Has anyone taken to calling John Walker the Acting Cap or have we already memory holed that feature of the Trump era?
John Walker, the only Captain America to be endorsed by the National Border Patrol Council.
John Walker has his own coffee brand.

Okay. So to understand fully how silly Johns was being, here's a spoiler alert for this short-lived show:

Superman's grandfather finds out he also had another son in General Zod.

Here's General Zod in the show:
Anyway, probably could have built a lasting audience for your show if you gave them a fresh reason to be interested beyond yet another Superman show where no one in blue tights ever shows up!
Johns written a lot of great stuff over the years. JSA, Green Lantern, Shazam, Stargirl, etc.

It is insanity to think that's a skillset that readily translates to, basically, human resources.

WARNER BROS: here's a 4-hour Justice League.

Me: Stop over-indulging directors, get better editors.

WARNER BROS: Here's Godzilla v Kong in under 120 minutes.

Me: no not like that
Initial verdict: humans continue to be appropriately useless, the actual fights live up to the hype especially Round 2, with a fun new Conan-inspired take on the Kong story.

Needed another half hour, more big G and Hollow Earth, ending feels focus-grouped.
There is only one kaiju movie where puny humans have any right to be the main characters.

Wow, weird how his fantasy tracks exactly with what Roland Bourgeois was telling himself and others as he shot Black people fleeing post-Katrina New Orleans. huffpost.com/entry/roland-b…
But no I think it's great that after losing John McCain that Lindsey Graham found a new best friend in the form of a yellowing, coffee ringed Ron Paul newsletter.
They are objectively pro-climate change as a rapture backup plan

Once again. So absolutely thrilled he can't tweet.
Five people fucking died. Cops got stabbed, crushed, maced, eyes gouged. A wannabe bomber is still on the loose. Among the recent arrests are a Trump appointee, a Neo-Nazi with a security clearance (and a Hitler stache!), plus a CIA contractor who speared a cop with a metal pole.
All of them spurred to throw their lives away committing obvious felonies because Trump told them he'd be marching with them.

Or, hear me out, you could just ask even a single question about the thing still killing a thousand Americans a day.
Take even one L. Try it.
I'd absolutely be saying this same thing if Trump were Prez. Like, why the hell wouldn't I?

Total bullshit. Tons of people, self included, didn't buy the case Bush was making about nukes, anthrax, mobile biolabs, ties to 9/11. They pushed those flimsy, fraudulent claims so people would buy idea that decade-long strategy of sanctions, DMZs, inspections was insufficient.
'everyone thought he had WMD' was the copout Karl Rove came up with once it was clear none would be found. No one but them was said Saddam was training Al Qaeda. No one but them said Mohammed Atta was an Iraqi spy. No one but them said Saddam had drones to spray the East Coast.
Most people thought Saddam had some chemical weapons stores leftover from the 80s (and he kinda did!) The Bush admin told the world Saddam was an evil genius who had a high-tech, totally covert Manhattan project that was going to make Osama Bin Laden a nuclear power.

Watching the cut that dare not speak its name in installments.

So far it seems the principle contributions Wh3don made to the theatrical release were to cut out a lot of black & asian actors (including some playing major DC characters!) and find pervier ways to film Gal Gadot.
This whole endeavor... from mediocre, slapdash theatrical releases to overlong but otherwise satisfying director's cuts... has been a lesson that the real heroes of Hollywood are competent editors, not indulgent auteurs.
James Wan absolutely fixed Aquaman, though. 'Just let him speak underwater, it's fine!'

"names match" means literally nothing. If they were the actual people, they'd be loudly bragging that they'd caught them. Not quietly telling congress to then leak on background to frigging Axios.
International terrorist groups like ISIS don't bother with stuff like this. They recruit off the internet. They want people who already have citizenship who can use those rights and privileges to get guns, bank accounts and passports.
Indeed the most egregious recent case of a foreign terror suspect crossing illegally into the United States was a Neo-Nazi who was smuggled across the CANADIAN border. winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/fbi-arrest-for…

few things enrage me quite like people who get mad when the US blows up an empty weapons cache in Syria and never when Assad blows up a full hospital.
For a decade I watched helplessly as a dictator butchered his whole country on Youtube. Sniped, shelled, bombed, starved, tortured, gassed. 100s of 1000s dead.

I absolutely do not fucking care if a couple of his ally's arms dumps in the middle of a fucking desert got scratched.
Literally you're more mad about it than Assad or Iran or any Syrian is. Shut the fuck up.

he thought he could slightly change his hair and put on glasses and no one would see him fly away like a douchebag Clark Kent lolololololol
Literally the only appropriate reaction here is to laugh your shivering ass off because he'd have been just as useless if he tried to be a public servant.

Who was the last truly memorable movie villain that was unquestionably the villain, in no way a tragic anti-hero, and why is the correct answer Immortan Joe?
Could make a case for Hans Landa, but that movie's great because it tees him up as the anti-hero only to triple down in the last two minutes 'no, fuck you you crying Nazi prick.'
Family in Get Out is a candidate. Though Allison Williams has talked about how disturbing it was that some white audiences couldn't quite see her character as irredeemable. Good thing it didn't get focus grouped or she definitely would have had an arc where she 'snaps out of it.'

Not gonna dunk on any Texan unless they specifically filibustered Hurricane Sandy relief.

Snow, cold and ice suck. Electric outages in the winter get scary quick. I feel you fam.
My one advice is to put a premium on keeping your feet warm, especially if your floors are uncarpeted. Wear thick socks or even double socks, but don't reduce circulation by wearing shoes all the time.
And if you're shoveling out of heavy snow, start at the end of the driveway. The heaviest, coldest, iciest snow will be there and gets miserable to move if you're already winded. And square your corners like you're digging a grave. You'll make better progress.

cough the first avengers movie only has two women in the cast because whedon couldn't harass and manipulate A-listers like he could on WB shows coughcoughcough
Snyd3r & Whedon are weirdly polar opposites in another respect. Whedon cultivated a popular rep with media, critics & a wide fanbase while abusing/terrifying cast & crew. Snyd3r seemingly has great relationships with cast/crew but lashes out at critics, incites a narrow fanbase.
JJ Abrams seems to be the contemporary who has managed a meteoric rise as a creative without alienating the public, media or those* who work under him.

So maybe we should be fine with it when he's inevitably directing or producing the next Superman movie.

Hat tip to the Mandalorian Writers room for intro-ing/building up the Armorer, Fennec, Ahsoka, Bo Katan and other credible female action heroes so that, incidentally, the show wouldn't be one anti-Semitic post away from becoming dick soup.
Inclusive TV shows are sustainable TV shows
Cara is a survivor of genocide, on the precipice of crippling isolation and unquenchable rage in a life's pursuit of vengeance and you're seriously gonna compare getting ratioed to the Holocaust?!?!?
