I thought Solo was considerably better than Rogue One. All of the supporting characters were far more memorable and fleshed out, and the fan service was a lot more subtle. It was fun and funny in...

I don't disagree that the newer characters are weaker than the originals, but they're not weak BECAUSE they're diverse. They're weak because the writing in general is generated from a corporate...

Tenured professor of art history here. I would argue that the very choice to try and make apolitical art is itself a political choice. Art does not exist in a vacuum. The context of both artist...

The problem I see with that is that if you go back into 19th Century America, it basically just becomes a Western. We're already not all THAT far removed from a Western-style costume with all the...

Fair points, definitely. I'll concede that I'm not as familiar with the original serials as I'd like to be. I guess I was thinking more along the lines of 1930s films like the original King Kong,...
