I read all the negative stuff people have to say about Superman Returns and it sometimes leaves me down and depressed about the whole thing. However I hadn't watched the film since it came out on DVD so I really wanted to reaffirm my position that it is a good film. Having just finished it I can say that Superman Returns is a wonderful film and a true piece of cinematic art. It's just absolutely beautiful something you cannot say about the majority of comic book flicks. I would say that Bryan Singer sometimes sacrifices the film's narrative and plot so he can work in a more poetic way. Singer, very much like George Lucas, creates tome poems or "visual poetry" as I like call it. For example the scene where Superman hovers above the earth just listening to all the problems out there. At that moment the imagery, sound and music comes together in beautiful visual poetry. Rhapsody in Blue Tights, you might say. I don't care how long I have to wait for the next film because I know it's going to be worth it with Singer behind the camera.
