    Hmm yeah me too, I mean Superman has lost some of his old 'style' here, and I don't really see much pep put into this. So you're not alone.

    At this point you've got me wondering if it's really chills and not actually a boner, tbh.

    It could very well be both!

      Nope, you are most definitely not the only one. But I'm not a big Superman fan at all. My biggest Super-memory is probably watching Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman as a 6-year-old! It's probably the only reason I know who Dean Cain is.

      I've never been a Superman fan whatsoever either, though there is a cartoon I recall watching as a child that had a pretty cool Superman in it. He was alright! Of course, the name escapes me, as per usual. But anyway, this movie is looking pretty good regardless. It's definitely not number one on my summer movie list but it's there. After Earth deeeefinitely has that spot!

      Interesting that After Earth moved up a week so as to not conflict too much with Superman. ;D Hehe.

      I just had a look at After Earth, as I hadn't heard of it until now and this is the first sentence that worried me:
      Quote:
      It is co-written, produced and directed by M. Night Shyamalan
      The premise of it sounds very interesting, and I will always enjoy Will Smith in anything he's in, but I just have to be wary of anything that has M. Night Shyayalanalalaman's name on it, for obvious reasons. Is this year the year of the futuristic/abandoned Earth movie or something?

      Yeah, I was turned off at first because of Shamaylan, but it might not be all that bad, considering what I've seen from trailers. Maybe he can break his streak of absolutely terrible movies.

      Providing Will Smith has trained his young Padawan well in the arts of acting, this could be a huge blockbuster! Unless Shmymynaanlan gets his own way and turns it into a big budget, unofficial remake of Lost or something.

      When I saw the trailer for this I wasn't really paying attention and said "I guess they couldn't get Will Smith for this, but they got a guy who looks kind of like him." He's so predictable with the movies he makes it's kind of sad since I want to like him, but I haven't seen anything with him in it I've liked since Pursuit of Happyness.

      Considering he took a four year break from 2008 to early 2012, Will hasn't been in that much since Pursuit of Happyness, soooooo

      That would be why he wasn't on my radar at all. I just assumed he was making flops or something.

      Nah, I think he was busy being a father & raising his kids to replace him when he retires or something, lol.

      I gotta say it weirds me out a little when actors have kids, like not yet adult kids, who also act. I wonder if they're doing it because they want to or because their parents want them to.

      Will Smith is probably my most favorite actor, but his son... I really don't feel the same about him.

        Wait, M. Night Shyamalam is involved in After Earth? Now I'm worried that it's going to be another sub-par, environmental rant film, with countless plot twists that make little sense.

        I really didn't notice Will Smith's absence from the previous decades, nor was I aware that his son is going to be his replacement soon.

        Not sure if this is worth discussing here at the GE section, but apparently, they're re-releasing the awful Super Mario Bros. movie to the silver screen in L.A. to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Just when this year marks 20 years of some of our beloved films (Jurassic Park, Lion King, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc.), they have to celebrate 20 years of this abomination: http://mynintendonews.com/2013/05/03/the-super-mario-bros-movie-gets-20th-anniversary-screening/

        I wasn't aware that The Lion King had suddenly been transported a year back in time! Incredible. Science is amazing.

        His age don't matter, I just don't like the kid very much. Plus, Macaulay Culkin did better acting when he started to rise to fame.

        And really? The horrible Super Mario Bros movie? For celebrating 20 years, they could haveve done something a lot better than re-releasing that horrible thing called a video game adaption =/
        They have been numerous movie that are video game based but that one just takes the cake.
        Re-releasing that movie would just make everyone remember of how bad that movie did justice to the best selling franchise on the planet.

        Nothing wrong with bringing an old movie back to the silver screen for another run. Even bad movies have their fans. And there are people who like to watch bad movies for the fun. Why do you think I've seen all the Twilight movies?

        It's become a cult classic like Plan 9 From Outer Space due to it's bad quality and campiness, although when judged by itself not as a adaptation of Super Mario Bros it's a pretty forgettable movie.

        Really? Super Mario Bros The Movie is now a classic? Wow, I'm guessing because it's Mario Bros.? Plus it's been rated as the worst video game movie adaptation.

        Well, we'll just have to see how well it does in the box office when it comes out.

        It's not a classic in the generic sense of the word. As Urban Dictionary so eloquently puts it, a cult classic is 'something that's really hip with a select group of people,' meaning its fanbase is most likely comprised of people who like bad movies, those who think any adaptation of their favorite game (in this case Mario Bros.) is just THE BEST THING EVER!!!, and those who legitimately thought it was good, otherwise known as the minority.

        Hmm, haven't ever heard of those people. Until now, every person that ever talked about the movie told me that they hated it, maybe they're a small number?

        Btw, do you guys think that movies leaked on the internet while they're still in the theaters could affect the box office a lot?

        I don't really like piracy myself, so I mostly just buy or check the movies in theaters.
