Nobody wants to watch a banal bulletproof white man who can fly tell everybody that the world’s going to just work out fine while the world’s on fire. Contrary to popular belief, people don’t like Superman that much. People KNOW Superman. And they like the iconography of Superman. But he’s like that one meme everyone Read more

Market cap is not the same as “the amount of money the stock market has put into it(tesla)”. Market cap is the current combined valuation of all shares based on current price. But the vast majority of those shares were purchased at an earlier date/lower price, or were even given for $0 cash as equity awards to Musk Read more

Actually got the best of both worlds, because there are “halo” style straps that will adapt well with the Quest 2 now. Ordered mine last year from AliExpress and it came in about 20 days - but I think they’re showing up for faster shipping on other sites now. That very much improves the comfort and balance of the Read more

I’m glad I’m not the only one what was annoyed by this. There was another episode (or was it a JJ movie?) that showed the turbolifts liek this. It seems to imply that that ships have the living space of a small house spread out across a couple of city blocks. It doesn’t make any sense.

Yeah the cavernous turbolift ‘shafts’-if you can call them that-are eye rolling-ridiculous. I think it was another Trek website that equated them in this episode to a massive endless Blade Runner city that leads into the horizon. What happened to people like Andrew Probert that fought to make sure that the exterior Read more

I’m kinda over fighty-fighty spectacle, so my eyes go glossy and I end up paying less attention. This episode was filled with a lot of that. Read more

I could frankly give a crap about seeing Kylo or Rey - but Bo-Katan, Din or Ahsoka? I’m there.

The fact that Disney created an entire park without any sort of regard of its future is pretty emblematic of their whole approach to the Prequel Trilogy, so it doesn’t surprise me that they painted themselves into a corner with this one. Read more

Oh shit, that’d have been perfect. Diana has been laying low since WWI, but Lord brings Steve back to mess with her...and the mall montage is interrupted by low-level thugs. Read more

I know, right? Big has been the poster boy for unfortunate implications for decades now. I also keep seeing people try and argue that we never actually see Diana and Steve have sex, so it’s us being dirty perverts is the problem by assuming that. Like, we understand the language of films. When two people wake up in Read more

OMG. I completely forgot that show existed. I watch Greys Anatomy and keep on thinking I’ve seen that guy in something else. Now I remember what it was! Read more

Yeah sorry, but it’s not like Jumanji, where everything roles back to the way it was before Alan and Sarah started playing the game.   There are still consequences, even though the film tries to gloss over it at the end.

So, I saw the body swap as a plot device to explain why Trevor wasn’t completely a fish out of water having been transferred from WWI to 1984. He said something like he’d been bumbling about for a couple days looking for her and figuring out modern life. Read more

There were other ways to bring back Trevor. Including the wish just bringing him back because it’s fucking magic so the rules are what you make them.

There is no reason for the body possession to be in the script because nobody does anything with it. Steve doesn’t protest (he absolutely should/would) and Diana doesn’t seem bothered either. Read more
