The first moment of every individual is priceless. So whether it is the first baby step, first day to school, first friend, first pocket money, first romantic date or enjoying the first movie.
Though I may have watched countless Hollywood movies, I still cherish the memory of watching Christopher Reeve starrer – Superman , the first hollywood movie of my childhood. It was the era when multiplexes and Blue ray discs didn’t exist and people relied on video cassettes to enjoy movies at home. My Dad used to bring lot of video cassettes during summer vacations and I really enjoyed watching it. Superman introduced me to world of hollywood and as a kid I idolized Superman as a role model who saved human race from every evil force. This brilliant movie had a fantastic star cast which included Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Christopher Reeve and legendary Marlon Brando. Especially, I was amazed by the explosive and fast paced climax when Superman (Christopher Reeves) succeeds in saving the world from a hazardous missile launched by Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman), the deadly adversary of Superman. Truly fabulous, visually engaging and thoroughly enjoyable, Superman – movie won the hearts of millions of several viewers and I was one of them. Though I saw several hollywood movies, but watching Superman was truly mesmerizing. As the movie ended, my interest for movies started and it grew with my age and inspiring me to explore the works of genius motion picture makers like Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Gillian Armstrong, Ridley Scott, Sylvester Stallone, Francis Ford Coppolla and Michael Bay. Though Christopher Reeve the lead actor who immortalized ‘Superman’ is no more, he will be always loved and would stay in the hearts of the movie buffs.
