    The Greatest Night in Pop

    ★★

    The Greatest Night in Pop is a documentary about the creation of the We Are the World charity song from 1985. Much is delivered via participants reflecting on the experience, with Lionel Richie being the main speaker. Richie wrote the song with Michael Jackson, and then the duo handed the tune off to Quincy Jones to produce the recording of the song.

    It's hard to talk about this movie without first acknowledging the reviews -- the majority of which declare this to be an awful movie, somewhere between worst movie ever and worst recent superhero film. And so I'll start by saying they're all wrong.

    I loved the movie, but I knew I would. Superman is my favorite hero, and I've loved him whether it was George Reeves or Christopher Reeve or even, yes, Brandon Routh. (For the record, Henry Cavill is…
