You know... as much as all the Q stuff really makes me want to cry (literally — some people I really care about are so wrapped up in that it genuinely hurts), until you mentioned it I’ve never thought about how insane it is that they all put so much faith in something that originated where it did. I guess it tracks, Read more

What was I supposed to do, welch on a BMX race? Get the BMX people involved? The Council of 12?

“Interestingly, I seem to recall this was how the DCAU Superman series handled it - the first introduction of anything related to Darkseid was a crime syndicate buying weapons from what later turned out to be Apokolips.” Yeah and this was straight from comics.

For their encore, how about HBO Max tackle The Day the Clown Cried?

Both have their origins with racist white men, so its possible

Yeah. That time when all cinemas are closed and everyone is stuck at home is the perfect moment for a judgement of how to release movies in normal times.

AMC might be able to hold the line with Universal, but if every other studio joins in, they’ll lose that game of chicken. They have to show SOMETHING. Read more

Having seeing RotJ in theaters in ‘83, I sometimes remind people that many of my peers leveled the same criticisms at Jedi as so many do towards the Sequel Trilogy- derivative of ANH, made to sell toys, bathroom humor, etc. However, that was long before the internet facilitated endless debate, and decades later it’s Read more

Also, time heals all wounds. A lot of fans hated Return of the Jedi (“a bunch of Muppets”) when it came out, but now it’s fairly beloved. The same thing is now happening with the prequels. In twenty years most people really won’t remember what it was they hated specifically about the ST.

Which means there’s scaffolding involved, and then of course the union needs to be a part of it, and... ugh. What a nightmare.

Did your dad pay you on the back during that scene and whisper “It’s okay, they are only Nazis. It’s not like human beings for hurt”.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite movie of all time. After watching The Last Crusade yesterday while at work in my big overstuffed chair (it’s huge and it’s green, you’d love it), I realized that it’s basically just a kinder, gentler knockoff of Raiders. There are so many shots and scenes in it that Spielberg Read more

Is Kinja’s shittiness at least partly intentional, to get us to refresh the page four times in order for the comments to come up?

As a child of the 80's, whose love of Yoda in no small part encouraged me to go get an actual philosophy undergraduate degree, I can say two things about George Lucas with a fair degree of certainty. First, for someone who wrote and created such a timeless story about good and evil, he’s got a really impoverished Read more

I picked up a DVD of that movie based on their enthusiasm for it also, but haven’t gotten around to watching it yet. Glad to hear they weren’t just blowing smoke.

Not sure how else to read it. Leia goes from being the leader of a Rebellion, standing up to Darth Vader and resisting Imperial truth serums, to being chained up in a bikini with a space slug. For her to be that broken means something really bad had to be done to her. Another angle is from a podcast I heard a while Read more
