General Zod - Man of Steel (via myatmosphericflight)
Zack Snyder turning General Zod into a playground bully with one terrible piece of dialogue.
Man Of Steel has a lot of problems. The non-linear timeline and constant, seemingly random splicing of flashbacks was irritating. Clark was a hollow cypher rather than a character which was an odd result seen as the film spent an awful lot of time showing us his backstory. Parts seemed way too sombre and somewhat dull for a superhero movie. Michael Shannon is also far better than the caricatured evil villain Zod allowed him to be. I could go into greater depth about what worked and what didn’t work, about what I think the film wanted to achieve and what scuppered it, but many actual film critics have done that already (check out TWOP’s review). Instead I want to summarise the more ridiculous faults of Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel:
just because a television show doesn’t actively address a specific issue doesn’t mean they’re actively avoiding it either. you know what happens when you try to stuff every possible social debate under the sun into one show?
you get glee.
that’s what happens.
