The Man of Metropolis

So has anyone gone to see the new Superman movie yet? The answer is no. In spite of getting, well, not that bad of reviews, the movie has made very little money so far. The general consensus I get from the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes is that the movie was long, tender, and gentle but for the most part not that fun. I still plan on going to see it. What do you guys think?

Here is a whole load of songs.

[mp3]
Sufjan Stevens - The Man Of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts
[mp3] The Flaming Lips - Waitin' for a Superman
[mp3] The Kinks - (Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman
[mp3] Our Lady Peace - Superman's Dead
[mp3] Three Doors Down - Kryptonite
[mp3] Five for Fighting - Superman (It's Not Easy
[mp3] Crash Test Dummies - Superman's Song
[mp3] Laurie Anderson - O Superman
[mp3] Lazlo Bane - Superman (Theme to Scrubs)
[mp3] R.E.M. - Superman
[mp3] Goldfinger - Superman
[mp3] Spin Doctors - Jimmy Olsen's Blues
[mp3] Bush - Superman


* Note: Leaving off Eminem on purpose.

I'm not sure what sources you're using Travis, but it's actually had a fairly respectable opening so far. It made $52 million over the weekend, bringing the debut week total to over $80 million. That's a stronger start than Batman Begins and that also went on to have a pretty long and successful theatre run. Just sayin'...

I would've included "Even Superman Shot Himself" by Powerman 5000, but that's because I was a loser in junior high.

Superman's looking like a jerk in that comic. Is it real?

EvilBiscuit's got it. Really funny site and the best part is that they are all very real.

You can also use Sunshine Superman by Donovan-- an oldie but a goodie.
