Cerulean Spork
& oc its not like DC has gained any more respect for their heroines since 2004 

seeing as they have continually defaced the amazons into villains , erased  dianas miraculous origin , & finally given her book to an artist known for his snake-centaur poses of WW

& his wife who has ZERO XP writing superheroes let alone iconic heroines BC HEY SHE IS A WOMAN WRITER WOMEN WILL BUY ANYTHING SO LONG AS ITS BY A WOMAN WRITER RIGHT ??

its the cynical print version of the bechdel test gamesmanship

& also shows they havent learned 1 damn thing since putting jodie picoult on WONDER WOMAN to write her as a mopey self loathing single working gal a la CATHY or some generic sitcom , was a howling flop BUT JODIE PICOULT BIG NAME FEMALE AUTHOR WHY DONT FANGIRLS JUST LURVE THIS ??? DO WE NEED MORE SHOE SHOPPING TRIPS ???

2007 is not ancient history ppl

neither is 2004

esp not for fandom

Vimes stared at the door until his eyebrows ached. And then, just as random patterns in cloud suddenly, without changing in any way, become a horse’s head or a sailing ship, he saw what he’d been looking at all along.

A sense of terrifying admiration overcame him.

Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett, 1989
wow do bayformers fans hate science fiction & TRANSFORMERS both

srsly i have been reading the defenses of TF4 & the series altog in the comments to negative reviews

& like many if not most fans of PROMETHEUS , all of them seem to have complete & utter contempt for the genre as a whole

& for the TRANSFORMERS property in particlr

bc damn if they dont defend it by saying over & over agn ITS SCIENCE FICTION ! ! ! THAT MEANS ITS SUPPOSED TO BE STUPID ! ! YR SUPPOSED TO TURN YR BRAIN OFF & JUST ENJOY THE SHINIES ! ! !

which lol yeah nope

yes this is the same genre that gave us tons of awful over the past 200 yrs  PAGING TED STURGEON TO THE FRONT DESK MR STURGEON PLEASE EXPLAIN YR LAW TO THE AUDIENCE TYVM

but what sf as a genre —& im including fantasy as part of “speculative fiction” bc 1 most historical “hard sf” hasnt been hard @ all & the fact that its got RLY BIG NUMBERS & CALLS ITSELF SF INSTEAD OF FANTASY doesnt make it so , 2 WHETHER ITS SUPER ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OR ACTUAL MAGIC DOESNT RLY MATTER TO THE STORY , IN MOST CASES & in a lot of technically fantasy stories the ‘magic ” is more rigorously obdt to logic & natural laws than the ” science’  is in tons of supposedly “hard” sf stories past & present

—what the point of sf as a genre WAS all along wasnt EVER just mindless WOOO entertainment , esp blowin shit up

you can watch a fireworks show for that for a lot cheaper

or even mindless plotless violence

thats what boxing matches were for NOTICE I DIDNT SAY “WRESTLING” WHEN THE WWF WORRIES MORE ABT PLOTLINES & CONSISTENT CHARACTERIZATION THAN A ZILLION DOLLAR SCIENCE FICTION MOVIE THERE IS A PROBLEM HERE altho football is closer since its not scripted like wrestling STILL YOU CAN FOLLOW THE ACTION IN SPORTS & THERE IS A NECC LOGIC TO IT BC LIMITATIONS OF PHYSICS & etc

sf was supposed to show us possibilities of things outside our actual normal everyday life

& make us think abt them

WHAT IF we cld build sentients out of machines ?? WHAT THEN ?? what if we cld turn animals into talking humanoids ??  what if aliens show up & treat us like we treat each other ?? or what if theyre better than we are in terms of bein kind & decent? ? what wld that say abt the nature of humanity & our use of “humane” as a synonym for goodness?? what if we cld find a way to live forever ? what wld that do to society ? ? to us as individuals ?? what wld the costs be & who wld pay them ?? what wld put the brakes of responsibility on infinite pwr??

iow all the kinds of stuffs that TWILIGHT ZONE used to do on a shoestring budget every ep in b/w , that every corny tv series used to take a whack at , no matter how clumsily , & mixed in w the excitement of laser blasts & rocket sleds & ppl w bumpy foreheads running arnd endless corridors IN SPAAAACE

& the best ones are still argued abt WHAT DOES THIS SAY / MEAN FOR US ?? like say FRANKENSTEIN, OR, THE NEW PROMETHEUS or THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL or 1984 or 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA

bc the societal problems that those authors faced havent gone away

altho how we look at them has changed bc of how they wrote abt them & posed the questions , even if we disagree w their solutions

which is why we keep revisiting them , & why the remakes that take out all the core of story & characterizations to replace it w WOOO SHINY EXPLOSIONS are ttly forgotten

how many ppl fondly rewatch the 1998 LOST IN SPACE?? & yes the 1960s show was awful in so many ways & having eps aired out of order in reruns didnt help

but i remember it fondly & it made me want to be a space explorer when i was a little spork in grade schl DANGER WILL ROBINSON ahem

but i cant remember a damn THING abt the movie even tho we went to see it in a theatre —except bein disappointed all thru it , & oh there were some interestinly geometric spidery aliens ONLY NOTHING WAS EVER DONE W THAT OR ANY OF THE CAST , TTLY WASTED

it was like it had neither the outrageous corniness of the old one NOR its heart & complications of loyalties & suspensefulness , was nothin but BLAND w jumpscares tryin to make up for the absence of anything @ all

& this is what ppl are objecting to wrt BAYFORMERS 4 THE BAYHEMING , & also w PROMETHEUS

its not bc they “HATE FUN” omg lol hilarious NOPE WE JUST HAVE HIGHER STANDARDS OF FUN THAN EXPLOSIONS & CHAOTIC FIGHT SCNS STRUNG TOG VIA WHAT I SEE LOTS OF PPL CALLING ‘EDITING BY CUISINART”

also we dont find the trifecta of racism / sexism / homophobia to be “FUN” either

which makes the subset of TF4 defenders who go from ITS SCIENCE FICTION WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ?? to “ITS 4 CHILDREN , WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ??? even more disturbing

bc it says that they DO think that its a good idea to raise their kids on casual use of racial stereotypes , objectification of women , & macho heteronormative aggression 

