Fights are for action movies what songs are for musicals and what games are to sports movies. Each one has to mean something, and advance the story. The fights in Transformers have no meaning. There is no weight to them at all. It's just good guy vs. bad guy, and then the good guy kills the bad guy in a creative… » 7/10/14 11:32pm 7/10/14 11:32pm

9 times out of ten, the exact actor picked for a part doesn't matter. They're paid to bulk up or lose weight on command, and the quality of their character depends mostly on the script and director. A great actor can take things to the next level (see: Ledger and Downey Jr.), but rarely to actors alone sink films,… » 7/05/14 4:28pm 7/05/14 4:28pm

Well, that escalated quickly. If the kid asks why two girls in a show are holding hands, you COULD go into the physical dynamics of scissoring and oral sex, or you could say, "They love each other." Kids are rather gullible, and will fall for simple things like the idea that gay people exist if you just show it to… » 6/28/14 8:30pm 6/28/14 8:30pm

American kids like a story to go with their toys. Who are these firey red-orange woman, what do they do, and do they have names? Or a base, sold separately? Do they have easily broken or losable accessories, not guns necessarily, but, say, skateboards or grappling hooks or bandoliers? How about, dare I say it,… » 6/26/14 10:36pm 6/26/14 10:36pm

Up to that point in the show, Morty was still trying to keep up the guise that his "adventure" was fun, and we, as the audience, were rooting for him, because it was still kind of funny. Once they show the attempted rape, which is something that would have been up in the first 2 minutes of a CBS crime drama, EVERYONE… » 6/26/14 8:55pm 6/26/14 8:55pm

No, no. After he and Zod knocked over bunch of buildings and killed a whole bunch of people, everyone was like, "That looked totally awesome! Well worth the death toll. Let's build a statue to commemorate the coolest punching contest this city has ever seen! The guy who won must be good, because he won! We'll… » 6/10/14 12:30pm 6/10/14 12:30pm

I think "dead religion" is a bit over-simplified. But it's a starting point, one that's easy to understand. Take it this way: Superman is a science fiction story, Batman is a crime story, Wonder Woman is a fantasy story. All of them are about individuals with incredible potential who choose to use that power for… » 5/03/14 1:00pm 5/03/14 1:00pm
