Revealing mistake: Look carefully at the train when Superman is using himself to hold up the track during the earthquake. It's obvious the wheels of the train are not even touching the track as they pass over him.

Continuity mistake: After Superman gets soaked in Lex's pool he also gets his hair wet and messy, but when he flies up his hair is dry and combed and his clothes are dry.

Deliberate mistake: At Lois' penthouse, before Superman says goodbye, the image is sharp and clear. Cuts to a close-up, and then check the next wide angle where he says goodnight and flies away: It's blurry and grainy because it's not live, but a screen with a previously shot scene to allow for the camera to turn left and, in a matter of seconds, no cuts at all, show Superman magically and quickly transformed into Clark Kent.

Perry White: I want the name of this flying whatchamacallit to go with the Daily Planet like bacon and eggs, franks and beans, death and taxes, politics and corruption.

Question: Why didn't Superman spin the world (and time) backwards enough to prevent the nuke from exploding in the first place? Wouldn't that have saved a lot more lives?

briggs

Answer: Just to clarify: Superman didn't spin the Earth backwards. We just see the world turning backwards when he went back in time. Of course this doesn't answer your question and it shows how difficult it is to write a good time travel story that doesn't leave the audience thinking of better ways to solve problems.

I guess the way they wrote it, Superman got to be the hero and also get the girl, not really too bad of an outcome.

briggs

Answer: Well yes. This is actually a perfect thing to submit for a Stupidity. Cause it's just bad writing all around.
