You know.... the image in the upper right looks more convincing than any million-dollar cgi effect in superman Returns.

I have to disagree. While many special effects are still very good in the Donner Superman movies some of them do look pretty dated compared to Superman Returns.

You could tweak the tones and the cut of Reeve's suit and it still works. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It's being changed simply to create buzz. I can almost hear someone saying aloud, "This new design is gonna real piss some people off." They got that right.

I like the shot. What sells it is the intensity of Reeve's face.

Routhe was never allowed to look that intense.

Was Reeve on wires for that shot?

Oh these pictures in the link are excellent! I was referring more to some scenes in the first two movies where the effects do look dated. Some of them, many more, still look great than not but with films where one of them is over 30 years old it is to be expected but they still work real real well.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

the most dated shots in the first two films are the ones where only blue screen was used, because the background city-scapes look like blurry helicopter fly-bys.

One of my favorite shots is Superman's first dart upwards to get the helicopter in the first film. Old-fashioned, with a great cut that actually adds to the momentum of the scene. It looks convincing today. More importantly, it's a fun shot, with a lot of energy.

Yes.

Throughout the movies, the wirework was really convincing.



And this one's blurry, but gorgeous, at 0:19

I'd take all the flying shots from the first two movies over Superman Returns anyday. Reeve on wires was much more convincing than the fake looking CGI Superman in Returns.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I thought beaker's post was sarcastic until I saw his username. Because slantwise flying followed by Supes obviously being lowered from above is so persuasive.

Superman catching the helicopter is my favorite scene and never grows old.

I think the shots that look poor and dated to me are in Superman II when he is flying across the ocean and then into Paris to rescue Lois.

It improves when he flies up through the Eiffel Tower to rescue Lois but right before that it looks bad to me.

And that was from 'Quest for Peace'! Even in a crappy movie, some of the wirework was good.

Personally I like the new movie suit and the way Cavill looks in it just fine.
That nails it. Looks wrong without the shorts. The added red creates a better visual balance.
Yep, it makes a big difference. Just having a belt would make it better. I love the one on the bottom right.
