Default Re: Superman III - The Official Thread

Just re-watched this. I don't know about you guys, but I think this movie contains the best Chris Reeve Superman performance. He's manlier and tougher in this movie IMO. I usually associate Reeve's Superman with the silver age and Bronze age Superman from the comics, but in this movie, he seems to be channeling Golden Age Superman which is my favorite version of the character. Anyway, I fastforwarded all the parts without Chris Reeve.

I watched this for the first time. Way too much silly stuff, but there was a lot to like. Really loved the 'evil Superman' scenes. The ending with the computer was crazy. Richard Pryor skiing off a building - WTF - that's what I mean about silly. A bit of a mixed bag for me, still enjoyable though.

Best villain in a Superman film - Christopher Reeve.

When he's coming on to Lana - uber-creepy.

When he's fighting Clark - terrifying.

I agree. In the first two movies he's charming and smiles at everyone, in Superman III he takes charge, shouts instructions at people and intimidates bad guys.

In addition, he's in the best shape in this movie, and he has the best wig. That's right, Reeve wore a wig in all four movies to get a proper Superman hairstyle.

People always mention that Superman III has too much comedy and too much Pryor, but they rarely mention just how superbly made some of it is. The junkyard fight is one fo the best scenes in any superhero movie ever made.

The junkyard scene and the scenes with Lana were good. I just wonder what went through people's minds when they saw the opening credits full of slapstick rather than the opening credits of Superman I and II.
