Okay, so before I get into how much fucking fun I had watching the Flash/Supergirl crossover, can I just say how unbelievably incredible the penultimate episode of Amercian Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson was this week?!
I was in sixth grade when the Simpson trial was happening and the only thing I remember actually SEEING from the trial was that the verdict was not guilty. Everything else I know about the trial I know from references in pop culture. I'm pretty sure the first thing I ever really heard about the trial was Dana Carvey's comedy special where he talks about Bond framing O.J. with the help of Q.
So it's been amazing watching this series and finally finding out what happened. After every episode I find websites where they compare and contrast what actually happened in real life to the show. Every single time I'm like, "There's no fucking way that actually happened!", sure enough, it sure as fuck did.
Definitely worth your time if you guys get bored.
Okay, now onto this week's breaking story. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was one of the biggest disappointments in my nerd life. It wasn't a terrible movie, don't get me wrong, but that doesn't stop me from hating it. This was supposed to be one of the biggest superhero movies of all time and I was bored to fucking tears the entire time. I've been saying since day one that Batfleck was gonna be the only good part of the movie and I was right on the money on that one.
Honestly, I think Ben Affleck is by FAR the best Bruce Wayne AND the best Batman ever done in live action. Fuck Keaton and the rest. Buncha tiny little bitches. Batfleck could beat all their asses simultaneously...
...then we would shoot them and stab them in the heart.
Seriously, what the fuck was up with that?
Like, Iron Man has guns all up IN his shit. Captain America was a soldier in WW2. Thor has fought wars. Hawkeye and Black Widow are assassins. Superman killed one dude in the heat of the moment and vows never again. I'm perfectly fine with all of those characters killling people in the movies.
The man who, almost every other fucking comic arc has to do with him swearing never to kill anyone?
The man who, in Batman Beyond's premiere, when he's too old to be Batman during a stake out and he starts losing a fight with some goons, picks up a gun and scares them off. THEN, looks down and sees he has a FUCKING GUN in his hands and is so ashamed of himself he STOPS BEING FUCKING BATMAN?!
THE MAN WHO WATCHED HIS FAMILY GET MURDERED BY A GUN WHEN HE WAS A CHILD?!
THIS is the man who spends the last 30 minutes of the movie shooting and killing people?!
Again, don't get me wrong. It was fucking metal to watch. But afterwards it just made everything feel wrong with the world. A lot like the rest of the movie. Ugh.
