    I liked it for it's quirkyness. What really killed it for me what Miller putting in the line "Goddamn Batman" in every comic afterwards. It's one thing to write a comic that's "so bad it's good", it's another to piss on your work because you took fan criticism seriously. He should've just ignored the feedback and finished it as planned. I think it would have been looked back upon as an interesting take. What a waste of talent.

    Miller has a couple good Batman books. (And Daredevil) Other than that he is a terrible writer.

    I thought it was good, but not THAT good. Aquaman was very different to it, but a lot more enjoyable and emotionally resonant for me. Maybe I like happy and bright things more.


    This isn't controversial, it's one of my go-tos for rewatching. Just watched it again a couple nights ago.
    I've seen people saying how overrated Superman the Movie it is.

    Hmph. What're you gonna do? It's not that someone has gone and examined said movie and put it under scientific tests to determine a rating and they give you this rating and say all results determine that you will enjoy. They say it's a great movie as a short cut, because it's impossible to communicate what this movie means to them. Especially for adults talking to their kids--because they have a wealth of experience.

    So they say, I like this movie and I want you to watch it with me. You might not understand at the time, but the reason your father wanted you to watch that John Ford western with him is because it connected with him and it says somethng about how he feels about the world that he could never put into words, but he hoped if you watched this movie you would begin to understand all the things going on inside him.

    When you say it's overrated you're failing to understand the subtext of what the other person means and their motive in wanting you to see the movie. They want you to understand them and have some empathic connection with their experience. You're being a moron to reject that impulse.

    The upcoming Supergirl movie just be about Supergirl with no mention of Superman. No Superman cameos. Supergirl is never going to be her own character if she is always shackled to Superman.

    The original Superman movie?
    I actually think it's underrated.

    Thanks.
    I simply couldn't resist. Especially once I found the perfect image that matched the dialogue.

    She's literally shackled to him in every way. You can't get past that.

    Controversial opinion: I can enjoy Superman as a character, but I don't find him aspirational, nor do I understand why I'm supposed to. He's a comic book character, not a household god.
