    Um, wow. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-ms-justin-bieber-tom-cruise-fight-20190610-story.html?fbclid=IwAR0wS_IJWARfioLViEZhxawszaErv8WSmQ7kikJzSOCreRQxDDZndqLNJJo FWIW, I'd bet on Tom. I don't care how short he is, Bieber wouldn't stand a chance.
  2. Zombies, Tilda Swinton and Chloe Sevigny. Sounds good.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe: The Avengers, etc.

    I would point out that Civil War ends with Steve turning out to be a liar and a hypocrite for Bucky's sake, only to have Barnes fridged (literally) once he'd served his purpose, which was to give Cap something to be sad about. I think the darker Steve we see in Infinity War would have been interesting to expand on. Whether we agree with his reasoning or not, he'd betrayed those squeaky-clean ideals he was always espousing in the previous films, and that's not even getting into what his plans might have been if someone like Zemo showed up again to bring out the Winter Soldier. One of the smaller satisfying moments in Endgame was Tony all but spitting in Steve's face when the subject of reversing the Snap was first broached, but because the movies have been so obsessed with making Rogers the good guy no matter what, we don't get to see the full measure of how it affected him to be straight out called a liar and know that it's not wrong.

    Of course by that logic Larson really should be replaced. Which, unless my memory is even shittier than I thought, is exactly what the non-SJWs want.

    They were on the same side up until the point Ross outright refused to look into the Zemo matter, which is when Tony stopped returning his calls. You're not wrong about Stark getting him involved in the first place, but that just brings up the issue of Team Cap being in Lagos without any forewarning or oversight. Given Ross' general demeanor, he might have seen that as a valid excuse to stick his nose in where it wouldn't have been invited otherwise, with or without Tony saying 'hey, you want to come lecture us about collateral damage?'

    But wait, there's more! https://www.screengeek.net/2019/05/07/captain-marvel-brie-larson-replacement-petition/?fbclid=IwAR32eG6UR1DdAeZBLwn73gWYAgNqevmNvrfoIdPfff0F_r904mB0XduskHU If I was a worse person than I actually am, it'd be hilarious. As it is, it's just pissing me off, because now the other trolls are getting into it.

    Privileged enough that he's letting her be the boss in the relationship. If she's with him, what's her excuse other than he's an easy target for her? Unless it's possible to actually love him, and...well.

    She asked him like five times whose fault it would be if the cat got hurt or killed while running around loose outside, trying to get him to admit it was on him and his wife, and he just never answered her.

    As a further note, one of the complaints I often read in the People's Court forum is that Marilyn Millian is too soft on litigants and tries to play family therapist when she shouldn't. That she should be more like Judy instead of almost coddling the idiots who appear in her fake courtroom. The viewers want the 'judges' to be mean, because that's why they watch.

    Well... Since five or ten minutes before the fight started, Tony thought that Steve was at least sincere in the things he said about innocent victims, I can see why he wouldn't take anything else for granted where Rogers is concerned. Doesn't matter if they were friends or if they could even stand to be in the same room, that Steve was quite happy to use Tony's carelessness and mistakes as a club to hit him with (shades of dear old Dad, I'm sure) but would leap if not lunge to defend Bucky ("I can do this all day.") retroactively screwed with my ability to take him at his word. Of note, also: that Barnes had the mental and emotional wherewithal to acknowledge that he should be removed from the equation until such time as he was no longer dangerous, and then act on it, made me think more of him than I did of Steve. Given how poorly developed Bucky is as a character, that's an amazing feat, that even though he's not responsible at all he could admit that there was every likelihood he could be triggered again. So in a way Steve was only half-right; don't kill Barnes, but do take him out of play until it's safe. Thanks, Shuri!

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Well, good Lord, let's at least cover both sides of the issue. The worldwide Steve/Bucky fandom is strong, so strong that they pissed all over Emily VanCamp (and Hayley Atwell, who should know better, egged them on) because they don't think anyone else is good enough for Cap. Which...fine, they can feel how they want, but Sharon Carter is only the worst offender in that she and Steve kissed for five seconds and a building didn't fall on her head. That they chose to take it out on the actress isn't because they want representation or because they're more forward thinking than people who "want" Steve to be straight. Though judging by this: https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/04/19/avengers-endgame-captain-america-chris-evans-bucky-chants-peggy-carter/?fbclid=IwAR3ZXO-62seHpWi-QwMzB6t2gRNFJwN-xX1YJKlvFGP_Ue3rg4j1VDvm_hM I expect the Twitter crowd hates Atwell quite a lot right now. She "stole" their dream from them, after all, and they thought she was on their side.

    So Steve becomes John Connor, basically.

    Of course, with Carol we get some stupid "controversy" because she's wearing lipstick. Because that's logical.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    Look at it this way - Steve's been a hypocrite about a few important things before this, so it's not really new that he would suddenly decide to do a rewind and have a life with Peggy instead of moving on with his life. And really, if the Russo brothers must cave in to the trolls, better these trolls than the damn Stucky shippers, who I can assure you are writhing in Biblical anguish all over the internet.

    It also halves the Original Six, which might have been deliberate on the Russos parts given what Thanos had in mind when he hijacked 2019 Nebula's brain.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    In the scene where Natasha is doing the holo-conference, Rhodey stays online after everyone else has signed off and tells her that some "cartel guys" were found dead in Mexico and he was pretty sure Barton was responsible for it. He says something to the effect of, Do we even want to reach out to him if he's this far gone? With everything they were already dealing with, I can see how she might have wanted to put off trying to talk him down.

    A personal favorite of mine was Thanos punching Carol full in the face, and she just looks at him like, "And?" Because he had to use one of the Stones to get her off of him, removing it from the 'new' gauntlet, and I heard someone in my theater say, "Now that was smart." Heh. I'm still processing. There's a lot to unpack here, maybe even more than from Infinity War.

    I'll see your 'My. God.' and raise you a "Natasha!" *sob* Did not expect that at all.
