  1. Well that was unexpected. I was so sure it was going to be Sophie in bed with Kevin and it turns out to be Kate's friend! Yikes. Sophie's mom was cool, even if she was a bit of a flake. Though when she told Kevin the ring had a story I was all "of course." I am dreading what's going to happen with Kate and Toby.
  2. It all boils down to men feeling entitled to decide when and how women should have sex, doesn't it. If we don't want to, we're prudes and teases. If we want to, we are sluts. I can't help being reminded of how Whedon used Buffy's sex life in the negative sense. Angel loses his soul after they have sex? Buffy should have stayed a virgin, all the death and destruction is on her! Even though Giles (bless him) told her it wasn't true, Xander was more than happy to throw it in her face and make it clear she was too passionate and hormonal to be trusted where Angel was concerned. Gets wooed and screwed by Parker? Buffy should have been smarter! She should have known he was a dog! She's a needy pathetic idiot for feeling so hurt! Turns away from Rikey in her sleep post coitus? Buffy is a terrible girlfriend to a nice normal boy! How dare she not make Riley feel needed and not want to cuddle with him every second? No wonder he has to fool around with vampires! Has sex with Spike? Oh Buffy is just a trainwreck! Fuck you, Whedon.
  3. Finally saw this on HBO and yay none of the dogs or horses died! I did appreciate Halle going apeshit on the guys that shot her dog, bulletproof doggy vest be damned. John seriously needs to give that wonderful pit bull a name. I loved how he jumped on him when he returned to the hotel. Oh Winston, you made a HUGE mistake: you shot John and didn't aim for the head. Unless this will be part of some bigger doublecross you're fucked. Can't wait for Chapter Four!
  4. It is one of the great ironies of life that the best TV speech about consent came from A Different World, which was produced by Bill Cosby. But it was still a pretty good show and I'm pretty sure he wasn't one of the writers. This moment, among many others, is why A Different World was one of the best shows ever:
  5. Me too. I'm still glad Rami won last year because I did love BR, but that shouldn't have stopped Rocketman and Taron from getting more nominations! Musical biopics get nominated all the time!
  6. The guy in "Carrier" was a monster but his useless parents were worse. They knew what he'd done and did nothing to stop him, wouldn't cooperate with the DA, risking more lives because they couldn't stand the thought of their son hating them. Fuck them. Anyone who infects women with AIDS on purpose is an irredeemable monster. I hope he suffered to his last breath.
  7. April 17 is too long. I need this movie NOW.
  8. This just makes me want to watch the trailer for Promising Young Woman again...
  9. Taron Egerton was robbed. This moment alone in the movie should have gotten him a fucking nomination.
  10. I agree @Trini Rapunzel is being way too nice where Cassandra is concerned. She was too nice with Varian too, but at least Varian owned up to his crap and made proper amends. Though I do kind of wish that MoonCassandra was a little meaner with him as her hostage. The last time she saw him he tried to kill her. I guess she's ignoring that the same way she's ignoring all Gothel's evil deeds. And BTW, Rapunzel didn't push Gothel out the window, she fell out when she was freaking out about how old she was getting with the destruction of the magic hair. While it;s true Pascal tripped her, she also crumbled into dust before she ever hit the ground because SHE WAS THAT OLD. So GFY Cassandra.
  11. Yeah. Rereading the statement it was a the same old "I'm sorry that she saw it as rape even though I thought it was consensual sex" nonapology. Which is even worse. Reading those details of why the charges were dropped just makes me angrier. Same old slutshaming tactics to drop the charges. Does it really matter if she had sex with someone else afterwards? The only thing that matters is if she consented to Kobe Bryant. If she didn't then its rape, case closed. I've at least seen a few stories this morning that talk about him and his "complicated legacy". Which is at least more honest than glorifying him completely.
  12. I think it's easy for people to gloss over what Kobe Bryant did because it was only one, whereas with the likes of R. Kelly and Bill Cosby there were countless accusations from women that it got to the point where people couldn't ignore it anymore. Plus there's the whole "we need to protect our own" mentality that enabled Kelly, Cosby, and even OJ Simpson. It's horrible but it's true. Hell there are people that still defend Cosby and Kelly, even after everything. It is possible to be respectful to the dead without glorifying them or ignoring the terrible things they did. And it's infuriating how nobody seems to even be attempting to say something like that in regards to Kobe Bryant -- especially when he admitted it was rape. But I guess even in the MeToo era, everyone still has their own blind spots.
  13. That's horrible about his daughter. 13 is way too young. Yeah, Kobe wasn't acquitted because the victim dropped the charges and that's not the same thing. Even if it was., well R Kelly was "acquitted" at his first trial too. I feel bad about bringing this up when he and his daughter have just died but we shouldn't pretend it didn't happen either.
