I don't know. I always get a bit leery when they do these super hero movies over and over and over again. But usually, they seem to manage to top themselves every time. And usually, they seem to find a way to tell the same story a little differently, so I'm always willing to give them a shot. Mostly, I want to watch them because I just love these stories so much, no matter what really.
But I was especially worried about this latest Superman one. Everyone raved, so I went. And I must say, it did enjoy the different angle, even though it is still quite similar in part to some of the others. The villain was definitely different! I've never seen anything like that done before in a superhero movie!
And of course Henry whatshisface makes for a pretty near perfect superman, agreed? A very lovely superman! However, as I said before, Superman will always be Christopher Reeve for me. His bumbling Clark Kent? Classic!
And not to say it's a bad thing or anything, but the last about third of this movie was mostly just blowing up things. Wow, explosions! So if that sort of thing makes you happy, you will love this movie without a doubt. I thought it was fine to a point, but then I was like, okay... ummmm... next??
However, there was one scene that brought me to weepy tears so quick and fast, I didn't know what hit me! If you've seen the movie, can you guess which scene I'm talking about?
But of course I still loved it because I'm not very critical of these things really, as you may have guessed by now. And it's obvious the music was AWESOME!! So, if you haven't seen it but you are a fan of superheroes... what ARE you waiting for?
