Morality and Ethics of a Hero

One of the problems I encounter when reading comics or watching TV and movies based on comic book properties is the interpretation of morals and ethics by the characters. I started these posts out of a realized frustration with dissonances noticed in comic books, cartoons, and movies.

Life in Cinque Terre is a beautiful sight to behold. A rugged coastal land on the Italian Riviera with five villages close to each other to do business in. Each Player is a farmers vying to harvest and sell produce in each village and become the most popular by fulfilling the most Produce Orders.

Upside Down Review

Upside Down: Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love. On the whole I was disappointed.

True Blood Recap: "At Last" Was Devastatingly Predicable

Dan! I think you called it. Last night's episode of True Blood entitled "At Last" left me yawning at twenty-two minutes in and constantly eye rolling after the end of the second act. Even though, there were some slight twists all in all the episode was boring.
