Superman Returns Thoughts

So I was flipping through channels last night and happened to settle on INHD’s In Theaters trailer program. They happened to be showing a trailer (trailer #1 at the link) for Superman Returns. That’s when I realized they were using the John Williams music from the original movie and how much @$$ that music kicks. I’d say the original Superman score is in the top 3 Williams scores, right with Star Wars and Raiders. It looks like they will be using a mix of Williams’ music and new music by John Ottman (he did the music for the X-Men movies). Could be good or bad, depending on how much Williams they use.

I am impressed by their web presence. They have a lot of interesting stuff for webmasters use. I think all movie website should follow this lead.

As for the movie itself, I’m not sure. Brandon Routh looks like a girly-man, too smooth and ‘perfect’. I’m just not fired up for this movie. But the music (Williams), makes me want to see the orignal again. Hello Netflix!

  1. The actor playing superman looks like yet another male model. But you can’t judge an actor by a few publicity shots.

    Too bad the brits don’t make more movies at least they use real actors.

    I liked the quip about epic tale of redemption. Just what has mr.milk and cookies dione that requires redemption? I wish Hollywood ad copywriters could learn some sexy new keywords to plug into their vacous hype.

    But, this is just fanboy grousing. I’m still going to see the movie.

    Yeah, the new supes actor is quite the tall thin coiffed-looking she-man isn’t he.
