I know TV doesn’t count, but if it did, Agents of SHIELD introduced a gay (and powered) character a few seasons back. Current season introduced Marcus Benson, an older scientist who happens to be gay. They also have strong female leads, POC, and pretty much all the representation everyone is still waiting to see in…
“Congress shall make no law […] abridging the freedom of speech…”
Being outside a traditional banking system does not mean being outside a capitalist system. M-pesa is exchanged by mobile phone in many developing countries and does not require banks. I strongly suspect Libra was intended to compete in this market.
“I’m the writer-director, the movie didn’t connect with audiences, that’s on me,” — from the linked story in your quote.
How is this tech news? It’s a burger with reformulated filler. My mom used to make meat loaf by cutting in bread crumbs. That didn’t make it a “plant-based” loaf. Making a burger from beef that tastes like a beef burger is not a technological advancement, but it is quite a branding achievement. What’s next? “The cow…
Yeah, anyone who’s seen her one scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming should understand why she wouldn’t know what movie that was for. She showed up for a minute in a CGI blue room and only interacted with RDJ and Favreau. There’s no reason for her to think it wasn’t an Avengers scene.
Except there was never any tension between them. Yes, it was clearly set up as a love triangle, but Luke and Leia never fought even in the tense situation of escaping the Death Star. All the tension was between Han and Leia from the moment they met.
I don’t think there’s any contradiction between Darth being a title and Obi-Wan using it. Swap out Darth for another title, like general or captain, and the line still works. “Only a master of evil, general.” It’s no stranger than referring to Captain America as Captain or Doctor Strange as Doctor. It could also be…
I’m sure May and Peter’s crappy apartment remained empty the whole time. Half the population disappearing opened up far better living spaces than that dump. It’s the people who had nice homes reappearing to strangers sleeping in their beds.
Can I ask that we stop call him “Professor Hulk”? He’s Banner Hulk, as depicted most popularly in Marvel Superheroes Secret Wars holding up a mountain. Banner Hulk is the result of experimenting in the lab to put Bruce Banner in control of Hulk’s body, which is how he described it in Endgame. Professor Hulk was a…
The new season is set post-Snap, same as every movie going forward (not counting prequels), and they repeatedly referenced the coming of Thanos last season. They also explored time travel and alternate timelines, which seems more important now than it did at the time.
Mysterio is clearly from another dimension where Spider-villains are handsome good guys who can star in their own movies, and all high-end electronics are made by Sony.
Presumably that fight didn’t happen the first time, and Cap wasn’t accompanying the scepter, so did Pierce give up and go home before meeting Captain America? “Well, we can’t sway Stark and we can’t fight Thor. We should give up and leave before Captain America shows up.”
It surprised me because Cap hadn’t met Pierce prior to their meeting in CA: WS.
What I keep coming back to in this scene is how frightened Peter is despite the fact he is the only one there with super powers. Peter could destroy Toomes, yet Toomes is so intimidating that he can’t even move, and it totally works. Fantastic scene from Keaton and Holland.
I’d argue they’re all bad. They’re all named like they’re comic books: name of lead character = title of series. Few TV shows are named that way. I would change it up a little.
Preaching to the choir. DS9 is the only Star Trek I’ve watched in its entirety. Honestly, I can’t even say that I necessarily like Star Trek as a whole. I enjoy some of the movies and have watched some episodes of the other shows, but I loved DS9. If I had to boil it down to one character, it would be Dukat, a…
Look at why people hated it. It lacked the journey and optimism of Trek. It literally was not a trek. Situations weren’t black and white. Heroes were morally compromised. These are things people might rebel against in their youth, but accept later in life. DS9 is downright cheerful now compared to a lot of genre…
No, he can’t be blamed for crazy people existing, but he can and should be blamed for emboldening them and calling them to action.
“The insultingly low bar necessary to clear this $23 million hurdle is sure to further embolden grassroots resistance efforts in the area...” — Seems unlikely given it’s the same $23 million that started the grassroots resistance efforts in the area.
