->''"Due to a poor translation (or possibly a [[OpenMouthInsertFoot poor choice of words]]), Igarashi added that another reason he removed ''Legends'' was because the idea of Sonia, a female vampire hunter, was too unrealistic and unbelievable for ''Castlevania'' fans because she was a woman. What about [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaIIIDraculasCurse Sypha]], [[VideoGame/{{Castlevania 64}} Carrie]] and [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Maria?]] So much for having respect for the series. 'This game doesn't count! So does one-third of ''Dracula's Curse''!'"''

->''"...Tom Wilkinson is stuck in a more thankless role as the [[DastardlyWhiplash railroad tycoon]] whose turn towards evil is obvious from the moment he's introduced leering at ''[Ruth]'' Wilson, who becomes just another damsel in distress. In fact, when it looks like she's about to actually accomplish something during the climax, Tonto unwittingly knocks her out with a rock. I feel like there's a scene that captures every wrong-headed approach this film takes, and there's another one."''

->''"As a franchise, ''Star Trek'' dates back to the time when married couples could be seen [[SexIsEvil sleeping in separate beds]] on television...There were obvious sexual elements to characters like Nona from "A Private Little War", but those elements were never explicitly talked about -- and the subtext was often quite [[StrawFeminist alarmingly reactionary]]. The ''Star Trek'' franchise has never really updated its vocabulary when it comes to these matters. In first season episodes of ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'' -- like "Justice" Ė it often felt like the show was attempting to channel a decidedly [[GoGoEnslavement sixties sexuality]] that was out of place in the late eighties."''
