It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's...

Review: Man of Steel

When news first broke of a new Superman film, I have to be honest, I didn't really care all that much. I was excited about the prospect of an eventual Justice League film, but as for the Man of Steel himself, I could not have cared less. He's too overpowered, I thought. Every challenge is no real challenge for him, so there's never any sense of danger or excitement. Unless, of course, someone finds one of those shiny green rocks. It's been done again and again and again. Who cares anymore?

But then Warner Bros. brought on Christopher Nolan, the director of the phenomenal Dark Knight trilogy, as a producer, mentor, and godfather to the project. That was good news indeed. Perhaps he could help to revitalize Superman the way he had for Batman. And then David Goyer, Nolan's creative cohort, was hired to write the screenplay while Zack Snyder was hired as director to bring the same eye for action to the film as he had brought to other comic book adaptations 300 and Watchmen.

2013 Summer Movie Reviews - May

Hey everyone! Long time no see. Which is weird, cause I figured being out of school would give me more time to blog. But here's what's weird, I discovered this entirely new thing that keeps taking me away from my computer. I'm told it's called "the outside." And boy is it cool! Kayaking, Busch Gardens, yardwork, cookouts, swimming, bonfires. Plus, I am still working and seeing pretty much every movie that comes out. Who knew there was so much to do!

Hopefully you can understand that I'm trying to make the most of my last summer at home before making the harrowing journey to the real world. (Kinda, I'm just going to grad school lol.) But I missed yall too! So here's a look at just about all the movies that came out in May including Iron Man 3, The Iceman, The Great Gatsby, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hangover III, Fast & Furious 6, After Earth, and Now You See Me.
