The Witcher Does Fantasy Sex (Mostly) Better

Fantasy movies, shows, video games, and books that are geared toward an adult audience tend to repeat the same mistakes when it comes to how they portray sexuality – exploiting female bodies while adhering to archaic notions of what sex was like in the Middle Ages in Europe.

I Am Hooked on Riverdale Cringe Videos

I mostly watch Riverdale nowadays to make fun of it, and I don’t think I’m the only one. In fact, I can’t imagine there’s anyone out there who actually takes this show seriously anymore, including the show itself (with the occasional exception, like the Luke Perry tribute episode). Once you put a cult leader in a rocket, there’s really nowhere else you can go. But now, I may not even have to watch the episodes to get my Riverdale fill. I’ve found another way. Read More >>

The Rise of Skywalker Writer Says Rey Reveal ‘Doesn’t Negate’ The Last Jedi’s Message

“Let the past die, kill it if you have to.” That was the takeaway from The Last Jedi, and a message that was largely lost in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which felt preoccupied with its own legacy. This was perhaps most notable in the reveal about Rey, one that seemed to conflict with director Rian Johnson’s vision of Star Wars.
