Looks like we got a nice thing going with the Zod thread.....Some great conversation on who was the better Zod, is going on over there.... But what about Jor-el?? Up to now, it's only been Brando....But now we have Crowe! For my money, it was great to see Jor-el as a man of not only intellect, but ACTION , as portrayed by Crowe!! Remained me of the animated series Jor-el. Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYVkyvOM66Y Brando was great....but he was old (which allowed for a one dimensional Jor-el). Brando could only "talk". I also liked that Crowe was younger....made sense that a young couple was having a baby. Brando was Tony Randall old! LOL Now I know that Brando is a legend....He was great for what he could do. But Crowe did more..... So who is the best Jor-el for you money?? Let the games begin!!!! t: I am not counting the Smallville Jor-el... Just dealing with the movies!
