There's a scene in Wonder Woman where a sniper is in the belfry of a church, which ends with the upper levels of the church destroyed, with Wonder Woman standing atop the church ruins, with the people praising her (as a Goddess).


Just because asbestos isn't obviously toxic, doesn't mean it won't still give you cancer.
That's just one interpretation. It doesn't have to be the church being torn down by a woman, it could just be that the church steeple is the highest point in town and natural spot for a sniper.

And the people aren't praising her, they're thankful she just helped save them. If they were worshiping her, they would be attending to her at the party later (like when Neo goes to Zion in Matrix 2) but they largely left her alone. And, a little later, she gets a dick down by Steve.

People go too far in their theories sometimes.

But to Rotten Tomatoes, it's a garbage woke website and I'll be happy when it shuts down.
Turns out that while Rotten Tomatoes is owned by Fandango (which is in turn owned by Comcast & not Disney). Half the 'executive team' of Fandango used to work for Disney...
& 'The Mouse' was no doubt displeased at the poor reception for Captain Marvel.

Cliff notes from this :

Thanks, that makes sense.

Martin Scorsese also has spoken out against the site too saying it has nothing to do with actual film criticsm. He wrote an article on it once and the comments were full of purist fanboy critics calling him an old fart. Please, the man has been making films long before they were born.
 
At this stage it would be a source of joy to see movies like Captain Marvel or the Star Wars franchise tank. But ultimately it will depend on the normies and whether they will fall for it. The fem-Ghostbusters only turned a loss because the movie was too expensive. There were enough normies to waltz in that crap driven by the good name of the previous movies. The same is likely true with Captain Social Justice. Ultimately this is the beginning of the end of Marvel.

Note that Squirrel Girl and Muslim Miss Marvel is in the works already. Most of the old beloved MCU actors are going to be killed off in the next Avengers and they will be replaced by shitty stupid social justice ones. Heck - they may even turn Black Panther into a woman like they did in the comics - the "super-genius-sister" becomes the next Black Panther showing Wakanda what's what.

The worst is yet to come until the public just drops the crap.

The jig is up for Hollywood unless they start churning our some damn original content. Everything is a revamp. Everything is token PC and leftism. Eventually even normies will get bored of this stuff, and the either have to go back to the way things were, or try to bump it up another notch. I feel the latter is the route they will prefer.

Estimated budget for Captain Misandrist : $152 million USD
As such, it will probably require ~450 million to break even.

Ant-Man 2 made - $622,674,139, when it & he was an established property. Plus a small post Infinity War boost.
Ant-Man 1 made - $519,311,965 when it wasn't an established property or an established character.
While Thor 1 made - $449,326,618 & Captain America 1 made - $370,569,774, when both were new, non-established characters.
However, neither Thor, nor Captain America, nor Ant-Man, had insulted half the audience...
 

Hilarious and sarcastic.

And this one is also good:


He compares actors to dancing monkeys who are supposed to simply perform and not lecture.

And Marvel/Disney is just testing the waters of how much shit the public will take. If the people go into those movies after seeing Disney taking a dump on their movie pizza - well then they are going to give you more shit pizza. They create top-down propaganda myths that are ordering you to like Captain Marvel.

In the previous movies they simply added some points here and there of how Asgard was not created by some semi-godlike beings, no it was stolen and robbed somehow from other nations. They added those smaller points, they change the Nordic mythology into whatever changing races and cultures, because everyone knows that Whitey has no culture. Wakandans have a wonderful culture, but Whitey is at the bottom of the social justice caste system.

If this piece of a shit movie succeeds in any way, then they are going to revv up the propaganda and in truth they will attempt to do so anyway in the next movies.

Grace Randolph, herself pretty feminist, says the movie is basically a feminist Mary Sue who is ridiculously overpowered, learns all skills immediately and defeats her enemies with ease. And Brie can't do the signature Marvel movie comedy role, every time she tries it falls flat. It creates a movie with no tension, no drama and no possibility of failure. By the end, the audience was silent during the whole final battle. Not in awe of a great movie unfolding, but just bored and wanting it to be over.

It doesn't fit the hero's journey narrative, which is deeply engrained in the human psyche, in which a BOY goes into the world and becomes a man via combat and sacrifice. The female version of that is that a girl goes into the world and finds true love and acceptance. When you try to switch those narratives, people end up confused or bored. No matter how much you try to razzle dazzle it.

I wonder if there is even a way to make the hero myth even applicable to a woman. A young somewhat attractive woman has already a massive value relative to a boy who is nothing. If you think about the big stories of female heroes it's often a girl who is maligned, but in reality a princess or diamond in the rough - all she needed to be is given a chance and she could shine all while having strong female characters like patience, virtue, love and compassion.

Even the new compelling narrations usually have a woman barely scraping for survival like in Aliens or Terminator. She does what she can to survive, not because she was empowered by some grand hero arc.

And that is why the stories work - they simply fall flat when you try to tell the story of the superwoman. Even Superman - the original - not the less stellar reboot - he is a different kind of hero. He is born with extraordinary skills, but he becomes charming by being the humble positive farm-boy, who pretends to be a klutz. His strength comes from his humility and pure restraint where he has to grit his teeth and get teased by the football team as he cannot participate in the game as he would want to. His heroism is of a slightly different form, but it works because he is a creation of light, pure goodness and humble nature. The gritty workout and determination is reserved for Batman.

But none of those things really make sense for women.

The capture shows what a plain post-wall dyke she is.
 
This Brie Lawson fiasco is hilarious
Is Capt. Marvel's enemy literally the intergalactic patriarchy?
Jordan Peterson would be a cool villian to fight her toxic feminism lol

Even Gawker network put out a review of it which was....bad. They were trying as hard as hell to rationalize it by saying it was "uninspired" but the actual text reads like the reviewer it was bored out of their minds watching it.

Grace Randolph is a basic gatekeeper fangirl who like every other film gatekeeper (read: purist fanboy/fangirl) has a job and that's to make sure no other film franchise does a shared universe concept differently than the MCU and Marvel should be the only way to do it.

She didn't get banned from doing a "race-bending" comment when she complained about Tessa Thompson getting the role of Lady in the Tramp suggesting they were race-bending the dogs.

I'm still not paying to see an MCU film after what I learned last year in regards to Infinity War.

Safe Space for MCU Movies with Bad Endings

This is fucking bad. You're essentially coddling people over a movie. If you can't handle a bad ending to a movie, how the FUCK are you going to handle bad things in real life?

Heh. Over the last couple of days, the movie is getting shredded with a shitload of negative reviews, comments or tweets. :lol:








 



Turns out that Disney does not want to shred it's cash cow so quickly. They already did it with Star Wars - if they deliberately tank Marvel, then it's billions going poof.

They supposedly did reshoots of Avengers where Captain Social Justice was given a much smaller role and did not clobber Thanos into matriarchal submission. Also if Carl Manvers succeeds, then they were planning on rolling out an all-female Avengers.

In my opinion it will be a clusterfuck either way and it's only a matter of time before the fucktards go in full social justice and tank the franchise. Meanwhile DC will pick up their business and surprise us all by making watchable superhero movies. Aquaman was only the beginning - they hire no-nonsense Chinese creators and cater to the real market - not some imagined feminazi-fairy-land.
