I hate that! It's okay to show sex in movies, but taking a crap? No way... I want to see John McClane sit on the toilet with a red, sweaty face.

That's kind of what I mean. That one scene by itself is not a big deal at all. It's the compilation of scenes like the clothes, truck, drone and destruction aftermath that bother me as a whole. I just hope none of that is in the sequel. The only thing I ask of movie sequels is to learn from previous missteps. Bigger, larger, more CG everything need not apply

In the McClane household it's known as 'taking a Gruber'

As much as I agree with you, I think 'people' would have indeed thought the film better had they done that. Would have had some people clapping. Mark Waid leading the charge.
"Zack Get's it...Zack get's us" they might say.

^ @Poni_Boy This. I want MOS2 to be a more Earth-based warm, contemplative, character-driven movie. And I want Wonder Woman and Batman to be an extension of Clark's story. That is, Bruce being skeptical of Supes, with Diana being more trusting, but each trying to discover what they can about him as a character.

Dear General Swanwick,

I want to extend my apologies for destroying your Predator drone aircraft. Although I consider my privacy of the utmost importance, I realize that taxpayer money pays for valuable military equipment such as this.

As a token of my appreciation for those who protect our fine country with their lives, and the expense and inconvenience I've caused you....I've included a set of winter clothes with this letter. Hopefully they'll bring you the kind of warmth and comfort they once brought me.


Yours Truly,

Superman


P.s.: say hi to your driver for me.

People defend stealing in order to defend Clark's characterization in MOS? Damn.

He just did petty, selfish things and and there's no proof he learned from them/changed. Hopefully moments like those are excluded from the sequel.
Those moments were meant to be comical, especially the truck scene. It doesn't show him as being petty. Petty was the trucker grabbing the girl's ass, splashing beer in Clark's face, & throwing a can at him when he opted to walk away.

That's petty.

Comparing that to the fact that he ultimately saved the world...I'd say it's not a big deal at all.

While it is not unrealistic, the frequency of that happening is not as often as in previous generations, mainly because of the change in thinking. Having said that, I highly doubt people wouldn't be suspicious of Clark's appearance (right after the oil rig scene).

Yeah, but there was a bomb in the toilet. I want unnecessary toilet scenes! And people should make top ten lists.

"This toilet scene is so intense! The dramatic music when Bruce Wayne takes the hardest dump in his life...it's a masterpiece of crap!"

I have many problems but will only get into a few of them.

Lizard's Plan and Lizard/Connors as a whole:

Connors is suppose to be a sympathic villain in Spidey's rogues. He has a family and he's doing this for all the right reasons but this Connors just sucks. We don't see him with his family at all, he's obsessed with lizards which I don't get why Peter didn't pick up on that. It's just bad.

And his plan is to turn everyone into Lizards. Hell, Zod's plan in Man of Steel may have been bad. Zod could have done that on any other planet but after a couple hours, the Earth's atmosphere won't terrform back into it's original thing with those world engines. I mean after a couple hours of Lizard spraying Lizard gas over the city, you would change back to a human. It's a worse plan than Mr Freeze's in Batman & Robin.

Spider-Man's a dick.

If you see the movie, you know what I mean. I don't mind comedy with Spidey but there's a difference between saying punchlines to criminals and ****ing around with a criminal for 5 minutes after he's defeated.

The movie is boring and has no epicness.

The movie as a whole is just boring. There is nothing in this film that I haven't seen in the other Spidey films before. Sure Gwen and webshooters but just because your faithful to the comics doesn't mean it's a good movie.

Also it didn't have the epicness the Raimi film had. Look at scenes like when Uncle Ben dies to Peter beating the guy in the warehouse. Look at scenes like the Time Square Balloon thing. Look at the MJ kiss or the Bridge scene or the old school fight at the end between Spidey and Goblin where Spidey is getting his ass kicked. TASM, had nothing epic.

That film pisses me the **** off.

Speaking of the public, the second time I saw MOS was in a theater packed with regular moviegoers. There were two reactions that really stood out to me: People laughed really hard at the "I think he's kind of hot" line and people literally stood up and cheered when he broke Zod's neck.

Did any of you guys get the same reaction?

I don't like it either, but within the confines of the Goyerverse in terms of realism, I accept it.

Like Batman being vulnerable against dogs, for example.

People can't accept anything less than sainthood in a superman movie(all of a sudden). It's pretty crazy imo.

My audience laughed at some of the points, like the hot line as you said, and when Clark destroyed the truck.

Sure, that's petty too. But destroying a guy's livelihood because you want revenge from being insulted is moreso. Which is sad to me. I don't like or want a vengeful Superman
