"Scene 3: Daphne Rubin-Vega plays Mimi. In 'Boheme', she's a sweet, shy seamstress. Now, she's a CRACK-HEAD, NYMPHOMANIAC PROSTITUTE! YEAH!"
I said that I was preparing a new edition of The City and the Pillar.
"Put more sex in!" Allen was cheerful.
"But everyone does that now. Maybe I'll take it all out."

"I hate to parrot what other reviewers think but Roger Ebert has a point when it comes to the masturbation scene. It shows the genius of the original to infer there was sexual voyeurism going on, and quite another to actually show it. When you hear the sound of a zipper going down and the very loud sound of fapping, as well as Vaughn’s O face while cumming to Anne Heche of all people, it really makes you facepalm and give an embarrassed chuckle at the same time."
"Ooh. Aren’t we edgy, talking about thirteen-year-old girls getting their breasts fondled by grown men because that’s how ancient Sumerian culture was and we’re being honest and oh gag me already while I take a bloody shower to wash the sheer ugliness of this sort of schoolboy version of 'adult' off."
"Erica Durance, bless her heart, looks more like a porn star than Andy San Dimas, the actual porn star playing her in Superman XXX."
"DC Comics have been making some controversial moves lately. First they reboot their entire universe, which kind of makes sense to me... But then apparently they also turned all their strong female characters into big fat nympho cockslobberers who wave their tits around like maracas, because there isn't quite enough popular culture being aimed exclusively at teenage boys just yet."
"X-books need a little sex to be firing on all cylinders, but preferably not in a way that’s so rape van. The list of weird sexual situations is longer than Juggernaut’s (arm): Jubilee and Husk share sexual fantasies at a grave. Stacy X – essentially a red version of movie Mystique – has the mutant power to control pheromones, but really all she does is make people want to have sex with her (psst, that’s not a mutant power). Stacy X and Husk engage in a catfight, and in the absolute worst offense, She-Hulk bangs Juggernaut. Augghh!! We all know Marvel has treated She-Hulk like she’s on the cast of Mad Men, but this is just… gross."
