>>79009598 Joss Whedon is a very important person who we should be teaching about in schools.
Ofcourse the lesson would be more a 'learn from the past so we in the future don't make the same mistakes' kind of deal.This is what happens when you go full white knight,women despise you more then rapists.
Seriously I don't think the average 4channer(unless you browse /b/,/pol/ or /r9k/) realizes how much females despise those ultra white knight feminists.You are basically saying,"I will sell my soul,dignity and pride just for the SLIGHTEST CHANCE of some pussy".
When I have a son I'm gonna perform put him through some rigid testing.Like I'll make him wear a shock collar and ask him what he would do in a certain situation involving women.If he says anything even remotely simp he's getting shocked.
Him? Nowhere. He's still doing the exact same shit shot for shot he's been doing since Buffy.
Marvel went wrong hiring him to do something so huge. Joss's style has always been confined to obscure gems for a reason, if you actually stop to look at it the writing is shit and they are all literally just various episodes of Buffy rewritten with different characters.
What he should have done is make that Doctor Horrible sequel he promised back in 2011 and then continued making small shit, maybe a new cult show or two. Everyone, himself included, would have been happier with that.
>>79013795 >His stories have strong central themes Which are executed poorly and go all over the place. His core themes are superficial at best. >his characters each have their own views and personal conflicts Which again, are handled poorly. The characters themselves go through very minor character arcs and we never actually see any sort of effects that their troubles cause them. His characters are walking cardboard cutouts. >he's good at balancing a large cast Well of course he is, that's an undeniable fact. Although anyone can balance a large cast when each member of your core cast are walking talking cliche's who have the depth of a fucking puddle. >and most of his jokes are clever His "jokes" are the equivalent of *nudge nudge, wink wink* shit. They're not funny, they're annoying.
>>79014174 I get the sense you're working from a limited reference pool.He's recent stuff has been disappointingly bad, and if nothing else serves as a good reminder for why work should be praised more than the creator - I get the sense Whedon's legions got to his head. But his early stuff tends to be pretty good. Personally, I'd Say Dollhouse was where his stuff started turning to shit and Cabin in the Woods was his last genuinely great piece.
And honestly, I'm willing to put up with his recent mediocrity in the hopes he might return to some of his earlier glory.
>>79013200 >panders to a group that will turn on you like a pack of rabid dogs the second you do anything that even slightly displeases them >Black Widow gets captured in AoU so she can alert the team to Ultron's whereabouts >tumblr fuckwits see that as damsel in distress >in a fucking instant, Joss is dead to them with no chance of redemption >receives massive hate from the group he felt he belonged in >deactivates his Twitter account because of it
>>79012988 >Seriously I don't think the average 4channer(unless you browse /b/,/pol/ or /r9k/) realizes how much females despise those ultra white knight feminists. Actually, 4chan does now; tumblr is the core of all internet feminism now. We betas of 4chan have long accepted already that we'll never get laid.
Only one of his work beside Avengers I'm familiar with was Firefly. Which was kind of bad. I don't understand what everyone see in him. Avengers were also kinda bad, but this is to be expected because what good can possibly come out of this concept?
>>79015139 I really liked angel and buffy was ok, Firefly was extremely overrated. Avengers I can't sit through more than one viewing of and I still haven't finished age of ultron because of how goddamn boring and generic it feels. I always end up cutting it off halfway through and end up doing something else.
>>79015211 I always wanted to get into Firefly, but I also kinda averse of things with huge backlogs. It's important to me to discuss shows with people and how am I supposed to do it being years behind?
Firefly was pretty good, but nothing really happened, for one fairly obvious reason. Also, in terms of darker, deconstructive science fiction TV shows to get cancelled in the early 2000s, it will always be second best to Farscape.
Buffy and Angel were pretty good, but the former... hasn't aged well.
Cabin in the Woods and Dr. Horrible are both incredible.
>>79015556 When watching Firefly I just couldn't believe it. First, I couldn't believe this inept crew could actually survive life of crime Second, I couldn't believe they would actually want to work together The whole world didn't really work to me either.
The entire show felt artificial and unbelievable to me, and I'm not talking about science accuracy or something like this.
>>79015645 Firefly never got past its episodic period, where every episode or two gets its own story and there isn't much continuity between them. I think TV shows open with this in the hopes that they won't scare off any new viewers with "necessary viewing", and in the hopes that once they get to a second season (or the second half of the first one) they'd be able to start on some myth arcs. The down side being that no one got any character development and any problems presented never got explained.
As far as why they would work together, my impression was always that there really weren't that many other options.
>>79015894 Jayne and Kaylee could find better jobs, probably. I don't see why anyone but Zoe and Wash would stay with Mal. Why would they tolerate painting huge target on them with harbouring high-priority fugitives. They are criminals damn it, they need to be ruthless or very good to be able to survive, and they are neither.
Honey poo, dear, you misunderstand the whole thing.
Sjw is not about social justice, yes its named that but its not about that.
Its about looking like a good guy. Like when you have extremely religious people and they start carrying crosses around and announcing to everyone that jesus is coming. Its not really about the message, its about posturing long enough that other people look at you and go "There goes one GOOD person"
And the best way to do that is to look at people brought up as examples of that movement, and try to tear them down for failing the movement. If you tear them down then you gain their power and the others in the movement recognize you as a better "good" person than the person you tore down.
Its all about eating each other and stabbing each other in the back, it has nothing to do with improving the world. Whedon thought he could get some good guy cred for getting in there, and then he become a valid target for them.
