    Default Superman Returns

    ...

    Bryan Singer mus be one of the best directors out there to make a crappy character like Superman work so well in such a good film. honestly i think that the guy that played Superman (Brandon Routh) was so thin and weird it wouldnt work but somehow Bryan did it. not only is the script awesome and Kevin Spacey the most kick ass bad-guy since i dunno when but it has a NOOB doing an EXCELLENT job playing the single GAYEST bastard superhero EVER!!! even if you hate superman (like me) and you wish he would die, go see this movie just because of Lex and the screaming fanboys that will swear up and down that Lois's sickly 5 year old son is Superboy or something... since in the movie Superman left FIVE years ago ... HMMMMMMM!!!!

    i had the pleasure of watching it last night at 10 when it premiered in NYC and it was the best three hours ive had in a long time. Sure it earned 4 stars from The Daily News in the same way King Kong did (by being a pseudo remake of a near perfect classic) it doesnt ever come off as cheesy or lame but is actually pretty funny. never mind this Superman is unrealisticly strong (even by Superman standards hes a little too strong) ... i mean kinda like strong when say... lois died in the comic book and Superman flew around the world so fast he reversed Earths spin somehow reversing time to back when he could save her from death kind of strong.... yeah.

    go watch it. now. it actually DOES'NT suck!

    SD says 3.5 outta 4


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Well you know super mans speed is measured by how fast the flash can run so if the Flash can transend time so can super man. Also, go read www.pvponline.com now ....you will enjoy what Scott has to say.

    those are just discriptions Flash... Superman is way faster than a speeding bullet both of them are capable of reaching and passing the speed of light.

    Actually that's just what they use in the old comic's and yes he's faster than sound and eventually he becomes faster than light. Superman's powers are very vauge. And every time he races with the flash it ends up in a tie. So, in reality supermans speed is slightly less than or equal to how fast the flash can run.

    Who cares if Flash is faster?
    Flash doesn't have his own movie franchise.

    He is getting a movie in 2-3 years, as is Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the extremely awesome Green Lantern (the Flash and Green Lantern movies are all I'm really excited about). They are just using the proceeds from these movies to fund these other movies and also fund ad campaigns about them since none of these heroes are exactly popular =/ (even though they seriously should be).

    Okay, lets educate here...Superman Returns was AMAZING, but Superman is the origninal article, and I would have to say, in terms of development, he is still one of the best. I'm not even judging on strength, speed, or super powers, I'm talking about character. Real and true to life character. He represents the American dream: a foreigner rising to the ranks of "legend" or "god" using his own unique skills and talents. Mind you these talents are incredible, but none the less, it is still a principle that lives on to this day. Lets move on to weaknesses, past the kryptonite and magic, does he have any? YES. Lets say someone has a gun pointed at you and your girlfriend is standing next to you...now you are encased in inpenitrable armor, who is the person with the gun going to shoot? Now you might say "but he has super speed", well imagine that this is the conflict that you go through every day. Some random super-villain finds out that you have the hots for a girl and kills her while you are off saving people from a burning building.

    I don't like people who say they like Spiderman and not Superman, as Spiderman IS just Superman with a revamped story and toned down powers. C'mon, red and blue costume, super strength, super agility, heightened endurance, "spider sense" (super hearing and super vision combined into one and turned into precognition). Now lets look at their stories: "Oh no, Uncle Ben died because of my actions" "Holy shit I never knew until I was 10 that I am in fact an alien and my entire race was killed off and I am basically completely alone on this planet.". Which story sounds more compelling to you? Yeah, I thought so. Plenty of people have written Superman well, its just that Marvel got to the interesting stuff on Spiderman first in terms of writing their comics. People are just have too much of a bias on Superman because "he seems like he is all powerful" or "he has no flaws". Superman has plenty of interesting character flaws and is in fact not all powerful. Just pick up a Superman comic every once and a while before you make irrational generalizations.

    Also, I would have to say that the greatest comic or series of comics ever made is called Kingdom Come, check it the **** out, seriously. Alex Ross has to be one of the best, if not the best artist I have ever seen.

    I dislike both Spiderman and Superman. Superman is a corny, too perfect unrealistic(even without all those powers) and Spiderman is like a soap opera.
    but, yes, i will be seeing this movie.

    I love Steal! <3
