Not So Superman?

Jeffrey Overstreet has made a list of top 10 things to think about when you find your mind wondering during Superman Returns:

1. Count just how many actresses would have brought more personality and intelligence to the role of Lois Lane than Kate Bosworth. Let's see... Evangeline Lily, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Scarlet Johansson, Sarah Polley, Romola Garai, or hey... Parker Posey!
4. Start guessing the many and varied headlines for articles in which Christian film critics hyperventilate with joy over the fact that they've noticed that Superman is a Christ-figure. It's just so much better when movies come loudly broadcasting an obvious parallel with the gospel. That way we don't have to do any thinking or interpreting for ourselves...
7. Try to remember when Pirates of the Caribbean 2 is opening.
9. Count this film's phallic symbols. My goodness.
