I tried to read about all the story elements with an open mind--kind of hard to do when Moriarty is telling you how crappy it is at every turn, but hey, I tried. I actually thought it wasn't bad, at first. Having Krypton not blow up could make for some interesting possibilities.
But damn, it sure fell apart in a hurry. My favorite part was when
Superman dies, and then his father senses his death, so he stabs himself in the stomach, goes to heaven, and convinces Superman that the world needs him, and that he shouldn't die
Haha, that is so bad. Then again, is it really worse than the original Superman movie? I mean come one...the guy flies backwards around the world to travel back in time? What the hell kind of sense does that make? This script is just furthering the level of crappiness--you'd think fans would be pleased.
I guess it's like people who talk about the Scooby Doo movie "ruining" the franchise. Don't get me wrong, Scooby Doo was the crappiest movie to ever crap, but it didn't ruin anything. It just made you realize how crappy it's always been.
And also Batman. A lot of people complain about Schumacher ruining the movies, and of course I agree. But don't forget that Batman is a story about a man who dresses up like a bat to fight evil clowns and penguins.
