Superman II turned 40 this week and still carries the rare distinction of a sequel that actually lives up to its predecessor. I’d be lying if I said I enjoyed the follow-up more than Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman: The Movie, which is essentially a perfect film in my opinion.

Of course, it’s a small wonder Superman II even works at all considering the wel...
