I'm glad that some trashy movies that are nevertheless devoid of bullshit still get made because they can rely on the world audience. Daddy's Home 2 and Transformers 14(?) are excellent at avoiding SJWisms and making significant portions of a billion dollars each because they'll play in Morocco and Japan and Spain and the American Breadbasket.

Sometimes you want to come in from mowing the lawn and eat a burger you just grilled while sitting on the couch, put on some passive entertainment and let post-cancelation Mel Gibson and uncancelable Hannibal Burress give you some low-effort chuckles. This is normal humanity, the truth about life, and no ideology can't unravel that.

I have very little desire to watch TV or movies. I just... they don't do it for me. I get it that it matters for a LOT of people. If the medium died tomorrow, I'd hardly notice. 


They've made it incredibly easy not to care, though.

Now that the Infinity Gauntlet movies are done I'm not sure I care at all about Hollywood, unless they can show me a Doctor Doom worthy of the name.  I highly doubt it.

We watched part of the last one - with Woke Hulk and Fat Thor, on TV last night in the room. It made me realize how badly they damaged the franchise with all that shit at the very end. 

It was a stupid direction to take it. The people responsible for this shit in Hollywood should be flogged.

I was fine with Fat Thor, since he was just as mighty as always, and showing that even superheroes can get depressed and fat was actually kinda cool.  Woke Hulk was really just obviously going to happen with the way Mark Ruffalo is.

Oh, I think Fat Thor was awesome as fuck - and I'd totally love to hang out with him. 

He is far more interesting than the douchebags who wrote him that way - but it shows for all their bullshit talk about how you can't body shame, and how you have to respect mental illness and depression. They project it onto a white straight male archtype, and the revel in mocking it. That is the basic problem with the depiction of the character. It is an expose of their inherent hypocrisy. 

Douchebag Hulk was just what sealed the deal. That is THEIR archtype. All the same qualities as the white straight male archtype - but not quite white, and perfectly humble and self-aware and modest and... *gag*.

Did I say this in here already?

If you want to watch a real movie, watch Charlton Heston as Long John Silver in a truly excellent and quite faithful rendition of Treasure Island. Teenage Christian Bale is the protagonist and ABSOLUTELY embodies Jim Hawkins. The acting is insanely good. The knife fights are legit. The cinematography is crack. The ship is yar and a marvel to behold.

I felt like I'd really seen a film by the time it was over.

I'd forgotten what that felt like.

Apparently Antifa are the bad guys in the Falcon show, so that's a nice change of pace.  Maybe Disney is realizing that every time they do lefty pander bullshit they lose their shirts.

I may have to pay this some heed - having *never* really watched *any* version of Treasure Island.

GTFO! *Elaine shove*

Get out 90s seinfeld GIF on GIFER - by Whitedefender

It is a bait and switch. They want to get a bunch of folks hoping, get them to subscribe, and then piss them off by firing the best actress on the show for taking an Anti-PC position. Again.
