John Seavey on rewatching 1980's Flash Gordon:

But as I was watching it, I started to notice that…well, look. There's no way to be watching a film right now about a tyrannical, capricious madman who has grown decadent with a lifetime of power, treats women as playthings and concubines, and has an equally jaded and debauched daughter that he has a…complicated…relationship with, and not think of the current political climate. I found myself picturing Donald and Ivanka at the inauguration, watching the protesters, and Ivanka asking, "Why is water coming out of their eyes?" With Donald, of course, responding, "It's what they call tears. It's a sign of their weakness."

Dammit, is there anything that Trump can't ruin?
