Its time for another great threepeat of similarly themed crappy movies and in honor of Cap Vs Iron Man we are going to delve into some of the less talked about but maybe even worse superhero movies that have graced the silver screen and then tripped upon entrance. You'll thrill at Superman IV's ineptness! You'll gasp at the offensiveness of Supergirl! You'll wonder at the banana business that is Punisher: War Zone! Join us for this excellent showcase of flops in the worlds of DC and Marvel.
Superman takes on Lex Luthor's crappy cro-magnon clone of the Man of Steel while adding the power of the sun. So he's made of the thing that gives Supes his power on Earth? Bad design, Lex. Oh also, Superman owns a net specifically made to store nuclear missiles. Did he buy that?
Wow, this film...wow. What a train wreck. Superman IV is very easily one of the worst executed films of all time. The writing is awful, the action is awful, the acting is awful, the set design, costumes, sound, editing and even the film credits are awful. At no point in the production process did anyone stop and say, "Guys, this is not it! Start over!" Its preposterous!
So it's an awful pile of garbage....and one of the most enjoyable pieces of crap we've ever watched. It is so much damn fun. The lunacy is constant from the very beginning and never lets off until the end. It's a laugh riot from start to finish. For God's sake, please go watch this film, even if you have seen it recently. It's hilarious. It's fantastic!
Russian Cosmonaut gets hit by space junk (his head comes off), Jeremy spoke in class today, Jon Cryer's "Ooh noa", Superman's sudden telekinesis powers, the giant statue of Superman that looks terrible,
The great travesty of this film is that if they had left the deleted scenes in the final cut, we wouldn't be talking about The Room, Troll 2, and Birdemic. There would only be Superman IV at the top of heap for worst movie ever made. So if you have a copy on DVD be sure to watch them. They infinitely make the film so much worse which already seems impossible.
This is likely making the Year 3, Year in Review list for multiple hosts of Stinker Madness. Look at these star ratings! It's unbeatable. We truly loved it and had such a blast watching it. We wish every movie we watched was Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.
