Injustice. Outrage. Violation of body and trust. Here’s one thing we can do about it.
I’ve written before about whether or not Hannibal Lecter (in Bryan Fuller’s titular series) is being presented without some necessary flaws. After seeing how he’s being treated after his capture, I see no reason to change that opinion. [Spoilers follow for Season 3, so far.]
To me, O Nerds! I’m writing a scifi screenplay and have questions about the procedures involved in developing / testing / releasing new technology into the field.
Mad Max: Fury Road is taking the world by storm, and with good reason: It’s balls-to-the-wall action wrapped around an elegant, high-stakes race for survival. It deliberately keeps things simple, but crucial... just like one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time.
As the various Marvel Comics wind down in advent of Secret Wars, one of the driving mysteries left has been the secret identity of Thor, Goddess of Thunder. Issue #8 dropped in our laps, along with the Thunder Goddess’ true identity— and a big whopping case of hypocrisy. Spoilers below.
I love me some Adventure Time, but I’m noticing an ongoing trend that I find just a wee bit unsettling: namely that there’s almost no theme of justice in a series that is more or less packaged for kids. What the math?
I’m enjoying Game of Thrones as season five continues to unfold, but Jaqen H’Gar is one of the single worst cases of Trickster Mentors I’ve come across. He’s awful. Click through on the link below to find out why: http://bit.ly/1zfpjmF
Rumors abound on who will be the next Friendly Neighborhood Webslinger. After Marvel declared that Miles Morales would not be joining the MCU, I’d hoped— really hoped— that they might exercise a damn loophole. Where’s it written that Peter Parker has to be white?
Having a conversation with a friend, the topic drifted on its own to Shadow of the Vampire, a personal favorite and instant classic of vampire cinema. If you haven’t seen it already, then you really need to re-evaluate your life choices.
James Whitbrook gave us an in-depth look at the decades-long history of Batgirl, and rightly identified the abuse the character's suffered. But: in reading his article, I found myself smiling in spite of myself, because there is absolutely nothing you can do to keep Barbara Gordon down.
I'm torn, here. On the one hand, I have a deep, abiding love for Adventure Time. This show's my jam. On the other hand, I straight-up despise Lumpy Space Princess.
