  1. I was thinking about this today -- that the movie's best virtues were more subtle in nature. Wonder Woman and Black Panther had more oomph, but they also had Themiscyra and Wakanda. Vers was stuck in the world we inhabit, dealing with the constant, mundane, annoying expectations and entitlements we encounter all the time. It will be interesting to see how it holds up on rewatch.
  2. I believe she mentioned that Democrats will need well over 50% of the vote to capture at least 50% of the House. So since your vote doesn't count as much, it's actually more important for you to vote.
  3. Reading the articles about Crazy Rich Asians, the whole "Asians are unattractive" thing caught me by surprise. Sure, everyone's got their own eye, but you've never seen a handsome Asian man? 'Cause I sure have.

  5. I can see a difference between firing someone over something gross they said yesterday and firing someone over something gross they said 10 years ago. Is Gunn a better person now than he was then? I don't know. He's a better-behaved person, at least.

  12. Because they provided the technology that Scott used during CA:CW. Aiding people who violate the Sokovia Accords is a violation of the Sokovia Accords. There's a chance they could have prevailed in court (Scott stole the suit) but as mentioned above, they didn't trust the system. And Scott didn't act like he was dragged to Germany against his will; I don't know why "dragooned" is the default setting over "volunteered." I'm in the camp of liking the smaller scale movies just fine; not everyone has to save the world. And it helps with Marvel's long-running third act issue. Most of the
