    A range of attitudes and responses I think:
    -- How dare she get uppity? (the word "uppity" automatically marks you as a racist, it's just that kind of word)
    -- What does she have to complain about,...

    You mean like what happened to the Dixie Chicks when they criticized the Iraq War?

    Spencer Ackerman has a new book coming out where he pointed out that the worst period for Freedom of Speech in...

    To those who have seen the leak does the intro have the "Everybody knows" number that the theatrical version had?

    The stupidity of that in One Moment in Time is amazing.

    Actual footage of Quesada narrating it at Marvel:

    Anyway, here's the simple thing. The...

    Is that happening though?

    Obviously it shouldn't happen just for that reason. More likely what's happening or might happen is that film scholars who propose teaching classic westerns or classic...

    There's more to Griffith than The Birth of a Nation. It's absolutely true that Griffith is technically and visually a talented film director and that he made some films that are still worth seeing....

    Sure you meant the MU...but anyway I don't know what "butterfly effect" you mean here.



    Claremont's story undoing AVENGERS #200 is pretty good. There are plenty of other examples. The...

    Considering that we still have Lost Cause historiography believed by a lot of people and statues of Confederates are hard to tumble across the full nation, I am not sure it's easy to say even that.

    IF the rights' holders of GWTW are able to forward receipts of the profits of the film to a separate trust and an organization dedicated to civil rights, let's say the NAACP or BLM for sake of...

    Exactly. IN Europe, nobody wishes to burn those movies nor do critics consider them great movies. They are preserved as evidences of past complicity and anti-semitic evidence.

    SO Griffith, Gone...

    I don't know, so much of WandaVision was about WestView (notice the WV initials in both), and the longer you stretched it the bigger the issue of Wanda's powers torturing those people get to be...

    The reason why you have "evil Superman" is that...

    The reason why you have "evil Superman" is that he was institutionalized as a symbol of American Imperialism and Patriarchy in the '50s and '60s and so on, and as a major corporate logo. Once he goes...
  13. The other thing about Gone With the Wind and...

    The other thing about Gone With the Wind and treating it as a cultural document is that people just forget the reasons why the movie business worked the way they did.

    For one thing GWTW was made...
  14. Gone with the wind isn't even an especially good...

    Gone with the wind isn't even an especially good movie. It's way too long and slow for one thing. The performances are great as is the set design but the film lacks real direction (not surprisingly...

    Maybe, but anyway the world would be well short of them both. Regardless of who they are in real life, their existence is fundamentally parasitic and it's an act of living injustice for them to...

    Prince Harry has a controversial ping-pong history. He used to be a rowdy party dude drinking and tearing up. One time he wore a Nazi costume at a party...

    Vaughan is a fairly talented film-maker, and Layer Cake is a fun crime film. I wouldn't say he's great though.

    Even if it does, so what? Not everyone in the world likes Superman, and the ones who don't, we all agree I think, should not direct movies on Superman, right?



    Agreed. He definitely should...

    It's not ego if you feel that you wouldn't be the best fit for the material, that you should get out of the way, and you would much rather make movies and ideas that you are interested in (i.e....

    Would it be a fairy-wand that instantly creates a Godfather level movie the morning it goes into public domain? No.

    Given reasonable time you would see a Super-Renaissance for sure. You will also...

    Too much work for stuff that doesn't need that much work.

    Here's the thing, after OMD, there hasn't been any lasting or impactful story in continuity. You could read OMD, not read a single issue...

    By himself alone, Feige wouldn't have done much or anything. Remember he worked on some capacity on the Bryan Singer X-Men films, the Raimi Spider-Man movies, and also ASM Spider-Man, as well as...

    Nolan had the impression that Snyder was passionate and interested in making a Superman movie of the kind WB needed (something that would be commercial but would lead to a shared universe) and so he...

    Pretty much.

    The difference is that people in the UK, and I mean actual people, not just Tories and conservatives, actually really do love Queen Elizabeth, her grandson Prince William and Kate...
