Lois seemed pretty out of character with the Kidder version.If you want to agree with Singer's conjecture,that's fine.I can't see Kidder's version ever acting like that...then again Jimmy Olson was never a goofball the likes of which we see in this film either.I guess,I really don't see ANY of the cast acting like their counterparts in all honesty.

Rules changed right there! Kryptonite doesn't need to be near Superman anymore.
Nah,you're reaching a bit there.The Tar-Kryptonite was "loosely" influenced by Red Kryptonite in the comics,which doesn't need to stay in contact with him to effect him.

Green Kryptonite,however has never been shown to change it's effects on Supes."This substance is lethal".If you like Singer rewriting the Kryptonite rulebook,that's fine.But there was no precedent for the changes.They make no sense given the film's internal logic.You can spin it any way you want,but it won't make it fly.(so to speak )

It doesn't function as a weakness in the same way.


I get you like the film and if you want to be it's lone apologist,that's fine.I probably spent more time discussing the movie than I did watching it,at this point. Love the film or hate it,there comes a time when you gotta move on.

All in all,I say it's just a "meh" film.I liked some of the actors (Routh & Spacey) the return of Johnny Williams score and some of the spectacle.Unfortunately,the story wasn't up to par and it remains one of those films that gather dust on the shelf.Truth be told MOS is only marginally better as a film.The best Superman film is still STM after all these years.

Haha...there you go twisting words again. I love watching movies I enjoy a second, third...or even a fourth time. I don't like to re-watch movies I don't like, which is why I have only seen SR once.

You know though... At this point I think you should think about watching those movies again. You cannot seem to stick to the topic at hand, which is Superman Returns. You bring any and every other Superman movie (and non-Superman movies like the TDKT) into the equation, but it's clear you are not knowledgeable about them.

I freely admit to only watching SR once in the theaters seven years ago. I have not watched it again because I don't like it. Yet, I just re-watched STM, SII, and SIII. I watched MOS again yesterday too. However, you don't see me bringing them up all the time in this conversation. I stick to SR. You don't. So I think in this case you should watch all the movies again because you are the one that keeps bringing them up out of context to prove your points about SR. I, on the other hand, do not do that.

Quote:
Now, broad generalization? When I gave an specific example? Lois was portrayed as superficial. She despised Clark and pitied him (according to you because he behaved clumsy) while adoring Superman for his looks and super-powers. But another woman in the same universe, that wasn't superficial, Lana Lang, appreciated Clark the way he was. Relevant example.
You are backtracking again by saying Lois despised Clark, and you are literally using anything you can to try and support this weak argument when there is no evidence to support you. You are not even sounding logical anymore because you're not being truthful. You are simply twisting facts.

Quote:
Well, thanks to me you have admitted so many times that you were wrong (when you asked me to see movies again even though you don't believe it's necessary, when you realized there's action in SR after saying there wasn't merely because you personally didn't like it - difference between liking something and its existence - same thing with uplifting moments, when you realized you had actually liked the movie, when you realized you had haterphobia being an admitted hater yourself) that it brings some satisfaction that you stand corrected and learn about the movie and yourself.
Hehahahahaha....you are funny! You think you have achieved all that, and yet I still think Superman Returns is/was the biggest piece of garbage. You should pat yourself on the back and give yourself a hug if you can.

Quote:
In fact, there wasn't a point. First time you get it without further explanation from me. Good.
Great! We might actually get somewhere today.

Quote:
Because there are many people like yourself who bash the movie on the basis of wrong facts, wrong definitions, wrong recollections and pure hate that some light had to be shed on this thread.
LOL....well you have met someone that I'm sure you didn't want to meet because it's my duty to trash this movie whenever and however I can. I don't care if you don't like it.

Well, SR is based on Donner's take, if you didn't like Kidder's Lois, then it's not about how SR continued that take, but only a matter of taste. And yes, Jimmy Olsen was something of a goofball in ST, but Sam Huntington's was funnier. And Routh's Clark and Superman were too close to the Reeve's version to deny it.

