Some of it was a bit kiddied up, too simplified, the tiny group of scientists and how they interacted with one another was cornball... but overall, this was a true visual feast, worth every penny and more that i spent, i'll eventually buy this for my collection.

Man of Steel - mixed review... TONS of sharp looking action, they didn't skimp on showing plenty of Supes mixing it up in epic battles, the waste they lay on earth is incredible, just tearing shit up left and right.

Cavill is rock solid, far better than Routh, he'll be even better in the sequel i'm sure.

Crowe had a much meatier role than i expected and did his noble best.

I love the themes they explore about aliens on earth, good ones against bad ones of their own kind, for those who've studied the actual alien presence on earth it hits right home, that theme is very strong in the lore and i have no doubt Nolan and Snyder tapped that vein.

But without going into every detail, i didn't like they way they tried to "Tarantino-up" the timeline and various things about how Zod and his crew came to be such bad people, among other things... but still, worth every penny i spent.
