With superhero movies being produced one after the other, film makers may be pressured into bringing something new to the table. Because even though superhero movies are packed with action and the characters are loved by many, there is a tendency for them to get old and be labelled as ‘just another superhero action movie’.
Maybe this is the reason why 2013’s Man of Steel have received critiques when it comes to the significant deviations of the film to the classic character of Superman movies. One of the most notable aspects that received a bit of a ‘spiced-up’ was its color spectrum. This is similar to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, where director Zach Snyder decided to use unsaturated and subdued tones. It was an interesting twist to Man of Steel, which has always been regarded as the bright and ever lively superhero movie.
We found a video from VideoLab featuring the color changes that had been made to the movie. It was a cool comparison and we can’t decide which is better – the original or the restored version?
Help us pick the better rendition, watch the video here:
Lots of work still needs to be done after shooting the actors on the set. The post-production team has to edit a whole lot and make sure that the film becomes an incredible experience for moviegoers to enjoy. And while some praised the comparison made, the video also gathered a handful of comments from critics. Keith Michell of Cinematic Ramblings wondered if the changes made by VideoLab was accurate. VideoLab has this to say:
“We’re video editors and motion graphics designers, not professional film colorists. We stand by the editing, graphics, & points we make as being pretty solid for something that largely came together in a couple days. However, we won’t defend the color grading because we know it isn’t good. We’re amateur colorists and it’s impossible to put back color once it’s gone. It’s just an approximation. Plus, a film isn’t just a collection of pretty shots, it’s is a 2-hour experience and decisions like tone & color grading should only be considered in that context…
“Don’t mistake a goofy entertainment video for something more. It’s a silly and slightly misleading opinion piece that’s being analyzed through a lens of legitimacy it does not deserve or warrant. The fact that this video is so popular should serve as a testament to Man of Steel, not to us.”
Meanwhile, let’s take a look at more photos:
Which color spectrum is better?
The color changes made are indeed remarkable!
What do you Think? Should Superman Fly Blue or Gray Skies?
Do you think these color modifications can suit the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie? Let us know in the comment box below and share this post to your family and friends too!
This Clever Dog Might Have Better Toilet Etiquette Than Some People You Know
When it comes to right manners and etiquette, count this dog to deliver!
Taking care of dogs can be quite a challenge, especially for busy people who have day jobs and a family to take care of. There are times when friends start calling for a Friday dinner catch-up at 7 pm, but unfortunately, you have to decline because your dog still hasn't 'released' it yet.
This is why we were so amazed when we saw this video. It features Baron, a German Shepherd, who is probably the most clever and prim dog we have ever seen. We wanted to meet the owner as we think he/ she deserves a pat in the back for being able to train a dog this well.

Her Dad Bet She Won’t Hit the Highest Note, But What She Did is Even More Phenomenal!
You’d want to hear her sing over and over again.
I can't believe that "The Star Spangled Banner" would play in like an earworm in my head. That's how great 11-year old Lexi Walker's voice is. This pretty, little 7th grader from Cottonwood Heights, Utah sang the National Anthem at the Real Salt Lake Soccer game like she was auditioning for American Idol or The Voice. Her angelic voice matched her looks, but her rendition is so powerful and dynamic that she already sounded like a pro! The crowd cheered in awe of her vocal prowess, which also ignited the crowd's passion and excitement for the game.
An angelic face with an angelic voice
Before her performance, Lexi's dad teased her into a wager. Her dad bet that she won't be able to hit the highest note in the anthem. Guess what? Lexi won. And not only that, this little girl even raised the note like an octave higher! It's amazing to see Lexi and hear her sing because despite the range of the song, she sang it effortlessly. Her electrifying voice paved the way for her next stints and TV guestings. She was invited to sing the National Anthem again, but this time at the NFL and NBA games. She also appeared at America's Got Talent, The Queen Latifah show, and Good Morning America. Her cover of the song "Let It Go" has received almost 55 million hits on YouTube....
Here’s How Your Favorite “GOT” Characters Look Like in the Book Versus on TV.
We’re wondering what happened to Tyrion Lannister’s nose?
With the epic comeback of “Game of Thrones”, thronies all over the world can’t seem to get enough of their favourite characters in the award-winning HBO series. Ever wonder how your favorite GOT characters look like as envisioned by George R.R. Martin in his books?
One fanatic of the fantasy saga took time to create portraits of the characters based on the detailed description written by Martin in his best-selling novels. HBO did a pretty good job since some of the cast members of the epic series are pretty much doppelgängers of their fictional counterpart. Still, some look completely different. Nevertheless, we think the actors in the critically-acclaimed series nailed their characters.
