How Far Should Conservatives Support Of Cinema Go?

To say that Hollywood has burned its bridge with Middle America is a damn understatement. Hollywood celebrities do not shy away from virtuing their contempt for people who don’t share their political views. Some have made it a secondary career to show how much they detest conservative values. So when you have a film like 12 Strong, a film that normally would grab the eye of right-wing audiences, they are just as quickly turned off by the stars of the film, like Michael Shannon.

How Disney’s Star Wars Has Failed Its Diverse Characters

The only identity that Disney has established with their Star Wars universe is one thing…Diversity. Disney loves waving the big, bright flag of diversity when talking about their movies. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was sold as a new direction featuring strong female characters and an array of minority characters within their cast.

The Revival of TRL Is Dead On Arrival

No Identity, No Buzz, No Great Content, and No viewership. The TRL revival looks to be short-lived if things don’t improve ASAP. The revival of TRL is one that sounds good on paper, but even if they have brought back everyone from the original show in the original format, you simply can’t bring back the era that was the late 90s and early 2000s and MTV is finding that out the hard way.
