Super Gorgeous




I think that someone who discovered Brandon Routh bartending should be given a pat in the back. I'm not saying he's a great actor but he has potential. Let's cut him some slack since this is the first major role he played and I don't think he messed it up. He can still be the geeky Clark Kent and the swoon-worthy Superman/Kal-el.


This is going to be one biased post. I watched "Superman Returns" with my family late last night and my sister and I just gushed whenever his face graced the screen. I am lusting loving Brandon Routh! The plot is simple. Maybe too simple for the hard-core Superman fans who gave this movie a thumbs-down. There are no unexpected twists and no and-the-plot-thickens moment, but I have to say the special effects are awesome! Even the new Superman suit is a cool change. Kevin Spacey is one of my favorite underrated actors. Oh and did I mention Kate Bosworth is one lucky b*tch? On-screen she gets to kiss Superman and Cyclops (James Marsden who played Richard) and off-screen she gets to smooch Orlando Bloom, her real-life boyfriend. Some girls have all the luck!


Most people have watched this but for those who haven't, it's a fun family movie. Reminisce the past when you hear John Williams's "The Love Theme", which is actually a combination of "The Flying Sequence" (popularly known as "The Superman Theme") and the melody of the heartwarming "Can You Read My Mind?" sang by Margot Kidder. Is there gonna be another one after this? I hope so. I hope they keep the same actors. Brandon Routh can grace my screen anytime.

IMHO Brandon Routh was superb as Superman - it's eerie how he resembles Reeve so much. I just hope in the next films he gets to put his own mark on the franchise and not be pigeonholed as Reeve clone.

My friends who got to watch the film said that Brandon Routh put up a good play as superman, in fairness. But if he and Christopher Reeve were to be compared, my friends' votes would still go to the latter. Guess it's really hard to fill in Reeve's shoes.

O well, I better catch the film this weekend and see for myself =)

Yeah, it's just that know some people who got disappointed with Routh's acting. You're right, jorge. I hope he gets to put his "personal touch" next time and IMHO, though Routh has to go through A LOT of things to achieve what Reeve accomplished, I think he's still a lot cuter than Reeve. Hehe! Sorry fans! :p

They will. The cast signed a deal to do two more Superman movies. Yahoo!
