  • Reactions to “Superman” (1978)

    Date: 2012.06.11 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 0

    It has been a while since I’ve posted–and even longer since I have watched the original “Superman”. So since I have time and nothing else to discuss I’ll give another reactions post a chance! (Note: I missed the first 10 minutes of the movie.)

    1. Even in other planets fathers try to live through their sons.
    2. Wow, so the planet is breaking up, ceiling is falling in, and the mother backs away from the part that is falling–which happens to be right over her baby. Some mother she is.
    3. Is it really wise to surround your infant in a vehicle of sharp crystals?
    4. It’s kinda creepy how much the Kryptonians knew about us.
    5. Why is it always farmers or a farming community? No wonder people are suspicious of those who live in the sticks! They’re hiding aliens!
    6. Um…can they show that on tv?? Again, some mother! can’t even clothe her child.
    7. WHAT? This woman needs psychological help! She wants to just take him in and not even look for his parents?
    8. You can tell this is the sixties. “Oh, Brad.” How about “Brad, you’re such a [bleep] jerk! Keep your [bleep] hands off me!”
    9. He has to doggy paddle to run?
    10. That’s Lois!?! Cradle robber.
    11. Lies! He totally meant to show off.
    12. Wow. Just living with an alien for a couple of years SERIOUSLY ages you.
    13. Great, Clark. You had to show off again and you killed your dad.
    14. Creepy! Why would you steal a flower from your father’s grave and give it to your mother? It seems a little Oedipal if you ask me.
    15. What? Isn’t that Kryptonite? How can he hold it?
    16. Why exactly does he have to leave? Why north?
    17. Litterer!
    18. Actually that’s highly irresponsible of Clark. He has no idea what that alien substance could do to our planet.
    19. Again, another indication his mother was awful. Did she leave a message for him? No. Or maybe he just didn’t find the right crystal message thingy.
    20. Why is his head getting bigger??
    21. 12 years? He must be really hungry! Also, were  there any potty breaks?
    22. Where did he get the fancy pajamas? If there are no potty breaks then surely they didn’t go shopping!
    23. I find it a tiny bit insulting that to “fit in” he makes himself appear so weak.
    24. Why can’t he send the money himself?
    25. Oo the evil Finger of Beckoning!
    26. Rip off the lady’s purse? What are you going to do? Sell it cheap leather conditioner at 5 times the price?
    27. He’s trying to be inconspicuous by being extremely weak, but then he’s going to say exactly what’s in her purse? C’mon Kent!
    28. Good dog!
    29. Don’t they need a ticket to board?
    30. O.o
    31. How can she live with him? I guess you have to take the bad with the baubles.
    32. Lois could really use spellcheck!
    33. Can’t elevators do both?
    34. He’s right. That is a bad outfit. Primary colors, really?
    35. Underwear on the outside?? I mean who does he think he is? Quailman?
    36. And why does he need a belt to hold his underwear up? Hmm??
    37. The way the glass is shaking on the building’s windows…I call fake!
    38. So all of the sudden he does nothing about crime and he’s going to start now because of a little helicopter incident? I guess you have to start somewhere, but it’d be nice if he had gotten that rapist about whom Lois was writing.
    39. What an inconvenience for the city! Really? Really did he have to put the boat in the street??
    40. Does he really have to push his fist forward to fly? I mean what did the air ever do to you that you must punch it?
    41. And still no word from his mother.
    42. Why would Otis stay with him?
    43. Well that was subtle Clark.
    44. Eww..did she just ask if he pooped regularly?
    45. Why would he reveal that? Hey everybody, I can’t see through lead!
    46. Hussy! Asking him to look at her panties!
    47. Ok if a personage were to fly someone, don’t you think he should have a better grip on his cargo? Here, let me just push on your shoulders and grab onto your arm.
    48. At the speed at which they are traveling wouldn’t she be a little less wobbly?
    49. Hmm is that symbolic of woman’s dependence upon man? Once she gains a little independence she drops out of the sky.
    50. Wait. She had a date with Clark and the Man of Steel? Tut tut tut.
    51. Do you think Otis is really dimwitted or he just acts that way so he can do stuff like that to Lex?
    52. I don’t understand how they just know it’ll kill him.
    53. Illogical car crash. How could her body have landed like that?
    54. Also, illogical–men would stay behind to guard the missile.
    55. So Lois just happens to be in the west when Luther is?
    56. Ok why did he go to the trouble of the revolving door earlier when he can just poof into his uniform?
    57. What’s it gonna cost the city to fix that!?!
    58. How is it they’re already back in NY?
    59. Can you sue Superman?
    60. But then where would you make your movies, Gene?
    61. How does he know that he couldn’t stop them? Superman hasn’t been timed before.
    62. Their pool is mislabeled
    63. You can’t “get it on with the good guys” because you want riches and “good” and “rich” don’t often go together.
    64. This is why you never invest in bridges. The Earth shakes a little bit, expensive wires snap, and somebody always has to make a point of driving over the edge expecting you to save them.
    65. What no “thank you” for turning off the power? Or for saving your life?
    66. They must have hired her for her ability to scream.
    67. Really this movie isn’t about Superman–it’s let’s see how much we can do exactly to Lois before her heart gives out.
    68. If this were Disney, she would have woken then.
    69. Now he’s really angry with the air.
    70. Illogical. Time isn’t dependent on the Earth’s rotation to move forward. If anything, he just screwed up the rest of the world making the Earth change direction like that.
    71. So did all those people he helped while Lois died–are they dead now?
    72. In a world that doesn’t realize someone with glasses on is the same person, how could they have hoped to catch a man who wears a wig?

