The latest outing of Superman is out, and the reviews are . . . mixed. This is a new take on Superman, grittier, more Dark Knight and less Boy Scout in blue tights. I’ve got a detailed review up at buzzymag.

An excerpt:
I didn’t know I was such a purist.

I love comic books.

But my Superman is definitely NOT science fiction. And Man of Steel is, at its heart, a science fiction film as it attempts to ground Superman in realism.
