Why Haven't You Watched: "The Lost Room"

HOLY CRAP! So this is different and I'll tell you why in a bit, but if you're just now jumping onto this blog, Unreality Magazine contributor Remy Carreiro has a series called "Why Haven't You Seen It" where he discusses moderately obscure movies that should get more notoriety than they did. With that out of the way, let me say once again, HOLY CRAP, is this show good! I remember seeing trailers for it back in 2004 and it looked moderately interesting, but wouldn't you know it, I never had the time to actually sit down and watch it. Now, I'm SO GLAD I DID! Unfortunately, this is an SUPER miniseries, consisting of only 3 (movie length) episodes (that are broken up into 6 episodes on The DVD) and as I write this paragraph I have only watched the first episode, but I can already tell, this is gonna be good!

DC Comics: The Last Racebender

I can't believe I'm doing this again...actually, yes I can, considering we're living in an age where "political correctness" and selective outrage are as widespread as The Black Death in the middle ages.

Jordan being cast as Johnny Storm a.k.a The Human Torch in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" movie, I wrote a blog titled "I'm A Racist" explaining EXACTLY why I was against him playing The Human Torch, I won't rehash it here, you can go and read it yourself, BUT unfortunately this article will cover some of those same points, so I suggest you read it before reading this one. So what is this article about? Well as we all know the "geniuses" over at DC Comics decided to (needlessly) reboot their universe (again) but this time instead of retconning a few things like most DC comic reboots have done...they invariably f*cked up everything...to the point where you have a RED Beastboy, an unmarried Superman, an EXTREMELY slutty Starfire, an EXTREMELY slutty Harley Quinn, Dick Grayson as a secret agent or some bullsh*t and the topic of this article...an African American Wally West and Helena Bertinelli (The Flash & Huntress, respectively). So let's dive into why this is not only stupid but PAINFULLY insulting to everyone.
