RE: Boycott Brie Larson's, Marvel's MCU film - Captain Marvel.




Propaganda as subtle as a SJW-hammer.

The reason the originally evil race of Skrull had to be changed into poor oppressed green-skinned refugees while the blond-blue-eyed Kreee were made into evil oppressors - well that speaks for itself.

They cannot make a Skrull secret invasion because it does not fit their social justice narrative. They will however give you one day heroes like some White Redneck guy who wants to build a big wall at the Mexican border.

Fuck them all. And the propaganda is already at 490 mio.$. Someone noted that they frontloaded the movie and fired from all cylinders - they launched in the US with more cinemas than the last Avengers movie. They also launched in all markets at the same time overseas which they usually don't do in order to stretch out the durability. But it seems that they knew this to be a potential Solo/Last Jedi with a strong start and fast decline as the word-of-mouth is lousy. It's frankly not lousy enough.

Feminism is an ego trip. Using a butt double to try and hide the fact that her ass is as flat as the Great Plains is an ego trip too.

RE: Boycott Brie Larson's, Marvel's MCU film - Captain Marvel.
Red Letter Media's review is up:





They discuss the controversy during the first portion of the film, and it's a great example of the sort of Blue Pill thinking that all of us embraced at some point.

They try and explain away her statements as a "gaffe" (Do conservatives and Christians get forgiven for making "gaffes"?), and interpret her intent in the best possible light. As they understand it, she was trying to emphasize that art is going to be influenced by your environment and background; as will one's understanding of the world. Furthermore, while a White man can certainly enjoy - say - Boyz in the Hood, I'd want to speak to a Black man who lived in that time and place before imagining that my understanding of it was correct. Encouraging diversity (true diversity) is great for creative fields, and that's what they think Bree was saying.

Remember when we were so naive?

Even if she's genuinely trying to improve the lot of others (and quite frankly, her words were forthright, and I'm taking them at face value; she holds White men in contempt, and disregards the work they have to put in to achieve anything) this 'movement' will quickly be usurped and instead of actual diversity, you'll have Democrat Uncle Toms filling the ranks. Sellouts who are roughly as Black as Obama - which is to say less Black than a cracker like me.

$750 mil to... break even?

One film finance source believes that it’s pretty much certain that Captain Marvel will see $1 billion around the world and break the glass ceiling for female-led pics at the global B.O., dashing past Wonder Woman‘s final global of $821.8M. Domestic will be at $400M. Captain Marvel will pass break even in the theatrical window by the end of the week with $750M worldwide.

https://deadline.com/2019/03/captain-mar...202574950/


That's from Deadline; more on the shill-news media side of things.
I did see a hell of a lot of marketing for this. More than normal in Australia. Not to mention a Superbowl advert.
Plus, if they were buying tickets or paying more for this film than normal. I could see why the costs are inflated.

Can't stomach those guys after their Force Awakens review where they claimed that it made perfect sense for the MaREY sue to whoop Kylo's ass. Of course - they were both confused - he training for 25 years and she holding a lightsaber for the first time, but both are confused. Guess all I need is to close my eyes and beat Roger Federer on one of his bad days right?

The are blue-pill normies who excuse both feminism, far-left propaganda and are viciously attacking most projects which are not globohomo-owned. One of those projects for example was the old Star Wars since Lucas owned, so the globohomo-media was happy to chime in and support all the hate coming his way.

Brie Larson's comments were not really concerned about anything resembling "different viewpoints". That's bullshit. It was all based on the following propaganda:

1) Every fucking position has to be a direct representation of genders and races and if there are no 50% of CEOs women and 6% of them being black women, then the reason for this is sexism or racism. Meritocracy, tribal interests and aptitudes don't matter. Of course they never address the NBA or the men working in the sewers or waste disposal - then racial or gender imbalances don't matter.

