Faster than a Speeding Bullet

Recommended Posts

It does seem to be an odd set-up as it does seem to be relying on the older movies as a basis.

 

As Mark says I would have thought a Superman Begins type movie would have made more sense so as to re-establish the character before we had this Returns storyline.

 

However from a personal point of view I'm very excited by this movie as I have a deep affection for the original Superman movie.

Oh, hell yeah - the original Superman is still one of my favourite superhero films (only Spider-Man II and Batman Begins are really in the same league, for me), and I enjoy Superman II a lot too (I'd love to see the Donner-directed cut of it which is doing the rounds, though - it's a great film, but there're a few bits which don't work for me as it stands, which have apparently been rectified in the re-edited version). For that reason, if nothing else, I'm looking forward to Superman Returns enormously.

Richard Donner is apparently hard at work on finishing his cut of Superman II for a DVD release around the launch of Superman Returns. which means that movie is a success, in my opinion.

 

the really confusing thing for me is that the movie is a semi-sequel to the original Superman flick but ignores all the others. okay, so I don't exactly mind them ignoring III and IV, but it sure is confusing...

I think it was confirmed a recent interview Warner Bros DVD producers gave. it was mainly on their classic flicks, but someone snuck in some questions on stuff like Blade Runner (still no go, much to the annoyance of the WB DVD folks) and Superman II. and they then confirmed Richard Donner is working on a Superman II director's cut for them.

Hits all the right notes for me, even if my memories of the other Superman films are a little foggy at the moment, the first one I enjoyed thoroughly...

Nice teaser trailer. The music. The voice over. Superman floating above Earth. Tingles up my spine. :biggrin:

My doubts and fears of this movie are slowly being wiped away.

Ideally, they'd be editing together the first film and his bits of the second, since they were essentially shot as one giant film.

 

Give us the three hour Donner Superman epic!

i dont like it. i never liked superman (ok, i admit, i liked the series with teri hatcher as a kid, it was fun back then), because i find all that flying and stuff ridicolous, even when im hearing this music i have to laugh in my inners. but i will still check it out, because i love to see fun films and maybe this is. but it wont be that what i wanted to be, serious, like batman begins is. hate me now.

If anyone laughs at the John Williams' Superman score, I will tie them to a tree and let the animals have their way with them.

 

That music picking up in the original as Reeves runs towards the camera and tears open his shirt to reveal the "S" is perfect. I'm getting chills just thinking about it.

like i said, i dont know why, and sorry. i cant help my sudden feelings.

maybe because its the first score i ever think of when i see someone in a superman pose, what people often parodise, like one of my best friends often did, so when i hear it, i see him and i have to laugh. hes a very funny guy.

Ah, good ol Williams. He's a classic. Is he scoring Returns?

no, Bryan Singer's regular composer, John Ottman, is doing it but he will be using the Williams' Superman music, I think.

OK, this is funny!

 

Superman 'too big'

 

London - The new Superman is giving movie bosses a headache - because of the size of his bulge.

 

They fear Brandon Routh's profile in the superhero's skintight costume could be distracting, reports the Sun.

 

Hollywood executives have ordered the makers of Superman Returns to cover it up with digital effects.

 

The Sun's source said: "It's a major issue for the studio. Brandon is extremely well-endowed and they don't want it up on the big screen.

 

"We may be forced to erase his package with digital effects."

 

Brandon, 26, has taken over the superhero's cape from the late Christopher Reeve.

 

Wardrobe artists have had to fit him with a special codpiece for the new film out next year.

Yeah...they wrote the same article about me once...called it a distraction...I won't say what I was doing in tights... :blink:

That was a sad joke. I don't really have a penis but...

 

Yea, long story short

When I woke up from the operation I was bleeding down there

I was bleeding from a gash between my legs

It's my first day as a woman, already it's that time of the month

But 2 days later the hole closed up

The wound healed and I was left

With a one inch mound of flesh

Where my penis used to be

Where my vagina never was

It was a one inch mound of flesh

With a scar running down it like a sidways grimace on an eyeless face

It was just a little bulge

It was an angry inch!!

Here's a better one:

 

I woke up this morning with a bad hangover

And my penis was missing again.

This happens all the time.

It's detachable.

This comes in handy a lot of the time.

I can leave it home, when I think it's gonna get me in trouble,

or I can rent it out, when I don't need it.

But now and then I go to a party, get drunk,

and the next morning I can't for the life of me

remember what I did with it.

First I looked around my apartment, and I couldn't find it.

So I called up the place where the party was,

they hadn't seen it either.

I asked them to check the medicine cabinet

'cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes

But not this time.

So I told them if it pops up to let me know.

I called a few people who were at the party,

but they were no help either.

I was starting to get desperate.

I really don't like being without my penis for too long.

It makes me feel like less of a man,

and I really hate having to sit down every time I take a leak.

After a few hours of searching the house,

and calling everyone I could think of,

I was starting to get very depressed,

so I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast.

Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place,

where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street,

I saw my penis lying on a blanket

next to a broken toaster oven.

Some guy was selling it.

I had to buy it off him.

He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen.

I took it home, washed it off,

and put it back on. I was happy again. Complete.

People sometimes tell me I should get it permanently attached,

but I don't know.

Even though sometimes it's a pain in the ass,

I like having a detachable penis.
