Growing up, I was into Spider-man and Batman and those are the action figures (along with their villains) that I would get for Christmas. Superman was never really my thing.

Nonetheless, I was pretty excited when the movie Superman was released in 1978. I went with some friends on my 13th birthday, and it was awesome. In fact, I'd call that the birth of my movie-going experience.

By that, I mean that that, for me, is what going to the movies should be all about. It was amazing. The best part is that the 1978 Superman is still a very good movie.

I'm not saying the new one, Man of Steel, will be as good.  But it sure looks good. \
