    Where to start:

    Making it a sequel rather than a new series.

    Lex Luthor is the villain...again.

    Lex's evil plot is exactly the same as the one in the original.

    Supes and Lois look like they should be in high school. Not 5 years older than the characters in part 2.

    Supes' face is all weird when he's Supes.

    Baby Supes/love triangle.

    Boring action.

    Jesus Supes.

    I only saw the movie once but I know there were other problems I'm forgetting.

    I feel bad for Brandon Routh. So far the Superman curse is still a killer if you count his career. I blame Bryan Singer and think he gets off way too lightly. Singer is still coasting on the fumes of the heat of Usual Suspects. Nothing he has done since has equalled the promise he showed with that debut. Then again, he had a spot on cast of professionals and a great screenplay to work with, so how much of that was his to own?

    Though not necessarily on the level of The Usual Suspects, X2 was one of the best comic book movies of the last decade.

    umm...was it the best X-flick so far...well no, the Fassbender one was. But one of the best of the last decade...ooof, if you are looking at spots 9 or 10 maybe. Like Hellraiser, they still haven't made the definitive X-movie. Geez, all you have to do is read Claremont's almost ridiculously good work during the Hellfire Club period to see just how good the X-men can be. Jayzus...Storm=Halle Berry...fail. James Marsden=Cyclops...fail. Angela Basset should have been Storm, and someone like...Matt Damon, would have made a great Cyclops. Too many shortcuts. They got more interested in cameos by beloved characters they had NO IDEA how to handle. HOW do you **** up Nightcrawler so much??? What a waste. I grew up during the X-men heyday as far as the comics. I remember the long walk to Panorama City's PAPERBACK SHACK on comics day...and they were late with the monthlies more often than not...but when that comic hit the stands...I RAN HOME. None of the X movies has given me that same charge.

    I know very little about the comics. I'm just talking from a movie standpoint. X2 was a lot of fun to watch and 10 times better than all the Marvel movies that get so much love these days. Good action, good story, great villain, etc. It also gave me that emotional investment and a sense of, "uh oh, the good guys might not win this time" which these types of movies rarely do. First Class was great too but I'd give the slight edge to X2.

    WB Releases New MAN OF STEEL Poster on Twitter | Collider

    Man. There is a TON riding on this. It will make money. The curiosity is too high and the marketing has been very good. But the word of mouth has to be strong otherwise this will go down as a fail no matter how much it makes. Probably the most interesting summer movie in terms of the backstory. My boy Snyder could survive, even if its a disaster, but if this thing succeeds...he gets catapulted into a whole new stratosphere. Just a really interesting situation.

    I'm gonna have to agree with you. I still think it was an OK movie...in fact, I thought the cinematography was terrific. It might have been "bad' to some but it was every bit as "good" as 90% of these crappy comic-book based movies out there.

    Lifting a plane and lowering it into Metropolis errrrr Dodger Stadium. (The CGI in that scene was sooooooooo bad.)

    Kate Bosworth as the worst Lois and Mom ever.

    You can get "exclusive" screening tickets at Walmart next Saturday so you can see it a whopping 5 hours before everyone else.
