Anyone else seen Super?
OMG, I just watched this film and it was one mistake away from being incredible.

I have a question that I simply cannot fathom any answer to so maybe someone else has an idea.

WHY THE FUCK KILL OFF BOLTIE?!?! She has gotta be one of the greatest film characters ever! What the actual fuck!

To be honest perhaps I was more interested in venting than asking questions though I'd still be interested in any answers.

I saw it when it was called Kick Ass.

If Super ripped off Kick Ass I'd be the first to say it. However, they didn't.

I saw it when I was really, really, really drunk... So, I remember very little of it.

We had just finished a LOTR marathon... drinking game included. I don't know why we put it on when we were that smashed.

RE: Anyone else seen Super?
Yeah I saw it.

I liked the first half and then the rest built up to nothing. The ending was bad, and it should feel bad. There is no lesson, or resolution. I don't think every story needs those components, but this one did. And it didn't have them.

I also think that after the first half they sort of forgot how to balance the dark humor and unsettling violence. I enjoy Rainn Wilson and the chick from Juno, but this movie was a let down. You should watch Defendor. It's also a let down, but it puts it's pieces together a little nicer, and has a better handle on it's dark humor. Also Woody Harrelson.


P.S. Kick Ass still sucks.

RE: Anyone else seen Super?
OOOH! I remember Super. I only saw it once back when it first came out.

I don't really have much of an opinion of it, other than that it was odd. It just moved from one absurdity to another, which was funny but kind of jarring. And the whole thing with Liv Tyler kind of sucked. They played it like it was a positive ending but I didn't feel that.

Overall, just an odd film.

Great way to recommend a film that is.

I'm guessing what you meant was "Kick Ass is still the greatest film ever and my judgement still sucks"?

Defendor is great. Super is super. What is wrong with you people? That scene was there so that the movie can be completely weird, Tarantino style. I loved both of then, as well as Kick Ass.

Yeah but that scene kinda killed the film.

They should taken a leaf outta Kick Ass' book;

In Kick Ass Hit Girl isn't pointlessly killed.

PS. Congrats for having better taste than Lucradis.

Yeah, but the scene really fits into the rest of the movie, I might not like it, but it fits perfectly in the movie. Unfortunately, it's that kind of a movie.
