Christopher Reeve, Dead at 52

Christopher Reeve, aka Superman, died last night of heart failure at 52.

As corny as the Superman movies were, I grew up with them. How many little boys inside full grown men are crying today for their fallen hero? Mine is.

I actually think his best movie was Somewhere in Time, though I know a lot of people would violently disagree with that. (Also, I haven't seen everything he was in, so that's not really a fair assessment.)

Remember when SuperMan died in the comic books in the early 90's? I bet those black arm bands make at least a minor comeback. (I also hope they remember to leave him out in the sun...)

RE: Christopher Reeve, Dead at 52

"Somewhere in Time" was his best movie. Although I wasn't a big fan of the "Superman" movies (my favorite scene was Valerie Perrine in the swimming pool) you have to respect the man's courage and everything he did after his accident. Because of my years of involvement with offroad motorcycling I know a number of people who have suffered debilitating spinal cord injuries, and their cause has lost a great champion today.

The first two Superman movies were awesome. Still watch them regularly
on DVD. Can't get enough of Zod.

Wow -- a penny for your thoughts there. ;) Superman II and then Death
Trap. I also thought Reeve was pretty cool for making cameos in Smallville.
