The attempted murder part is fine, that’s just what supervillains do, killing the hero is their primary motivation. It’s the implication that she was sexually assaulted, which adds nothing to the story, that’s indefensible and completely out of character for Joker.

As far as how Titans handles that aspect of the Read more

“She’ll be playing an older version of Barbara inspired by her most famous and controversial comics story, The Killing Joke: one that has put down the mantle of Batgirl after being disabled in a horrifying act of trauma by the Joker.” Read more

Wow, that animation looks like Claymation. I remember being blown away from the CGI in the original Toy Story when it came out as a kid. Its amazing how far technology has come. Read more

One of the weird things about Rogen’s first few roles - in Donnie Darko and Freaks and Geeks - is that he got cast as kind of a menacing dickbag. I guess he’s physically imposing and had a strikingly deep voice for a teenager? About two-thirds of the way through Freaks and Geeks it seems like they realized how sweet Read more

There was a message board, website, and community that I discovered whenever the ep aired where Tara was shot called The Essence of Amber (dedicated to Amber Benson, but the Buffy/Tara section was the most active at the time for obvious reasons). I remained active on that forum for a few years even after Buffy had Read more

I’ve rewatched Buffy a handful of times throughout the years, and really the main things that strike me as being a bit “off” in current day stuff is going to be Xander’s weird friend-zoned obsession with Buffy (and his near incel-ish revulsion of Buffy having an intimate relationship with Angel), a lot of the Spike Read more

I think the heart of the complaint with this dynamic in movies is less that it’s unrealistic and more that it’s a double standard.  You see a lot of movies where Seth Rogen is imagined to be able to get Charlize Theron and basically no movies where Melissa McCarthy gets Ryan Reynolds and that this double standard Read more

This film (or at least the marketing for it) leaned very heavily on the audience’s preexisting impression of Rogen from films like 40 Year Old Virgin to sell the whole “Beauty and the Beast” comedy angle. Read more

Yes, this. His characters often display genuine kindness, not performative, transactional kindness, like “I’m going to buy this person flowers so that they will sleep with me”. Think about his character in Funny People. He’s not nice so that he will get the girl. He can’t help but be nice, even if it means he might Read more

In my experience (massive generalizations forthcoming), women care much less about looks than men do, and care much less about looks than men think they do. Read more

Kindness is general has to be the most underrated characteristic for men and women. It’s so rare to find someone who is genuinely kind and thoughtful, and it is so attractive as a quality.

I’m kind of tired of the “he could never get a girl that hot!” complaint, frankly. I know a few schlubby doofuses who have managed to punch way above their weight class, romantically, because despite their screaming need for a Fab Five makeover, their humor gets them in, and their honesty wins them over.

The characters Seth Rogen often plays are not average. They are way above average in terms of being nice. This is a powerful attractant to smart women.

The Mandalorian always came online at 2 AM Friday morning where I live (CST), so I assume this is the same time.

Funny thing about all those “these biscuits saved my marriage” bits... There’s this thing called a ‘scroll bar’. It’s right on the side of your browser. Just grab the little dot with your mouse pointer and drag it downwards ‘til you see the ingredient list. Boom! Instant recipe, no marriage saving. Read more

The ESO staff has noticeably been remotely working from home since the start of the pandemic. But the obvious concern for the staff living in the area is the tangible threat of a major disruption to their lives most likely. I personally know many people in the DC area who have said that everything is basically locked Read more

Add to that workday productivity. I’m sure a reveal day has an above average amount of work involved. The 6th was horrible in terms of productivity since everyone was glued to news streams.
