I usually get all my blu rays through Amazon Prime. A little over $24 including tax when all is said and done. I read about the special features on Bluray.coms review, and it's not all that impressive.

Since so much has been said on here already about MOS, I'll just say that me and the fam watched the blu ray this evening. I loved it, wife loved it, grand kids loved it. I put it right up there with Supes I and II. Bring on Batman vs. Superman.

The thing I like about this Superman?

General - "That's a $12 million dollar satellite!!!!" (after Supes intentionally crashes a U.S. satellite right in front of the General's car)

Superman - "It was."

I'm sorry. It may not mean much. But this version of Supes has a little "edge" to him. And it's just something I don't think the previous versions of Supes would do or say.

I've seen a fairly big deal made of that scene (usually on the negative side, though: "WTF?!?! Why is the Soupermans destroying stuff and being a jerck about it?!:!1")

and I just think the only purpose it serves is to try to answer the cynics who might say things like "Why wouldn't the US just spy on him to find out who he is?"

My updated review of the movie:
After 2 hrs and 13 minutes of pre-title sequence, the movie gets rolling with some bombastic music while the credits play. Then the Superman logo appears and the movie is over.
:lol:

I kid, of course.
During my most recent re-watch of this movie I was struck by how little I agree with those who say it does something wrong with Superman. Here's this guy, who's thrown into a world that is ugly, and cynical, and absolutely filled with liars and horrible people (basically, 2013 Planet Earth), and despite every single person in his life feeding him lines and lying to him and trying to force his hand and make him do this or that, he carves his own way and you can see that deep-down he always knew what that way was going to be. He was always going to help people and could never sit idly by while the innocent or weak were threatened or harmed. He was only given pause as to his exact course because both of his fathers thrust a burden upon him that he was never quite prepared for: Jor-El with the fate of the entire Kryptonian race, and Pa Kent with the decision to hold back the use of his powers until he deemed people were "ready".

He really does become the lone beacon of hope in an ugly, horrible, cynical world, and it's done in such a way as to not be campy or corny or sound like Superman is either just feeding humanity lines or acting superior.

There are a couple of things I wish were done differently that would have helped my opinion of the movie greatly (and these are just LITTLE things that would have made a BIG difference in my mind):
-Having Jor-El get the upper hand on Zod for a second in order to get the launch of the ship done is okay, Jor El has a weapon and Zod is unarmed, but having Jor El beat the piss out of Zod irritates me and makes all the stuff about Zod being trained as a warrior from birth seem a little hollow.
-The lazer-beam standoff at the end...very little change, but I'd have put one of the characters we've actually seen in the movie in the line of fire there. It doesn't have to be Lois, but that would be my preference, giving Superman even more reason to do what he does because even though he loves humanity and has adopted us as his own, he is IN LOVE with Lois, and couldn't bear to see her come to harm. But yeah, just ANY character we've met previously in the film so that we, the audience, can care a little bit if they die.

Those two little changes could be applied to the film almost exactly as is and the entire thing would play a lot better for me. Then, a bigger change, in getting rid of the tornado scene and changing it to the traditional heart-attack, would make it a near-perfect film that just plays a touch on the lengthy side and could be trimmed here or there for better pacing.

As-is, I find it to be a low-end 4 outta 5. It's not as good as any of the Nolan Bat films, but it might be my next favorite superhero movie after that. Maybe Avengers...

This movie is one of the MAJOR reasons I will remain optimistic about the DC film universe despite what I hear; I hated so much of the news and rumors swirling around this film and then loved it. I remain hopeful that with at least the creative vision from its producers in tact, we continue to see a universe expand in further compelling films.

New game:

what would be worse- having to read all 46 pages of this thread, or wath the 2 schmucks from Nostalgia critic for almost an hour! Why people cant just watch the film and form their own opinion is beyond me.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Once I see a movie I never thought twice, I usually never make it a habit to view it a second time. Well, in visiting with family today, I had a chance to see this thing again. And it ended up with the same results. I've stated in the past that I am not a comic book aficionado. I am a movie fan so I'm looking at it strictly on its film merits. While MOS was very nice looking, it never afforded a time (especially in the second half) to catch your breath! In the end this was still a **1/2 film.
