Jazzville Skyline: “…look…up on the screen…”

Rocky-Oby rocky-o

It’s a bird!…It’s a plane!…It’s a computer graphic!…

To follow along with the ‘enough is enough’ category, I propose that the new Superman movie, “Man Of Steel” be acclaimed as the utmost purveyor of abused and recall I have ever seen…

Besides the fact that every scene is stolen from another movie, (like “Star Wars”, “Independence Day”, and “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind”, among many others), and even passing up the implausible product placement, (like the ‘Sears’ logo in perfect condition after one of the many fight sequences), the one thing they forgot about was storyline…

I know…many will argue that the evil Zod wanting to rebuild Krypton was the plot, but…for over two hours, with most of the time wasted on things blowing up by the click of someone’s mouse…

Not good enough…

The casting this time around was o.k….much better than the previous Superman reboot, which featured a Lois Lane that looked like she was twelve years old…My only real grievance with this Lois Lane (played by Amy Adams), is simply the fact that she is not tough enough to be Lois…(I don’t think Lois ever used the word ‘tinkle’ when she had to pee…)

Supey himself was fine, what little screen time he had compared to falling buildings and such…I did like the use of Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Ma and Pa Kent, as well as Russell Crowe as Jor-El…but, primarily, every one was really just reduced to minor moments between ‘computapalooza’…

Like the recent “Iron Man 3”, this film is fine for entertainment’s sake…perhaps for about a half-an-hour on Saturday morning…Not for the cinema that once brought you classics like “All The President’ Men” and “Network”…

Maybe they’ll get it right on the next reboot…
