World Cup and SupermanWent to see Superman again today (5th time) so I didn't get home until the World Cup was almost over. We did see the last 10 minutes of regulation, both the overtimes and the shoot-out. Asinine way to decide the biggest sports championship in the world. Of course, it was also terribly disappointing to see Zidane headbutt a guy and get red-carded.
Anyway, I loved Superman as much the 5th time as the 1st. I'll probably go again next weekend, although I have to say its a little more difficult to spend the money because A) the prints are getting raggedy and B) the audience is less attentive and, frankly, disgusting.
I see that Bryan Singer is going to ComicCon this weekend in San Diego -- hopefully, he'll announce the sequel, but who knows? When a piece of crap like Pirates can set a new record take ($132 mil in 3 days) and a great film like Superman is struggling with a total take of $142 mil after 10 days, you really have to wonder about the American movie goer.
