Superhero Movies: Iron Man 3 vs Man of Steel| Backup/Copy DVD Tips

Iron Man 3

Iron-Man-3-Spoilers.jpg

Strengths: Iron Man 3 was of course buoyed by the massive success of The Avengers – but having star Robert Downey Jr. (the most bankable face in the Marvel Studios brand) front and center certainly didn’t hurt prospects. Iron Man 3was definitely a big, thick, slice of summer fun, with Marvel Studios getting a little bit more generous with the budget and more bold with their filmmaking, allowing a great deal of creative control to rest in the hands of director Shane Black. The result was a Marvel movie that was a departure from the formulaic films of “Phase One,” an experiment that resulted in a huge pile of box office earnings.

Weaknesses: Iron Man 3 was a bit “out there” for a lot of viewers; Shane Black’s approach to the material – and the BIG liberties he took with the mythos and characters – didn’t fit within the range of a lot of people’s expectations for a “superhero movie.” Some view that as the film’s greatest asset; but just as many others feel like Marvel Phase Two started off on a bad foot, as did the entire 2013 summer superhero movie season.

Man of Steel

Man-of-Steel-Suit.jpg

Strengths: Man of Steel was tasked with re-introducing Superman on film to a whole new (and very different) generation than those raised on the Richard Donner classic. All debate about the movie’s quality aside, director Zack Snyder and star Henry Cavill at least managed to accomplish that lofty goal, and for better or worse, there is a new Superman in town. In addition, Man of Steel featured some of the best super-powered action ever put to screen, and with a Batman vs. Superman sequel on the way, this property has never been hotter.

Weaknesses: Man of Steel was a pretty divisive film amongst fans and critics alike, and didn’t reach the billion-dollar stratosphere of Iron Man 3. Some tag the new Superman and his world as clunky and joyless – and Supes did admittedly cause a TON of collateral damage to populated areas before snapping General Zod’s neck. MoS was a grittier, more somber and rougher vision of the classic character – and for a lot of fans, that was a deal-breaker.

Go through Handbrake forum and find more than one guys complained the Handbrake subtitle issues. Of course, some possible solutions are suggested by tech supporters.

Solution 1: If you want it as softsubs (as opposed to subs that are hardcoded into the video and can’t be changed), you can convert the MKV file to MP4 first, then use Subler to add the .srt file.

I’ve tried the solution, but it’s a bit complex and time-consuming, the final video is not so satisfactory.
