Geez. Any person who has ever enjoyed a decent film knows that films should never leave open the door for imagining things, and it has to answer every question at every level, and stuff.
I presume this was aimed at me, a person who according to your critique of my criticism, has never enjoyed a decent film.

The particular criticism isn't asking for Superman to save more lives -- he saved a planet, didn't he? It's asking the movie to kinda say something about, you know, about all that death and destruction that just happened. Have a news montage, show Superman just looking at the smoking ruins, a girl planting a flower, a "city under construction" sign -- something.

Instead, Superman's hot, everything in Metropolis seems hunky-dory and there are courtside seats to the game.

I'm not dismissing the movie here because I know a great many loved it, and it isn't my intention to derail anyone's enjoyment. But this seems like a valid talking point so I raised it.

So... maybe we could discuss this without the need to dismiss my or anyone's opinion as a viewer?
