How Do You Know When Hollywood Is Out of Ideas?

Oh, you'll just know.

You mean the remake of the Poseiden Adventure wasn't a tipoff?

Actually, from what I've heard, this latest Superman movie is supposed to be decent and more like the 1940's version of Superman or something. Maybe I'm cross referencing movies.

"After a long visit to the planet Krypton, the Man Of Steel returns to earth..."

WTF? Krypton was destroyed. That's the whole reason Superman ended up on earth. That's waht kryptonite is - fragments of the destroyed Krypton. How the hell can he visit a planet that's not there??? It's like Princess Leia taking a weekend holiday on Alderon.

Krispy Kreme rules!

Someday, Foot, you will find yourself in Winona, and you'll say to yourself "okay, I'll this Bleodow's bakery, but there's no way they're as good as KK," and then you'll have your first Bleodow's experience and you'll think "Wow, Ryan really is right about all things."

OK smart guy - now please rectify the Krypton paradox I posed.

Okay, but you know you're looking forward to seeing Kevin Spacey do Lex Luthor. Gene Hackman was good, but Kevin Spacey does "morally compromised" better than anyone.

The thing is, generally speaking, I just don't think anyone besides Christopher Reeve can wear that color of spandex and still manage to act. Looking at the production stills, the new guy just looks like a retard. I know Reeve didn't exactly come off looking like Hamlet but there was just something about his face that made it possible to take him sort of seriously while he was wearing that ridiculous costume. Not so much Brandon Routh.

Here's a much better origin of Superman (complete with the news that his father was an absolute idiot), Pinkerton's Superman Origin.

Never mind how they can portray Superman's visit to Krypton. I want to know how they brought the old Jor-El, Jimmy Olsen, and Lois Lane back from the dead to act in this movie.
