We have arrived at the disappointing destination of the Digimon Adventure Tri Saga, Digimon Adventure Tri. Chapter 6: Future. After five chapters with only one more to go, they are far too many unanswered questions that should have been answered by now. A lot like Avengers: Infinity War, this should be the climax of a saga, not another chapter where we hope that longstanding plot holes are finally addressed.
Back in February, I wrote an editorial titled Is #MoveTheNeedle The Time For #Comicsgate To Step Up Or Step Aside? Conservative Youtuber Richard Meyer, commonly known as his YouTube name Diversity & Comics rose to fame last year on the back of his videos that criticized the work of various comic book creators (Mainly those under the umbrella of Marvel Comics).
One thing that has become clear with Hollywood comedies is that there really aren’t any jokes in these films. It’s just a series of awkward events that only works if the audience is laughing. Case in point, the latest film starring Melissa McCarthy Life Of The Party. Melissa stars as Deanna, a middle-aged woman who got smacked down with a divorce as her daughter enters her senior year of college. So with nothing going in her life, she decides that she will also go to college and finish her senior year that she quit over 20 years ago.
Progressive late-night host Samantha Bee is scrambling to distance herself from a man she only 6 months ago called a “superhero who could stop President Donald Trump.” Democratic New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a leader in the progressive #MeToo movement resigned his position Monday night after the New Yorker reported on four women accusing him of physically abusing them during romantic relationships.
The biggest takeaway here is that the next writer of Marvel’s Captain America will be a guy who fundamentally hates America…because that will put butts in seats. Youtuber Yellow Flash has already stated that he will boycott this comic given Coates past comments in which he called 9/11 first responders “Not human” for their playing a part in the oppressive system and referred to “White America” as a “syndicate” designed to “dominate and control our bodies.”
So apparently, you Canucks don’t have access to the great American export of Trash Hollywood Remakes so I’m stepping in this week for a review of Overboard (2018). Believe it or not, there are other movies in theatres not named Avengers: Infinity War. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean the alternatives are very good.
With all the talk about Michelle Wolf who made a name for herself attacking Sarah Huckabee Sanders, I didn’t want to write anything about it because it really isn’t much of a story here. Left-wing comedienne attacks republicans…this happens every night on Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Steven Colbert, Seth Meyer, Trevor Noah, etc.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Actor and Producer Seth Rogen doubled down on his commitment to promote progressive politics in his film and television projects. When asked if his perspective as a white guy not being the most relevant to these larger cultural discussions such as the #MeToo movement (Yes, this was a real question)
