This movie is one of my daughter's faves of all time. She was a tiny tot and would watch this over and over and over. Now she is 28 years old and cherishes it with her early memories!!

"....it was good for Warner Bros. to finally release Supergirl under its own label, after being previously released by Anchor Bay. Interesting, seeing as WB abandoned the film as a whole during its 1984 theatrical release.
The film is virtually the same transfer of the international version as used on the Anchor Bay release, along with the commentary track by Bosco and Szwarc. (Interestingly, WB uses the famed John Williams Superman theme on the menu screens, despite the theme not being used in the film.)
The film was one of the most underappreciated entries of 1984, but is really worth watching, and only in the famed "international version", and not in the heavily butchered theatrical version, which will hopefully never see the light of day on DVD ever. The film focuses heavily on fantasy aspects, with most of the Sci-fi aspects that made the whole Superman franchise.
All in all, this DVD as a whole allows WB to make amends for giving up on this film before it ever got out of the gate. Hopefully, WB can go in when we see the next round of DVD tie-ins in 09 when the next Superman movie comes out, and revisit this film and even give us the "Director's Cut" with a more wider release than the utterly expensive and limited edition that Anchor Bay gave us."
Dunaway eats it up!

"This is Dunaway in one of her best performances, really. People doubt her ability to do comedy, but this shows she can do it quite well. Faye Dunaway as the Evil Selena who "will settle for nothing less than world domination." It doesn't get any better than that! Sure, the plot and movie make little sense, but I don't think they were supposed to. Dunaway is funny as heck, I just love watching this movie. She looks good, too. I have a Selena trading card autographed by Miss Dunaway herself. It's one of my most prized possessions! It's fun, it doesn't make a lot of sense, it's really funny, and Dunaway is in a ton of scenes. What more do you want?"
Hail Helen Slater as Supergirl!

"I really did enjoy this movie even though like many have said there are holes in it! Slater is beautiful and brilliant in this movie! She could truly bring a great sense of determination and innocent curiousity of her surroundings as Supergirl! I wished though the story could have been done better because she probably would have made more sequels, and be typecast forever as Supergirl! Well, what am I saying she already is! Even though the characters could have been created a lot more better(Dunaway as a true example), you can't help but enjoy them, and be entertained!"
