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

Something is wrong when you feel depressed after seeing a Superman movie
Terminator 2 is a fine example. It was a serious film: dealing with the apocalypse and the fight to prevent humanity from being exterminated. But, it had some carefully applied layers of humor to prevent it from being a completely bleak viewing experience.

"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
