Melv and I went to watch Superman Returns last Tuesday. It turned out that Cathay Cineplexes have taken over Mega Pavilion and Tuesday is not a movie day anymore! For Penangnites' info, it is Wednesday now! Same goes to TGV or GSC. Hehe. One thing I hate about BJC's cinemas is that they are really smelly. (BJC here stands for Bukit Jambul Complex) Socks smell? Kaki busuk? Sweat smell? Nar. Once I get to watch any movies in the cinema, I wouldn't mind much. :p
Superman Returns turned out to be okay for me. After a long visit to the lost remains of the planet Krypton, the Man of Steel returns to earth to become the peoples' savior once again and reclaim the love of Lois Lane. Pretty interesting right? This film is magnificiently mounted, it moves like a speeding bullet and it's so respectful of Superman traditions that even the pickiest of die-hard fans should love it. After a lapse of two decades, it finally returns with a new breathtaking guy, Brandon Routh. Breathtaking eh? One thing I want to pin-point is why the heck did they choose this guy as Superman? Well, the battle between 2 supermen. Who will you choose?
The reason why Tom did not play the role is because he has not yet grown into Superman on Smallville series and they don't want to show him in different roles. If that is the case then they should wait. I would rather wait 2 or 3 more years and see a good movie with a good cast rather then some crappy guy trying to fill the role. No one will ever replace Christopher Reeve but Tom is the closest. Right now he is the man. Tom Welling should play the role. It would be an awesome climax to the Smallville series!!! Agree? :p *smirk*
The obvious choice would be this....Imagine Tom in the Superman's suit. *DROOL*