I've read about red kryptonite but never heard that thing of not being in contact. not to mention that SIII's red kryptonite was... not red.

In this case, Singer proposed that the solar power, known to give Superman his strength (there's the precedent) can help him to resist a little longer. Plus, I also talked about how Superman's powers in the Donnerverse can grow when in certain extreme situations (which is a cliche to many characters, Batman included). That's why he can fly much faster in STM when Lois is dead.

Or because he didn't know how his body worked in those first years. Again, Superman in the Donnerverse is not exactly the same as in comics. In fact, in some comics he is not the same as in other comics.

Which makes Superman far weaker. Funny thing is that you complaint if Superman is to strong with kryptonite (so he lifts the island) and then you complain if Superman is too weak with kryptonite (so he's beaten).

I can agree with the last part (oh, and about Routh and Spacey).

Yes, when you're talking about a movie that's a sequel to other two, then those two are going to be brought up. Other posters have brought Nolan's Batman and Raimi's Spider-man. Freedom of speech. You want to stick to SR yourself? Do it, but the rest will do as we please.

Lois pitied Clark and never appreciated him but she did with Superman, in spite of being the same man. Fact. Other woman in the same universe wasn't like that. The point? Lois is more about the surface when it's about men, at least in the Donnerverse.

It would behoove you to watch them again if you're going to reference them in your arguments. Take that as a piece of friendly advice.

Donner was not instrumental in SIII and SIV. Most do not include SIII or SIV when talking about the Donnerverse. Obviously you do, which I won't debate. I still disagree Lois was superficial. Your argument of her only wanting the "blue prince" is not valid. The feelings between her and Superman are mutual.

They are generally brought up because you have brought them up, like you did with SIII and SIV earlier. No one had mentioned them. You did! You brought them up out of nowhere, and what's sad is the things you mentioned regarding them are invalid, incorrect, or wrongly interpreted, which is what you claim everyone else is doing with SR.

This is pointless to whatever point you're trying to prove about SR. I don't even understand what the point is any longer. I think you are saying Singer had a reason to make SR's Lois a cold and unfeeling *****. I think that is what you are saying, but the examples you have used are from SIII and SIV, and those movies are not relevant to SR. Singer did not even consider them, and they are not considered sequels to SR. Only STM and SII are.

I refute outright in STM and SII Lois is superficial (I dispute this for SIII and SIV also, but they are not relevant to the discussion about SR...so who cares). I'll do you one better, Senator. Can you name an event that occurred in STM or SII where she is superficial? Don't just say she ignored Clark because she did not ignore him, and the dynamic of the "love triangle" necessitated how she treated him. What did she do that is so superficial?

I request you do the same when mentioning other movies. Also, what have I said that is inaccurate about SR? You frequently say this, and the only thing I can imagine you think is inaccurate is the amount of hyperbole I use in regards to the movie. I have said nothing inaccurate about the movie. You just don't like the fact that I think it sucks and is garbage.

I'm really confused what the argument is here.

Is one saying Bosworth's Lois was a continuation of Kidder's and vice versa? Because those two interpretations are like night and day. Routh continued what Reeve did in some respects whereas Bosworth's Lois was a colder interpretation than Kidder's was.

Clark and Lois in SIII and SIV were dramatically different than in STM and SII? No. No matter the director, the characters remained portrayed similarly.

Superman loving Lois back doesn't mean she was not superficial.

I assure you, if people are discussing TDKR, Batman Begins and TDK are often mentioned. Same as with any sequel.

And no one needs someone else to bring up a subject (specially if it's connected to the current one) to be the first one. Why would I need the permission or precedent of someone else?

If anything they say "SR was a carbon copy of STM!!!" That has happened many times: there you have it.

No, STM and SII are enough.

But, as you know but pretend you don't, SIII and SIV was to make a counterpoint to a statement of yours. Your inability to reply to it makes you stretch this to the point where the point was made so long ago you pretend you don't remember now.

Oh the discussion was over pages ago. Charl is only trying to avoid a direct answer and keep dragging this.

