Superman Returns

Tonight I saw an advance screening Superman Returns, in IMAX and 3D, thanks to my pals Captain Steve and his husband Brian. There was quite a mob scene outside the AMC Lincoln Center Theatre, tons of adorkable boys in Superman t-shirts, with noticeably fewer girls in the lines.

I’m not so big on superhero movies, but I can recommend Superman Returns just as a fantastic travelogue of Manhattan, with many gorgeously slow fly-overs. Otherwise, the movie was long (2.5 hours), the new Superman is hot, and the familiar John Williams Superman theme sounds fantastic. I just can’t believe they killed off Lois Lane.
