Bond Ain’t A Black Woman, Blade Ain’t A White Boy

Posted in Videos! with tags , , on 06/03/2016 by McCutcheon

While us Americans are so hung up on political correctness, the British franchise of Bond keeps their title character a British white guy and that just annoys the living hell out of publications that look to play the savior for readers who love to play the victim.

Changing the race or gender of a character for the sake of change itself does nothing to advance the character or the story. Hinging the progression of a group of people on a franchise you don’t care about means it’s time to rethink your priorities. Some characters and these traits are interchangeable, many are not.

If you’re a fan and you’re open to say, Idris Elba playing the role, you’ve already set yourself apart from the people I’m talking about because you’re an actual fan.

MBTI: Q- INTP

Posted in MBTI Rationals, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , on 09/01/2015 by McCutcheon

Q

It’s been a while since I tackled the walking brain that is the INTP. And for a while I didn’t care about typing Q because I was never sure if he was ENTP or INTP. The older a character/person is, the more difficult it can be to type because, with any stroke of luck, they’ll begin to balance out. So Q making jokes and being funny while inventing crazy weapons and tools isn’t strictly ENTP territory. Especially not for the rebooted Q. His jokes are muted and his gadgets aren’t so…gadgety.

And it’s not like all INTPs are brilliantly learned, literal Architects as Q isn’t the architect of every single invention. Let’s just be happy for Q he wasn’t around to witness the horror of the invisible carContinue reading

MBTI: M- ISTJ

Visionary, or lady just doing her job? The latter! M’s way of doing things is strict and to the point, just like her type. While everyone else is falling all over for Bond for one reason or another, she’s calling him an idiot to his face telling him how much cleaner the job could have been done.

There’s a reason they’re known as “The Duty Fulfillers” and M displays this quite clearly. Nothing slows her down, nothing is done properly for her, and work is her life. YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS. Continue reading

Okay, so you’re writing a story right? This is crazy I know. But you’re writing a story and you haven’t started actually writing yet but you’re going to and this process can’t be rushed.

So you’re coming up with your story and you need an awesome main character. He’s ex-CIA (or maybe special forces, whatever, right?) but what skills will he use to save his divorced wife and kid? The new husband is already dead (terrorists!). Oh well, life goes on.

So your main guy has got this set of killing skills that he’s picked up over the years that he’ll use to defeat the terrorists, which also include, but are not limited to a wide assortment of guns, cars, and his fists.

But it’s not the terrorists that frighten him- his feelings do. Continue reading

MBTI: James Bond- ISTP

People generally view the various actors that have played Bond differently. Obviously. It’s why the question can be asked “Who’s your favorite Bond?” and you can always get a different answer.

It’s usually between Connery and Moore it seems and people’s typings range from ESTP to ENTJ- it’s everywhere. But what about the character as a whole?

For that, you look no further than your silent action hero, the ISTP. Continue reading

6 Bond Gadgets Reality Would Destroy

That car…Oh, the car.

There’s no doubt about it, 007 is an amazing man. In fifty years, he’s had time to build up quite a nice little collection of tools, weapons, and other devices for his use in the British branch of awesome spies and soldiers. America has GI JOE.

And while many of Bond’s gadgets are more advanced versions of weapons and tools that government is are actually working on, and others are gadgets that work in theory at the very least, it’s also true that some of his toys are a bit on the stupid side. And while even the dumbest Bond gadget is better than the best Christmas gift we’ve ever received (a rat), it doesn’t stop the gadgets themselves still being a football field away from sensible in any scenario, save for the scene when the writer wants to finish the script and eat lunch.

Below are six of Bond’s gadgets that reality immediately deem retarded. Continue reading
