    Captain Marvel Backlash

    I know nothing about this superhero. I didn't even know she existed. I guess the woman who plays her in the movie is very... well, she comes off as a socialist and it is rubbing people the wrong way.

    Rotten Tomatoes deletes a lot of people's feedback because it was mostly negative. I don't intend on watching the movie but I find this all quite ironic.

    They keep pushing these female leads down out throats in movies and in shows while attaching a "poor me" victim card to them... I am sick of it all. This isn't empowering, it is embarrassing.

    I'm the farthest thing from an SJW & not a female....yet i still feel offended FOR women when Hollywood pulls shit like this. In a roundabout way they just keep reminding girls that they can't do x and y and z and that men should just give it to them. They could have all these amazing things and be equal if white men just provided it for them.
    There are a bunch of strong, successful, and happy/self-motivated women in my life, and not one of them buys into this stuff. If you're at the point where you take your emotional and inspirational cues from fictional superheroes and Hollywood actors, your problem isn't that you're female, your problem is that you're gullible. This is a character with superpowers beyond that of ANY human, how is a 10 year old girl supposed to apply that to her life?

    It's FINE to watch and have fun with a film! I just don't like them implying that anyone is obligated to support a film to facilitate change in society. Buying a movie ticket doesn't make women into men. Good parenting and an unbiased education will do far more to make them successful & happy members of society.

    I love your posts Korin, lol. When I get to work and check the forum while brewing my coffee you usually manage to get me Alex Jones-ing on whatever topic it is.

    I'm not a fan of Brie Larson's general attitude, and there are a number of things I dislike about the movie. (from spoilers. Haven't seen it yet, but my wife will probably want to go on discount tuesday next week)

    But, even though a little nerd drama is fun to watch, I try to stay as far removed from ground zero as possible. I don't trust that this nonsense isn't being played up by the media for ratings. I feel like getting too deep into it is playing into some sick game by media execs, and I don't like how these conflicts continue to sow discord among otherwise reasonable people. I don't like that the entertainment industry gets richer off the manipulated outrage of normal people.

    I went into a comic store to pick up Ms. Marvel. Woman at the counter asks me my opinion on Captain Marvel. I say that I've tried reading some of her stuff, but she's never been able to hook me. She shrugs casually, "ah, that's fair." We were two normal people with a differing opinion. And we didn't fight each other over it.


    That all said, I've heard the movie is about mid-tier in terms of MCU movies, and if you like MCU movies you'll probably like Captain Marvel. Carol Danvers herself isn't a terrible character, just an incredibly inconsistent one. Her being tied to the screwy history of the "Captain Marvel" title and being pushed, essentially, to ensure that the rights never get snatched up by DC, probably makes her feel artificial and hollow to a lot of casual fans.
    Life is demanding, without understanding.

    Honestly, I have zero interest in the movie and it isn't because of the so called "feminist" agenda. I just never cared for Captain Marvel. Even when the character was male and Carol Danvers was Ms. Marvel, I was completely apathetic to the character and was not someone who I followed as I was reading comics as a kid. Besides, everything I've seen from this movie just looks very bland and forgettable, the kind of movie that you're gonna forget about the moment you walk out of the theater. There are people out there who dig it and that's fine but I do not care at all about this movie's existence.

    I am not big on hero movies so it takes a lot for me to actually want to watch one. If a movie is bad, let people say it is bad. That is my problem here. Like mentioned above, we are told to like it simply because #WHAMEN but as a woman, I find it annoying. It pisses me off that hollywood has to play the whole "women aren't the princesses that need saving anymore card" while acting like men have to hand them everything because they are helpless. It makes no damn sense. These people are all sipping from the same punch bowl anymore and it ain't cute.

    I can see it from this angle too. While I stand by what I said up above, I also don't care about superhero movies so I had no interest in it in the first place (which bars me from having an opinion on the film itself). I've heard it was super bland and by-the-books. The only part of this whole thing I care about is the trash the actors and Hollywood folks were espousing. I should probably focus on things I like rather than the bad parts of things I don't care about, but this one is just so juicy.

    I'm the same with Hero movies, and agree with the rest. I'm sure you already knew that though.

    When actors or actresses act trashy or biased, it ruins films no matter how good they are.

    Remember the dude who got fired over tweets, the one who was directing that Guardians of the Galaxy movie ( or movies, I don't watch them) well, he got rehired and rightfully so. The crew of actors stood up for him and the fans rallies behind them as well. It was a feel good moment for everyone.

    What this actress is doing is diving people. Who would want to support that or any movie she is in? Not me.
