    What you're saying is nonsense because it's two different things in the movie people are complaining about.

    The mere presence of a pride badge and a character with two mothers is enough to send the right into a frothing mess. All people are saying on here is that the film's disappointing in its depiction of women. If anything it's worse because even though they're making these big strides towards progressive values up front, in the background they let their female characters down so badly just by doing the same thing Hollywood always does. 

     

    Men = Big fighters and clever thinkers. 

    Women = Sad Mums who just want to be mums. 

    The two angles aren't remotely mutually exclusive. 

    Yes but its politics at the end of the day.

    I think we’re at the point now that we can safely dismiss the opinion of anyone who uses the word “woke” in that context.

     

    Its a stupid blanket term I know, but it still stands that there's people on the right calling it that  and yet here there are people are saying the opposite and not being progressive enough.

     

    I mean people this is a movie and not a TV series, there are so many things you can add and its a mess already.

    Which is an appalling way of putting it, but given the desire to avoid a spoiler…

     

    surely the point of the illuminati is that they were purely caricatures: only X really got to do anything, and it didn’t end well for him either. I remember Krasinkisi rising up into the air to be torn into a thousand shreds, but he didn’t say anything particularly meaningful or memorable. And god knows who was to the right of black bolt.

     

    sometimes I think we look for bad stuff that simply isn’t there: she’s just another character, being treated exactly the same way as the other four of them.

     

    I agree, I don't think I heard anyone talking about Maria acting too black except here.

    Not a huge diff in load speeds between ssd and micro sd card so no reason you can't get the 64gb and expand with micro sd for cheap

     

    What happens if I want to install Windows later on etc?.  Will that still be possible?. I do have a 512GB microsd card but not sure and I don't want to order one and make a mistake.

  5. Finding the whole series vastly underwhelming, the foundation is there to be great. However, the episodes are so condensed with around 5 mins of recapping and getting the viewer to speed that everything else just feels so rushed that I'm left unsatisfied. If the episodes were longer, or make them a 2 episodes for each character would have been better. The What If comics are great, but just series doesn't really do it for me and I was a big fan of this when it was announced.

  6. I can't believe how much subtitles I had to read.......and I loved it. Some of the translation wasn't accurate to some of the people in the audience.

     

    Great fun, final battle was just copy and paste. Tony Leung is the best. Going to watch Infernal Affairs again.
