Also, that ‘belt’ pic with Pixie is ace. One of the guy’s arms is probably bigger than her entire body. Madness.

Comment on Retro Review – Superman 1978 by Andy M http://www.worldofsuperheroes.com/2014/07/retro-review-superman-1978/#comment-863 Thu, 21 Aug 2014 18:09:47 +0000 http://www.worldofsuperheroes.com/?p=53004#comment-863 Ah, the time-travel deus-ex-machina – a much loved cop out for any script :)

Robot Chicken have parodied Superman’s more ‘curious’ powers a few times (one clip can be seen at http://youtu.be/aPB4-EW2Fck ).

You hit the nail on the head by saying Donner didn’t make the mistake of grounding the character in reality. The recent Man of Steel film had the character try to fly by jumping, then jumping a bit more, then struggling to beat gravity and jump further, until gravity just gave up on the whole thing and let him fly. By showing the struggle it made it seem more unbelievable that he ever flew. Whereas Donner just had him rip open his shirt, show a ‘S’ logo, and away he went. We didn’t need a reason as to how he could do it, we simply accepted it.

A brilliant film, and one which stand the test of time (if not the test of time travel).

Despite the wonderful CGI films released over the last few years, it is still, with the possible exception ot Tim Burtons Batman, the best Superhero film ever.
Donner never fell into the trap, as so many directors do now, of grounding the character in reality. Superman is a figure with the powers of a god. By all the laws of physics he could never exist. You can ground James Bond in reality or Indianna Jones or even Batman but not Superman. Superman is fantasy not science fiction and Donner realised that. It is a whimsical film, maybe a little tongue in cheek but it has one essential quality, heart.
The only problem I have with the film is my pet hate, time travel. If Superman can go back in time, presumably by travelling faster than the speed of light to solve a problem, would he ever need to do anything in real time. He’d simply wait till disater strikes, then go back in time and prevent it happening. Anyway don’t get me started on the whole time paradox thing. It makes my head hurt.
Steve
