And thats it. And in the end all of this is subject to opinion. Though if a good majority says that Superman is a better film, then its just that, a good majority which I can accept. But it doesn't change the fact that I don't think thats true.
You're right, it does all come down to opinion.
Generally speaking, I wouldn't except someone who isn't a big Superman fan to prefer STM over their favorite characters films. Especially since we've had some great films in this genre these last couple of years.
The one thing the can't be denied is that Donner's Superman is by far the most influential Superhero film ever made. It's the blueprint for the genre. Pretty fitting too, since the character itself was the blueprint for the Superhero comic.
There has yet to be another Superhero film made that will have, or has had the same impact as STM.
