Ok first of all I dont want to sound like a troll. We all have our own points of view and we are here as fans to share them. This is my own personal opinion and I look forward to reading others. I have a bad feeling about this Movie for a number of reasons. I was 6 when I went to see the original it blew me away I did not question the choice of Actors or the storyline as a child I loved the action and the magic and the John Williams music. Superhero movies since have not lived up to the same standard Batman Spiderman Hulk ect. The other main blockbuster for me as a child was the Star Wars trilogy and this franchise has just returned with 3 average to bad movies. I am not taking a shot at this movie in particular so much it just seems like they dont make them like they use to. Another point Superman the Movie stood alone but these days there are lots of Superhero movies and mostly bad. I did not like the Spiderman movies or the Batman movies and I hated Hulk, however Batman Begins was quite good and I hope the new Superman movie can surprise me I really do. In 1979 after years of Superman being in low budget productions Superman the Movie blasted its way onto the screen it was full of great effects in Widescreen and super stereo sound. In 1979 at home we had a crummy little television and seeing Superman on the big screen was an experience. Fast forward to today I have a huge Screen at home a powerful sound system and Superman the Movie is part of my collection. Maybe the main problem I have with this movie is I am no longer a kid. Back when we were kids we had less and seeing Superman was an event will kids these days care. Now on the other hand if this movie turns out to be really good I fear it wont capture the sense of event that we as children felt in the 1970s. I know some fans will say I am just going to bash no matter what kind of movie comes out in the end and maybe they are right. Its possible that the main problem with this movie is that its out of its time and it will never replace itself in my mind with the movie I seen when I was a chid no matter how good it is. Just one last point Christopher Reeve was Superman for me and It makes me feel a bit old and also a little sad to think things have moved on. A little like James Bond we are going onto the 6th actor and many people still prefer Sean Connery after all these years.