PART OF THE CONTINUING PROBLEM RIGHT HERE

srsly a movie that was JUST 2.75 hrs of mindless poorly-choreographed action scns w no dialogue , just snd effex & music strung together in HD IMAX 32 wld be hell for many of us , but AT LEAST IT WLDNT BE AGGRESSIVELY OFFENSIVE

it wldnt be pretendin to tell a story & then goin HAHA LOL TRICKED U AGN ! !

it wldnt be pushing an agenda of dehumanization & casual cruelty either

or an agenda of submission to traditional white male dominated authoritarianism either

bc that is the real heart of TF4

what michael bay , like ridley scott , is peddling under all the shiny BIM BANG BOOM of the movies

its the same “moral” lesson in MAN OF STEEL too

that the powerful , so long as they CLAIM to be doin it ‘for our own good” , have the right to kill as many innocent bystanders as they can , & nobody has any right to call em on it , or stand up to these so-called “DEFENDERS” & say nope YR NOT ACTUALLY SAVIN THE WORLD BY DESTROYIN IT , GTFO

bc i have seen comment after comment defending the plot , such as it is , of TRANS4MERS , just like w MOS , by sayin WELL BUT THE BAD GUYS WLD HAVE DESTROYED EARTH OTHERWISE so it was ttly justified & nobody has any right to complain

oc not recognizing THIS IS HOW THE WRITERS SET IT UP its a “COLD EQUATIONS” game not an objective reality

but they are accepting the setup AND saying that the survivors have no right to be outraged at the “collateral damage” in MAN OF STEEL & TF3 & THAT IT IS WRONG FOR THE PPL OF EARTH TO SAY NOPE THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY PROTECTION & YOU HAVE DONE US AS MUCH HARM AS YR ENEMIES YR SUPPOSEDLY DEFENDING US FROM , AS FAR AS WE ARE CONCERNED YR BOTH OUR ENEMIES NOW

bc vengeance for your dead is ONLY okay if yr a designated “GOOD GUY”

the fact that one of the mib is avenging his own dead family killed when the transformers brought their war to our planet , doesnt count

not like optimus prime avengin HIS dead does , bc HE IS ONE OF THE HEROES & the cia guy is A VILLAIN we know that bc he is against the designated good guys

even if they dont actually act like good guys

& THIS IS THE EXACT SAME LOGIC THAT IS USED TO DEFEND AGAINST ANY SORT OF ACCOUNTABILITY FOR COPS WHO SHOOT INNOCENT PPL

as well as civilian casualties by our forces in the name of “liberation”

& I SEE SO MANY TF & MOS fans who clearly dont identify as humans but w the superhuman community , who self identify w the superpowered aliens HUMANS SUCK THEY ARE UNGRATEFUL TO THE AUTOBOTS / KAL-EL HUMANITY DOESNT DESERVE TO BE PROTECTED SO SELFLESSLY & NOBLY BY THESE HEROES

& you have to wonder SO DUDE , YOU WLD BE OKAY W BEING SQUASHED IN A FIGHT OR HAVIN YR FAMILY SQUASHED IN A FIGHT BTWN ARMIES OF ALIENS ?? YOU RLY WLDNT HAVE ANY RESENTMENT OR WONDER WHY THEY CLDNT HAVE TAKEN THEIR BATTLE TO SOME UNINHABITED PLANET INSTEAD ?? YOU HONESTLY THINK THEYRE ABOVE CRITICISM FOR THEIR CARELESS SMITING , LIKE WILLIAM LANE CRAIG DOES ABT HIS GOD ??? (x)

theres more shit — ive found a major ripoff of BLADE 2 climactic battles in TF4 now — but i rly do think that this “law & order” conservativism is underpinning bays “HARMLESS MINDLESS FUN” & also snyder / goyers take on superheroism

bc THIS IS THE MESSAGE ITS DEFENDERS ARE TAKING AWAY FROM IT IN DROVES

the exception is PROMETHEUS where the audience is NOT ( by & large ) identifying w the engineers ALTHO the engineers as justified in smitin an ingrate humanity IS PUT FORWARD by the movies creator in interviews

& i think that is bc ALTHO BOTH LINDELOF & SPAIHTS SCRIPTS DESCRIBE THEM AS BEIN UNEARTHLY BEAUTIFUL & NOBLE that is SO NOT what they look like on screen

they dont look like actual living classical statuary of gods

they look simultaneously unfinished & overdeveloped , like potatoes left to sprout in the dark

& yes we are shallow THE HOSTILE MONSTERS ARE UGLY DO NOT WANT but they cld be six kinds of “ugly” by human standards & we wld like them IF they had good personalities HANDS UP ALL GARGOYLES & G1 TRANSFORMERS FANS how many STAR WARS fans wldnt rather kiss a wookiee than a human jerk??

instead PROMETHEUS engineers have no personalities onscreen besides “ASSHOLE” & “DUMBASS” — dumbass bc they cant figure out how to “seed” “life” on a world wo committng suicide , dumbass bc they cant figure out how to secure their own supertoxic bioweapons — & assholes bc they made supertoxic bioweapons & planned to use them in the first place

oh & kill random strangers wo any discussion

none of these the actions of superior supergenius beings whose opinions we shld care abt

no matter what they look like

BUT “MAN OF STEEL” & THE BAYFORMERS SERIES ARE PLAYING ON OUR AFFECTION FOR THE OLD FAMILIAR CHARACTERS WHOSE NAMES

BUT NOT PERSONALITIES

THEIR MOVIES HAVE STOLEN

usurpers in fact , SKRULL-KAL-EL & SKRULL-PRIME

HYDRA-PLACED DOOMBOT DOUBLES

selling us on apathy @ random slaughter of the nameless faceless masses , rejoicing at the death of yr enemies , & look out for #1 as ideals

along w the objectification & / or scorn of everyone different from the white male muscly default , who only exist to serve the macho “heroes”

its about as far from the ethos of DISCWORLD as you can get

or yes , of PACIFIC RIM ( where are the disabled heroes in bay movies ? WHEN RA HEINLEIN DOES BETTER THAN YOU IN REPRESENTATION IN ALL AREAS , YOU HAVE PROBLEMS TO BIG TO MEASURE — )

