YOU KNOW…

…I really think that I bought the Superman/Doomsday DVD for the Requiem and Rebirth: Superman Lives! documentary.

 Don’t get me wrong.  I liked Superman/Doomsday as a movie.  It wasn’t a strict adaptation like Justice League: New Frontier was but it had it’s moments.  The action was phenomenal and the story was solid enough, but that documentary was what really had me excited.  It is one of the few times where a documentary (or featurette as they are sometimes called) surpassed my expectations.  It had the creators from what I consider “my” era of the character and brought back all of the memories from Doomsday, Funeral For a Friend and Reign of the Supermen

Well, it didn’t exactly bring them back.  I am one of those freaky people who can tell you where I was and what I was doing when I first read most of my comics.  It’s just one of those things.  I remember what I was doing the weekend Superman #75 came out, I remember when I bought the Funeral For a Friend issues and so on.  Despite this “gift” I enjoyed hearing the behind the scenes stories and was impressed with how in depth they went into the creation of the story.

In all honesty I would have paid fifteen bucks just for that.  I look at this DVD as a documentary with a cartoon attached.

    There something else other then the documentary. Oh that’s right, their was that pretty decent movie that came with. In all serious, I actually enjoy the movie better with the commentary on, which rocks

  4. Michael Bailey says:

    The commentary was interesting but I am pretty partial to those things anyway.

    Dude, when ever I what Blade: Trinity, I always watch it with the David Goyer, Ryan Renolds, and Jessica Biel commentary on. I swear it so hilarious