Much like the rest of SR, it's a sequel to STM and SII but it's not either visually or tonally the same. But I said that Lois Lane, the way it's portrayed as impulsive and reckless in this universe, would go with another man quickly after Superman leaves without saying good-bye out of spite.

Lois is barely in SIII. Her role was reduced because she and Hackman took issue with the way the Salkinds treated Donner. SIII and SIV are not part of the Donnerverse. You're being untruthful and inaccurate by saying they are, but I know you don't care about the truth or accuracy when it comes to defending SR. It takes a pack of lies and falsehoods to do so. You have proven that quite sufficiently and will continue to do so it seems.

If you are going use other movies to bolster your arguments then at least be accurate with the examples you are using. It's clear you have limited knowledge of the movies you are citing. It would behoove you to become more knowledgeable about these movies, so you didn't say so many inaccurate and untruthful things.

Again, I asked you for an example from either of those movies. Your inability to reply with an example shows you don't have a point, and are just spouting words with no accuracy or logic behind them. You make bold statements like Lois is superficial, but cannot produce one example from either of the four movies you have cited. So it's hard to remember your point, Senator. You do so little to prove it. Again, you're filled with nothing but inaccuracies and untruthfulness, and will say anything to defend SR. I don't even think you really like the movie. You just enjoy talking to me...lol.

Then by your theory everyone in STM, SII, SIII and SIV is superficial because they also failed to recognize Clark Kent as Superman, and also fail for his clumsy, goofy act. You may call Lois superficial because she was just as blind as everyone else, but if you want to use that label then use it fairly.

SR is still a CBM failure. It's still piece of ****ing garbage. It's still the worse ever! It still sucks! I don't think the movie is uplifting and the action sucked!

lol...at this point it has to be the absolute worse for me to keep talking about...lol. Seriously though, it's not a bad film. I have said that when I'm being more rational, but it's not a good Superman movie. It's especially not a good movie or story after a 20 year absence.

Yes, you were inaccurate about saying there were no action or uplifting scenes in SR. I correctd you and you admitted you were wrong. So, technically you're wrong about not being wrong now. You've created 'Wrongception.'

Lol, SIII and SIV had the same actors, music and tone than STM and SII, and connects to the same story. There's still Brad and Lana from Smallville and the Lois knowing Superman's identity is hinted. All facts. Stand corrected.

Even more: Superman Returns has different actors, different tone and different visuals and is still considered part of the Donnerverse.

Lois barely being in SIII doesn't negate the fact that she still existed and is the same one as in STM and SII.

1) She has one date (it wasn't even a date but an interview) with Superman, and she falls in love immediately and is ready to give him her love ("Here I am, like a kid out of school. Holding hands with a god. Wondering why you are... all the wonderful things you are. If you need to be loved... here I am.")

Really sounds like the type of girl who would bed Richard on their first date, does she not?


2) There's an a-bomb in Paris, hostages and all. But Lois trespasses the security perimeter and put the whole operation in jeopardy. Why? Yes, she's dreaming about her Pulitzer, so that's more important than everyone's lives.

3) Lois knows the way she is: "Yes, I am selfish when it comes to you. I am selfish. And I'm jealous of the whole world." And not only that. At one poiint she loses it: "Would you stop? Don't you know that this is killing me? Do you know what it's like to have you come in here, every morning, and not be able to talk to you? Not be able to… show I have any feelings for you, not… be able to tell anyone I know who you are? I don't even know what to call you!"

Flash news, Lois: Clark is feeling the exact same. It's not all about you.

Selfish, irresponsible, superficial, reckless. That's Donner's Lois Lane. Get to know her before talking about her properly.

On the contrary, you haven't provided any good example. You say "Lois is not like that" and there's not a hint of back-up for your random statements.

You do so little to prove it. Again, you're filled with nothing but inaccuracies and untruthfulness, and will say anything to defend SR. I don't even think you really like the movie. You just enjoy talking to me...lol.
I already gave you examples for Lois's superficiality, selfishness and recklessness in this very post. And you're fully aware of Lana and Clark, which enraged you so much that you had to dismiss SIII and SIV as part of the same franchise as STM and SII, which is wrong from every point of view.

