The God Thing! I knew there was another Phase II era name. But I couldn't remember it. That gets my vote.

It's probably worth noting that the first Christopher Reeve "Superman" movie, which came out around the same time, went the same route: Superman: The Motion Picture.
Almost -- it was Superman: The Movie.
Oops.

Actually, does the title "Superman" actually appear on the screen? I remember a big "S" at the beginning of the flick, but . . . .

Yeah, but the title as presented in the film was just plain Superman, with no subtitle.
Yes.

It does in this one, as seen above. But it's interesting how often Superman and Batman movies and TV shows don't show the actual character name in their opening titles. The 1988 Superman animated series didn't (though announcer Bill Woodson said it multiple times), B:TAS and S:TAS didn't, and I believe the title screen for Batman Forever was just the Batman logo with "Forever" superimposed on it. I find it interesting how that suggests that the Superman and Batman logos have essentially become ideograms, like in Chinese or Egyptian -- a single symbol representing a specific word. You see "(Bat-symbol) Forever" and you know it's pronounced "Batman Forever."

Star Trek: "The Changeling" with better special effects, better music, and some padding to fill out a movie-length run-time.



eh, I think that's a bit wordy for a title.

Wow. Those Superman credits takes me back . . . to the Lewis & Clark Theater during the Christmas break of my freshmen year of college, to be exact.

Thanks for posting that!

From your reaction, I'm guessing that's the first time you've ever seen that?

But I agree, I've loved that sequence since 1978.

Star Trek: The Planet of the Titans is another one, although obviously it doesn't fit this movie.
