I’m guessing ‘S’ stands for “You’re Fucked!”


I liked the Man of Steel trailer imagery (empty swing, wheat field at sunrise, Kent-esque mailbox).

Really such a simple idea, amazed that it hasn't really been explored before. I'm in!

I have to say I really hate Sony's practice of putting snippets of the trailer in front of the trailer on You Tube. Just let people watch it as it was edited -- they'll see the good stuff in a couple of minutes anyway.

You think DC will make waves for it being close to supes origin? I like the idea and agree about it not being tried before.

After they signed Gunn to save the Suicide Squad franchise? Don't think so.

Holy crap! Not a horror guy so I will wait until this hits cable and I can fast forward bits I think I cannot handle and rewind to watch if they are not too grisly. I say again, holy crap!

I love that the Brightburn apes the Man of Steel trailer so closely, except for it's aiming for scary. You've got the rural landscape shots and they even used the same font and fade-in animation. It even plays off Superman Returns a bit. In that movie, Superman saved a plane full of passengers. In this one, Brightburn crashes it.

Ok I guess there needs to be one. It is no different than some creature landing on earth and terrorizing us. I don't see it as all that big of a revolution of the genre. This would be a rental.

I got to watch a screening last night and I'm not sure what I just watched. lol

Half of me liked it and the other half is like wtf did I just see. I will probably have to watch it again to figure out if I want to add the BD to my collection. Can't wait to discuss this one. lol

I don't why but I find the premise of this film very disturbing. Maybe it's because of what I know a being like that can do? Not having clue as how they'll stop him? It is fucking with me....
