The Man of Steel

Just saw Superman Returns. For some reason, it has never really occurred to me that there are striking, nay obvious and heavy-handed, parallels between the Man of Steel and the Son of Man. This movie spares no effort to point them out. (Of course, there are also obvious Nietzschean overtones as well.) But the movie's not bad; it's quite good. Excellent, even. Go see it at the theater so that it will do enough box office to merit a sequel.
