But Cap 2, man. Cap 2.
Sam Wilson gets this amazing backstory about being a paratrooper and getting through PTSD. And he’s like this life coach for other soldiers who have trouble adjusting back home; and he volunteers to go up against an entire spy organization with only two other people because he knows it’s the right thing to do; and he sits by Cap’s bedside while he’s recovering—because he’s a paratrooper, and he catches people, and that’s the kind of guy he is. He’s got your back. And he’s funny, and clever, and has no time for your bullshit, and is a genuinely nice guy.
And Nick Fury gets to be this great, fleshed-out character who has trouble trusting people—because he’s a black man living in invisibly-racist America; because policemen have pulled him over because his car’s too nice and he must have stolen it; because his grandfather had to bring a gun to work, and he worked in an elevator; because he lost an eye the last time he trusted someone. He’s impulsive, and rash, and he doesn’t wait for anyone to give him the go ahead, he just acts, because he only trusts himself.
And Natasha Romanoff is not anyone’s sex object, and she wears hoodies that hide her figure because who cares. She’s the smartest person in the room, and she’s a lethal killer, and she hacks into databases with ease. She plays by her own rules, and she’s never let anyone see the real her because if they do, they’ll know exactly how to hurt her. She worries that she might have been working for the wrong team all this time, again, and she’s not used to people trusting her. She’s not an ice queen and she’s not a seductress: she’s a woman with a terrible past, and a good heart.
THESE WRITERS, YOU GUYS. THIS CHARACTERIZATION.
THESE ARE SUCH WONDERFUL, FLESHED-OUT MINORITY CHARACTERS.
AND THIS IS A SUMMER POPCORN MOVIE. ABOUT SUPERHEROES.
Kurt and Blaine can have problems. That’s fine. Relationships need ups and downs, especially on television. But lately, I feel like Klaine’s relationship is completely unbalanced and unhealthy. It’s always Kurt attacking Blaine, and it actually hurts me to watch.
Kurt doesn’t want to live with Blaine. He’s not willing to share space with Blaine. He’s not willing to work on their problems. He refuses to talk about what’s bothering him when he thinks Blaine is smothering him, and when he’s mad at Blaine for watching porn. Both times he gets mad and refuses to communicate. He stands Blaine up, doesn’t apologise, and passive-aggressively pretends nothing is wrong. He says they talk too much, blows off Blaine’s suggestion to talk about their problems, but then berates Blaine for not talking to him. He doesn’t comfort Blaine when Blaine finally opens up to him, but is confused why Blaine wouldn’t talk to him (after telling Blaine not to talk). There was no discussion, once again. Nothing was resolved.
Most importantly, Kurt doesn’t see anything he’s doing as wrong. After their literal fight scene, he asks Blaine “What was that about?”, as if Blaine was the one instigating the fight. And again, Glee spun the scene to say Klaine’s problems are about Blaine’s insecurities. Glee tells us that Kurt is the victim of Blaine’s smothering and Blaine’s need to be “the alpha gay”, but never shows that Kurt has done Blaine wrong, too. Kurt is the biggest problem in these arguments, and neither he or Glee are acknowledging this.
Kurt always thinks he’s right, and Blaine is fighting with a wall. There’s literally nothing he can do to get through to Kurt - not even tears - and you can see it’s killing him. Kurt just stands there, stares him down, and doesn’t communicate.
I love Kurt. I love him, I love his personality, I love the way he loves Blaine. I have no idea why he’s doing this, but they both seem so unhappy. If he’s still punishing Blaine after a year, something is wrong. I haven’t seen Kurt love or care for Blaine since 5x14, not once. I haven’t seen any actions from him that show he loves Blaine.
What’s happening is killing me, because nothing is being fixed. There hasn’t been resolution. I don’t want to be mad at Kurt anymore, but Glee is giving me nothing about his thoughts and behaviour at the moment. All I can see are his actions, and he’s so cold towards Blaine. That isn’t a relationship I can happily support.
This. Exactly the reason why every time I think I might start watching Glee again, I change my mind. I checked out that scene from tonight’s episode, and I literally cringed.
Love that when Blaine brings up the competition between them, Kurt claims it’s never been a competition—when Kurt is the one who began the competition in the first place back in Season Three (“You don’t know what it’s like being YOUR boyfriend.”).
This, and the blatant disregard for pre-established characterisation and backstory.
"These Victors are angry, Katniss. They’ll say anything to try and stop The Games. I suggest you do the same.”
You know what I find really interesting about this part here?
The other victors could have easily made it District 12’s fault. Why did they have to pull that stunt of joint suicide? Why did Peeta have to use the whole star-crossed-lovers gambit? Why did Katniss have to volunteer? What’s with all this Mockingjay shit? If those two could have just played along and followed the rules then none of them would be in this position to start with. They’d continue on their merry lives, their safety guaranteed.
Instead even the districts that dismissed District 12 in previous games - particularly Districts 1 and 2 - are in solidarity with Katniss and Peeta. Quietly or overtly. They place the blame squarely on the Capitol, never Katniss or Peeta.
Sure, some of them are still after Katniss and Peeta in the actual arena, as they always have in their earlier Hunger Games - mostly because that’s what the game calls for. Not all of them have the ability, interest, or space to completely buck the system the way the alliance in Catching Fire does. Even so, they show a considerable amount of respect for Katniss and Peeta, recognising that it is not their fault that they have to relive this hell.
I’ve seen supposedly liberal, progressive, or radical “solidarity” groups fall apart over infighting. I’ve seen people blame each other for continued oppression rather than pointing responsibility over the divide-and-conquering oppressor. A situation like this? Rare. And beautiful all the same.
