Superman Returns

Recommended Posts

darthYENIK

I noticed there was no topic about this movie here. Is there no interest? Even I have little interest. But I felt like I needed to get my feelings off my chest.

 

Am I the only one that thinks that they had no reason to revisit how superman came to be? I mean. Couldn't they just make a new movie, without smallville, or superman discovering his powers, or Lex Luthor. Although Kevin Spacey was a great choice. But couldn't they just make movies with a new cast, like they've done so many times with james bond. And what the f*ck is up with the use of Marlon Brando from the 78' version? I also see this as the reason X3 sucked, since Brian Singer left to make it.

That's so true, if I had the chance to beat Superman up or Bin Larden. It would be Superman, well not really... But you know what I mean. ph34r.gif

Apprantly famboyantly gay too, they had to touch-up the posters to make him look more macho apprantly. tounge.gif

 

From what I understand this new Superman is like a replacement for Superman 3 or something.

Goodfella.

Well so far at Rotten Tomatoes it's 100% fresh, that's with seven reviews. I have no love for the character whatsoever, but with the budget it has and with Bryan Singer at the helm I never doubted it'd be good. I'll probably go see it.

 

And to comment on what GTA3Freak said, yeah it's supposed to continue on from Superman 2, they're just pretending 3 and 4 never happened.. they were crap.

Seems like Supes is either hit or miss with fans. You either love him or hate him. He's my favorite superhero personally, though I get where the dislike stems from, and also how that contributes to people liking Batman and Spiderman so much. From what I've seen of the film from adverts and the HBO First Look, I really want to see this.

This movie does infact look good. What I'm saying is. Why the hell did they use the same music, same Jor-El, and re-make the beginning. In my eyes it's a slap in the face to Richard Donner and everyone involved with the 1978 version. Yeah, sure, the makers of the new movie will call it a tribute. But if I literally slapped someone in the face and called it a tribute, would that person think the same thing? Anyway. That's just my thoughts.

I'm pretty sure they didn't remake the begining, they're just showing flashbacks of Clark's younger years on the farm. If anything I think they're honouring Donner by continuing the story in his vision.

 

Only 'beef' I have with it is that in a way they are kinda just relying on old ideas and putting a bigger budget and modern technology behind it, unlike say Batman Begins which went in a drastic new direction, saving a previous flailing franchise of movies and just blew everyone away in the process.

 

There's rumours that the Spidey 3 teaser might get played with it too...

As Christian Bale said, Batman is the badass. Superman, is not.

 

But hey, I've always been a bit of a Superman fan. I think the trailer makes it look fantastic. And as for it going back to Smallville and introducing us to his powers, as far as I can gather it's going to be very brief.

 

I know Lex is in it, played by the amazing Kevin Spacey, but is there also a monster...?

I'm pretty sure Luthor is the only villain. Which kinda brings me to my other 'beef', from the trailers he comes off as very campy, a bit too much, like hard to take seriously at all, eg "WRRRRROOONNGGG!".

I would have loved to see The Death Of Superman movie that almost happened. Tim Burton was set to direct and Kevin Smith wrote it. The only iffy thing was Nic Cage was gonna be Superman, which seemed odd to me.

Superman is dead. He fell off a horse, had wheelchair races for 20 odd years then some old biddie spiked his mash-per-taties with KRIPALITE and Superman died happily ever after.

 

This new film look good. Looks to have some depth, but not that kind of depth Lois Lane has between her bacon flaps, f*cking whorebag.

I heard this film extremely sucked. To the core. Thus, I won't watch it.

I never said that he shouldn't. I never said that the movie wasn't gonna be loveable. I'm just saying, that it looks to me, like a slap in his, face.

And you gather this from what? A movie from 30 years ago, right?

 

Don't get me wrong...Batman is the greatest superhero ever after seeing Batman Begins. I just hope that Superman is brought up to that greatness level by Bryan Singer this Wednesday.

The first two movies were really good for the time, I doubt that's why TEoS hates the character. Most people who dislike him do so because he's so perfect, invincible, an alien. Other people like imperfect heroes, heroes who have flaws and thus are more relatable.

Exactly. But I loved when superman died, and they had the different versions. The man of tomorrow and The man of steel are my favorites. Although the man of tomorrow (AKA Cyborg superman) was really a supervillian.

No, I'm basing it off the fact that he's pretty gay and has one of the most obscure weaknesses ever.

Obscure and nonsensical. Kryptonite makes him weaker than a normal, healthy human being. However, his entire home planet was made of Kryptonite, which is why he had no special powers there. Nobody on his planet was a weak shriveling sissy boy. If being on Earth makes him superhuman, then Kryptonite should hardly affect him, unless you had a whole planet worth of it.

STUNNING. NEVER LOSES ITS PACE. ALWAYS INTERESTING. BRUTAL. HEROIC. DRAMATIC. TOUCHING. INSANE.

 

Superman has Returned, and I witnessed it.

 

Oh wow, it's so funny to look back on how nerds scrutinized EVERYTHING about a trailer.

 

"Lex Luthor's line delivery seems awkward."

"The 'S' on the outfit is a bit different from the other movies. *nerdy whine* "

"Kate Bosworth sucked in *insert movie here*."

 

STFU plz, k thx

 

Everything about this movie was awesome. I won't even talk about the plot. I watched all the trailers and TV spots and still loved it. They kept so much secretive! DON'T SPOIL THE MOVIE FOR YOURSELF...SEE IT NOW!

 

Spider-man hit the screen with near perfection in 2002...

Daredevil hit the screen and sucked ass...

HULK hit the screen and bored me with uninteresting characters...

Batman Begins hit the screen with near perfection in 2005...

 

Superman has Returned!

It looks pretty good. I'm no fan of Superman, but this movie doesn't look half bad. I was watching some Superman special on tv where the had clips from the new movie, and the guy who plays Superman looks to be a really good actor. I'd like to see it in IMAX 3D, but I'd have to find an IMAX around.

I forgot to say that after the movie was over, the nerds congregated outside the theater and I heard some of them using Internet language like "wtf man?" and "n00b." I wanted to slap them silly.

 

These are the same nerds I saw with DS Lite's on the way in. No PSP's in sight.

 

Nintendo is soaring back to its rightful place...the place it hasn't been in 10 years!

if youre true to the comic, theres going to be some things that youre going to hate about this movie. i wont go into details, cause i know how people freak out about spoilers... but im goign to have to strongly disagree with Jordan, that movie is far from a 5/5 it's just liek x-men2 and 3, good comic story turned for hollywood fame. 3/5
