| Fun and irreverent insight into movie-making
"Requiem for Krypton" is one of the best DVD making-of documentaries ever made. Film-maker Rob Burnett was there for the entire process of making Superman Returns--there is even footage from before Bryan Singer was signed for the movie. You get to see the major moments of the production, including a great bit where Brandon Routh is getting ready for his screen test, and he is the only one who doesn't know that he already has the role. Other hilarious bits include Eva Marie Saint's (Martha Kent) lecherous reaction to Routh in his body suit ("*gasp* My boy! That's nothing to sneeze at"), and Kevin Spacey riding around set in his Kryptonite-inspired Super Buster. And because Burnett was a regular presence on set, the cast and crew are completely comfortable in front of his camera, joking around with him just like he were another member of the crew. The result is a "you are there" feel that I have never experienced in any other making-of doc. If I were to meet members of the cast or crew from Superman Returns, I would have to resist the urge to behave as if they should know me, because after watching "Requiem for Krypton," they feel like old friends.

"Requiem for Krypton" can be seen on the 2-disc special edition of Superman Returns or on the 14-disc Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition.
