Yeah yeah, its HD DVD but it's Superman and it's a tasty price and some of us still like HD DVD (as we have HD DVD players)

Richard Donner's 1978 epic about the Man of Steel showed how a film about a superhero could be a moving and romantic experience even for people who long ago gave up comic books. Beginning on the icy planet Krypton, the story follows the baby Kal-El, whose rocket ship lands in Smallville, Kansas. He is found there by a childless couple and raised as the shy Clark Kent (the young Kent is played by Jeff East). The film is perhaps most touching in these sequences, with expanses of wheat fields blowing in the wind and with a young man who can't figure out what part in destiny his great powers are meant to play. The second half, with Reeve taking over as Clark/Superman, is bustling, enchanting (the scene in which Superman flies girlfriend Lois Lane--played by Margot Kidder--through the night sky is great date material), and funny, thanks largely to Gene Hackman's sardonic portrayal of nemesis Lex Luthor. --Tom Keogh
Synopsis
Born on planet Krypton but raised in Kansas, USA, Clark Kent (as his Earth parents have named him) embarks on a voyage of self-discovery to the Arctic, where he learns the truth about his alien origins, superhuman abilities, and responsibility to preserve and protect 'truth, justice and the American Way'. As an adult, Superman (Christopher Reeve) adjusts to life in the big city, posing as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent. However, he soon discovers that whether he's flirting with hard-nosed Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) or battling super-villain Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman), hiding his superpowers isn't easy. The film's all-star cast includes Jackie Cooper, Marlon Brando, Ned Beatty, Glenn Ford, Terence Stamp, and Valerie Perrine, among others, all camping it up wonderfully.

Or not.

If all HD DVDs were this price, it might have won the battle against blu-ray. Too late now.

Thanks - didnt have unforgiven in my collection... - rep left

Also was inspired to go to CEX and check for HD's and ended up buying TMNT for £1.50 and Tokyo Drift for £2.00. So worth checking there for people who are looking to expand their collection on the cheap (albeit with 2nd hand DVD's..)
