Man of Steel..

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?
