Superman is a jerk


"Brandon Routh, our world's next Superman, gave a few bits of choice information regarding the plot of Superman Returns:

'Superman leaves without saying a word to Lois Lane and that causes some bitterness on her part. He also confirms that there is only one villain, Lex Luthor.'

Hearing this news, I can't help but think of my father, who left my mother and I without saying a word. And how, with his heavy drinking, he too faced only one villain: alcoholism. But mostly, it reminds me of how sometimes he would dress up like Superman and talk for hours about Vietnamese women."

What's all this "my father drank" crap? I've got grievances with life, but I leave it out of my reviews.

(In other words, I substitute a myriad of smaller grievances for the big ones, but I'm entertaining, is my point.)