2) She assumes similar to how those shitty marxists think that you gotta be black to write, understand a black character similar to how you must be a woman to understand a female character. But that in itself is insane. By that measure women could not even write male characters in their book - Agatha Christie wrote marvelous books with plenty of male characters, so what - it's all bogus now? This rot has started already 20+ years ago frankly as some older black Marvel writers who wrote Superman, Batman in the 1980s (yes - there were a few even if not many), then suddenly noticed in the late 1990s that they are being only offered black characters. One Marvel writer then up and went because he did not want to be reduced to his fucking race. And this is exactly the thing.

Larson used marxist rhetoric claiming that a "White Dude" cannot possibly assess the quality of a Wrinkle in Time as if your race and gender makes it impossible. So what next? Do you have to hire kids to make Disney movies?

Fuck that marxist shit - Red Letter shitheads don't know jack shit. They are like clueless boomers who will one day wake up in their enriched shithole and ask: "What happened?" You slept, waved away everything and the globohomos planned your demise, that happened.

Shit, I'd blocked out that comment about A Wrinkle in Time.

It's all relative though. If Disney were investing far more into this film than normal (excess advertising, paid shilling, Disney buying tickets).

While the broadcast figure may deem this film a profit.
The reality would be that it cost far more than what it was worth.

Understandable that Disney were 'banking' on avoiding another Solo situation. Come hell or high water.
Yet it will still cost them a great deal, & Disney will know the lengths to which they needed to fake this films popularity.

RE: Boycott Brie Larson's, Marvel's MCU film - Captain Marvel.
She is in the Endgame trailer staring down Thor and explaining to him her feminist agenda.









The boxoffice success is based on the MCU franchise. Wonderwoman might have made 1,2 bio. $ if it came out of the top of the MCU. Aquaman and Wonder Woman made it despite the DCU failures.

The reality is that the fish starts rotting at the head. And the head is Disney - the propaganda ministry there fucked up Star Wars and they are doing it with the MCU. The indoctrination has been rising in the recent movies with subsequently stronger nods to the marxists - Black Panther, Thor Ragnarok, new Spiderman, Ant Man and the Wasp - it has been strongly on the rise. They will up the ante ever more, have only more success when they tone it down a bit.





He is right - Thor missed in that trailer, but she likely would have one-punched him to oblivion.

Personally I am curious to see how Disney will tank the MCU - totally botch it. You already saw the daughter of Hawkye training, so she will take over from her as Monica Rambeau will take over from Carol Danvers in 7 movies - or so their plans go.

Fuck Red Letter Media, those failed film makers are part of the machine that made Star Wars so fucked up. They're the ones who suggested Star Wars should go to Disney and JJ Abrams should run it. They refuse to admit they were wrong. Just a piece of what's wrong with today's film pundits: constantly licking the asshole of the Mouse.

Some crazed Star Wars prequel fan/DCEU/franchise fans should have free reign in slaughtering them and pump them full of lead. After that, they should go to Cracked and Birth.Movies.Death to send a message and do the same thing. All of those dipshits are why Hollywood can't do anything creative with films or attack them constantly while hiding under the freedom of being a fan

Fuck all of them. If they don't get shot, I hope they all get AIDS from being raped by a pack of trannies.

I still refuse to pay for an MCU film because of them providing people safe spaces and I'm not supporting grown children who can't handle real life.

I wouldn't believe it at first, but the reports are coming in from empty theaters, from managers saying that they had hundreds of no-shows over the first weekend. One cinema reported exactly 25 no-shows per each session. You can buy tickets online of course. Even reports are coming in from around the world saying the same thing - Disney buying up tickets in fucking India where managers say that they have hundreds of no-shows which is very odd.

I think that Disney really invested the cash as part of the marketing budget. They made billions in the MCU and learned from Solo. If Captain SJW tanked, then it would have impacted Endgame. So what's a few dozen millions.

Also - it leaked that Disney somehow needs 750 mio. $ to break even. What did they spend so much cash on? Movie tickets?

