- The first installment of the Kirk Alyn-starring Superman serial
- The first episodes of the George Reeves Superman TV show - aka: The Adventures of Superman (also known as Superman and the Mole Men)
- An episode of the 80's Superman cartoon
- An episode of Lois and Clark
- The pilot movie for Superman: The Animated Series
- Superman: The Movie
- Superman II
- Superman III
- Superman IV (yes. Superman IV)
- Superman Returns
Frankly, and this may surprise some, I own quite a bit of Superman media. I haven't run the numbers, but I figure if I added up all the cartoons, movies, live TV shows, etc... I've got on hand, we could go for about a straight month without pausing (not really, but we could last for a few days). So, you know, I'm trying to be merciful.
Anyway, I plan to watch all the stuff in the list, sleep, and then go see the new Superman.
Its Not Easy Getting Green
But prior to this, we have the Green Lantern movie coming up. And so I am considering a Green Lantern-mini-marathon
- the Superman: The Animated Series Green Lantern episode introducing Green Lanterns and Sinestro
- an episode of Superfriends retelling the Green Lantern origin
- key Green Lantern-centric episodes of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited
- Green Lantern: First Flight from Warner Animation
- Green Lantern: Emerald Knights from Warner Animation
- I will also try to secure a copy of the little-seen Justice League live action pilot featuring a dopey Guy Gardner/ Kyle Rayner hybrid
So, coming soon (once I clear this with Jamie), I will put out a schedule and the drill will be that you can come by and join me in the marathon if you're here in town, coming and going as you see fit.
I will also be looking into a possible Ape-a-Thon prior to the release of this year's Planet of the Apes sequel. I now have 10 hours of Apes movies on Blu-Ray, and its hard to see me NOT watching all of the Apes movies back-to-back in a 10 hour stretch of pure primate-madness.
But I am also considering a 2-part Apes-a-Thon.
Part 1: All five original Planet of the Apes movies and the cartoon, if I can secure it.
Part 2: APE FESTAPALOOZA: an appreciation of primates in movies
This is actually a preliminary list
- Any Which Way But Loose
- King Kong (the original and/ or the 1970's version)
- Might Joe Young
- Gorillas in the Mist
- Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan
If you want to participate in any part of the Marathons, let me know!
