Superman Flyby
In 2002 Warner Bros was developing a new Superman movie with then screenwriter JJ Abrams called Superman: Flyby, with Brett Ratner hired to direct. Abrams’ screenplay for the film would have reinvented Superman, incorporating a bunch of new ideas that angered fans when a negative script review was posted on the internet. The film was abandoned and never went into production. Mr. Sunday Movies has created a video essay giving the complete history of Superman Flyby. Watch that now after the jump.

everything wrong with Armageddon

The guys at CinemaSins have returned with a new Everything Wrong With… video essay. This time the video takes a look at Michael Bay‘s 1998 feature film Armageddon. Some people seem to hate these videos, but it seems like few can resist from clicking through and hitting the play button. I’m sure we’ll see fewer complaints in the comments this time, with a 14-minute video making fun of a Michael Bay movie.

That said, I love so much about this movie, and Bay’s earlier efforts when he had a producer that was powerful enough to say “no” every once in a while. Watch Everything Wrong With Armageddon, embedded after the jump.

Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.
