Fifty Shades Freed is better than Fifty Shades Darker in the same way Stage 3 lung cancer is better than Stage 4. If there is one thing this series succeeded in, its that we finally have a love story worse than Twilight.
Like many of you, I was watching Superbowl 52 (I refuse to congratulate the city of Philadelphia) and saw the trailer for The Cloverfield Paradox, a film that claims to explain the origins of the 2008 hit film Cloverfield. A secret Netflix exclusive seemed too good to pass up so I decided to do a last-minute review. For those of you who saw this trailer and thought that you were finally going to get the answers to your ten-year-old Cloverfield questions, I’m afraid you have been misled…again.

Remember the days where you could just watch a movie and decide whether you liked it or hated it? Well, those days could be over because political battles over certain films now threaten the idea of free speech if your opinion is chosen not to be accepted. Films or more especially film reviews have now become weaponized and politicized to such an absurd degree; it’s becoming clearer why theater attendance is at a two-decade low, It is turning off the general public. But a new fight over the film Black Panther, a film that is still two weeks away from release and only a few critics have seen is raising an issue that should concern critics and audiences alike.

So I first heard of this from Mundanematt, someone out there made a 47-Minute, ‘Womanless’ cut of The Last Jedi and the media got apoplectic over this. The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit (aka The Chauvinist Cut) has made its way around the internet and when I first heard this was a thing, I giggled, some including many of the stars of the film took the piss at it and many didn’t think it was that big of a deal…except the media who lost their shit. The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Inverse, Slate, The Wrap, AV Club …the vitriol was off the charts about this…So I had to watch it.
