Well I disagree with you and wish you and yours great misfortune, but you're entitled.

What did Enemy of the State have to do with it?

I liked it better, and I think it came out the same year. Or at least I saw it in the same cinema.

Dissenting and likely to be unpopular opinion: I think the first is superior to anything that followed. Terrance Stamp was obviously excellent but the second film as a whole does not share the production value of the first and suffers for it. Still love Superman 2 but it should be a notch below the first (even more so if you count the special edition).

I believe Superman 4 is left out from that trilogy graph the whole retarded nukes b gone and NUCULAR MAN plot. We say Batman and Robin was the most retarded Super Hero movie but we forget Superman 4...

I haven't seen it yet, but I hear is almost as good as Batman Begins. I'm up for anything that reboots a classic super heroes series to a more modern realistic platform.

I'd recommend it in that case.
The only thing missing is a super-powered villain. That absence continues to necessitate Kryptonite as a plot device. In the sequel, I'd like to see Supes go up against someone who can give him a run for his money.

Also, the Superman/Batman crossover movie is finally supposed to take place with both franchises current actors/incarnations. Won't be for a few years yet, but it'll certainly be something to look forward to.

I'd like to see a Spiderman/Wolverine crossover movie, but that's never going to happen. Should really have mentioned that in the other movies thread, but anyhow...

The Death of Superman would be good as a movie. I would like to see more of a Superman and Brainiac, they could make Brainiac look pretty fucking cool.

I thought Luther's plan was a bit impractical in Superman Returns.

But I enjoyed it, especially how they visualised just how bloody strong the guy is, they could never quite get that across in the older films.

I was too busy collecting Spider-man back issues when Death of Superman was released and I wasn't too eager to buy all the titles that it spawned (was it 4?). Did I miss out?

Pretty much Superman and some other DC heroes trying their best (and hilariously failing sometimes) to stop a murderous rock monster from a destructive rampage with aim of destroying Metropolis.

Sadly, it was missing Batman frown.

Ok first there is a Death of Superman film. Granted it is straight to DVD animation but it is still pretty good with Adam Baldwin as Superman and James Masters as Lex Luthor. Still i enjoyed it as i have the majority of the DC direct to DVd films with Justic League The New Frontier being my fave. The plot was slightly different due to time contrants but still good (main parts missing are the other heroes getting whooped by Doomsday and the four alternates after Superman died)

-Edit: if you are looking for the film it is called Superman Doomsday

As for Superman 2 being better than 1, well if they left Richard Donner on the film it would have been much better. The Richard Donner cut is suprior ven if some of the scens are unfinished as it does not have some of the stipid slapstick that was placed in the theatrical and would continue to plague Superman 3.

How accurate to the comic is it though? do we see Guy Gardner being a dick?

Well he would not be Guy Gardner if he was not being a dick but no he is not in the film. None of the Justice Leauge are in fact, probably to simplify the story. Also no lead up to Hal Jordan going batshit crazy and becoming Parallax.

Going by Rotten Tomatoes scores (82, 82, 93):


I think they're all good personally.

I think they're all crap. I fell asleep during the first one, was bored through the second one, and have only seen bits of the third, but it seems pretty like the other two: crap.

I found the first to be painfully mediocre too but I found the latter two great.

I probably should watch the first again...

Bourne had some decent action. At times. Everything in them that wasn't a chase scene wasn't terribly interesting, however. Modern action films have no sense of fun. frown

Wasn't Bourne #1 a re-make anyway? How did it compare to the original like, I wonder?

Time to buy that little beauty, and thanks for making me look up why Superman 2 is a bit crap. Got the Donner version in the mail now and cant wait, and I cant believe I let the release pass me by.

But Alien 3 was nowhere near 1 or 2. It's this comparison that's why it's so lowly ranked in the trilometer. Also because the original trailer promised a more Terran war kind of a movie, which didn't happen.

Jesus fuck... you've missed out on some cornerstones of our culture there.

Whilst i've seen most of the films on that list (or at least one or two of each trilogy), i think i've still not seen some "Must-see" classics. For instance Apocalypse now. I want to try put together a list a 10 movies that i must watch before the year is out.

So! PEELers! What are some movies that I absolutely HAVE to see?

Watch the original Night of the Living Dead, and also watch Steel Dawn. Then go get drunk and watch something at random. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Quite, but this thread is for trilogies. Regardless of how many installments said trilogies actually ended up having.

Anything with Bogart. Most notably Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, and The African Queen.

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly (and any other Spaghetti Western by Sergio Leone.

Each and every Hitchcock movie.

The original Planet of the Apes, but none of the sequels and certainly not the remake.

Forbidden Planet - the father of modern sci-fi.

...There's some good ones to start on.

All the Evil Dead films, but especially the last two.

Escape from New York.

The first two Mad Maxes (the third feels more like a retelling of the second. Except that there are kids in it. I hate kids).

Just about everything Kubrick's done except for Eyes Wide Shut. I would also give Spartacus a miss, personally.

All of Bruce Lee's films, though I'd give Game of Death a miss and just watch the fight footage from the Enter the Dragon two-disc DVD instead.

Coldy's got some good picks, I'd go with them, too.

Ed Wood, so you can remind yourself that Tim Burton was fairly interesting once.

Most Kurosawa films hold up pretty well, though Seven Samurai is veeeeeeeeeery long.

The Blade Runner director's cut. Probably the best version of the film.

Most Michael Man films before Miami Vice are pretty good to excellent.

Oh, and George Romero's Dead series, though Land of is a significant drop in qualitiy.

Anything by John Carpenter in the 80's, especially The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China.

I'll put more down if they come to me.