& i think its very telling that MAN OF STEEL fans desperately try to say its EXACTLY the same bc there wld have been civilian casualties during the city battles

when PACIFIC RIM showed that THIS WAS NOT ACCEPTABLE AS “COLLATERAL DAMAGE” TO BE SHRUGGED OFF BY THE GOOD GUYS , that they made every possible effort to keep hostilities OUT @ SEA in the first place BUT also tried to get everyone off the streets & out of range of falling masonry AS A REGULAR THING

in a scene DELIBERATELY INVOKING THE BLITZ & THE LONDON UNDERGROUND SHELTERS from WWII air raids

in which YES PPL STILL DIED esp after the V2 rockets started bein used

bc hello unstoppable untrackable random highspeed strikes YEP  PRETTY MUCH JUST HOPE YR LUCKY THIS TIME

BUT NOBODY JUST WENT “MEH, THERES PLENTY MORE BUILDINGS & CIVILIANS WHERE THOSE CAME FROM” & didnt try to either intercept the other sides air raids

or protect their population & infrastructure to the best of their abilities

limited tho those might be

& its telling to ME @ least that what limited success bay achieved this time w those viewers who didnt like TF4 but agreed it wasnt AS awful as the previous 3 , was MOSTLY where he stole from PR ( along w stanley tucci bein better than his material ) BUT WO UNDERSTANDING WHAT HE WAS CRIBBING IN ANY WAY

so he puts in a big shiny swored & makes buffed PESSIMIST PRIME look an awful lot like a jaeger

along w swiping fight play-by-plays & even lines from del toro

puts in a theme of betrayal & heroes-as-outnumbered-underdogs this time

wo doing any of the work to make it reasonable or resonating BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO NEST ?? exclaim the fans who only now bailed , but hit their last straw , or G1 & comics fans who hoped agnst hope that bay had somehow pulled this one tog into a decent movie HOW IS THIS SECRET CIA AUTOBOT ASSASSINATION THING EVEN WORKING WO EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY  KNOWING ABT IT ?? WHAT IS GOING ON THAT ERASED SOME BUT NOT ALL THE PAST FILMS CONTINUITY ?? YOU CANT JUST CHANGE EVERYTHING WO EXPLANATION & EXPECT US TO ACCEPT IT BC “WOO EXPLOSIONS” — well , his diehard “WE DONT NEED RATIONALIZATION , WE DONT NEED NO PLOT CONTROL” fans do , oc

but i rly wonder what it is they like abt the films

bc so many of them will admit that the plot makes no sense , the editing jumps arnd incoherently , the dialogue is terrible , the characterization is either thin or ttly OOC w r t the transformers themselves , the racial & sexual stereotyping is reactionary & the product placement feels like self parody & the score blah

& the vaunted fight scns are jumbled & messily framed & cut , & the visual design of the robots is messy & unattractive & confusing as well as not canon either

& so HOW IS THIS EVEN TRANSFORMERS ?? it isnt attractive in itself , & it cant be justified by fidelity to the original property

so WHAT IS IT THAT IS LIKEABLE IN IT ??? you cld have someone throw bricks @ a piece of sheet metal in front of you for a couple hrs

across a lit gas grill into which they randomly splashed shots of vodka

it wld have the same effect

for a lot less $$$

so im gonna go out onna limb & say they rly do LIKE the reinforcement of “daddy knows best” stereotype & objectification of women & angsty manpain mcmanpainson NOW W DOUBLE YR WOOBIE as cade LOL yeager & pessimist prime share their laments over how nobody appreciates them for how hard they try

( its been speculated by more than 1 reviewer that this , like sam witwickys laments in TF3 , is a bit of michael bay self insertion , & i wldnt be @ all surprised )

but my guess is that bayformers fans actually DO like the meanspiritedness & the sexism & the racism & the ott machismo , & NOT ironically — but know theyd be mocked if they admitted it

& thats why all they can do is accuse critics of “hating fun” or “not getting that its just sf / childrens cartoon in CGI / mindless popcorn movie “

instead of seeing how that shows their utter contempt for science fiction , action movies , children & their entertainment — & TRANSFORMERS the series themselves

tho not more so than PARAMOUNT , which showed the same disrespect for TF as a property by hiring non-fan bay WHO ONLY HAD TWO SO-SO ACTION MOVIES TO HIS NAME BTW & A HANDFUL OF BLAHS & FLOPS BEFORE THEY GAVE HIM THE KEYS , I THOUGHT HE HAD MORE OF A REP BUT NOPE , “THE ROCK” & “ARMAGEDDON” neither of which are 1 great art 2 good science fiction THEN THE UNIVERSALLY REVILED “PEARL HARBOR” & THE OKAY-IF-UNORIGINAL-TILL-IT-TURNED-INTO-EXPLOSION-FEST “ISLAND” (it was still unoriginal after it turned into nonstop chase scns but it stopped bein okay then too ) & mean spirited cop comedy BAD BOYS

WHAT IN ANY OF THIS QUALIFIED BAY TO DIRECT A BELOVED CHILDRENS SERIES ABT TRANSFORMING ROBOTS W THE COURAGE TO BE CARING & KIND ? ANS: CRONYISM

the same disrespect paramount showed by givin beloved series STAR TREK to a bay colleague who neither loved nor was familiar w it

the same disrespect DC showed to CATWOMAN when they gave her movie to a guy who had ZERO XP DIRECTING MOVIES OF ANY KIND & who turned the earlier scripts sexist LOL WOMEN SO VAIN ! ! & then (badly BUT OBVIOUSLY ) ripped off the fight scns from BLADE 2 for it YEAN THERE IS THAT STEALING IDEAS FROM GUILLERMO DEL TORO THING AGN

