The epitome of what Superman is meant to be
I still find it amazing that for over forty years, we’ve seen countless adaptations and (mis)interpretations of Superman, and yet not one of them can even begin to compare to this masterpiece. Perhaps one day some writers and directors will get together and realize how to recreate this brand of magic. Until then, we will always have Donner’s films to fill that role.
Best opening title sequence… ever!
We all have unique reasons for loving a film. That’s what makes cinema so magical. It’s personal. You can love the meat of the movie, or you can love the trimmings.
There’s a bunch of good stuff here. Most people my age will refer to “Superman” as THE definitive superhero film. None will ever take it’s place. A position no doubt dictated by the age we were when first viewing it. As with films like “Star Wars” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, WHEN you experience them is just as important as HOW you experience them.
As we age, youth’s eyes fade. Cynicism creeps in. Experience leads us to see the many injustices this life offers and we become more critical… less likely to accept that which we would rather believe. After all, an adult who clings to the youthful ideals of wonder is simply naive… right?
To this day, the opening title sequence for “Superman” fills me with the same magical joy it did over twenty years ago. Never was a score so perfectly crafted around a film. John Williams and Richard Donner created such an indelible experience that over 25 yrs later, Bryan Synger will use the same music and theme to bring the magic to a new generation of wondrous eyes.
As for me though, this will always remain the best.
