They're Seeing Things!

I'm sick of it! I'm sick and tired of New York/East Coast media seeing things that are just not there!

In his review of Superman Returns for Entertainment Weekly (featured here at CNN.com, Owen Gleiberman describes one of the settings as:
"a crystalline fortress of megalomania, which evokes the remains of the World Trade Center."

I sure hope to hell that wasn't director Bryan Singer's intention. In my opinion, the "crystalline fortress of megalomania" Gleiberman is referring to is suppose to appear as a bastardized version (or bizzaro version if you want to stay within the Superman universe) of Superman's Fortress of Solitude, not a recreation of Ground Zero. Anyone in their right minds and not still suffering from 9/11 shell-shock can see that. Gleiberman is obviously neither.