& there is a very weird exchange i have only heard reported on 1x so far & no video of it yet , but it sounds like a bit of directorial id poking out , the way that vickers rant on “tokenism” & “fund yr own movie expedition if you experts want any say in how it goes” feels like ridley scott self insertion , even tho she is a “bad guy”

where theres this chara who is supposed to be the hero cade LOL YEAGER s bff & partner , & yet cade tells him that he gave up all his ip rights to cade when he came on cades property even if he didnt realize that hed signed on to a work for hire

which is 1 . a shitty thing to do t yr friend & partner , 2 . THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE GUY WERE ROOTING FOR ?? bc apparently the way its set up , the partner — played by tj miller of CLOVERFIELD & positioned as a “surfer dude” ALTHO IN THE MIDDLE OF TEXAS

but w his hair & clothes resembling AN AWFUL LOT the chara of willie

the darcy of CONTACT played by max martini so long ago — & yall do remember that there is ALSO A SIDEKICK SCIENTIST IN TF4 NAMED “DARCY” along w DR ERSKINE-AS-TONY-STARK —is killed grisly way shortly in karma for his ‘well-intentioned ’ betrayal of their autobot find to the authorities  —which also ties him to the surfer/hacker villain in BLADE 2, & unmourned thereafter despite agn supposed to have been the hero & his daughters bff for ages

& I THINK THAT THIS IS BAY CLAIMING THAT THE POWERFUL IN THE STUDIOS ARE ENTITLED TO TAKE ANYTHING THEY WANT FROM THE “LITTLE PPL” WO REIMBURSEMENT OR RECOGNITION (we dont have to wonder where shia got the idea itwas okay im afraid )

& this goes more than a little ways to explaining the cryptic “space pirate” themes in PR , even beyond the alan moore connection SOMETIMES YOU JUST GOTTA SPIT ON YR HANDS & NAIL THAT BLACK FLAG TO THE MAST , AMIRITE ??

& also a bit of nasty menace in it , similar to PROMETHEUS offing a chara made up as an analog to young trevor bruttenholm ONLY YKNOW A TTL FOOL

& that goes w the latest bits of EXODUS: GODS & KINGS promo material , which have some specifically anti PACIFIC RIM & anti THOR bits , if you know what yr lookin at / listening to

bc LIKE I SAID the ethos of MIGHT MAKES RIGHT SO LONG AS ITS OUR GUYS W THE MIGHT is abt as diametrically opposed to the ethos of the del toro multiverse — & likewise to pratchetts multiverse — that it might as well be IN another universe

& im pretty sure that just like the yellow sports car in COUNSELOR bein a michael bay shoutout , the PROMETHEUS / STAR TREK bits in TF4:AGE OF EXTINCTION arent just mindless swipes or even mockery as w the PR swipage , but shoutouts to his old crony jj abrams & a salute to fellow defender of the old empire , ridley scott & his new cronies PERN RIPPER-OFFER spaight & SEXIST JACKASS / ALAN MOORE FANBOY lindelof

& i think that most of the order of the golden fedora rly DO see themselves as , @ heart , RORSHACH BEIN IMPLORED BY THE FOOLISH MASSES TO SAVE THEM & SNEERING “NO” — OR @ BEST , ADRIAN “OZ” VEIDT SAYING “SURE, JUST LET ME DESTROY YR CIVILIZATION TO SAVE IT, OKAY?”

 & thus they rewrite optimus prime & superman AS ozymandius , & dont understand why so many of us recoil in disgust SRSLY ONE OF THE BEST YOUTUBE REVIEWS OF TF4 SAID “EVEN MAN OF STEEL’S SUPERMAN WLD LOOK @ THE DESTRUCTION IN THIS FILM & GO WHOA , NOW THAT IS JUST TOO MUCH —”

Romance writers do what they love, and they get paid for it. They hone their craft, like any other writer. They value their work, and they speak with an honest voice, telling the stories that they want to tell. I can’t imagine anything more feminist.

Writing Romance Fiction Is A Feminist Act by Danielle Summers. (via therumpus)

well except when the romance genre is all abt the mandatory cishet wasp babymaking give-up-yr-dreams to become the sub of an abusive jackass bc THAT IS WHAT ALL WOMEN WANT RLY EVEN IF THEY SAY NO narrative

plus bonus classism

plus loltastic lack of research on anything featured in the story

OH HAY WE ARE SO PROGRESSIVE THESE DAYS , WE HAVE SOME HEROINES WHO ARE ALLOWED TO KEEP THEIR JOBS AFTER THEY GET HITCHED & START THE BABYMAKING

& SOME HEROES WHO ARENT ACTUALLY RAPISTS THESE DAYS ! !  ok they may be creepy stalkers who dont take “no” for an answer BUT THEY JUST WEAR VIRGINAL HEROINE DOWN W NAGGING not actually forcing her now WE ARE SO PROGRESSIVE WE HAVE MOVED UP TO DUBCON ! ! also some of our heroines have GASP had sex before meeting alpha asshole hero BUT THEY DIDNT LIKE IT TILL THEY MET HIM so its still like being a virgin right ???

i used to read romances compulsively as crack / train wreck goggling when i was workin night shift & too brainfried to read anything serious

i used to try to keep track of / categorize the PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE / HISTORICALLY IMPOSSIBLE / DID NOT DO THE RESEARCH / OTHERWISE HOWLINGLY OFFENSIVE but it was impossible bc MOST OF THEM FAILED ON SO MANY LEVELS

& i have tried some of the ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT BETTERER ONES & nope just more of the same old YOU ARE ALL STRAIGHT & NATURAL SUBS JUST LONGING TO BE MADE PREGGERS BY A SQUARE JAWED —& RICH!!! — DUDE WHO DOESNT ACCEPT YR RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATION

also mystical fertility fixes BC A WOMAN WHO CANNOT HAVE TEH BABBIES IS INCOMPLETE & BROKEN & DEFECTIVE

& so nope im not gonna say that WRITING ROMANCES — as opposed to adventure stories that also have a love affair or more than 1 in them — IS INHERENTLY FEMINIST

any more than phyllis schlafly & ann coulter & the ladies against feminism tumblr are automatically feminist

just bc its a bunch of women doing what they like & maybe even gettin paid for it

bc if yr just preaching the morals of TWILIGHT & 50 SHADES only not so honestly , then yr either an antifeminist —if you actually believe that all fem protagonists shld be straight —& 99 percent of the time white — women who get legally bound to a dominant  upper class male & start havin babies right away & anything else is perverted HOW MANY VILLAINESSES IN ROMANCE NOVELS ARE EITHER “SLUTS” & THATS HOW YOU KNOW THEYRE THE BAD GIRLS — OR MESSED UP BC THEYRE BARREN EH?? bc good girls dont sleep arnd , enjoy sex , or want to have their ownlives doin their own things b4 havin kids , let alone not want kids @ all

or else a hypocrite selling rape culture lite & callin it empowerment to line yr own pockets

