    That intro is better than ever. 😍 Also, when you had that slapstick montage, I laughed for the first 10 seconds and then… no, too much slapstick.

    I thought Lupa’s review of Superman 2 was kinda overly nit-picky and forgot that both cinema and comic books were very different in 1979-80, but yes… Superman 3 was an ill-advised WTF? fest and a major failure that doesn’t work in any era.

    I find this plot completely unbelievable… because it would be impossible to straighten the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It started leaning as they built it and they tried to correct it by increasing the height of the “lower” side. So even if you could correct the lean (which you couldn’t – at least not just by pushing it upright), it would still look lopsided. Takes me right out of the movie!

    It’s amazing that with the varied and diverse Rogue’s gallery that existed for Superman over the decades (Brainiac, Toyman, Mr. Myxyzsptlyk, Metallo, etc.) these movies would always go with either Lex Luthor or some bargain basement mad scientist as the villain.

    Failing Comedy: The SKARD1 Story.

     

    As a Superman fan, I can give a marginal pass to a lot of goofy stuff like the elastic flying ‘S’ shield from 2 or his ‘heat vision rays can rebuild walls’ power from 4, but this…I don’t even know what they trying for with this. It was like a bad ’60-’70’s live-action Disney comedy, but with Superman and Richard Pryor instead of Dean Jones.

    BTW, Like the new intro, Allison.

    The worst part of the movie is the total missed opportunity of having the villain be Brainiac.   It as always felt like the art director/set dresser must have thought that was what they had in mind as he built the set for the computer as the 3 circles motif it all over the place in the set.

    Think about it a seemingly inept guy suddenly becomes a super smart computer programming genius coming up with plans for some super powerful computer that then tries to destroy the world.   That’s just how Brainiac would try to get himself created.
