    I already watched Iron Fist season two. Improved a bunch in certain areas, but aside from Ward probably becoming of my favorite MCU supporting characters I still don't think it's become a truly good show. Only a tolerable one. I think all of the main characters could have been handled better and had lost potential, which I can get deeper into if you want to talk about it.

    I have not started Better Call Saul. I'm waiting until the current season is finished to marathon it. Hell, I might even still wait until season five is announced. Who knows? I have a lot of other media in general to catch up with too so I don't mind putting that on the back burner.

    Sorry if I went off on a random tangent there.So yeah. About Wreck-It Ralph, we got a new trailer that FINALLY shows what the main conflict will be about!

    Spoiler:


    Also, the movie will delve into the positive/negative aspects of the internet and Ralph's insecurities from deciding to base his self-esteem on how his best friend likes him at the end of the first film. Which I really appreciate in hindsight, especially since I've acted like that too.If the film delves into how Vanellope might be becoming another Turbo, then I think this film's conflicts can be REALLY good. I'm seriously loving what this film is focusing on. Which is why I REALLY don't want it go for an "ADS ARE BAD" moral like you suggested. It can be tackled in a scene or two, just not as the sole big takeaway from the movie.

    I can definitely see blue lady being a twist villain, but I hope her motivations are interesting than ads.

    I... really don't want Wreck-It Ralph 2's message to focus on being anti-ads/hyper-consumerism. That is such an easy forgettable message. One that was already the point in Ready Player One, a movie I hated for having bland characters, a world where none of the locations and inhabitants sync up with each other and is more of a random smorgasbord of shallow nostalgia bait, not using its themes/premise/cameos cleverly enough, and basing geek credibility on pissing contests where not liking "lame" series and knowing random trivia/fun facts about entertainment media makes you superior to other "fake" geeks.

    That movie is such a superficial stereotypical take on geeks like The Big Bang Theory sitcom and wastes so much of its potential that I hate Hate HATE it so much. Especially since my series idea that I told you once about and you probably barely remember tackles similar themes. If anything, that movie only accurately shows the toxic parts of geek fandoms.

    I've always been curious about the Batman and Robin stories, so I might check them out. Although personally, I don't really care about the Bat-Family. I don't think they occupy enough unique niches and are always in Bruce's shadow too much to be interesting enough for me. Unless they occupy a different town away from Gotham, but even those stories tend to not be as good or significant as Batman's, and they are always at Batman's beck and call for his issues but not vice-versa.

    I read the first issue of New Super-Man a couple years ago though. The premise of having a bully become a superhero intrigued me a LOT, and I am always game for foreign heroes and locales. But I never bought any of the succeeding issues, sadly. Maybe I can remedy that now though.

    Why Disney's twist villains don't work:

    It's cool. I had those several times throughout my summer. Feel free to chat it up as much as you like.

    I just watched a recent video about good and bad Disney twist villains. Then it reminded me of Ernesto de la Cruz in Coco. And now I remember how disappointed I was by the movie going for such a safe villain route about catching a murderer like a Scooby-Doo cartoon instead of a compelling conflict solely about family obligation vs artistic dreams. And also and the great grandma getting with the great grandpa again in a totally dysfunctional forced cliche way that reminds me of how awful my parents' marriage is.

    Every trailer for Wreck-It Ralph 2 has no sign of plot motivation or conflict and only focuses on self-conscious Disney references. So I'm worried about that movie. A lot.

    Which comics I'm reading? Not as much as I used to, that's for sure.

    Right now, I'm following the new IDW Sonic the Hedgehog series, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Immortal Hulk. I'll probably read The Superior Octopus once it starts in October because I loved Superior Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus.

    I'm actually not reading any DC comics. I don't know which series are written well enough to interest me. I'm tempted to try Justice League only because of the recent Legion of Doom arc.

    I need to buy the third compendium for Image Comics' Invincible superhero series. And I have wanted to reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics for years but never have the money to do it. Maybe this Christmas I can finally do it. I also want to but all of the IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, but that will cost a lot too.

    If we're counting manga too, then I'm currently reading One Piece, My Hero Academia, Berserk, Dr. Stone, and Noah's Notes. Although I haven't read the last two in a long while.

    When I told my parents I was agnostic earlier this year, they didn't get angry at me, but got worried enough to keep badgering me with talks and texts quoting scriptures, asking me how I could not believe in Jesus' supernatural abilities, warning me about not going to Hell, and asking if I had any sense of ethics without the Bible's guidances. I don't judge them too harshly since I know they were only looking out for my well-being, but I still found it a bit insulting how they questioned my capacity for intuitive compassion like that. They stopped a few months ago, fortunately.

    I prefer having an existentialist perspective on life. However, I do respect religious people who are tolerant and find fulfillment in their beliefs. They have every right to believe in what they want to believe if they don't force that on others, and religious followings can help people a lot if moderated properly. I do like how humble and peaceful churches feel as communal sanctuaries.

    I tried believing in God as a child and even wore a gold crucifix necklace for a year. But my experiences with my cynical atheist cousins and learning about the selfish vindictive acts God has supposedly done make me not want to believe in a divine being like that. I also don't like the idea of innocent compassionate people going to Hell just because they don't see any rational evidence in God existing, or how our morality has to be based on some random scriptures instead of using our own tangible conscience and intellect to become decent people through experience.