And from what I saw of the movie then it had the appeal of a TV flic with lots and lots of entitled, bitchy and haughty appearing women while making some feminazi comment after another. Plus - the movie is dumb - really dumb with massive plot holes and retcons of the entire MCU.

Yet ultimately. Disney wind up shooting themselves in the foot.

They can shill for the content, yet just as with Disney Star Wars, the audience will get tired of trite content.
Plus, as it can be calculated that the whole Disney Star Wars franchise is not a profit despite the ridiculous amount of money it made (esp. after the expensive failure of Soylo).
Disney could readily drain the cash cow that is the MCU. I can't see many young boys racing out to buy Captain Marvel action figures for one...

Then for every Black Panther or Incredibles 2; when you look at other recent Disney releases (Wreck It Ralph 2 / Mary Poppins 2 / A Wrinkle in Time / Disney's Christopher Robin / The Nutcracker and the Four Realms). There are plenty that are not or have not done well at all.

Remember how much money is at stake here...not just CM but the next Avengers. They are so scared of the "Last Jedi/Solo" effect that yeah, maybe spending 100 million on empty seats to artificially pump the first weekend numbers, to them seems like a good move.

It is impossible to overstate the evil of Disney. I would say "Walt is turning over in his grave" but how many times do we want to say that?

Quote:New Reports of Empty Theaters at Captain Marvel Add to Movie’s Controversy

John F. Trent | March 13, 2019

New reports of empty theaters for Captain Marvel’s weekend showings are the latest in the movie’s ongoing controversy.

A number of Twitter users indicated there were empty seats at a number of Captain Marvel showings over the weekend.



We spoke with a movie theater manager who asked for anonymity. He told us they had “exactly 25 no shows for every showing of Captain Marvel on Thursday through Saturday.”

The manager told us this was definitely abnormal, “It’s definitely not normal. People usually show up when they pay for tickets…I’m not sure what it is, we’ve seen big groups not show up before, but they get refunds.”

I asked whether or not these tickets were purchased in bulk, but that information isn’t available, “I’m not sure if they were bought all at once because Fandango doesn’t give us that information, but exactly 25 no shows for every show is probably statistically impossible.”

The manager would add, “I would say it’s someone trying to make the ticket sales look better than they really were.”

He would also indicate he saw significant drop offs in ticket sales from Sunday at his theater, “Sunday for Captain Marvel wasn’t good and Monday and Tuesday were terrible. They were like a 75% drop off from Sunday.”

Box Office Mojo reports Captain Marvel’s Sunday take was only $38.8 million at the domestic box office. A drop of over 26% from Saturday. On Monday, the decline was even worse. The film dropped nearly 72% bringing in less than $11 million putting its total gross at over $164 million so far.

Captain Marvel has been mired in controversy. One America News Network’s Jack Posobiec called for fans to avoid seeing Captain Marvel and instead see Alita: Battle Angel following Brie Larson’s comments insinuating she wanted less white men covering her on the press tour and reviewing the movie.

What do you make of these reports of empty theaters? Do you think people were trying to prop up Captain Marvel during its opening weekend?

I don't think the Box office numbers were faked.
Maybe a few feminist groups purchased tickets in groups.
The movie is only 1 hour and 45 minutes long, so
this increases a box office because there can be
multiple showings.
Unlike, other longer movies that bomb, they usually
bomb because they are also 2 1/2 hours long that
no one wants to sit through and movie theaters
can only sell less tickets due to to long running time.
Captain Marvel is a fun, popcorn enjoyable movie that has decent sci fi action. Its a family friendly
pic that large families can bring their kids along.
There didn't seem to me that much feminist ideologly. She does shoot lazers from her hands
but it seems like that is in line with the original comic book.

RE: Boycott Brie Larson's, Marvel's MCU film - Captain Marvel.
Another problem with red vs blue pill thinking is demonstrated all over this thread.

Ghostbusters was absolute SJW garbage.

People are saying this movie is too. A very singular and linear assessment that is not very meaningful in the context of what art really is.

