I used to be disgusted, and now I try to be amused

I finally got around to watching Captain America: Civil War because, as someone who didn't grow up reading comic books, I feel like I've missed out on a lot. (I did read "Archie" comics. By the truckload. I must have had nearly 100 books. They've all been lost to antiquity, except for one. Still not gonna watch "Riverdale" though.)

As I normally do whenever I watch a movie, afterwards I head over to IMDb to check out the trivia and goofs, which have mostly become an un-moderated free-for-all these days where anyone can post anything without the tiniest shred of relevance. One "goof" in particular caught my eye, where it read "Ant-Man violates the law of conservation of mass because..."

And then I just lost it. Well, not really, but... I'm sure Ant-Man does violate any number of physical laws, but you know, ANT-MAN IS NOT REAL. Superhero movies are not based on true stories.

But you know what was based on a true story? The Blind Side, and Sandra Bullock won a freaking Oscar for that. Man, I hate that movie.
