    I'd still love to see live action Cindy Moon as soon as possible, tbh. But, also, Sony's animated Spider-Verse seems like the kinda place where you can know for sure a character will be done right.
  3. I don't want to recount how many times the MCU has disappointed me, but like, the moment I saw they were going with Peter Parker instead of Miles Morales, as much as I ended up loving Tom Holland, I was like, okay, we're not getting a Silk movie any time soon.

    Never get tired of thinking about how good this movie was. I really wanna believe Lexi will someday get another film opportunity that's she's comfortable taking, and then get the movie career she deserves.

  6. Hey! Look at all these Asians nominated for Golden Globes

    That's so mind boggling. Yeah, systemic racism isn't a thing, all awards shows are based purely on meritocracy. Gtfoh.

  12. He's the same guy as the Stormtrooper Finn gets in a fight with in TFA! Always about to beat the good guy until he gets shot haha
  13. Just saw The Favourite, which reminded me...

    I had this thought the other day, why am I still mad at ScarJo and JLaw but not at Emma Stone?

    From comments she made after the backlash, it seemed like Emma learned something. And also, how could you not love her after La La Land? Ugh.

    After the whole GitS fiasco, ScarJo almost took a trans role, like wtf did you not learn anything at all?

    I haven't really seen JLaw anything that would win me back, and also, her whole disrespecting culture IRL is a bit more egregious than taking on a role not meant for her, IMO.

    With Tilda it's a whole nother story. I never liked her to begin with. I hate that Suspiria looks right up my alley.

    Love Awkwafina. She was great in Crazy Rich Asians & Oceans 8.

    His new movie with Bryan Cranston looks pretty cringe worthy.

    This is definitely the worst choice in a role he’s made maybe ever. I just saw him kill it in Network and then got an ad for it that night on YouTube and it was very surreal. The whole thing looks so ill-advised and terrible, and that is a bad take.

    Did Sam Claflin get any specific pushback when Me Before You came out or was that dumpster fire blamed on everyone else involved equally? I don’t remember ever reading a quote from him on it but I’m sure Cranston’s fame is playing a big part in him being held accountable. The full quotes in the article are even more disappointing.
