Like everyone else here who follows what's going on, I can look forward to a sequel addressing the aftermath of the invasion, which if done right, will be all kinds of wonderful.

But how about those in the GA who were troubled with the unacknowledged death and destruction? Those who don't know that there's going to be a sequel, let alone know or care who the heck Goyer is.

Tempest, you say people who take issue with this have "delicate sensibilities". But what's so wrong with someone else being sensitive to it? What if someone is bothered by the unaccounted for 9-11 imagery -- do we call the person out to be a big baby?

It's clear you were emotionally invested in and affected by the movie, and you said it beautifully here:

If this had been a comic book, a panel with no words where he is kneeling, exhausted amidst the rubble, with Lois Lane holding him while he wept would have been a fitting and beautiful way to acknowledge what happened. Seeing it in live action was so powerful and gorgeously done. I don't understand how that single moment is not enough for some people.

But doesn't that mean that you too have delicate sensibilities? Just of a different receptivity?
