Richard Donner United Kingdom, 1978

Log Lady's rating of the film Superman

Set the standard for all superhero movies to come, and think what you will about the blockbuster formula, Superman can handle the gaze of a modern viewer despite the dated special effects. The role of Superman is like tailor-made for Reeve and Luthor is one of those quirky villains that are just fun to watch (not as fun as the villains in Batman, though).
