Nice shots, xage. I might have done the same thing if WB had brightened the colors a tad bit for this re-design of Superman.

Re: Man Of Steel

I take back what I said earlier about the film's palate.
Still not a huge fan of the over-processed look, but on the whole the film looks incredible.

That feature was actually interesting in seeing how they physically changed. Michael Shannon had some skinny ass white boy legs in there.

Talking about legs, in one of the features about playing the characters it shows Adams doing her thing. Seems like she's a blast to have around. She's got some sexy sexy calves too. Nice.

It can't get no righter!

She's always been fit, though. She was hot as hell in Pandorum, too.

That's the first time I saw her and was instantly smitten.

Re: Man Of Steel

Just finished the Making of Man of Steel featurette, which is essentially Maximum Movie Mode. It's fantastic. Probably one of the best ones I've watched. Lots of great information and it feels really interactive. Practically every member of the cast and crew participated. There was really no dead spots, they always had new on camera introductions and spliced in interviews/behind the scenes footage.

Re: Man Of Steel

I wasn't really amazed by that. It was mediocre for the most part. No real depth of information. Some interesting bits with production stuff but still light.

Re: Man Of Steel

How was the 3D version of this? Worth it? Trying to figure out if it's worth keeping the LE for $25 or taking it back and picking up the regular edition for $10.

It's okay, but it is an upconvert - about as good as any of the Marvel movies in 3D. Nothing in the "must-have" realm though. You're not missing anything with the 2D version, IMO.

Probably. I can't confirm those exactly but most of the retailer-exclusive bonus features end up on YouTube.
