The Agonizer is for all posts that don’t fit in any other category, including comic book reviews, book reports, editorials, rants, and more!
“Buying a movie ticket? Better call in sick to work. You’re gonna be on hold with three different departments, none of which seem to know the price of a ticket.”
“Unfortunately, what you often end up with is one side representing a ludicrous, straw man position either out of the laziness of the author or as a result of the author clearly choosing a side and letting that choice dictate the direction the story takes.”
“The third trade paperback for The Wicked + The Divine is out, and it’s for this trade that I will always recommend this series. This is because it contains an interactive plot twist that really messed with some fans heads.”
2015 is over, so it’s time once again to take a look back at the most popular articles of the past year.
“Does Lucas seem like a guy capable of playing a long game like having the bad guy be the comic relief for two movies before revealing himself as the ultimate evil? He didn’t even handle Palpatine’s long game well.”
“Under the guise of a genre meant to make people question power, these movies only offer a shallow illusion of doing so.”
“I forced myself to go knowing that I might regret going, but I’d regret not going, too, and the latter was preferable to the former.”
“Zack comes off as a nerd who won’t shut up for five minutes so the plot can progress. Mind you, this didn’t stop me from liking the book, but then again, I know I would do the exact same thing.”
“I there’s been a huge outcry from the public, it hasn’t been anywhere near as visible as what’s been coming directly from WWE itself.”
“When Scout finds out that Atticus is human and flawed, her reaction is much like the fans who refuse to read the book: they can’t stomach it.”
“Here are the five books I think DC is going to struggle with. Quite a few of them I actually want to see succeed, but even I’ll admit they have an uphill battle ahead of them.”
“But it is kind of sad that, even in an Elseworlds title, Bruce Wayne will always have WASP features when, in many ways, Batman would make a lot of sense as a black man.”
“At what point does going through the motions of capturing the Joker again and again while knowing he’ll escape to kill dozens or hundreds more become so ludicrous that it defies disbelief?”
“Who better to become the Richard Donner of video game movies than the guy whose Aliens is pretty much a 3-D shooter video game in movie form, before the genre came into existence?”
“All of this sounds like a lot, but it really isn’t. Most of what she outlines boils down to ‘be active and engaged in our relationship and I will love you.’”
“DC is knuckling down and trying to do this thing right: some books are getting new number ones, almost all are getting new creative teams, and a bunch of new characters are being given a chance at ongoing title success.”
“Choosing such a horrifying image as a celebration is in incredibly poor taste. It comes across as a glorification of Batgirl’s humiliation and degradation.”
“Since Image Comics recently announced the production of a second arc, I made it a point to give it a try. The verdict? I have no idea how to feel. My brain is screaming ‘status code: 400’.”
“Casting a black or Latino Spider-Man for the sake of casting a black Spider-Man may or may not be the right move.”
