MBTI: Fuu- ESFJ

Of all the characters in Samurai Champloo, Fuu has the least action yet she’s the only one that’s keeping the story on track. If the show were solely about Mugen and Jin, it wouidn’t have lasted long because they would’ve killed each other and that would be the end of it.

Instead, we’ve got the ESFJ keepin’ it together, no matter how much the trio hate it. Continue reading

MBTI: Typing the “Insane”

After typing so many characters, some historical figures, people I know and inanimate objects, it has come to my attention that often times characters will get labeled “insane” and thereby rendered untypable.

How valid is this? That an insane character can’t typed? Or more interestingly- what qualifies a character as insane? A couple conversations with a few people recently have made me feel the need to address this. Serious issues, people! Serious issues. Continue reading

It’s always been my biggest fear to be labeled a sexist, and I will do everything in my power to avoid that title.

If that means typing an all female cast from a movie I don’t even really care about on my little-known site, then so be it. If it means smearing myself with peanut-butter and running down my street screaming “I’M RUNNING FROM THE CLOTHES DEMON! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD HELP ME! WHY IS NO ONE DOING ANYTHING?!” Well, then I already did that. Continue reading

Stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jenna Malone, Sam Claflin

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some frightening images, thematic elements, a suggestive situation and language, Running time 146 minutes, Sci-Fi/Action/Adventure

Compare to: Rollerball (1975), Battle Royale (2000)

While everybody waits for the “next big thing” right around the corner, any Hunger Games promos have already found their place in pop culture, not needing to fight for anymore support than they already have. While Beautiful Creatures and Mortal Instruments have come and gone, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been eagerly awaited by fans since it’s first installment last year.

Does it surpass, or even live up to the first? Or is this example of another series that drops out on quality now that it’s fanbase is secure and a third is already on the way? Continue reading

Spoilers!

Stars: Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, Vithaya Pansringarm

Rated R for strong bloody violence including grisly images, sexual content and language , Running time 90 minutes, 2013, Crime/Drama/Thriller

Compare to: The American (2010), I Saw The Devil (2010)

Now, I use this title with caution. Most of the movies in this category are things that you may have to jump a mental hurdle or two to get out of what may be your normal movie-watching headspace; if you do that, you should love just about everything on this list. Continue reading

X-Men and MBTI at the Movies

Someone give them a hand, these ladies look fabulous, don't they? Flat top on the right, I'm loving your sass!

Someone give them a hand, these ladies look fabulous, don’t they? Flat top on the right, I’m loving your sass!

There’s a little man telling me to remind some of you guys of my older articles in case you’ve forgotten. And since I’ve typed several X-Men at this point (screw you Wolverine!), might as well rack up the list. It’s a point of pride to have this many done but it’s also sad in a way. I mean, how much time should one man devote to this kind of work? ALL OF IT

Also, I’ve just seen the trailer for the newest X-Men Movie and it looks awful. But what do I know in comparison to the almighty Bryan Singer, who uses some of my favorite stories to tell the world “Being gay is tough!” An anti-bigotry message? Sign me up. Fifty years summed up by “What I wouldn’t give to be normal, Bobby!” Nah.

Of all days to mention this, the most recent issue of Uncanny involves a student coming out of closet. What’s DC going to do to keep up?!?

GIVE THEM ROBIN, DC! JUST GET IT OVER WITH! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO! And not some “Alternate Universe/3rd Earth” version or whatever. Lotta people not reading comics are demanding more gayness from you guys.

Magneto

Cyclops

Storm

Jean Grey

Nightcrawler

Colossus

And lastly, something that has nothing to do with X-Men but everything to do with MBTI and entertainment, I bring you…MBTI: …and the Movies, Part II.

MBTI: Colossus- ISFJ

colossus

Sweet, kind, and a bunch of other adjectives I hate to use but are appreciable as qualities, Colossus can also crush your head like a grape. If there were ever a type that should be able to become composed entirely of metal at will…I shudder at what could be with an ISFJ.

Sure, they’re reliable, dependable, and nice all around- but that moodiness- woo! I’d stay away from creating an enemy in that one. For fear of wondering what it was you said if nothing else. Let’s read about my main metal man, Piotr Rasputin. Continue reading
