And we all thank you in advance for that.

Is there any hope for WB to release the first four superman movies as a 4 disc set like how the batman and the lethal weapon movies are?

Aldo Raine: Yeah, they made that deal, but they don't give a *frick* about him. They need you.
Hans Landa: You'll be shot for this!
Aldo Raine: Nah, I don't think so. More like chewed out. I've been chewed out before.

MoS?

Totally agree. I have been saying that since i saw it in the IMAX theater and then at home in 3D. I gave that film the best treatment possible, but it is just a pile of garbage. I recently re-watched Superman Returns after a long break and after seeing MOS, Superman Returns was much more enjoyable to me. At least that film offered a decent story and paid some homage to the 1980's movies. Man of Steel just came off like it was the greatest film ever when in reality it makes Superman IV look like a classic.
You got a good reputation. But if I was you, I'd have located in the next county.

It certainly has some problems but you're way in the minority on that one. Superman Returns was a pile of garbage. As off as Pa Kent was in MoS, having Suoercreep listen in on Lois near the end was inexcusable. Not to mention there wasn't a lunch thrown by him in the entire film. And yeah, Nuclear Man.... Right!

He's really not in the minority. I also like that quite a bit. Critics did, too - it was one of the best reviewed movies of that year. I think it was like the 13th highest reviewed major release or something to that effect. It's not the disaster that people claim it is. It didn't light the world on fire, but it wasn't universally hated. It also didn't lose anyone any money - it just didn't really make anyone any money, either.

And I can't believe people are still on about him overhearing Lois and Richard's conversation, ha I've said it before and I'll say it again - for a person to believe you're supposed to take away from that scene that Superman is a creepy weirdo, you have to willfully ignore the fact that the rest of the movie is so amazingly earnest, almost to the point of being uncomfortable. That movie doesn't have a cynical bone in its body.

People also don't seem to care that that wasn't even the first time he listened in on people in that movie at that point. He listens in on Lois and Richard in the Daily Planet and also to essentially the entire east coast at one point.

It appears that your concept of "minority" may be a bit off the mark on this one. Count me as part of said growing minority.

MOS was definitely a POS. Superman Returns, aside from that 1 eavesdropping scene, has 1000x more Superman greatness in it than MOS does... even though Superman throws a bunch of punches in MOS.

That's what gets me most about the MOS popularity. Everyone says it's so amazing because Superman is wildly violent in it. To me, the best thing about Superman is his ability to not have to use such violence as his first/only resort.

I broke down today, though.

I saw a mint-condition copy of this Superman Motion Picture Anthology Blu-ray set for $40 at a used store earlier today when I was on the way home from visiting family for Easter. I pulled the trigger on the set for that price.

In all fairness, the only reason why I held off on buying this set was because I do not care for Superman Returns. I'm sucking it up, though, because I love both versions of Superman: The Movie, I really want the theatrical cut of Superman II, and, in all honesty, the 1980s kid in me is occasionally nostalgic for Superman III and Superman IV.

I had been hoping for individual editions of these movies in the wake of the Man of Steel movie release, but, since that did not happen, I'm not holding my breath for those releases. Now that I have the box set, though, individual releases will probably be announced tomorrow.

I'm going to enjoy going through these over a rainy weekend in the near future.

The first four Superman movies are all in good fun. I was underwhelmed by Superman Returns when I saw it in the theater years ago, but I'll simply regard it as a "fan fiction" story.

I've been on the fence buying this set as well for pretty much the same reasons you stated in your post, I had hoped their would be individual releases for each of the films. I don't really care for Superman Returns, although I consider it now to be vastly superior to Man of Steel for a plethora of reasons, but still not something I would really watch. Superman III and IV while not great films, bordering somewhere between awful and good are rewatchable mainly for nostalgic reasoning, though again not as often as the first two films.

Man of Steel will likely never be part of my collection, and I was surprised to hear that they were making a sequel considering it made slightly better then it's budget back theatrically here in the US. Discussions regarding the film and it's characterization of the beloved icon have been rather heated and often unpleasant, with two distinct camps; those who love the new film, and those that despise it with every bone in their bodies. Although there are a few middle-grounders who thought the film was ok, they seem to number far fewer and appear to be much less vocal on the film.
