they're still making money though, even though it's significantly less than they used to be. All us "sheep" need to stop going to theatres just because "OMG IT'S ANOTHER SUPER HERO MOVIE". There's still enough people who show up on opening weekend just because it's there and it's something to do. I remember when they did a study and proved that PG-13 movies were grossly more profitable than R-rated movies, but that didn't stop them from making R-rated stuff. So I don't suspect that "making less money" will stop them from supporting the feminist propaganda machine either.
I dont spend money on anything unless there is a personal return. Trying to insult me through film leads to me not purchasing tickets to see it. The answer is hollywood doesn't care because there will always be someone that loves it. If hollywood doesn't care then I dont care.
It's supply and demand. If those movies do not bring it money they will stop making them. Personally I do not understand why they have to twist and push it with things like batwoman, it was just never a female role and there is nothing wrong with that.
For a series like Men in Black to open to 28 million dollars when the first film opened to 50 million in 1997 dollars then you know something is wrong. Even women are coming out and saying they're nauseated by batwoman.
You are 100% correct about the idea of supply and demand but 2019 is being predicted to be the worst year in decades for summer blockbusters. I haven't been to the movies to see a sci-fi film since blade runner 2049 came out last year and i"m not going back to see a comic film until Joker comes out in October. That's almost a year. In the 2000s I used to go to the movies 3 or 4 times during the summer.
I guess it doesn't phase me as much, never been a fan of marvel and DC movies anyway.
The only thing I liked was spiderman but I hated the new movies so not much for me left there. Venom was cool tho.
Have an opinion?
I rarely watch movies, so I guess I really haven't noticed. I read your question and all the replies. Yesterday I was bored and binge watched the old Sanford and Son. I noticed that whenever they had a white character on the show, they were always complete morons. So I guess that's kind of what you're talking about, except now men in general are the morons? Are the black men made to be morons, also, or just the white men? Also, are any of the movies you mentioned on Netflix? (I won't pay to see ANY movie)
They forget who watches them, it's the producers behind the scenes.
Also men are starting get offended. If you eliminate half your audience and in some cases MOST of your audience,. you're doomed to fail. That's what's happening with Star Wars. They're alienating male fans but not replacing them with an equal amount of female fans so the series is tanking in quality. Then you have all out male hating like in Batwoman, Captain Marvel, Dark Phoenix, Ghostbusters and even Men in Black now has the male characters being total morons while the women are the smart ones with all the answers. The shit is nauseating at this point.
Oh I agree. I as a woman found captain marvel very condescending and offensive.
I personally don't think it's the material but just the lost art of moviegoing that's failing. People just don't spend there Friday nights at the movies as frequently anymore.
That's the same thing they said about music in the late 80s when music was garbage, that cassette tapes and MTV were destroying music when in reality it was that the music sucked. The 90s came , alternative rock was awesome and people started going to concerts and buying music again.
Haha well, that's true I suppose... but I just don't think it's the sjw thing that people think it is. I like strong female leads and where girls are having more authoritative figures. I think the material in movies is just not filling seats in theaters as quick as before. But overall i do think it's a valid point you bring up with MTV.
You didn't like it because it included nods to a society thats better than you, all the sane people didn't like it because its another unoriginal reboot that no one asked for.
A society that's better than me? What?
I didn't realize that the presence of women in any role besides sex object was being a warrior for social justice (and even then, funny how literal justice is a laughing point to so many)
Nice word twisting bruh... Were you among the morons a few years ago that said Ghostbusters was the first time women were allowed to be stars in sci-fi films? Because classics like Alien and Star Wars never happened right?
I don’t care either way. I just don’t watch stuff that doesn’t interest me.
You can't switch the actors around it'll never work it's like making a new Rocky movie using another actor it will bomb
I thought it was alright. Although some parts had me cringing a bit, it generally was good watch
Never - eventually they're going to start shaming people who don't go to the movies and call them sexist/racist
Hollywood studios are motivated solely by ticket sales. If Woke doesn't work they will go back to rebooting superhero franchises.
When people stop going to watch those gay ass movies.
Nothing wrong with SJW in movies
So why are so many of these movies failing? 2019 is predicted to be the worst year in decades for hollywood. Fox shut down all X-men movies because of how bad Dark Phoenix failed. Men in Black was nauseating. Batwoman is shaping up to be a flop. Shaft flopped. Captain Marvel 2 is now in limbo because how bad the first film got trashed by fans.
Fans are idiots
Not liking a movie makes me an idiot?
Dark Phoenix was a work of art
what drugs are you on? or are you trolling right now?
Trolling lol. It was okay.
lol ok that was funny then :p
In what way did it supposedly flop?
For example, Ghost Busters clearly made 85 million dollars. That's just a sign to the studio that making 'SJW' films is a profitable business. Same with Ocean's 8 (made 220 million) and the Star Wars films. All of them made massive amounts of money. So much for 'people being tired of it'.
28 million on a projected 30 million (which was already low), fan reviews are eviscerating it and it literally made HALF of the original's opening weekend. That's a flop.
@ronaldo75 globally, it has made 102.2 million just 8 million short of the budget. Like all the other 'SJW' films, it's gonna make a lot of money, which is enough reason to keep producing them
SJW-ism made George Lucas abandon Star Wars altogether and why are you leaving out the fact that fans are abandoning the star wars canon in DROVES. 85 million on a AAA title movie is a FLOP. Ghostbusters II made 215 million in 1989 dollars on a 25 million dollar budget. Ocean's 8 was the least profitable of the Ocean films wit 220 million and fans hated it. Oceans 11 made 450 million. Oceans 12 made 435 million. Oceans 13 398 Million. Third installments tend to make much less than first and second and STILL Oceans 13 outdid Oceans 8 by over 150 millions. Woke wahmen films don't work because the writing is so skewed and biased.
@ronaldo75 Lmfao.You're so clearly in denial and actually think these movies are a flop and not profitable. I guess you'll have many years left to get triggered, as these movies are a) clearly profitable and b) Studios are willing to make them.Can't wait for your rage at Captain Marvel 2 😂
I'm not raging over anything. You're extremely shortsighted. THis is opening up the market for writers like myself to write from the gut again without any PC bullshit. The little i've posted online just as short stories is already getting great comments. The more trash hollywood releases the better it is for independent writers. Also Captain marvel 2 is now on hold because of how bad Dark Phoenix tanked and how much the Avengers cast thing Brie Larson is an arrogant bitch.
Oh lol so you actually require films like these to rage over for your own stories. Lmfao. Oh, and I doubt any of that on Captain Marvel 2 is a) confirmed and b) I doubt the cast ever says she is a 'arrogant bitch', which basically implies that it's pure speculation
I know you're 19 but you should be more mature and stop putting words in people's mouths. It's a sign of weakness.
Of course, they're not going to use the words "arrogant bitch", that would get them all fired - especially the males. However it's well documented they dont like her.
They keep doubling down on this crap.
You can't switch the actors around it'll never work