Seems like people thought this was a good movie. Yes, there is some SJW undertones in there but that should only affect the quality of the film so much.

If we as red pilled men can't see the difference and appreciate art without diminishing it by viewing through a liberal/conservative lens, we will become more hollow and less appreciative of what art really is.

It's like relationships. No need to overly politicize them and diminish them through an alpha/beta lens because all that does is create a seething inability to see the other person as a human being.

We have too many of these "x movie or y series is too liberal, boycott them.." threads these days. The agenda is everywhere.

If you can't sift through real world relationships and art without using some artificial pre-justified lens, then you have a while to go before you can appreciate any type of artistic medium, or for that matter, friendships. Wink

[Image: D0LsfDtUwAAXIZw.jpg]

Feminist-SJW points:

+ everyone likes Carol Danvers (old SJW trope)
+ she is the bestest at everything - hand-to-hand combat, superpowers, flying everything, best of everything
+ everyone from her father, to her male friends, to her comrades in the military - everyone was telling her that she isn't gonna make it
+ her best friend is also a Mary Sue - ex-test-pilot single mother (at least that is true since she is black)
+ men are mostly bozos including Nick Fury who seems not to be the cool grim guy, but the chipper somewhat incompetent sidekick who gets his eye scratched out by a fucking cat!
+ white guys are evil (Kree), green monster-looking guys are the misunderstood terrorist people of color (Skrull) In the comics the Kree were blue-skinned and were more akin to ancient Rome - ruthless, but not necesserily genocidal evil. But of course SJWs don't like anything resembling the evil Whites, so the shapechanging Skrull are much more oppressed despite them being set out as absolutely evil from the comics.
+ In one scene I had to wince, because Captain Marvel was chased by this one Kree chick in her combat plane and the girl was super-hot. Captain Marvel of course won and killed her - just blew up prime HB9 pussy. It's a big odd to see your enemies go out like that - still odd to see super-hot women be blown up like nothing and have this piece of shit entitled feminazi be happy about it.
+ In the final battle Jude Law stupidly throws away his weapons and tells her to prove her worth by fighting mano-a-mano without "the lightshow". She just blasts him with her beam and tells him as the proud entitled woman that she does not have to prove to him anything.
+ In so many of the scenes Larson stands or struts around with a smug grin on her fucking face - it's insanely unlikeable.
+ Plus they retconned the MCU - she was supposed to be the "First Avenger" since she was the "Avenger" as a test pilot
+ In addition they claim that she is super-powerful, the strongest there is - by the way - the space scene looks fake and super-CGI like it came out of a cheap TV series. She just effortlessly blows away everyone which is another SJW-trope as their "heroes" have no real struggle.
+ Her power-levels are also strangely inconsistent - she does hand-to-hand combat with human-looking human-power-level beings, but then she can blow up entire spaceships with one hand tied behind her back. Plus - she can take a lot of damage easily. Essentially they do amalgamation of various powers on her which is also normal for SJW-marvel. When Rogue had her powers then she was just very strong, very durable to being bullet-proof and could fly. I remember reading about that in the comics back as a kid.

Yeah - no feminist propaganda at all for a clueless boomer or a certified shill it is.

Ghostbusters was absolute SJW garbage.

People are saying this movie is too. A very singular and linear assessment that is not very meaningful in the context of what art really is.

Seems like people thought this was a good movie. Yes, there is some SJW undertones in there but that should only affect the quality of the film so much.

If we as red pilled men can't see the difference and appreciate art without diminishing it by viewing through a liberal/conservative lens, we will become more hollow and less appreciative of what art really is.

It's like relationships. No need to overly politicize them and diminish them through an alpha/beta lens because all that does is create a seething inability to see the other person as a human being.

We have too many of these "x movie or y series is too liberal, boycott them.." threads these days. The agenda is everywhere.

