There goes Moviebob again, classifying an entire group of people as subhuman because he doesn't see eye-to-eye with them.

Also he deleted this tweet because he realised it was a bad look.

There was a time when I quite liked YMS videos, but at some point such large portions of his videos became dedicated to A) complaining about and making fun of the opinions of others and B) pre-emptively shutting down counterarguments to his videos that they became unwatchable for me.

His move away from critically-acclaimed/successful movies as YMS fodder towards incredibly bad, borderline-amateur works such as Cool Cat and Neil Breen movies made me further lose interest. I think Adam becoming increasingly Online really had a ruinous effect on his work.

So I looked it up and that second book she has, the sequel, is almost 5 times as long as the first book.

I'm looking forward to this series of videos, as directed by Peter Jackson.

I was absolutely aghast when she held up the second, much thicker book at the end. I did not expect the author of a 100-page throwaway story with a rushed ending to have the dedication to produce a novel of that size.

Popular C/C uploaded a video about the inconsistent approach to politics in the Harry Potter franchise and it's really good! I think someone posted her video about portrayals of unions in media in this thread a while ago, but she hasn't gotten a lot of attention since, which is a shame. Her previous video about the Bring Us Home movement was solid as well.

If you're going to look for games with needlessly long 100% completion times I feel like JRPGs kind of go without saying.

According to How Long to Beat, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts has a longer average 100% completion time than Donkey Kong 64, coming in at a hefty 46 hours. It also regularly and openly expresses contempt for the player, so it earns some extra points on the misery scale.

So Donkey Kong 64 is a game with good core gameplay that suffers from being too big, too much of the content consisting of menial interactions with the game world, and feeling unfinished.

It is clear then that the only true spiritual successor to Donkey Kong 64 is Metal Gear Solid 5.

I know I know. It was a joke suggestion. Though I will admit that I didn't know there was a surprise sex scene in MGS5. I thought that happened in the standalone prologue thingy and not the game proper.

This is only Internet Personality-adjacent, but I'm seeing rumblings on Twitter of Patreon responding very poorly to their current difficulties with transferring money to creators. Is it true that people who are running Patreon campaigns are receiving e-mails telling them they can get their payouts earlier if they accept an additional subtraction of 10% in fees from said payouts?

Because that sounds a lot like racketeering to me.

Hi folks, I put out a new video yesterday. It's about my favourite Marvel series: Cable's second solo outing. It's a series that has mostly been forgotten by the comicsphere, which is a shame because it's really neat and portrays Cable in a much more nuanced light than as the oorah 90s hero that most people remember him as.

I'm European and grew up on European comics (and a weeb phase) so this doesn't really say much, but most of the even middling heroes have kinda seeped across the pond after the MCU explosion yet I can honestly say I probably heard of Aquaman before his movie got announced more than Captain Marvel. Is Captain Marvel an actual popular superhero? It seems crazy to me that this movie might do better than, say, Wonder Woman who felt quite a bit more recognizable and whose movie seems to have had a better critical reception as well. Is it just the ever-growing MCU dominance ensuring new movies constantly outperform older ones or something?

Carol Danvers is actually fairly unpopular in the comics world because Marvel has been trying to maker her an A-lister without providing quality stories to back that up. Most of her appearances since changing titles from Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel have been OK at best and downright degrading at worst. In Civil War II, she is basically the superhero equivalent of the bad guys from Minority Report; this is portrayed as a good thing. It's only very recently (starting with Life of Captain Marvel in September 2018) that her character has been getting rerailed.

It really speaks to how skilled the people working on the MCU are that they managed to engineer a super popular character out of someone who has earned themselves so much antipathy from the comicsphere for the past decade or so.

I'm really confused that people are leaning so hard on "MS MARVEL IS AIR FORCE PROPAGANDA!!!!! IT'S AIR FORCE PROPAGANDA!!!!!" when it's been known and common for over a decade that movies that use military hardware have to get military approval for everything in the movie ever.

Like, yeah, it's propaganda-y. We know. We have known that this is a thing for forever. Why is it suddenly a tremendous issue for this one particular movie, where people weren't this weird about it for previous MCU blockbusters?

NB I am not approving of military propaganda in movies and would prefer people just make tanks and planes out of cardboard and duck tape rather than let the military set the tone, I'm just really weirded out that suddenly this is the great military propaganda film, and not any of the ones that went before.

The big difference (at least for me) this time around is that Captain Marvel is actively, aggressively being used as a vehicle for air force propaganda, by way of television ads and interviews, instead of merely being a piece of media that portrays military hardware.

I'm sure this isn't the first time that has happened, but it is the first time where it has felt so blatant and oppressive.

And went “what the gently caress.”

It's even better than that. Some mid-level Sega executive just happened to spot this exact comic while at the grocery store and decided "this has to stop." It was a complete coincidence.

The funniest thing about black panther to me, aside from the ending where t'challa plans to solve racism by teaching oakland kids how to code, is how its extremely obvious that they realized during script revisions that Killmonger was 100% justified in everything he did and completely reworked his character in the third act to t try and distract the audience from this

Killmonger killing his girlfriend was Bane revealing the bomb in The Dark Knight Rises all over again.
