I want all of the Superman fans to consider that the Man of Steel’s logo is in the form of a diamond. I have no doubt that he would be a supporter of man-made diamonds. In Superman III (1983), he even created a diamond from a lump of coal using the pressure and heat from his hands. Superman would love the fact that red and blue diamonds are readily available thanks to man-made diamonds. He would want Lois Lane to have the most remarkable diamonds in existence. Superman would never approve of diamond mining operations. After all, he knew what having your planet destroyed feels like.
I saw Superman (1978), Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983), and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (1987) at drive-in movie theaters while growing up. I was three years old when I saw the first two films. I enjoyed the heck out of them. I saw the third film when I was six years old. It ended up being my favorite of all four films. I did not care for the fourth film which I saw at the age of ten.
Christopher Reeve was perfect for the Superman role. He was even perfect for the role of Clark Kent. He was brilliant in all four films. The third film has been criticized as a weak sequel. If you accept it for the action-comedy that it is supposed to be, you will probably see why it is my favorite. I think most viewers would choose the second film as the best of the bunch. It is definitely the most exciting one.
I must admit that the second film’s soundtrack is the one that appeals to me the most. Ken Thorne recomposed the work of John Williams from the first film and contributed some original work. A portion of this soundtrack is currently on YouTube. I enjoy it on a regular basis.