ITS NOT RAPE ITS “FORCED SEDUCTION” LOLSOB

(via tielan)

oh no — just discovered an ARMAGEDDON callout in PR

& since my allergies to bruce willis & michael bay combined to keep me from seeing any more of the movie than what i cldnt avoid seeing on TV screens in stores when it came out on video

i have no idea if there is more than one

but someone mentioned something as a goof / impossible / makes no sense moment on the IMDb entry , which i was looking thru bc so many critics have pointed out how bay blatantly recycled the human plotline from ARMAGEDDON that i figured i better check into it @ least briefly

given how much of AGE OF EXTINCTION he straight up ripped off from PACIFIC RIM

( which ironically has led a lot of reviewers to remark on how much better less awful it is than the previous 2 , wo realizing what was goin on — just WHOA IT SEEMS LIKE MICHAEL BAY PAID ATTN TO CRITICISM FOR THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF THE MOVIE @ LEAST or even more harshly WHOA IT ALMOST SEEMED LIKE MICHAEL BAY LEARNED HOW TO DIRECT @ LAST but nope hopes were dashed THO AS ALWAYS THE REVIEWS OF AWFUL MOVIES ARE MORE HILARIOUS THAN THE MOVIES THEMSELVES DESERVE

& the youtube reviews by disgruntled fans of TRANSFORMERS gen 1 are the best rebuff to bayfans who insist that only “art movie lover critics” who “hate fun ! ! ” cld have any objections to the bayhem

but yes THERE IS @ LEAST 1 MIRROR-REVERSAL (of the type “scn now makes sense where it didnt in the original” just like the scn w the alien serpent & the helmets & fleeing the monster in a straight line etc from PROMETHEUS )

but im not gonna say where it is until i have a chance to check it out myself

( but if anyone figures out which it is go ahead & post it , k?)

NSFW but a needed PSA re GLBT issues

shortest shorter explanation : PR is “WATCHMEN” vs THE WATCH

bc who wld YOU rather have on our side savin the world ,

adrian “IM ALEXANDER THE GREATER , NO WAIT RAMSES IS COOLER- IM GONNA SAVE THE WORLD FROM ITSELF BY DESTROYIN & REMAKIN IT INTO A NEW EDEN W MY HOMEBREW CTHULU / NUCLEAR DOOMSDAY FOR CITIES = PASTORAL FUTURE PLOT” veidt & doc “WHY SHLD I GIVE A DAMN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ? IM A GOD NOW” manhattan & the rest of that bunch of knaves & fools & villains w hero nametags

or the disgruntled disillusioned cynical ragtag posse of knaves & fools tryin their damndest to keep each other from falling into villainy —who may frequently FEEL like the world isnt worth it let alone @ the low wages they make

but always show up to save it from dragons & whatnot regardless

i know who i think does a better job of savin things @ least , than the guy his creator called the opposite of spock — which was correct even tho moore doesnt grok a thing abt mr spock , bc spock is & always was a big damn hero of the old fashioned unabashed honour & duty & love of his fellow sentients kind —even as he showed that yup he ttly despises superheroes & their fans & did so back when they were his sole bread & butter (x) thinkin himself the one true moral sophisticate in the genre surrounded by sheeple

( & adrian veidt SCUSE ME “OZYMANDIAS” BC CODE NAME “TWO VAST & TRUNKLESS LEGS OF STONE” DOESNT SOUND SO SHINY is ttly the SUPREME GRAND MASTER OF THE ELUCIDATED BRETHREN OF EBON NIGHT aka lupin squiggle wonse secretary to the patrician — & both of them already appeared in the monomyth as grigori in HB1 !)

EVANGELION bafflement NOW W BONUS PROMETHEUS & TF SNARK

everbright-mourning:

NGE, from what I hear, had a creator that wanted to punish Mecha fans and show the innate absurdity of the genre. Which got fans (god bless ‘em) writing all these deep meta essays trying to explain why it hurt your brain to watch it, when of course it hurt your brain b/c the creator was stomping all over accepted features of a mecha anime and calling all of them immature nerds. On a rapidly vanishing budget.

aha this was good practice / warmup for PROMETHEUS i see ! !

srsly when yr reduced to defending it by sayin ALL THE CHARAS ARE HORRIBLE OR UNLIKEABLE OR STUPID OR ALL OF THE ABOVE BC ITS SYMBOLIC — & when askd what its symbolic OF , respond w ditherings that wld do the faculty of unseen university proud , maybe its time to consider that THE CREATOR DOES NOT CONSIDER YOU , DEVOTED FAN #3672319502 , TO BE SUPERIOR TO THOSE OTHER HUMANS YOU CONSIDER HIM TO BE SATIRIZING BUT WHILE DEEMING YOU NOT PART OF THAT GENERAL SCORNWORTHYNESS ! !

& yes i did just see that some ppl consider michael bay to be mindlessly swiping from PROM in TF4 — but personally im pretty sure just based on stills & things in general , that its not a mindless shoutout but a sort of solidarity gesture btwn bay & scott just like scott havin his catwoman knockoff makin out w a YELLOW sports car in THE COUNSELOR — BC I HAVE NOW ISOLATED 3 POINTS OF GENUINE CONGRUENCE VIA MIRRORING THAT EXIST BTWN PR & TF3 , which nobody has pointed out , not even the bayhem fans who dismissed PR as just a wannabe bayformers but obv wo bothering to try to prove the claim

