So I'm watching all of the various extras and behind-the-scenes documentaries on my SUPERMAN DVDs and Blu-rays, in anticipation of finally seeing this in the theaters on Monday...

It still kind of boggles my mind that Christopher Reeve was only 24 years old when he appeared in the first film... he seems so much wiser and more mature beyond such a young age, like he could have been at least 34.

Yet another minor miracle he helped bring to the role.

Urgh... how Cinemark/Fathom Events continue to botch this just boggles my mind...

My local Cinemark theater, which is NOT having any SUPERMAN showings at all, is instead hosting about seven different showings of something called SHANKAR'S 2.0... in three different languages!

I'm all for highlighting foreign films whenever possible, but they couldn't even participate and have one showing of SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE???

Finally saw it on the big screen (it only took me 40 years--good grief!!)... more final thoughts tomorrow, but I will say I got surprisingly emotional during the "Can You Read My Mind" sequence... not so much because of the admittedly silly lyrics and line-reading, but just being hit with the realization (in the middle of the scene) that both leads are now no longer with us.

Big ol' lump in the throat during that one.  Film is forever, as they say...

Took my girlfriend to see it, she had never seen it. She didn't love it, but liked it. Best part was when Superman went back in time and she said: "But that's forbidden!"

Official 40th anniversary today... released to the masses on December 15, 1978.

Plus:  A nice little write-up over at BirthMoviesDeath, including a comments section that doesn't want to make you pull your hair out, for once!
