anonymous asked:

Is Logan good?

Logan was incredible. It took managed to solve the one major flaw with super hero movies. Super heros are always depicted with this sense of grandeur. These movies are always trying to top the one before in the scope of it, making them more and more incredible, more outrageous, and consequently, less human. It makes these characters harder and harder to relate to. 

But in Logan, all of that was striped away and we were given characters that struggle, that doubt themselves, that are depressed, that are fighting for a sense of meaning, of purpose. They were real, they were human, they were raw. The acting, the cinematography, the direction, it was all incredible. Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, both world class actors, put on incredible performances. The story, being written such that there was an immense history between the characters, was reflected by their performances as both of them, having worked together in these roles for almost 2 decades, had a familiarity between them that carried an incredible amount of weight on screen. Both of them also seemed to be putting their all into their performance knowing that they may never play that role again. That sense of finality, desperation even, was so palpable that it drove the movie in way that, in my opinion, no other superhero movie has ever accomplished.

It was equal parts devastating and beautiful. It was the kind of movie that I found myself thinking about for days after I left the theater.

[[This is technically from last night but for the kick off party for emerald city comicon this year, the bird and I decided to dress as two influential comic book writers in our lives, Kelly Sue Deconnick and Matt Fraction.]]

Obikin or Obitine?

With the full disclaimer that I love our Angry Martini-Drinking Duchess with my whole heart and I love her with Obi-Wan and I will go on record as being one of those people who liked that he got a romantic backstory (AND SO HELP ME GOD I WILL PRY EVERY LAST JUICY DETAIL OUT OF THE POWERS THAT BE EVENTUALLY,) even if we were speaking in terms of strictly platonic, no-funny-business-everyone-keeps-their-pants-on Obikin, I have long felt that that relationship is the funniest, most interesting, and clearly one of the most important relationships in the entire story of Star Wars, so it’s kind of hard for me to rate Obi-Wan and Anakin below anything else.  

(This is in reply to this ask prompt!)

[Image is a nine-panel comic. Two stick-figure girls are talking. The first says, “You’re always talking about how hard life is for you, but come on–it must be really nice to not have to go to work or school.” The other girl, shocked and slightly embarrassed by this, replies, “Um, actually, no–and that’s a really offensive and insensitive comment. And…it kind of makes me feel bad…” The first girl says, “Oh, you’re just being too sensitive! You know what they say–‘Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can’t hurt you!’” The fourth panel zooms out and we see that the girls are at a table with a book in front of the second girl. She says “Hmmmmmmm,” squinting at the first girl. She squints down at her book. “Mmmmmm…” She squints back at the first girl. “Mmmmmmm–” In the seventh panel, she picks up the book and THWAP! Nails the first girl right in the face. In the next panel, the second girl is yelling under the table, “What do you say to THAT, Susan?” From under the table, the first girl (aka Susan) replies with nothing more than a feeble, “Ow.”]

Shut up, Susan.

....so, about that kiss ... is it a result of the andre talk? or is it a possible rewrite from the comics?

possible spoilers, you’ve been warned: 

so, we’ve all been supremely blessed with the latest promo from the walking dead featuring richonne in a very intimate kissing scene, as well as speculation of lots of sexy times in episode 7x12. this particular intimate moment got me wondering what what led up to this scene. 

i’ve already written a loose theory on this before, that it may be when michonne tells rick about andre - now, i’m wondering if it could also possibly be a rewrite from the comics for the “i love you” reveal.

HERE WE GO!i!i!i!i!i!

Spider-Man (PS4) 2017 E3 Gameplay

I had the honor and horror of explaining/proving today to my local comic book store owner, who is a born-and-raised Jewish dude, that the Black Widow is Jewish. I ended up making a drive home and grabbing my copy of the 83-87 run of her origin story and then going back in person to prove the point today (a week after the original argument)/sit there and watch him repeat, dumbfounded, again and again, “I thought she was Russian Orthodox or something.”

So then I had to explain that Marvel eventually retconned her into having had the Red Room rip out all her memories of life before her parents’ death and thus left her unaware of her heritage. He had a copy of the new version of her origin story. We went over it together in-store, curious, and left mutually disappointed. There’s not one hint of her original origin left other than her very Jewish patronymic still remaining part of her name.

As a Russian-descended person I find that kind of a fitting metaphor for how the Russian government has treated Russian Jews - Natasha can succeed, can be the best in her field, can be beautiful and praised for her moral fortitude, but only if she has all Jewishness forcibly removed from her. It’s sort of befitting the era in which her character would have grown up, especially if Marvel pushes forward with the idea they’ve hinted at that the Red Room’s treatments have stalled her aging and she might be nearly as old as Steve and Bucky.

Out of universe, though, please never forget that Marvel took out all the women from the Avengers except one for their cinematic adaptation initially, and the one they left, they made either atheist or secular enough to casually refer to Loki and Thor as gods. They had a chance to put the first Jewish superhero to the big screen and didn’t even consider it for a second.

Then they made the Scarlet Witch not only not Jewish but Christian in the sequel. Just to twist the knife a little deeper, they made her non-Rromani and went with a fake nationality to top it all off.

And thus I stood before a man whose job was (in part) to live and breathe Marvel and he had no idea Natasha Romanov was Jewish. This new and improved origin story that has no trace of her Jewish roots (in freaking Novosibirsk where there’s a large Jewish quarter of the city, are you kidding me with this Marvel) comes during the same year Marvel published a storyline headed by writer Nick Spencer where Captain America was a Nazi/HYDRA agent all along, a storyline that only got canceled because the fan protests and outcry was so great that between the petitions, boycotts and actual Marvel actors like Clark Gregg (who is Jewish and who Nick Spencer sent the issue personally) publicly stating disgust with it that Marvel realized they weren’t going to be able to sell overt antisemitism. Covert antisemitism, though, we’re still buying - the Iron Man anti-villain/anti-heroine The Mad Thinker/Rhona Clytemnestra Cohen had her surname changed to have always been Burchill and her backstory retconned into her family being the victims of ‘a criminal car bombing’. Not ‘an antisemitic car bombing motivated by the fact my mother was a brilliant Jewish scientist whose coworkers had it out for her’. Just ‘a criminal car bombing’. I have seen all of three people complain about that even though it takes her motivations as a Jewish woman who hates that superheroes don’t save or stand for people like her and turns her into another generic supervillain.

I see what you’re doing, Marvel. There’s a reason I go out of my way to buy my comics from a place that will let me leaf through comics before purchasing them. If you want to keep going down this path, please just be aware that one day, kids will be shown that Captain America panel of him saying ‘Hail HYDRA’ in history class as they learn about the 2016 antisemitic upswing. You are made of the same stuff videos labeled ‘crazy propaganda cartoons’ on YouTube are.

(And yes I know one person’s rants are another person’s no big deal but I am not merely out of fucks to give, I am deeply, deeply in the red right now.)

when I got time I wanna revisit an old idea that Stanley has his own journal.(here)

Ford and the twins discovering the journal and with Stan’s memory loss, not rememebering writing it. They try to help figure out the mysteries of what happened during Stan’s 30 year period in GF ( finding old friends? old enemies?! deep dark secrets? it’s a mystery).
