    I just dont.


    The plot is highly derivative and formulatic.




    Discuss.

    This is just a response to my thread, with that being the case and the lack of originality... I choose not to discuss at this moment.

    You could have just made another "Hey I bet I'm saying this for the first time, I don't like the kid and..." blah blah.... thread

    I think he's trying to prove the point that people who praised you will attack him for essentially the same thread with a different opinion.

    Once again, you hit the proverbial nail on the proverbial head. I dont like the direction this movie is going in, and I'm sure others disagree. Im just trying to put some Baileys in the same old coffee.

    It's not the same thread though. It's just taking my title and saying "discuss"

    I would not have obvjected to him saying "I dislike this movie, here is why" then in the post outline the reasons. Or he could have made a joke like "What I like about this movie..." and then had a spoiler that read "I like that I won't be seeing it"

    It's all in originality my friend :)

    You think mimicking my thread as well as posts is really proving a point?

    Don't we already have a civil thread for people who don't like the film?

    We do. But he didn't make this thread in order to discuss why he dislikes SR (which he couldn't have seen). He made it to take a jab at me. I demand royalties for his use of my Bailey's joke :mad: !!

    Who says that dissatisfaction with this movie has to be designated and limited to one thread? Support for this movie surely isn't. So why is this thread any less warranted then JCDC's?

    Whoa, I thought I was seeing double for a second. I was like, "wtf?" Haha. Um.

    I'm sorry you don't like the film and the direction its going in. I have -some- reservations, but am trying to view the film as an entity unto itself so I don't get bogged down in the details.

    It's like AvP. Read the graphic novels, the books, watched the first two movies that I loved . . . and then that garbage with Paul Anderson directing comes and rips my heart out.

    It's not pleasant to see something you like perverted or done poorly in your own eyes. It hurts. And it REALLY hurts when you are the minority that's upset. You refer to the source material and tell everyone its all wrong. No one really cares because they were entertained for an hour or so.

    But that's life. For once I'm really pleased with where a movie is going with the most important superhero that I've known since I could read. Why? I don't know. I just like what I see, just like you don't. I get what I want, you don't. I'm sorry to say that I got my wish: when I was watching X2, I loved the opening sequence and the fight between Wolverine and Lady Deathstrike. And I wished that Singer could direct the next superman movie. I **** you not. So if you want to blame someone, blame me. :O

    Perhaps in another twenty years we'll see something more to your liking, but until then, you'll just have to go along with what you get, unless you could actually make a Superman film yourself. I wouldn't mind seeing many, many interpretations--then you can pick your superman for your mood.

    My two cents.

    It's not a jab at you, personally, brother. I just dont see why a thread like yours is any different or "worthy" from a thread thats essentially the same but with a differnet opinion.

    Cause my parody is funny and yours sucks? :)

    Exactly. The film isnt even out yet.


    Thats prolly the reason why they should just limit the complaint threads to one thread.

    Mine is different. It's a joke aimed at BOTH sides. Those that expected it to be a bash SR thread and were ready to kill me, were in no simpler word... HAD. :) Those that were in support of the same old "why I don't like this movie" thread, were also duped. It basically screwed everyone. Gotta love it :D

    Who says i'm trying to parody your sentiments? Im just stating an opinion thats counter-active to yours.


    Yes, the film has not been released yet, which is why there is room for speculation, negative or positive.

    You use the exact same thread title. Then in one of your posts you copy my Bailey's coffee joke from the OT.

    Ya know if you click on the first page of my thread, you'd see that BOTH sides were messed with, and for the most part it was taken with good humor. Which was the point.
