Roughly, in order of appearance:

  • Brando's comatose performance as Jor-El.
  • Jor-El's insipid dialogue.
  • The framing and pacing of the Krypton scenes in general.
  • The pretentious, incongruous Christ allusions.
  • That Clark had to spend 12 years getting brainwashed by the ghost of Jor-El in order to become Superman.
  • Kidder's Lois. Frankly, I don't find her beautiful enough to play Lois Lane, and she lacks the charisma to compensate.
  • Reeve's Klutz Kent.
  • Hackman's Luthor, Otis, et al.
  • The Lois/Superman romance, which I find inauthentic and unconvincing.
  • The dumbshit "turning back time" ending.

Quote:What is your favorite portrayal of Superman in film or television?

Bud Collyer is my favourite Superman. Dean Cain is my favourite Clark.

Quote:What do you think of the sequels?

  • Superman II has Zod & co. and the diner scenes, which I adore. That's about all I like from the film.
  • Superman III is slightly underrated. Annette O'Toole's Lana is a far better love interest than Kidder's Lois, and the "Clark vs. Evil Superman" fight is perfection. It's still a mostly shit movie, though.
  • Superman IV is cheap trash and rightly regarded as such.
  • Superman Returns is an uninspired rehash made by a hack.

Batman Returns is also a christmas movie Big Grin

Returns being a superhero movie, which it objectively, empirically, verifiably is.
