    Reviewers are not liking the new movie. Apparently the Superman and Lois Lane characters just don't work together; nobody will believe they love each other. the story is too serious and dark as though Superman is the new dark knight, and the movie is more like "Superman, the Transformers 3" than "Superman, Man of Steel". There is no Lex Luthor, and no kryptonite in this story as though they decided the original story is too boring so they changed it completely.

    The reviews I heard this morning complain that the soul of the superman story is sucked out of superman.

    Doesn't surprise me. Hollywood, for some reason, can't figure out how to make good Superman movies. You'd think they would hire the one guy who actually did make a great Superman film, Richard Donner, and just have him direct it.

    Wow, I am usually right with you on most movies but the original Superman is still THE best comic book movie ever made.

    All the reviews I've read all seem to agree the fight between superman and zod is one of the most epic things filmed.

    61% Rotten Tomatoes. Good enough for me.

    Reeves was amazing. I disagreed a little with the light hearted tone with it. It's better than all the Schumacher batman movies combined, that's for sure. :c

    This. I have journalist friends who've seen it, and they're bugging the fuck out. Froggy, you sound like a hater. How do Superman's balls taste, bro?

    When Singer did Superman Returns, most people bitched about the fact that it was another Lex Luthor story. Now here's Froggy, asking why it isn't a Lex Luthor story.

    I liked it so much I'd see it again. We didn't see it in 3-D. I'm not the hugest fan of that. Usually it seems like an excuse
    to add about $4 to the ticket price. Exceptions to that: Hugo and Avatar.
