The fastest way to guarantee a bad review for a television show or movie…be patriotic.

The film First Man is a story about the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969. Unfortunately, it is also a movie that is gaining attention for all the wrong reasons. More especially it is gaining attention for what the film has chosen not to show than what it will.
The Guardians situation puts Disney/Marvel in a very tough spot with their Avengers 4 movie which is slated for release on May 3, 2019. Most of the film has already been shot but there are reshoots that have been ordered before the film’s release. With the only surviving Guardians cast members being Raccoon and Nebula after the events of Infinity Wars, the question could be will Disney rewrite the script in order to keep certain characters dead?
I wasn’t expecting a political debate about a borderline throwaway film released during Labor Day Weekend (a graveyard for cinema) yet here I am. Kin, a movie about a boy who finds an alien gun and gets caught up against a bunch of bad people is in theaters on Thursday. I saw the film and enjoyed it, however, I was a bit surprised by the negative reaction behind it. I mean the movie definitely has flaws, but it wasn’t a bad film by any means.
Rotten Tomatoes is now moving forward to correct their white male ‘problem’ with a new inclusion initiative. In a new report by Variety titled How Rotten Tomatoes Plans to Shake Up White Male-Dominated Film Criticism, Rotten Tomatoes is changing its criteria to include new media platforms, such as podcasts and streaming shows, as opposed to only boasting written notices.
The progressive left’s need to control the industry will lead to one of three things. First, fans will get so fed up, they will leave the industry and not come back until it is in someone else’s hands. Second, fans will get so desperate for alternative content, they will look elsewhere. This will lead to independent content creators getting more attention than ever before and instead of brand loyalty to Marvel and DC, it will be loyalty on an individual basis which is probably going to be the future of comics if more people follow Richard Meyer’s example.
In a exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter, The production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is being put on hold for the time being as Marvel and Disney regroup on the project. While sources say the plan is to find a new director for the project and rethink the direction of the film, Crew members who were assembling in Atlanta for per-production, are being dismissed and are free to look for new work.
What is so odd about the film A.X.L. is that we essentially know nothing about this film. I can’t recall any trailers or marketing for this film leading up to its release. As of this writing, I don’t even believe there has even been a rumored budget of the film. All of this sounds like Global Road Entertainment really didn’t have any faith in this movie at all and it’s not hard to see why.
