Entertainment and how we consume it has always been endlessly interesting to me. Do you simply watch and take it in? Do you have to share your thoughts with people? When it comes to social media even the most trivial things can become hot button issues. I’ve always wondered why people needed to feel or have a certain loyalty to a brand. Let’s take the DC and Marvel movie universes for instance. This is a topic I actually try to avoid online because the toxicity and nonsense you attract is astounding. It’s very easy to say we should all just enjoy what you choose to and leave it alone but I understand the need to share and compare. Still, I have to wonder what someone thinks their accomplishing by speaking condescendingly or rudely to someone who feels differently than they do. Objectively, I’d say Marvel’s movies are better. Only because DC seems to have been fumbling all this time and trying to find its identity. Do they want to be serious? Do they want to be funny? A little of both? To be fair, I’ve had my criticisms of Marvel as well. They get by on personalities. I feel the villains in most of these movies in particular have been disappointing. The thing is, that’s how I’ve always consumed entertainment though. I don’t have any particularly loyalties or tastes I want to see everything. To be quite honest with you I love this time in the movies wherever you look there’s another superhero film coming out. I would have loved to have this as a child. Its a bit sad but like I said I often won’t talk about certain things because the well actuallys and the contrarians come out in droves. This a beautifully rich and fun time for those of us who enjoy comics, superheroes and the like. I just wish we didn’t have to navigate through toxic fandoms to discuss what we’ve come to love so much.
