    People give Bay a little too much credit he's a frat boy and has been on for a very long time, he even played one in Mystery Men

    I haven't seen any of these movies as I saw the Anthony Anderson scene where he was arrested and said nope

    Nintendo's upcoming game Ever Oasis, which is their first game with the protagonist player character being a POC (Elma in Xenoblade X was a POC but was not the main player character) got some new gameplay footage

    Man, this is a tough issue. I feel like this is a really important story that needed to be told but now I don't know if I can support it in good conscience.

    I've been reading a lot about Nate Parker and The Birth Of A Nation at LaineyGossip. I know a gossip site might seem like a strange source of info for a topic like this but they talk about social issues and minority representation a lot over there. Their newest writer Kathleen has been writing a lot about this situation and her opinions on it as a black woman who strongly wanted to support this movie. I definitely recommend reading them for anyone who's interested. I'm posting links to the articles in chronological order.

    That film is dead in the water now.

    Theatrically, its gonna fail hard.

    Rape cases like this are so difficult from the sidelines. He was acquitted... so who am i to judge from articles if hes a rapist or not? But withbhow badly rape cases are handled and the harrassment thing....

    This is how I feel too. I also feel bad for the black actors involved in this film who may have their chances at starring other movies ruined due to their association with this movie.

    Oh. I thought this was a prequel or something? Though it makes sense since I guess Zod's family is black in Earth-2?

    Im an aspiring comic book writer. my brother and I were having a discussion about asian leads in comics, and he says that if i wanted to make a comic with an asian lead, im probably in the wrong line of work, he thinks that if i had to make an asian lead atleast make the character half white and dont make him look asian cuz people dont really relate to asians. you guys think he's right?
