    The continued revival of Les Misérables

    Why has "the brick" seen continued revival and adaptations? Examine the ways that history made the novel so anticipated and "famous", but also the themes that might connect with the renditions. For example, was there a political reason to have the most recent 2012 movie adaptation? Or is there a political reason that there was/is a lasting "fandom" around the original text? I feel like there are few classics that have a cult following. Perhaps there could also be a comparison between Les Misérables adaptations and Sherlock Holmes adaptations.

    • I think it would be good to compare Les Mis to other stories that have taken the same path of this majorly popular musical. – natelemburg 8 years ago

    I think you start to touch on this a bit but don’t delve into it a great deal… What I personally think would/maybe will help is an increase in diversity of the characters in race, gender, sexuality, nationality… etc. Hypothetically, if these characters can be viewed in their own right, and writers put aside the focus of U.S. anti-terrorism (or maybe putting a spin on that, like Marvel could hypothetically do with Kamila Khan and address the islamophobia rampant in the nation), then I think the movies would feel much less formulaic. It wouldn’t completely solve the problem, but I think we would all be just… Less Damn Tired.

    The Superhero Film in The Modern Era

    One thing that I feel like is really key, but missing from your article, is that access is not a universal concept that applies equally to all individuals. What about the ways in which disability plays into this conversation, for example? There are many ways that people cannot equally participate in these things. There are folks with visual impairments, hearing impairments, speech impairments… all at varying levels. I think that your article begins to skim the surface of a very, very deep topic, and I hope to see you dig into it a bit more!

    The Modern Translation of Writing

    I think this piece felt reminiscent of the effect that reading the books had on me as a child… But I also think that the series, regardless of its nostalgic effect, should still be critiqued. What might you say to some of the critiques – such as Rowling’s plot holes and her large gap in diversity?

    Why Harry Potter Appeals to Adults as Well as Younger Audiences

    I want to start by saying that I haven’t read The Crossing arc, but I think that the Demon in a Bottle arc is one of the best of Tony out there. It’s tough to not see it on the top of this list *because* it’s one of the more interesting arcs… and if The Crossing is as bad as you make it sound, I wonder if it should be at number one. Overall, I feel like this is a great summary!
