This guy (despite his referring to Superman's costume as 'underwear'), in my opinion, nails what is so great about the Christopher Reeve version of Superman, and why that is the model that filmmakers (and comics writers) should follow,

The video also focuses on one of my very favorite moments in "Superman: The Movie": That reaction by Lois after when asks Superman if he likes pink. Such a small movement can say so much.

Luthor was a sociopathic narcissist with bad hair.

The hair bugged me, the rest didn't.

"Is that how a warped brain like yours gets its kicks? By planning the deaths of innocent people?"

"No...by causing the deaths of innocent people."

I mean, that's classic, no?

Margot’s tiny twitch is my favorite moment in the movie.

It’s genius. She catches herself just enough to be totally believable without at all being over the top. You believe that tough-as-nails gal reporter Lois Lane turns into a vulnerable, tongue-tied little girl when in the presence of this benevolent demigod. 

That entire rooftop scene is magic, really.

The Leaving Home piece from John Williams' score was used as the music for the In Memoriam segment in tonight's Oscars ceremony, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel.

By the way, La-La-Land Records recently reissued the score, remastered from the first-generation master tracks, and with some newly- discovered material.

Yes, I have the 2000 Rhino soundtrack release. Yes, I also have the 2008 remastered boxset of the scores for all four films.


And, yes, I ordered this new release!

YES!

An in-depth discussion with Mike Mattessino on the history of the score’s home media releases, as well as the new release from La-La-Land.

A curious choice. I checked the video on YouTube, and much as I love that whole soundtrack, that particular piece seemed to have a few too many dramatic flourishes to be really appropriate to the task at hand.

Yeah, I know. grump grump grump

As did I! With shipping, it costs a small fortune, but what the hell.

The new La-La-Land CD set is glorious. Listening to it, now.
