    It's important to maintain perspective. America, even under Trump, treats immigrants better than most other countries do.

    So the argument about basic human decency neglects the policies of the...
  2. The Spider-Man Movies Could Have Gone in a Very Different Direction

    In the 1980s Cannon Films (which produced B-list horror films) had the option for Spider-Man, and was interesting in adapting the character as a knock-off of Cronenberg's The Fly. They had director...

    The original films worked with Shakespearean actors, and the prequels were supposed to have characters who could become Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in the future. Everyone had also wanted to...

    I meant that I don't know if Juggernaut works as the sole villain for the movie. He might be a better fit as someone's sidekick.

    If you think the Obama administration ran concentration camps and then reversed course, that would be a crucial distinction with Trump. Generally, the people saying that the Trump administration ran...

    There are a few factors.

    He does have a lot of projects, which increases his chances of getting adaptations made. He was a believer in the idea that it's best to have several shorter projects than...

    With this level of hype, I was at least expecting a Todd McFarlane page. A project by the writer of a bunch of recent Spider-Man projects, the artist of a current Spider-Man mini-series and a writer/...

    Regarding that change it seems to repeat territory we've seen before. Spider-Girl had a baby sibling. It's also a bit unusual for a couple with a teenager who has grown up as an only child to have a...

    An issue with this kind of argument is that it's not about arguing for the merits, but about countering the viewpoints of others. People have different reasons for coming to a conclusion on the...

    For the purposes of determining whether the migrant detention facilities under the Obama administration counted as concentration camps, the rhetoric doesn't matter. If there's a definition that...

    A desire for fame and fortune is hardly limited to white males, though. Wanting the hot popular girl doesn't have anything to do with race or privilege.

    This is interesting.

    The New York Times asked the Democratic presidential candidates to answer 18 questions, some on major policy questions and some on personal stuff.

    1. In an ideal world,...

    Tami, by the definition you provide that a place where large numbers of people are detained or confined under armed guard is a concentration camp, prisons count. It doesn't matter whether the...

    Guantanamo was different.

    You had people accused of crimes kept against their will for years.

    They were generally taken against their will from their residences. The decision to move them to...

    I just meant that no one deserved the level of mistreatment that has been described.

    I'll also add that one potential solution is the current deal the Trump administration seems to be getting with...

    I don't think we could describe Peter as an entitled WASP. Every take on his background before the spider bite showed that he wasn't very popular socially, and that he didn't grow up with wealth.
  17. With prisoners, it is the duty of the prosecutors...

    With prisoners, it is the duty of the prosecutors to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, since they're being deprived of freedoms their fellow citizens are usually entitled to.

    It's a bit...
  18. The argument that it's a concentration camp is...

    The argument that it's a concentration camp is category creep, extending the definition so far it no longer means the same thing, while trying to stick with the negative associations of the earlier...

    It might be better to do what the Nolan Batman films did, and save the big villain for the sequel, where you don't have to worry about origins.

    That could work.

    He's an A-lister who hasn't...

    I welcome Democrats making this argument, rather than having it be the subtext.

    I'll agree that they don't care that much about optics, although they shouldn't. An argument about optics essentially ignores the important things, and suggests time and money be wasted on something...

    Well, Cheney's right.

    The comparison between citizens who were murdered by the millions, and people who have no right to be in the country and aren't being murdered is absurd.

    Just because two...

    To be fair, they have given James Bond a very specific background. His family estate in the Scottish Highlands played a big role in Skyfall. Ian Fleming gave him a Scottish father and Swiss mother in...

    While Slott wanted Spider-Verse to feature Otto, the story was supposed to be published earlier. In the schedule, it was swapped out with the Spider-Man 2099 and Venom stories.
