Smashing Return

Creative Mind Times 10
  • The first Superman movie in seven years is already on its way to becoming the highest-grossing film featuring Clark Kent. "Superman Returns" started with $52.5 million in its opening weekend and went on to collect $200.1 million in the U.S. and Canada — just over 50% of the movie's final $391.1 million global tally. - Box Office

You would have to know me to understand how creative and wild my imagination can get.  We finally went to see the Man of Steel, which is where the outcome was, creative mind times 10.  While I am creative I don’t like to overplay the massive explosions, destroying the city even if characters fighting, all have super powers.  Before I forget one of the most amazing things about this particular theater attendance, not surprising but definitely amazing; when the movie was over and we left the auditorium I was in a crowd of Baby Boomers, just as I pictured I would be.
I once said that if I was in charge of marketing for the Super Heroes’ movies I would show a bunch of Baby Boomers buying tickets going in, and a bunch of 8 to 13 year olds walking out wearing the same clothes as the Boomers buying the tickets.  The whole crowd was discussing the movie plot on the way out. You could feel the level of satisfaction of seeing a well done movie, pretty much the way we imagined it.  The loud explosions and high Dolby volume was probably spot on for all those Boomers that are hard of hearing anyway.
There were some low level (whispers) commentaries going on during the movie.  I know, I leaned over and explained to my wife, how the Kryptonite affects Superman, and where it comes from.  I also explained the other main characters in the storyline, such as Lois Lane, the Kent’s (adoptive parents), Perry White, etc.  Another amazing thing is how they managed to get so much of today news events into the plot, NSA type surveillance, use of drones, dis-trust for government, Internet, spying and traitors, etc.  Man of Steel definitely gets “two thumbs up from me!” There is rumor that the sequel has already been agreed to.  The best is yet to come….

  1. In this time, we need more superheros, it sort of jumpstarts people into doing something about things they hold dear to their hearts. GOD, family, country.....and so on. The movie (or movies), tell us we can make a differance. Maybe not as superheros, but the premis is still the same.
