THE GOAL FOR 2018: 200 MOVIES WATCHED BY MIDNIGHT NEW YEAR'S EVE!  (AFTER TOPPING OUT AT 194 in 2017)

CAN HE DO IT?

​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES (2016)









 #5 on the '16 movie countdown is the documentary about a movie that was never made - 2015's "The Death of Superman Lives - What Happened?" Writer-director Jon Schnepp does an astonishing job of collecting interviews as well as test footage for the aborted "Superman Lives" film which would have starred Nicolas Cage as the Man of Steel and Tim Burton would have directed. Schnepp interviews everyone, including every big name involved (except Ca...ge, who is represented in press junket interviews and that test footage), about where this movie was going and why Warner Brothers pulled the plug after a whole lot of money was spent. His detail is incredible - every storyboard, model, costume, individual, etc. involved in this film is on the screen. You will not find anything more in-depth about "Superman Lives." Fascinating. If this were made, I suspect, based on what this doc depicts, this would been Superman meets Mars Attacks, which makes me relieved it wasn't made. Recommended.
