Superman IV The Quest for Peace
I love ‘em all, part IV included. The first one gets my vote because:
- The helicopter scene
- The movie changed audience’s perception towards superhero movies and what they can accomplish.
- The multiple locations: Krypton, Smallville, Metropolis.
- The helicopter scene.
- The goodbye to Martha scene.
- The “transformation” scene in Lois’ apartment.
- The heli… ok you get it.
I think second favorite would be a tougher vote for me. I’d have a hard time choosing between II and III.
If Donner had finished Superman II himself, it would be my favorite.
But that didn’t happen, so I have to choose the first one.
On first thought I went Donner Cut of Superman II, but thinking about it a little more I was thinking about it the more I think I need to revisit it.
I had to go with number 1 cause that was the year i was born, and that was my very first Superman movie I ever saw.
The Christopher Reeve’s run gets a lot of poop but to me it was great, especially for that time frame, not a lot of CGI, actors had to work out and were not given cgi suits or a ton of prop work muscle suits. An Christopher Reeve’s to me was a top knotch Superman , an for me the only one who can stand next to him is Henry Cavill and to me it is a shame he is being shelved.
A lot of actors fear being a one hit wonder, Leonard Nemoy had a hard time shaking Spock, he even wrote two books one being something like I am not Spock, and the other I am Spock I think.
anyhow, nothing wrong with being a great one character actor, beats being a crappy actor known for screwing up a great character.
