I have a lot of nostalgia for Superman Returns, and particularly Routh and yes, his suit.

Like Andino, I've come to appreciate it more since Man of Steel came out. It's a bit 'nicer' of a movie. I don't really know how to articulate it.

As far which movie is better/my preferred, I guess Man of Steel. But... it's a lot closer than I'd hoped.

I understand. It was on TV the other day. While the story is still lacking, the cinematography and look is more what I expected a modern Superman movie to look like. When he flies back to the fortress of solitude for the first time, it's absolutely gorgeous. I actually think it lends itself to a Justice League movie than MOS.

I adore Superman Returns.

It's one of the best superhero movies ever made.

I know this movie gets a lot of hate, but I actually liked how they portrayed the character in this movie.

Caught some of Returns on HBO the other day.

I don't know...there is some beauty to this movie. I really dig John Ottman's score, and some of the visuals are great. There are flight sequences in the movie that I find to look better than anything in MoS. The main problem for me is that the melodramatic elements with Lois/Jason and the bright and chipper Donner throwback tone never really mesh together. Routh and Bosworth are both too young to really lend the roles the credibility they need. The problem is that they cast them young thinking franchise, but then really wrote themselves into a corner with the story and obviously the movie didn't do what WB hoped. Also Richard is probably the most likable character in the movie, which is kinda weird.

I think the best way I can put it is, it's a movie that serves its role as something you happen to catch on TV. It's not a movie I'll probably ever decide to sit down and watch any time soon, but it's nice to catch some of it and be reminded of some of the things it did well.

Oddly enough I feel like Star Wars: The Force Awakens is kind of a successful version of what Superman Returns was going for.

Agreed on TFA been a more successful version, I even said when I reviews TFA that it reminded me of Superman Returns in what it wanted to do but it was a more entertaining result.

Totally agree on the Ottman score too, it might actually be my favourite Superman movie score of them all.

Watched this again as going to see BvS in the week, I still love this movie, it still has moments which make the hair on the back of my neck stand up. And I still feel there is a lot of heart to the movie and Routh was never rated in the role.

It's the Superman movie which got me more into the character and got me reading the comic so I will always appreciate it, but even as a movie I still enjoy it a lot.
