Re: A second viewing
Had several viewings of it and I'm not going to go as far as saying that "it gets better every time", but by viewing No. 2 I was perfectly satisfied with it. Subsequent viewings can anger me if I pick up things I didn't before or put things in a different perspective (as it happened with Returns, which I ended up hating after subsequent viewings).
In the case of Man of Steel, whatever bad I had to pick up (and there was a lot of it) I managed to do the first time around. With the second viewing I picked up whatever good things I missed the first. I balanced it all out, found that the good far outweighs the bad in the bigger picture and every time since then has just been a joyful ride.
