Superman Returns
I got goosebumps on goosebumps. I literally started getting tears of joy at the line "We've got an unknown aircraft in the area. It's REALLY FAST.".

That was the best scene in the film.

I'm not a deep Superman fan and haven't read much of the book. I had quibbles with the film, but I enjoyed it.

(My sister calls it "Jesus Christ Superman" for all the religious imagery.)

Do you feel like they got Lex's character right? I've never cared for any of the films' interpretations of him, though this one did a little better.

The "Jesus Christ Superman" motif is pretty old, and got really developed (and over-developed, IMO) back when Elliot S! Maggin was writing the comics.

There were a lot of nods to Maggin's version of Superman in this movie, such as the putting out of the gas fire, and the "how much can he do in 5 seconds to save a LOT of people?"

There was also a nod to the original Action Comics #1, in the way that he put down the car that had failed brakes. And the way that young Clark was boucing around the cornfields was the way that Superman travelled around in the really early comic books, before he could actually fly.
