Just had a conversation with someone who said that they FELL ASLEEP IN THE AVENGERS BECAUSE IT WAS SO BORING.
They then proceeded to tell me that having aliens threaten the earth was cliche but that they really liked Green Lantern (aka, the space-alien police) and enjoyed Ryan Reynolds’ tremendous acting and was looking forward to seeing him as Deadpool.
And that Thor wasn’t a real superhero or anything and they shouldn’t’ve put him in the movie, not like he has long been established as a canonical member of the Avengers or anything.. But hey, they also said they really liked Nick Cage as Ghost Rider.
And also that they hated the new Amazing Spiderman movie.
They then proceeded to insult my personage by insisting that all of the aforementioned DC movies were based on the comics, not that I would know.
It’s not like I’ve been reading comics since I was a child. I’m a girl. That would be silly.
They concluded by saying that Marvel “f*cking sucked” and DC was way cooler because everyone knows that if you like something you have to pick a side to express it and vehemently deny the perceived opposing side rather than simply appreciate that all sides have appealing and uninteresting things to offer.
I had to walk away from this conversation.
I literally had no words that could not be expressed without caps-rage.
