    Does anyone know where to get that cellphone screensaver that features Clark changing into Superman and flying off that was done by Alex Ross? I tried very hard but couldn't find it.

    Hey guys, anyone seen the comotion about X3? Fanboy-ism all over the X3 boards. The clip they showed on Leno was horrible, im not even worried one bit about that film being competition! I particularly liked this quote here;

    uh huh...

    Yeah, let me know as well if anyone finds it. I've been looking for it for quite a while but can't find it. I think I remember seeing something about it a long time ago on Supermanhomepage. Might check there.

    Thank you!

    Yeah. I just saw that clip. It looked absolutely atrocious. If the rest of the movie is that way, I think we're in big trouble. Bad score, bad special effects, terrible dialogue...even the acting looked sparse, like they did fewer takes than usual just to save money.

    I just watched it earlier, and I have to agree that the acting did seem a bit off from the other movies. I'm still excited about this movie, it was cool to see them do the fastball special and it was great to see what Wolverine destroyed. I'll still give it a chance :) I'm excited about both movies.

    Was watching part of the Boston Red Sox vs Baltimore Orioles game and they panned the crowd. What do I see, but a kid decked out in full Superman Returns suit, muscle included. They kept going back to this kid with the camera during the course of the game.

    I think the sequence they showed on Leno seemed a bit corny.. more comic bookish, but corny.. However, the special effects looks pretty cool... But Superman will knock the **** out of X3... and all others too I think. At least until next year when spidey 3 is released... let's see how that goes.. But I've never been more exited for a movie like I am for superman!

    if x3 is like tv spot 10, Returns won't have a chance against it, I tell you. but if its comedic and light spirited like that leno clip, it'll be a firecracker in its first week, big flash and quickly fizzle out. That clip can be described in one word: Cheesy. Nope not the delicious snack kind. I'm talking about Go go power-x-men! Make my Sentinel Groooowww type of cheesy. Please don't make me wish Singer could have done both films ratner....

    I love both supes and x-men, both a huge part of my childhood, so both of you better have done your best with them.

    now I have a craving for cheese so I'll be back after I've gone to the kitchen to get some. yummmm

    I had a dream last night that I was playing the Ghostbusters video game. I was fighting the Stay Puft Marshmallow man and Batman showed up to help. Batman & Ghostbusters vs. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!! Then you had to be A KID (like Jason W.) to do some side mission to defeat the Marshmallow man. Then I dreamed I tracked mud all in Mel Gibson's house. He wasn't too mad though.

    Been having lots of dreams about SR the movie. Every time I see it in my dreams, the movie always sucks!:(

    This was from Mothers day...

    http://desmoinesregister.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060514/NEWS08/605140314/1010
    Superman owes it all to Mom

    Few things can test a mother’s love and patience like a child’s dream to be a big-time Hollywood actor.

    Brandon Routh was an 18-year-old college kid when he came home with a dream: He wanted to become a model, a move that would blossom into a desire to act.

    But he would have to start in New York. Then move to Hollywood. That would take money.

    “I’m a teacher, and Ron worked maintenance,” said Katie Routh, Brandon’s mother. “We’re a modest family of modest means. But we didn’t want money to be in the way of our kids’ dreams.”

    So the Norwalk family began to make sacrifices. They started with $7,000 in seed money. Then Katie Routh sold her camper, ran up her credit cards and held off on buying a new car and fixing up the house.

    Brandon needed walking lessons for modeling. He needed airline tickets to New York and Los Angeles. He needed cash, once he decided to move to L.A. to pursue a career. “She has made a lot of sacrifices,” said Ron, her husband.

    The sacrifices paid off. After about seven years of work, Brandon will hit the big screen this summer in “Superman Returns.”

    He’ll play Clark Kent and Superman, a blockbuster role that could turn him into an overnight star.

    His success started small. A commercial here, a spot on MTV there. A year’s stint on “One Life To Live,” and then the long process of auditioning for roles and then waiting months to hear whether he’d gotten the part.

    At each step, his mother was there, encouraging him, telling him he could do it.

    “It was sporadic, his work,” Katie said with a laugh. “We were still footing the bill.”

    Then, suddenly: Success.

    Brandon would be Superman. And it wouldn’t have happened without his mother. “We knew this was his dream, that it’s what he wanted, and we wanted to help him get it,” she said.

    But she has one thing money can’t buy. A son living his dream.

    “Our kids come first.”
