    S.09 E.05: Paradise Lost?

    I have no problem putting the seat down. I live alone and do it. It's just not a thing to me. But, why does anyone sit down anywhere without looking? I know sometimes you are half sleep or whatnot but I still wouldn't just sit down without looking.

    All of this may very well be true but a lot of it is inferring many things that aren't facts. It's us as the audience filling in a lot of blanks. Which is fine. It just makes me care a lot less about them being together. It's just something just is for me. It's fine.

    S02.E17: Strictly 4 My ...

    I judge by actions and intent. If one has never done anything to betray their words then I accept their words. Which is my Bruno point.

    I know it's been widely known since the 90s that white actually spend more on rap music. It's a real thing. But, not only. That's a mass generalization. Just like all these things people get hung up about these days, it's all about context. Like some people love calling Bruno Mars a culture vulture but he has never claimed he created the style of music he does, shouts out the pioneers of the style of music he does, is always appreciative of the love black people and grew up on the music he loves. That does not a culture vulture make. People like that white girl yes julz chick (it's fine if you don't know her, you don't need to) walking around thinking it's cool to walk around with the word nigga on her shirt and trying to sound down just because she's a chick black dudes in the industry is very much a culture vulture.

    I'll give a another shot but the it's summer! there is nothing else on! stuff! doesn't fly with me anymore. There is always something on. There is always something to stream. Which is why network tv is dying. A bunch of stuff I don't need to watch. They are striving on shows that are events like the Voice or This is Us for drama but those are few and far in between. But vapid and shallow seems to be the name of the game.

    Celebrity Family Feud

    Went to look it up. Jaleel hit 191 on his game so she upped him by quite a few. But, he hit all number ones with a couple being in the low 20s. I'm sure that hurt the overall

    They won't time jump out of high school. They put him in this age to play around with high school Peter. I could see it being senior year though. If all goes well, they will want him to be still a teenager to interact with the young avengers potentials we have out there. Actually I think that would be fun. Him not being a head of THE avengers but heading up a young group of heroes. This would be down the line of course.

    197 but it was super impressive. I believe Jaleel White got around the same number. I know he got all number ones. Always cool when someone nails all the questions.

    And I would call not dealing with actually developing your core romantic relationship in any kind of real way as a flaw. It is a flaw when you are telling a story and development happens that isn't really explained. And again, for the third time, I'm cool with it as is. It's not a big deal. But, having a few scenes or moments showing people bonding or why, as characters they are into each other is too much to ask. And everything has been done here countless times before. Hero out of his element, relevant hero, crazy bad guy who feels neglected, etc. That doesn't mean trying to give some substance is a bad thing. But, I'm done addressing this. I'm just repeating myself here. If anything, this movie does make me think about who will step up and fill these empty voids. I think it will be someone we don't know or know much about. Captain Marvel and Black Panther, for example, will be great core members but I don't think either one of them would want to be the head of the avengers. They have communities they are more worried about.

    Like I said, I don't actually care either. I just don't have the investment I would have if the relationship had actual development. It's light and cute. That's fine. But, flaws are flaws. Whether or not they make or break a movie for me is something different. There isn't anything going on in the movie that doesn't make me like it.

    I will say that after watching a interview with her I see the Uma perfectly. It's the bangs that helps.

    That's one way to read it. She never said anything. This movie actually puts it into focus. Was she genuinely into him or was she trying to figure out his secret. The answer is both. I don't really care about this in broad strokes. It's just conversation. Their relationship isn't very fleshed out. I don't know how that can be argued. That's not new to comic book movies or franchises in general. As time goes on, I hope to see more interplay between and how they work as a couple. I know personality wise they balance each other out. I would just like to see it.

    As a person watching a movie telling a story, moving beyond he's cute would be appreciated. I don't need it. I'm fine with the story as is. In homecoming we spent far more time with the other girl than MJ. That even had more development. I don't even remember her establishing any sort of crush on Peter. Not saying it didn't exist. I just don't remember it happening in any major way. She liked messing with him. Which I guess is her firm of flirting. But, there wasn't much movement. In general, I always appreciate when main character romantic relationships get fleshed out beyond you are attractive. For the most part, we just see Peter being super awkward around MJ. She may like that but how should I know. As is, we haven't seem them really get to know each other. As it stands now, I have no investment in the pairing. It's cute. I'm happy for them. But, that's about it.

    People, all people, have leave this where are other heroes stuff alone. This is Peter's story. The avengers aren't going to come and save the day in every movie. Just like in the comics. Imagine the other heroes are busy with their issues and call it day on that one. I would have spent a bit more time on the romance element. I don't really care about your other elements in that regard. I don't need movies stretching for profound or busy work for side characters. On TV show, sure. Every main character should have their own arcs. But, in a movie, not everyone needs their own arc or moment to shine. And MJ did. She saved herself during the carnival and was the bravest of the team trapped in the museum. Ned had his own story in romance. He was too preoccupied. I'm sure he will be back on track with them not being far from home next time. And I like that Brad was a rival in Peters mind only. Peter, as a character, is always juggling so many things. This was one that he kind of didn't need to worry about. All he needed to do was be open to her. While I get why Peter is into MJ. He said why he was and I get it. I wish I knew why she would be into him. I know Peter is great but another movie to establish more between them would have been fine. I do think there is something to the notion that the mcu don't want to leave too many dangling threads just in case they do indeed lose him after the film deal expires. Hopefully they finalize another deal soon and spiderman can be free to just BE with no constraints.

    I mean, who else are they going to get that is as perfectly cast? Sometimes you just go with what works. On the hero thing, I think they may be treading lightly with diving into Cap because of how he changed his own legacy or wants it to be is still a mystery and Captain American in a new form may still exist. Vision and Widow were not heroes. They worked in the shadows. The public didn't know them really beyond a few sightings. I get it. We may be also seeing it the way Peter does. He's zeroing in on Tony all the time. Like on the plane. There was more to watch than the Stark story but that's where he focused. Stark was the most in your face, yes I'm a hero of them all so it kinda makes sense that he gets more headlines in death.
