It’s been a couple years since I’ve seen it, but I enjoyed it at the time. I also like Megan Fox when she’s not being leered at in Transformers (her New Girl part worked well for me), and Diablo Cody’s writing style is just a style, like screwball comedy dialogue was a style or noir is a style. Juno’s tweeness and “no… Read more
Nah, I disagree with that read. I mean, I’ll never defend Snyder as a person, but I love Man of Steel, and have never agreed with the objectivist readings. MoS is an immigrant story, primarily. Clark is torn between two worlds, unsure of who he really is. His parents know that the world will reject him for his… Read more
Another great one is the character Riley in Sense8. Her dad plinking out Baba O’Reilly on his uke shows where her name came from (provided you’re not one of the many people who, understandably, think the song is called Teenage Wasteland), which is simple enough. But it becomes a brilliant reference if you know that… Read more

I’m curious to know the hierarchy of your outrage towards comedians who make controversial statements?
Yup. People and glass houses, I suppose. I guess I was at least hoping for some people to look inward and realize, “hey, maybe this isn’t such a great way to go through life and how to handle things.” Maybe even see a few articles looking to discuss the things brought up in this very letter. Nope.
But also, making shitty shock humor tweets about rape or pedophilia is not the same thing as actually participating in rape or pedophilia, and putting them on the same ethical level is dangerous. Roseanne’s racist jokes were just that-direct instances of her participating in racism. This is not that. It doesn’t work… Read more
