  1. I think another key issue is the international market and otherwise increasing cultural diversity of hollywoods market, especially china. Subtilty does not translate well, so hollywood needs simple storylines and jokes. Superheroes provide that, simple action stories with straightforward twists and punchlines. A chinamen will appreciate fancy cgi fighting the same as an american as it is not heavily culturaly dependent.

    It would be interesting to hear thoughts and analysis of the prog stack and the democratic coalition which you referenced in your “beige” Bernie.

    LOL at the X-Men arcade game at the movies, so true. Brings back the memories. I loved the Spider-Man 70s tv show as a kid. Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield were both totally wrong for that role, and I’m sure this new one will suck, too. They can’t seem to get the right actor for the part. Actually, the ultimate comic book movie would be a movie about Comic Book Guy. Ryan, what real-life actor do you think would be a good fit for that role?

  6. I can’t fathom a serious person, over the age of 12, reading comic books, watching superhero movies, playing video games, listening to pop music, etc.

      This reminds me that the best way to influence america on a local level would be to control a theater. It wouldn’t be a good way, but there aren’t many options
      If someone bought one, attracted people with the popular movies, and threw in some subversive ones, a distinct ideological culture could be formed, as the basis for an eventual regional identity.
      Theaters, newspapers, and local media are about the only significant way to act locally with regard to the media. Unfortunately, these seem to be monopolized so far.

  7. What/Who is T B QUA? He talks about in 1:51 minute mark.
