    Copying Is Not Theft

    ★★★

    "Copying is not theft.
    Stealing a thing leaves one less left
    Copying it makes one thing more; that’s what copying’s for.
    Copying is not theft.
    If I copy yours, you have it too
    One for me and one for you
    That’s what copies can do
    If I steal your bicycle, you have to take the bus
    But if I just copy it there’s one for each of us!
    Making more of a thing, that is what we call “copying”

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Everything that can be said about Parasite has already been said in exhaustive detail ten times over, and the few people just now trickling towards it will find a dearth of human opinions, analysis, and overwhelming praise to sift through, making it impossible to have anything new to add to discussion that their fellow man hasn't already expressed in a myriad of ways. I myself normally wouldn't have much I could feasibly add, given how I've already delivered two reviews…

  • The Olivia Experiment

    The Olivia Experiment

    Representation of asexuality within popular forms of media has remained pretty limited, and to say that there's no good reason for why the lives of asexuals are very rarely reflected on within the mediums we consume and adore wouldn't really be true. The research, studies, and identification of individuals that don't experience sexual attraction to anyone does have its roots as far back as the 1880's, as demonstrated through the findings and writings of psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing and scholar…

    But I'm a Cheerleader

    ★★★½

    Jamie Babbit initially worked on the fringe of filmmaking, getting a job as a script superviser by embellishing her level of experience while also making short films with as much borrowed material as she could (with several individuals on a film she was burrowed deep in involvement with, The Game, offering film stock, free use of an editing bay, and some costumes for her short film Sleeping Beauties), when two sources of inspiration struck and influenced the direction of her…

    Serial Experiments Lain

    ★★★★★

    (NOTE: THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE ENTIRE SERIES EPISODE-BY-EPISODE. AS SUCH, SPOILERS ARE PRESENT ALL-AROUND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED).

    Few series have had their legacy defined by mystique and complete obliqueness like Serial Experiment Lain, delving into complex themes like the nature of reality, identity, and communication just as the internet’s interconnected stream of information began taking the form it takes today. Forming a trifecta of late 90’s anime mindfucks alongside Neon Genesis Evangelion and Revolutionary Girl Utena, a…

  • What Is a Woman?

    What Is a Woman?

    Womanhood has largely been considered a flexible and indefinite term throughout the course of history, as the core understanding and nature of women as thinking, capable beings has largely evolved in psychological studies and realistic environments from seeing women as passive, weak individualistic figures meant to be subservient to men, to instead the (mostly) equal individual capable of their own destiny and able to hold independent or commanding roles in any modern-day setting. The roots of why, however, women are…
