Out of the Blue

I'm one of those who has been using Google Reader for a long time now, but apparently there aren't enough of us, as the big G is deep-sixing the RSS reader at the end of this month. I haven't been successful in finding a replacement, so I thought I'd ask here if anyone had any recommendations for a good RSS reader. I realize this is very 2000s of me, but some of us are stuck in their ways. Thanks for any help with this.

Saw Man of Steel yesterday. Liked it more than the Avengers or the last Batman flick. Hell, I liked it better than the last Star Trek, although the movie has a lot of flaws. It seems to cater to the lowest common denominator a lot and I mean A LOT in quite a few scenes. Quite a lot of scenes are superflous and should have been cut from the film.

The best part of the film is the origin story, not in the least because it finally explains who and what the Kryptonians were and how Superman fits in with what happened.

Henry Cavill is charismatic and engaging as Superman although his Clark Kent persona is rather well, undeveloped. This is a fault with the story really, not the actors.

Zod really steals the show, best one dimensional character I have ever seen. Trust me the sentence makes sense in the context of the movie.

Reeves is still No. 1 IMO but the new movie is well worth the ticket admission price.

Hey Thanks InBlack. I was really looking forward to it, until the reviews started coming in. Now I'll go check it out. I liked Oblivion better than either Iron Man 3 or Star Trek 2, so maybe this is the year where my tastes are the opposite of the critical consensus. Just trying to avoid another Prometheus. The disappointment of that movie still lingers like a wound that has scarred over but still twinges.
