I'm increasingly of the belief that people are right to say that the Internet is killing movie criticism, but not because it's making it more democratic or anything, because it's smothering it in an overwhelming pile of hyperbolic, literally prejudiced wank.

Won't somebody think of the poor blockbusters and their nine-digit marketing budgets?

Yeah, I know WHM is comedy, and I know BvS is (probably) bad, but it does annoy me how so many people tend to turn criticism into clickbaity "hyperbole about a thing that you know didn't reaaaaaaaally happen if you'd seen the film" like "WOW REMEMBER WHEN SUPERMAN AND LOIS WERE JOYFULLY MAKING OUT OVER THE CORPSES OF METROPOLIS" and "WOW DID YOU GUYS HEAR BEN GRIMM IN THE FANTASTIC FOUR MOVIE GOT LIKE, ABUSED AS A CHILD? IT WAS SUUUUPER GRIMDARK"

I have been giggling at Martha Manhunter all day, to the point that I think there might be something wrong with me.

Also, as a resident of Kentucky, I feel that Metallo would be a better leader and representative for the state than Mitch McConnell is.

where in reality that poor movie was just your run of the mill mundanely bad incomplete movie

If you were to cut that film into the twelve minutes doom was on screen it would be a great movie.

Why do the boys hate 300 so much? Have they talked about it in detail? I'm not a Hack Snyder fan but he was really good at incorporating cgi into that film. Is it because they are being libtards and don't like the fascist narrative of the comic book?

I think a lot of it is residual hate for Frank Miller, which is always deserved.

I feel like maybe Russell Madness just due to the wrestling in the movie. If not that then it was definitely released right around that time.

No, it was a relatively recent episode, and I remember it was a really melodramatic movie

It was the fact that Vin Diesel comes back to life at the end. I think Steve starts saying Vin Diesel hears it from the crowd and gets back up and then they go from there. It's one of my favourite bits of WHM ever.

How, exactly, does The Gotham Bat convince people in prison to kill people he's branded? Like, does he have plants or something?

It's implied that he brands the worst types of criminals like human traffickers. It's vaguely analogous to how child rapists are targeted in prison. I'm sure that's the vibe they were going for at least.
