Another bonus episode, this time covering 1983's superlative Superman III! Joined by 2 superb guests, Jack Graham and Daniel Harper, we talk about this sublime early 80's summer blockbuster superhero movie. Among cackling glee and unrestrained joy, listen out for:
- My fawning adulation for Christopher Reeve
- The nightmares! The nightmares!
- Helpless laughter
- The 4th Doctor connection (Daniel's excellent theory)
- How this movie fits with the Zack Snyder Superman films
- The brilliance of Richard Pryor
- Why Superman is such an appealing power fantasy
- The obsession of 80's cinema with the 50's
And much, much more.
