This Friday (the 25th of March) a bunch of us went and watched this movie by Zak Snyder. I didn't like the last one but with all the hype, of course I was still curious about this one. Sitting in the dark and frequently using my mobile phone as a light source I wrote notes as the movie progressed. Here they are, illustrated
Superman's hair style remained flawless throughout the movie. Through exploding buildings, fires, nuclear disasters, monsters and so on! This movie also teamed up with Turkish Airlines in a very weird way.
Whenever Lois was in the slightest bit of trouble (and also when she wasn't) superman swooped in to the rescue! What a creep!
It seemed like really the only way to beat superman was with Kryptonite, and I felt after a while this method just isn't interesting anymore, and just makes for any excuse to show batman beating up superman (Fans probably get off on this sort of a thing). I don't remember what happened int he original Dark Knight comic by Frank Miller, but it definitely was more intriguing!
This was movie was just grim grim grim. I feel like rather than advertise Turkish Airlines so much perhaps they would have succeed with some Anti Depressant commercials. I go to a movie to enter a fantasy land, not to see how everything just sucks! Zak Snyder, you've depressed us again!
I have no answers for this one! Is it some sort of a political reference to the terrorist attacks in Paris and that America stands united with France? Can you think of any other reason?
Superman releases a day before Good Friday? Superman, the saviour, that is doubted by his people, is persecuted for doing good, has special powers, came from the skies above .. dies, and then at the end of the movie, his grave trembles. Coincidence? Decide for yourself!
Other comments.. Many funny attempts during the movie to hide Zod's penis.. Doomsday being created and taking up about 20 minutes of the movie, a story that was the best selling comic of all time and took about 10 issues to complete! I say this is on par with botch up of Venom in Spiderman 3!
Now that DC comics owns Mad Comics, do they really go and do a proper satire of it?
