So why am I finding myself to be so skeptical about the Superman movie? I loved Watchmen and the The Dark Knight trilogy...

But did you like Stupid Punch and 300?

I agree though: Hopefully with the Nolans involved, it'll be better.

And I would have liked 300 a lot more if it hadn't been shot like a music video. And while I think we're in the minority, I enjoyed Watchmen, too. I think, given the source material, it was about the best it could be done. (That's not a glowing endorsement, but I can't see it being done better.)

Snyder is much better as a director when working with other's material. Sucker Punch is by far his worst movie, and the idea and screenplay were his. He did help write the 300 screenplay, but of course it's based on Miller's work. With Dark Knight scribe Goyer and with Nolan on as producer, I have high hopes for Man of Steel. The trailer showed just enough footage to have me asking questions about what's going on without really giving any of the story away, so ideal as far as trailers go.

Watchmen is probably my favorite hero movie. I love the stakes, the mystery, the philosophy, the distinct characters, the history it created, the fact that it's 'R'. It felt real, despite its fantastic propositions. I had never read the novel, so knew nothing going in, and was subsequently blown away.

For the first time, I'm wondering how superman shaves his face...
