PS: It's interesting there's no mention of Spider Man, so they don't plan a next movie, at least for now...


Probably they didn't yet find a handicapped LGBTQYZ multi-colored skin midget lesbian actress, to play the role.

The new 007's supposedly a black actress.

Also, does everyone think it's LESS racist that the new "little mermaid" is black in a sea of whites, or MORE racist that she will have to give up her voice and species to be accepted by a white male human?

Actually that's a bit overblown, as she will merely play his temporary replacement for the purpose of story. For now at least.

What makes me giggle is that they're supposedly casting a white male for the role of Triton. If they decided to blackwash, then they should at least go with the flow...

Btw, why don't they cast a black actress for the role of Mulan?

Heaven forbid a movie set in an African country have black people. Maybe Black Panther should be remade will an all Asian cast!

Doesn't one of Ariel's sisters have darker skin? Why not focus on her and make a completely different story if they want to do a 'black' little mermaid.

Also I mean okay sure I was okay with a black actor being 007. But canonically 007 has always been a male. Idk. Why not make a new agent entirely? And have this new agent be female instead of taking the iconic 007 title which has always belonged to a male.

Everyone has to rehash everything to be politically correct and people are too ***** to actually make something new.

Guess there is money to be made out of the controversy. In this case I do not particularly care since it doesn't bypass James Bond and tbh he was pretty much off his game in the last film. I would think that it is natural for agents to be replaced if they get rusty or there are better candidates.

See if there was an in universe reason for why Bond was being replaced then okay.

Out of universe it's because Daniel Craig does not want to be Bond anymore.

So as long as they give us a reason for the switch of the agent then I suppose I can let it slide. Male or female, white or black. As long as it is explained why the switch has been made in canon.

Because it sells, because it's a "fresh take", because it makes controversy, because it's right, because "everyone does it" etc. Plenty of reasons...

I meant in universe. I am well aware of the reasons in real life and the marketing behind it.

Don't really care about the actor, I just want a good director because the last 5 (or was it 7?) Bond movies have been utter ****. "Casino Royale" had some good moments... and that was it. All downhill from there... Well, maybe not all, you know, you can't possibly make something worse than "Quantum of solace" with the sort of budget they had... It's as if they suddenly forgot how to make entertaining movies!

Bad Times at El Royale - 8.5/10 - Brilliant! A quirky crime mystery/drama where four strangers check in to a motel and the twists and turns of the story slowly unfold. The style of the film is right up my street!

Crawl (2019) - 7/10

Predictable and clear in where it got its inspiration from, but enjoyably entertaining nonetheless.

It has a few good moments which make you jump and a semi-realistic storm depiction which, although doesn’t quite add to the tension, like the alligators, it does keep up the impending threat.

The story and acting are ok and the ending sort of fizzles out, but it achieves what it sets out to do in a good way.

He's just an insanely cool guy that dabbles in a lot of things. I'm buying CD PROJEKT RED's Cyberpunk 2077 game only because of him, he left that big of an impression! Relevant. The fact that he's filming for Matrix 4 is also mind-blowing to me. Can't wait.

Hoping Rey becomes a Sith in the upcoming movie. Kylo Ren is boring and so deserves to be the Jedi.

Not gonna happen, she is not nearly as interesting for that.

And Kylo, I cannot think of anything more embarrassing than switching sides at this point. Only respectable path is stay dark and grow out of his teen phase. And he'd be a decade late for that.

Yeah, I know. But I just think it could happen somehow, at least in Kylo's case. The pull of the light side and all.

Well, this is something that might "save" the trilogy. However you look at it that WOULD be a plot twist, she's OP so a character like this would be a threat to the galaxy. However I think it won't happen, her dark side scenes are probably from a dream of some kind (she already had those). And Kylo has even less charisma then Luke, so it fits light sides general look...

BTW "Joker" is getting exceptionally good reviews. Probably shouldn't miss that one.
