    I haven't even seen the show yet because I watch stuff on Netflix and she's already been driven out?

    Unfortunately, the anonymity of the Net has created a whole not so bold environment to...

    One thing AA did was get more black people into college and hence access to an equal education. That was in the 1970s. By now, to argue that someone got the job only because of AA. you'd have to...

    I agree totally that Redford was not a coo because he asked them and because getting big name actors in a superhero movie is no big deal anymore. Superhero movies are the star right now and even big...

    So, basically, better to do nothing about inequality in any form than risk that some people who are already racist or sexist will use it as an excuse for their racism/ sexism. That's just an excuse...

    What an insult to Granny Clampett.

    The big thing for me is that it's not going to be on Netflix or even on the WB/ DC streaming service. I'd be one of those people buying HBO just to see one movie. Not going to happen.

    Again, Stallone, Hopkins, Stewart, McKellan, Redford... These guys did a superhero movie long after the idea of a major star doing such a movie was legitimized in the late '70s through the late '80s...

    Very good points in the article and here that Snyder seems to skip over the main point of some of those works. Yes Superman in the real world would have to deal with all sorts of sick and crazy...

    I can also see that it will almost certainly be far more consistent. Also, since it will probably never be taken as the canon version by most people, it is just something to satisfy a segment of...

    I can see it being argued either way. He writes female lead characters who are complex people. But he also falls into certain stereotypical patterns. The Lesbian characters must either die, turn...

    I was never a big fan though I did once see the original Star Wars at one.

    I'm over 60 and diabetic so the first thing that crossed my mind seeing this thread was: what about restrooms?

    I'm...

    Why? Because he had the audacity to point out that a movie subverts expectations simply to subvert expectations in a way that makes no sense because the director just likes subverting expectations?

    Wait. The creator of Buffy has a problem with female characters?
  14. I'm glad that a segment of fandom will get the...

    I'm glad that a segment of fandom will get the alternate version they want to see. But the very fact that the title of the article is "A Darker Justice League" indicates it is going to exhibit the...

    I know it's beating the proverbial dead horse but "The Last Jedi" has become the poster child for the "Subverting expectations" defense as joke. Or, as a friend of mine put it, after TLJ, whenever...

    What is wrong with Neil Cavuto? Why does this guy persist in telling the truth to an audience that despises truth?

    Next you're gonna tell me he's not the dude wearing a mask with lightning bolts protruding from it anymore.

    This is inevitably going to break down based on the examples given and whether someone liked or disliked that particular movie.

    For instance, there are people who hated IM3 and cannot understand...

    Poor Vulture. Never given the respect his cool non-corny costume deserves.

    Really, he was my favorite of the original SS.

    As usual with me, not really up on current versions but general impression based on classic versions.

    Strange in a way because the vast majority of white people who are not rich would also come out better with national health care. The lobbying and propaganda seem to be the prevalent reason people...

    I do sincerely hope that, if nothing else good results from this pandemic, at least national health care finally gets pushed through because of it. Well, that and Trump losing.

    Wasn't Obama on the verge of getting national health care started until the Tea Party fiasco in 2010?
