    I watched the Nokia trailer. I didn't realize it would be THAT much new footage. I'm pumped I saw it, but disappointed I gave in.

    As for this thread and the other non-spoiler one, I too have found it much easier to avoid the main ones; even if these two are slow as heck, it keeps me out of the discussion thread and that is a very good thing because I still have a week to go!

    I have only been able to avoid the Nokia trailer. But I read viewers "insane" comments. I am dodging it and the last 4 tv spots like the plague. lol. Oh and of course, absolutely none of the clips.

    I only watched a little bit of the 13 min featurette thus my avi.

    The first two theatrical trailers I've seen in theaters before every movie I've seen since they went public so I couldn't avoid those. :woot:

    Check the sig for my site's review. I had to skip the screening because of class, but thankfully, one of my writers was there and wrote a pretty awesome review.

    Again... isn't it a bit of a spoilery review for this thread?

    I honestly don't think so. Anything that comes off spoilery, I honestly feel has been spoiled in the footage we've seen thus far.

    I caved and watched the Superman vs Zod clip. It only went for a a minute and twenty seconds, and it was awesome, but I really, really wish I'd saved it for the theatre.

    And I saw a gif of Superman in the skulls, and a big wide shot cap of the same scene... I really wish I hadn't.

    But, I've not watched any tv spots or the Nokia trailer.

    I've heard the clip is insane! Not going anywhere near the those clips. I've seen enough. Also, I've stopped watching the trailers. That Nokia trailer is some jaw dropping material!

    I have to wait another 2 weeks for this :csad:.

    I just want to say that the majority of the negative reviews are boiling down to this not being a Donner film and Superman not being Christopher Reeve. I wouldn't be too concerned

    I'm actually quite sad he didn't give this an "AWESOMETACULAR" but he gave it to Into Darkness. WHAAA????? My kneejerk reaction before viewing is to strongly disagree. If this movie isn't as good as STID there's something majorly wrong here. Good thing I'm drinking currently, otherwise I'd be much more upset.

    I don't think he strikes me as much as a Superman fan or big on the comics/other forms of media compared to how he is with the Marvel stuff. Sure he's watched Smallville, but I don't think it's up there among his favorites.

    I just got back from Man of Steel. The only word that comes to mind is.. Epic. Henry Cavill nailed it imo

    Early reviews haven't been very positive, with the exception of ign

    It seems like as the days progress, the tide is turning, and hopefully the critics would catch on to what audiences saw and we might see more positive reviews?

    South African citizen here, movie only releases on the 28th here :(

    Staying away from my TV and most sites to avoid anything being spoiled. I accidentally read some spoilers for TDKR on a Facebook status and it seriously influenced my first viewing. I'm really glad to see the positive fan response, I think in the case of a comic book movie impressing life long fans is far more important than satisfying career critics and their arbitrary criteria. Really stoked to see this!

    It only premieres around that time here too, but lol. You talk as if critics have this predetermined judgement and don't accept anything new, if anything the criticism i've heard was mainly geared towards the amount of clichés and too much action.

    Not to sound confrontational, but it didn't bother critics when another comic book movie 'suffered' from those same symptoms. The consensus seems as though MOS should not only be a brilliant movie in its own right, but has to atone for the previously disappointing Superman movies.

    But hey, maybe that's just me. I just find it odd that what MOS gets criticised for several other movies have been exalted for. I'm just stoked for a decent rendition of a Superman story. Enjoy.

    I think that has to do with how certain elements were presented in the movie, in something like Sam Raimi's film over the top can work because that's his tone and anything can happen while in a "grittier" and more "realistic" setting that will not work.

    I give it an 8/10. I feel like it had some strong characters, an interesting plot, and good action. Certain characters feel lacking, and Metropolis isn't fleshed out at all. It isn't like Batman Begins in how the story's constructed. It's more like Spider-Man 1 meets The Avengers, if that makes any sense at all.
