SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL
Russell Crowe continues his campaign of good will as this story from the Facebook community demonstrates: “So my Aunt was driving around today and was looking for directions. She saw someone walking on the street and she asked him for directions. He is not from this area so he couldn’t help her.

THE BOY WHO LIVED
So, over the last year, I’ve been converted to “Harry Potter.” While I enjoy the world, I still find some plot points odd, like the one pointed out in this “How It Should Have Ended” video (via Blastr):
Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous.
