Now which Superman 2 do you prefer? I was really disappointed in the Donner cut. I can see why the studio got a new director. There wasn't any action or even Superman until like 45 minutes into it if I'm remembering correctly. And the Eiffel Tower sequence was gone. I'll stick to the original that I remember and love from my childhood.

As a completed film, I prefer the non-Donner cut. But I find the Donner cut more interesting, and I would've liked to see how it would have ended up if Donner had directed the entire film and been able to film all of it (as opposed to recreating the cut using test shots).

The only problem I have with collections like this is if you dislike any of the movies, even just one, the set is pointless to get. I LOATHE Superman IV, and only kinda liked the Routh Superman...however, I loved the first three films...three out of five means no set for me!
