He couldn’t believe it. Might this forgotten starship actually hold the answers he’d been searching for all his life? Was he finally about to discover the truth about his past — where he came from? You have another father, his father had told him. Another name. At long last, the truth seemed within reach.

Clark didn’t know whether to be thrilled or terrified.

Maybe a little bit of both.

My Thoughts On the Bashing of Man of Steel and Films in General

I am so tired of seeing so many arguments about Man of Steel on this site. After witnessing all of these I have come to a conclusion. You can like a film, and you can dislike a film. I loved Man of Steel, it was one of my favorite movies last year. Yes it had its flaws and there are some things…

Except most of those people who complain about the movie make stupid and brain dead complaints. I don’t care whether they feel insulted or not I’m really tired of hearing these people’s constant bullshit.

Then you’re missing the whole point of what I just said. You can’t force a person to like or dislike something just because you want them to. Even if you think the reason they don’t like the movie are stupid, there’s nothing you can do to change how they feel. Arguing does nothing. You just have to accept the fact that not everyone loves Man of Steel. And trying to force your opinion on them does nothing

I’m not forcing my opinion on anyone. I just point out how ridiculous their complaints are and how they no sense.

Then thats how YOU feel. Even if their argument is invalid, what’s the point of trying to prove them wrong? Don’t get me wrong I love Man of Steel. Best Superman movie yet. But at the same time I recognize its flaws. While I may not agree with a lot of the problems people have with it, I respect their opinions because thats how they feel about it. Calling a person names and insulting them for not liking a movie or telling them their reasons are stupid is just not productive. It’s also immature. 

No it’s not the truth of what actually happens in the movie, supes actually saves people, hardly causes any damage himself, etc.

I’m not saying that those things aren’t true, but if people don’t see it the same way then you can’t argue with them just because they’re wrong. Don’t you see what I’m trying to say?

I really don’t care I’m still gonna point out how ridiculous their bullshit is. It’s really annoying to hear all these idiots bitch about the movie.

Then there’s nothing more for me to say. If you wanna keep arguing with people all the time then go ahead. 

Here’s the thing though.  You’re right that resulting to insults is pointless and immature, but generally there are some major points that MoS fans argue against when it comes to MoS related hate:

1. People making completely false observations about the movie

Things like “Superman destroyed Metropolis” or “He broods throughout the whole movie” etc.  These are false and whether you like it or not, we’re gonna call out claims that are just NOT TRUE.

2. Hypocrisy.

Whether it’s between DC vs Marvel (seriously, the Marvel body count is astronomical) or between MoS and the Donner films.  There are things fans will allow in one movie but blast when it comes to MoS.  And yes that’s their opinion, but again, it’s based somewhat on falsehoods or revisionist history.  We’re gonna call that shit out, sorry.

Also, this fandom, in addition to the beautiful gifsets and other fanart, thrives on the meta.  All of these things actually contribute to the meta because there are criticisms of the film that I’ve seen turn into the most gorgeous commentary in any fandom I belong to.  Which means they are, by definition, not pointless.

So, no, we’re not gonna stop the debates even though we absolutely should conduct ourselves as adults and not resort to namecalling

Sarcasm is completely fair game though.

(*the gif I was looking for but couldn’t find was “That was a $12M piece of equipment!” “It was.”)
(**bonus points cuz everyone in every theater I saw this in laughed)
Also, “to brood” is literally to think about something that makes one sad and Clark/Kal did that 4 times in the whole movie and all of those times were about things that happened in his childhood.  ”Not smiling for 100% of the movie” does not equal “brooding”.  ”Not having a witty retort for every situation no matter how inappropriate” does not equal “no humor”.
