Man of Steel: At Least There Wasn't A Giant Mountain of Kryptonite This Time

Warner Bros. takes their copyrights pretty seriously, so here's this  watermarked image of a different man of steel.

So they rebooted Superman. We all knew it was going to happen and, given the success of the current Marvel franchises, we all knew it was going to be a litmus test to see if the DC Universe could sustain the same type of interconnected storyline(s). I originally wasn't going to write this post, but an ongoing argument over the quality of the film with Mrs. AR, and seeing @Hokuboku live tweet the first Donner movie rekindled my desire to talk about the film and, truth be told, I really need to vent.

*WARNING* This entry is full of spoilers for the film. After the jump you will see plot point after plot point being written about in a very snarky and pissy manner. Anyone that complains about spoiling the movie gets a box of angry bees sent to their house.

Dear Adam Gabriel Christian

I very, very rarely cross the streams between the real me and the corporate me. Who wants to risk total protonic reversal? However, as the big day is getting closer and closer I'm compelled to share this with everyone else. Below you'll find a blog I originally wrote on my corporate intranet blog. It's about my little sister and the tiny human currently feeding itself off of her body. Special shout out to my nieces out West. I love both of you immensely. Sorry I'm so far away.

Incredibly Difficult Task

There's a disturbing trend popping up on Facebook that I simply cannot fathom. It is baffling how many different times I've seen this posted on my News Feed. What, I ask you, the entire fuck? Is this a difficult thing for people? Are there men and women out there that have to sit and think about this? To prove how ridiculously easy this is I'm going to sit here and rattle off five movies without an S in the title from a random sampling of genres. You'll have to trust that I'm doing this improv style, but those that know me well know how I am about movies and recalling them.
