Review of Superman: Doomsday by svmadelyn

If this is true, if what she has written is accurate--there is no beauty left in the universe. It is like listening to A Perfect Circle sing Imagine. But you know, textual. And with less John Lennon.

Quotes:

*Lex kneels over Superman's prone form, landing blows! He rips off his gloves and clutches at Superman*

Lex: "Who's your daddy? By the way you're doing a fine job of convincing the world you're Superman. Keep up the good work." *stroking his face*


And.

Clone Superman, to criticism of dropping Toyman: "I consider myself the authority on what's best for Metropolis. Don't you?"

Martha: *narrows eyes* "That is not the boy I raised." God, you tell 'em, Martha.

...Superman pulls a cat out of a tree and bitches about how he doesn't have time to rescue every little thing due to inattentiveness and stupidity and how he has more Important Bizness. no. NO. DO NOT KILL THAT CAT - STOP PETTING IT -DON'T.

OKAY HE DOES NOT KILL THE CAT. THE ONE GOOD STORY CHOICE IN THIS FREAKING THING.


THE HIGHLIGHT IS THAT THE CAT LIVES.

I want to curl up and die. They took everythign beautiful and meaningful about violent enemy slash and made it wrong!!!!!

(Must. Never. Watch. Might. Die.)

Huh. It's true what they say. Beauty (truth and I guess slash) is subjective. Personally, I spent the movie in a place of very special squee. Then I rewatched it to squee again.

Mind, you it's funny how various people seem to be worried about the cat. I was wondering if notSuperman would kill the old woman as part of the lines in his moral Rubicon sand. It was all very LorderSupes, which is where I would like to grow more squee.

I don't care how many people tell me "Who's your daddy?" is an actual line. I refuse to believe it of humanity. She's making it all up. It's mass hypnosis. ANYTHING.

Okay, see, now I'm torn. Because there is a screening of that next weekend at the con I'm going to (the con where I will see Joe Flannigan talk and then debate if the $30 cost of getting my photo taken with him is worth the embarrassment when I probably turn non-verbal in front of my family... and, yes, it is) and... hmmm. I'm *thinking* about seeing it, but...

Oh. Decisions, decisions.
