Why Singerman is an "Affront to all That is Good and Decent?"

A reader sent us this link to a rant by Thom Holbrook over on PooBala.com. Overall it's a pretty good read and hits a lot of the same points that we did about the film. He also has some amusing ways to fill in some of the blanks in plot and logic with the film. One of our favorite parts of the rant reads as follows:
"Lois Lane had a child and became involved with Perry White's son. Seeing that Lois is practically engaged to Richard White, Superman does what any true heroic figure would do. He steps aside. Oh no… wait… I got that wrong. Let me go again. Seeing that Lois is practically engaged to Richard White, Superman tries to mack on her and seduce her away, only stopping when Lois tells him to back off. But THEN he backs off and goes away. Wait… no… wrong again. Sorry. After that Superman flies to Lois's house and like a super powered stalker floats outside watching their every move inside with his x-ray vision. I get the idea. Superman is outcast and alone and we pity him. Again, I don't want to pity Superman. And regardless of why he is doing it, it's creepy. Finally, I have no pity for this Superman because this is a situation all of his own making. He flew off into space for five years on an idiotic mission showing no concern for Lois Lane. Now she's involved and happy and I should pity Bag-Of-Hammers Man? I don't even like the dolt at this point."
Wow, it's as if this guy was channeling the staff here when writing this. A long review but well worth a read in our opinion.

No wonder nobody commented on this thing because it is beyond stupid. What the hell staff are you talking about, i see everything is posted by you. I imagine you are a lonely single virgin who drinks too much and has way too much time on his hands, to post crap like this.

Yeah and they are all posted by the same guy, so what we are supposed to just believe him.

believe what? No one's asking you to believe anything. Everything is linked to other sources for you.

WOW! What a great blog. I have all the same misgivings and disgust for this movie. My thoughts are on some threads on the Geoff Johns message board. They are a bit old at this point. But I am in total agreement on this film... I really didn't catch a gay vibe, but the rest, oh man, let's get a new creative team behind the purported sequel.
