Despite its brevity, that was an interesting little moment. But I don’t think it can be read as Supes berating himself for the badness that happened in his absence. Rather, he was disappointed that we hadn’t improved in five years; it was a critique of humanity (which certainly ties in to the later line about people “crying” out for a savior).

Him finding Lois' article "Why The World Doesn't Need Superman". As well as the line which was mentioned earlier...."You wrote that the world doesnt need a saviour, but everyday I hear people crying for one."

Lois and Superman seeing each other for the first time in 5 years.

Superman remembering what Jor-El had told him "Even though you've been raised as human you are not one of them. They can be a great people, Kal-El. They wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way.

Stuff like that really brough out the best of Superman IMO.

Good posts.

I watched the movie yesterday on the AMC channel. Such a good and powerful movie.

I like this retro review. Don't agree with everything but had some good things to say about the film:

This one's better (though it's a bit "academic" and the author is a tad long-winded):

John Williams didn't score the film. It was John Ottman, using William's cues...
Next to that, I didn't understand a word of what you said.

If you think that's the only thing Superman Returns got right, I can't believe that. But I've always liked the fact that Superman was the only survivor. Screw Zod, screw Supergirl... etc...

Something else that SR got right was that it paid homage to where the Man of Steel got his start:

Also the casting of Brandon Routh as Superman was great, no matter what some people say.

EVERYTHING!!! its a drama not a action flick. I know that's weird for a superman flick well I guess if you don't look at S1 and S2. For what ever reason it just dint sell well with the public. I always wonder if a year before or a year after if it would have done better. Its amazing to me that when you here the complaints about this movie it always different. its just a sad sorted set of events that left it a one of a kind. Who knows they might of messed up a sequel any ways. I guess it really comes down to people only want a bang bang shoot em up movie no story arc no caracter develpment just I hit you I win. I think MOS will be great no I know it will. Its going to get every thing wright just like SR. their are just going to be little things that people are going to ***** about just like any movie. so ya when asked what SR got right. EVERYTHING!
