re: Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021, D: Watts) - S: Tom Holland

That's a great reveal - love how everyone leans in to how Holland can't keep his mouth shut :lol:

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

But here's the problem - you want a world where people don't see color, right?

That means you have to let things like James Bond's ethnicity go. It needs to happen with Superman too. And Sherlock...

Re: Functions of government discussion

In simple terms, I think the government should handle things that we need to deal with collectively. So that encompasses everything from the trash to the navy.

This extends to "the people" to...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Oh, I'm sorry - I didn't realize that HARD CORE fans think the same character who was an active spy in 1953 is also an active spy in 2022 (without aging). When Craig revealed the Aston Martin DB5 in...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Again, I'm 44 years old and a few bits of continuity aside, I've never thought each Bond was the same person. I mean, is he immortal? Apparently he was an adult man in 1953 (first publication date)...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

That's fine that Bond is a cultural touchstone in England. But is he a WHITE cultural icon? There are plenty of other races in Great Britain. Why is it so weird to suggest that someone from those...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

I'm not the biggest Bond fan in the world but remind me what part of Craig's backstory requires him to be white? Because I don't remember a thing like that.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

What is "has to be a white guy" about Daniel Craig's version of James Bond? Since he was the most recent reimagining of the character.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I've never once thought that James Bond was anything but a code name because they keep changing the actors every few years. But then the internet becomes a thing and...

Re: Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, D: Snyder) -- HBO Max Exclusive

I watch movies all the time and think certain decisions from those involved were stupid. If you'd given me $50,000 and a red pen, I would have fixed the Star Wars prequels for George. I still watched...

Re: Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, D: Snyder) -- HBO Max Exclusive

I've gone on record that I'm not a Snyder hater - I like more of his movies than I don't (Dawn of the Dead and Watchmen I downright LOVE). And this is STILL a stupid decision.

When I saw the...

Yep, "reform the police" or "reduce the police" or "hey maybe the police need more training and shouldn't be sent out to deal with every single possible situation that comes up in the world" would be...

Yeah that's not the kind of nuance that "All Lives Matter" is attempting to illustrate. But you know that.

Re: Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, D: Snyder) -- HBO Max Exclusive

A wide frame looks better on any screen that's not an IMAX. And since no one has an IMAX screen at home and everyone has a widescreen setup instead, I don't think it's being a "shithead" to point...

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Bottom line is that if someone was truly "colorblind", they wouldn't even notice James Bond's race.

Of course they would have - everyone understands that you don't say "all cancers matter" at a benefit for a specific one or "all houses matter" while firefighters are pouring water on the one that's...

Re: Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, D: Snyder) -- HBO Max Exclusive

Very true. To paraphrase Jurassic Park, Zack Snyder was so preoccupied with whether or not he could release a blockbuster superhero movie in 2021 in 4:3 that he didn't stop to think if he should.

Re: Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, D: Snyder) -- HBO Max Exclusive

Oh sure, I get it. I'll watch it in color. I just think it's hilarious that Snyder took the criticism of his bland costumes and went "I'll show them!"

Re: Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021, D: Snyder) -- HBO Max Exclusive

One of the main criticisms of Snyder's treatment of the DC heroes is how muted the costumes have been for these larger than life characters with decades of history. Apparently he's now taken this...

Re: Popular Movies You Just Donít Get

Blade Runner is interesting - I've always been pretty meh on it but I watched it recently and it's less than two hours (I can't remember what version I have...the original, I think). So it wasn't...
