:P

Nope. In its own self-contained world, the movie is complete nonsense. The canonical miscues are just confusing (not the same ship as "Alien", but it crash lands and ends up in a near-as-identical position; same planetary system but a different planet; etc), but ultimately the movie had OD'd on its own fail juice.

At first I thought you were talking about an actual canon, then when I realized it was canon as in storyline/continuity, so I thought you were talking about MoS, because I generally associate that with comics. Keep in mind this was all while reading the quoted post. Then I got to Alien and finally realized what you were talking about. That previous post took me on quite the journey.

Man of Steel certainly lives up to the hype... of having the most and most shameless product placements ever.

I Robot and The Island stick out to me as having some of the most egregious.

You have to understand why they do it and sometimes I think it works ok - like the Autobots all being mainly GM cars, some of the luxury brands James Bond wears, everything in Back to the Future (Western Union, Nike, Tab, Pepsi, Calvin Klein, Texaco). It's only going to become more prevalent especially in television where ad revenue is diving.

Someone told me Warm Bodies was really funny, so I watched it. It was not, and I don't know if it was even supposed to be.

I didn't think it was funny. I thought it was a zombie take on Romeo and Juliette right down to the main characters names.

For someone that has such a particular set of skills, he sure is lousy at keeping his loved ones from getting kidnapped. Good for him on cashing in though.

His particular skills involve being good at recovery, but he's not so great at retention.

So many non family board questions I could ask you.

Yeah, pretty much. I enjoyed it, as I loved the original, but it was clearly a step down from usual Pixar fare.

I really enjoyed the soundtrack for some reason, and Randy Newman composed it (although I don't recall him singing anything).

Pixar, sadly, seems to be on the decline. Cars 2 was an abomination - my kids, diehard fans to this day of the first film, didn't really like it on release. They like it a bit more after re-watching it, but it was largely garbage. Brave was OK, but had a Dreamworks Animation feel to it (not a bad thing, just not great).

As much as I like to revisit old characters (an Incredibles sequel would be excellent, as would a Toy Story 4), I think Pixar needs to focus on telling new stories. Regurgitation doesn't suit their brand, so to speak.

I have been putting it off for far too long... but TONIGHT, boys and girls... TONIGHT, i watch Birdemic 2: The Resurrection. May God have mercy on my soul.

Honestly, not looking forward to it. I have a horrible feeling that it's just going to try way too hard.

Ok... Birdemic 2 was simultaniously better and worse than the first one. i kind of love it. but enough of that... moving on to that weird corner of netflix with Hansel and Gretel Get Baked... started off as a stoner comedy, but turned into a SUPER GRITTY REBOOT... i think i love this movie...

Anyone that enjoyed Man of Steel and would like to get into the comics should read Superman: Birthright. Man of Steel took a lot from that book.

Some more that I highly recommend are Superman For All Seasons, Red Son, and All Star Superman (the best Superman story ever).