If you can't sift through real world relationships and art without using some artificial pre-justified lens, then you have a while to go before you can appreciate any type of artistic medium, or for that matter, friendships. Wink

If it were a grand fantastic Indiana Jones movie sprinkled with some leftist propaganda, then we wouldn't be having this thread.

Banksy is a great artist despite being left-leaning and there are many others out there. I like his work and I like the work of other semi-SJWs despite being on the left spectrum. But the reason I like them is because they are genius on certain level.

This movie is not genius, it's not even good. The MCU before the last few actually all had some propaganda points except maybe Endgame and others where they did not have time for it or did not want to diminish the earning power.

Art can be excellent and far-left, but it has to be good. We can easily understand that, but even then - it should adhere to basic human myths. And in the future you will fucking see whether the people will watch Back to the Future, original Ghostbusters or Ghostbusters Reboot or Captain Marvel. It will be like Mozart and his contemporary super-stars of his days - everyone but him being forgotten. Only because you have the rich people's backing and even the popular appeal of the day does not mean that your art means anything. Banksy will be a genius in 500 years even if he is a leftie, this shit will be forgotten like the Stalinist movies - and even they were better.

RE: Boycott Brie Larson's, Marvel's MCU film - Captain Marvel.
To expand upon what Simeon just said; I think that many of us here are reluctant members of the hard right. It's not the left per se which we are opposing so vehemently, but the weaponized left which is being used as a tool to destroy our civilization.

Nobody here wants a tyrannical, moralistic autocracy. The history of Christendom was that of a very light yoke; rather than burning people alive for their sins, we wrote poetry making fun of it (The Cantebury Tales, Shakespeare). I personally argue that the left/right divide is a product of race-wide psychological trauma, but if we're going to employ that terminology, then yes: there should be a place in society for the left. I like the weirdos. Things get too stuffy if you don't have some tranny weirdo doing a spoken word interpretation of Beethoven on stage somewhere.

What I don't like is the weirdos being empowered to tear down the foundations of our society. Particularly not when there's an outside group doing so for their own dark ends.

Quote: Captain Marvel co-director Anna Boden: It is not just a feminist movie

Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson releases on March 8.

Captain Marvel co-director Anna Boden believes the much-awaited Marvel superhero film has more to it than just being a “feminist” movie.

Boden has co-directed the Brie Larson-fronted movie with Ryan Fleck.

The filmmaker said working with Larson was a pleasure as she brought uniqueness and a personal touch to the character of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel.

“It’s not just a feminist movie. It’s also a humanist movie. As I have said before, Brie Larson in this role is so important because she is such a strong, such a dynamic and complex person and woman. She brings so much of that to the role.

“… It was great to go on that journey with her and create Captain Marvel and just think about her as somebody who’s very specific and very unique. She doesn’t have to be every woman, but she does capture something about what it means to be a woman and what it means to be a powerful woman and ultimately what it means to be human,” Boden said in a statement.

...

As per the comics, Danvers is a US Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident, which imbues her with the powers of superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight.

The director said the film is about a woman who learns to “embrace herself and her own independence”.

“That’s about separating from the ideas of what she should be that have come before, either in her past as a human in the Air Force or as a Kree soldier. She really learns to find her true power when [b]she accepts and embraces all the parts of her true self,”
she added.

Boden said she was drawn to the story as it was about an independent female character.

“One of the things that drew us to the character for sure was the fact that she was a really powerful, really interesting, really unique and independent female character. We are so excited to be telling this story about somebody who’s not just powerful but also really complicated and really interesting and really human,” she said.

The film will also feature Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury without his iconic eye-patch, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace.

It will release on March 8 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

< I like leftie guys like Seth McFarlane, Tim Pool and a few others - why? Because they have good content and they are not dogmatic, they even talk to the right keeping an open mind in an open battlefield of ideas. That is why people also like The Orville of McFarlane despite him adding some leftie propaganda in it. It's watchable because it has the good metrics available and no surprise that it's created by a guy who is part of the sane left.

And the STD series of Star Trek is created by the insane globohome left and is unwatchable.