& again it is interesting to me to see the non overlap of fandoms , bc obv PR fandom doesnt have a high %age of TF3 viewers , & ive already noticed that professional movie critics dont have good pattern recon skillz ! — but the 2 critical things , 1 i had forgotten & 1 i didnt know till just now are 1 . TRANSFORMERS was originally also a marvel property like BLADE meaning its part of del toros multiverse automatically , 2 . TF3 dragged in a horrible twisted version of WRATH OF KHAN & a parody of the kobayashi maru scenario , w a mirrorverse sentinel prime as the canon good former king prime who taught optimus & was murdered by his student modred megatron , here a callous traitor in the mode of “wicked old mentor faking kindly concern” beloved by the order of the golden fedora — & voiced by leonard nimoy himself w a chara design modeled on sean connery

which last actually makes sense if bay was doin a backatcha on behalf of the windmill-giants guillermo was tiltin @ in HB2 bc of the MUMMY 3 satire elements , & rob cohen bein the director of DRAGONHEART & all

plus after orci & kurtzmann threw him under the bus re the racist stereotype autobots (x) im not surprised bay put a TREK parody in - thing is he cld hardly parody it more than they did w their ‘reboot’ (OBV THEY THINK ‘REBOOT’ IN THE SENSE THE HIGH ENERGY MAGIC DEPT DOES AKA ‘LETS GIVE IT A GOOD KICKING ’ )

& im abt to watch the EXODUS: GODS & KINGS trailer , no idea what bits im gonna spot swiped from team resistance by sah ridley , but @ this point nothing surprises me @ all

& knowin the STAR TREK fixfic in PR wasnt just random LETS FIX SOME SCREWED UP MYTHS ! but that it was a deliberate risin to the occasion of deliberate baiting by team wall , makes me feel oddly happy & even MORE optimistic abt what team shatterdome will do next ( & i think i have found the very passage from GUARDS! GUARDS! that shows how they worked the shatterdome as camelot trick in the 1st place — & exactly whose the infamous greaved boots are … .^_^)

EVANGELION bafflement

so do all the ppl who claim that PR is just a rip off of NGE bc it has mecha fighting kaiju

not realize that there was this show called GO-LION aka LION VOLTRON decades before NGE was made ?? the mecha in NGE arent rly mecha ?? theyre cloned kaiju w control units , which arent robots in any sense except the ancient RUR one , & since when has “mecha” meant “flesh golem wearin armor” not BIG CLANKING METAL ANDROID OR VAGUELY ANTHROPOMORPHIC CREATURE W RIVETS & ENGINES & DID I MENTION BEING MADE OF METAL LIKE SHIPS not vatgrown monsters w mahouts carryin siege weapons

NGE is a kaiju vs kaiju show NOT a classic mecha show @ all , it only fits the TOEI / GUNDAM / MACROSS def if you throw out everything except size as a qualifier for “mecha”

in which case ALL THE GODZILLA MOVIES — NOT JUST MECHA-GODZILLA & ALL THE OTHER KAIJU MOVIES , ARE ALSO “MECHA” SHOWS

( & the definition of “mecha ” is ttly meaningless )

so apparently TF4 starts w an old 007 riff-or-ripoff

…framing the opening of the main plot w “tessa yeagers” (underage , did you miss that shes underage just like juliet ???) bare legs like the poster from FOR YOUR EYES ONLY - the one that followed MOONRAKER the 007 movie w the space shuttle (x) -

& in addition to the messedup controllin father vs boyfriend rivalry for possession of tessa - which even bay fans are decryin as a rehash of ARMAGEDDONs father-daughter-wannabe SIL triangle — bein framed as “shakespearean” via the R&J law wallet card 

plus all the flying boats & helicopters & whatnot ive already called out as more of bay thumb-biting @ team resistance

i realized thru more reviews that — altho its sorta inevitable given BAYFORMERS —i mixed up some of the new autobots in TF4 , the autobot “hound” who has been changed to look like one of the dwarves from peter jacksons movies & given a “cigar” like hellboy or wolverine , is NOT the 1 w the trenchcoat / longcoat — that 1 is the sniper  “crosshairs” who oc is nothing like the chara in the cartoons & comics

but who IS portrayed as a paratrooper & voiced by john dimaggio the guy who voiced bender on FUTURAMA but also had a secondary part in the english dub of MONONOKE HIME

SO YEAH IM GONNA SAY THAT BAY IS PLAYIN THE GAME OF MIRRORS ( & failing bc nobody is gettin it @ all , except 1 review @ screenrant i saw agreed that “cade yeager” sounded like a jab @ PR , & 1 or 2 who said that the boats flung arnd streets looked like bay rippin off PR , which doesnt scream SUCCESSFUL SATIRE to me esp since all its defenders are in the camp of ITS SUPPOSED TO BE STUPID BC ITS SF / A KIDS MOVIE / MICHAEL BAY )

bc yes choosin the TF sequel he wasnt even gonna make & didnt start casting till PR was almost out , to be the 1 where he finally decided to use the dinobots that he claimed to h8 & then make them into dragon / kaiju mounts , but also to introduce not only the japanese-styled robot BUT the paratrooper autobot , when one of the costars of PR was also in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN

& looking back over the timelin e on the charts , i incline to think that the exchange of fire began earlier , w TF2 in 2009 , altho im not 100 per sure why bay took HELLBOY 2 : THE GOLDEN ARMY as an attack on him to start w

i mean yes it has an army of robots

but theyre abt as far from autobots / decepticons in style & origins as poss

theyre identical & not autonomous nor in any way individual , obeying whoever has the one ring crown that controls them wo any loyalties

they look like skeletons — invoking JASON & THE ARGONAUTS & the dragons-tooth warriors of cadmus of the myths — & also a little bit like the golden trilobites of house heterodyne , but a lot more like the garthrim from DARK CRYSTAL , which makes sense if its as i think , in part a retort agnst KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL

& yes spielberg is listed as a coproducer of TF2 so i can kind of see a chain of associations there

bc TF2 is the one where they go to egypt for no obv reason , where ive said b4 that i think HB2 is skewering MUMMY 3 & its orientalizing just as PR retorted to it & its daddy issues , w martini & kazinski restaging rob cohens claim that rachel weisz left bc she wldnt play the mom of a 20-something bc vain women amirite lol ? & there is A SHARD OF THE DARK CRYSTAL THE ALLSPARK as a major plot point of a storyline that “homages” spielbergs own CLOSE ENCOUNTERS back when

so the back-&-forth gets pushed back a little further

& the complications grow bc i have a lot more sense of what is goin on w ridley scott & russell crowes ROBIN HOOD - & yes it is def part of the exchange of hostilities — & A BIG PART REVOLVES ARND scotts “d-day mirror image invasion of dover” that mystified casual fans & medievalists alike in that movie

bc wtf did he do a historically incredible “SAVING PRIVATE RYAN” sequence in it ?? but if this is all part of an alliance of TEAM WINDMILL vs TEAM RESISTANCE then yeah it fits

from just what can be seen via telescope , exchanges of 8 pounders & signal flags

as does martini havin played also on CSI a former special forces soldier named lukas , driven mad by havin obeyed orders to shoot civilian bystanders to a mission — incl children

which fits too well w a certain set of olympian myths … .

