they (wHollyweird & the Liestream media) are trying to change our culture - it must not be permitted

I am not the only one who feels strongly about this

If you disagree - then MAKE AN ARGUMENT!
 

Now some will say that THIS is a good thing... but we never get a chance to debate it.

It just gets shoved at us. 

Here's a part of it, which may or may not, be a good thing:

th?id=OIP.kFTGOVH0XGiYsk1rdpYIMQHaFf&w=1
Miss America drops swimsuits and won't judge on looks...

I generally agree with that comparison, ->its just shit.

"disney generation", and all the sensitivity to strong language that eminates from conservative snowflakes is definately a minority on the-many thing.

nothing new

If you want diverse media, maybe you should just watch programming from a more diverse range of producers.....

Or move in with the armish.

Girls-Busters in an Ocean of Red : The next Feminist Flop Film?

oceans8.f4836115245.original.jpg

But you moved on. Don't really care about Star Wars. Care even less about SJW in the former united states of america.

Just wondering why these broader topics concerned you so much. Are you really worried they will be successful?

Why don't you consider the likes of:

Or

battleroyale2_450.jpg

Done much more damage to the image of prissy little girls American movies love to portray, than Disneys recent change of heart ever will.

Personally, I'm more interested in stuff like:

And why I can never find such videos from english speaking white guys.

I'm coming to the conclusion it's because they are too busy worrying if movies are too feminist, or if a paedophile reality TV star can make their country great again.

Comic, but more than mildly depressing.

F--k 0ff, Sparks . That's enough insults for now.

Take a week, and watch some films.

I am certainly entitled to my own opinions, and I do appreciate you calling the Prez a pedo, when he is battling pedos

Disney is Listening to FANS NOW! Here’s what we want… - Star Wars

Ocean’s 8: Women’s Empowerment Move or Just Another Failed Reboot?

The movie “Ocean’s 8” debuted last night. I wrote this article last night, as movie-goers no doubt thronged to their local theaters, so I don’t yet know of the first night box office tally. But I’m certain the much anticipated all-female thriller/crime film raked it in. Or maybe it didn’t.

Considering it only cost $70 million to make, I’m sure it will do fine. I mean, the first Ocean’s movie, “11,” cost $85 million and it was made 17 years ago, in 2001. Its box office take was almost a half a billion dollars worldwide. And that was a reboot of the 1960 original starring the Rat-Pack. Even with the 2001 star power, the reboot couldn’t match the cool of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford.

But why make this in the first place? Did the industry not learn anything from the disastrous female reboot of the all-Male Ghost Busters franchise? That bomb lost almost $75 million.

. . .

By cocktail party films, I mean the loser films they produce and star in for the sole purpose of being able to congratulate one another on their progressiveness at the exclusive events they attend. And the latest cause of female empowerment is #MeToo movement. Somehow the movement has morphed from – hey you pieces of crap Hollywood male power brokers – stop abusing women, to allowing girls to join, and subsequently destroy the Boy Scouts.

It seems the object of these movies is to demonstrate that women are equal and just as powerful as men. But what Hollywood, or any of these leftist progressives don’t get, is in the real world, no one cares. And exactly how “empowering” is it, if all they do is copy what men have already successfully done – and fail at it?

Feminist Terminator = A disaster

terminator-trilogy-poster-3-xl.jpg

Dark Fate will need to hit somewhere between $500 and $600 million just to break even, and by Monday it will probably not be over $160 million worldwide.

satanic Lez-being BS, that only a HELLary supporter could like?

They brought back James Cameron. They brought back Linda Hamilton. America’s butt-kissing critics got in line to award it mostly positive reviews. But if it walks like a social justice lecture, you know it’s going to talk like a social justice lecture, and Dark Fate is now doomed to be one of the biggest flops in Hollywood history.

Watched it day of release (couple of weeks ago now).

Best piss take of American culture since Team America.

The "OMFG they did the woman thing" when you watch the trailer is most likely intentional to make people posting stuff like this look like idiots (and the free publicity).

More like an episode of black mirror than a femfilm/sjw (unless watching the feminist wrecked on plastic surgery get willingly fisted to death by a mexican immigrant is your branch of social justice)

Pushing diversity at the cost of great storytelling is wreaking havoc on the comic book industry sales and splitting the fan base. But beware, anyone who dares criticize risks being cast out of the industry.

