Re: Superman TM 1978 vs Man of Steel 2013, was the world ready, what do you think?
I think both movies are great. I do not think STM would work today. Well only the Krypton part stands the test of time. Afterwards the film gets old.
MOS aesthetically is the best Superman film ever made. As a story it's OK. But as an origin film I find it difficult to differentiate yourself as they tried so hard to do (may have been the film's downfall, though I love MOS).
Both are good. STM as a story would not be a classic if it came out today. Reeve was just so good and captivating. He carried that film.
