    Politics vs being a criminal... yeah, it’s almost like there’s a bit of a difference.

    so much this. I go and see a movie because I like the movie, not because of what the actors personally believe. hell, you're not gonna stop me listening to Michael Jackson - sure, he was pretty fuckin creepy but yeah still a good musician

Also its alot more accurate to the comics then all the changes they did with captain marvel.
    I didn't really have an issue with a sexually liberated woman banging the first hot guy she meets, he is just lucky he got to die before they had to like, settle down and find an apartment and realize they have nothing in common. It's as "romantic" as Titanic.

    Yeah the whole Ares killing all the gods and Zeus making Diana as a weapon was pretty dumb. I could only see it possibly making sense if Ares just goaded/influenced everyone into killing each other and Zeus only realized it to late to do anything in his weakend state and the human/amazon part of Diana is actually what makes her capable of taking on and killing Ares as she isn't restricted to one gimmick like most gods. The lighting thing I think is just to show she is the daughter of Zeus while her anger was to show the Amazons are not these perfect beings they are just like humans also.
    The god of war being better at fighting than gods of other stuff and Diana not being bound by that same limitation is workable, though not sure how that interacts with other demigods of the time. Maybe because she wasn't drafted into the Pantheon and assigned a role. It's also worth noting that Ares was severely weakened by the war and never recovered.

    Mostly though, it's worth remembering that Snyder was somewhat involved in WW and it shows in that ending. The main issue I had with the ending really was the sword gets destroyed, but isn't it the same sword she has later on? Does she get a new sword forged and if so is it any better than a sword ordered online? ("It's an amazonian sword" "no, you ordered it on Amazon, there's a differece!") I don't mind that the power was in her all along, fairly standard trope/ setup, but destroying the sword wasn't needed for that I think.

    Cosby cost the cast a lot of money, and I don't see anyone giving Roseanne another shot. Granted that's TV, not a movie, but a lot of this stuff only goes to the one side. You can be "women power!" or "black power!" but try it with "white power" and see the crowd go quiet.

    I didn't think the reviewer stuff was a big deal really. I always find the "this movie isn't for you" crap to be just that, crap. Unless you're letting your little girl walk to the theater to see Wrinkle In Time by herself, the movie does need to have something for adults in it. Most childrens programming has adult-oriented jokes/ material in it on some level for that reason. The idea that your target audience is your only audience is ignorant. But, it didn't like, offend me. I figured the movie would be okay, and it was okay, and so be it.

    I did find the "smile" backlash to ring of Gamergate style over reaction. Instead of a reply of "kree don't smile", it's "oh, so all women are just dolls to you, to sit around and look pretty so you can masturbate in your parents basement, huh loser?" As for how it affected the final product, I think it had some of the same "acting in a box" that plagued the star wars prequels. Didn't seem like actors were in the same scene at times.

    because the very term "white power" has been wholly corrupted by organisations like the KKK and others. plus, let's be honest: white men have basically run the world for the last few hundred years and now that women and people with different coloured skin are wanting equality - not female dominance, not white men losing their place in the world but equality - people are up in arms about it.

    Right, so you agree that there is a double standard for such things, you just think it's justified. So if an actor was out there talking about white power and preserving european culture and other such buzzwords, would you ignore it and see the movie, or boycott?

    The amount of ignorance and veiled racism contained in this post is not unexpected.

    Me too.

    I usually assume actors are nuts until they adequately display otherwise. Hell, I'm still wondering if/when RDJ will implode.

    The real test:
    Can you re-watch Beetlejuice or Ferris Bueller's Day Off even though Jeffrey Jones is in it?

    Again? I figure he had enough self destruction already, he spent a decade on it, hard to figure on it recurring.

    I think he's learned his lesson and is probably extremely grateful for the success and life that he has now.

    I can watch those movies with Jones in it. Hell, love Mom and Dad Save the World.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    I don't know what Jones did, so as long as you don't tell me and I don't google it, sure!
    I honestly can't remember the last Mel Gibson movie I watched, but then I don't watch a lot of movies. I was never a big fan, really.

    Those are fucking classics. Of course I still watch them.

    Not sure if you just didn't keep track of the topic, or... well, really it's off topic and we're not supposed to be talking about it, but in either case, the amount of "ignorance and veiled racism" contained in the post is intentional. We're discussing when actors do such things, duh. Anyway, back to the main topic I guess, let's all return to talking about how average Captain Marvel is!

    Agreed.

    I watched it just to see the backstory to CM before Endgame hits. I found it... exceedingly meh. The pop culture 90s references were EVERYWHERE and felt so damn forced... I grew up in the 90s, I don't need giant flashing neon signs of NOSTALGIA, Marvel, thanks - subtletly is the best policy. The acting was fine throughout, but the plot felt so flat and dry to me. The whole villian plot twist felt so predictable, and none of the villains ever felt dangerous or threatening. My favorite scenes involved a CGI cat named Goose, and I think that one sentence sums up my experience with the film. 6/10.

    I don't re-watch a lot of movies so these situations don't come up for me that often. BJ and Ferris do unreel in my head from time to time though. Same thing with Bill Cosby stuff. His jokes still pop into my head because I grew up listening to his comedy.

    I did watch Deadwood for the first time last year. Jones only had a supporting role but it was hard not being disappointed in him. I also didn't realize until just recently that he was cast on the show after his legal troubles started which fucking weirds me out.