& personally i STILL dont see the background imagery evocation of the coliseum in HB2 in the market , as a shot fired @ GLADIATOR necc , since the staging of that fight sets it up as a ref to a diff sword-and-sandal film , QUO VADIS

but i also have reread a certain discworld book which came out the following year

& in which the reuse of an ancient amphitheatre for not bloodless ,but still , less bloody , forms of ritual sacrifice is used as part of the over all theme of A WORLD STRIVING TO GROW LESS CRUEL , MORE WISE , OVER THE AGES

which —& there are some other things i see as fitting in w , if not actually intended to be tied 2 , the del toro monomyth — is def part of the same ethos that gave us “PUTTING ASIDE OLD RIVALRIES” & using the arts of war for collective defense not fratricide any longer

& if there are as i think many expressions of things the artists themselves believe in their works , bc death of the author all very well but that doesnt mean living authors dont have their say too ! ! then yes , ridley scott along w cormac mccarthy & yes michael bay & alan moore & the whole fedora brotherhood , rly are fin de siecle apres nous le deluge bitter nihilists who think that the end of civilization is coming & the only hope if there is any wld lie in a restoration of anglo-american empire w all the white dudebro machismo that implies

but failing that “rescue” , which seems more & more unlikely , just party till the oceans cover us , w our billions & our mansions (srsly read the quotes on the imdb page for THE COUNSELOR … .)

i think that ridley scott is well aware that all del toros movies are takes on A TALE OF TWO CITIES

but i think he is resigned to bein monsieur le marquis for the rest of his days & hopes not to see the next 14th of july whenever it comes —I DONT MEAN THE LITERAL 14TH i mean THE NEXT BASTILLE STORMING

against which we have sir terry & guillermo & sir kenneth & all their cohorts of artists who have served in the painful field for years of diligent TV & stage work & ever so many small parts , doing the thankless work that better connected & less competent & lazy big names get credit & cash for , who still declare UNLESS SOUL CLAP ITS HANDS & SING against the skeksis writing off of the future embodied in the glorification of cruelty & sexism & racism in the name of “retro”

bc we must be better than our predecessors & creators , as lord vetinari says

m2manga:

I am very much looking forward to the new Sailor Moon and after roaming tumblr was absolutely smitten with Marek Jarocki’s Armored Sailor Moon design.
I had a think about what Sailor Moon would be in a fantasy RPG and came to a Cleric as even though she has many items, one of them is the crescent moon healing wand.

Neoclassical problems

stuckinabucket:

We’re all familiar with the sexy-armor problem, right?  You play a game or watch a show or flip through some art, and if there’s a lady in armor, it’s like the least useful suit of protective gear ever conceived of.

(NSFW under the cut)

stuckinabucket is not joking abt the NSFW but its all stuff youd see in a museum or art history class anyways

so i guess if you work in a museum or teach art history go right ahead

the text is LOLTASTIC

& agn michael bay confirms my PR theories

it is interesting how each reviewer notices something different abt a book or a film & some things will show up on everyones radar as huge & other things slip thru the cracks xcept 1 person or 2 will be struck by it & point it out as relevant , or just weird

& it turns out to be a HUGE factor even if it seems like it was nothing

once you put it into the big picture , its like its the eye of the t-rex in yr jigsaw puzzle ( there ARE dinosaur jigsaw puzzles , right ? there shld be even if there werent any when i was a kid & i dont recall seeing any @ the fancy puzzle stores in the malls ) & not just a little random blob after all

one of those things , like everyone going WHY IS PRIME SUDDENLY A KNIGHT W ARMOR & A SWORD NOW ??? WHY ARE THE DINOBOTS UNSPEAKING DRAGONS NOW ??? idkwtfbay — which is obv to me if he is makin a counter-pacific rim & YES THERE IS NAME MAGIC GOING ON IN THAT TOO w the law of similars , initial (both meanings ) letters matching i wld speculated BC LIKE I SAID BACK WHEN , CAMELOT’S IN CATHAY THESE DAYS

anothr of them was bay throwin multiple boats arnd the streets which you can see in the trailers , along w movin the action to china THIS ISNT EVEN TRYIN TO BE SNEAKY ( where most reviewers didnt see the arthurian parallels in PR so dont see then in TF4 either )

& then theres the one i just read abt yest where apparently john goodman — MONSTERS INC , THE PRINCESS & THE FROG , THE EMPERORS NEW GROOVE — who plays bays version of hound as a cigar chomping antisocial fighter who is depicted looking like a dwarf from one of the movies — is using his “ROBOT SANTA” voice from the FUTURAMA ep he was in

so yeah bay IS doin the sympathetic-magic-by-free-association casting thing that sah ridley scott tried when he cast charlize theron — MONSTER , MIRROR MIRROR — as vickers (ie vicars) made up to look like angela from THE OFFICE w the first name of her coworker meredith the mrs ogg of the show

IT DOESNT WORK IF YOU DONT BELIEVE , NO MATTER HOW FANCY YR ATHAME IS & HOW MUCH YOU PAID FOR IT , A KITCHEN KNIFE IS BETTER ALL ROUND

which is why nobody is gettin it as a parody / satire / ripoff of PACIFIC RIM the way nobody got PROMETHEUS as a parody / satire / ripoff of HELLBOY & TITANIC & MUMMY just as obscurantist mess

( oh & I JUST SAW THAT RACHEL WEISZ PLAYED HYPATIA (! ! ! ) IN A MOVIE BY “THE OTHERS” DIRECTOR ALEJANDRO AMENABAR THAT ALSO FEATURED RUPERT EVANS AKA JOHN MYERS FROM HELLBOY (x) but also had hella diverse casting for the main cast

which answers the question of 1 DEGREE ? yep 1 degree from guillermo for the MUMMY star & 2 for daniel craig CONFIRMED )

but what it succeeds in doin for us @ least is proving that bay — or his minion ehren kruger — agrees that PR is HOGFATHER fic , & that wld seem to confirm that ridley scott was deliberately not accidentally setting up the discworld mirror imagery of PROMETHEUS

