A tribute to the legend that is Nicolas Cage, who has produced some unbelievable cinematic crap over the years but always delivers a laugh! Clips from The WIcker Man, Snake Eyes, Leaving Las Vegas, Bad Lieutenant, The Rock, Face/Off, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Gone in 60 Seconds, Matchstick Men, Knowing, Vampire’s Kiss and National Treasure 2. NO copyright infringement intended this is for fun an enjoyment. Video taken from my DVD’s so technically i own it.
Why cant Marvel fans and DC fans just get along!? I’m a huuuge Marvel fan! I prefer Marvel to DC…. But, guess what!? That doesn’t mean I don’t like DC too! I saw a great movie this weekend. Went to see it twice even. Wonder Woman was a fantastic movie! I freaking loved it. But I see all this hate tossed between these two fandoms that I love and it just makes me sad.
People dismissing Wonder Woman just cause it’s DC. And people dismissing the incredibly strong women of Marvel just because their characters are on tv and not the big screen. I love the shit out of Captain America, so, I can’t tell you how happy I was to see that Chris Evans, the male lead of a competing franchise, congratulate WW for the success at the box office this weekend. But then I scroll down to see a bunch of wounded Marvel fanboys all upset that he would even dare mention DC. I also saw a post about Marvel not knowing what women are. I have five words for you people, Agents of SHIELD, Jessica Jones. Watch those and try telling me marvel doesn’t have strong female role models.
Like, I get that the two franchises are in competion with each other, and there’s nothing wrong with a healthy debate over which a fan prefers, it helps to sell more comics and tickets to the movies that way. But stop slamming others fandom, everybody derives pleasure from what they choose to watch/read, everyone connects with different characters for different reasons, so stop shaming people for which characters they enjoy, cause for all anyone knows that character helped them get through something in their life, and they shouldn’t be made to feel like shit for liking said character. If you don’t like it don’t watch it, but stop slamming it. There’s already so much negativity in the world, why waste time and energy putting more out there. Instead, how about you spread the love for what you do like over the hate over what you don’t… Life is too short to waste your energy on hate…
My aunt used to write a music review coulum for a local paper back in the late 80s and early 90s and i have some of them saved, and in one, a fan asked why she “always had possitive reviews, wasnt there music she didnt like?” To which she responed “of course there is, but i have such a limited space in the paper to write, that i’d rather be promoting the good stuff, the people i want to succeed, rather than wasting the space on promotion for stuff I didnt enjoy”. And I’ve carried that message with me throughout my life. Positivity. And no, it doesn’t always work, sometimes you can’t help but get swept up in all the negative around you… but it doesn’t hurt to try.
Maybe since we don’t really have a limited space anymore, with the internet, and we can post as much as we want as often as we want, the idea is lost, that your space is limited, but that doesn’t make it any less precious. It’s yours, it represents YOU, who YOU are. So do you want people to see what you love? Or what you hate?
Anyway, that’s just my two cents, and if you’re still with me by the end of this, thanks for taking the time to read it. Oh, and I’m not just looking at you Marvel and DC fans. I’m looking at you too, Star Trek and Star Wars fans. There’s a lot scarier shit out there then whether someone likes the same shit you do. Take what you will from my crazy ass and in the mean time, try to spread some love!
I tense, expecting an explosion. Instead, the blue-tinged
lightning hits a sudden arc of shimmering water, running across the
liquid but not through. It veins and flashes, almost blinding, but
disappears in an instant, leaving only the watery shield. Benaeath it,
Maven, Evangeline, and even the sentinels crouch, hands over their
heads. Only Iris is left standing. The water pools around her,
curling and twisting like one of Larentia’s snakes. It grows with every
second, leaching so quickly I taste the air drying on my tongue. Iris
wastes no time, tearing off her veil. Dimly, I hope it doesn’t rain. I
don’t want to know what Iris can do with rain.
- King’s Cage pp. 292
Iris Cygnet, Queen of Norta, Badass Bride and allowed to drown me in my own tears, uses water against lightning and saves their Silver asses even without a pool at hand while her groom and his bodyguards grovel in fear. Iris has to be featured large in RQ 4 or I will riot.
Hmm, I could do this endlessly, of course. I love Avatar and I’m still not over the fact that Iris actually is part First Nations, thus looking like the Avatar waterbenders.
