I saw it last night and it was pretty good. I was not a fan of Spacey as Lex Luthor, but besides that I enjoyed myself. I wouldn't put it up there with, say Spiderman 2 or Batman Begins (two superhero movies I reallllly liked), but I would put it slightly behind them and ahead of the X-men trilogy.



And they showed a Spiderman 3 preview, and holy balls, it looks incredible! ;-D

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Glad you liked it though. ;-D


My thoughts exactly.

Plus, how can anyone like Superman? I mean... bullets bounce off the guy's eye. He's a garbage superhero. :-b
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

It was a pretty decent movie. Nowhere near as good as Batman Begins, but Batman is a better hero (notice I didn't say super, as Batman has no real powers besides money) anyways. Spacey was funny as Luthor, mostly due to the "WRONG" part that has been circulating throughout the internet.

Spoiler:

The bank robbery with the Gatling gun made no sense. They just happened to rob a bank with a gatling gun attached to the roof, or did they bring it with them, screw it up there, and then rob the bank?

hmm. before reading people's opinions i was undecided whether to watch it or not, and now ... still undecided.

is it a good movie to bring a girlfriend to? maybe that'll be the tiebreaker for me between a rental and going to watch it.

batman begins was finally batman done right. i hate joel shumauker or whatever his name is spelled. i hope he never desecrates any other people's ideas ever again.

spiderman movies are quite good for super hero movies i think. when i first read that venom was going to be in it, ;-D . but topher grace? :-t :~( :-t :~( :-P . but i guess with the way sam raimi's been spot on about almost everything in the previous 2 spiderman movies, i should give him the benefit of the doubt.

x-men 1 was ok. 2 was good. 3 sucked. clunky, awkward, ridiculous.
