I love Superman. As superpeople go, he is the shit. I hated Superman: the Movie when it came out. I really wanted to like this one. But, they are the same. The word for word same.
- The Lex Luthor land speech? the same
- The superman kryptonite water plot device? the same.
- The Lex babe with conscience? the same
- Lex offers to sell out his accomplice for some personal benefit? the same.
It is a way better film than the 1978 version or its sequels. It goes gritty instead of campy, which I liked. The effects are of course better. How two newspaper reporters can afford a house overlooking Manhattan, a sea plane and an Audi that hasn’t been offered for sale in the US yet is a bigger suspension of disbelief for me than the whole krypton dude.
What did rock:
Lois is way hotter this time around, so that right there makes it OK that she’s so boringly perfect..
In four words: Blue Frasier was badder. Also: Pomeranians Get No Respect.