Race swaps & hipster comics

In autumn 2014, readers of American Superhero comics came across something a bit different. The first issue of Marvel’s The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl saw an established character strangely changed from a cute and sassy young woman into an awkwardly shaped goofwho cracked unfunny gags about pop culture. She was, bluntly, ugly – deliberately badly proportioned and drawn in a casual ‘indie’ fashion. The book was aimed at hipsters, not Marvel fans.

Readers didn’t take to the character because it looked an ironic in-joke. It became a flagship ‘diversity’ book for Marvel.

Marvel Comics was ‘looking to be politically correct’. Other changes soon became apparent at Marvel. Established characters changed race or sex; female characters became unfeminine; male characters became less heroic; and the number of gay characters increased dramatically. More and more traditional characters were changed for political reasons.

Newcomers arriving directly from the movies were baffled to find that the Hulk was Korean-American and Iron Man was a teen black girl. Recent years have also seen an Afro-Latino Spider-Man, a female Muslim Ms. Marvel, and a black Captain America.

The drive to ‘diversify’ comics was strange as American comics were already diverse; comic book readers had always accepted new characters with good stories.

‘This book wasn’t written for you’

What made matters worse was that new writers seemed to have little ability to write American superhero comics, a genre with specific traditions and rules. In order to appeal to a new readership, Marvel Comics hired female authors of young adult fiction whose main subjects were human interest and slice-of-life drama – not very compatible with the hero mythos, action and thriller stories.

Some writers made no effort to conform to expectations. The current James Bond comic (published by Dynamite Entertainment) is written by Vita Ayala and Danny Lore, two black women who have focused their story on a black female character.

Fans resented the blatant alteration of history by newcomer writers and editors who believed they were more virtuous than the fans. Meanwhile, all criticism of the new authors was dismissed out of hand.

The new writers and their corporate backers accused critics of bigotry and hatred.  Creators abused fans and told them “this book wasn’t written for you” and “I don’t want your money.” There was glee about upsetting devoted fans by despoiling beloved characters. Marvel Comics and DC gave work to freelance creators who were actively driving away potential customers.

The Birth of ComicsGate

By 2017, long-time readers had become bored of masculine women acting like men, men being weak and stupid, and ordinary white Americans being portrayed as dumb racists. They were depressed by the absence of heterosexual relationships between characters. They resented the Mary Sues (tokenistic, overpowered characters who have no flaws and face no real peril) being used for purposes of representation. They disliked new heroes who moped around or acted like petulant bullies.

Readers simply had had enough.

On a daily basis, I read websites and watch videos where fans reject political correctness and the disrespect of professionals. Eventually, these disparate voices formed a loose alliance called ComicsGate, critiquing bad comics and creating communities in video comment sections. In my book Culture War: Art, Identity Politics and Cultural Entryism, I documented the rise of independent creators and readers who wanted traditional apolitical adventures.

The Future of Comics?

In an industry dominated by a few major publishers, a single distributor and a limited (and contracting) network of specialist retailers, politics has destroyed producer-consumer rapport and long-term trust. The narcissism of political activists in firms, lack of management oversight, and predatory practices have decimated the American superhero comic industry at a time when its characters are more famous than ever.

Also on rt.com DC Comics drops ‘superhero Jesus’ series after campaign calls it ‘blasphemous’

But the future of comics could be the independent creators within the ComicsGate movement.

Prominent creators who believed that they had been unofficially blacklisted by their firms (including Mitch Breitweiser, Jon Malin, Doug TenNapel, and Ethan van Sciver) decided to publish politics-free adventure books independently. Using the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, they sold their apolitical comic books. Van Sciver’s book CyberFrog Bloodhoney raised more than $950,000. Campaigns by ComicsGate creators have generated more than $2 million in a year despite being frozen out of media coverage.

And they have also had to face industry obstacles.

When Richard Meyer (who makes video critiques like Comics Matters w/ Ya Boi Zack) tried to publish his action-hero comic Jawbreakers with Antarctic Press, the project was abruptly called off. Meyer claims that the deal was interfered with by Mark Waid, prominent writer and public opponent of ComicsGate. Meyer is suing Waid for compensation in ongoing litigation.

The boom in crowdfunding projects has opened doors to new creators, including Clint Stoker, who runs the YouTube channel Sweetcast. Building a rapport with viewers through regular videos, Stoker’s first book, Downcast, earned $31,667. I asked him if ComicsGate had changed the landscape for newcomers.

He said: “Yes! I had a lot of opportunities because of CG. There is a lot of excitement around Indie comics in CG. I benefit from networking and getting backers to give my book a shot.”

Asked what ComicsGate should mean to an outsider, Stoker replies “Let the books speak for themselves!”

