No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.

Looks like DC finally realized that Bucky is better than Dick at everything and now they’re turning Dicky boy into a spy.
Sorry Boy Wonder, there’s only room for one former sidekick turned super spy, and it isn’t gonna be you.
They’re at different publishers, so I think there’s “room” for both of them? Sort of like there’s “room” for both Thanos and Darkseid, Hawkeye and Green Arrow, Iron Man and Batman, and all sorts of other very-similar-when-it-comes-down-to-it characters?
Dick’s actually pretty cool? And not the current Boy Wonder anyway? And his existence doesn’t negate, detract from, or even derive from Bucky’s existence or current storylines?
I don’t get the OP.
Sentinels of the Multiverse is a game that I would very much like to see played on Tabletop - lots of fun to play as superheroes and team up to defeat a villain…
My brother and I played with 2 heroes each (Ra, Tachyon, Expatriette and Visionary), against Omnitron…
It was a tough fight but after a couple of hours, we managed to defeat him…very close call, as you can tell by this scorekeeper we use…
You guys should definitely give it a go…
I’ve been saying this for ages.
Sentinels would be great for an episode of tabletop.
"What would I give for a playboy who couldn’t keep it in his pants, and who runs through women? What I have is a son who shows no interest in them. What you do at night with your boys, after your show of skirt-chasing, is a disgrace."
Kings was seriously ahead of its time.
Give it a watch if you can find it.

Think of it this way…
The Avengers are every person you see in high school.
The shy nerd
The asshole you just can’t hate
The hot foreign guy
The quiet guy who’s always playing guitar and probably smoking something
His bitchy/bad ass girlfriend (depending on if she likes you or not)
The emo kid that somehow gets all the chicks
And that one cheerleader that EVERYONE knows has a hard-on for the athlete
Weird, my HS had a lot more women, LGBT people, and POC in it.
