Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don't share their power with mankind.

So Superman Returns eh? Its both good bad and ugly.

It's good in that it has Superman doing his superman thing, rescuing damsels, prevent disasters and juggling er… giant steel balls. It has some  F.A.B. movie references to the back catalogue of comics/films/baseballs/whatever/mythology. 

It looks good and all too. Supes flys like he ought a – effortlessly. I loved these bits of the movie.

But I'm going to focus on the BAD because fan boys love to bitch a about great movies…. Supposedly.


The ending of Superman II has Supes make Lois Lane FORGET she knows he is Clark and I thought, that she loved him and Superman too and forget all their adventures including doing the wild thing in the Fortress of Solitude. … so I don't understand why Lois is still in love with Superman when he returns from his 5 years in space doing his own NASA space exploration programme…. I could be wrong on this point though….

Lois Lane was shite. She was a poor casting.. She cant hardly act. I was crushed. There I said it. What a freaking waste of my time. I didn't buy the love and I didn't believe the tenacity she supposedly has as a reporter. The whole time I was going are you KIDDING me? Where's Margot?  And she supposedly can survive being bashed about in a plane crash and not have one freaking bruise to her face. The beating she took would have made Christopher Reeves thankful he only ended up in a wheel chair, it was that bad. Yet she can walk.

Kevin Spacey – not one time did I believe he was evil. Waste of my time therefore. His EVIL plan was LAME. Lex Luthor is Stuck on Stupid.  The whole evilness plot was shite. Woo woo! Lets use Kryptonite to kill superman. Again. Give me a break. It made the movie pointless and so I was reduced to following the references and nods to what had been before and the following the supposed love story which I hardly bought. How could you love someone that ugly? At least the kid was cute.

We all know Superman can reverse time. Why the hell doesn't he do this and just kill Lex when he is a baby? MEH! As to the Superman man portrayal by Boredom Routh I can some it up like this "Yeah Honey, I had sex with her but it didn't mean a thing. I was thinking of you the whole time!"

Jimmy Olsen. Fuck what a drip. Nuf said.

That dead guy from Xmen. What a drip. Nuff said. He and Jimmy should start a family.

In short, the best acting was from Marlon Brando and he's dead. At least in the real world Mystique nude is smokin hot.

Okay I've b'arched more that I meant too. Suffice to say as a big fan I'm disappointed but at the same time pretty happy to have seen the red cape fly once more.
