I watched Superman Returns twice and can't believe he has a son! Wow, now that that spoiler is out of the way lets talk reviews.
It's a good movie...but not the Summer Movie I have been waiting for! Boy the sound effects are really SUPER! Lord bless Surround. Special effects were awesome.
Brandon Routh plays superman really well and I think in time he will acquire that polite modest arrogance/confidence of being superman...instead of looking like he is pouting. Dean Cain and Tom Welling had/have that confidence...and Brandon will too. I believe he was well cast for this gigantic role and will mould with it come the sequel.
Don't get me started on Lois Lane played by Kate Bosworth!
Kevin Spacey was great (though I kept seeing him as Kevin Spacey and not Lex Luthor) and his side-kick Kitty delivered some good laughs!
He always plays villains extremely well, remember him in Se7en?
Unfortunately for me I was looking for action and not a big romantic storyline. Boy, they wasted reel-time with 'Superman in hospital' sequence/Superman and Lois flying around the world...I needed more action than I did a romance!
You all know the story, Superman had returned to krypton and has been missing from earth for 5 years. Sure, the same triangles of Lois/Clark were there...Lois/Superman...Jonathan Kent was dead...Lois has moved on and had a son who ends up being superman's kid...But its kinda funny knowing that Superman done done the nasty with Lois! hahahahaha
As good a flick as this was, I feel XMen3 delivered more! and I'm sad to say i preferred XMEN
I took my nephews to go watch it yesterday. And after returning the last one home yesterday he changed into his superman pyjamas and climbed into his spiderman sheets. Conflict of interests i'd say..but from there a post was born!
Between Superman and Spiderman who is your hero? Who's is more cooler or tougher? Tho both have killer theme music...
Cause obviously Superman is uber powerful.Superman could kick Spidey's ass even if his webs were made of Kryptonite. Superman is one bad mutha....
1.Has NATURAL powers. His strength and abilities are innate.No spider bite!
2.Invincible except when it comes to that lil green rock
3.That S sign on his costume and the cape totally ROCK!
4.HE CAN FLY!!!!!! no superhero has that on him..wacha that Batman and his fake leaps..he can FLY!
Ever wonder how his cape dangles under his suit? where his specs go when he changes...and don't even get me started on the boots?
So, that out of the way. Why on earth does SPIDERMAN rule more. Cause as much as I like Superman I think I have Spidey fetish.
When it comes to BOXoffice wise. Spiderman will always thrush Superman. SPIDEY rocks! There is something that was missing in Superman Returns that you will always find in Spiderman movies. Have you seen the preview of Spiderman 3..watch it and you will see the X-factor I'm talking about that makes Spidey Rock! And hence I'm always biased towards Spidey!
It is darker, grander and more overwhelming-check the preview here
A reviewer said " this is sex, in a video! kinda like porno. but better."
I CANNOT wait for SPIDERMAN3.
Now is that a costume or what? ebu someone hook Nick up with this template.
Spiderman has more villains, more action sequences and that MaryJ Spiderman love triangle in an entangled web isn't too overplayed like the Lois/Clark one.
Not to mention they too go all the way out with special effects.
1.Remember the closing sequence in Spiderman1...as he leaped up and about and landed on the American Flag? Some serious C-G choreography...which don't compare to Superman's flying!
2.Not to mention that upside down kiss..boy I wish I could dangle like that
