I've expunged all but the '78 film from memory.

Superman III was more of a Richard Pryor movie. At least IV had it's heart in the right place and tried to get back to the magic of the franchise.
Agreed. And poor old IV had a budget that wouldn't cover Michael Bay's daily coke intake.

Judging by how hopped up Bay's movies always are, that might not be as small a budget as you'd think

The junkyard fight was good, but it made me laugh both Clark Kent and evil Superman thought any of the things they used to hurt each other actually would. The only thing would be Kryptonite, but even then that is harmful to both of them.
I always got the impression that the fight was a representation of the psychological Superman was having, and not that he was actually split in two and was duking it out with himself.

Doesn't mean IV didn't suck, which it did.

I was 15 when Superman IV came out and remember being very disappointed with it. I can't imagine what my reaction to it would be like now, but I'm guessing it hasn't aged like a fine wine.

One day, I will go into the UN, boastfully claim that I'll get rid of all the nukes in all the nations of the world, and I will be applauded for it with no one questioning my decision!

I'd like to also see you fly all the nukes in the world in a giant net and hurl them into the sun like you're an Olympic Hammer Thrower.

there is a cut scene that explains that:

British diplomat: We have to stop him!

American diplomat: Are you out of your fucking mind? He's got rid of all the nukes and could wipe us all out in seconds. Just shut the fuck up, smile and clap like the rest of us and hope King Superman the first lets us live.

You have to wonder where one would get such a net.

But the place was still smashed up after the fight was done, and it wouldn't be beyond the power of Red K to actually split him in two.
