the drudge report is reporting that christopher reeve has died.
"superman the movie" and chris reeve were my favorites of all time. even more than luke skywalker and star wars!
reeve had a lot in common with mark hamill. really just one big role in their careers. but superman and superman 2 were really good movies.
if anyone wants to debate the politics of stem cell research, please start your own thread in the rancor pit. this is just for the fond memories of superman.
anyone have a favorite scene from the original superman movie?
mine was when superman pulled lois lane's car out of the ground, ripped the door off only to discover lois was dead. then with a tremendous yell of agony, he flew off into the sky and flew around the world so fast, he turned back time.
just awesome! .........top that spiderman!
i also loved the scene where superman saved lois lane and the helicopter from falling off the daily planet. the image of clark kent running across the street, pulling his shirt open to reveal the "S" and going in an out that spinning door were priceless.
memorable quotes from that scene:
"Say Jim, WHOOOOOO!!! that's a bad outfit!!! WHOOOO!!!!!"
"don't worry miss, i've got you."
"if you've got me, who's got you????"
"who are you?"
if warner bros can't top the 1978 superman movie and find someone who can properly fill chris reeve's boots and cape, i hope they just don't make the movie! i know there were actors who played the role before and after christopher reeve, but in my opinion, he was the best.
