Haha...Thanks guys! The only way I was able to do it was to avoid SHH and Supermanhomepage.com all together and stay off Yahoo's main page. They always have those little blurbs or pictures to entice to you click on an article. It was hardest the first month of the release when news was everywhere, but I was really determined not to be spoiled. And I'm glad I did that because when Supes killed Zod my eyes nearly bugged out of my head. I totally did not expect that. All the way to the end before you heard the bones snap, I thought Supes was going to find another way...but then BAM! I wouldn't have enjoyed that moment as much as I did if I had spoiled myself like rotten fruit...lol.

Umm...it's just more that it's a hassle. I also think it's because I'm older now and just not that interested. The excitement and adventure of seeing a movie in the theater has diminished for me. Plus, I got a pretty nice TV and enjoy watching movies more in the comfort of my own home.

I'm getting the impression that Comic N' Toons didn't like the movie...lol. Or he is incredibly cheap. I'm not sure which it is though...lol

If he hated it, he wouldn't want it. My guess is: he is cheap, and/or wants the most expensive version of MOS that will be great to own because someone else paid for it. Kinda like how food tastes better when someone lese paid for it, lol

So, for those that have bought this on Blu-ray or on DVD...after seeing the film again in that quality, has anyone's opinions about the film changed for better or for worse?

Lee, you know my opinion of the movie, and if anything seeing it on Blu Ray has enhanced it. More than anything seeing it in my own apartment in crystal clear quality the venhemence of the criricism of the film baffles me more. It's a great superhero movie and the film makers put a lot of texture into it. Are there things you could nitpick about even with all the attention to detail? Yeah. So did the entirety of TDKT. The film is really fun and not bleak. It's mission statement is just presenting things in a way that has maximum versamillitude, yet still be a film about an alien refugee that wears a blue body suit and a red cape that uses his godlike powers to save the Earth as a kind of gestalt scifi Hercules/Jesus. It's a modern Superman story and I hope a wider audience gets to see and judge for themselves now that the blu ray is out.

Yeah I don't understand the bleak complaint. The movie is a crap ton of fun with some great humor in there and one of the best and most upbeat endings of the year.

One thing I really like about the movie...I mean really LIKE is there are some ICONIC shots. I mean just loads of them that look like someone took the best comic pages and said let's make this shot look like this one! I even got a For Tomorrow vibe from that scene with Clark at the church, though that may not be deliberate since there are only like 2 people who like FT and I am one of them. Plus, the scene with Clark and Lois kissing in the rubble and him on his knees holding her!!!! My fangirl heart about exploded with joy just to see it!!!

When I first watched it I didn't really think it had rewatching power, but it does. I have to say that I am enjoying it more after multiple viewings, so I do think that means I really like it.

There are some things I don't like. One is I am familiar with Krypton and even I was confused by the first thirty minutes. Plus, the scene where Jor-El gives him the suit. It was like the writers and producers where saying we are going to get this part over with real quick, but it just felt a little rushed...which may have been the point, but still. It's the suit! You have to pump it up a bit.

Things are I really liked...Seeing Clark and hearing Seasons at the same time...and good Lord Jesus...did I mention those pectoral muscles? Did I mention that because if I didn't then I have to...I just have too.

That's my take..

Here is another guy who liked the movie: Dan Jurgens. He was interviewed at the PCCC podcast, which you can listen here:
http://pineconecomicsclub.com/2013/1...h-dan-jurgens/

P.S. His view of Zod's death: first it was a clean death, compared to the death of Zod from John Bryne's run; plus, yeah Superman could've done this, done that, or blocked Zod's heat vision, but that still wouldn't have resolved the situation.

Actually the humor wasn't all that great and the movie was bleak. I love the movie but those complain are kind of right in away. Most of the real humor in MOS where in the easter eggs. Here is some hidden humor in the movie.

This is what I literally did after that part until the end of the movie. I couldn't see it coming either. I avoided the Superman forums and didn't look at any TV spots before I went to the theater to see it. I didn't even expect the shock wave punches.

Me either...I swear it felt like was watching an episode of STAS or JLU. I seriously did not expect that destruction. I was like DAMN...just stunned. Even the fights...with the shockwaves and flying through not one, not two, but like TEN buildings.

I still don't get how the film was "bleak". It's a ton of fun, with amazeballs action. Are there also somber and serious character moments that made me cry? Yeah. Are there moments when you empathize with Clark and some, repeat, some his darkest days? Yeah. Still... Bleak? Depressing? I am sorry, I just find those to be overstatements at best, plain ole' mischaracterizations at worst. Yes, I was CRUSHED by the decision that Superman was written as having to make. His scream, like Reeve's scream in S:TM was primal and unvarnished. We see a Superman that has become the Last Son Of Krypton by his own hand. But we are left with the memories of Pa Kent and the start of Clark's career at the DP, and we know that he has found a mission, connection and purpose in life that he did not have when we first see him as an adult in the film. This is all hopeful, emotional stuff. POSITIVE emotions.
