Truth, Justice and the WHAT!!!

As you all know Superman is going to be hitting theaters this week...and I will tell you that I dont even nkow if Ill even see it...I never liked superman that much except Superman 2 with General Zod...that was a good one..the others suck...I do not watch Smallville either NOR did I ever watch the series with Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain. Though...I did watch the cartoon sometimes...anyway...everyone knows the old slogin that superman had back in the day.

he stands for Truth, Justice and the AMERICAN way. Well I read in an interview with the director that apparently they purposely left out "the american way" part...some of you may have seen the trailer that shows that part. Now here is my beef with the whole deal...

The only reason that they left out the american way part was because they wanted to appeal to the none american audience...ok...Its a fucking movie based on a COMIC BOOK people and THAT was his fucking slogin...WHY the hell would you change it or take out the american part just to APPEAL to none americans...but thats not a reason to change it...Now we all know that superman is basically a propaganda type super hero of the 40s...sure...oh course he is...but thats his HERITAGE...and they want to change it for a stupid reason...which I think is BS....but because the world basically hates us...haveing that slogin wouldnt be "good for business" which is of course what america is mostly about...because we wouldnt want to OFFEND none americans...GROW THE FUCK UP people...its entertainment...there is no reason to change it...

Now granted I really could care less if they change it but its the princable of the matter...the reasons for changing it that bother me...but what can you do right...

If I even do see this movie it wont be for awhile....I always liked Batman better anyways....

Hey Nighstalker, you are now living a PC world. Didn't you ever read Orwell's "1984" ? At the time that it was written everyone thought it was a fantasy. But now you see what was written about in the book happening in real life now. Everything that could possible be offensive to anyone anywhere is going down the "memory tube." Read the book and see what it is all about. We used to ridicule the Soviet Union for doing these things, now everyone is doing it.

Do you think Disney will ever release "Song of the South; The tales of Uncle Remus and Br'er Rabbit again? Do think that you will ever see "Gone With the Wind" in the theaters again? Certainly you will never see "Birth of a Nation." Why? Because those films are offensive to a segment of the American population so no one will ever be able to see these films again.

Every nation in the world and every ethnic group can be proud of their heritage. And god forbid if you point out something in that heritage that isn't very flattering. But if an American is proud of what is GOOD in our heritage, he or she is just dismissed as some intellectually challenged boob. The only thing that is PC these days is to criticize America and the "American Way." A line has been crossed from Bush bashing to America bashing.

In some places, just being an American can get you beheaded. And there are those who think it is our fault and we deserve it. (ala that phony, Ward Churchill at the Univ of Colorado. Had the displeasure of meeting his as in Boulder one time.)Wait until they lose their freedoms to the forces of oppression that are opposing the US and see who is there to rescue them this time. Those that forget history are condemned to repeat it. Go read your history books and learn about the Quislings and Chamberlain who would not stand up for freedom in their time and the horror that they allowed to engulf Europe. If it hadn't been for the UK and America, people in Europe today would either be goose-steeping under the banner of the swastika or living in oppression under the hammer and sickle.

Well so much for pushing my hot button on anti-Americanism.

I think Warner Bros wants to appeal to third world countries that have a beef with America in the name of the almighty dollar. I agree, though. It's a bunch of BS. Who is Superman supposed to be fighting for? The Al Queida way? One word: cuhh- .

I'm not sure what the plot of this one is about. Supposedly, it's supposed to be as if 3 & 4 never happened (Nuclear Man sucks anyway). I wonder if Kevin Spacey will make a good Lex Luthor. My mom's prime reason for seeing it.

I read in Wizard magazine back in 1999 about a script Kevin Smith wrote called Superman Lives. It was gonna follow the storyline of his death and rebirth. Lex Luthor sends a signal into outer space, requesting help in destroying Superman. Brainiac answers the call, and both begin work on two devices: Shadowcaster, which blocks out the sun, leaving Superman powerless, and Doomsday, the monster that killed off Superman.

They activate Shadowcaster and send Doomsday out for Superman. Superman puts up a good fight, but dies at Doomsday's hand. One thing Kevin Smith wanted to do was have Batman attend the funeral, with Michael Keaton reprising the role. Then, the Eradicator, I'm guessing a long lost relative of Kal-El (Superman's Kryptonian name, but you already knew that), revives Superman, and the two join up to fight Brainiac and Luthor. Eradicator destroys Shadowcaster, Superman destroys Doomsday, Brainiac is defeated, and Luthor's back in the pen.

That was Kevin Smith's script. I think that one should have been done.

Also, could you believe that they almost got Nicholas Cage to play Superman? That would almost be like George Clooney and Val Kilmer playing Batman.......wait, that already happened.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

Header - I know what you mean...everyone is a bunch of fucking whiners if someone says something that "offends" them...what a crock of shit..everyone has to tip toe around everyone else..which is BS amazes me how our race the human race as a whole has become so decadent and weak...whining over everything little thing that might her their poor feelings...PC can kiss my ass...

Nick - Kevin Smith's script sounds good...I would like to have seen Brainiac as a villian or Doomsday either one..The reason Kevin's script wasnt approved is probably because it followed the comic book too closely...cant have that you know..but I wouldnt know I never read Superman...and nick cage as superman....terrible...Now with Batman...George Clooney wasnt the best choice that I agree BUT he was WAY better by far than Val Kilmer...but honeslty....After Batman Returns the series went down hill....and I was appauled at how they portrade Bane...that was a CRIME I say...Bane was not that stupid...

Nicholas Cage as Superman makes as much sense as Roseanne playing Wonder Woman... *urk*
I just threw up in my mouth a little.

y'all are such geeks! It's so cute! Anyway Kevin Spacey is a sexy bitch and he'll make an awesome Lex (nick my mom loves him too). If you want bad casting make Keanu Lex Luthor...

As for this anti-american bullshit...I don't get it! There are enough non americans that love the american way to make the money they want in the box office. You can change his slogan to something like Superman proclaiming "FUCK YOU AMERICA!" while flipping us the bird while wiping his ass with the american flag and the non american anti-americans will STILL see him as a representation of the american way. Because that is after all what he IS. Slogan or not. The american anti-americans will see it as a pathetic attempt to sway their opinion on Superman.

>>sigh<< I've said my I shall go get a piece...Nicky?
