Default Re: Superman the Movie = STILL the greatest superhero movie

Not sure if I'd call it numero uno but it's certainly up there. I love S:TM. The cast was so terrific. Reeve remains the best Superman to date, I've always liked Hackman's Luthor, Kidder was terrific, and even Brando's small role as Jor El was quite memorable.

And I'm one of the few who doesn't have a problem with Superman reversing the earth. Really the only thing about the movie I can say I simply flat out hate is Otis. The one character that dates the movie with his silly bumbling antics and even his theme grinds my gears. Love the movie overall though, the second as well. I like to pretend the third and fourth don't exist and I'll certainly never watch them again. (Just watched the fourth about a month ago for the first time)

The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long.
