Re: She-Ra: The Princesses of Power (Series Overview)

Ultimately it's about telling a story more than preaching to the audience, and She-Ra manages that.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Being overdramatic about the upcoming death of the comic-book industry due to [insert cause of the week here] has been a popular pastime for certain online pundits for a while now. Whole bunch of them on YouTube like to blame the 'social justice warriors', and various modern comics that feature wome...

Re: She-Ra: The Princesses of Power (Series Overview)

I think we put a bit too much importance on 'subtle' politics, or being 'apolitical'. There basically isn't any such thing. Everything is political. The difference is whether you agree with the politics or they're generally accepted enough that they're an assumed fact of the world, and business as u...

I love Scorpia. She's the best.

She's secretly joining Starfleet and decided to modify her uniform to partially match.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

That's easily one of the worst things I've ever seen. It's just outright horrifically transphobic and insensitive. Snowflake is an insult. And not one that a pair of cis men have the ability to 'reclaim'. Sincerely, could you elaborate? I thought snowflake was just a general insult for someone who ...

Re: Terminator: Dark Fate

This film was made as James Cameron's last word on the Terminator franchise. And some people have criticized it for being political. But I just watched this movie. And I didn't find it overly so. Nine times out of ten, 'political' means 'there's a woman or person of colour in it'. Especially if the...

Re: Superteam Handbook

I personally really liked the book, and I didn't think any of the teams really counted as subversions of the concept at all. Instead they struck me merely as popular variations. Some of them might have started as subversions, insofar as you can even subvert the superhero genre at all outside of dark...

Re: Joker

Of course, I should add as an addendum to that, the reason people were afraid of this inspiring mass shootings? The Joker-inspired weirdo mass shooter who literally shot up a theatre playing Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado. And I wasn't even talking about the 'inspire mass shootings from incel...

Yeah because no theatres have had to close because of credible threats or anything.

Re: Joker

Even beyond the film's apparent shitty politics and the weird anti-social justice rants of its director, who apparently based the whole thing off of his own failed stand-up career... The film just looks like boring and pretentious garbage masquerading as something deeper while masquerading as a supe...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jotun! Tengu! Haniver! Medusa! Vampires!)

The only good vamp is one that's flambe'd. I hate the idea of vampires. Especially the 'sexy' ones. In my mind, there is no such thing as a sexy vampire. They're animated corpses for goodness sakes! You're basically making whoo-whoo eyes at a walking dead thing. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. I never understood...
