Superman: The Movie (1978)

With work around the corner, I couldn't think of much to say. Christopher Reeve played the dual role of Clark Kent and Superman well.

Superman / Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve)

Instant Comments:
1: Wow, there was a lot of exposition. From Jor-el on Krypton, a snapshot of Clark as a teenager, and then to the Daily Planet.

Jor-El (Marlon Brando), Lara (Susannah York), and Baby Kal-El (Lee Quigley)

A: "Oh, of course not, Lois. I mean why would anyone want a total stranger to look like a fool?"

Baby Clark Kent (Aaron Smolinski), Ma Kent (Phyllis Thaxter), and Pa Kent (Glenn Ford)

A: Lol that scene where Lois is able to continue moving forward simply by holding hands with Clark and then begins to fall when their hands separate... (ridiculous under various possible assumptions about how Superman's flight may work)

Lois Lane (Margot Kidder)

1: I can sense the age of the film, particularly from the scenes that involve Superman flying. And more so from the scenes where he's taking Lois Lane out. It was kind of ridiculous for Superman to reveal his weaknesses, whether explicitly or implicitly. Oh well.

Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman)

1: Yes, that sort of ridiculous gets mentioned as a flaw in the story, whereas him flying around the Earth to turn back time gets to fall under science-fiction rules of possibility.

LOL, this HISHE (How It Should Have Ended) hits the spot. I love the conversation between Superman and Batman at the end.
