Countdown to the Man of Steel: Superman [1978]

An alien orphan is sent from his dying planet to Earth, where he grows up to become his adoptive home's first and greatest super-hero.  

Growing up I began my Superman journey with this little unknown film, that snuck up on me like from another planet. I share with you a "Desktop" that I think will give you all a sense of how one man can make a difference. I was forever changed by a man who could fly, bringing forth a symbol of hope...

  1. That is an awe inspiring revelation Jeremy. But it is true that one man can change the world. Think back to 1939, wait maybe you can't think back that far, a fairly unknown scientist wrote the president that uranium could be purified for a bomb. The scientist was Einstein and it was the birth of nuclear weapons.

    One man can change the world to make it a better place or a worse one.

  2. There's always that pivotal moment, in a movie or otherwise, for all of us.
    Ten more days, my friend.

  3. for a second I thought it was your own biography, Jeremy :) I mean you're alien, you can fly.... I'm only not sure you look that good in blue tights :)

  4. He's always been too popular for me!

  5. I just saw Star Trek today and they had the trailer for the new Superman. Same actor playing Superman, played Duke Of Suffolk in the Tudors. Two juicy roles. Looks pretty good.

    Star Trek was awesome!!

  6. I loved the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve, but when he played other parts after that...all I saw was Superman. He was a hero though, and went on to prove so in his personal life after his accident. Talk about a fighter for a cause!
