Comments on movies, comic books, and life
Seven for Seven. I rock! BTW- I just watched the directors cut of Superman the Movie a few weeks ago. I had no idea they had added so much extra dialogue, Krypton scenes, Supes/Jor-el scenes, etc. It was like watching a different movie.
Hey Jackie: You get an 'A'Thanks for the tip about the director's cut on the Supes movie. I'll check it out.
Seven for seven. I remember buying all of the different Superman comics after he supposedly died. The ones with the "Superboy," the "Eradicator," and others. I was happy to see the comic that had him on the front with the words "Back for good!"Man, I love comics. I'll have to go downstairs and find those now.By the way, wikipedia has some really good info on Superman. Check it out if you haven't already.
I'm pretty sure 75 just cheated off Jackie...Yep, the resurrection of Superman was interesting to watch. The writers had several ideas of how to do it, so they did them all--a clone of Supes and Luthor they called Superboy, the Man Of Steel, which was a teke-off of WV steel-driving legend John Henry (and turned into a movie starring Shaq) and a couple of others whose names I can't recall. The Man, though, was coming back, we all knew it.
3. But then I'm a Marvel Comics guy.
100%, though I wonder if I would've gotten 'em all right, had I not watched that "Look Up In the Sky!" documentary a couple of weeks ago. Oh, who am I kidding? I know my Superman stuff! ;) Though I generally prefer the cartoon and movie versions of Superman, two excellent comic book stories, if you haven't read them are:"For the Man Who Has Everything" and "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow," both written by Alan Moore and can be found here.
