    lol, not getting hopes up for Man of Steel

    a) because it's Superman, he's too boring and b) I get underwhelmed when having high expectations (TDKR, Skyfall, IM3. Avengers was the only exception).

    I thought it was ok. Just nothing special.

    And I think Cooper's likability are being factored in far more than his ability.

    I think Cooper has a lot of potential- but he wasn't near ready to play that role to it's limit. Was pretty pedestrian to me.




    Jennifer Lawrence was ace though.

    What's amazing is she's only 22 and how seasoned she is. Watch Winter's Bone, which was made 3 years ago and her breakthrough role. Some people are just born with "it".

    Yeah, she's definitely got a long career ahead of her.

    Saw Gatsby tonight and really liked it.

    It wasn't too stylized... which is what I feared going in. The Jay-Z/Kanye annoyed me, but it's only in bits and once the fun dies, so does the out of place hip hop.

    (disclaimer... I love Kanye and like Jay Z. Just not for a movie in the 20s.)

    Being the bow tie, chino, saddle oxford, Brooks Brothers wearing nerd I am, the style and costumes alone had me.

    I hate Toby McGuire, but he didn't annoy me as much as usual. At least he fit this role.

    Yeah, I lost a lot of zeal for Reloaded and Revolutions after re-watching them. They're not really about anything other than stylized cinematography and techno music.
