I have been "informed" that I must update this blog or die. I kind of like my petty little life, so I guess I have to do something.
Let's see... oh yeah, I've been trying to write something about the new Superman Returns movie. Not really a review, but about how blatantly Christian Superman is. I mean, good Lord, one has to be blind not to make the connection. Meanwhile, we all talk about how Narnia is a Christian allegory. Hello?
**** SPOILER ALERT ****
*** don't read on if you haven't seen the movie and you'd like to see it some day... ***
"To the People on Earth, I give you my only son..." Oh, c'mon!
"I hear everything..." Please.
"You said the world didn't need a savior, but every day I hear people asking for one..." Wow, revelation!
"God is someone who flies around in a cape and doesn't share his powers..." Interesting.
And when Superman falls back onto Earth, what is the shape that his body is making?....
Then he dies. Flatlined, actually.
Then he comes back to life again. Better yet, a female comes into the "room" and finds it empty. Superman has risen!
I am just surprised that the church hasn't promoted Superman Returns like they did with Narnia. An American icon + religious symbolism? This is wonderful stuff!
