A nice moment I experienced recently was at Kroger during the Christmas season. I bought a little Superman ornament and the young girl behind the register asked me if I had seen the new film. I replied yes and asked her if she had seen it and if so what did she think. She responded yes. Her complaint was a common one in regards to the ending battle and the destruction. Her next comment is the one that brought a huge smile to my face. "I liked the last movie Superman Returns better." As a fan of that film it was nice to see someone acknowledge it.

That said MOS had it's moments, but for me it failed on several levels. I had hopes for the sequel, but given that the movie is being stuffed with several other DC heroes, my optimism has faded.
I personally loved MOS and find myself liking it more and more with repeat viewings but I still love SR as well. It was the movie that got me reading Superman comics and I will always love it for that. For me its just still a good movie as well though, I still watch it around once a year and its still one of the best CBM's for me, though it seems to fall down a place or two every year.
