Patty Jenkins brushes aside the criticism of Wonder Woman 1984's body snatch storyline

In case you are not caught up or haven't watch Wonder Woman 1984 yet, in the movie Diana's first love Steve Trevor, who died some 70 years ago, returns in the body of some other guy (played by Kristoffer Polaha) when Diana wishes for him to return on the "Dreamstone", a wish granting gem. The film acknowledges that Steve has only returned in spirit and this is the other guys body, but for the rest of the movie we see Steve's face not Kristoffer Polaha, because that's how Diana sees him. We get no explanation why this random guy was picked for Steve's spirit to inhabit nor do we find out his name (he is referred to as "Handsome Man" in thje credits), but we are shown that "Handsome Man" was still alive and had a life of his own. A little later in the movie Diana has sex with "Steve" while it's still the Handsome Man's body (which many people online have called rape).

In the 3rd act of the movie, Diana renounces her wish and Steve disappears. In the final scene of the movie, Handsome Man returns and Diana flirts with him.

On Twitter, some random with 170 followers tried to defend what was basically Diana raping "Handsome Man" by saying Patty Jenkins was (1) "playing with the trope" in some 80s movies that basically treated what was rape as a joke. And (2) when Diana renounced her wish and made Steve disappear, Handsome Man got unfucked.

Patty Jenkins quote tweeted (see below) this random guy and replied with "Hahaha. Exactly".

Dolly Parton (+9 {4} Others) Named One of NME's People Who Defined 2020, Also Saved a Child's Life

Not content with being an icon of music and film, @DollyParton went the extra mile during this pandemic year — NME (@NME) December 13, 2020 The big news for Dolly Parton this year was, of course, her role as a financial backer of research into a COVID vaccine. Her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University has contributed to the development of Moderna's vaccine - you can't save 2020 much more than that. Oh, but in case you needed another reason to love Dolly this year, she also spoke up in support of Black Lives Matter, saying, “Of course Black lives matter. Do you think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!” How to even sum up John Boyega's 2020? He's spoken out very publicly about his thoughts on how his role in Star Wars dwindled over the course of the trilogy, but more importantly, he spoke up even louder at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in London, making waves with his passionate speech. Being so outspo

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge – January

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6. Tasks: 1. The man who will say yes to anything (except paying his taxes), Nicolas Cage , has a birthday on January 7th. Watch any one of his movies. 2. Watch any movie that has been referenced in Parks and Recreation . 3. I've been invited to a worrying number of house parties the last few weeks (t
