Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut

One year after I wrote how great it would be to see Superman II as it was orginally intended, it is here. (Review to follow.)

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut

UPDATE: The movie is way less campy and much more like the first movie. The added scenes with Marlon Brando add a lot to the film both because of his acting and because of the father-becomes-the-son / son-becomes-the-father religious symbolism stuff. There are also a several other new scenes and plenty of scenes that were removed.

I will also enjoy the Donner/Lester version of Superman II because I saw it when I was a kid and memorized dialog and watched it dozens of times. But this new Donner version is the better movie, by far.
