It’s wildly amusing to your review of this film alongside the raves from reviewers with some clout and significance.
Maybe you’ll grow up to be a true critic, but for now you’ll surely enjoy your rebellious, rip-it-to-shreds-is-cool phase…I just doubt that anyone else will.
As for this excited movie-goers’ friends and co-workers – we’ll go regardless of reviews, but it’s nice to see that Variety, Newsweek and Time (and soon countless others) assuring us that we’re on the right path.
Good (lol) Job!
So, as someone who reviews movies in xxx and just got out of the screening I wanted to check rottentomatoes to see if I was the only one who hated it.
Apparently it was you *and* me!
I was so bored I’m still wiping off the drool from my chin.
Your review of Superman Returns was by far the worst review I have ever tried to read. I could not get through the whole review because you whined so much. How does a person get a job with Movie City News. Do you go into the bosses office and say, “I hate this movie more then life itself” and your boss gives you a web page. I will never read you again.
One more thing loser. Kids do have sex at 23 and get pregnant at 18. It happens all the time. Also, I know a Pulitzer winner and he is 24. So it does happen. You will defiantly never see one.
I find your reviews and your web site pure rubbish. I even feel contrite for having spent as much time as I have reading your work. You aren’t Peter Travers or Roger Ebert so quit taking yourself so seriously.
Thank you for writing your review on Superman Returns. I’m glad someone isn’t drooling over Singer’s latest stunt.
I’m a Superman fan through and through. I have Asperger’s and he’s my thing I have an encyclopedic knowledge of. And this movie looks like a big slap in the face. I mean, the costume looks terrible (I lost my costume, but the Teen Titans lent me some scuba gear), Kate Bosthworth is only two days older than me (honestly, we have problems when the cast of SMALLVILLE is older than the cast of SUPERMAN), and I don’t know about you, but Superman having a love child is uncomfortable and depressing.
I haven’t seen the movie, but I heard that about it and I’m guessing that might be what offended you cuz it sure the hell offended me.
The rest of your colleagues seem to be eating it up. So do so-called fans who don’t see the problem with Superman having a son and saying “you will never be alone… well, I’ll leave you alone for right now.”
Having a son means responsibilities which in this case should include telling Lois that Clark Kent isn’t just a casual friend at work. I tell this to people, they think I’m a prude.
I think finally, we’re told that just because Bryan Singer makes a bunch of references to the first Superman (this may be the world’s only $260 million love letter) that he “understands” the character.
He doesn’t understand this: it may appear outwardly that the crystals of the Fortress of Solitude and the theme music (don’t get me wrong, it’s great) and Lex Luthor being aided by bumbling morons is a huge part of the Superman legend, but the character was around for 40 years before it came out. It’s not like Donner used the music from the classic TV series. In fact, as much as I love George Reeves, one of the great things about Christopher Reeve was how DIFFERENT he was and how far they knew they could take it from the man most people were familiar with. In this case, Singer went to the lab and cloned him.
Eh. I’m sorry. I didn’t even see it. I’m just glad someone out there isn’t falling for X-boy’s little stunt.
I’ve seen the movie and I’d like to congratulate you on the sale of your soul. I hope you got a good price.
go fuck yourself! you suck as a movie critic. Get a new job. Your work place should hire me
nobody gives a shit about your stupid review of superman so shove it prick.
just read your review in tomatoes on superman, and i must confess that i had not the strength nor the patience to continue beyond the passage where you correlated the performers’ chronological ages with the ages of their onscreen persona.
please, my dear fellow, i implore you as would all your peers…
GET A CLUE.
superman is a fable, and as with all fables time is only PERCEIVED and therefore IRRELEVANT (you must have had one helluva time sitting through blade runner wondering if and when the night would ever end…)
looking forward to your next review.
Excellent review of “Superman Returns” and “Nacho Libre,” thank you very much. It hurts to see these to fall into mediocrity.
Just a note on Jack Black. Peter Jackson is already filming two more King Kong sequels (“Son of Kong” and the third as yet untitled). The “Tenacious D” movie will go forward regardless of what Libre does at the box office. Black, at this point, can do no wrong.
“Miami Vice” I grew up with (probably like yourself) and will go see regardless of the reviews. “World Trade Center” I expect to be schlock, because Oliver Stone is Oliver Stone. The sleeper hit of the summer will be “Snakes on a Plane.” “A Scanner Darkly” has some potential to be memorable.
