Film "This is a glum, lackluster movie in which even the big effects sequences seem dutiful instead of exhilarating. The newsroom of the Daily Planet, filled with eccentricity and life in the earlier movies, now seems populated by corporate drones. Jimmy Olsen, the copy boy, such a brash kid, seems tamed and clueless. Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) has lost her dash and pizzazz, and her fiance, Richard White (James Marsden), regards her like a deer caught in the headlights. Even the editor, Perry White (Frank Langella), comes across less like a curmudgeon, more like an efficient manager." -- Ebert slams Superman Returns.

Horrifyingly not seen this yet with work prevailing against me. Is Ebert right? Either way, get well soon Rog.


  1. He's wrong about Superman Returns. Very wrong.

  2. I'd say he's half right. I'm going to post a review later this week. Bosworth was *awful*, the rest of them a bit lacklustre.
