I'm no Rose fan, but I wouldn't be that harsh. She beats Dodo, Ben, Polly, Adric, Turlough, Peri, and Mel pretty handily at least, which is a good chunk of companions, and there are a couple others I'd rate her over too. She's way overrated by some circles, but far from "worst". » 11/24/14 3:16pm Monday 3:16pm

Look, who gives a shit about the affirmative action involved if it gets a giant talent like MacLaren finally getting the recognition she's due. It doesn't matter in a contextless vacuum, but in the context of a world stacked against women, who have historically found it near impossible to be directing large budget,… » 11/12/14 9:35pm 11/12/14 9:35pm

Honestly, the whole argument kind of falls apart when you realize how much of a juggernaut Cartoon Network is now, creatively and commercially. Adventure Time and Regular Show rake in huge bucks for them, and Steven Universe, Gumball, Uncle Grandpa, and Clarence, maybe, are nice successes for them too. So much that… » 11/06/14 4:44pm 11/06/14 4:44pm

"Disney was struggling to let a woman CO-direct a movie that was her idea in the first place". I agree with you philosophically, but this is awfully misleading. Jennifer Lee had no ambition to direct Frozen originally, she was just hired as the screenwriter, part of a much larger process of conception and reinvention,… » 10/24/14 11:32am 10/24/14 11:32am

It's not really a truncated production. Disney films take around a year to animate I believe, so this is really just two years less of pre-production. All that means is Disney is more satisfied with the story of this film where it is right now than what was originally planned there (Nathan Greno's Giants). » 10/20/14 4:49pm 10/20/14 4:49pm

It hasn't gotten better. Though there were dips (ugh, Neverland) and peaks (I did like the Witch arc) it's mostly been the same consistent show. Fun, creative ideas that sometimes lead to soapy goodness and other times make you bang your head into a wall. » 10/11/14 10:52am 10/11/14 10:52am

Here's a question for you all. Last night in a discussion I called Sara's death a fridging (see: http://lby3.com/wir/) and some people disagreed with me, saying it didn't count because Sara was a strong character and her death will serve to motivate Laurel more than Ollie. Taking away the thought whether this was a… » 10/09/14 11:50am 10/09/14 11:50am
