Re: The "not-so-great-thou-art-official-Donner" thread -
The Donner movies are flawed but not nearly enough to not deserve to be called classics. I feel that lately there's just a lot of negativity around them. Some people think that they're in the minority when they criticize them and that everyone loves the movies, but so many people are saying "Am I the only one who doesn't think the Donner movies are so great?" or saying the new movie should avoid anything Donneresque like the plague. It's reputation has really taken a hit lately, and I think part of it is due to Superman Returns.
Superman with realistic physics isn't Superman.
