I ♥ Superman
Of all the superheroes, he is my favourite. I just love the idea that there's this man that has all the powers in the world and all he wants to do is help.
And of course, the 1978 movie starring Christopher Reeve is one of my favourite movies. I didn't much like the movies that followed, though. It goes without saying that Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace were terrible. I know a lot of people liked Richard Lester's Superman II but I didn't. I much prefer the Dick Donner cut. I did also enjoy Superman Returns, even though I could nit pick at quite a few things. I just found it to be an overall good movie, but not a great representation of Superman as he is now.
The '78 Superman film was utterly fantastic. Reeve absolutely nailed the Clark/Superman dynamic and has yet to be matched by anyone else. I watched it again recently, and even though the movie is 31 years old and dated by most means, the whole thing still holds up really well. I encourage anyone that hasn't seen it yet to do so as soon as they can.
So here, discuss the Superman film franchise. The movies you liked, the movies you hated. The things you liked, the things you hated. Profess your love or hate for the character. And talk about what you'd like to see in the next Superman movie, whenever they get around to making it.
