I saw Superman Returns yesterday.
Normally I would not have gone to see Superman Returns. Superman is not really a hard edged enough superhero for me. I am more of a villian loving girl. I didn't like the Chris Reeve Superman movie much, so I would have waited to see Superman Returns for free or not at all, but there is a tiny arthouse theater in my city and it was showing the movie and I had the day off. I went and sat on a nice cushy chair and saw it and I loved it. It wasn't a great movie by any standards, it was a bit choppy and not too polished. Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane looks like a sexless Angelina Jolie. The actor that played Superman is way better looking than Chris Reeve, so there's a plus. The movie had quite a bit of symbolism that brought to mind the struggle of America as the outsider trying to save an ungrateful world from itself. I cried twice during the movie, I don't want to spoil it for any of you, I want you to go see it. I am pretty cynical and tough as you all know and it moved me quite a bit.
