Superman II

By Tom Keogh

Director Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night) took over the franchise with this first sequel in the series, though the film doesn't look much like his usual stylish work. (Superman III is far more Lesteresque.) Still, there is a lot to like about this movie, which finds Superman grappling with the conflict between his responsibilities as Earth's savior and his own needs of the heart. Choosing the latter, he gives up his powers to be with Lois Lane (Margot Kidder), but the timing is awful: three renegades from his home planet, Krypton, are smashing up the White House, aided by the mocking Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman). The film isn't nearly as ambitious as its predecessor, but the accent on relationships over special effects (not that there aren't plenty of them) is very satisfying.

Your Memories Shared!

"When I saw SUPERMAN: The Movie, I couldn't wait to see part 2. I was so in love with him as a child that I wanted to be Lois Lane. Superman 2 made my heart pound because this was when Clark Kent was discovered as Superman when his hand didn't burn in the fire. It was so romantic for Lois to find out that way & spill her heart out to him. Back then, I didn't know what happened after he became a mortal man at his Fortress of Solitude up until I got old enough to know what sex and love was. WHOO WHOO!!! Lois had sex with Superman!!! What a lucky woman she was.

A memorable song is still lingering in my head & I wish I knew the name of it. If anyone knows, PLEASE let me know. It was the song playing in the background of the restaurant with Mr. Wonderful.........remember???? This was after Superman beat the 3 villains, then he gave Lois a memory loss kiss and got her the freshly squeezed OJ. I need to know what the name of that song is. Thanks!!"
