I haven't had a chance to read through the entire thread, but I DID see the movie tonight.
I've been a Superman fan since I was 5 years old. I enjoyed the Reeve movies (yes, even IV, but that was when I was a kid lol) and didn't find Returns as bad as people thought it was.
But THIS movie....is the Superman film I've been waiting for. Gave it an A. Can't wait to see what they do next with the franchise.
