The first Donner movie was adult for it's time and the first Act is very serious and still holds up pretty well but there's definitely some hokeyness to it. The fact that they say Sugar Honey Ice Tea in it would have definitely upped the rating to PG-13 back then due to language, in the first film I mean.

I see nothing wrong with PG-13. Superman is just as "PG-13" as Batman....or should be at least.

Not saying that at all. At least I hope that's not what you thought I was saying. To me, action and violence can be worlds apart.
Definitely agree on the story and characters. For the most part. We all know big action (even if done mostly terribly *Transformers*) sells to the GA.

I could've LOVED Prometheus... If the magical "can do anything according to how we want the plot to progress black goo" made any sense.
It was so good looking.
