Are there any fans of these movies around here? I think Superman (1978) still holds up as one of the best superhero origin movies ever made, and Superman II is one of the few sequels I would classify as arguably as good as its predecessor. The following sequels weren't very good, but the first two films in the series are among my very favorite movies of all time.

After I saw the first Superman film, I remember briefly having a slight crush on Margot Kidder's Lois Lane. Years later, I had the opportunity to meet her and get my picture taken with her at a convention. It was a pretty cool celebrity encounter for my first ever convention experience.

Unfortunately Margot has passed away at the age of 69. Farewell Lois Lane. You will be missed.

I can't believe it, either. While we were well into another generation of live-action Superman adventures by the time I first saw it, my first viewing was still sometime in the late '90s, about twenty years ago now. Man, time really does fly.

What's even more insane is we haven't had another decent Superman movie after all those years.

I agree. I do think Superman II was a good movie, but after that one all of the following movies have definitely left a lot to be desired. The last two Reeve movies were far too cheesy, and everything after that was to the opposite extreme. Superman works best as a character when there's just a touch of humor without going overboard and a hopeful tone to the story. I tend to like the TV adaptations of Superman so much more than the movie adaptations for this very reason.
