man of steel
"The money’s fantastic and that’s something which I deem ... very important."
I've been following the film's development pretty closely, and I've seen both trailers put out so far about half a million times. That being said, I've seen some red flags go up.
I believe comic-book movies -- and the overweening Comic-Con mentality that has consumed the Hollywood studios -- are strangling the movie industry, in part because these movies are so generic. Which may be why I enjoyed Ant-Man so much.
There are lots of movies that make Gareth Edwards' new Godzilla look like a masterpiece. That, however, is not the same as saying that this movie is actually worth seeing or, more crucially, worth making in the first place.
While I'm certain the Man of Steel sequel will be a cash cow for the studio, I worry that the film will fall well short of fans' expectations and put the future of the DC Universe in jeopardy.
No, the reason I liked Gravity is because it was short. The entire movie clocks in at 85 minutes. I pressed the "play" button on my DVD remote. And an hour-and-a-half later I was back at my job as Jaden Smith's personal assistant.
