So, it comes out soon, and i only recently caught the trailer, so now im hyped. Am i understanding this right, is this supposed to be so many years after Reeves & part 2 (the best one of the lot), saying he left and now he's back in this one? Kinda ret-cons 3 & 4 outta existence? Cause i never figured where Batman Begins was supposed to fit into the old fimls, if at all. Us fanboys & our continuity issues.

 

I'm expecting us locals to do another fanboy meetup. Anyone else hyped? After X3, i wanna enjoy this.

I'm semi-looking forward to this. Just sore still that Singer left X3 to take on such an(my expectations aren't high: How does one pass off primary colours as credible in this day & age?) uphill skate. Comes out here I think- 25th June?

Yes I am hyped up about this movie. Just thinking about hearing the Superman theme is giving me the chills.

Can't wait for it.

I wouldn't mind ignoring 1 and 2 to be honest. I just rewatched them, and while Reeve plays an AMAZING Superman, I was horrified to discover just how much of my love for them was the haze of nostalgia, and that both films have holes in them the size of the San Andreas.

Well, in the second one, Lex Luthor blows up the San Andres, so there's the San Andres size hole from part 2. I don't remember such a hole in part one.

 

That was part 1. Part 2 had the trio of crazed kyptonians. Which means you probably haven't watched them recently. Do so, it'll open your eyes.

 

fanboy reviews i read said it was fun but campy, not really better than the original 2....we'll see.

 

Campier that hte original two? Because if that's tghe case it's gonna be REAL campy, those first two were campy as FUCK!

shit, the review's not on their front page anymore...im misquoting, it didnt say more campy, but closer to it than expected, i think they said Luthor hammed it up...but its only one review, and its the only i read so far. basically said if youre a fanboy who dug the old films, youll love it, if not, chances are you might not.

So if we're gonna doa thing for this, we gotta make plans soon.

 

Rotten Tomatoes currently has 14 fresh review to 4 rotten, for a 78% ratio. I generally like to wait until there's at least 60 reviews before seeing the the percentage is representative of the critic base.
