No care in the World to develop that idea further and make it more complex.

And damn that was one disappointing exo-skelleton! From the trailers I thought Damon was gonna become the Six Million Dollar Man and in the movie, he was barely capable of ripping off a car door!
You hit it pretty well on the head. I felt the plot was like just one step after the other, nothing subtle or intricate at all. This has to happen so here is why, I swear after about 20mins the end had already been laid out.

I just watched superman and after seeing snyder had directed it I had high hopes, god what a piece of crap. I can't wait for this superhero/comic book fad to die out.

Here I go again on my high clown horse but really if you don't know Berserk you must check it out because you missed a piece of art. Download the english manga or watch the show even though it's old.

I missed about half a decade worth of anime watching and apparently there are also 3 films now with rave reviews.
Berserk was alright, first episode was by far the best and the rest had a lot of filler. I never read the comics but damn did I want more after seeing that first episode. If you want to see possibly the greatest anime series I have ever seen go watch Samurai Champloo. FLCL is a pretty fun ride too.
