    Re: Superman Returns Trailer

    I have been a Superman fan almost as long as I have been a RAMS fan. The new one looks too much like the Batman stuff. Dark, Gotham City-like.

    The first movie with Christopher Reeve is still my favorite. But, I will probably drag my wife along to see this one.

    I'm pretty psyched for this one. I like how they're using music and Brando's voice-over of Jor-El to keep the continuity with the old series. I also like the "do we really need a Superman" theme.

    Is this the one with the eye thing at the end? Man, that annoys the heck out of me.

    This smells of someone sitting around a table saying, "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if Superman got shot in the eye and it ricocheted off of it? Man we should put that in somewhere," and then the production staff building a situation where that would happen or trying to squeeze it into a scene, as opposed to having a story where the effects are realistic actions and consequences in the scene itself.

    Look at another Bryan Singer effects film - X-Men. In it, he had Cyclops and Storm travel to a train station to find Rogue, who had run away. Their opposition is already there though, and in a great effects shot, Toad steals Cyclops' visor causing him to unleash a huge optic blast and take him out of the fight. The optic blast effects shot was awesome, but it served a purpose. This shot in Superman serves no purpose other than simply trying to be cool, and in that role, it fails for me.

    Comic movies obviously are going to have their share of cheese, but that one just crossed the line into Cheeseville for me, and comes off as lame. I don't think that's overanalysis, but just simple movie making. You don't make a blockbuster hit by throwing a bunch of cool effects shots together. They have to mean something and be part of the story, and I just don't see where this is anymore than some fanboy coming up with something cool to show on the big screen. Hopefully other parts of the film weren't victims of that same kind of approach.