Marvel Pulls 'Iron Man' Cover After Complaints of Sexualizing a Teenage Girl

Over the summer, Marvel announced that a 15-year-old black girl would be taking over the Iron Man mantle. Riri Williams is a child prodigy, having built her own version of an older Iron Man costume (mostly using parts she stole from the MIT campus she was studying on), and dubbing herself "Ironheart," is set to make her official debut in Invincible Iron Man #1, which will be on sale this November. Marvel recently announced a Midtown Comics exclusive variant cover for this issue featuring an image of Riri in a crop top with a curvy body by J Scott Campbell that caused such a social media fuss that the comics publisher decided to pull that variant cover entirely

SAFE SPACE for Mary Sues? ...

'STAR WARS' fans camp outside theater week before film opens...

Los Angeles (AFP) - Obsessed Star Wars fans with sleeping bags and a portable movie projector have started camping outside Hollywood's Chinese Theatre, more than a week before the blockbuster begins playing.

Roughly 20 sci-fi lovers were in place Thursday, seven days before doors swing open for the first preview screening of the much-hyped, saga-concluding "The Rise of Skywalker."

Organizers expect that number to swell to 150 in the coming days, with fans of all ages traveling from as far as the United Kingdom and Japan to see the movie first at the iconic venue where the original "Star Wars" premiered in 1977.

"When Star Wars comes, you put everything on hold -- it's like having a baby," said mega-fan Nicolas Johnson, waiting with his dog Cookie. (like you might know, snowflake?)

"I'm actually lucky that I'm able to work on the line," added Shing Hwong, a 39-year-old attorney from near San Francisco who has brought her laptop down with her.

"I'm sleeping here overnight and in the evening I just get to hang out with a lot of my friends, and talk and live Star Wars."

The tight-knit community first began lining up outside Star Wars premieres two decades ago for 1999's "The Phantom Menace."

Back then, they waited for 42 days on Hollywood Boulevard. Older and with more commitments now, they decided to trim that down for the latest film -- particularly with this premiere taking place in winter.

Nolte: ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Earns Second-Worst Reviews in ‘Star Wars’ History

‘Rise of Skywalker’ Earns Second-Worst Reviews in ‘Star Wars’ History

With 127 reviews in, The Rise of Skywalker has the second-worst reviews of any Star Wars movie in the franchise’s 40-year history.

Rotten Tomatoes averages the Skywalker review score at 56 percent rotten (this could get worse or better as more reviewers file), which is only three points better than worst-reviewed entry in the floundering franchise’s history, 1999’s The Phantom Menace, which crash-landed with a rotten score of 53 percent.

ScreenRant: “The Rise of Skywalker gets bogged down in exposition and course-correcting The Last Jedi, but does have some fun moments and fan service.”

Esquire: “In the end, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is fine, it is mostly satisfying-but unexpected or bold it is not.”

Empire Magazine: “It looks gorgeous and offers strong performances from Driver and Ridley in particular, but ultimately the saga ends with neither a bang nor a whimper but something in-between.”

There are no unqualified raves I could find. No one is screaming “masterpiece” or “best ever” or “perfect” or even “great!”

So basically, what w have here is a $500 million (production and promotion) with worse reviews than Attack of the Clones, which somehow earned a 65 percent fresh rating.

Actually, other than Phantom Menace, Rise of Skywalker is the only Star Wars movie to earn a rotten rating.

Hollywood’s Biggest Flops of 2019: Schwarzenegger, ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ ‘Cats’

Hollywood’s Biggest Flops of 2019: Schwarzenegger, ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ ‘Cats’

Hollywood is flopping harder than ever as the major studios throw more money at each new movie, hoping that fatter budgets equal bigger box office returns. Instead, the blast radius of each bomb is only getting wider.

The entertainment industry saw highly anticipated tentpole releases collapse in embarrassing fashion in 2019, with some titles expected to lose in excess of $100 million for their studios.

Unpopular social justice messages are to blame for some of the biggest failures as Hollywood continues to force feed left-wing ideology to audiences, who are catching wise to the game and rejecting it wholesale. Franchise fatigue was another factor, as creatively bankrupt studios continue to pump out sequels and reboots to diminishing returns.

Hollywood is in panic mode. The domestic box office is expected to drop 3.6 percent in 2019 compared to last year, the largest percentage drop in five years. Audiences are shunning the cinemas in favor of at-home entertainment options, which include Netflix and a growing array of competitors.

Here are some the year’s most notable box-office flops, and how much each stands to lose.
