    Haha. Nuclear Man. I still have a lot of nostalgia for those Reeves movies, good or bad.
    As a kid seeing it in the theater, I loved it. As an adult...yeah...it's hilarious. Mariel Hemingway being able to breathe while being carried by Nuclear Man (in SPACE!!), her hair blowing in the wind while being carried by Nuclear Man (in SPACE!!), when Nuclear Man shuts off because Supes moves the moon out of orbit (nevermind the ramifications of that) to cause an eclipse she nearly falls to her death (in mother f'in SPACE yo!!).

    I actually wonder how that movie would have turned out had Cannon not cut the budget in half on the first day of shooting. Jon Cryer spoke candidly about it a while back and said there was less and less food at craft services and that Reeve was completely bummed when the six months of flying stunts got shrunk to one month. The movie came out in '87 and the effects were on par with the George Reeves series.

It was a straight rip off of the first movie, the entire cast was miscast, Brandon Routh doesn't deserve the John Williams theme and just feels out of place when you see him instead of Reeve, Superboy was a dumb idea, leaving Earth to go and find nothing for 5 years was a dumb idea, James Marsden was the most unnecessary character and was really only there to shock you when you find out the baby is Supes', Supes with makeup all over his face, Jesus Supes, ...forget it. I don't have all day to explain how pointless and stupid Superman Returns was. And Singer gets extra negative credit for leaving the X-Men franchise to do this POS. He essentially ruined two franchises at once.

    SM 3 and 4 were awful...SR wasn't awful. It actually has some nice cinematography which I think trumps "so bad it's good" crap. I didn't think it was that bad...and I'm usually negative to most "super hero" movies...in fact I think I hate most of them.

    Whatever...I just hope this new one is good.

    That's exactly what makes Superman Returns so diabolically terrible.

    It HAD potential but was ruined by a lack of focus and direction.

    My complaints about that movie are long, loud, detailed and have very very little to do with my being a "Superman Fan". I would love nothing more than to spend the rest of my life traveling the land on foot showing people one by one exactly why Superman Returns sucks.

    Could you do one in the same vein as your Avatar one please? I still get goosebumps when I think about that.

    I recall a particular fascination with the floating mountains and the waterfalls on said mountains. It was one of your better rants especially since I agreed with you. Still not as good as your pure venom re:Tron though imo. That was some of your prime material.

    You should have seen the epic "Crash was a steaming pile of crap and you're an idiot if you liked it".

    Now THAT was a thread.

    RIP.
