Okay, here we go, there was great discussion between us on who would start the debate open on this, and so here we go, which are your favourite scenes from the film series.....I've put 3 to begin with, but put as many as you wish too....

Not written in any order, simply just here for their impact and 'awe'

Superman saves Lois in Superman The Movie



The first time we are open to Superman in public knowledge, great dramatic effect, Strong SFX for the time, and of course that immortal exchange between them...

'Always Remember Us'



The swelling score as it builds, the accumulation of Clark knowing his destiny and the leaving of home and Martha.

Clark v Superman from Superman III

- Part One

- Part Two

Ok, much of III was poorly executed, Lester was simply not up to the task, he was wrong for the tone of Superman IMO but this scene demonstrates all of Reeve's ability in conveying both sides of the coin, (there are three sides to it, but that's another story), it also coveys brilliantly the traits of Clark and Superman's own relationship between themselves, not just evil v good due to poisoning.

And another, from Superman II, and I know this is a scene from Lester's cut but I think it demonstrates Reeve's dual acting and character referencing well....

30 years ago, in no small part due to the incompetence of Cannon Films, Christopher Reeve made his last flight as the Man of Steel!

I really would love it if I could find a cut of Superman II that's perfect, closest I've got is the Frank Reynold's cut. But it didn't have the Paris scene, even though I like the scene where Lois jumps out the window from the Donner Cut I do prefer the Paris scene. Maybe there's a way to have both.

It might not be too difficult, but having the Paris scene might mean having to leave out the missile from STM freeing the villains, otherwise it's kind of redundant.
