A few days ago, I posted about the new Superman teaser trailer and I noted that the last bit of a song entitled Bridge of Khazad-dûm was used as the trailer's score. I notice this kind of stuff all of the time because I am such a soundtrack nerd. I mean, I have a copy of the soundtrack to Hoffa. No, really, I do. I like David Newman, okay?
I managed to watch about twenty minutes of the last Superman film. I hated it. It was quite the piece of filmatic shit. At the time, I suggested the executives in charge of that dung-heap have their genitals tied to a pole and twirled around a bit. I do recall reading some time later that many of those involved regretted the decisions to change the film's target demographic at the last minute. I guess it was a "successful" movie but diehard fans would have been disappointed.
I miss the Christoper Reeve versions of the Superman mythos. I haven't watched the Donner Cut of Superman II. I must put that flick on my library list.
