I’m just fudging it

I may be a cheeseball, but I truly believe this is a lightning in a bottle, once in a lifetime movie. Everything is presented with such sincerity and innocence; the performances, the score, the special effects... They all fit together to create a sense of wonder and warmth that I have never experienced in a film before. It’s not perfect but it is timeless, and the sweetness of it also makes me very sad. There has never been and never will be anything quite like the magic of Superman.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
In the climax of this very tense, serious thriller film, Robert De Niro turns into Jason Voorhees and starts speaking in tongues. More like Cape Farce, am I right? To be fair, I enjoyed this thoroughly, even the unintentionally comical moments. But it was disappointing that all the buildup was in service of such a trashy ending, and between the camerawork and editing this movie looked about on par with made-for-TV junk. Marty, what happened? How did you go directly from Goodfellas to this?
