Superman returned, and proved Brodie wrong...

I read an article on New York Times this morning that pissed me off. An American soldier has been arrested for raping an Iraqi girl and murdering her family. He'll prolly get off, and that pisses me off even more than his actions.  Rape and murder are vile things to do, and for a soldier to do them while doing his duty is just horrific. I shouldn't be too pissed about this, since I'm sure he's not the first soldier to do such a thing. http://www.cnn.com/2006/LAW/07/03/iraq.charge/index.html

We saw Superman Returns last night. It was a lot better than I thought it would be, but still very much on the ok side of things. I don't remember much of the original Superman movies, but Brandon Routh was a good choice for the role. He had some of that same dorky wholesomeness that Christopher Reeve had.  Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor was also better than I was expecting. I also don't remember Lois Lane being such a bitch. 

I thought the movie was beautifully done, the plot was relatively ok as well. I liked Lex Luthor's plan to build a mini Krypton, destroy Metropolis and beat the unholy hell out of Superman.  Superman being in the hospital and nearly dying didn't sit well with me, after all why resurrect a franchise if you're just going to kill Superman and destroy Metropolis? 

We found it kind of ironic that Lois Lane's non-Superman love interest was Cyclops from the X-Men movies. lifeofwik said something about him being in the next Dark Horse movie to which wattshumphrey replied "When is Hellboy 2 coming out?"

So Lois Lane has a kid, Superman comes back.........turns out kid is *drumroll* Superboy! I guess the Kryptonite condom broke.  I'm not sure what to make of that little twist, but he was a cute kid at least. 

All in all Superman Returns was ok. I prolly wouldn't see it again unless I was bored and it was on HBO.

he won't get off, don't worry. most soldiers are good people, but every once in awhiole you get a jeffrey dahmer kinda guy who just doesn't get (oddly enough, like most of the civilians i've met in the past 7 years).. that guy gets caught doing something stupid and gets put away..
trust me, the guy will be calling Leavenworth home soon enough.
