Man Of Steel Sucks” is certainly not what Legendary Pictures Financing LLC or Warner Bros want to see as one of the most popular search terms associated with what’s supposed to be one of their tent-pole movies, but sure enough, on Twitter, as of this writing at 4:52 PM EDT on Saturday, June 15th, that’s exactly the case.

UPDATE: MAN OF STEEL SETS JUNE BOX OFFICE RECORD!

The finding by this blogger, who was in the process of searching for Man Of Steel-related tweets, does not spell good news for the movie’s box office performance potential.

Personally, I don’t think “Man Of Steel Sucks,” in fact, I think it’s a great movie that was missing a couple of elements. Here’s my video-based review from Zennie62 on YouTube:

Twitter Search Reveals Content As Much As Volume Of Search Requests

Like most keyword search engines, Twitter’s is a combination of what people are searching for, and what keywords are in the content. The sad fact is that the more Twitter account holders write “Man Of Steel Sucks” the more likely it is to appear near the top of search results, and in turn, other click on that, creating a vicious cycle that can only be broken with new content.

Here’s what some people are tweeting under “Man Of Steel Sucks”

What’s The Problem With Man Of Steel?

So just what is the problem with Man Of Steel?

The overall major error is in the overuse of flashbacks. There are so many of them that it renders it difficult to really sink your teeth into the movie. For example, we go from the baby Kar-El crash landing on Earth, to the deep ocean, where an older Clark is working on some kind of fishing vessel. When the water craft comes upon an oil rig in flames, Clark is next on it, and putting his super-powers to work.

Left unconscious and floating in the water, Clark then makes it back to land, grabs some clothes off a clothesline, then walking through town, sees a schoolbus that takes us to yet another flashback.

So we don’t see how Clark grew up in such a way as to own some part of the story that then takes us through to a plot point – you have to pay attention and think about the story, and that can lose a lot of people.

The other problem is that John Williams’ masterful theme is not anywhere near the film and there’s no good reason for that decision. Look, what Mr. Williams created is an acknowledged classic – avoiding its use for a Superman movie was just plain stupid.

With that, I don’t think Man Of Steel sucks, but some others do.

I’ll see it again.

And the reason I will is that it’s special effects are the best ever. There are a ton of scenes worth seeing again just because they look so real in terms of depth of field in 3D.

Stay tuned.
