A: He bit his own jugular vein after watching Superman Returns. He's in a better place now.
1: Wanna go rent Superman Returns?
2: Wanna lick my dog's balls instead?
1: Sounds like a good alternative.
Great effects, great story and a few genuinely touching moments. Hated on by teenage twits who have no idea what a relationship is, as well as comic loyalists who can't stand to see anything but their own personal version of Superman on the screen. Said loyalists spend most of their time bitching about it on forums such as IMDb, and then cry afterwards while masturbating to their downloaded nude picture of Lois Lane.
As for the general masses going to Pirates instead, it's not a big surprise. Look at pop music, and then imagine it being superimposed onto the big screen. You get POTC: Dead Man's Chest.
Like, we were gonna see Superman Returns, but like instead we decided to go see Pirates so we can see Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp one more time...they're so hot! OMG, OMG!
Superman Returns was better.
Like, it didn't have, like, Johnny and Orlando in it!
