Go see the Man of Steel! It's Awesome!!!!!!!

Henry Cavill- an Amazing Superman!
We saw "Man of Steel" yesterday, and in my opinion, as a superhero fan for more than 40 years - Henry Cavill is the perfect Superman. The director really captured the humanity of the character, and the emotional bonds he has with his Earth parents, the Kents, and his Krypton parents. The scenes of the young Clark Kent being bullied choked me up. He held back doing anything to his tormentors and stood his ground. In one of the first appearances of Clark, he does get back at an adult bully is a fun way.

   The LA Times said in an article: Henry Cavill trained hard. For five months before filming began, and continuously during the six-month shoot, working to turn his body into something more powerful than a locomotive, a physical specimen that looks like the work of computer enhancements but isn’t.

Amy Adams made the perfect Lois Lane- determined, gritty, impulsive and fearless. General Zod and Faora-Ul were convincingly evil. I thought Russell Crowe did a great job as Jor-El, too.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
