    i've seen the movie twice, and having given your comment some thought, and those particular scenes even more thought, i tend to think that you cannot have enough close-ups of any part of superman... [face_blush]

    i have to agree with the lois lane comment. she was NOT AT ALL fit for the role i think, altho i am a mere fan. it didn't feel like i was watching lois. she wasn't funny and didn't get herself into trouble like margot did. kate also had the demeanor of a very bitter and very unhappy person, which i understand is part of how she must feel with his absence and all, but it was so extreme that she was not lovable and the character was even unrecognizable.

    also what is up with the flat frizzy bland hair? goes to show, when you need a feisty brunette, you better just go get a real one. ;)

    Frankly I don't care for any current screen versions of Lois Lane. The only good ones were Noel Neill, Phylis Coates and the one in the cuurent animated adventures.

    MARGOT RULED!

    "How many t's are in bloodletting?"

    "Two. Watcha writing Miss Lane?"

    "An Ode to Spring...how do you spell massacre?"

    I freely admit to being a Margot-Lois gusher!

    I've been meaning to post this for a while. I really liked the movie, although I do agreee that some things could've been better. I liked how it made Superman more of an outsider, and showed how he feels when he's alone - that he isn't one of us, and that he's trying to find his place. There was also more of the Christ-like analogy in this one too, which made Superman indeed a savior, albeit a somewhat tortured one.

    I think Brandon Routh is worthy of taking over the mantle. He could've gotten more to do and say, but what he did have worked. Some say Kate Bosworth wasn't the punchy Lois character that we're used to. But in this film, she isn't the same character. Once Superman returns, all these old feelings come back, and her relationship with Richard (and Jason) is now made more complex. She does have her moments with Perry White though. Speaking of which, I think the Perry was better in the original, dialogue-wise.

    The whole Jason aspect I'm still thinking about. The fact that he "killed" someone is sort of rubbing people the wrong way (although we didn't see the body) as being inappropriate for a "good guy" in a DC comic book movie. Maybe there's something we don't know yet, which will be revealed in one (or both) of the two sequels.

    All in all, this is what "Superman III" should have been. Now when the 14-disc box set comes out this winter with director's cuts of I, II, III, & IV, plus "Superman Returns", it'll be interesting to see how they link together (well I, II, and "Returns" at least).

    I still love the first film, and it will remain one of my favorite films, as well as being the blueprint for super hero films.



    Oh, and one more thing: Cyclops lives! :cool:

    Does anyone want my Superman shirt I wore to the IMAX show? It's a navy blue, size Medium. I wore a shirt underneath it that night, so it's clean. :) I bought another one that has a "distressed" look that I like better.

    PM me if interested.

    Last updated at 12:01pm on 31st August 2006
    Glenn Ford, one of the most enduring stars of the silver screen, has died at the age of 90.

    The actor, who appeared in more than 200 films in a career spanning five decades, died at his home in Beverly Hills, California... "

    Yeah it was cool seeing is image in Superman Returns inside the Kent house.

    Here's a little piece of trivia - Name the OTHER movie that starred both Glenn Ford and Marlon Brando.

    Hint - the movie was in Black and White.

    Speaking of things Superman, anyone thinking of going to the new movie Hollywoodland about the George Reeves murder?

    I'll be checking it out. If it's anything like "L.A. Confidential" (one of my favorite films), then I'm there!

    Ikina want to see Hollywoodland too, despit Afleck being in it. But I though L.A. Confidential was a poor glossy adaptation of James Elroy's brilliant book. It was like pseudo noir.

    Well, I guess lots of movie critics, Academy voters, and moviegoers (including myself) disagree with you there, but it's often the case where a movie can't do justice to it's original source material....like LOTR. [face_whistling] ;)
