    What is it with Superman villains and crooked real-estate schemes?

  3. Wow, I randomly skipped about 11 minutes in to find kid Superman (I assume) break-dancing to BEAT IT!  Wasn’t expecting that.

    I would love to subtitle this for you guys. Any suggestions on how to do that?

  6. Interesting! Dharmendra and Ashok Kumar, playing Jor-El and Superman’s Earthly foster-father, respectively, are actually bona fide Bollywood superstars.

    Puneet Issar, who plays Superman himself, was a very vehement Duryodhana in Ravi &B.R. Chopra’s 1980′s Mahabharata TV series. He also starred in many of  the Ramsay brothers’ (Indian Hammer equivalent, only slightly more B) horror movies. AND he’s famous as the guy who very nearly killed superstar Amitab Bachchan during the shooting of COOLIE (1983). I can think of so many reasons to watch this and so few to wait.
