I've never been the biggest fan of Superman. However, seeing the previews of Superman Returns... I kinda thought it would be really good.


Lex: "WRONG!!!"


Superman Returns, in the end, was just a movie about Superman "returning"...and watching him save people. That's pretty much it.

The only main bad guy in this movie is Lex. No one else. In other words...classic Superman movie plotline. Since there is no supervillain, just Lex, it turned out to be boring in the end.

Now, don't get me wrong. Kevin Spacey played a good Lex Luthor. There's just one problem.... Lex is a normal human...which means Superman would probably decapitate him with a punch.

Therefore, Superman doesn't fight anyone in the entire movie. No punching, no special power fighting, nothing.

So how does Superman stop Lex, you might ask? I won't spoil anything, but I will say it was extremely anti-climactic.

I would rate this movie as one that's a good popcorn flick, but not worth seeing more than once. I'm sure others would disagree with me, but from my point of view, Batman > Superman. Always.

I liked the movie. It didn't need a big battle with some super villian, it would have been nice, but it didn't need it.

I hear this movie is more about a psychological view of the Superman universe, it tries to make you think.

Rather than just boost your ego with catchy graphics.

Perhaps it didn't, but it still lacked a lot of action. The most action-packed scene was the falling airplane scene. Everything else just seened really mediocre. When I see a superhero movie, I wanna see some action and fun fights.

But hey...Spiderman 3 and Ghostrider are out next year, and I still have yet to see X3.

As far as DC comic movies are concerned though...I can't WAIT for the next Batman movie if they follow the "Begins" storyline!

X3 was garbage. They finished breaking what was mildly broken (yet enjoyable) for the first two films.

Spiderman 3 and Batman Begins' sequel have me stoked though.

I am also hearing rumors of an Avengers movie, which just might make me own my underpants.

I would have gone for any sort of fighting. For Christ's sake, even the animated Superman would at least hit the bad guys.

Any superhero that requires a villain to pull a chunk of alien ore out of his ass for there to even be a storyline is not a superhero to be making movies about. Don't even get me started on how Lois can't recognize the man she loves when he puts on glasses.

Luckly I went to a matinee, otherwise it would have cost me more than $6.50 for those two and a half hours of drivel.

Have they named it yet, or can I call it 'Batman Continues' for now?

I haven't seen Batman Begins, but from what I understand, it was a movie about Batman beginning, so why would they have villains from far off in his life appear in his accent to superhero. Anyway, I wouldn't want to see those villains packed into it, would be too early imo.

From what I know, he didn't know lead could protect him from kryptonite till later on with some research from whoever, and then someone made him a lead suit which he wears when he knows someone is going to use kryptonite against him. Thats what I saw in the animated series anyway...

Batman Forever wasn't THAT bad. Batman and Robin, however, was a disgrace that brought an end to the batman movies VERY quickly.

Director: "I wonder how many familiar actors I can throw in to get money?!"

Batman rocked
Batman Returns rocked
Batman Forever + Batman & Robin -> pure crap..

Batman Begins was quite good (shocking tbh).. Looking forward to a sequel :eek:
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 is looking sweet to..

Oh and about Superman Returns -> Yes.. I found it even worse than both Spiderman movies combined (oh god, how those sucked).. It's obvious they want a piece of the superhero-movies-cake, and to me, Batman Begins ate the whole damn cake.
