but thats just because of nostalgia i think

i dont disagree with you that story wise its probably not the best idea to do han solo's origin story however i do disagree with your statement that nobody wants it. i think A LOT of people want it, tons of people are excited for this movie simply because han solo (and chewy and lando etc) and im sure it will probably sell a ton of tickets. but i dont think it will perform very high in reviews

thats the same argument people use to justify the transformers movies though, isnt it?

transformers ALWAYS sells well. always. every time. even though they shit out the exact same garbage movie again and again. but are people really crazy about wanting those? i dont see anyone talking about how they can’t wait for the new transformers flick. it just sells well because of young boys who want to see shit explode during summer. in the han solo movie’s case, it would just sell well because it’s riding on nostalgia and because people think “oh look mom its a stam wams movie lets go see it!”

i’m tired of hollywood beating nostalgia horses to death and while i don’t completely oppose to a new star wars movie every year (i love this franchise please dont look at me), i just don’t want to see it riding solely on nostalgia, on old characters constantly returning and being the center of attention.

tfa was good because none of the pre established characters were the focus of the movie. we’ve already SEEN those. it’s time to move the fuck on

I’m not much of a writer but I’ve been brewing a fanfic in my noggin for sometime mostly about missions for team 7 ft working w Taka now to restore the council/orphanages being opened/hospitals and schools for medicine and the arts and wanted ideas for how the characters develop in your heads in regards to not just romantic relationships but how you’d envision the interactions. of course mutual sns pining because I’m trash.

This is an entirely self indulgent // gimme all ur nostalgia and wishes so I can blabber to myself

what's with the bill nye talk

bill nye is the host of a new netflix show. its…. not what you would expect or hope from bill nye to put it lightly

i cant speak for everything about the show because i cant bring myself to watch too much of it but what i have seen comes off as really out of touch trying to appeal to a sense of nostalgia as well as transparently push an agenda

the biggest thing people are tearing into is this song about sex/gender/sexuality thats just really really BAD

in general its a waste of an opportunity to actually teach people about gender and how  its not as much of a binary as most think and that theres more to it and everything because you end up alienating everyone with stuff like that

homonum replied to your posthomonum replied to your post: Random question, but…

its just that the batman and superman youre talking about isnt the same one they are. batman “has developed” into someone who doesn’t kill or use guns and supposedly superman is the same way while ww character didnt develop those morals. I dont agree with this take but thats the logic of it or at least the batman/superman that they know doesn’t kill because thats what they grew up on and the ww does kill because this is the one that they now know

I see your point, but I just don’t think you can hide behind childhood nostalgia too much, like even if you only know ww as a killer, if it’s pointed out to you that she wasn’t originally but was changed into one over time then you should be able to understand Zack Snyder did a similar thing with sm and recognize it as a valid interpretation of the character.

  • Matt: There are certain games in my life that when I play them, it makes me feel like I want to cry. Not because I'm sad, but because it strikes this weird nostalgia cord that's the type of nostalgia that just makes you wish you could go back there. And you feel it again when you play those games.
  • Ryan: I feel like it's almost a sad thing because it’s like I know for a fact I enjoyed games more when I was a kid. And I still love them. I love them right now, but I know I had this other kind of amusement and adoration for them when I was younger and I think it’s because it's like all I did. It's like I would come home from school, and I would play video games or I'd play split screen video games with my friends and when you're younger, you don't have all this shit that you've been through or shit that you know that you're going to have to go through because you're not so fucking cynical.

I just don't understand how some people can rate this anime with a 10. Different tastes in anime aside, do you think it deserves it?(fast-paced+bad directing+bad animation+forgetful and useless side characters aka sailor senshi) They say the Crystal haters are the ones with the 'nostalgia goggles' when they are the ones who can't even judge it correctly just because it's Sailor Moon. "I love sailor moon and everything involved with it! That's a true fan!" Sounds pretty much nostalgia talk to me.

It’s funny how the pride side says that we are the ones with the nostalgia googles on when they’re the ones forcing themselves to like it and defend it just because it’s Sailor Moon.

If anything, the nostalgia googles only serve us to keep sticking with this mess of a show, because let’s be real, if Crystal wasn’t Sailor Moon none of us would be watching.

So yeah, the fact it’s Sailor Moon it’s the reason we’re sticking with it not the reason we’re not liking it.

We don’t like it because it’s a really bad made anime and it’s giving the franchise a bad name.
