Man of Steel 2013 – Superman is a Neanderthal
|October 21, 2013||Posted by Koanic under face reading, Misc|
The girlfriend visited, so I watched some movies.
Man of Steel 2013 was good. Lot of paralells to Thal alienation. Not too many cheeseball moments – at least, not enough to ruin things. The initial alienation sequence and family background are believable. I loved that. The classroom freakout sequence and bullying are what every single Thal kid goes through growing up.
This is the first Superman whose heroic reserve and character I actually appreciate. His backstory is better done than the new Batman, although the new Batman’s action and villains are generally better (not counting the annoying 3rd installment).
Superman’s acting is believable because Henry Cavill actually has deep eye sockets. He understands the man he’s portraying; they are the same. He has the high-forehead nobility of a Superman dedicated to ethical universals; perhaps even the occipital bulge for the initial aimless ambivalence; I can’t tell. But you can definitely see the socket depth in this profile shot.
An appreciably old Spartan Krypton. Its collapse doesn’t make sense – population collapse and resource exhaustion due to geographic stasis. But call it dramatic license. Can’t very well mention race mixing on the silver screen.
General Zartan vacillated between cheese and righteous MT fury. The Russian warrioress was enjoyable. Some silly CGI, but not too bad.
Here’s how I watched it:
- Go to Primewire.ag
- Find a working link.
- For Veehd links, register on the site, login. Then you can watch without downloading the adware plugin.
- Otherwise, the DaClips link works as of writing.
Next up, I’ll watch World War Z.
Don’t watch Iron Man 3. The feminazis and catamites finally managed to glom onto the franchise’s success and castrate the hero. It’s more Home Alone 5 than Iron Man 1. We go full circle from grit, sand and genocidal warlords to fake Cherokee Bin Laden and pacifist unilateral disarmament. Tony Stark blows up his suits because they make his girlfriend feeeeel bad. And she shows him up in physical combat. It is a wish fulfillment fantasy for the feminine imperative: neutering and housetraining the captured alpha. Downey Jr. is a meloney faggot for going along.
“I’ll always be Iron Man.” No you won’t. Without your suit you’re just a helpless fleshy target. An idiotic inversion of the message of the franchise. Empowering self talk does not stop bullets, dipshit.
He goes from PTSD over fear of an alien return, to blowing up every suit he has so his girlfriend can approve of his emotional progress. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you.
The only decent part of the movie is Downey’s adept melon co-opting of the little boy into servant role. Melon skills in action.
