    Yeah, there were blatantly people who hated Finn, Rose, and others for being non-white, and Rey is clearly dealing with some sexism as well.

    There *is* an interesting case of “factionalism” on...
  2. That’s a problem I can understand... but one that...

    That’s a problem I can understand... but one that I still feel is a bit more on TLJ and apathy towards Rey than on TFA or TROS (the latter of which actually did insist on some offscreen training.)...

    A hell of a lot of Rey fans turned on TLJ - because that fanbase got split between Kylo Ren fanboys and fan girls on one side, and between people who weren’t Kylo aren’t fanboys and fan girls on the...

    Rey didn’t “earn” stuff in that she largely ends up simply accumulating familiar power, weapons, ships, names and etc., without having any story build-up to them.

    But I still say that’s more the...
  5. Part of the problem is that “Mary Sue” is easily...

    Part of the problem is that “Mary Sue” is easily abused by people to describe their own sexist issues, so even those who try to use it honestly have to deal with “argument hi-hackers.”

    One thing I...

    Hotel California was the first thing that popped into my mind when I read the thread’s title.:cool:

    But how’s about something like “O Death?”
  7. I still think “abused badly written girlfriend to...

    I still think “abused badly written girlfriend to a shallow-ass Diet Anakin” is a worse problem than having too much power - and that Johnson ignoring training in TLJ was a much bigger deal for the...

    I’m not arguing that Rey is as good as Jyn Erso.

    I *am* arguing that it wasn’t Rey’s power level that hurt her character, or even Finn, really, as her male lead; hell, he ran most of the story in...
  9. And to be blunt, neither The Force Awakens nor...

    And to be blunt, neither The Force Awakens nor Rogue One suffered from having female leads at all. And I’d even argue that “redoing” the OT with a female lead isn’t a bad idea... but let’s face it,...

    I’ve wondered if a good “origin story” for Almerac might be to make it a “gateway” planet against Apokilips, Mongul, The Reach, etc., with the idea being that’s why they’re a warlike powerhouse but...

    Here’s a few!

    Terra-Man, AKA The Terran With No Name
    - If you know how Erron Black rolls in the new Mortal Kombat games, that’s how The Terran rolls here... but replace “hired killer” with...

    “Wait... are you two flirting?”

    “You are flirting! Flirterers!”

    :D

    I loved how the story with shoes had Selina doing a Bruce impression; I love the idea that in a city that fears and hates...

    I think she was saying “Words... you will be mine!”, as a sign of her desire for communication.

    Great to see Marcus To back on one of the kids, though.

    Well, part of the issue with Jason here is that Lobdell’s writing for the character was often kind of “cordoned off” from the rest of the Batbooks, amending that what should be classified as a...

    Writing good conflicts is the bigger issue; arguably. One of the reasons Lex has remained the primary antagonist is because enough writers have used their imagination make him both a...

    Eh, usually it’s not an issue.

    The onyl times it has been is in stuff like early Rebels before they up the ante for the villains, or in TLJ, where no one’s allowed to have a competent brain cel in...

    For the record, it took quite a while to really have WWE’s annual content to degrade to that level after the 90’s boom - while there’s usually whole almanacs composed of choices that people can pull...

    One of the things that I hope continues as a recurring trend for Thrawn in the live action shows her evidence that the Empire he believed was pragmatically the best ally his people could have is in...

    I think WWE accidentally contributed to it a bit with their sometimes unwise creative decisions; once you know your audience is fully in on the gimmick, you have to be able to intelligently construct...

    I think the answer would be that he would find that the alien businessmen on top of the public food chain wouldn’t suit his desires or needs. I think he’s genuinely a human supremacist, and an...

    I’m pretty sure they’re just laying out how the Arrowverse handled Laurel Lance, and just adding the Barbara name and Gordon affair as a counterpart to them trying to make Dinah “Laurel” instead (a...

    While a lot of it is the simple genre necessities, I really do think that Filoni is leaning hard into the idea that the Stormtroopers just aren’t up to par with the clonetroopers - and that it’s a...

    The dissonance becomes frighteningly clear when you realize the insane double standard it’s actually backing: a “Protect those guys who keep an eye on others, and get your eyes off me!” ethos. From...

    On the other hand, they now all have returned in some way, shape or form, while DC often forgets members of the Arrow family.

    I bet Bruce has a reusable casket now.

    What it means is that I’ve been listening to a lot of “Dresden Files” audio books, where the fairy queens operate on a type of “morality” scale that makes *a* kind of sense... but not a particularly...
