Superman Returns was nerd-irific!
I really liked Brandon Routh as the Man of Steel. The opening action sequence was amazing! Bryan Singer's idea to make the film in the line of Richard Donner's Superman was the right one. It was an optimistic superhero film true to the spirit of its predecessor. Poor James Marsden is doomed to play the "other" man in Bryan Singer films.
Man, when the credits zoomed outwards with the John Williams theme playing, I had flashes to my childhood watching the original film and it's sequel. I remember as a kid people cheering in the theater when Superman shows up to fight Zod and crew in Metropolis. Let's hear it for Big Blue!
