When did superhero fatigue hit you?

I’m not ashamed to admit that after completing Phase One, I became a deep admirer of the MCU. The Avengers was unlike anything I’d ever seen in a mainstream film, from a filmmaker whose work I still adore despite not being particularly fond of the actual person. A few mishaps aside, the next two phases built on the momentum in deeply satisfying ways. The films have personal memories attached to them for me too, which is probably part of why every part of the final third of Avengers: Endgame leaves me with tears in my eyes. A decade is a long time to follow something devotedly. In that time, I’ve consumed pretty much every other superhero medium that came out alongside the onslaught of Marvel blockbusters—the Snyderverse, the Arrowverse, even Fant4stic. Then came the pandemic. Like the rest of the world, I was intrigued by Wandavision, and like the rest of the world, I was a little disappointed by how it ended. OK, that’s just a minor quibble.

Which movie can you watch over and over again?

Recently, a friend told me he doesn’t like to rewatch movies. This struck me as odd, because I love rewatching movies. I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen Blazing Saddles, Men in Black, Scream, or even MCU classics like Iron Man and The Avengers. I feel like talented directors hope their films will be watched again and again. Often times, you’ll notice little details you missed the first time around, and plot points you didn’t like at first suddenly make sense. Genre doesn’t matter either, every batch has its hidden gems. What movie can you watch again and again?

Is Jaws still the best shark attack movie?

Jaws is an undeniable classic, one of the most influential films of all time. As we know, had the director and crew had a bigger budget and better technology, it could have been a very different film. The shark would have had a lot more screen time. Whether or not this would have ruined the film’s tense atmosphere is anyone’s guess. Still, in the wake of Jaws, there have been many shark attack films that have had access to such resources, and while none of them are as highly regarded by audiences as Jaws, it’s hard to argue that other films of this type have lacked iconic moments. Samuel L. Jackson’s shocking death in Deep Blue Sea is one of the most memorable ever put to film. And who could say anything bad about Jason Statham essentially fighting off a giant prehistoric shark with his bare hands in The Meg? That level of pure, unbridled awesomeness is hard to beat. Sure, it’s cheesy, but all shark attack movies have an element of cheesiness in them; that’s what makes the movie a real movie.

Do you think the MCU movie “Blade” will ever be released?

When Marvel announced that Blade would be joining the MCU, I couldn’t have been more excited, especially when Mahershala Ali was attached to the project. However, Blade was originally slated to hit theaters in November 2023, but it was delayed and now it is expected to finally hit theaters in 2025. Unfortunately, that release date might be missed as well, as recent reports suggest that director Yann Demange is leaving the project, making him the second filmmaker to exit the long-awaited film. For now, Ali is still slated to star in the film, but if there are any major delays, I wouldn’t be surprised if he drops out. At this point, my enthusiasm for Blade would have completely evaporated. What do you all think? Will Blade ever actually hit theaters?

Should star actors have creative control over the production?

There has been a huge boom in actors starting their own production companies in recent years. From industry greats like Reese Witherspoon and Emma Stone to a young Mckenna Grace, it’s great to see women in particular taking on these positions behind the camera. And following the success of Barbie, Margot Robbie is developing a Sims movie as a producer. When these celebrities work as producers, they obviously deserve a certain amount of creative control over the end result. But should an actor be given the same privilege just because they’re famous? Of course not. What do you think?

Has any television character ever deserved her fate less than Rita Morgan?

Dexter’s fourth season is widely considered the high point of the beloved and controversial series, and for the most part, it’s well deserved. It features stellar performances, including a career-defining performance from already-veteran actor John Lithgow as the Trinity Killer. It’s full of big twists and turns as Dexter tries to balance his new life as a husband and father with his uncontrollable bloodlust. And yet it also contains one of the most egregious examples of fridging in recent memory: the death of Dexter’s wife Rita, arguably the purest character in television history. And the writers didn’t stop there, effectively writing Rita’s children out of the series in subsequent seasons, removing much of the show’s emotional core. No matter how much you love the series, no one will argue that the quality didn’t drastically drop after Rita’s brutal death at the end of season four. Has one beloved television character ever been rated worse than another?
