No, no. Neither your nor my recommendation of seeing a movie again came from how much we liked/disliked it. It's a matter of criticizing properly, on the base of accuracy.

If you think, as you have said, that once is enough, then I don't need to see MOS again before giving an opinion about it.

How so, so it was bad for Singer to put Superman beyond the old good guy vs bad guy scenario?

It's not that *I* saw it that way.

What I described is not my subjective opinion. It is what happened at the end of the movie. And is why saying the ending was depressing is just inaccurate.

No, you need to re-watch it in order to discuss it properly.

Maybe so, but still is not universally acclaimed. Reviews were now polarized in a way they never were with SR. And giving Superman a sequel where he has to share the stage with both Batman and Wonder Woman (if I heard that well?) is not a sign of victory. But bthe money was good enough and they cannot keep rebooting.

I visited this forum, as many others, but never posted here when the movie came out because it was a mess. I posted back then in a forum that no longer exists (BlueTights), but I do remember posters here being banned out of so much bashing anyone who had liked the movie.

Again, it's when you say things that didn't happen in the movie, and for that reason alone, when I feel compelled to correct you.
