I keep asking people this so I thought heck ill just make a thread for it. So what would you rate Man of Steel out of 10 and where would you rank it amongst your best CBM movies?
 
I have make one. But people just too occupied with the review.
 
I'll post after I see it, I have the 7pm showing so I'm a few hours away.
 
7/10 compared to tdk. this is the best superman movie ever written.

In terms of character, he is not charming, he is not witty. Otherwise, I would give the movie better score.

When I say the best superman movie ever written because I still dislike richard donner's movie plot where superman can turn back time. That is lame.
 
In line for the 7pm showing, I cant believe the number of Superman shirts here, this is wild!!!


Edit: Theater is packed

Mod, pls close the thread i created. here is neater and without the complaints on the way i put the rating.

I give a solid 9.

i think the critic are really harsh on Superman!!! The critic had me worried a little. Thought it would be like The Immortal movie.

ya, the destruction may be a little bit tedious. but No movie is perfect. You might wish for the romance to be a little more... the saving a little more.... the destruction a little less... but the whole story is solid... very well delivered, almost epic!!!

The best superman film. Period.
 
Full review coming tomorrow. In short -- you will believe a man can fly. 10/10
 
Im with you on this. I give it a 9.5/10 because I think some of the execution was a bit off but it still deliverd the goods. In the complet movie I was in the edge of my seat and everyone in the theater was also the same way.

We need Superman: The Last Son of Krypton to come out in 2015 and rush (LoL)

oops. there is no 9.5 option! Dilemma you have put yourself into. :D

i think MOS hits all the right spots gently and subtly. you gotta digest and think a little bit. it doesn't do the 'typical hero saving innocent' crowd-pleasing scenes like in Ironman / STM

I just would have rearranged the movie differently. All scenes are perfect, story is Perfect. I would have put the Krypton scene when Clark asked Jor-El of who he was. But that's just me :cwink:

indeed all scenes are perfect. just wish some of the scenes Zack can punch it harder and the tedious "piling machine destruction" is a little too much. lol.

and here is my wish lists.

the pa kent
i wish Clark would emotional break down in front of Lois when he talked about his father death. he should have blamed himself for not saving his father and being too selfish and too afraid. then to see Lois consoled him and there is where the affection grow.

the first introduction
i wish after the first flight they would have done it like Ironman. you know inserting some "the crowd pleasing saving scenes" over the whole world.

the piling machine and its destruction to cut half.

8/10. the way it was edited holds me at an 8.
 
DC/Marvel Superhero Movies Ranking:

Avengers 9/10
TDK 9/10
X-Men First Class 8/10
Iron Man 3 8/10
Man of Steel 8/10
The Amazing Spider-Man 8/10
Batman Begins 8/10
Iron Man 8/10
Spider-Man = Spider-Man 2 8/10
Superman the Movie 8/10
 
Better than Avengers and on par with the first Iron Man is my best comparative model
 
9/10

MOS
BB
TDK
Iron man
TDKR
The Avengers


This movie was amazing. Blows away any other CBM for me. Was it perfect, no. But it could never be. I do greatly look forward to the sequel to see a more fleshed out Superman story, but it hit all the right notes for me in the origin story.
 
This movie blows Avengers out of the water.

MoS 10/10
TDK 9.5 /10
Iron Man 9 /10
TDKR 8/10
Avengers 7/10
 
1. MOS/TDK. 2. Iron Man 3. Spidey II 4. BB. 5. TDKR 6. Xmen First Class (yep I said it) 7. Thor. 8. Avengers 9. Captain America
 
Having seen it twice now, I'd rank it:

1. The Dark Knight
2. Man of Steel
3. Avengers
4. Batman Begins
5. The Dark Knight Rises
