One True Ace Pairing: Fullmetal Alchemist

In my next post of the "One True Ace Pairing" series, I will talk about human characters! Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye from Fullmetal Alchemist. We can argue about whether they are an ace pair or not. I am not unaware of the massively popular Royai ship. But you also cannot argue that neither of … Continue reading One True Ace Pairing: Fullmetal Alchemist

The Evolution of Men from Khal Drogo to Aquaman

One of the things about Aquaman that struck me was how he approached love-interest Mera. Based on movies that came out since the beginning of Hollywood, and the casting of the manliest man like Jason Momoa, we would have expected the hero to surely sweep the woman off her feet and sweep her into a … Continue reading The Evolution of Men from Khal Drogo to Aquaman

The Crimes of Grindelwald is Full of Plot Holes and Here is Why That Matters

After watching The Crimes of Grindelwald, I decided to write down everything about the movie that confused me. (Note that these are not all plot holes. Some are just stuff that might take multiple viewings to understand, but I doubt I want to watch this movie again.)

I'll be honest, I picked this one because I thought it would be fraught with cultural appropriation and I thought I'd make a good time of it calling it out for that. Well, okay, also because I … Continue reading The Hundredth Queen: Cultural Appropriation?

More Thoughts on Beauty and the Beast

Since posting┬ámy thoughts on the movie, I've read and watched a bunch of other reviews. Here, I will link to the one that I thought was the best, because it's a detailed and thoughtful analysis that wasn't too much in love with the movie, or hating on it. And because it raises a great point … Continue reading More Thoughts on Beauty and the Beast

Disney’s Live-Action Fairy Tales

In my last post, I briefly talked about the Disney's live action remakes, and I thought I'd talk about them some more, a little bit more specifically. These won't be full-fledged reviews. Alice in Wonderland (and Alice Through the Looking Glass) These aren't remakes of course. I think they are meant to be continuations of … Continue reading Disney’s Live-Action Fairy Tales
