Control: Laureline

Do people look like that in real life? In the upcoming blockbuster Valerian a young woman named Laureline is trying to be a cop and a hero. I’m proud of her. Good. She is also skinny, pretty, and in a bikini. Is this a problem? Nah. It is curious, though: where are all the fat people in these movies? There’s maybe one fat group of aliens that will provide valuable intel to move the story along. In these superhero stories everyone is skinny. Granted, Wonder Woman had Etta Candy, but those examples are rare.

I haven’t seen the movie. I just wanted to have some normal looking people in a movie, fighting bad guys and saving the day. Is that too much to ask?
Yes, the answer is yes; that is too much to ask of Hollywood.

I have a short blog today as I have a Warhammer 40k tournament in a few minutes. In the meantime I want everyone to think about their lives and what would make them better or worse.

Thanks, and take care, friends.
