  1. I'm not explaining anything to him except that not everyone thinks the same way he does about things. If you re going to say a filmmaker made a racist scene you are saying he had intent to make it that way. I don't see any intent. That is all I'm saying. Are we not allowed to have disagreements here? This could lead to a nice discussion if everyone can be adults and start reading things into it that aren't there. Apparently we can't.
  2. I could see it being racist if the guy wearing a hoodie gunning down people was black, but it goes against the stereotype so it isn't. The whole point of the movie was a guy taking revenge on crime because of what happened to his family. He didn't target the guy because he was black. He was a criminal that hurt people. That doesn't mean he needed to die, but that is the question this movie is asking asking vigilantes. He kills a lot of white people in the movie but this one scene is bad because the person he killed was black and in a black neighborhood? Sometimes a movie scene is just a movie scene.
  3. I don't see how it is racist. He is in a neighborhood that is full of poverty and crime so they took advantage of the drug dealer getting killed by stealing the drugs. It says more about poverty than race.
  4. The Swamp Thing reviews are out, and they are overwhelmingly positive.
  5. Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: It's a lot better than I was expecting. It's got some real funny moments. I especially liked the gag with Poison Ivy. There are two things that bugged me about it though. I hated Robin's voice. It just irritated me for some reason. The second is something I had to work to get past in other DC shows and they brought it to a new level here. How are we supposed to pronounce Ra's Al Ghul? I don't really care which way we decide on but can we just pick one please? It is pronounced differently in this movie depending on who says it. Robin says RAISH while everyone else says ROZ.
  6. I liked it. I think it's the best of the season so far.
  7. I'm intrigued, but I still don't think it needed to be made.
  8. They might as well rewrite and film it again at this point.
  9. So Far From Home is the end of phase 3 and we don't even have dates for the next movies yet. This feels weird.
  10. I think it looks like any other kid's movie. I don't know why people are so upset about it. It's freakin Sonic The Hedgehog. There isn't a lot of lore to go off of like there is for Pokemon. It wasn't a good fit for a theatrical release in the first place.
  11. Sony is developing a bunch of TV projects for their Marvel characters made by the guys that made Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse.
  12. The movie has already passed a billion dollars worldwide on opening weekend. This is the movie event of this generation.
  13. That is some terrible CGI on that motorcycle slide. They obviously spent all of their money on the young Will effects.
  14. So I finally decided to watch Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I didn't like the first couple episodes but I got into it after the first story wrapped up and they moved on. I have to say, Sabrina is kind of an asshole and I wasn't expecting that. Almost every crisis is her fault because she does things out of selfishness disguised as love for her friends.
  15. DC Universe scales back 'Swamp Thing' over 'creative differences' Warner Brothers is already fucking it up. I wish DC could get away from them.
  16. Someone leaked a bunch of footage from Endgame and it's being spoiled by assholes all over the place. Be careful.
  17. The movies themselves aren't the problem for me. It's the marketing. When you go to the grocery store and see multiple Star Wars themed displays for products like canned soup and oranges it's a little much. Their marketing team needs to pull back some.
  18. Not gonna lie. I almost cried. Also: Star Wars Movies Will Take a Break After Episode IX, Disney Says
  19. Disney Plus is launching November 12th at 6.99 a month or 69.99 a year. That is pretty much right where I expect the price to be to compete with Netflix out of the gate. He worded it as launching with that price, so don't expect it to stay there. This is to jumpstart memberships.
  20. I've never been a Kofi fan but he deserves this. He's been working his ass off for over a decade and is in the most popular family friendly gimmick in the company.
  21. Non fans of the comic were probably pretty confused by some of of it. Particularly the third act and the after credit scene.
  22. I don't understand. If you want to distance yourself from the first one and even refer to it as a reboot, why would you bring back a lot of the cast and characters?
