July 24th, 1987 - I was an 8-year old kid, eagerly awaiting to watch the 4th Superman movie. After I left the theater, I said.. "What happened?!? That movie was so bad!" It was 30-years ago today that "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" was released. It was both a critical & commercial failure; with many reviewers criticizing the cheap special effects, inconsistencies, lack of originality, and plot holes. It's one of the worst films ever made. "The Quest for Peace" fared the worst at the box office compared to the other 3 Superman films, and the series went dormant for the following 19-years. Christopher Reeve regretted his decision to be involved in the film by saying.. "Superman IV was a catastrophe from start to finish. That failure was a huge blow to my career." Jon Cryer, who played Lex Luthor's nephew (Lenny), said that Christopher Reeve had taken him aside just before the release and told him that the movie was going to be "terrible". It's one of those films that is so bad.., it's laughable! I was 8-years old, and I was complaining on how the character (Lacy Warfield) didn't burn up in the atmosphere when Nuclear Man kidnapped her and flew her away from Earth, and how she was breathing quite comfortably in outer space.
