To the “Man of Steel” movie, and Gen. Zod is a TERRIBLE actor.
How did all of you LIKE this movie? I’m not even coming from a “I hate Superman” point. Just based in this, it’s bad.
Y’all need to go back to the 80’s and see how GOOD movies are made.
He’s angry, but I’ve seen…
Oh how I rarely reblog, but sometimes it is necessary.
Let me explain what you missed about my post, but I will point out that you state “Man of Steel” is one of your favorite movies. You are also 22 years old.
While I’ve got 11 years of age on you, I also have “Film Studies” under my belt for college classes. Looking at what makes a good movie are several key variables.
First though, I’ll address General Zod. I didn’t say he ONLY displays anger. I said he’s” displaying” anger, but that it was weak. I’ve seen a 7yr old child put more passion into his angry face than Michael Shannon does in his performance. It isn’t believable that he’s furious. A little annoyed, perhaps, but not much. Hayden Christianson displayed a better “anger” range in Episode 3, and that’s saying something.
A blind person would not be able to differentiate his “anger” for “mildly perturbed and ranting” because not only does his face remain a nearly impassive mask, his voice, volume, timbre, and delivery are all lacking in emotion. Which would be fine if he was being emotionless, but he’s not, he’s supposed to be angry. Daring them to kill him themselves.
While I may be a child if the 80’s, and watched some of the best movies ever made, there are movies made recently that do a much better job as well.
CGI and gore DO NOT MAKE A GOOD MOVIE. General public seems to have forgotten this.
Alien was scary as hell… The Thing (1982) had you on the edge of your seat… yet you barely saw the alien.
Plot, acting, directing… these make good movies.
So, check yourself before telling ME that I don’t know what makes a good movie. People like shitty movies all the time, and heaven forbid the few voices who oppose the popularity. Perhaps it’s YOU who doesn’t know what makes a good movie, child.
