X-Ray Vision” (EC) –30 minute in-depth look at the signature scenes from Man of Steel
• Destruction of Krypton
• Clark Discovers The Fortress of Solitude
• Battle on the streets of Smallville
• Clark Discovers the Scout Ship
• Attack on Metropolis

Here's my question. Blu-ray hasn't been like DVD days where it was common to see double or triple-dip getting new bonus contents. Most Blu-ray movies have mostly been going backwards by removing the bonus contents disc after the initial release. Is this how the movie studios plan to double-dip us in the future by releasing the store exclusive contents or they will be lost forever.



Hi, you got the same 3D collectors edition I posted the pic of for $25? I found it on their website for $3 more than I paid from Amazon.
