i dunno mang once they didn't kill harry potter (because the sacrifice is the whole point of christ you fucking muppets), so i asked her "how many times you gonna get YA burned til you YA learn?"

my witticism was not appreciated by anyone but me. common state of affairs, sadly.
I feel like the "coming back to life after the sacrifice" is also a big part of the point of Christ.
Yes, otherwise the Friday before then wouldn't have been called "Good." Easter is the most important Christian holiday, though skeptics have considered the entire weekend, if nothing else, a tad too dramatic.

you can't raise a messiah without breaking some eggs (the eggs are the messiah).

they could have wizarded him back anyway because the important thing is nothing ever has consequences that affect the chance of sequels. most of this is my wife's knackered expectations when it comes to books (or tv shows) for kids.

Mad props to the Mouse for making the alt-right's fever-dream version of antifa the bad guys in Sam n' Bucky.

I can suspend disbelief enough to believe I’m wizards, that a mutant can conjure a town of mind-controlled zombies to dead with tragedy or a talking raccoon. However, I draw the line at any indication that the US gives half a shit about Libyan sovereignty.

I feel seen after that montage cut of Bucky whipping the paint scraper around like a melee weapon.

Apparently I'm in the minority for thinking that making Sharon Carter the Power Broker was a good move.

I didn’t watch it but I did watch Ryan George’s pitch meeting for it. Was her reveal as the power broker played as a Big Twist that nonetheless everyone figured out right away, or did they avoid ‘look at us we’re so clever betcha never saw that coming?’

It was a twist, but the reveal was kind of anti-climactic. I never see things like that coming, but in retrospect it was pretty obvious.
