Re: Superman TM 1978 vs Man of Steel 2013, was the world ready, what do you think?
I don't think MOS is as "divisive" as people claim. It's not that people weren't ready for a modern re-interpretation of Superman, it's most likely that a lot of people were just bored out of their minds.
S:TM is just a better movie. Lex Luthor and his henchmen seem a little campy in hindsight but remember this was during an age where people weren't going into superhero movies expecting "realism" or whatever the hell you want to call it. Actually considering it's the first of it's kind, no one knew what to expect at all.
The movie is a classic for a reason.
