Christopher Reeve in SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE

Celebrating the arrival of the new SUPERMAN Blu-ray box set, this week’s Cinefantastique Laserblast Home Video Podcast takes a look back at the five Warner Brothers films: SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE; SUPERMAN II; SUPERMAN III; SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE; and SUPERMAN RETURNS. Guest Orenthal V. Hawkins joins CFQ stalwarts Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski for a wide-ranging discussion of what made the films good, bad, or indifferent – and just what can we expect from Zack Snyder’s upcoming SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL?
Also up for discussion: GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS on DVD and Blu-ray; CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: JOURNEY OF MAN on 3D Blu-ray; and the distinction between the DEEP RED BLu-ray disc and the “Uncensored English Language” DVD. Plus, the announcement that Tim Burton’s THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS will arrive in a 3D Blu-ray version this August. Listen in for all the details…

  1. Nathan Fillion is just one of those actors who can read the phone book with his shirt off, and I’ll be just fine. ;^)
    Seriously, when Fillion adds his voice talent to an animated extravaganza, I am there.

  2. You know, Hawk, as soon as I saw that you were going to discuss the Superman movies, my first thought was “I wonder how long it will be before he works in Superman’s Repair Great Wall of China Vision into the discussion?” But I confess that I never thought “How long before he works in a reference to Pumaman?” Honestly, listening to your discussion makes me glad that I only saw the first two Superman movies. Watching the others might have killed my love for Christopher Reeve and for that beautiful, sweeping John Williams music.
    Can you read my mind? *SIGH*
    Oh, and I’m also a big fan of The Phantom Empire serial starring Gene Autry. I was especially entertained by the subplot of many of the episodes, which was along the lines of “Uh-Oh. If we don’t escape from the kingdom of Murania and make it back to Radio Ranch to perform a live song for our show, we could lose the ranch!” (I would tell you what happens, but I wouldn’t want to spoil the cliffhanger …)
    Anyway, this was a great discussion, guys. Thanks for sharing the fun!
