    There are plenty of books that don't fall into these simple narration traps on the shelves these days.

    And that there may be other poorly written books out there doesn't excuse this book or this...

    That's a pretty shitty company and is probably losing clients and employees.

    I guess I just need more than characters I like just standing in cool poses.

    I thought perhaps it would be improved by the Deadly Green because others said it provided some answers...but it only...

    I just don't think you've actually shown that to be true. Most films find recognition as they age and are then reevaluated with where they fit into the established canon of "classics" as the people...

    So let's say you're a salesmen, your metrics are all the highest in the company (highest number of contracts, best close percentage and largest dollar amount) but you also slapped another employee in...

    If one does something heinous then they shouldn't be eligible for an award...I don't understand what's complicated about that.

    I still don't think there is anything to your premise.

    If you look at the original AFI list of 100 greatest films from 1998 you'll see only Schindler's list in the top twenty and then a few more...

    Now, before I go any further, I'll say that Tom King is a good writer and more than capable of spinning an entertaining yarn; for instance I loved his take on Dick Grayson as a master spy in Grayson,...

    Yeah, a lot of Mignola's early Hellboy stories are like that; popping up in strange places with interesting layouts caused by the medium they were in. It unintentionally gives the stories a pulp feel...

    I can't speak for Blunt, but when I say nothing happened, I mean nothing of consequence. Sure there were fights, and people posing and Pariah showed up on Earth...but we didn't learn anything, there...

    I continue to fail to get how anyone could be entertained by this book...it just seems so lack luster. They kept showing the multi-verse map with darkness infecting it over and over like it was...

    I finally got around to playing Pokemon:Arceus and while not as great as Breath of the Wild, it still had a great feeling of exploration.

    I think an interesting list to look at when considering the question is AFI's 100 years...100 Movies list as they did two lists and they were ten years apart which shows how views changed with time....

    And that's much, much different than "Are films from the last 25 years classics". And the qualifications I mentioned like, "are films from from the last 25 years still getting TV play" "Do they get...

    Is the question "Why aren't movies from the last 25 years rated better than films from years past?" or "Are there no more classics?" because those are two separate questions.

    One might view...

    I think you're imagining things, there are plenty of films from the last 25 years that regularly make critics and regular viewers "best of" lists. Off the top of my head I'd say there is near...

    If we're talking real life races or species, yeah 100% we shouldn't be labeling anything or anyone "evil"...but we're talking orcs here, it's pure fantasy and not even based allegorically on any real...

    Yeah, I really loved that turn. We knew he led a double life from the trailers but I had thought that he'd be a senator.

    They could be changed...but the show doesn't seem to be going that way. Other than Adar's speech there has been zero signs that these are creatures that want peace.

    Yeah, I loved the 2016 one myself it was easily a top five in my list of favorite Tarzan films. Still, any Tarzan is a good thing so I'm all for another.

    I don't think it's a misguided statement at all, she wasn't saying that G4 didn't include Munn and others for sex appeal(it was very obvious that they did) it was that exploitive behavior like that...

    I don't get the complaint over the view of the orcs. I guess it speaks to the skills of actor who plays Adar that some bought into his, "I just want a home for my children" speech but when you stop...
