Four Super-Films For Super Cheap!



I was looking at something unrelated on Amazon and I stumbled across this.

You can order a 4-pack of the Chris Reeve Superman movies for $14.00. If you've got kids who haven't seen any Superman movies, or if you've just never bothered to add the Superman movies to your DVD library... this seems like a heck of a deal. (That's 492 minutes of Superman awesomeness... quite a bargain if you ask me.)

My guess is this is WB's way of clearing their warehouse full of Superman DVD's as Blu-Ray takes over, but why not let WB's overstocking be your super windfall?

Finally! Nuclear Man will be a permanent resident in my household!

That's a pretty good deal even if you don't watch III or IV.

Oh, but, you know... once it's in your house, how can you NOT watch Superman IV?

I still think there's a kernel of a good Superman movie in there, but its stunning to witness how it all went wrong. Not sure if this has the commentary track, but its a great commentary track as someone involved sort of details what went wrong for the duration of the movie.

I don't think I ever saw IV in its entirety, though I remember bits and pieces from cable. I don't think I have seen III since it was in theatres.

The League said...

Well, perhaps this is fate's way of finally getting you to watch III and IV.

But when you watch the movie, I expect you to wear a cape.

Amazon sez it's 2 discs, so I think it's two flipper discs with one movie on each side.

The League said...

Hmmm... must not be much in the way of extras, if that's the case.

Ah, well. It's $14.00. And saves the planet from 2 extra discs.

That said, it probably still includes the commentary tracks. Unless they're hosers and pulled the audio for the cheapie release.

I just love comparing Salkind's commentary on Supes II with Donner's on the Donner Cut DVD.
