    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I started my October Challenge earlier than planned this year. It was worth it.

    Anthony Perkins turns in a great performance as he reprises his role as Norman Bates. Recently released and considered cured by the state, Norman returns to his old home and motel to try and put together a normal life. He immediately finds himself drawn to his co-worker, Mary, from the diner that hires him.

    ★★

    A very boring spy movie.

    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.

    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!"
