Man of Steel Was Fantastic!

.... But the customer service and movie-going experience was terrible. I can legit say that since the time I've been going to movies, I've had cause to complain once about a terrible movie-going experience and that happened when I was kid. It's kind of hard to enjoy your movie when it literally tears and breaks during the showing. As a child, I cried. Today, I did not cry but it is incredibly frustrating to have your enjoyment of a movie get interrupted--twice!--by the picture and sound cutting out. At the beginning just before the previews, the audience was subjected to the AMC Ritz cracker-esque character thingy 6 - 8 times before the picture decided to move on to the actual previews only to have the screen flash green several times and go black. It was a great thing there was no one epileptic in the audience cuz then there would a serious problem on the theaters hands, but I digress.

So, we're subjected to a long stretch of black nothingness before the picture finally comes back and plays the previews. Everything's great now, previews have been played, the movie is playing. I get to see Henry Cavill sport a sexy Man Beard and show off his Extremely Attractive and Sweaty Torso at one point and I'll be honest. I've always been a Batman girl, but sweet Jesus, Cavill has really tempted me to start considering picking up a Superman comicbook one of these days. And I know, I'm objectifying him and shit, but come on... he's really attractive, okay? Let's not forget how he looks in the uniform and the awesome ass-kicking he was doing... until the picture gets interrupted again!

This time, the screen goes black with no warning but the sound is still playing so the bestie and I are like, "OMG NOOOOO, WHAT IS GOING ON? WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE MOVIE!?" So, at this point, I need to add that when this interruption of the picture first occurred, one or two members of the audience got up to go, I imagine, complain. This time? A TON of people got up to go complain--and rightfully so!--but the bestie and I stubbornly stayed in our seats because, damn it! We paid $10.25 to see this movie and we were going to see it to the end unless the staff was going to kick us out for technical difficulties. By this time, both picture and sound had been lost but eventually returned in time to see that Superman had saved a bunch of people. Cuz Superman is cool like that, even if AMC was not today and you can bet your ass the bestie and I complained and ended up getting a guest pass for our next movie-going experience.

I am not a big superman fan but I have been seeing the previews for the movie and it looks amazing.

Thats sucks the movie was messed up I never had that happen to me before at least they gave you a guest pass for your next movie.
