Re: Woke just died at the Box Office


I still think they see a day, where there's almost no free-market risk to doing this sort of thing.

They'll have something like a state controlled Netflix, and that's where the officially approved and sanctioned movies and tv shows'll be. There won't be any competitors allowed, to show them up.
 
As it is now, there can be alot of social pressure to try to keep people in line, but eventually they'll get tired of that, and just clamp down when they can.

Competition will only be with other types of (officially sanctioned) activities.

That sounds like the programming depicted in the Amazon Prime version of The Man in the High Castle. State TV is not quite here yet, but it is coming. If it could be 1950s censorship, I might actually go for that:

At least the women were feminine. The gender neutral fare we will get instead will be intolerable.

The Man in the High Castle" - is that a good series? Just your opinion, if you don't mind, Spike.

"I still think they see a day, where there's almost no free-market risk to doing this sort of thing." - Gr33n.

One version of that day has come, Gr33n - a type of Comic has turned to a much more free-market version. It uses old-fashioned manly men and feminine women.

I saw that evolve quickly, in just a few years, during a time as I followed some Comics creators. I started with a vid creator called "Diversity in Comics" a few years ago.

His vids discussed Comics historically and discussed how he was into self publishing and distributing them, along with vids that combatted the PC takeover of the the Comics industry that grew since WW II, with the two biggest companies being DC and Marvell.

He ended up changing his "username" several times, as the PC enemy kept attacking his vids and as YouTube started attacking anti-PC sites more and more, even way back then.

At this point, there are now several comics being self-published, and that sector has been growing as various artists and writers in that genre contact the pioneers in that new sector, who are easy to reach as they use YouTube to reach new customers.

One reason they're attracting attention from the guys working the standard Comics biz, because some who're doing this themselves, are making more bucks by using crowd-funding and pre-orders, than many in the standard Comics biz are making.

Another reason is that the new style of PC Comics simply turns many off. The older style reaches out and touches many who populate that Comics-world.

Yeah, maybe they'll be considered illegal contraband at some point... Like Cuban cigars or weed was..

Just an example of how open Disney is: (The director of Loki)
Image
Image

Now Loki, encounters multidimensional versions of himself. All of the males are incompetent losers, of course. (as are all of the males in the show, it seems). But the rare, scrawny 5ft female version of himself. She's far more dangerous, smarter, more powerful, etc..
And he spends the show tagging along with her, and falling in love with her.. (incest?)

She's the only one who could get the drop on Hunter C-20, the baddest-est time cop ever! She's kickin' arse, and takin' names!!
Image
^And looking like she's playing dress-up, with her dad's clothes...
And of course, Hunter B-15, another bestest ever..


It's full of {DUN Dun dunnnn}, takes off helmet, to reveal a woman.. Of course it is! What else would you expect?!"

Still, I'm surprised Loki's depicted as so incompetent, considering he's officially Bi, and all...

Like alot of people have pointed out, it's not a self-deprecating sort of humor.. You can kinda sense the spite and animosity behind alot of it.

Re: Woke just died at the Box Office


He-Man was kinda before my time, at least to become a fan.. (Although, as a kid, we did have the related toys in the attic)

So, the Netflix revival of it, apparently kills He-Man off in the very beginning... And it becomes the Teela (man of arms) Show. (and her girlfriend of color)

So the show is fully about her, and at the very end, she needs to go to "(Heaven?) to retrieve something to do with the sword.. Prince Adam's there (He-Man's twink form)(and apparently totally gay here), and decides to return with Teela, because the world still needs him..

When they arrive, just as he was about to transform into He-Man using the sword, he's killed by Skeletor.. And for goodsies this time, as the other former He-Men explain, he died a mortal death in his Prince Adam form, and there's no coming back. His time has now officially passed.

Which opens the door for Teela, to become the new (S)He-Man..

And it doesn't seem like it's a set-up for another failed season, where he returns.. The director, Kevin Smith went out of his way to try to compare his death to Tony Stark at the end of Avengers, where he gave his life to save humanity..

Except, as many pointed out, Stark had a decade's worth of story-arc before he sacrificed himself...*

*...And paved the way for the little girl of color to take over as Iron-Person.. (er, Iron Heart)

Re: Woke just died at the Box Office


Yeah, sometimes it seemed like people were reaching a bit for some of this stuff.. But now, they're just all-out trolling...

For some quick proof, (for anyone bored enough to check) here's a traditional SJW reviewer, (at 5:20) pointing out that they don't have a single male lead or supporting character.. And how that's odd, considering She-Ra was the female He-Man show, and the reboot was full of females.. (complete with She-Ra's full on lesbian love-life)

Of course, she wasn't calling them out for sexism.. Just complaining that they were queer-bating with the half-assed lesbian relationship with her side-kick.. And if they weren't gonna do it well, they should've thrown males a bone, and made the character a guy.

At any rate, hopefully Kevin Smith gets plenty of backlash for it. (I'm sure he's happy to see its (fully expected) 95% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes though)
