Peter Suderman Nails Snyder’s Watchmen

I love a great review.  In what follows Peter Suderman manages to sum up the core problem of Snyder’s film version of Watchmen in less a paragraph: The sensibility behind it is puerile in the extreme.

Feminism and Vampires

Feministing breaks down Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Twilight, and True Blood for their implicit (and explicit) views on sex.  While comparing and contrasting True Blood and Twilight, Latoya Peterson drops this tidbit, which is the first thing to make me curious to peek at Twilight (though I’m 99% sure I still won’t): In both series, [Read More...]
