    From what I can recall, the controversial move Brie Larson made was working with a doctor that studies Inclusion Data to try and make a positive difference in having more diversity in the industry.

    For this she was attacked incessantly by alt-right trolls and her movie was "review-bombed" on rotten tomatoes before it was released. The same type of trolls that were responsible for #Gamergate.

    Chris Evans has been even more outspoken about everything, including diversity, but was never attacked by alt-right trolls. I wonder why?

    I mean, she's very, very hot. That's all I was talking about.

    Not edgy at all. If someone goes out of their way to constantly complain about a certain demographic then they're going to get a certain reaction. She got the exact reaction she wanted.

    Anyone advocating for diversity strictly for the sake of diversity is doing the opposite of what they're supposed to want. Race/gender is supposed to not matter at all. Saying we need more of x and less of y is the exact opposite of that.

    As far as the "alt-right trolls" go and what happened there, I don't know. I don't follow it and I don't support it. I'm only speaking about what I've personally seen her say and the way she came off. I also didn't follow anything about gamergate and I couldn't even tell you what it was .

    What demographic did she go after that offended you?

    No one should champion diversity because race/sex shouldnt matter at all? You cant actually be this naive?

    Not getting into a pointless discussion about this. I was just pointing out why people other than "alt-right trolls" would find her tiresome and why those kind of SJW efforts are actually counterproductive.

    Saying that someone needs to be in a position and forcing them into said position is saying that they were not qualified to be in that position in the first place and that they are only there because you forced them there.

    Is bernthal going to continue to be the punisher in the mcu? He’s an awesome actor and a badass punisher it’d be a travesty if we had seen the last of him.

    After a very mediocre episode last week, this week Westworld brought it's A game. That was incredible. Tessa Thompson deserves some kind of award, because she's carrying the damn show lately.

    I really wish Jeffrey Wright had more to do, though.

    I don't know who needs to hear this, but the truth is Paul Atreides is just a minor villain in the grand scheme of the Dune universe.

    It's Westworld. It can be hella uneven but it is consistently entertaining and sometimes it's just plain great and unlike anything else on TV. Last night's episode was one of those times. It's definitely worth a watch if you were into the first 2 seasons.

    Good to hear. I haven't watched last nights episode yet. I loved the first 2 this season but the last 2 were a bit slow and meandering.

    Last week's episode may have been one of the weakest entries of the entire series. This week's was one of the better.

    HF Flyers book club update. Stopped reading the Aubrey Maturin series. The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence released and I started reading that last night.

    I want to watch that whole series again from the beginning, but the stupid internet out here is too weak to stream Disney+

    Rumor is Spiderman 3 will have Charlie Cox's Daredevil in it because Spiderman will need a lawyer. Not confirmed...but given their history in the comics, marvels recent trend of team ups, Peter needing a new mentor, and marvel's push for diversity (DD being blind)...it makes a ton of sense. I think Cox would become a fan favorite overnight on the big stage.

    If Daredevil continues, I see no reason Bernthals punisher cant.

    I am probably setting myself ip for disappointment. Disney will insist they use She Hulk.

    Disney+ has admitted that their servers were not ready for the demand and they have had trouble keeping up. Here in the UK they took something like 40% of their titles off line to try to keep their servers up
