Superman III (1983):  I like this Superman film quite a bit.  It's a nice change of pace from the first two films.  There is no Lex Luthor, and we hardly see Lois Lane or any of the characters from the Daily Planet.  Clark Kent is in Smallville and meets up with old girlfriend Lana Lang (delightfully played by Annette O'Toole).  Richard Pryor is the other major player in this movie who isn't completely a good guy or a bad guy.  His talents with computers, however, gain the attention of an evil crimelord played by Robert Vaughan.  Pryor's character invents a computer that darn near kills Superman.  Plus, we're introduced to a different kind of Kryptonite that makes Superman apathetic.

    The one thing I don't like in this movie is the overly long "Good Superman vs. Bad Superman" sequence.  They really stretched this out to get their money's worth out of special effects and it makes absolutely no sense.  Why are there two Supermans exactly?  Huh?  But once you get that business out of the way, the cast is great, the story is great, and the film moves along pretty good.  They also tried to play out the Richard Pryor drunk scenes, which is funny to a point, but shortly wears off.  Overall, this is an interesting Superman movie and I recommend it.
