Thought I was tricky when I found a stream of (what i THOUGHT was) the new Superman movie.
I’ve been a huge fan of Smallville since its first season and watched it religiously until it finally wrapped up after, what, like 12 seasons or something. This was a great show, although they did have a fairly high soap opera factor, which is likely essential for a television show to succeed I guess.
I got about a third of the way through and I found myself talking to the movie. I do this when I like the movie/show. Something like, “of course the couplings failed” or “uh oh”. And then superman saves a plane with a missing wing from crashing into a baseball stadium. So American. But I gave out a great big “whoop!”. Incredible.
Here I am though, bragging while I’m watching about how I’m all over this new movie, my friends resentful calling me a spoiler.
When I imdb’d it, I was like, Lawrence Fishbourne isn’t playing Perry White. It took a couple of days for me to realize I watched a Superman from 2006. WTF? I thought I was so much cooler than that.
So I guess the plus side, there is a whole other Superman movie to enjoy. Although Kevin Costner? Really?
