Under Lester’s aegis, "Superman III" loses its identity, never emerging as a true superhero adventure or a full-blown parody.
Although one could argue that the movie is loosely about memory and time, that would be ascribing order to a random series of stream-of-consciousness philosophical ramblings.
Although "Terms of Endearment" may be a passable way to spend a couple of hours, to label it as the Best Picture of 1983 (or any year) is a miscarriage.
Whatever goodwill the movie builds up during its first 85 minutes is thrown away in the idiotic, anticlimactic final ten.