I don't remember everybody in love with one and not the other. That's because it didn't happen.

I think its a decent film, not great, not bad just above average but it has some great moments in it.

Lois barely being in SIII doesn't negate the fact that she still existed and is the same one as in STM and SII.
*shakes head* If that is the way you wish to view it...fine by me. I will not correct you even though I think you are wrong. The fact here is SR is not related to SIII and SIV in anyway story wise since Singer said he did not include them.

In STM she's flying with him after he invited her to go flying. He's handsome and a god. He's depicted in the movie to be a god with God-like powers. He's already saved her life. She falls in love with him. Big deal. He was a god. That's not superficial. That's reasonable.

Now I'm not sure what you mean by bringing up Richard and their sleeping together on the first date. I think SR's Lois was a ***** and she was cold. I don't care what happened with her and Richard. So I'm not sure why you're bringing that up.

What does that have to with being superficial? That is a woman who wants to succeed so bad she is willing to put her life at risk to achieve it. She's willing to put her life on the line to get the story. That in fact is the opposite of superficial because she is so driven and dedicate she goes that extra mile.

She's hurting and feeling deeply. I fail to see superficial here either since she's clearly expressing her hurt and frustration. It's a difficult situation, and it's causing her emotional pain which she's expressing. How is that superficial? She's not trying to make it about her. She's trying to understand, and is clearly not able to do so. She's trying to rationalize being in love with a god, and she can't. That's not superficial. If it were superficial she would act like everything was A-Okay, but she's not doing that because she's not superficial.

Lois genuinely does try to help Clark come out of his shell. Let's face it. His goofy act makes everyone around him treat him like a boob. She tries to help him sound a bit less goofy, and she puts her life on the line to save them from a mugger. These are not the actions of a superficial woman. She cares deeply for Clark, and she frequently tries to talk to him to get him to open up more. She's being genuine in her concern because she considers him a friend and wants to help him better himself. She does this in STM and SII. Watch the scene when she's juicing oranges. Watch the scene just before and when they are being mugged.

I dismissed SIII and SIV because they had nothing to do with SR. You were responding to a point about SR's Lois and I responded the characterization she was based on (STM and SII) defied your description of her being superficial. I agreed on the impulsive and recklessness. You then later brought up SIII and SIV to say she was superficial, which was not even the point of the discussion in the first place. We were talking about SR's Lois, and she is based on STM and SII.

I wasn't enraged. I was confused because SIII and SIV were not what was being discussed. You just pulled them out to support your "she's superficial" claim. Yet, that doesn't really support that claim either, but again SIII and SIV had nothing to do with what we were originally talking about until you brought them up. Go back and read your posts, Senator.

The point is no one was "in love" with Clark. Everyone treated him like a boob. There are plenty of scenes in STM and SII where he's frequently ignored and cast aside by everyone. It's part of the whole schtick of his disguise. It seems unfair to put the onus just on Lois when everyone treats him this way, and the movie itself wants to highlight that everyone does treat Clark that way.

"Son" is like another word for dude. I have a lot of friends from the East coast and they say "son" a lot. I mean nothing personal by it, and it's not meant to be an insult to you or your mother.

Now, I could respond with some little quip about your mom since you're obviously trying to say I'm "senile" for liking MOS, but I won't because I don't need to. Like I've said, you will say anything to defend SR, and I know you've already tried to report me for insulting you when I actually didn't, so I won't take that bait easily. I will say your mother must be a cool person even though she is senile (that's what you called her by the way).

He is not a god. Stand corrected.

And many people have religions with gods and few women actually fall in love with them.

He saw handsome, muscles and super-powers and she thought "I'm all for it." It's the kind of woman she is and that's my point.

So you decided to ignore when I said "Selfish, irresponsible, reckless"? Don't ignore it just because you have to admit it's true.

