Hi Movie watchers,
I had an opportunity to watch the new Superman: Man of Tomorrow movie today. I enjoyed it and if you are a fan of DC Animated movies, like I am, I think you will too. Yes, It is sort of an origin story as you probably already know and have heard it all before, but before you dismiss it, I want to appeal to you that it is more than just that.
Trying not to reveal too much, I gotta say a couple of things that stood out to me.
- This is one of my favorite renditions of Lois Lane (a younger Lois Lane)
- Who doesn’t like seeing the “Main Man”, Lobo, and all his antics
- This movie is about the fear of revealing who you are
Knowing that the only difference that matters is what is in your heart.
Superman is different. Let’s face it, we are all different in one way or another. That’s a given, by law of nature and of nurture. No two are the same. Far too many times we hide those differences for fear of how we may be viewed. I think you will find in this movie even Superman had this fear along with some other characters too.
Leave it to Ma and Pa to have instilled in Clark that there are only two choices when facing fears.
Quote from movie:
"Either meet it head on and face the consequences, or you keep your head down and face the consequences. There’s no wrong choice… "
“But you have to make one.”
I hope you get a chance to see this movie soon, and if you do, I’d like hear what you think about it.
P.S. This is my first ever topic created. I’ll take whatever constructive criticisms you have.
