How about this? Neither one of us needs to see either movie again. Your opinion is yours and that can be based off one viewing or one hundred viewings. The same with mine.

I thought the elements added dragged the story down in a very depressing way. It was not what I would have expected from a Superman movie, and it certainly wasn't what I was expecting after waiting 20 years for that movie.

It is subjective. Others didn't see it that way and they saw the same movie you did. Everything both you and I are saying is subjective.

No I don't. I've been discussing it just fine for years.

But bthe money was good enough and they cannot keep rebooting.
I would say what does it matter. SR had more critical acclaim, but NO sequel. It's all relative I suppose.

Sure...I'll buy that.

What have I said that didn't happen in the movie? What inaccuracy have you felt the need to correct? Please point this out to me, or drop this sanctimonious act. You like the movie and I don't. It's as simple as that.
