CLARK KENT VOLANDO EN EL PRIMER EPISODIO DE LA CUARTA TEMPORADA 

 

Tom Welling
He’s Clark Kent on WB’s “Smallville.” Fans hoped he’d make the leap to the big screen.

The Indian Superman

Heh

I didn’t even know that such a film existed !

Krissh vs Superman

It was never going to be an equal fight.

Superman Returns is bigger and has Kevin Spacey as the brooding Lex Luthor compared to Gene Hackman’s portrayal of the villian in the Christopher Reeve films.

Brandon Routh is good. But he’s not Reeve. And Reeve will be the standard for all future supermen. Like Jeremy Irons is for Sherlock Holmes.

And the actress who plays Lois Lane is wanting compared to Margot Kidder. Kidder brought the life the essence of Lois Lane. Here she is shown as being apologetic for her achievements.

Couple of inconsistencies. Why doesn’t anyone notice that Clark and Superman have both been missing for 5 years? In Superman II after which the movie “Returns” is based, Lois suspects Clark of being Superman, has she given up her suspicions?

Superman’s kid? That takes off from a small part of the comic mythology, but which never evolved into a full story…I think it was called Superman 2020 or something like that, and Clark/Superman was shown as a grandfather.

Greatbong has the Krissh review here!

Free Tibet

I support the free tibet movement.

Do you?

Dear Friends, ..Let me refer you to these
blogs:

Indians have neither democracy as Hindu majority party BJP is NOT ruling nor secularism as mosques and churches determine election outcomes via their election violence, fraud, gimmicks…….Our issues in India have nothing much to do with any religion but everything to do with PEACE AND PROSPERITY. We definitely dont have any PEACE and very little or noPROSPERITY [with more than 70% poverty stricken and govt being largely dysfunctional to deliver on even BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS of RIGHT TO LIVE]……… My vision of ***nation-wide*** BOYCOTT OF ALL khan MOVIES AND CRICKET as well as WESTERN goods and services,……………. is based on two NON-VIOLENT Gandhian precepts/concepts-A. SOFT POWER of protests by writing to media, novels, movies, cartoons, poems….etc. etc; B. DIPLOMATIC OFFENSIVE of boycott proven by successful historic evidence of arabs boycotting Danish goods, Americans boycotting French goods, blacks boycotting the whites….etc. etc.in the current context of being in the brink of humanitarian crisis of unprecendented proportions –
a) too many poor like > 70%;…..
b) Kashmir jihadis well inside Hindustan;…
c) drugs being targetted on our youths like Rahul Mahajan;…….(poor poor little rich boy ! :D)
d) our women being seduced or abducted into conversion by forced marriagese) our children being seduced or forced into conversion bysweet-talk or enticements;…….
f) our nullified political space from nexus of commie/naxal+congi+minority evil axis; etc……….all pointing to the tyranny of the minority while we are the silent – nay, the silenced majority……….. The ruling exclusionary elite have not delivered any +ve results so far in 60 years; and their minorityism is not working as it is causing more unsafe and less free environment for the vast overwhelming of close to 1 bil masses in Nepal and India – i.e the civil society…….
FACT-1 We dont export much – not cars, nor air-planes nor heavy machinery or even weapons like china and the west do. We import even Ganesh idols from china and the chinese laughing obese/fat man for luck and “feng shui” [out of superstition!!!]…………..

…….;
FACT-2 ROSA PARKS led a boycott of the white americans for one full year and it DID produce +ve results with no -ve consequences, Arabs boycotting Danish goods, Americans boycotting French goods, blacksboycotting the whites….etc. etc.
FACT- 3 Our own boycott of khan movie ‘fanaa’ kept the zillion khans nervous …
SO, BOYCOTT WORKS! Boycott bollywood and cricket for social justice!

Heh, yeah, Boycott works, as a TV commentator 😉

And did the boycott of the movie make Aamir Khan nervous? Heck, no ! It only helped make Fanaa a hit !
