Dunno about you guys, but I saw the movie and enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to where they'll take this.

I like the serious/dark take on Superman. The only thing I didn't like in the movie was the Jor-El AI. Why is it even in there, and how was it there 2,000 (or however long it was) years before Baby Supes arrived?

So despite seeing the film four times in four days, apparently I missed nearly ALL the more subtle classic Star Trek easter eggs.

If you've seen it, you might check out this feature on it:

Box office wise, B.O. Mojo indicated Hangover III led Thursday ($11.8M), though it opened weaker than Darkness did on its "stealth" Thursday opening last week ($13.5M), albeit on a couple hundred or so fewer screens. I'm not really convinced these "soft" Thursday starts are really boosting summer movies much -- money is money of course, you just wonder if it almost waters down the Friday opening excitement. Darkness chipped in another $5.1M to reach $108.8M domestically/$189.3M globally.

So at the very least, the film has about recouped its $190M production cost. And there are definitely many, many countries it hasn't opened in yet (BOmojo also doesn't update international figures as often as domestic stuff).

I know it's not just me that read that as "body odor mojo".

Carry on.

I'm probably wrong, but I think that's shown in one of the trailers -- explosions all over the place. Krypton probably got blown up, but the planet didn't blow up per se, if you know what I mean?

103  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [?] Buying an iPad Soon[ on: February 17, 2013, 06:02:56 AM
Had the original iPad, now the 3rd Generation. Both 16 GB. Never really had serious problems. I did run out of memory, but after deleting a couple of apps I don't really use, I'm good.

As for transferring media, I never use iTunes. I just toss them in my Dropbox folder and it shows up on the iPad. I favorite the ones I want to view offline when required. Easy.

As for conversion, the iPad's native video player only supports .mp4 or .mov, but if you don't want to convert, just buy a player that supports other formats. AVPlayerHD is a good one I hear.

I'm generally on the previous-gen systems. Once the PS4/XBox Next (or whatever) comes out, I'll likely be mashing the controllers of PS3/360.

On the plus side, doing that saves me massive amounts of money! smile

Yes you can -- however without a receipt if you disagree with the date of purchase in their database you're SOL. But other than that, you're good without a receipt.

I would call New Spring an optional thing and not required reading. I definitely wouldn't start with New Spring since it will spoil things in the first book at least. I think it was intended to be read by people after reading the first few books.

I actually thought New Spring sucked, even though it seems many liked it. Dunno.

So, it's probably ridiculous to ask, but is the series worth reading?

Well, the first 6 or so books are pretty awesome. Then it sucked for books 7-11. Then it became awesome again for books 12 and 13.

I can't wait to read this, but that's only because I read all the previous books. Would I start if I haven't? I'm not so sure...

As for what type of fantasy it is, I would say it's its own beast. But if I must choose, I think it's slightly closer to Martin than Tolkien. But it's still nothing like those two authors.

Cleveland isn't in the Northeast.

Last I heard we (Boston) are expecting a typical slopstorm (what they call "a wintery mix") tonight, changing to heavy rain and high winds tomorrow.

Actually I agree with you, BUT;). This area IS considered the northeast, look it up. It doesn't make much sense, but that's what it is;).

the Census Bureau called and said you're wrong.

I'm just surprised to see Maryland and Delaware are considered The South.  Tongue

I suppose the Census Bureau has the final word, but other sources I checked are inconsistent about those two states. As someone who lives here, I've always understood the Northeast to mean New England plus NY, PA, and NJ. We will probably admit DE, but I'm going to need to review MD's application more carefully.  

I've always included DC in the northeast, so that'll necessarily include MD.

VA is where it ends, though.

So I'm putting it up here explicitly. It's Windows 7 Ultimate. The 'official' DVD is 32-bit. I downloaded and made my own 64-bit DVD, which is included.

It's all legit -- the product key is good for BOTH 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions. Proof from a quick Googling

I kind of specifically indicated that zany wasn't necessary.  And Returns is not for me, either.

I'm all for a realistic Superman movie, but that's still possible without making the whole thing drip with somber gloom.

The somber, gloomy parts of the Batman trilogy are my favorite. You can say that it's because it's the fucking Batman, and this is Superman -- which is true. But a dark take on Superman is looking HOLY SHIT I SHIT MY PANTS awesome -- just as a zany take on Batman is not-quite-shitting-my-pants-but-still awesome (Adam West anyone?). Different takes on the same heroes.

Surprisingly Costner's answer to the young Clark sitting on the back of his pick up is one of the most interesting points of the trailer for me,we have all grown up knowing Pa Kent instilled good into Clark and taught him about Values etc,So Costner's Pa Kent saying that made me raise my eyebrows a little

Man of Steel looks like its going to have a lot of questions and a really interesting story
Agreed. I just don't want Snyder's Superman to be mopey, ya know? I think they can take this different tact without reducing him to a constantly sad, unhappy character in a movie with no sense of fun. imho the first couple Superman films had both a sense of seriousness and a sense of fun, and that's really not easy to balance. I hope Snyder can achieve that.

I can sort of see Nolan's involvement as far as wanting to ground - as much as possible - the story in the concept of "Well, if Superman really could exist, how would our governments and populace respond to it?" Would we embrace him and just welcome him, or would we automatically see him as a walking time-bomb and threat to civilization? Or as a 'weapon of mass destruction' that a government needed to control. And does that veer too far into X-Men territory?  icon_smile

We'll see if a summer movie audience can handle that kind of ambiguity vs., you know, obliterating masses of space aliens. I embrace both. icon_smile

This echoes my concerns as well.  I can't say that these trailers have made me excited for Superman at all.  The color palette alone is quite dim, and that seems to be echoed by the whole tone of the film.  Frankly, it's not really what I'm lookong for from a Superman movie.

I'm willing to give it a try, of course, but if it's just mopey with no sense of fun, they've missed something essential with the character, I think.  A Superman film doesn't have to be light.  The chracter doesn't have to be a boy scout, either, but he shouldn't be grim or morose.

The grim, dark tone of the trailer is what got me really excited about the movie. You want fun and zany? Superman 1, 2 and Returns is for you. I enjoyed those films, but I am really looking forward to a more realistic Superman movie. Well, as realistic as a flying, invulnerable guy from outer space can be, anyway biggrin
