Re: Favorite Superman Movie

Superman II (1980) with a couple of great Diner Bully scenes and Terence Stamp cast perfectly as General Zod. The "General, would you care to step outside?" line was powerful but the city fight was constrained by that era's special effects. I'm not sure the amnesia hypnosis was necessary after all the lovebirds had been through.

Man of Steel, hands down.

With all due respect to Christopher Reeve, it's the first Superman movie I wasn't bored with, no corny scenes, no magic tricks, worthy opponents plus great battle scenes (loved the Battle of Smallville). You actually see Kal learning to control his powers and slowly becoming Superman. Fans complaining about him killing Zod or all the destruction never read the comics (especially when he fought Doomsday).

Re: Favorite Superman Movie

I was 9 when Superman The Movie came out.

I must have seen it 7 times in the theater. My mom and dad took me every weekend for almost 2
Months (back then is was a $1.50 a ticket). Superman was my hero as a kid.

That movie made me believe a man can fly. So awesome for its time. I grew up watching reruns of Superman the BW series with George Reeves
And Batman and Robin with Adam West and Dick Ward.

So it is a tie between Superman and Superman II as I love both movies.

Man of Steel is also awesome. Loved it. But Christopher Reeves Superman holds a special place in my heart and my childhood.

ditto for me....was blown away by superman the movie. even had the glow-in the-dark kryptonite. lol. that movie was ahead of it's time imo. reeve really embodied the essence of the character and was spot on in his betrayal. also, lois lane was perfectly cast as well. II had a bit more action, so it barely edges out the first movie for me. man of steel was good in it's own right, but cavill didn't have nearly the same effect as reeve. the special effects were definitely better, but that was about it.

Re: Favorite Superman Movie

Funny....I remember I read the novelization of Superman III before I saw the movie. The book was actually damn good. Then I saw the movie....it was kinda of a mess. Cheaper effects....uneven story.

Watched it a few months ago....and enjoyed the heck out of it.
