Young Man Yells At Cloud Mailbag Close Reading #1: Justice League Reboot
We received a flurry of responses in reaction to the post offering Warner Bros ideas for their 2015 Justice League reboot.
Here at Young Man Yells At Cloud, we encourage our readers to send in questions or comments in order to build a better blog.
However, unlike most mailbags of this nature, we do not answer questions directly. Instead, we do close readings of comments in order to see how they relate to the larger diaspora in the post-war Americana zeitgeist.
Here is some of the feedback!
Oh dear god no. Is this sarcastic?
At the turn of the 21st century, American culture at-large moved away from sincerity, further muddling communication between people. Out of fear of being seen poorly, Americans developed a healthy sense of skepticism of everything.
I didn’t think it was possible for me to violently vomit upon reading a blog post. I was wrong.
Abjection is an important aspect of literary criticism In our patriarchal post-puritanical society, artists strive for intense reactions, some eliciting both an emotional and physical reaction. For many artists, it is that physical abjection, be it tears or otherwise, which is greater an achievement than any award.
I don’t know about you, but when someone outlines a movie, such as the Justice League. Generally they would write it, to ATTRACT an AUDIENCE. Not shoo every fan away.
There is much discussion in literary circles regarding our current post-modern, bordering on post-post-modern ideas regarding beauty and truth. One camp maintains the PM view that these ideals are relative, both to culture and time period. For example, early Walt Disney cartoons vs That’s So Raven.
The PPM camp strives for a return to set structural norms, like the rubberneck effect at car accidents.
