Kind of an overblown title and a topic that's hardly press-stopping.


To be frank, I don't care the way they want me to care, and I don't watch movies either. But if someone really ever wanted to press me on it, I'd say it's less a white thing and more of a Jew thing.

Speaking of Fantastic Flop, internet mill's saying that the movie had a willfully poor production value and Josh Trank is such a basket case that he got fired by Disney from the upcoming Star Wars movies.

Kate Mara was on with Kelly Ripa and she said that nobody in the crowd at Comic-Con noticed them outside their panel.

I don't really feel sorry about what Fox has done for the same reasons that despite being Asian I'm not really railing for more Asian-Americans in Hollywood. Capeshit's a business just like show business is a business, and unless the diversity crowd can bend the producers' ears in the future (which they might), it won't matter if they're already controlling the art and letters in the comics themselves, because all the Kamala Khan or Miles Morales or whatever merch isn't going to cut it for the bottom line. Their respective top audience demographics that bring in the most bucks are neither minorities nor women.

Just off the top of my head, I was thinking of Sanaa Lathan's character in the first Aliens Vs. Predator movie. Yeah, the movie was not Oscar material, but it wasn't bad, and she did a wonderful job with what she had to work with. Black, female, action-movie star.

Anderson in Ender's Game was black, I don't remember her or Graff even having race mentioned in the book. It was a good casting call.

I think a lot of the problem is that roles are either written for characters that couldn't really easily be race-switched because they're written to have a certain background (How to make a lower-middle-class wannabe-soldier like Captain America black, without turning it into a racial commentary on 1940s Brooklyn?) , or that they're heavily (badly) stereotypical.

I haven't read the comics, was Iron Man's buddy Rhodes white? Wouldn't have mattered, really, and that was an example of a role that literally any race could have played, and played well. Same with Falcon. The Matrix was all over the place, and well-cast as well.

But then, you also have the Fast and Furious movies, which are diverse as hell, but they're all fairly stupid stereotypes, too. Big muscly guys, cars and hoes, lotsa booze, etc... It's not helping the situation when folks of Race B are acting in movies that make them all look like assholes or fools.

I don't have a problem with the Human Torch being black, I have a problem if that characterization turns, for lack of a gentler way to phrase it, into gangsta ghetto trash. It's the culture, not the skin color, and separating the two in film seems to be a very tricky thing.

I mean, look at the two Bad Boys movies. Black heroes, but instead of being cool, professional, and upstanding, you've got Martin Lawrence. Will Smith yelled a lot, but I'd be angry and yelling too, if I had to deal with that number of gunfights and an utterly fucktarded partner. But how do I, as a white guy, write a movie where there's a proper (let's say "equal to the demographic disposition of America") number of females and blacks, if the current crop of black actors is of a certain culture, but I'm writing a movie about some calm, collected scientists and soldiers dealing with an alien invasion?

I mean, I'm a few thousand words into a story about an alien invasion. Let's say the book (which I'll probably never finish, because I'm lazy as fuck) is a huge hit, and they want it adapted into a movie. Let's say that I'm not really the type to talk much about the skin tones of my characters, so the character of "Paul Stone, radioastronomer, audiophile, and all-around average guy who gets tapped to be on the First Contact team by his local gov't " gets played by a black guy. Easily doable, right up to the point where they start decidin

From the first link.

>film lovers wanting to see change in Hollywood have the opportunity to vote with their dollars. So whether you’re supporting Michael B. Jordan in Fantastic Four or Meryl Streep in Ricki and the Flash, make your moviegoing bucks count for something this weekend.

Most film lovers and goers might want change but they want a good movie more.

Both those movies are just going by ranking alone fucking terrible. Really fucking terrible in the case of Fant4stic and average to bad for Ricki and the Flash. They are bad movies. Ricki and the Flash was apparently a poorly written Diablow Cody movie and Fant4stic was a jumbled mess made by some immature asshole. Also The Thing without pants.

They aren't bad movies because black Johnny Storm or because there is a vagina in the movie not about the Scarlett Speedster, they are just bad. And people shouldn't expect people to watch bad movies just because they have minorities or women.

If movies starring or made by minorities and women are good then it stands to reason if we carry the one, reverse the polarity on the proton couplers that those movies will have people watching them. People watch movies with Denzel Washington when they are good. People watch movies made by Robert Rodrigious and Del Toro when they are good and mostly stopped when Rob made shitty Spy Kids and shitty NotShirtlessShirtlessWerewolfBoy and RedheadLoliGirl. Oprah movies get watched by buttloads of people even if they rewrite history.

Most people watching movies don't give a shite if the main actor or actress is white or negroid or male or woman. Most people watching movies watch because it looks like a good movie or because they like the main actor/actress.

Now right now most big name actors and actresses are white. But they aren't big names because they are white, its because people enjoy their performances.

>was Iron Man's buddy Rhodes white?

No. And neither was Falcon.

My only issue is when the actor, presence-wise, doesn't fit the role; Don Cheadle's a fine actor. For certain roles; "military man" is not one of them, IMO.

Same goes for Will Smith, Martin Lawrence & Jamie Foxx. None of them suspend my disbelief that they are supposed to be "action stars." I primarily see them as comedians.

Terrence Howard? Yes, I can see him as an action star/military man. Michael Jai White? Yes. Denzel Washington? Yes (and Goddamn if he hasn't played military men convincingly). Tucker Smallwood (Commodore Ross in "Space: Above & Beyond")? Yes.

Cost Of Living In America Today Vs. 1980
Published on Jul 20, 2015 https://youtu.be/dmUV5hnwQTM
Most living expenses have gone up in price since 1980 (even when you adjust for inflation). That includes cars, homes, education – almost everything, except for our paychecks. Here's why paying for a house, a car and a college degree was possible in 1980 – but not so much today.

I guess they have elevated corporate cock-sucking to a science?
Nah, it's still an art, premised on lies propagated by well-financed pundits and shameless sycophants.

The evidence is clear: increasing the minimum wage doesn't cost jobs - Increases to the minimum wage do one thing: make life better for the low paid. They don't cause unemployment, no matter what big business says. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/11/the-evidence-is-clear-increasing-the-minimum-wage-doesnt-cause-unemployment

Minimum Wage Mythbusters: http://www.dol.gov/minwage/mythbuster.htm
Myth: Increasing the minimum wage will cause people to lose their jobs.
Not true: A review of 64 studies on minimum wage increases found no discernable effect on employment. Additionally, more than 600 economists, seven of them Nobel Prize winners in economics, have signed onto a letter in support of raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016.

Myth: Small business owners can't afford to pay their workers more, and therefore don't support an increase in the minimum wage.
Not true: A June 2014 survey found that more than 3 out of 5 small business owners support increasing the minimum wage to $10.10. Small business owners believe that a higher minimum wage would benefit business in important ways: 58% say raising the minimum wage would increase consumer purchasing power. 56% say raising the minimum wage would help the economy. In addition, 53% agree that with a higher minimum wage, businesses would benefit from lower employee turnover, increased productivity and customer satisfaction.

Gf and I want to see this.

Judging from the thumbnail, that is a movie about an outbreak of space-herpes in a small midwestern town, and that girl there is patient zero who sucked off an alien and now is spreading the space-herpes to everyone in town?

I'm not going to watch the trailer now because I'm sure thats way more interesting than what it really is.
