Everytime progressives get their hands on a beloved property; THEY decide that it’s time to change it to fit THEIR agenda. Then every time the fans of that property object to their agenda, they demonize those fans as the worst people on earth to deflect and shut down any criticism of their plans. Now Star Wars is the property that progressives have deemed needs to be changed to meet their standards and don’t you dare have a problem with it.
Star Wars is a dark place right now because if you look at the schedule of future movies, the next Star Wars film doesn’t come out until December of 2019. Disney is going to have to sit on this failure for 18 months. Even when we get the new trailer for Episode 9 whenever that is finished, the damage has been done.
Thanks to the Punisher, I became obsessed with street-level heroes like Spiderman, Daredevil, Blade, and the X-Men. I watched the cartoons, read the comics, I was hooked as a fan and never looked back. If you look at my story, I believe this is how the vast majority of people got hooked into the comic industry. A little over 20 years later the company I grew up loving has taken a hard 180 from what made it great.
Back in February, I wrote an editorial titled Is #MoveTheNeedle The Time For #Comicsgate To Step Up Or Step Aside? Conservative Youtuber Richard Meyer, commonly known as his YouTube name Diversity & Comics rose to fame last year on the back of his videos that criticized the work of various comic book creators (Mainly those under the umbrella of Marvel Comics).
In a recent interview with Vulture, Actor and Producer Seth Rogen doubled down on his commitment to promote progressive politics in his film and television projects. When asked if his perspective as a white guy not being the most relevant to these larger cultural discussions such as the #MeToo movement (Yes, this was a real question)
At a certain point, I have to ask myself “Who are these movies for?” Obviously, I’m not the target audience for this movie but it looks like 2/3rds of the people who are in the target audience find it dumb or not quite woke (SJW) enough. I mean, I really don’t want to defend Amy Schumer here but at what point will people like Schumer realize that pandering to progressives isn’t worth it and start making movies for us normies again? One thing is certain, nobody wins when films like this are released…the actors, the moviegoers, and Hollywood’s domestic box office all take an L.
I recently watched Steven Crowder’s latest video “A QUIET PLACE’ MOVIE REVIEW: Why Liberals HATE It…” and thought to myself “this doesn’t sound right”. A Quiet Place got pretty solid reviews across the board and I even gave it a 4/5. Not to mention that both John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are liberals themselves and I don’t see them making a movie that would offend their own point of view. Well, it turns out it isn’t liberals that have a problem with the film, it’s their problematic inbred cousin, the progressive left, who if left alone for more than 3 minutes will find offense in something.
According to The LA Times, In 2016, Chinese investment in the U.S. entertainment industry hit $4.78 billion, an all-time high. If you were planning on waiting out the storm, I’m afraid I have some bad news because Hollywood has now found a new target audience and market to pander to, this time…It’s Saudi Arabia.
