    Well, when the stories aren't War and Peace, it's usually a good idea to at least make them enjoyable.

    No one will confuse the Infinity Saga as a masterstroke of writing either. What it is,...

    I really think the Multiverse ends up being the answer to this. Then...prequels.

    I agree, mentioning Ben a few more times would've been more important. But perhaps they are waiting for that as Peter's hero work takes the next step up? In previous movies (where, I agree, they...

    Exactly. People are burnt out on bad X-men stories. The MCU has movie-goer trust, they'll show up just fine.

    You might find more people willing to talk about strengths and weaknesses if you got off that flimsy branch you argue on every day. Why would anyone want to have a nuanced discussion like that with...

    I think it has something to do with their comfort in work environments. As the accuser of Perry noted, it's more to do with power than it is with gender and I tend to agree with that.

    I also...

    I don't believe "calling them out" is constructive. At least not in an aggressive way, it'll have the opposite effect. Truth is, while they may be disloyal to Democrats they are reliable to vote as...

    Absolutely! But these racists are, deliberately or not, unaware of their own racism.

    Here's an uncomfortable truth: yes, I would agree there are a lot of "nice" racists as you describe, I also think many of them would vote Democrat.

    I eagerly await the days of their thinking...

    Near Rep. King huh? Well, I can't speak to deep red Iowa, but I can speak to central and Western MN and parts of Wisconsin and Illinois....there are minds you can change there. Especially if you...

    Well said. I'd only add that it's more damaging than ammunition. It's that, but it's also playing to a caricature that emboldens that caricature. That strengthens your enemy and weakens your allies...

    Yes, I agree, but would you say that a good story can't be told, in the X-men mythos, with some other atrocity? I'm just not ruling it out, is all.

    I'd prefer Magneto keeps his Jewish heritage...

    I disagree. I grew up in the rural Midwest, many of the parties in that region of the country include "Farmer" in their party name.

    Is there a percentage you can't reach? Sure, but it's not as...

    I agree. You could've put it out in any month and it doesn't change that people didn't care. The simplest explanation is that people were done with FoX-Men. I'm guessing Disney saw that in their...

    Look at those minute totals on Cyclops. I mean, that's where we bust out the "'Nuff Said" and the argument is over right?

    In black and white numbers it's almost worse than it seems. I guarantee...

    Right, bad movies still make a crap ton of money. The fact that Phoenix opened as a dud is more of an indication that the appetite for it was non-existent. People hungry for something, even if they...

    I came here to say this, just probably not as well. I had read King's short story it was based on and that actually made the ending even more of a knife to the heart. That ending was numbingly...

    I don't think these elaborate efforts are necessary. People were done with the franchise, Disney read the tea leaves, and determined Phoenix was a sunk cost.

    It was. They followed the old adage...

    I think there is some ambiguity that all turns out well in the end. Even if it does....what kind of morality tale is this? Rape, plunder, and abuse people to a happy ending?

    I disagree that a story about a survivor of genocide can only be as good as however you rank the genocide historically. I find that a bizarre notion really.

    People didn't care. Spending money on the bleak hope of making money is the kind of foolish decision Disney avoids. And they did.
