superman II (richard Donnar version)

I have a question, why in the hell was Richard Donner replaced as director for superman II? I just watched his version and it is far superior to what was released.

i think he had major disagreements with salinger or whoever over the screenplay.. they wanted to change donner's version drastically.. donner quit and the result was superman 2 and 3..

Superman III's casting director must have went on a tequila binge before doing his job. "Richard Pryor in a Superman movie, now that'll work! Oh, and we can make him a computer programmer. That'll really go over well."

Uncool.

Knowing what we do now, it was amazing Superman II was as entertaining as it was - even as a kid, I still felt something was wrong, somehow.

Sorry but that wasn't the worst part of it...the super computer itself was worse...I mean seriously...superman getting beaten...by a f*cking computer...getting his ass kicked...by a computer...that was the worst of it

That computer was originally supposed to be Brainiac. Instead it became a pale imitation, just as Robert Vaughn's character was just a wink-wink-nudge-nudge stand in for Lex Luthor.

I actually didn't find Richard Pryor a distraction in this. I was a kid at the time, so maybe I was more forgiving.

when i was a kid watching superman 3, i didn't know about other superman villains.. so seeing him fight a different villain- albeit it was lex luthor in a different incarnation- was something new to me.. and superman getting drunk in a bar and just making a mess out of it was pure enjoyment to me.. if it was me with all those powers, i'd be like that too.. it must take a considerable amount of discipline and control to always be a boy scout with super powers..

plus, gus gorman was funny.. they even imitated his crime in office space.. hehe..

I loved the hightec computer screen when they were trying to shoot down superman on his way to the base.
LOL

I always thought he did that on purpose so he could reveal his love for Lois, and he could get some smooching.

I do remember reading somewhere that it was an imitation of Brainiac...I saw no resemblance whatsoever a part from the fact it tried to kill supes
