Los Cronocrímenes / Timecrimes (2007) is misogynistic garbage: A short Spoiler-filled rant

Super Crooks Sucked: A Textbook Case of Why Western Writers Need to Stop with this “Relatability” garbage

This awful story reminds me of my own doubts as a writer. Mark Millar’s amazingly derivative and average story couldn’t be saved even by the hands of the intellectually superior Japanese screenplay writers. Super Crooks is a painful reminder that Americans don’t know what they want as entertainment. Spoilers for this terribly boring story will follow. Spoilers also for every series that will be mentioned in this article, because I just can’t help but compare it to other series.
