I went to watch Man of Steel (2013) by myself.

I thought some of the visuals were pretty nice in the beginning.

But I fell asleep towards the end because the movie was quite soporific. I have never slept in a cinema before. The continuous roar of destruction without any kind of emotional investment was like a lullaby. I couldn’t keep my eyes open.


Antonym: stimulating

Adverb: soporifically
