okay I’m a little grossed out right now that Man of Steel using 9/11-esque imagery in a really harrowing, serious context is getting attacked when nobody seemed to mind about a quarter of Manhattan getting destroyed in a really gratuitous, “look what we can do” fashion in Avengers
STEELMAN: THE MOVIE
General feels: B+.
My usual spoilerful bullet point rant under the cut.
next mother’s day and father’s day, can we please not act like the feelings of people who lost great parents and are having a rough time because they’re missing them especially hard are exactly the same kind of feelings of discomfort with mother’s/father’s day experienced by people with shitty abusive parents?
like both are valid reasons for being uncomfortable with the holiday spams, but they don’t need to be lumped together and it’s disrespectful to both sides to do so
(ALSO: speaking from experience: it can also be rough for those of us who have good parental relations but will never be able to be parents ourselves. Please consider that- as a separate motive- too.)
I think one of my proudest moments on the Sueniverse in terms of meta stuff involved one of my characters making a passing reference to MCU!Loki not looking like “in the comics”and meaning the Sandman comics.
people on either side of it who think “fedora” as an insult actually, literally refers to anyone who wears a fedora hat
can I just say how refreshed I am, though, that the Hannibal fandom’s honest reaction is “oh my god someone please help Will Graham” and not like “hmm yes Will Graham’s suffering is delicious and nourishing”
it’s like everyone realized that the latter is exactly what Hannibal is doing and was like “we refuse”
