    Wow! You really said it. That's exactly it. ...

    Wow! You really said it. That's exactly it.

    At least emotionally and theoretically, the Spider-Man who exists now is the same one who had all those adventures written by Stan and Steve. The FF,...

    I didn't watch this one but CBS and specifically "60 Minutes" has been doing garbage like that since the 1980s.

    Report on the possibility of UFOs, the 1980s.

    Dan Rather: You can see there is...

    I can't remember the name of the movie bit there was some horrible low budget movie in the 1990s that introduced the word "specist" as in bigoted based on species. I've heard it a few times since.

    So, this would be the equivalent of Dr. Richard Dawkins debating Ray Comfort. In this case, AOC would be Dawkins which really says how far down the scale Greene is.

    The only problem is that the...

    I think that in the #MeToo era, Whedon didn't comprehend how much stuff like that backfires. You'd have a bunch of actors coming out and saying that it is not true that she's hard to work with. ...

    In spite of my remark, I think WW came off as both better and worse in the theatrical version.

    On the negative side, she had the scenes that objectified her far more.

    On the positive side, she...

    As long as the Democratic party can stay united, I think the divisions Trump has caused in the Republican party is great. Hopefully, it will utterly split the party as Trumpists keep accusing...

    Yeah, stuff you could blatantly say in the 1960s or 1970s gets called SJW if done today. Can you imagine that Star Trek episode with Frank Gorshin if done today, the one where they were half-black...

    I think the problem here is a two-edged sword.

    The question was: what could the Oscars do to get their ratings higher?

    The answer is: Nominate movies most people care about.

    It's not the...

    I laughed at the part where Whedon told her he could make her look bad. Oh, he did that just by her being in his version of the movie.

    Exactly. Marvel gets that an audience will respond positively to a character that has a positive attitude and is basically a hero. DC sits around wondering how they can make Superman "relevant" and...

    Good point. Thor was created, by Stan Lee's own admission, to be their equivalent to Superman. But he was set up with a fellow god as his main opponent, a god of trickery and illusion and esoteric...

    I don't think that's a realistic solution anymore. This is not the Golden Age when Superman was the only superhero or where all others were weaker and he was the Superman. Even Green Lantern back...

    It's kind of, "Being stupid enough to believe everything you hear is not a defense". Especially when you know there has been no evidence (of mass voter fraud) and overwhelming evidence against it...

    The irony is that Conservatives on a jury won't accept that defense but might acquit because, hey, it's not a delusion, it's true. OR they won't buy it because Fox is now a Liberal network and you...

    Yes, B.A. lost a fight in the very first episode. Then he lost when he went against someone with serious martial arts abilities (Professor Toru Tanaka).

    Is Atrocity A worse than Atrocity B?

    Not much point here.

    How bad is Creationism? Depends on what you associate it with. In and of itself, it's just an ignorant belief that ignores facts...

    Mind you, I think some stuff could be cool and a different twist by doing that. Having a female Doctor Who or a female 007, not specifically James Bond but the next 007, could be great IF done well....

    Hollywood has often tended to go for the remake. There's no reason diversity should be immune to typical Hollywood tactics. From the days of "Blacula" or the black version of the Odd Couple to more...

    From watching one youtube video, it seems like Elliott Spencer may just be too fast. There's a scene where he practically aim dodges and another where he moves fast enough to draw and fire against...

    It depends on the situation for me. If it's a true restart, I don't have a problem with race changing or orientation changing a character. Nick Fury is now Samuel L. Jackson in the movies and was...

    Yes. It's partly age. I grew up on the Silver Age. I welcomed the Post-Crisis era. Then all the soft reboots happened and seemed to become a constant. By 2011, that reboot did not feel like the...

    For me, the problem with that was that you have to go back and rewrite the Golden Age stories for that to work. I'm bi so I have no problems with his being gay. It can work. But it seems...

    They are now pandering to the most willfully ignorant, stupid and bigoted which has become essentially the Republican party. I don't even think Trump created that mentality. He just brought it out...
