MBTI: DC characters are hard to type

You might have noticed the amount of Marvel characters over DC (or any other company) on this site. There are a few reasons for that. One is that I grew up with Marvel and I’m much more familiar with them. So it’s natural to do more research on top of what I already know to definitively (or at least confidently) type their characters.

But that’s not really it. It has more to do with the style of the way the characters are written, and what sets them apart from other companies in the same industry. Continue reading

Though I guess any writer who knows how to bring in the readers would have made it sound like both of those posts just to get everybody. But that ain’t me.

Haven’t been reviewing movies, been playing Metal Gear Solid V. Haven’t been eating much, been playing Metal Gear Solid V. Ironically, now that I’ve gone out in public again to watch a movie, I’d lost all my friends and had to go alone. Sucks for them, this movie is great.

I don’t like to throw out the generalized version of my opinion in the header but it is what it is. This one won’t be for everybody and the themes that run through it are sure to turn off viewers looking for something a bit less “grey” but as far as a quality film goes, specifically one that has something to say, this is a great choice. What do you expect from the director of Prisoners? I’m even loving the poster. Continue reading
