Saturation Point, Phase I: What Age of Ultron Indicates about Superhero Movies

“Age of Ultron must have felt bloated to non-fans. However, this “bloated” film still took in almost 1.4 billion (!) dollars, despite receiving slightly less favorable reviews than its predecessor. Incorporating so many characters and stories that people who love comics know exceptionally well, but might seem confusing to outside viewers.”

The Man with No Chill: A Moral Analysis of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

“Certainly one of the greatest film cowboys, and certainly the best known of Clint Eastwood’s roles. Other than perhaps James Bond and Han Solo, no movie hero has proven to be as badass or uniquely masculine as the Dollars’ trilogy protagonist. However, if we are to look at the trilogy’s most famous installment, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, there is something very interesting to be noted about our hero; namely, that he isn’t a hero at all.”

Passing the Sentence: Public Execution as a Motif on Game of Thrones

“Violence, specifically, public execution, is quite possibly the most interesting concept in the series. Some of the show’s most critical moments come from execution. The lawful (and sometimes unlawful) termination of certain characters is a vein that runs through the series, and unites characters hundreds miles away. This is notion became particularly relevant, as Season 5 hardly had a shortage of such executions.”
