MWIRE Upcoming Episodes DC Spotlight Volume 2 Superman Films

Coming up on MWIRE Movie Week In Review we’ll be returning to The DC Spotlight. This time Volume 2: Superman Films. I knew when Steve and I finalized the concept for Movie Week In Review I wanted to dedicate a portion of the episodes to The Batman and Superman Films. Batman has had his run from Episode 25-30. Now starting at Episode 51 and going through Episode 56 Superman will get coverage. We will be talking about Superman I-IV, Supergirl, and UGH Superman Returns. Just as the Bat coverage was one film per episode this will follow that same format. Two years ago I got the Ultimate Collector’s 14 Disc Set of the Superman Films. This thing is amazing.  We will be covering the franchise in theatrical release date format so it will be as follows:

Episode 51: The DC Spotlight Volume 2: Superman Airdate: 6/26/2010

Episode 52: The DC Spotlight Volume 2: Superman II Airdate: 7/3/2010

Episode 53: The DC Spotlight Volume 2: Superman III Airdate: 7/10/2010

Celebrating MWIRE’s 1 year anniversary Mike & Steve talk about the computer scandal of Superman III.

Episode 54: The DC Spotlight Volume 2: Supergirl Airdate: 7/17/2010

Episode 55: The DC Spotlight Volume 2: Superman IV Airdate: 7/24/2010

Episode 56: The DC Spotlight Volume 2: Superman Returns Airdate: 7/31/2010

Superman: The Movie-

Hosts: TFG1Mike and Steve/Megatron

Guest Host: Steve Saylor (tentative)

There are really only two scenes in this that I remember watching as a kid. The scene in the pool with the Kruptonite and the helicopter scene. I’m not even sure at what age I first saw this. Obviously I was born after it was initially released.

Superman II: Lester Vs Donner-

Hosts: TFG1Mike and Steve/Megatron

Guest Host: Steve Saylor (tentative)

I honestly don’t ever remember watching this as a kid. I did watch both the Original Lester Cut and the Donner Cut back to back when I got the 14 Disc set and wow there’s barely any difference. At least to me. I’m sure I’m going to have to retract that statement when I go back and watch them for the episode of the podcast. However when I watched them after getting the DVD set I was like ok why the fuck am I watching the exact same film twice?

Superman III: The Office Space Orginal Idea-

Hosts: TFG1Mike and Steve/Megatron

Guest Host: David Denis or Mike Dodd (tentative)

The one thing I always remembered about the Superman Films was the fact that in one of them he fought himself. When I went back and watched this I’m glad I was secure in the knowledge that I was right. While I understand you can’t always make Lex Luthor the villain of the movie they really had to go the way they did with this one? Well I won’t say too much more as I want to save my thoughts for the eventual podcast episode.

Supergirl-

Hosts: TFG1Mike and Steve/Megatron

Guest Host: ___________ (tentative)

I’ve not seen this in a very long time. However I have very fond memories of it. I know people are going to read that statement and be like what are you smoking Mike? For some strange reason as a kid I thought that this was a big improvement over Superman III, and Helen Slater was hot!!

Superman IV: The Quest For Peace-

Hosts: TFG1Mike and Steve/Megatron

Guest Host: _________ (tentative)

Now I’m really gonna freak you out reader. There was one of those movie novelization books that sometimes come out to coincide with movie releases. I’m not talking a comic book, but a real book. The freaky part you ask? Well I could have sworn again that I had the book for this film and I always read it while listening to Madonna’s The Immaculate Collection CD. Have I blown your mind yet? Yes thanks to KnightWing of the Earth-2.net forums for finding it.

Superman: Returns-

Hosts: TFG1Mike and Steve/Megatron

Guest Host: _________ (tentative)

Oh fuck people always say Superman III or IV are the worst films in the franchise, but damn this one was horrid. Yes I know I’m tipping my hand a little but just…. DAMN!! Why the fuck must you not make your own Superman Film Bryan Singer? Take Donner’s Dick outta your mouth and do an original story you fucktard.

So there ya have it come join us on MWIRE as we delve into the last son of krypton’s movies!! BIG THANKS TO MICHAEL WILSON FOR EDITING THE TITLE SCREEN SUPERMAN IMAGES!! ALSO TO STEVE/MEGATRON FOR THE SUPERGIRL IMAGE!
