Spacey looks aces as Luthor, btu I still have worries other Routh and Bosworth. The Pirates trailer has me far more amped. Davy Jones plays the organ with his beard, fer cryin' out loud!
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Geez, is that the kid from "Not Another Teen Movie" as Jimmy Olson?
EDIT: The same kid from "Jungle 2 Jungle" too? Amazing.
(edited by Mr. Boffo on 4.5.06 0656) In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.
I'm a little disappointed that they're going the Hackman route with the Luthor character (as far as the trailer indicates anyway), but that's swayed by my love of the character in the JLU series and what D.C. Comics has done with him in the past year. Spacey's one of my favorite actors though, so I believe he's good enough to change my mind once I see the movie.
What does bother me, though, is Lois Lane's character having a kid. With someone else! For me, it takes some of the sting out of her character, who in this movie seems too young to be a career-obsessed no-nonsense chick with a kid. But more importantly, it's not Kal-El's. And if it is, then Kal-El has an illegitimate child - BLASPHEMY!
Just a minor complaint, and I'm holding out hope that the actual movie will justify the presence of the child.
TO BILL BRASKY!
My LiveJournal, where you can read tons of stuff that you don't give a crap about.
So I "saw" this movie tonight (ha ha ha ha). Kinda neat, if you're into horribly dark things. And I'm not, usually, but I tried to maintain a proper mental/emotional distance from the film, and was rewarded.
