@VariablePenguin I thought that was because Krypton was imploding? Or the Steadycam operator was drunk.
@TheJonesCode Ouch. That's a helluva headache considering he was thrown through a good 30-40 buildings, killing God knows how many.
Why do I have a headache? I didn't even watch the fake 3D version of Man of Steel. Speaking of which, what's with the fake 3D resurgence?
@WatchMeMakeStuf Goes bad. Sorry I'm been watching too much Gordon Ramsey Yells At Kitchens shows on Netflix.
The 1980 Zod fights were more interesting because without $200 mil of CGI, they had to be more inventive. Snake murder!
Power is out this morning. Hope my chicken doesn't go off. Going to see Superman of steel in a bit.
