Went to a midnight show.
I'll preface this with the fact that I loved the Nolan Batman movies, and was really let down by Star Trek and IM3 this summer. They just felt been there done that...but this..
I loved it.
I'm seeing a crazy divide in reviews and discussion, and I really think this may be a generational thing, or...maybe a nostalgia thing? The movie is uncompromisingly modern and barely even attempts to do what has come before. Whether thats the old Movies, the cartoons, or TV shows.
I really think if the Donner Superman movies are your thing, then maybe even avoid this. I grew up with them, but they never were my thing.
A lot has been made about the ending being TOO actiony, and I can't fathom that criticism. Its just so huge and really, I've never seen stuff this big before.
I'll be interested in what you all thought. The acting, and the designs, and the deep mythology of Krypton was all just so good. I loved the new dynamic with Lois. And while there weren't a lot of funny bits, they they did show up it was great and a gave you a breather. The religious stuff is there and I think handled really well...it's kind've unavoidable.
I think Superman is this gigantic litmus test. Fans and non fans alike instantly know how he should act and what he should do. This movie really puts that to the test.