—the way that sah ridley havin put cameron diaz-as-cheetah-woman makin out w a YELLOW sports car in a movie where javier bardem plays a wildly-dressed drug dealer who — yes ! just saw this clip on mark kermodes review — talks abt rats , along w ppl welding a tank in a scn stolen from CRONOS , says that scott knows that PR is an anti-TF fixfic & that SKYFALL was made to set it up & theyre onto him but hes onto them and—

he thinks hes gonna do something significant in the way of counterspelling , by casting batman & ellen ripley as moses & his stepmom in EXODUS: GODS & KINGS

but he doesnt realize that team shatterdome beat him to it , brazen as serpents —

& oh yes REVIEWERS ARE MYSTIFIED BY THE PRESENCE OF A LENGTHY FIGHT SCN IN AN ELEVATOR IN “TRANS4MERS”

im not

i think its hilarious that bay like scott is scrabbling to subvert del toros film & succeeding the way that a small child succeeds in mocking someone by stickin out their tongue , drawin a scribble & sayin “THIS IS YOUUUU”

bc i figured out why everythings generic PPDC imprinted commissary stuffs that we see of objects that are branded in PR

even the helicopters are slightly in disguise PELICAN-class coast guard versions of SEA KINGS bwahah PAINTED BLACK

bc EVERYTHING MICHAEL BAY DOES IS A COMMERCIAL W HELLA PRODUCT PLACEMENT which yeah guillermo called out in his descr of PR as not bein like one of those recruiting adverts filmed like car commercials BUT PPL WERE COMPLAINING ABT THE TF MOVIES BEING EXPLICITLY GM COMMERCIALS FROM THE START like okay how can we go MORE cynical than a half hr cartoon made to sell kids toys MAKE IT A FEATURE-LENGTH PRODUCT PLACEMENT FOR BIG BOYS TOYS

& when called on that by fans & reviewers alike WE DONT WANT TO SEE AN AD FOR A CAMERO WE WANT TO SEE THE CHARA BUMBLEBEE LOOKIN & ACTING LIKE BUMBLEBEE !  ! !

what did bay do but double down ? ? ? & now TF4 has moments when they stop the action & insert a bud lite ad , or a victorias secret ad , or ads for popular chinese brands — & some reviewers like grantland think this is some sort of bay self-mockery or mea culpa for dragging film discourse down all these yrs , but that wld require bay to have some humility & conscience

& PAIN & GAIN shows that he has neither

what it DOES show is that he doesnt understand what del toro was doin by havin a visible BABE RUTH candy bar in HB1 or a TECATE can in HB2

what the significance of those 2 brands is , far beyond “product placement” & even beyond what wld be accomplished by

bc like i said back when CHOCOLATE = THEOBROMA = THE FOOD OF THE GODS & GODKINGS = THE NECTAR & AMBROSIA OF AMERICA

but makin it a BABY RUTH bar says multiple things

bc “RUTH” = “MERCY”

so there is a spelling-out of what we are seeing there , as trevor is showing mercy to the innocent child of our ancient enemies , the lovecraftian elder gods , it is THE APPROPRIATE GIFT OF WELCOME

but RUTH IS ALSO A FEMININE NAME

famously THE DAUGHTER-NOT-BY-BLOOD OF NAOMI in the book of scripture named for her

& the candy bar was historically clamed to have been named for the daughter of a president

but was the nickname of a male sports hero whose family-of-origin was a shambles & whose later success was due to the foster-father-cleric who mentored him in sports & who was harassed for not looking white enf & also for being left handed

yeah

its not a coincidence that the boat-bat-club is wielded lefty in PR

IT WAS A SIGN just like the wrapper was & also of the nonbinary nature of del toros charas , even the most macho appearing ones

the way that trevors cane ties him both to the fisher king & to carmen 1 in BACKBONE the way that his cigar box of rosaries ties him to carlos 

& that his rosary is a buddhist symbol as much as a catholic one

bc wrist is NOT how catholics wear prayer beads when they do , altho wearing is discouraged or was when i was young — still is , it looks like (x) bc JEWELRY IS VANITY & DISRESPECTFUL !! SACRILEGE ! !

altho for some reason rosary RINGS are okay devotionals altho i never knew any body who actually wears em bc theyre ugly & hella uncomfortable & impractical (x)

but for some reason its ok to wear medals arnd yr neck & medals are yes SPIRITUAL PROTECTION BUT NOT RPT NOT MAGIC omg

their dogtags

w the dove-eagle-phoenix

RELIGIOUS AMULETS just like the engravings on their pauldron are the signs of the grail knights from eschenbach

& i rly wonder more than ever if raleigh kept his tags when he went prodigal
& if so was he wearin them all along
or put them back on when he got to HK

or if stacker & tendo kept them for him & left them in his cabin for him to find

bc the scn is set so we cant tell , we dont see him take his shirt off only that he is wearing them as he moves into makos / our view

& it wld be equally emotional & significant which of the 3 optns it was WRITERS PROMPT

but anyway THE FACT THAT RED DRINKS BEER IN HB2 isnt a hurdy hur joke

but a tie back to the beer vats in the beginning of BLADE 2

which itself was a callout to european mythology & the cauldrons of wisdom & rebirth along w FULL FATHOM FIVE THY FATHER LIES

but also to egypt & the story of sekhmets appeasement by trickery

so theres a series of SAILOR MOON adventures that involves THE GRAIL

YEAH

WILL NEVER STOP LAUGHING @ THE SNEAKINESS OF TEAM RESISTANCE

ALTHO THERE IS SOMETHING EVEN MORE OUTRAGEOUS THEY DID

EVEN CHEEKIER THAN ELBA WEARING THE DOCTORS SNEAKERS / MAKOS SHOES TO A TV INTERVIEW WHILE THEY WERE FILMING PR

& i finally have confirmation bc sam neill & sean connery & ahahaha OH GOD YOU GUYS & YR SHAKESPEARE FIXFICS STOP IT—

NO WAIT I MEAN KEEP GOING—

( but it is SO WRONG & so wonderful too )
