Superman Returns

Superman. Abso-f*cking-lutely rocked. Mind you, I've always been a very big Supes fan--I loved the movies in the late 70's and early 80's. So to have the same theme music come crashing through the theater speakers was a trip, to say the least.

It was kind of a chick-flick, but not really. Just a little touchy-feely, but I think it was necessary to build up the characters for a new generation of movie goers. But the special effects and action scenes were phenomenal. Like let-out-a-yell-in-a-crowded-movie phenomenal. Princess, I think, was a little bored--but Cowboy was completely beside himself. In the movie the bad guys figure out a way to hurt Big Blue and the beat the snot out of him. For a while you think he's dead or dying. As the scene was playing out I could hear my five year old Cowboy sniffling in his seat beside me. I looked down and he was crying his eyes out, but didn't want to make any noise because he was in the theater.

Man, he's a great kid.

Anyway--I'll probably take Cowboy to see it again, because this is one that is definitely better in the theater. I think it sucks that it's not doing so well, because I am dying to see a sequel.

  1. I too mostly enjoyed Singer's take on the Man of Steel, though it was a little long, and, at least to me, Lex Luthor's plot just seemed to make little sense at all
