Everything Wrong With Superman 3 in 19 Minutes or Less

Film & Animation

Superman III is just not good. I'm sorry. The first two are great. This one is just not great. I'm sorry if you are only just now finding out. Oh, and it has sins, too.
Next week: Comedy aughts sins and sci-fi aughts sins.
Remember, no movie is without sin. Which movie's sins should we count next?

    I haven't watch this movie in forever... Superman is turning into Doctor Strange with the gray hair.😂😂 The movie has Richard Pryor. There is no way it wouldn't turn into a comedy (a horrible one at it).

    7:23-When Superman stops that tractor, he gives the guy a real dirty look-like hes thinking “you should have seen this kid laying here in all this tall wheat! Shame on you!” You should have SINNED THE SHIT OUTTA THAT SCENE!

    #18. Really?! You’re seriously sinning the movie for complaining about minutiae that nobody else cares about? Didn’t you just assess a sin for a fake number on an irrelevant prop matchbook that appeared onscreen for a second in a movie from 1983??

  • J. P.
    J. P.22 days ago

    #14. No, I don’t remember, because it was the f’ing early 80’s. Do you actually remember it, it have you since read about it?

    #2 Back in the 80’s there was no Internet, they didn’t have movie geeks poring over every frame of every movie and complaining about the mistakes. Why would they go out of their way on a throw away prop to make it a real phone number that people can call? At that point in time, it would have taken much more time to create than would have been worth.

    I was very young and naive, when I first saw this movie, so naturally, because it was a Superman movie I thought it was great. But, when I saw it again, many years later, realized just how wrong I was. This film is both awful and ridiculous!

  • Christopher T
    Christopher TMonth ago

    This is by far my favorite and the most re-watchable movie of all the original Superman movies! I'm sorry, but all the craziness in this movie and Richard Pryor's goofiness is no match for the s*** that is the other original Superman movies. Superman turning back time, pulling his s off his chest and turning into some sort of net... The absolutely horrible Lois Lane performance of Margot kidder, lois lanes iner monologue poetry, and gene Hackman's awful and over the top performance of lex luthor! give me Richard Pryor and Superman fighting some crazy machine any day! Cheers.

    Annie Ross (Vera) was an accomplished jazz singer (her song "Twisted" was covered by Joni Mitchell) & had been involved with Lenny Bruce, someone who was heavily influential on Richard Pryor as a comedian...but I doubt they discussed any of that on the set.

  • muziktrkr

    Richard Lester was more famous for directing The Beatles in "A Hard Days Night" & "Help" - the first is pretty sinless, but "Help" definitely has sins... not sure if CinemaSins wants to take on The Beatles though! Richard Pryor 80s movies are sinful...esp. The Toy.

    One of the problems with putting Superman in a universe where there are no other superhuman people means you have to dumb down his powers to have anything going on. That's why Superman II is the best. And please don't tell me that "Superman IV has a super-guy too!" because I WILL SMACK YOU

    For you young'ns: this is the film that helped kick start the whole $20M-a-film thing. "Script? Story? Coherence? Dude the seventies are OVER! Let's just sign a huge star (or two) and start the cameras rolling! People care about STARS now, they'll pay to see Big Name Guy or Big Name Gal regardless of how stupid the film is!"

    This is actually my favourite Superman movie for several reasons. I love the scene where Clark and Superman are fighting each other. It goes so surreal. As well, it was a comic book movie that didn't take itself seriously at all. Unlike today where comic book movies are defining points in some people's lives, this was just silly for silly sake.
