I think that if I watched Superman III and Superman IV for Worst Movies Ever and I didn’t watch Superman II first, Kevin would hunt me down, find out where I live and smother me in my sleep.
I could list all the various things that are great and good about Superman II, but we’d be here all damn year with me listing out the ways. I actually much prefer it over the first movie and I think the only thing I waffle on is the special effects. Sure, they look dated but I can’t figure out how corny they would’ve been when Superman II initially hit theaters.
I guess to put it in perspective and save you from a long, rambling post about how lovely I find this one, I’ll say that I put Superman II as the cinematic equivalent of two fingers of whiskey on the rocks. And as anyone who really knows me well understands, I love me some whiskey, so that should put it high on the list of movies to love.
Man, now I really miss Christopher Reeve.
