I’m going through all movies based on DC comics, starting with Superman: The Movie. So far I’ve watched the following:
Superman: The Movie
Superman IV: The Quest for Peace
The Spirit (1987)
Return of Swamp Thing
My thoughts so far: Louis Jourdan was wasted as the villain in both Swamp Thing movies. He played a good villain but deserved better scripts and direction. I was impressed with how good the Swamp Thing costume looked, especially in the sequel.
Superman: The Movie and Superman II were both good and Superman IV was better than I thought it would be. It did a decent job of blending humor with action. Superman III was lousy and Supergirl was awful.
The Spirit would have been a fun series back in the mid/late 80s and it’s a shame it didn’t get picked up.
I’m looking forward to the Batman movies that are next on my list and believe the worst is behind me. It’s been a LOT of Krypton/Metropolis and the swamp so far!
Any thoughts on the films I’ve already seen? Has anyone else done a project like this and has any suggestions or thoughts?
