    A very boring spy movie.

    I liked Jeremy Irons, the straightforward plot, and there are a lot of good shots to gaze at. However it was just super boring to watch.

    ★★★★½

    This is an all time great. I'm a sucker for anthologies anyway, but this is easily one of the best ones ever made. Sadly, it's still 100% relevant in the modern era, with tales of crooked cops, domestic violence, racist politicians, and urban violence.

    My favorite superhero movie. Love the way this Clark/Superman is crafted. Kostner is a great Pa, and Ma's scene with Clark in the school is expertly made.

    Shannon absolutely rules as Zod, and the krypton opening is one of the coolest segments in any comic book movie. "You won't kill us yourself! You wouldn't dirty your hands but you'll damn us to a black hole for eternity! Jor-El was right! You're a pack of fools, every last one of you!"

    This is a bonafide classic I had yet to watch. Glad I fixed that, it was amazing. The imagery is astounding. Just gorgeous. The setting of the decaying building over a dried out water bed was genius, especially in companion to the murky river crash scene in the opening and how the ending plays out. Candace Hilligoss was superb, and the roommate played up the skeevy alcoholic role wonderfully with a blend of terror and humor. The specter haunting Candace's character was excellently executed throughout the picture and gave me chills several times.

    This is one I could watch every year.
