Yo people of the interweb!! How goes all that studying for exams and whatnot? yeah? Yeah? Well glad to hear it!!
Seriously though, happy studying y’all – hope nobody’s burning themselves out. Remember, small breaks here and there really help you digest what you’re studying!
Anywhooooo, I just wanted to give of a review, or vopinion, as I like to call it, on the lovely Man of Steel.
Loved the movie! So cool! They really twisted and revamped the story, quite the different spin/look at our man of steel. And I quite enjoyed it. It was different, so if you’re going in with a mindset of what you are expecting, well, you just might not enjoy it as much as you could….
And so, we get to the point where ONE THING really just peeeeeeeeved me straight off. I mean, I get that Warner Bros is an American production company, and yayayaa, this is an American made film, whatever. The point is -
Hrrrrrmmmmm, ok, I’m not saying anything, but fanboys and fangirls alike might get ticked at me if I don’t say it’s a quasi-spoiler alert…but it’s just a line….I don’t think it’s a spoiler…well, your call. If you’re good to go, read below this line ________________________________
- as I was saying, the point is, we have Superman at one point saying “I’m about as American as you get – I’m from Kansas” and this just made me want to SCREEEEEEEEAAAAAMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!! GAH!!! No. NO you’re not. Dear Superman, you are Canadian – and if you want to get technical, well ok, then you’re half Canadian. Jeeeez! I know I’ve got uber Canadian pride myself, but that just rankled me to the point where I automatically raised my hands to my head and started pulling my hair.
And then looking at the rest of the film, the only time Canada actually is portrayed, it’s with a nasty, no-good trucker that not a single CANADIAN (think the stereotype here…strong morals, friendly, polite – everything that SUPERMAN IS SUPPOSED TO EMBODY – geeez, wonder where her got that from, eh??!??!), not even the two Canadian Army guys, do anything about. What a bunch of crock! Baloney! PHOEY!!!!!
But other than that, SO AWESOME!!!! Loved it, great actors, super cool, wicked design. Success!!
