Re: I've seen Superman Returns


Just got back from the theater for an early viewing of the movie. The movie was BADA$$!! My only warning is please do not go in watching this movie with tooo much expectations. The story is very different and has lil surprise in store for you. It's interesting but in a good way. Believe me, it even got me a lil teary eyed in the end but that's just probably cause i got a soft side when it comes to sappy scenes. :embarassed Overall like SC said, you might not end up LOVING it but i'm sure you'll atleast like it. I think Singer did a pretty good job with it. I'd see it again. :up

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


I have to say I LOVED it. I really did. It was a long film but I didnt even feel how long it was, the only one in the theater who did was the 5 year old boy two seats over from me who didnt know who Superman was. My wife loved this movie as well. It is not a Chick flick, it is SUPERMAN!! and that is it. It focuses on Lex, Superman and Lois, very well I might add. I laughed I cried, I wanted another half hour or more!

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


My supervisor went to see it last night. He was blown away. (His words.) He has raved all morning about it. And he's not a "chick flick" guy. He wants me to see it this weekend so we can talk about it Monday. I probably won't get the chance, but it's nice to know someone enjoyed it.

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


I saw it last night. I enjoyed it and I can't wait to see it again.

The opening sequence was one of the best opening movie sequences I've ever seen. Like a million times better than Star Wars.

I agree though, that there was a lot more stuff of Clark at the farm and in Metropolis that was in trailers and even in the novel but not in the movie. There was even a whole subplot involving Martha Kent that was left out. They probably felt they needed to "cut to the chase" and get to the action.

I can't wait to see it again, both in normal format and in IMAX (I was supposed to see it in IMAX last night, but I got to the theater late)

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


LOVED IT!!!! The special effects were unblievably breath-taking, Brandon played both roles perfectly, Spacey was an AMAZING Lex, and the supporting cast did a great job. This was definately a breath of fresh air in regards to superhero movies. I loved the references to the Reeve movies and was blown away by Brandon's likeness to the late actor. THIS MOVIE ROCKED!!!! I will be seeing it many many more times! Thank you Bryan Singer!

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


I really enjoyed it. That scene with the plane alone is worth the price of admission, and much like Spider-Man swinging through New York, I could watch a couple of hours of Superman just flying around. It's breathtaking.

I have one gripe, which I present here in invisotext:

Spacey's plan was no more inspired than Hackman's. He gets his hands on tech that can make him the most powerful ruler on earth, and all he can think of is the value of Kryptonian real estate.

I also have at least one thing I was surprised about, also presented in invisotext:

Despite the obligatory question of Jason's lineage, I didn't truly expect him to be Superman's kid. I think it's a bold move to diverge from the comics to that extent, and I applaud Singer for it. Also surprised that Lois and Superman don't end up together despite this knowledge.

Re: I've seen Superman Returns



   I can tell you know-- after seeing the movie a second time, I enjoyed it a lot more. I was watching with a less critical eye, and take it all in. There are still a couple holes, but I wouldn't mind seeing this movie a 3rd time.

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


I can say this: as NOBODY was chatting about this movie where I could access it, as WB said friggin LITTLE about what this movie's story was over the months, I HAD to go see it to know SQUAT!

I liked it but I tell you that had I known what this movie was going to be about, I would've waited to RENT the DVD! I buy lots of dvds at that.

I never knew wether the movie only refernced the Chris Reeve movies via a homage or if it was in fact a sequel. Well, it's a sequel to part two period.

  I think having a totally different costume for Routh as he's supposed to be literally Chris was dumb, should've been a replica costume of Chris's.

 BTW, I was told it cost 260 million to make this movie. No way even the global box office will be enough to make the movie a solid success.

Re: I've seen Superman Returns


i watched superman returns today and i was unimpressed. Perhaps my thoughts on the film were initially corrupted by my disdain for the character... at least richard donner's version of the character, the know-it-all boy scout. GOD I HATE HIM. HE'S THE ANTI-BATMAN.

There was hardly a conflict between the hero and the villain until the very end. ???! c'mon, a three hour movie and superman is oblivious to the villain's plot and even the acknowledgement that there is a villain until near the end of the film?! There was hardly a plot, and what was a plot was rehashed storylines from the other films. what did he do the first part of the film, go around stopping random crimes? oh yeah. thats right. he did. the supposed twists in the story were unbearably cliche and predictable. OMG! is superman going to die? OMG, is that his kid? OMG! will they get out of that watery grave? and talk about cheap music. they didn't even hire a composer. it was the same Williams song for every !@#$ action sequence. oh, yeah: Lex Luthor again? Don't do someone that's been done before. Don't do General Zod or Bizzaro.

There were some good parts of the film though. Jimmy !@#$ Olsen for one. Thumbs up to the actor who played him. The way he bit into that burrito? best acting in the film. The opening sequence was great because they recreated the type of opening from the first movie. and i enjoyed that they acknowledged the existance of Gotham City in their world. Oh, and don't forget Kumar. Kumar was probably the only character i actually cared for while watching this film. i was rooting for him and hoping he didn't die. too bad he did. The boy will never go to White Castle now.
