Default December 26



And now, at last, the honest-to-Kryptonian-god conclusion of the Smallville event. Drumroll, please... here's Five-Minute Superman: The Movie, by Scooter! You'll believe a man can five.


Be sure to check out the front page -- I've finally made a new Christmas banner. And be here tomorrow for a big change of pace.

I always somehow forget just how lethal Scooter's one-liners can be. Probably one of those subconcious self-preseveration thingys.

Hurrah! And also, GAK!

Zeke- like the way the seasonal site update looks. Is there any chance that this thing I should be here for will involve something I've actually seen? As a member of the next generation of Fiver readers, I wholeheartedly approve boldly reading what I've never seen before, but it gets a little annoying sometimes.

This one's a Voyager update.

Hmm... there seems to be a lot of interest in getting back to Trek stuff. Several of you guys mentioned your hopes for new ENT fivers recently. I'll bear that in mind.

Jor-El was hilarious. Good job on his characterization in general. Both as tour guide and as general pain-in-the-butt.

Thanks. I find it very ominous that the trailer for Superman Returns features only the voice of Marlon Brando's Jor-El.

I also wanted to call attention to the terrible and very funny Smallville blurbs.

Nice work, Scooter. Too many good lines to quote them all, but this was too good to pass up.

Fun stuff, Scooter!
I remember thinking how the storyline was kept waiting for oh-so-long when I saw the movie as well.

In light of Zeke's disclaimer on the Superman fiver, this is absorbing and appalling reading: the 20-year nightmare of Superman V/Superman Returns.

Oh WOW. That's link day material, no question. I knew about some of this (I've read Moriarty's description of the JJ Abrams script, and also a pretty lousy Kevin Smith script for Superman Lives), but I had no idea of the sheer mass of bad ideas that have gone into this thing. What particularly worries me is that this post is only two months old. I thought Superman Returns was a clean break from these rejected plans -- if it has anything to do with them, I'll be a lot less optimistic.

I don't think you could make stuff like that up. To echo Zeke, wow.