    The End!

  • Explanations and Reactions

    Date: 2012.02.16 | Category: Uncategorized | Response: 0

    So I haven’t posted in….uh forever. I’m still fairly young, so a few months can still be forever. Shut up! Anyway… :-p …I haven’t posted lately because I’m contributing to another blog with much more potential than my own (and looking for more contributors if you’re interested). I probably shouldn’t, but I worry that I’ll run out of ideas to offer the other blog so I haven’t been posting anything new here.

    However, my friend has requested that I review “Fiddler on the Roof” for her and another friend wanted to know how I liked it–and since I’ve been making him do play-by-plays for me of movies he hasn’t seen before–I figured I’d make a post of my reactions to FotR. Here goes:

    1. Things that would be shakier: playing hacky sack, holding a twirling competition
    2. No girl should aspire to become a matchmaker because you will become old and ugly (another example: Mulan’s matchmaker)
    3. I will always associate the matchmaker song with Mrs. Doubtfire
    4. If all the young women are wed to old men what do the young men get?
    5. Rich men, fat wives–that’s how it should be! then we can all aspire to have a body type highly attainable these days
    6. Yay for “If I WERE rich man” (subjunctive! hooray for correct usage!)
    7. He’s going to strain his back dancing like that
    8. I hope none of that spit got in the milk
    9. Yay I’m glad this movie is making me laugh
    10. Well I appreciate that he got angry about the father calling her a cow
    11. But he’s too old for her!
    12. I’m so glad I got to choose my own husband
    13. While all these men are out dancing with each other what are the women doing?
    14. I never understood the historical hatred toward Jews
    15. Woah he got off his roof!
    16. Oh thank goodness!!!!
    17. How many hands does this guy have?
    18. YAY!!
    19. And that’s why women should carry weapons
    20. Ha ha! I saw a parody of this on “The Nanny” (dream sequence)
    21. So the more facial hair you have…the better man you are?
    22. That looks safe–paper cups for wax protection anyone?
    23. Hey! I’ve heard this song before
    24. Lol that older lady looks like a cabbage patch doll!!
    25. Even at a wedding the men and women are kept apart?
    26. Show offs
    27. Ah so the couple registered at Bed Bath and Beyond
    28. Uh oh–oh good! people who actually listen to their religious leaders–or not
    29. Yay he said what I was thinking! Dance with your wives!
    30. Boogie on down rabbi!
    31. That darn horse should have never whinnied
    32. OH NO! but why? I don’t understand…why do people do this to each other?
    33. Intermission! Those who require it please make use of the facilities
    34. Lol “they are so happy they don’t know how miserable they are”
    35. Making your own decisions–how modern
    36. There are all those hands again
    37. Aww he’s a good dad
    38. HA HA–I bet Adam was afraid of Eve too that’s why he ate the apple
    39. Poor guy, it’s hard to be vulnerable
    40. Uh oh clean shaven guys!
    41. See? I told you! Uh oh!
    42. Busy body ol’ coot
    43. The Gulag?
    44. Women are so brave
    45. The train sounds a bit like a Willie Wonka machine
    46. Yay for good news! woah…that’s a lot of people ..OH *whew*
    47. I wonder what they’d think of mine
    48. Oh so that’s what it takes to become a person?
    49. Hey! that’s nearly the same lines from “Ever After” (or vice versa)
    50. Why is he always stubborn in the beginning? you’re gonna cave!
    51. Lol love the wife
    52. It’s hard to take a man seriously when he’s acting all of 2.5 years old
    53. What? priest?
    54. Wow look at that beard! he must be a great man!
    55. Uh oh …now that’s just dumb. I’ll chalk it up to you being upset
    56. He’s got two more daughters..guess that means more heartache. no wonder people of the past only ever wanted sons
    57. Hey now. don’t be a jerk.
    58. Lol I hope he doesn’t really do this part all those hands are showing up again
    59. I guess the butcher got that last hand
    60. What? young matches for young matches?? how extraordinary
    61. No!
    62. What do they have a deal with Uhaul? where will they go?
    63. Well that sucks
    64. Lol maybe that IS why
    65. Man this sucks
    66. That’s a long trip
    67. Ha ha! silly woman
    68. Wow but how will they get there?
    69. Poor cows
    70. Come on!! when will you see her again?
    71. Yay!
    72. LOL my fraidy cat was talking to the baby!
    73. Again, sucks.
    74. Couldn’t wait for spring??
    75. Poor guy..guess he couldn’t take his roof with him
    76. Good movie! very witty

    So there you have it! My reaction to “Fiddler on the Roof”. Very well done! I’m so glad that it’s not one of those movies that EVERYONE thinks is so wonderful and I don’t get the big deal. (Examples: “Citizen Kane” and “Pulp Fiction”)

    I don’t know when I’ll post here again, but you can check out other posts at the link up at the top.
