    Jaya: but also, and I know this is BOTHERSOME, but if a boy I liked just showed up in my room shirtless when I was 16 I would absolutely be DTF

  4. N.B. 1: I mostly enjoyed this movie, except for the parts which made me furious, which I loved, because I really enjoy getting furious.

    N.B. 2: This is unrelated but it felt pretty messed up that Captain America would kiss that blonde girl

  6. For a start, the title of the production is grossly misleading. The subtitle promises an apocalypse, yet delivers only one American city under threat.
