“A satire of comic books seems like a surefire concept, and they’ve assembled a great cast here, but unfortunately the script and the direction rob them of all their comedic powers.”What’s the problem with “Anaconda”?
“Why is it so gross and shameful for Nicki Minaj to write a song about the unprecedented awesomeness of her ass?”We are not special: The nerd’s appeal to pity
“The first step in escaping this persecution complex is realizing that we were not the only ones suffering. And no, our suffering wasn’t worse or somehow more important than others.”Marvel’s cinematic villain problem
