    Airplane II: The Sequel

    ★★★½

    The Blu-ray came in a movie 2-pack, along with the original Airplane! I can't remember the last time I watched this movie, but I haven't seen this one as often as the original. Many of the jokes are recycled from the first movie (and are easy to pick up if you watch both movies back-to-back). The delightful Leslie Nielsen is, sadly, only shown briefly in a flashback.

    Was it necessary to set this movie in space? I guess some film…

    This movie disappeared from CBS All Access, so I picked up the Blu-ray. Yes, I know I watched it just a few months ago, but I had to check out the disc, right? I may have not allowed enough time for me to "forget" the gags, but they're still fun. The film has aged, dated references and all, but I've seen it so many times that I don't notice them much. You might, though.

    There's a lot of material to cover here, and the UE does it... um... justice. Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are major characters. Pitting just one of them against Lex Luthor is enough…

    The more I watch this movie, the more I like it. I've always enjoyed Superman and the many ways that his story has been retold over the decades. I remember Christopher Reeve's Superman with much fondness, but this movie is different.

    Here, Kal-El/Clark Kent really struggles to find his identity. Not that he didn't struggle in previous incarnations, but this time around there was a greater emphasis on his struggle. He's an alien sent to Earth, has these strange abilities,…
