"[…] If Snowpiercer had merely told the tale of an oppressed working class rising up to seize power from an evil overlord, it would already have been an improvement over most of the political messages in mainstream cinema. There are all sorts of nice touches in its portrayal of a declining capitalism that can maintain its ideological legitimacy even when it literally has no more bullets in its guns.

But the story Bong tells goes beyond that. It’s about the limitations of a revolution which merely takes over the existing social machinery rather than attempting to transcend it. And it’s all the more effective because the heart of that critique comes as a late surprise, from a character we might not expect.

[…] All too often, explicitly political art fails as both art and politics. Socialists shouldn’t put up with half-assed imitations of popular genres, nor with political messages denuded of anything but the lowest common denominator.

What makes Snowpiercer satisfying is that it commits neither error. It’s an engrossing and stylish movie, and its underlying themes go beyond merely pointing out class exploitation to challenge the logic of capital. It’s a movie that should be seen as widely as possible, if only so that Bong Joon-ho gets more chances to make movies for English-speaking audiences that badly need them."

"The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) has done things that are far more heinous than anything Grant Ward has ever done as far as we know, and yet, at the end of the movie, you’re rooting for him to come back on the side of the angels,"

Jeph Loeb (via jennieconvertible)

The difference here being that Grant Ward CHOSE to do them.

UGH.

Worst of all — this dude is one of the execs for Agents of SHIELD, and this sounds like a prelude to a fucking redemption arc. Now I fully expect the next season to be a shitfest. Just… how can you misinterpret your characters this badly?

#friends don’t let friends write redemption arcs for grant ward

(via valerieparker)

bucky was literally a prisoner of war who was experimented on and tortured until he was unable to fight back against any orders and the minute someone showed up who started treating him like a person again, he started to revert back to his humanity and fight against his programming

ward is a grown-ass man who was treated as a person by the people on his team clearly presented with opportunities by them to make the right choices and refused to make the right choices every time

fuck grant ward

(via theladymonsters)

y’all are surprised???  this is how he publicly promotes himself.

give me Sam Wilson and Steve Rodgers sending eachother snapchats but then all of a sudden Sam is shirtless in his snapchats and then THE CONTEST BEGINS

Steve would download it because Sam really wanted him to but he doesn’t even add anyone else or tell anyone else he joined and his username is vague and private like DodgersTrue41 and he only snapchats for Sam and Sam only.

There’s really no excuse for why Betty Ross can’t track Bruce Banner down at this point and really no reason why she wouldn’t be trying her hardest to do so but I bet you that we’ll never see Betty Ross in the MCU again anyway because Marvel Studios

The more often Spider-Gwen has been popping up on my dash the more people come to my inbox to ask where she’s from and what is Spider-Verse. I’ve been putting this off but I finally gave in and made side blogs for amazingspidergwen and peniparkers so let me explain where these two badasses come from.
Spider-Verse is an upcoming event for the ongoing Marvel Comics title Amazing Spider-Man written by Dan Slott. The event will begin with Amazing Spider-Man #9, available in November. This event will bring together every Spidey there’s ever been to battle the big bad Morlun.
Edge of Spider-Verse is a five issue miniseries that will introduce readers to brand new Spider-peeps before the Spider-Verse event. These will be released in September and October. Each issue will feature a different creative team. Which really sells the whole different universes theme if you ask me!

Anonymous said: How do you feel about Babs in the Nu52? I feel like it's not her, it's not Barbara Gordon but rather a bastardization of Stephanie Brown (who I love dearly). And, while this is an unpopular opinion, I don't care for Gail's writing in general. She had some good moments when she wrote Wonder Woman but I see her as a hit and miss writer and feel that her work on Batgirl is a betrayal to who Barbara is.

themyskira:

I hate what the New 52 did to Babs. Hate it, hate it, hate it.

Because here’s the thing: Sure, I like Babs as Batgirl. Her intelligence and tenacity, her resourcefulness; her determination to forge her own path and fight for justice in her own way even in the face of others’ refusals. She’s a great character.

But even more than that, I love how that girl’s grown, how she’s pushed on through trauma and life-altering injury and reinvented herself. How she once again refused to be relegated to the sidelines, and dedicated that same intelligence and tenacity and resourcefulness to building a formidable information network that ultimately allowed her to achieve far greater change than she ever had as Batgirl.

Over the course of twenty years, we watched her make her mark as Oracle. We saw her build a team around herself, which ultimately became something of a family. We saw her become a leader and a mentor to young crimefighters, including two girls who’d chosen to follow in her footsteps.

I like Babs as Batgirl. But I love the woman that Batgirl became.

And the New 52 strips all of that away.
