I'm in the same boat. The one with the tiny leak in it. No TMNT, no Ghost Rider, no Spiderman 3. In fact I only just rented Superman Returns. Wasn't impressed actually. Went to see Meet the Robensons in 3-d with my daughter. No go, she panicked and we had to leave the theater.
Let us not forget that he was still recoverying from the Lex shanking. In the hospital they were still pulling kryptonite out of his wound. Plus he was lifting hundreds of millions of tons of rock and kryptonite into space. What would his strength stat be by the way? I know like a 12 or something.
Lex was really good, Spacey was so much better then Hackman ever was. The idea that Superman had a kid, a little bit of a reach but Lois is hot and has been throughing at him for years. I still don't get it. The planet blew up a long time ago. Astronomers find some of the remains so Superman travels back in what, the ship that brought him here as a child? So it took 2 1/2 years each way?
Then he gets back and the first half of the movie is poor me, everything has changed, poor me. I found the pity aspect unbecoming of Superman. By the second half the movie picked up and became the kind of movie you would expect for Superman.
