I saw Man of Steel and This is the End recently. This is the End was even funnier than I thought it'd be. It's rare to see a comedy these days that's actually got a bit of effort and talent put into it… (See Hangover Part 3 ) And for Man of Steel, I really don't see why the critics hated it that much. Every criticism is just nitpicks really. It has the BEST action scenes in ANY superhero movie, it's fast paced, the actors are all good, and I really liked the dark tone and sci-fi elements that were in the beginning of the movie. Money well spent.
