Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) – Sidney J. Furie

  It’s more tights and flights as I continue with the exploration of the cinematic version of Superman with the Sci-Fi Chronicles book as my guide. Christopher Reeve’s time portraying the character of Superman comes to a close with this film, and he so needed a better movie to go out on. The only things…

Superman III (1983) – Richard Lester

  My time with Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) continues during my exploration of the Sci-Fi Chronicles book, and where nostalgia will forgive a lot of the things in Superman II, it can’t even pretend with Superman III; though, admittedly, there are a few sequences and story threads I like.

Superman II (1980) – Richard Lester

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles book just keeps paying off, I’m loving this incredibly large tome, and I can’t believe how quickly I’m working my way through it (admittedly I’ve seen, and reviewed a lot of the stuff before). Having previously reviewed Superman: The Movie, I moved forward to the next title, Superman II. Now, I…

Da Vinci’s Demons Season 1 – Blu-Ray

Man of Steel (2013) – Zack Snyder

A disappointing mess. That’s what Warner, DC Comics, Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder have served up. I love the character of Superman! I’ve got comics piled in my apartment featuring the familiar red cape and blue suit, I liked Superman Returns, there are even moments in III that I enjoy (even I won’t touch Quest…

The Thing (1982) – John Carpenter

The amazing science fiction year that was 1982 continues! As much as I love Escape From New York and Big Trouble In Little China, I think this is probably my favorite John Carpenter film, and I was so glad it’s on the 101 Sci_Fi Movies list. Based on the 1951 classic The Thing From Another…
