I Feel The Need To Add This To My Post on the Casting  
I'm not going to take an active interest in the new film and I'm not thrilled with the casting, but this doesn't mean I don't want you guys to support it. I don't think I'm going to have a L&C-sized loathe-on for this one; it's just that I followed SR from the ground up and got my heart broken by what happened next. Smallville I followed from the shadows, watching an episode or two a season right up to season four and then watched only the Lois episodes until season 8. It took EIGHT YEARS to change my opinion of the show. 

I just don't have a huge interest in this one, especially if he's going with the story line where the rumbles seem to be heading and I see coming together. And if that's the case, I may never watch it. All of you are more than welcome to see it and love it. I won't mock you or anything else. I'm just disappointed in what I see happening and don't want to be part of it. If you guys want to discuss it with me as time goes on, that's fine. I'm just not going to seek it out. I feel bad, but I can't shake it. But those of you that can, ENJOY! It's a hell of a ride to watch a film like this form before your eyes. 

I just wanted to make it clear that I'm not going to flame or mock anyone that brings it up. :D

Shut the hell up, Bryan. At least let me maintain a sense of fair-play. :P

That was one of my biggest worries with it. What did you think of the shortened story line? Any issues?

So sorry you feel that way, but I understand why you do. When one creates an ideal version in one's head, it is sometimes hard to let go of it if the actual film process does not match one's expectations. If you prefer to take a back seat on this one, that's alright. We've all got moments when we must prioritize our concerns.

But maybe, just maybe, this project will end up surprising you after all. We'll see how things shape up when the first trailer comes out. And perhaps the Man of Steel will bring hope into your heart again.


Lauré :)

It just needs to be this way. I don't want to follow it so close this time. I have certain expectations of a Superman film, we all know that, and I don't want to turn nasty and ragey if things are off what I consider the mark. I also don't want to ruin it for any of you.

I hope you're right. After so long, it would be nice.

Makes perfect sense. I'm going to wait until to see it until I can find it online - I don't want to pay for this unless it's worth it - and will let you know how good/awful it turns out to be.

That's exactly what I'm planning for. I just don't want another crusher like what happened with SR. That and I can't bear to see another director not 'get' Lois. We both know she was my biggest problem with Singer's film.

I completely understand hon. For me, this is all new. I didn't follow SR at all, no spoilers, nothing until I walked into the theater and yes, it was a disappointment, such a letdown but there was talk of a sequel for years after, but then it didn't happen. *bummer*

So I understand you not wanting to go through that again.

I'm kind of enjoying this ride right now. It's a risk getting involved with a movie through all the ups and downs of it, then to be disappointed.

I guess that's the way Hollywood works, and you just never know how the final product will turn out or if we'll like it or not. It's a big investment for a lot of people.

*hugs you*

aw honey, I don't know what happened that you felt the need to write this entry. Of course we know you're not judging anyone and won't mind if we support it or not. The opposite is also true, we are in no place for judging you in your opinion.
This whole thing is just completely messed up. I hate seeing this amazing fandom so worn up over this :/

I love you!

Actually, no one has said anything yet, but I just wanted to clarify because I know all of us have such strong feeling on things. It was done mostly to cut off any in-fighting ahead of time. *snugs* I just wanted everyone to know I don't like it, but it will be a flame-free zone.

I'm hoping it won't come down to it tearing up apart, but you never know with this sort of thing. At least we'll all have SR. :D
