Hey, I liked Phantom Menace too. I am a very forgiving viewer. Superman is probably my favorite fictional character so I do not think that anything could damped my enthusiasm.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

We put too much value in trailers. For good and bad. Ultimately we see a film and we like it or we don't. Its just advertising. You go to a new restaurant, try a new food. You try something new based on curiosity. Whether from ads, a reviews. or suggestion of a friend. Often you may find out you don't like it or are disappointed.

Often we find new things we like and hate without any knowledgeable. People, places, and things. I have found on cable old movies I love by accident I had never heard of. Ones I hated too.

I remember people being pumped because of the Superman Returns trailer.... Just saying...
I loved SR, but I'd say this has the much stronger teaser. Both have that same kind of quiet, reverent tone, but you can really sense just how much bigger and more epic in scope this movie will be.

Plus, it has Superman getting punched through a building.

Of course a good trailer can lead to a disappointing movie (and vice versa), but it's still far better for a movie to have good reaction to its trailers in terms of building buzz. It's just an early step, but you'd rather have that first step go well rather than result in a stumble.
Yeah I always think back to the excellent teaser for Bay's Pearl Harbor, with the shots of the Japanese Zeros flying in over the small town and the people looking up in wonder....

It's easy to make something seem deep and moving and profound with the right music playing over it. Unfortunately as we know, the movie itself was nowhere near as good.

I learned that fanbois ought to take it all less seriously and maybe go outside, throw a Frisbee around sometimes.
I play Frisbee Golf on my Wii.

I love the Phantom Menace. Didn't require any lowered expectations either.

Well, I'm just hoping that my sneak showing of TDKR in a few days has this trailer. Otherwise I'll have to wait for a quality site to post it online.
Same here. You going to the Citrix presentation as well? I'll warn ya. When they did this last year with Captain America, there were no previews.
Yep, the Citrix demo + sneak. I'm likely to be zoned out just waiting for the movie. Maybe I'll remember something important. Best part, I get to bill this as "working time"!! Paid to watch TDKR.
I wasn't able to do the Cap one but at the Tron: Legacy one they showed one trailer at least.

I'm assuming the "we" he's referring to are fans in general.

I am sure that is what he means. I just don't like generalizations such as this that attempts to speak for everyone.

Only I can make that distinction to whether or not I am overly relying on trailers.

That sounds dumb as shit. People criticize Singer for not having Supes throw a single punch, but you can also go too far the other way.

Well Superman punching humans would be a bit of an overkill, wouldn't it?


I was disappointed that they didn't have Superman defend himself properly against Luthor's thugs on Kryptonite Island. It would have been something to see that Superman can still hold his ground even without superpowers. I dislike the portrayal that every time he loses his powers he turns into a pussy wimp.

I'm as skeptical as anyone about this movie, but that description actually has potential. I just hope Supes isn't taken out by a slow-moving bus.

Well the idea seemed to be that the kryptonite sapped pretty much ALL his energy. Even standing up was a huge struggle.

Personally I loved the powerful and heartbreaking way that scene played out. My only complaint is that we didn't get to see Supes get back at Luthor and his thugs later on. The villains were either conveniently crushed by falling debris or ran out of gas and got stuck on an island.

Not exactly the most satisfying way to end things.