Of course she is dedicated, but when you put in danger a whole city just because you want to have personal glory that makes you selfish, irresponsible and reckless.

Superficial has to do, as I explained to you, with how she gets nuts about men that look good.

Both Lois and Superman are hurting and feeling deeply. But she is all about herself and her own personal suffer. Not once does she take Superman into consideration and she only demands answers and compensations:

"Don't you know that this is killing me?" Yes, dear. It's killing Superman too, don't you know? If you stopped thinking about yourself only, you'd do.

"Do you know what it's like to have you come in here, every morning, and not be able to talk to you? Not be able to... show I have any feelings for you," Yes, dear. Again, Superman feels the same so he does know.

I know plenty of superficial women. And they behave similarly to Lois Lane in the Donnerverse. Superficiality is not a hard concept to grasp or to recognize.

Yes, she is compassionate. Being superficial, irresponsible and reckless is just a side of her.

And she did nothing to save anyone from the mugger. In fact she made things worse. Because her selfishness, irresponsibility and recklessness made her feel she had to prove she was better, no matter if the guy shot his gun, which he did.

I disagree because SR's Lois was cold and a *****. I didn't find Kidder's Lois to be that way, and she especially wasn't that way with Superman. I also find the characterization of Lois to be off because of the vague history. Why is she cold to Superman? She was never cold to Superman, and it didn't make sense. She forgot about their time together in SII when he kissed her. So the characterization doesn't follow. Why is she acting like a cold ***** if she doesn't remember what happened?

I admitted she was reckless and impulsive. I might even go so far as to say she is irresponsible because she is reckless. I don't know about selfish that may be your interpretation of events and that's you, but I disagree whole heartedly with superficial. If that is the case then everyone who doesn't recognize Clark as Superman is superficial, so it's unfair to level that accusation just at her character.

I can't believe you're complaining about that maudlin scene after you've spent pages and pages highlighting how much you love the more mature themes of SR and it's relationship. She's distraught. He's distraught. They are both distraught and he makes the ultimate sacrifice of his love to put things back to rights. You should be loving that scene.

You have a very different take on that scene then I would say most other people have. I'm not sure why, but I think your interpretation of that scene is a bit off then how it was meant be viewed. Yet my point is someone who is superficial would not have the gumption to throw themselves into danger like she did. You may have a point about irresponsible and reckless, but not superficial.

But what was the point of doing that when the discussion at hand was about SR's Lois and SIII and SIV were not relevant. We were and are talking about Lois' characterization in SR, which is based off STM and SII, so again why mention SIII and SIV at all?

I never brought up anyone's mother, but if I offended you by calling you "son" then I apologize for that since it obviously caused you to bring up your own senile mother.

As for my haterphobia... What can I say? I never hated anything before Superman Returns, which was coincidentally when I started attracting a lot of haters to my "internet" person. I was hate-free up until that point...then this movie happened. I shall never be the same.

I didn't know it would give you such joy to correct my hyperbole, or that you would keep mentioning that over and over and over again. Had I know I would not have said those words. Notice I won't say them again.

One thing is for sure. I realize my words must give you extreme pleasure because you keep repeating them over and over and over again.

No, he's not a god. He doesn't create life, he's only the survivor of another plant.

In any case, that's irrelevant as to Lois's superficiality.

She forgot about their time together in SII when he kissed her. So the characterization doesn't follow. Why is she acting like a cold ***** if she doesn't remember what happened?
Kidder's Lois wasn't that way because Superman didn't leave her without saying good-bye. That's why she's cold to Superman in SR and that's explicitly said in the movie.

And even when she forgot what happened in SII, they might have started their relationship again before he left. But that wasn't well explained , which is one of my criticisms of SR.

If that is the case then everyone who doesn't recognize Clark as Superman is superficial, so it's unfair to level that accusation just at her character.
No, only those who fall immediately in love with him only because of how he looks and how powerful he is, even when they don't know the real man behind the surface.

Yes, and while Superman doesn't talk about his personal grief and is worried only about Lois's feelings, Lois does not do the same and keep rubbing her suffering on Superman and talking like she were the only one that's suffering.

