This is the case in the original novel as well.
Even though most MCU-literate people know it was technically possible that Jane could have been welcomed into Asgard by both Loki AND Heimdall, it probably would have been needlessly confussing for casual movie fans to accept that “Main Universe Loki” is still very much dead, and that the Loki of the show is a rogue “v… Read more
I am so tired of these backwaters with people in rags. Any civilization that has conquered FTL travel and advanced AI and robotics will not be toiling in the dirt, will not need to farm for moisture (terraforming), or living in mud brick buildings. It’s all clearly meant to shave dollars off the budget, but why!? Read more
Yup. While I very much disagree with the first point (love a good self-doubting hero), and the last point (you seem to have missed a huge part of star wars being a fantasy western from its very conception) everything else is on point. The entirety of the show is a series of pathetic retcons. Read more
Ah, another one of the 15 of us who saw The Fall! I see you are a person of culture.
I loved Daredevil’s second season specifically because it opened with Matt in the suit from the jump.
As a Chinese-descent Asian, having a Chinese-descent character be Iron Fist was the worst case scenario when all this talk about changing Danny’s race came out. I still hate it. When I was in school, most Chinese kids my age hated martial arts. We thought it was lame. Many didn’t like how when people like us appear in… Read more
My worst nightmare is being trapped in an elevator with a vegan empath.
Congratulations on buying a son for Christmas! Did you get a black Friday deal or did you pay retail? Asking for a friend.

When one of the NPCs, I mean characters, mentioned that there were five possible Dragon Reborn candidates, not four, my first thought was “thank fuck, it might not be one of these kids.”
I was pleasantly surprised by how charming Kit Harrington ended up being, I didn’t really get that from him in Game of Thrones, but I really bought him here as a totally safe, well intentioned guy that you could fall for if you’re an ageless hottie with matter changing powers.
I really liked Eternals. I liked all the Marvel films this year. Sure the big explosive end of Black Widow was kind of meh but all the family stuff was awesome and I loved every moment of it. And Shang-Chi was just so much fun and beautiful and touching and had both dragon and Wong doing karaoke and what more can one… Read more
Really, no “Stuff You Missed in History Class”?? Ok then...
The are only two things of note in the second film:
1) They unceremoniously killed off Roxie at the start (and fuck them for doing it).
2) Elton John almost saves it with his completely bonkers and increasingly miserable cameos. Read more
