Did you ever think you would get nostalgia over a movie from 2000? Jokes were so corny and I remembered half of them but it was still so good. Also
I am going to watch Scary Movie 2, the last good one in the franchise tonight.

The Suicide Squad 7/10 Much of it was a dig at American foreign policy, Stallone was genius, the end was neat.
Margot Robbie gets better and better

There's still a lot of movies that rely heavily on dialog. Not every show can be carried by a giant purple man with multiple chins. I think what's regrettable is the tendency to remake old movies, worse.

Modern movies rely more heavily on action than dialogue. Has this made us better or worse or sideways?

So the book above was thick and had all of those stories crammed into it.After the obligatory period of mourning, DC then decided to milk the story a bit more, and extended it to last nearly a year with the rather inventive idea of having not one but FOUR people showing up and claiming to be a resurrected Superman. Each of these characters was allowed to star in one of Superman's then-current titles for a few months. These were:
The Man of Tomorrow (Cyborg Superman): A cyborg version of Superman, whose DNA was a match for the original's and whose mechanical parts were Kryptonian tech. He claimed amnesia about who repaired him, yet he could recall crucial details about Superman's past. Featured in Superman Vol. 2.
The Last Son of Krypton: A vigilante with a personality similar to the one Superman had demonstrated in an earlier arc, where he (under the influence of a Kryptonian artifact called The Eradicator) became ruthlessly logical. Featured in Action Comics.
The Metropolis Kid (Superboy): A reckless, fame-seeking teenage (assumed) clone created by a secret government project. He cheerfully admits to being a clone, and plans to become Superman's successor. Don't ever call him Superboy. Featured in Adventures of Superman.
The Man of Steel (Steel): A black hero wearing a suit of Powered Armor and swinging a sledgehammer. He was the only one to both admit he was NOT Superman from the start and not actively claim the name for himself. John Henry Irons merely wanted to keep the spirit of Superman alive (although there were hints that he may have been literally serving as an anchor for Superman's soul). Featured in Superman: The Man of Steel, naturally.
