So today I did go see “Man of Steel”, the new Superman movie. I really was interested in the 3D and I always liked Superman when I was young so I was looking forward to it. But there sure isn’t any similarity in the old and the new other than Lois Lane, The Daily Planet, and things like that. This movie today was packed with nonstop action and not just the routine stopping a train or a speeding bullet. My friend said it reminded him of the video games that are out for Xbox and so we agreed that was the kind of audience that would be attracted to it. There are plenty of aliens and spacecraft, fight scenes and falling buildings and such but I think I prefer the more mild mannered Clark Kent of the 50’s.
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound …
I had never seen or even heard of the new D-box seating. The theater had a few rows of special seats that vibrate and move in sync with the movie. There were a couple in the lobby to try so we did and didn’t like it. Too much jerking movement. Reminded me of so many of the rides at Universal Studios. For those who do like that, it’s going to cost you extra for all that jerking around. $8 more! That brings the price of a ticket up to $20.
Well, it’s late so I’m calling it a night. Have a Blessed Sunday,
