    …Okay, I actually bought the audiobook for this thing, and HOLY SHIT, this should be a great movie if it can capture any of the human drama and complexity of the actual history. And the caliber of...

    Im a Christian white dude who voted for McCain and Romney before voting for Clinton and Biden, and my most prolific Civil War ancestor was in the Army of Northern Virginia (I have another in a Union...
  3. Punk’s MMA career never even really gained the...

    Punk’s MMA career never even really gained the notoriety to be a mark against him - plenty of other wrestlers have their lack of actual fighting skill known to the public.

    Now, I would say that...
  4. Well, the DYV movie Under the Red Hood is...

    Well, the DYV movie Under the Red Hood is actually a fairly high caliber story with excellent execution, as compared to just Under the Hood, the original comic, which was a hit, but also sloppy and a...
  5. I’m the weirdo who liked everything about Dark...

    I’m the weirdo who liked everything about Dark Victory better than The Long Halloween save for one subplot (Harvey becoming Two-Face), so I guess my opinion of TLH’s story *is* actually pretty low;...

    My perception of Red Robin and the prior period of the Robin solo was that Dixon, Yost, and Nicieza successfully “made lemonade” from the “lemons” that DC had given Tim previously sometime after...

    Dini writes one of the few Bruces who…

    - Feels completely natural sitting down by his girlfriend’s bed-side and taking his time to express his feelings to her,

    - Feels completely comfortable...

    Indeed.

    I’ll be honest, I think Winnick is strictly a journeyman comic-book writer on average with some serious flaws that have at times overcome his work… but he clearly showed he could fine-tune...

    Shadow Bat is still my preferred favorite of possible alternatives.
  10. New 52 Teen Titans made Tim a victim/tool of...

    New 52 Teen Titans made Tim a victim/tool of sexual assault that the writer was in denial about and completely changed his background for no reason while consistently demonstrating that Lobdell had...
  11. I actually think right now it’s about equal with...

    I actually think right now it’s about equal with the Under the Red Hokd in terms of degree or changes to the source material - people sometimes forget or overlook how much Winnick modified, removed,...

    We’re at a point where I would say that AEW could have an awesome year, the industry could theoretically open-up across the board with “faux-territories” style cross-promotions… and it still wouldn’t...

    Zorro and The Shadow for Batman, full stop. Bill Finger’s writing with early Batman, the type that most successive writers emulated, was basically a bunch of Zorro tropes and ideas, but played with...

    I really like the looks of this.

    …I like the fact that Ridley Scott seems unlikely to trust only in Driver’s looks to convey why he should have a good role even better; no repeated of The Last...

    Karrion Kross’s loss is almost funny in a way; I’ve long thought that he was a deliberate change from the NXT formula into a more Vince-appealing style to try and package-deliver a guy Vince would...

    I feel like Hollywood’s recollection of its “Golden Age” is less a matter of film quality overall, and more that the studios felt their most secure and in control in that time, that they’d cracked...

    I’d say proportionately, there’s been about the same amount of crap movies, decent movies, and great movies in every decade. And the passage of time still ends up being what really determines what...

    As someone whos grandma always watched the Western channel, and have myself watched it, the western was easily a greater and more inescapable genre for the bulk of cinema history. Epic westerns,...

    So the Cyber Ninja “audit” of Arizona has done its earliest narrative-construction - they found an area where a clerical short-cut lets them pretend that there’s a clerical error. Basically, Arizona...

    I’m another “somewhere in-between” voter.

    I think he *should* be a character who lands on the “protagonist vigilante” side of the spectrum, but I don’t think he should just be a bland,...

    I’ve generally run off the idea that Nolan’s Batman doesn’t do “executions” more as a standard of minimal restraint and as part of his general effort to support the justice system rather than replace...

    AEWs audience is *very* smark heavy and tends to embrace the old Attitude Era idea that a character is only a heel if the audience wants to boo him and that theres nothing wrong with rooting for...

    Admittedly, a lot of my opinion here is taste, but I prefer it when Crane doesn’t have a compulsion to cause fear, but is rather just a sadistic sociopath in control fo himself, making him more...
  24. Not being “mentally stable” does not...

    Not being “mentally stable” does not automatically equal criminally insane in the sense of not being responsible for their actions, and there wouldn’t exactly be anything lost by making it clear that...

    This also, honestly, feels like it wouldn’t be as hard to fix; most of his foes don't even have a really good approximation of any believable mental illness, just an inaccurate pop-culture diagnosis....
