    I think that might be the sheer impact of the New Deal era making a lot of progressive tax ideas become generally accepted, so that what were then conservative tax policies naturally accepted the...

    Well, part of my thing is that I actually think Rey, Finn, and Kylo are all actually pretty good (Rey and Kylo) to great (Finn) in TFA... provided you recognize what strengths they do have as...

    It’s the “other factors” that I think always made me leery of the idea of Rey Not-A-Skywalker - the need to have 100% commitment to the idea of adoption/found family storytelling, the need to kill...

    Okay, that’s much more of a convincing answer to me. If you made the entire point of the ST be about rejecting the dramatic advantage of a biological family bond for a found family one, and exploited...

    And I would say that arguing the mystery box *by itself* requires more stringent standards than the actual premise and substance of the characters, concepts, and Saga is folly... and that Kylo’s...

    I voted Reilly, but really, I should have an option for “whichever one Paul Dini’s currently working on.”;)

    My only real reason to not be as interested in Wesker is that to me, he’s largely had...

    I actually wonder if a smarter way to handle Arkham nowadays to avoid all sorts of negative stereotypes and cliches about mental health and criminality/violence might be put the Asylum early in...

    “Rook” feels more and more to me like it should be considered a good “fan preferred alternative”, like “Scion” for Superboy - still on theme, still cool, and arguably a little bit more specific for...

    I think it’s just the natural result of the way WWE does booking and storytelling - it’s an already somewhat sloppy and micro-managed process that then gets built around 4 main PPVs.

    Sometime,a...

    I get that, I get all of it, I really do!

    ...But I also don’t think any of those complaints counter the problem posed by Rey Random afterwards - Kylo Ren’s legacy connection making both audiences...

    Yeah, I think her having issues makes sense, but she’s clearly about as “high-functioning” with them as Bruce is.

    ...It would be fascinating to see someone go to a real analyst to break down what...

    Entertainment industry members are in the business most likely to expose how you can be a major success story and still make seemingly rookie-level mistakes.

    I think Bendis was approaching the...

    I think Castle’s Anti-MCU rants are the counterpart to my “The Last Jedi is accidentally and fatally sexist and racist” rants...:p



    One of the best warning signs that someone isn’t arguing in...

    Is she really, though?

    Kleptomaniacs, at least those who have a severe enough case that it needs to be diagnosed, often steal things of no value and are completely unable to control the impulse. ...

    Sell me on Rey Random

    This thread was inspired by a Matt Stover interview where he apparently expressed more interest in Rey being a “Random” or a “Nobody.”

    See, I’ve generally always thought that was a shallow...

    The times the DCEU and MCU have gone after diversity both in front of and behind the camera, it paid off big time; Black Panther is its own success story and was expect3 to do so thanks in part to...

    Plus, it *is* very much a white dude’s film. Rian Johnson is usually a great filmmaker; Knives Out and Brick are fantastic. But he’s also a dude who was clearly more at home with crime fiction and...

    Except the “dangerous broken bad boy” POV in TLJ is also a male’s point of view, from Rian Johnson, and didn’t gain the film or the franchise any more female fans - female fans actually dropped...

    Exactly. Rey’s “too quick and too far” power-ups in TLJ are simply side-effects of Johnson’s crappy writing for her as a tool for Kylo and Luke’s story - he doesn’t want to “waste” time on her, so he...

    If they’d torn down Luke for Rey’s sake, she wouldn’t have been kicked out of the finale so that Luke and Kylo could do it as well.

    Face it: The Last Jedi tore down Luke so that it could pretend...

    The Sequel Trilogy “going woke” had nothing to do with its problems - if anything, it was the snap back to “sleep” that caused the problem. The $700 million difference between TFA and TLJ didn’t come...

    There’s an Arkham City Audio File where Professor Strange tries to psychoanalyze Selina, and claims she’s a misandrist (which has no real basis in the rest of that continuity) and has some daddy...

    Heh. The toxicity caused by bigots is part of the reason I keep on beating the drum tattoo for TLJ’s bigger problems being it’s own systemic racism and sexism; partially because I want to make sure...

    Agreed. The abilities and powers of the heroes, whether they’re superheroes or space opera heroes, doesn’t really matter that much - because what *does* matter is how skillfully the writer can make...
