Stranger Things Season 2

Ah! I forgot about that! The homoerotic attitude towards Steve was maybe the most interesting Billy was in the entire show! Thought that was going to turn into something.

Justice League is....

... fine? I guess? I dunno. I thought it was pretty drab and boring, mixing the worst attributes of Zack Snyder with the worst attributes of Joss Whedon. But, it also wasn't the jumbled hunk of garbage that Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, or Suicide Squad were. (If you enjoy any of those, great! B

Stranger Things Season 2

That's probably the most accurate description of it: set up for the next season primarily.

The thing about the demidogs is this:

If season one were Alien, then season two was going to be Aliens. Get it? Like one of their favorite sequels that was in the '80s! They even cast Paul Reiser! GET IT

Punisher Discussion Thread

Not gonna lie: I can't bring myself to watch it. Partly because I've found the last few Marvel Netflix shows to be boring slogs (I still can't get beyond the first episode of the Defenders), partly because - as a character - I don't really find Punisher that appealing as a solo title. (I say this, b

ITT: current favorite lyrics

It's a very slight modification to a word that no person is supposed to ever say yet apparently it's completely different and okay to say


It's also a variation that's been used as a cultural effort to take ownership of a word that has a long been used to take away their humanity.

Thor Ragnarok

The problem, though, is that we haven't seen any real consequence of being "public enemy number one" after Civil War yet. That was followed up with Dr. Strange, of which Civil War had no impact on that. That was then followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which Civil War had no impact on. That

Thor Ragnarok

Was it that it was too jokey, or, not enough Ragnarok, or something else?



Something I was actually just thinking about, that I didn't really realize initially with my first impressions, but the more I think about the film:

Comic books

Well, some of it requires a fair amount of understanding of the historical, cultural, and political context of when it was written (as many pieces of art do).

For me, the biggest thing about all of Alan Moore's works is the depth and structure of his writing. There's usually a lot going on in a

Comic books

Well, if you think comics are overstimulating, Alan Moore is probably not a good writer to follow! I tend to agree with the general consensus that Watchmen is one of the best comics of all time, but that book is stacked. There's sooo much to it, which is how Moore generally writes. The same thing is

Comic books

Figured I'd make a general post about comic books. Wondered if anyone read them regularly, either a somewhat frequent picking up trade paperback collections, or through weekly pull lists. (I have a weekly pull list, although I pick it up once a month because my comic shop is 45 minutes away now sinc

"Celebrities" you'd like to meet one day

Yeah, I think for me, Lin-Manuel Miranda is gonna be on that list. (Celebrities that are clearly nerds about the same things I am will generally make my list.) I'd geek out pretty hard meeting Chris Evans, too. Then maybe the most random mixture of people: Ta-Nehisi Coates, Maria Bamford, the McElr

Thor Ragnarok

Yeeeeah...I know. I'm not looking forward to him passing, but his cameos get more disruptive by the feature it seems. I started hating them when they started really forcing them.


I forgot to mention how much I appreciated that there was only, like, one scene on Earth. Everything else was on As

Thor Ragnarok

All right. I wasn't gonna go on the opening weekend, but I had spare time tonight. Figured I'd get out of the house.

Kinda just throwing out thoughts at random here:

- Initially I had mixed feelings because I still don't really like a Thor that jokes...but the jokes were actually really good

Stranger Things Season 2

I feel like we maybe watch different stuff if you think Stranger Things tends to avoid cliches. To me, the fact that its so derivative of everything they loved in the '80s has also meant they lean in hard on all of the cliches of those films. Both seasons have done it. Season 2 is just a lot worse a

I mean, that's what they wound up using it for, but it was very contrived and took an obnoxious amount of time to have that one quasi-Luke on Dagobah sequence.

Stranger Things Season 2

Yeah. I agree. The central characters and cast are still the draw of the show. Hopper was especially good this year, I thought. I still think I would have preferred an anthology-style show, and it moved around from place to place to see different stories of how the Upside Down is maybe impacting th
