When I was a kid, this was the single most magical moment in any movie. I loved the idea that so much of the movie exists in a world that was very much our own, and that Metropolis was clearly the city where my Mom and Dad went to work every day, and I could recognize streets and buildings and whatever. And then, all of a sudden, this notion that under your regular work clothes could be something bright and magical, and a regular, shy, awkward dude could suddenly transform himself…well…that was pretty powerful to me as a three year old. And it kinda still is. This sequence, the helicopter rescue from Superman: The Movie, is probably my favorite five minutes in all of film, and all of superhero mythology.
