  1. Since when is 300 a fantasy movie???????? It’s historically based, with some fiction thrown in, but it is not fantasy.

  2. Curse you, Marvel’s Thor for creating that dumb “magic is science we don’t know about” trope!

    Because of that stupid line, almost every fantasy oriented piece of media is using it. Save for Game of Thrones, Arthurian lore, The House with the Clock in its Walls, Once Upon A Time and other pieces.

    Why can’t you just let magic be magic? Instead of always expecting answers behind mysticism
