The movie is coming soon and I just noticed that the official site has been vandalized by Lex.

http://supermanreturns.warnerbros.com/

The best part is the wallpaper section.

Edit: And the japanese website has a trailor that's different then the US one.

I don't know. The link to a Lex Luthor Returns myspace page is pretty hilarious.

lol. That was funny. Ingenious gimmick.

I rented the first movie from Netflix and watched it last night. So weird how much I've forgotten! Fuuuun. I love Lois' trouble with spelling. "There's no 'z' in brassiere, Lois!"

I still chuckle at the reversing-the-world bit. It cheerfully violates laws of the universe and then breaks its own rule, 'cuz shouldn't time go forward again (thus reinstating the after-events of the quake) when he makes the world turn in the right direction again?

Yes, but he takes it far enough back that he can then take it forward without killing her. This is all based on science.

you're kidding right? That particular solution was even stupider than The Quest for Peace. It's scenes like this one that make people think comics rot your brain.

Seriously, good movie except for that one detail, which someone pulled out of their backside

and, on an similar but unrelated note,

This, my friends, is a hilarious, undoctored log of a chat I had this afternoon in an LDS chatroom on IRC. The only changes I made were formatting for legibility. I cut off irrelevant material from the beginning and removed the time stamps, but I neither changed spellings nor deleted lines during the span of that log.

Apparently, I'm going to hell.

No, because you see he went back in time and then changed the future events for himself in a new dimension!

You see, there is still a dead Lois somewhere in another world, and since the Superman of that dimension left his time to go to another time when Lois didn't die, he created two Earths, one where Lois is dead, Superman is gone and Lex rules the world, and one where the opposite is true.

It's all relativity, Time is a continuous forward motion of events. For Superman it continued to move forward even though it appeared to move backward for everyone else to him. While to everyone else they were still moving forward in thier respective times, he just went to another dimension that had the same events in a different part of time for them.

Thus we see that Superman is really willing to sacrifice a whole world to torment and despair as long as he...
A: doesn't have to look at it
B: gets the girl

......Or I guess it could just have been a really bad idea. It could go either way.

Precisely. Not that I'm a science whiz, but it irks me that the story had to fall back on a silly premise like that. Not that I don't think having him confront his failure (Lois' death) isn't a valuable scene in and of itself. Just too bad that the remedy was so... wobbly.

On the subject of Christ imagery, here's an interesting article from the Journal of Religion and Film.

We are going to TRY to go see this movie this Saturday at 1 PM for free at the Wright-Patt base movie theater. We're currently thinking we should should show up about 9 AM.

SE: Which network is that #lds on?

All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!
