The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Superman III Turns 35!

Today marks 35 years since one of the most baffling entries in Superman’s cinematic canon. Yes, Superman III -- teaming up Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel with comedian Richard Pryor -- first hit screens on this day in 1983, and while it hasn’t aged particularly well, we thought it would be fun to take a look back in befuddlement at this bodyblow to the Reeve Superman series (which would be finished off for good four years later) and ask what the heck they were thinking. As it happens, this was Zaki’s very first moviegoing experience, and Brian watched it for the very first time in preparation for this track, making for what we hope will be a fascinating discussion of this fascinating trainwreck. You can hear it through the link below or at iTunes or Stitcher or Google Play. As always, please make sure to hit “like” on our Facebook page, and send any questions or comments to MovieFilmPodcast@gmail.com.
