Have both returned. I from Los Angeles, Superman from where ever he went. Over the weekend I did manage on seeing Superman Returns. A friend who works in the film industry insisted on seeing it. He's been banging away on Warner Brother films for a while believed it important to support the company. I personally felt he just really wanted to see Superman and didn't want to let on he is that nerdy. The movie in my opinion was not great. Superman is not a complex character. He's basically a good guy with no faults which makes him pretty boring to watch. I found myself rooting for Lex and was extremely disappointed when he lost. There were also a lot of messianic parallels in the movie, which is frankly just not to my taste. The film however is technically excellent. It is summer and in many places of the world it is also pretty darn hot. I imagine there are worse ways to spend an afternoon.
