New Superman vs New Batman

July 6, 2006 at 10:19 pm 1 comment

My opinion? (As if you care.) No contest. Not in a battle between them, like duh. Superman would kick Batman’s winged butt to the curb. But in terms of quality, the new Batman takes the bat scat.

I just saw the new Superman Returns movie and it was good. Lois Lane was a bit off, but still the movie had lots of appeal and it was a great story. Very entertaining and I never felt like I couldn’t wait for the movie to end, despite downing the 32 oz. bladder buster less than half way through the movie. But it was nothing even close to the dark-knight-kicks-butt movie that Batman Begins was. When it comes to comic book movies, they will all have to measure up to Christian Bale’s performance in Batman Begins.

BB was the most fantastic comic book movie ever made. I think that what made that movie was it’s total believability. Everything in the movie felt like it could really happen. There weren’t any shiny-roundy-and-couldn’t-possibly-be-real props like in the previous Batman movies. The Batmobile? Come on. Please. The tumbler? Oh hell yeah.

The new Superman, Brandon Routh, is pretty good as a Superman. It was a bit hard to follow in the beginning as it’s sort of an in-between movie, rather than a sequel or a prequel. It picked up though pretty quickly though and didn’t fail to meet expectations. (I have learned though not to go in expecting too much.)One thing I would note is that I don’t feel like it told much of a story. It was a short clip in the life of a few big characters, unlike Batman, which told the story of a man’s life and rise to super-hero status.

But overall, I enjoyed it and felt like I got my money’s worth. And I paid full price.

    Great review!

    Batman Begins was better ,true, but the new Lois more than just off, she was a tired flat tire.

  • Uhh.. What are you doing? July 4, 2006
    So I was staying with a friend when the family and I went to SoCal on a trip. My friends were gracious enough to let us stay in their bed while they slept on the couch. One night around 2 or so, my buddy got up and had to go to the bathroom. Forgetting that he had let us stay in their bedroom, he came waltzing back into their bedroom. (No, we weren’t “in the […]

  • My son’s friend’s feet stink! July 3, 2006
    So I was staying overnight with the parent’s of a friend when I was on a trip a while back. Unfortunately, I inherited some of the worst parts of my father – mainly foot stank. So, I was at their house in the evening after a long day of being trapped in my shoes. I slipped my shoes off and placed them next to the desk in the bedroom they were letting me stay […]

    I came home the other day to find a flyer stuffed in my door frame from a local politician. I don’t like people coming to my door to sell stuff. It’s just rude. But then to have a professional liar try to come and convince me that he’s the guy to vote for, give me a break. Not only was he from the wrong party (I typically align myself with one side of the ai […]

  • Fat-ass thinks I’m cute! July 1, 2006
    My friend Kendall and I were flying to San Diego for a business trip and we had to take off in one of those prop-job planes out of our rinky-dink airport here is Bellingham. So we get on this plane whose seats are barely wider than one of Paris Hilton’s thighs and Kendall and I are a couple full size fat-asses. We were seated next to each other on one side, […]
