Let’s be honest, when you’re a new Scandal fan like myself, you haven’t got time to focus on any other villain but Eli Pope. This guy is so bad, so awful , so untrustworthy, that it almost makes me want to stop watching the show. I get get angry every time I see him, and I keep waiting for the episode where he is no longer a threat. Regardless of how much I hate him, he’s still one down right scary man, mostly because of the level of reality that there is to Mr. Pope.
Well, Fangirls, since I finally saw the 80’s cult classic Heathers a few weeks ago, it’s taken over my thoughts. I’ve done a lot of pondering on the plot and characters of this movie, and thought that it was a perfect candidate for our Villain Chat. But, then it occurred to me that I couldn’t actually land on just one villain of this movie.
I thought that with this past week bringing the return of Orange Is The New Black to our lives, it would be a lovely time to switch around Villain Chat a bit. Rather than focusing on a person or people, OITNB gives us a great opportunity to shine the bad guy light on a place: Litchfield Prison. Litchfield is the prison in which OITNB takes place, and it gives me many, many reasons for my head to burst into flames in anger & frustration. Though this place is fictional, I think it gives a healthy dose of reality when it comes to the prison system of the United States.
Sigh. I had such high hopes for this movie, Fangirls, and I really should have known better. When I go into movies that are remakes or sequels, I always try to tell myself that this isn’t that movie. I told myself that Maleficent was not going to be Sleeping Beauty. But, I wasn’t expecting that they would change around the entire story as we know it. When it comes to a story I really love, I have no option but to be critical. Frankly, this movie was a huge disappointment.
Major spoilers ahead!
Hey Dikrats! I was really lucky last month, to get to interview the creative team behind Quicksand Jack (the super cool comic written by the writers from Starkid Productions). It took me waaaay too long to finish writing it up, but they’ve been really patient with me. I can’t express how much of an honor it was to sit down for half an hour and talk to these folks. Nick and Matt have been my heroes since high school, and I went into full Fangirl mode when they just replied to my email. It reminded me of why I love doing this. So without further ado, my interview with the Quicksand Jack Creative Team!
Who better to talk about the week before Christmas than the Grinch himself? He is one of the most well known villains, especially this time of year.
“The Whos down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot. But the Grinch, who lived just North of Whoville, DID NOT.”
So trees are eating people. Yup, you read that right, trees have a taste for human flesh. This is what Martha Jones called The Doctor about. They have these symbols seemingly carved into them, and also, in the past year they have all moved. This is all going down in Greenwich Park.
