ReThink Review: Man of Steel -- The Hunk From Outer Space

Jonathan Kim | Posted 08.18.2013 | Entertainment

My biggest problem with Man of Steel is one that has kept me from liking Superman my whole life -- that a superhero with godlike powers and unimpeachable morals is very difficult to relate to or empathize with.

Man of Steel delivers not just great action, fantastic special effects, warm and original dialogue, but the chance to explore our theology as told and re-told by the many who surround us in the cloud of witnesses or has holographic projections of our consciousness.

Man of Steel: Apocalyptic Eco-Justice?

There was a great take-away for people of faith and all people of good will in this movie. But I'm not talking about the intentional plot points that the filmmakers imagined might appeal to Christians. I'm more interested in why Superman left Krypton.

What Becomes Of Metropolis After 'Man Of Steel'?

Mike Ryan | Posted 08.17.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

Man of Steel opened to a triumphant box office take over the past weekend. Though there are still some questions lingering about the end of the movie. (If you haven't seen Man of Steel, this might be a good time to stop reading.) At the end of Man of Steel, Superman and Zod stage a long and very costly battle that leaves much of Metropolis in ruins. Here, to talk about what it was like in Metropolis on that day, we interviewed a resident of Metropolis, U.S.A.

Everyone ultimately wants a Superman on their side. The INS even has a citizenship category for that -- Alien of Extraordinary Ability or the O visa. The question is, does America want to legalize the not-so-supermen and women?

Although our nation remains intensely divided, we can all look up to Superman as what we can, and perhaps should be. Superman's greatness lies in his humility.

Director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is an ambitious attempt by home studio Warner Bros. to imbue their Superman property with the same sense of primacy with audiences that seems to come so easily to DC Comics stablemate Batman.

Does 'Superman' Still Hold Up?

Mike Ryan | Posted 08.13.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

In today's movies, my reaction to seeing entire cities destroyed while superheroes fight is to shrug. That doesn't seem right. I feel that I should be offended, or at least disturbed -- but I've seen it so many times now that I just don't care. We've raised the stakes so high, they've effectively lost their meaning. How much more destruction can the next villain cause that this last one didn't? As an audience member trying to relate to what's happening onscreen, there's a point where I think, Dead is dead. How much more dead can I be?

The Morals We Should But Don't Take from Superhero Movies

Unfortunately, superhero movies (and their audiences) often simplify our view of the world to an absurd degree. In reality, the villain is a society of subtle sexism, cancer and poverty. In movies it's a single super-villain.

To mark the release of this weekend's Man of Steel -- and against my better judgment -- I decided to re-watch Superman III for the first time since 1983 and hopefully not destroy a little piece of my childhood in the process. Along the way, I've committed to keeping a running diary. So here we go. (Sorry, childhood memories.)
