What is it about superhero movies that captivates us and draws us to the theater? Is it our own personal quest to elimate 'bad guys' and wish for 'world peace'?
Every year, a highly anticipated movie comes out that has everyone excited - Spiderman, X-Men, Batman, Superman.
This year is Superman's year.
Unfortunately, I've gotten caught up in the craze. Again.
I was a little bit worried that I would be disappointed in Superman Returns, but after sitting in a crowded, sold out movie house last night, I'm glad I did.
In my opinion, no one is better than the late Christopher Reeve, who as a child, I idolized and watched over and over again in Superman and Superman II. But, Brandon Routh makes a very good Superman. It also helps that he's handsome and sexy.
I was also very impressed with Lois Lane, played by Kate Bosworth. I loved how she played the role. Of course, it will help if she doesn't go looney like Margot Kidder did. Whoa!
And let's not forget Kevin Spacey, whose portrayal of Lex Luther was serious. It's hard to top Gene Hackman, you know.
I won't spoil it for those who read my page, but I will say that I liked the movie very much. For those of you planning to see it this weekend, let me know what you think.