I love the scene, but I can see who's being selfish and who is not.

Now, SR didn't go down to amnesia kissing or any last minute deux ex machina of the sort.

It's what happened. She dropped her purse on purpose so she could kick him. After doing it she just turns around without caring if the guy could shoot her (reckless) or whether Clark was going to react well or not. She just didn't care for Clark (cold and irresponsible).

And I quote myself: "Superficial has to do, as I explained to you, with how she gets nuts about men that look good."

We were exactly at the point where you stated that Lois's behavior towards him was natural given that Clark was clumsy and goofy. Lana disproves this.

Yes, we were. In fact it was you who was talking about how the goofiness in Clark defined the way Lois treated him. My point is that it's Lois's nature that does this.

Anyhoo, Superman is a god in the Donnerverse without a religion. He can create life. He can reverse time, and he can mind-wipe people by kissing them. That's just a few of things he can do though. The list keeps going if you want to include SIII and SIV. I won't do that because it's not relevant to the conversation. I'm not like you.

I guess in your view he's the only one who is not superficial because he sees that Superman is just an act, and is a complete sham! Right?

That's what you're really saying, Senator? Isn't it? I should have know...

A person who is superficial wouldn't risk their life. They're too superficial for that. You should watch the part of the scene before the mugging. Lois is brassy, so she got spunk, but...I don't think you can see that because your perception is colored.

But that had nothing to do with the conversation because we were talking about SR's Lois, who you admit and recognize is only based on STM and SII. What did that have to do with what we were discussing at the time? Forget the fact that what you said is not true. The answer is it didn't have anything to do with it. You brought it out because it was pointless to the discussion, but proved some trivial point not relevant to the discussion.

Kidder's Lois and Bostworth's Lois are the same, only portrayed by different actors. Someone else (Human Torch) said Lois would never jump onto another man so soon. I say she would.

Liking a movie (or anything) and sped time defending it is hardly an illness. But spending your time on hating... boy, that's serious.

I can read properly, but in the same breath you mention you don't like the vagueness... You mention how you like the fact Singer progressed the relationship beyond the usual, and that he added something different from what is normally shown. However, you fully recognize at the same time this relationship is built on a vague and unfounded foundation, which frankly makes no sense to its current state.

So, frankly Senator Pleasury, I don't need to learn to read properly. You need to learn to speak proper English. You also need to learn how to express a full and complete point without bringing up irrelevant ********, and being able to express a point like a sensible person who is literate and observant.

What do you think the president wanted him for in the first place? He wanted protection.

He was also superficial.

Because of his looks and super-powers. I'm not sure. If they're in love with god the way Lois is with Superman they're nutcases. Respectively.

A survivor from another planet that's far more powerful than humans. I had already said it.

Yes, because not mentioning what happened in between doesn't deny that Singer didn't solve everything by last minute deux ex machinas.

The President didn't want to have a long-time relationship as Lois did. Fact.

A person who is only superficial wouldn't risk their life. But Lois is also irresponsible and reckless.

Yes we did arrive to this point: where you stated that Lois's behavior towards him was natural given that Clark was clumsy and goofy. Lana disproves this. Yes, we were. In fact it was you who was talking about how the goofiness in Clark defined the way Lois treated him. My point is that it's Lois's nature that does this.

Liking a movie is not an illness. Spending your day hating who you are (an admitted hater) is.

We were talking about SR's Lois. We did not arrive at this point. You brought this pointless topic into the debate for no reason because you frequently make no sense.

So you admit you have been exaggerating. So how much do you really like SR? As for me...yes I was in denial about liking SR...until I realized I hated that piece of ****. I will admit that...denial was my best friend until I could come to grips with that.

But he did create life. He created Jason. He is a god per your own words. Are you confused?

What did that have to do with SR's Lois though? What was the point you were trying to make when that wasn't the point of the conversation? Do you see or understand why that doesn't add up, or has the senility already started to claim your mind?
