Scott Talks Wrestling: Battleground Was Worse Than You Thought

Scott Talks Wrestling: Battleground Was Worse Than You Thought published on No Comments on Scott Talks Wrestling: Battleground Was Worse Than You Thought

So anybody who saw Sunday’s Battleground pay-per-view will be able to tell you that it was bad. It’s made all the worse by the fact that last year’s equivalent was probably the best “B-show” of the year (Meaning it wasn’t WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, or the Royal Rumble). WhatCulture already wrote a lovely article about the obvious stuff so I’m going to stay away from, “Oh, the Punjabi Prison is impossible to see into, and there’s strange racial implications,” and whatever. Other people have said it already and said it better. Instead, I want to talk about Battleground as a signpost of something very simple:

The company continues to stay the course.

Peter Parker Was Not in Iron Man 2: A Brief Explanation of Marvel’s Screwy Copyright Problem

Peter Parker Was Not in Iron Man 2: A Brief Explanation of Marvel’s Screwy Copyright Problem published on No Comments on Peter Parker Was Not in Iron Man 2: A Brief Explanation of Marvel’s Screwy Copyright Problem

Also known as “Why fucking awful Fantastic Four movies keep coming out for some reason.”

Recently Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tom Holland revealed in an interview that according to Marvel big-wig Kevin Feige Peter Parker appeared in 2010’s Iron Man 2 in a brief cameo. Some people are chuckling to themselves about it but some people are flipping their lids thinking that Marvel’s had this whole Spider-Man thing on the back burner for seven years and they’ve just been waiting to let the hype train loose from the station until now.

As a Marvel fanboy I’d love to be able to tell everyone that Kevin Feige is some kind of secret genius, but as many people already know, given Marvel’s current cinematic landscape, it was impossible for this to have been the plan all along. To explain why, we have to step back about twenty-five years.

First of all, to address the title, take any joke in the film and imagine that it was plucked verbatim from a Zooey Deschanel movie. You’ll be surprised how many of them line up.Continue reading Manic Pixie Dream God

Flipping Tropes On Their Head – The Case for Grisaia no Kajitsu

Flipping Tropes On Their Head – The Case for Grisaia no Kajitsu published on No Comments on Flipping Tropes On Their Head – The Case for Grisaia no Kajitsu

Full disclosure, in this article I’m going to be talking about something that is, in strictly technical definitions, pornography. The article is not about the sexual aspects, nor does it feature any sexual images. You’ve been warned in advance.

You know what I love? Taking something old and tired and making it new and interesting again. I love, for example, that Cabin in the Woods was able to take the played-out formula for an 80’s-style slasher movie and turn the whole thing on its head until it made that style fresh again. I think that sort of thing is brilliant. Continue reading Flipping Tropes On Their Head – The Case for Grisaia no Kajitsu
