Re: Man of steel

Cavill is a great Kal-el. He's confident - but not cocky, he still has that feel of unfamiliarity with everything in the world. There's a certain scene kind of near the end of the film that just embodied everything Superman for me. As for the supporting cast, Michael Shannon as I've said was a great Zod, although sometimes he had this kind of lisp that might have been Shannon's accent anyways so it wasn't too big of a deal.

Russell Crowe as Jor-el was beyond amazing. Strong, confident, has an unbreakable belief in his son that just shines through in Crowe's performance. Laurence Fishburne as Perry White was great, too, although I wish he would have got more screentime. He has this scene near the end that just brought most of the film home for me.

Without giving too much away, everybody else was pretty dang good and supplemented Cavill's performance as the Man of Steel flawlessly. Kevin Costner was a great Johnathan Kent.

The plot was sensible and nothing at all like TDK trilogy which I think is great because I can't stand those films. About the only thing similar to the original films I can say is that it has a scene of him flying over the Earth which was GREAT and I'm shocked that nobody else in the theatre got that despite them saying before the movie started how big of a fan of the original movies they were, and a bit of his origin story, but other than that, the movie definitely stands on its own and is probably the single most epic and well-done comic book movie ever.

Also, I didn't have any expectations for the film. I find that not having expectations allows you to watch a movie and enjoy it more, because if you do, some way or another, your expectations are not gonna be met lol.

Plus, I got a free advanced screening ticket from my friend, which is why I went. Otherwise I would have never bothered until it came out on DVD.
