I’m not a big Superman fan, I haven’t even seen III & IV. But, my ratings are as such:

Superman The Movie ****
Superman II **1/2 (for both cuts)
Superman Returns ***
Man of Steel *1/2

Don’t do drugs, unless you’re with me.

Superman I - 5/5
Superman II - 3/5
Superman III - 2/5
Superman IV - 0/5
Superman returns - this would be unfair to judge, I didn’t watch it till the end
Man of steel 0/5

Superman the Movie (5balls)
Superman II (4.5balls)
Superman Returns (3.5balls) criminally under-rated.
Superman III (2balls) only really worth watching for the bad Superman scenes.
Superman IV (1ball) watchable in a train wreck sense, so bad it’s good in places.
Man of Steel (0.5) ball. Only worth watching for the scenes set on Gallifrey and for the fraud in the Supersuit getting his boobs out.

Wow I’m not the only one that liked Returns then, I’m surprised.

The only reason I rank MoS so high was because I liked Zod in it.

Why you gotta Spock eyes at someone else’s opinion of films? Why do you care if somebody has different tastes than you?

Don’t do drugs, unless you’re with me.

I wasn’t posting it as a disagreement with someone’s opinion.

Meh.

I did like the part where Superman was bitten by the spider.

Author

Yeah, why would anyone think that a movie containing this is less than great?

I still need to see a Superman movie. (All of 'em. Any of 'em. Well, except the Fleischer Studios cartoons.)

I don’t remember that part.

It was right after the scene where his parents were murdered in an alleyway.

I’d list my ranking, but I haven’t seen any of the non-Reeve films (serials and animated) within recent memory, so I wouldn’t know how to rank them, so I’m not going to.

Suffice it to say, out of the Reeve films, I only like Superman III.

Divergent Universes
Dreams of a Randy Git-Fiend

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. So his parents are murdered, and then he’s bitten, and then he can all fly and shoot webs from his eyes and shit.

Superman II 6/10
Superman The Movie 5/10
Superman Returns 2/10
Man of Steel 0/10
Superman III haven’t seen
Superman IV haven’t seen

In all honesty, I’ve seen the first two only once and I don’t remember them that well. Not that I’ve seen the others more, Returns twice or three times, MoS once. Lois & Clark and Smallville are better than any of these (although they have their problems too).

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.
