Action Comics #311: When Supergirl almost banged her horse
“If this isn’t an incredibly messed up metaphor for child grooming (with an added icky layer of pseudo-bestiality), I don’t know what is.”Predators (2010)
“The hunted are mostly one-dimensional, but the hunters are shown in all their glory and look fearsome as they track their prey.”Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
“Director Doug Liman channels Harold Ramis, albeit taking things in a very different direction (less Andie MacDowell, more Alien MindControl).”Rat Queens, domestic violence, and death of the author
“In the age of the internet, where your greatest shame will live on eternally, it’s easier than ever to discover that people you admire are flawed human beings.”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.”Inglourious Basterds (2009)
“It’s hard to fault a film for not being what you want it to be, but one can’t help but wonder what would happen if Tarantino treated his material with a little more maturity or respect.”
