That the film paints Malthusian calculus in such an unflattering light just as a wave of editorials are confessing the unrealized horrors of population panic is one heck of a coincidence.
Washington Post’s comic book reporter David Betancourt joins Federalist Radio to nerd out about the newest Marvel movie and other character adaptations.
Ben Domenech covers this week’s flood of new on the Federalist Radio Hour including the snow ball of sexual assault allegation, the tax bill, and more.
Netflix can be happy that after duds like ‘Iron Fist’ and ‘The Defenders’ they’ve returned to something gritty that works without ridiculous fairy tales.
The new Netflix-Marvel series asks interesting questions about human dignity, but falls into individualism and identity politics instead of answering them.

‘Legion’ has shown filmmakers and showrunners how to make a bad guy very, very good.
