    I thought that pic above of the log through the truck was confirmed to be from another movie ( Twister, I think?? )......

    Haha I think most people have!

    Seriously though I actually enjoyed Superman III a HELL of a lot, especially as a kid!

    On an unrelated note, I'm listening to Hans Zimmers DKR score and if he can do something half as amazing as this on MOS, then we're in for a treat!!

    **** yea dude ! I remember loving the whole superman fighting the supercomputer ending ( closest thing we have gotten to Brainiac lmao)

    Oh and Evil superman vs clark still is awesome. Probably the best scene out of that whole movie.

    Barring administrative rights, I would hope I was the only one silly enough to think a company wouldn't actively blot out or rather suppress the a buzz meter to their own film.
    Seems like something a Rival studio would fully get behind.

    in any case, aren't I special...

    If we're including Superman Returns then the Plane Sequence is still the greatest scene I've ever seen on film so that would win but the original 4 the Clark vs Superman scene is definitely my favourite. I liked the battle in Superman II but too many stupid moments ruin it like the guy in the phone booth or the guy on skates. I think they improved it in the Donner cut with the punch and Non flying into the Statue of Liberty as the Superkick in the Lester Cut looked shoddy.

    The richard donner cut of II is most definitely better.

    Definitely :up: I really wish he'd had the chance to complete it originally. I'm intrigued to know what ending they would've come up with as they'd used the original intended SII ending for the first movie.

    My friends back home all join in on this private joke that Superman is lactose intolerant. I think it's just to shut me up :funn: Every time I start talking about supes, they start calling him lame cause he's allergic to milk :p

    I actually think the Donner Cut is way worse but, in all honesty, I think both versions are not that good. Everything went downhill after STM.

    Agreed, same with Tim Burton's Batman.

    I'm with you actually! Not way worse but I don't think it's as good.

    I think the main reason is that some of the scenes were not completed so they used screen test footage and that kind of takes me out of the movie. But there are a lot of things I prefer about it and visa versa!

    In particular, the whole "General, would you care to step outside, please" scene, it was much much better in Lester´s cut, tbh

    Completely. And I actually prefer Lara talking to Clark about Love instead of Jor-El and the Eiffel tower beginning too.

    Yeah but I meant I wonder what ending Donner would've used back in the day cause I can guarantee it wouldn't have been turning back time or the memory kiss.
