That MoS had a rotten rating even before it freaking released worries me greatly... but, dammit, it's Superman so I have to obey the call despite my reservations.
One question about it here, how's the theme/soundtrack sound - are they anything at all like the Classics?
I kept waiting (and hoping) to hear little strains of John Williams' Superman theme mixed in, but to no avail.
I far as I could tell there is really no Fan-fare theme in this movie at all.
I'd be hard-pressed to be able to tell someone that I could remember the music, there's nothing really that stands out in my mind.
(and I love music of all kinds dearly)
Again, it's probably attune to the fact that todays younger audiences seem to feel more akin to all things macabre and solemn than I do.
It'll probably be a huge hit with folks under twentyfive.

Zimmer purposefully left out the trumpet fanfare. Its a hard reboot like Batman Begins was for Batman. You look at Superman Returns which was a homage to the classic films of the 70's and 80's Superman. And where is it now? A mediocre success that never got a sequel. With the director and writers (the same writer, director, producers of X-Men 1 and 2) all distancing themselves as far back as 2008 from any potential sequel. With Bryan Singer himself admitting the flaws of his movie and regrets.
