Yeah, I admit I raised an eyebrow at this. Like, seriously, she's black, so she has to have a criminal past? Talk about a lack of imagination.

That or they have been working on it for a year and were worried about public reaction when they announced it. Then the recent protests came about and provided the perfect astroturf opportunity. So they took advantage of it.

On its face, no, the ride doesn’t seem racist, but it doesn’t take much digging to spot the issues. First and foremost, the ride is based on a movie that Disney, as a corporation, has been distancing itself from since the late 70s. They did this because the movie basically presents black people as being nostalgic for Read more

Yeah, it’s surprising this wasn’t done a while ago. Song of the South is a dead IP for Disney, and has been for some time. I can only assume this was already in the works, and they are only publicizing it now to capitalize on the public opinion.

I got confused when April was having her row with Mikey, but then we see her in a family photo with Leo. So, is April married to all of the Turtles then?

The EU sucked, mostly. I could never get past the first couple of Zahn books, and I hated Dark Empire, which was essentially remade as Rise of Skywalker. Read more

Anyone who had watched TNG should have fully expected Picard to save the day with a speech.  The whole ending was cliche but it was fully a TNG cliche.

See, I’m not so sure, because in a series about a Federation that’s lost its way, a protagonist undergoing a literal death and rebirth, cured of the ailment that was killing him seems like a pretty on-the-nose and intentional metaphor.

It was never supposed to be this gritty, grounded, cynical disaster that Paramount and CBS have been peddling. Read more

Is it possible that the Science Fiction community has simply gotten too cynical for Trek? Read more

I don’t think the real problem is that the creators don’t understand the philosophy of Trek. I think the real problem is that American science fiction is no longer able to be genuinely optimistic. The two main Star Trek series were made at the apotheosis of the American empire. It’s easy to imagine a bright future Read more

All the same things bothered me. But what really got me in the very first episode was the lack of any mention of Lal.

It was released as Road Warrior in the US, but at Mad Max 2 in some countries, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in others and... well you get the point.

Um, no. In Australia, and many other countries, this move was not called simply 'Road Warrior.' The real fans know their titles.

Well, if you’re going to be a stickler, “Mad Mad 2” (as it is and was known in Australia, where it was made) was called “The Road Warrior” in the US.

I'm pretty sure the film was originally called Mad Max 2, but since no one had seen Mad Max (the first one) in America, they gave it a different title in America. I think you are being a little pedantic.
