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

Flipping Tropes On Their Head – The Case for Grisaia no Kajitsu published on 1 Comment 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

Scott Talks Wrestling: Things Have Gone Sideways

Scott Talks Wrestling: Things Have Gone Sideways published on No Comments on Scott Talks Wrestling: Things Have Gone Sideways

Hoo boy. Okay.

So, if you’re one of those people who’s only following wrestling by checking out all of the awesome content that I put out (and really, I assume that’s all of you) then you know nothing about all of the black magic fuckery that’s been going on in the last two weeks. It all began with this wacky thing called the Superstar Shakeup. We talked about it a bit on the last Title Hunt podcast.

Well, it happened last Monday and Tuesday, and oh man, shit was a little bonkers. Perhaps most notably, several ongoing feuds were broken up even though there are matches booked for them in the coming weeks. For example, on the SmackDown after WrestleMania, Bray Wyatt announced that he would be cashing in his rematch clause against Randy Orton in a House of Horrors match, which doesn’t exist yet. That’s not a thing that’s real. He just teased it. Then Bray got traded to Raw. He announced his re-emergence by cutting a promo against Finn Balor. In the promo, he announced that his match with Randy is still happening! And, to be fair, it’s not like anybody was expecting Bray Wyatt to win this rematch, but now that they’re on separate shows (and Raw’s equivalent Universal Title isn’t being offered to a SmackDown guy) that makes this whole thing sort of inevitable.

My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast

My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast published on 3 Comments on My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast

Ok, so I have a small thing that I need to get off my chest. Apparently I am the only one amongst the group of people I hang out with that is bothered by, or has even noticed this. My own girlfriend has told me I am thinking way too much about this, that this doesn’t matter. But dammit this really bugs me and I feel like it’s important enough to talk about. This is one of those things that has been nagging at me for a really long time now and I just want to rant about it here. So if you’re on board for that then let’s go.Continue reading My Gripe with Beauty and the Beast

For about three years now, Greg, Billy, and I have had a protracted debate about whether or not Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze is a watchable movie. On the one hand, Greg and Billy believe it’s great, and on the other hand are the people who have taste.Continue reading On Subjectivity

Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground

Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground published on 1 Comment on Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground

So the Oscars are behind us, and without getting into it properly they were, shall we say divisive. For example, some people believe that La La Land should have swept every category it was in, and other people are wrong.

People are upset over the Best Picture flub and are blaming Warren Beatty, while other people have pointed out that it was very likely the fault of a backstage accountant. Other people are upset that Casey Affleck won Best Actor despite allegedly being a danger to the women he works with. I saw at least one person upset that Lin-Manuel Miranda missed out on his chance at the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony), and if you honestly believe that Zootopia was better than Kubo and the Two Strings I will fight you.

The point I’m trying to make is that the event was a little polarizing. Continue reading Oscars 2017: Finding Common Ground
