Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is a DC fan favorite. It catapults the DC Animated Movie Universe, is a phenomenal adaption of the Geoff Johns' comic, and introduces the non-comic book reading audience to Flashpoint Batman! We also get a brief, but mesmerizing glimpse into the sheer evil of Professor Zoom. A true sociopath! However, it is near the end of the film, with what he says that is a bit troubling. We finally learn what created this alternate Earth, and he challenges Barry Allen's selfish action. Many may think Professor Zoom has a point. But really...does he?
Mankind has a track record of horrible abuse. We abuse women, animals, the environment, and even our fellow man. Not to make these things sound inconsequential, but humanity itself has a pension for abusing far more. We abuse the English language.

Often there are uses of it without the person's realization. I recall a scene from television miniseries Hitler: The Rise of Evil, in which Hitler invites reporter Fritz Gerlich to come write for him and his party.
Dazed and Confused is a beloved cult film, especially among teenagers. I recall watching this film with my older brother during his later high school years. With the setting of the film, it seems like something of a coming of age film for teens. It was always one small scene that stood out to me that many probably take for granted. No judgment if you skip by this scene, thinking little or anything. Is the part necessary for the plot and enjoyment of the film? Of course not! I am speaking of Ms. Stroud's final words to her class...
When news of Catwoman coming to the DC Universe's Harley Quinn animated series, excitement was in the air. Later, news came of the voice actress to take on the role. Sanaa Lathan will be lending her voice to everyone's favorite feline fatale. Right away, the name was unfamiliar and did not sound traditional in the American vernacular. A quick search finds her first name translates to art in Swahili. Furthermore, Sanaa Lathan is a black actress. Why of all possible characters, do they decide to make Catwoman black?
