Re: Comparing the movies Thor and Man of Steel
The first corresponding shots are really stretching the comparison. Superman is in the process of getting pounded on by the Kryptonian lunging at him, while Thor is getting knocked back from the destroyer. They are almost opposite actions. The last two are basic shot-reverse shot camera setups that can be found in every recent film ever made.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
