  1. If Disney signed a contract stating that the initial release of Black Widow would be theater exclusive, then they are the assholes, end of story.  What I got from this story was that Disney needed to change the release and instead of renegading so that they could do that legally, they just shrugged and did what they wanted and told her to go kick rocks.  

    This could also be a hugely inaccurate take on the situation.

  2. Everyone knows Lois is Superman's contact, and that her dad is a highly visible General, they probably just assume she lets them use her place to meet up for stuff.  

     

    I am more concerned about what happens when Jordan's changing body stops responding to his anxiety medication.

  3. I don't hate Michael, but I also don't think that characters such as him, Robin, Maxie or any of the other "legacies" are any more valuable or more deserving of story or POV or winning than any others.  Though with Michael I see it less as "legacy" and more as "Corinthos" that seems to make him untouchable.  Which is gross.

     

    I brought it up because this is not the first time that I have heard complaints about "legacy" characters deserving more or better or whatever.  I just don't see it as a thing that should set a character above the rest.

  4. I'm sorry guys but.... I could care less about "legacy" characters somehow "deserving" anything.... ever.  I like a character because I like them, and I don't care if they were born on screen or just showed up yesterday.  Whoever that asshole was that was ok with Chase being shit on because he isn't a "legacy" can go kick rocks.

  5. I find the idea of people hunting up a person's social media to figure out their ethnic identity really creepy.  I supremely, deeply, hate the fact that it mattered whether a contestant on the Bachelor was partly Asian, biologically. 

    Also, biology is not the be all end all of ethnic identity.  People identify with the heritage that they identify with for many reasons.  I know someone who is second generation Mexican American on her father's side technically, but does not identify with that culture at all because she was raised in a white household her entire life.  She speaks no Spanish, has no ties to the community, and hasn't even told her children that much about it, because that's not her culture.  But you would not believe the way people will approach her at her job and expect her to translate for them, and then get offended that she can't.  

    I really feel for people who are pushed into an identity, or are shamed for how they identify.  

     

    Also, I have admitted this elsewhere.  I had no idea at all that Megan Markle  was biracial until it became a "thing" when she and Harry got together.  I did watch Suits, I just didn't notice.  I know it's a cliché stupid white people thing to just not "see" race, but in my case it's more about just not looking at the TV screen that much since I'm legally blind anyway and mostly listen.  Race really isn't that obvious to me most of the time.

  6. Teenagers will give you grey hair and a drinking problem.  I feel for Angelina's mom, but still find it totally sus (hey, I used a term those kids online use, go me! :) ).  I find the Pitt/Lewis thing creepy too.  Frankly they both have problematic pasts, but as long as they are being good parents, then I don't think it matters.

     

    Has Ellie Kemper said anything about her pageant issue yet?  I don't think she has much of anything to apologize for, but I do wonder what she will say.

  7. I'm fine with that.  Him resembling Franco will only piss me off further that the character is dead.  Or at least that he died in such a stupid and pointless way, since Peter is never going away.

     

    And to think I liked Peter until fairly recently.

  8. I like that Karen tried to be the voice of reason, but that was undercut by the fact that SHE was the one saying that they should file to adopt Nia, and HEN was the one who knew that wasn't something that they could do.  The flipped roles just confuses me.

  9. I watched that Lindsey Ellis video and I almost 100 percent agree with her about how stupid this all is, and I appreciate the fact that she did appologize for the things that she has said and done that were awful on the face of them.

    then she said "CinemaSins brain poisoning" about similarity being bad and I got quite offended.  Cancel LE!!!  How dare she  

    (that is a joke, to be clear.  It did make me to a bit of a record scratch and rewind for a sec.)

    This entire situation is while I hate Social Media.

     

    AND... the tweet that started this was not only true (and obviously so) but not problematic at all.  I didn't even know who she was and I was angry at these people on her behalf.  So, gratz Twitter assholes, you probably got the woman followers and subscribers.

  10. They may have to recast they younger two if they are going to do 7 and 8 because they do need to be older by quite a few years.  More than the passage of time in production may take.
