A Few Of The Many Great Things About 'Superman Returns'
(Described Too Vaguely To Spoil Anything, I Hope)

How Luthor got his money
Security footage of convenience store robbery
Bald Luthor
Red-haired Jimmy
Perry White
Daily Planet globe
Someone eats a piano
Shot in the eyeball
"How did you get here?" "I flew."
How super-hearing sounds
Lonely Superman
Pants-crappingly amazing airplane rescue
Great little kid
John Williams score, updated
Sob-inducing shot of Ma Kent in a crowd


Superman's Bar Mitzvah
Superman's crucifixion
Superman and Jimmy's sex scene

My rating: See the motherfucker!

But first, read The Onion A.V. Club's funny Villains Unlikely To Turn Up In Future Superman Movies!

Bald Luthor?

Wow. I gotta see that!

Great review there, Pey-El! You actually managed to list every worthwhile thing about that movie (except for the awesome "young Clark bounds around the fields" scene).

I have one question, though: in the Daily Planet scenes, why didn't they want Brandon Rauth to try to portray Clark Kent? Why did they force him to play Christopher Reeve playing Clark Kent? It was creepy!

bad dan,

Reeve didn't invent the meek-geek interpretation of Kent. And Routh's was different; less slapstick, less the center of attention, more invisible, just the way Superman would have planned it.

Sorry, I hated this movie. I would love to see a movie where Superman is the old Seigel/Shuster one, fighting the number one Unlikely Villain from the Onion list though.

Good review. I gave it an A+ as well. This is EXACTLY how a Superman movie should have been like and they should see it.

Bad review. I give it an F-. This is NOT how a Superman movie should have been like and no one should see it.
