    Throughout most of the seasons, no evidence of super combat speed or super running speed. In fact, evidence of the opposite. Standing in front of a man holding a gun on Lois, he can't just take it...

    In the original Star Trek, Roddenberry had intended a relationship between Spock and Uhura. He had to justify it by arguing that Spock isn't really a white human male but an alien and the network...

    As you said, there were always overly sensitive people. It just seems more prolific because there's a medium for it.

    True but there's a feeling that nothing can be joked about. Yes, blackface is way too far. But, to give an example, in the first Avengers movie, there's the scene where Natasha is criticizing what...

    I watched it once with my mother when I was young because it was her favorite movie and I thought I could at least be decent about it since she clearly wanted her children to like or at least respect...

    I have that one friend who, if he dislikes a movie, will endlessly make remarks under his breath.

    I used to have a friend who was the person who had to make endless stupid jokes. For instance,...

    Some good points made.

    Some things that I may consider a low point is something someone else thinks was a high point and vice versa.

    There have been high points recently. The CW Superman I...

    I will acknowledge that, just because something is not a traditional take does not make it bad. A black take on Superman could be quite good and recapture the whole "ultimate immigrant" concept. ...

    That and when people cannot comprehend parody or social commentary.

    I remember reading Huck Finn when I was in Junior High and thinking it was such a parody and social commentary on the racism and...

    i think this is a good point. For instance, one of my complaints about All-Star Superman was "Now, who are these guys? You're not explaining anything. You're just assuming everybody knows this". ...

    What I'm getting here is that you've given up on bothering with continuity because there is no continuity. :) There have been so many reboots, soft reboots and so on that, if you're going to read...

    I would say that Batman having standard gear gives him a chance but not much.

    I'm not really up on current Ironfist other than Netflix. My comic book image of him is from the 1980s. So I am...

    Yes, in my opinion, never bringing Robin into it or doing it the way Nolan did really doesn't get into the true loneliness and need for something at least vaguely resembling a meaningful personal...

    Oh, actually, that's correct too. They invoked the spirit of the First Slayer. It may have been the combined strength and speed of Buffy and the First Slayer plus Willow and Giles and Xander but he...

    I have only seen the movie once and actually couldn't remember exactly what happened in that bar scene until I saw it again here. It took a moment to realize that, oh yes, this is 1962. Those men...

    I get that. Also, at the time, westerns were still at their height or close to it. Hugh O'Brien had left the role of Wyatt Earp on television when he did some research and found out the Earps were...

    Keeping in mind that this is movies we liked- even if we knew they were bad- I actually liked Batman and Robin.

    Oh, I knew it was stupid even while watching it. But I liked the return to a more...

    No. Adam was defeated in the second to last episode of that season by the character generally known as Uber-Buffy because she had a day job giving people car rides. No, she was a composite of...

    I'm tempted to say it will stop on April 1st when they yell "April Fool's" but considering what they are capable of believing, they'll just say that was a joke but the next date isn't.

    I can't really see where Spectre of the Gun qualifies or brings anything to the table that was not already covered. Once again, "arrogant, self-righteous aliens" who seem incapable of comprehending...

    Ghost Rider was bad and almost universally panned by the critics but I actually liked it.

    Same with Green Lantern. Not as bad as made out to be but still bad. But I liked it.

    Yes. I thought Godzilla (1998) was a decent movie. Nothing great but good.

    Hulk (2003) just wasn't the big superhero action movie people wanted. It was deeply character driven and explored...

    Good one.

    There's no such thing as a universally disliked movie. The ones that are mostly disliked *cough* Highlander 2 *cough* are deservedly disliked.

    Then there's the movies like the ones...

    I have not seen Wandavision. But it seems to me this would be a quickdraw.

    By the way, the original short story by Jerome Bixby is even scarier than the Twilight Zoie episode. In the short...
