So the “Elysium” trailer that went with Star Trek…
Am I the only one who got annoyed that they basically took Gunnm (Battle Angel Alita), turned the lead into yet another white guy action figure and called it good?
There are coincidental similarities, and then there’s glaring rip off. From the very location of “Elysium” (aka, Tiphares), the depictions of the technology, the state of Earth, and the whole “i’m getting up there one way or the other” plot….this seems to be entering glaring rip off territory.

JOHN FUCKING CHO AMIRITE?
AMENDMENT: SULU AND UHURA GOING AROUND BEING BADASSES. I’d say Sulu could captain, but he can be Uhura’s first, because of reasons.

Good, but did I miss Michael Bay’s credit somewhere?

IT IS HOLY CRAP WHY IS ALL OF TUMBLR NOT WATCHING THIS SHOW I DON’T UNDERSTAND
Like, i’m seriously sitting here fangirling the shit out of this. Not only is it well written, heinously well acted, and engaging as fuck but like..90% of the cast are women, it blows the bechdel out of the goddamn water, and the problematic shit is at a minimum and a;lsdkjflskd WHERE ARE ALL THE FANGIRLS AT I DON’T GET IT.
(in case anyone was wondering this is now an Orphan Black appreciation post, prepare for spamming.))
