Actual Emmy winner who essentially has a career entirely on the strength of "she's Kate Spade's niece and is Quirky"

Like, no, this is what she deserves

e: I don't even necessarily think Brosnahan's a bad actress, she's fine I guess, I'm just incredibly loving sick of this whole thing where art and media are just a way for "high society" families to wave their dicks at everybody. Everyone pretends you're allowed to make art or media if you're poor, but if you try to do that as a job without being uber-rich, you will starve because not a drat soul on Earth will ever look at anything you make; the pretense is just there to create more bodies to throw into the below-the-line meat grinder, if people know how to play the game, and create "lolcows" like Neil Breen or Tommy Wiseau or Chris-chan out of people who don't.

The people who have come from humble backgrounds and managed to genuinely succeed, without caveats, in media and art are essentially lottery winners, they're such extreme outliers. Though I will say, it's sort of funny that Raimi directed this because he's, to my knowledge, one of those outliers; his career basically hinges on him getting extremely, absurdly lucky with a horror movie made on pocket change.

Another article on Quiby and its spectacular failure, has a lot of amazing anecdotes about Katzenberg being an S-Tier rich idiot, because of course

https://www.vulture.com/2020/07/is-anyone-watching-quibi.html

quote:

Before Quibi even had a name, Katzenberg was singing the gospel of chapterized stories for your cell phone. “I believe there is going to be an enterprise ten years from now that will be as big as the television business is today,” he told a conference crowd in early 2017. He viewed the success of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, with its 105 chapters, as validation of the thesis that consumers want entertainment in small chunks. He believed that, despite most shortform video sites’ reliance on user-generated content, every medium has room for a premium offering. And he considered the TV streamers to be playing a different game altogether than what he was envisioning.

quote:

The investments helped secure a slate of A-list directors and producers for the launch of the app, which was no longer called NewTV. (It turned out — whoops — that there was already a company named NewTV.) The new name was Quibi. Katzenberg had originally wanted to call it Omakase, after the sushi tasting menus he enjoyed at least once a week at Nobu Malibu. “That would have really won over Wisconsin,” a former insider notes. Ultimately, Quibi won the day. “They never asked staff to weigh in on it,” this person says. “People on staff thought it was cringey and would ask, ‘Is it too late to change it?’ Meg loved it.” Though arguably no sillier-sounding than Hulu, Quibi would be roundly mocked by people who thought it sounded like a “quinoa-based doggy snack” or “the cry of an attacking Ewok.”

quote:

People have wondered why Katzenberg and Whitman, in their late and early 60s, respectively, and not very active on social media, would believe they have uniquely penetrating insight into the unacknowledged desires of young people. When I ask Whitman what TV shows she watches, she responds, “I’m not sure I’d classify myself as an entertainment enthusiast.” But any particular shows she likes? “Grant,” she offered. “On the History Channel. It’s about President Grant.”

quote:

Katzenberg is on his phone all the time, but he is also among the moguls of his generation who have their emails printed out (and vertically folded, for some reason) by an assistant. In enthusing about what a show could mean for Quibi, Katzenberg would repeatedly invoke the same handful of musty touchstones — America’s Funniest Home Videos, Siskel and Ebert, and Jane Fonda’s exercise tapes. When Gal Gadot came to the offices and delivered an impassioned speech about wanting to elevate the voices of girls and women, Katzenberg wondered aloud whether she might become the new Jane Fonda and do a workout series for Quibi. (“Apparently, her face fell,” says a person briefed on the meeting.)

Was Apocalypse Now the laziest Brando's ever been? I know he refused to learn his lines and was filmed in shadow to hide how fat he'd become. I believe Island of Dr Moreau is a close contender.

Probably, but Coppola managed to make that perfomance iconic, while Dr Moreau was actively sabotaged by Brando's antics

Other M is one of the most genuinely sexist works I'm aware of because it's not in an unfortunate accidental implication sort of way, the actual intended moral is "Women have these things called 'emotions' and that's why they need to be held back sometimes rly makes u think". It's made even more insane by the woman being the protagonist .

The story was a lot better when it was all a big joke about a dude going on a revenge murder spree because his dog was killed.

Then it went entirely up its own rear end with nonsensical secret assassin fantasy world building and completely lost the plot. It’s just mediocre action porn that’s already been done better in other, better, movies, in some instances directly ripping them off I.e. The Villainess.

Villainess has the same problems with nonsense plot as JW3, but amplified, and doesnt have good actors to cruise that nonsense

Amazon is making a Lord of the Rings show although it is in a weird position where it is Middle Earth but not the time period of the books, instead it is set much earlier.

Judging how terrible people are with making prequels, every minute there will be a forced reference to the good trilogy just like in those awful Hobbit movies regardless of how they fit the time period, style, tone or plot

Just watch them have explicit copies of Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli because hey remember that one time high fantasy on big screen was decent???

Disney's CFO is now bemoaning the backlash to Mulan being filmed in Xinjiang.

I continue to wonder how these tentpole productions fail to do reputational due diligence. Before big-dollar transactions, major corporations hire intelligence firms to assess their reputational risks. It involves digging up info on relevant personnel as well as anticipating possible angles of PR backlash. It's considered good corporate governance.

If you pay the tens of thousands it costs to commission such a report, you'd catch red flags like filming near detention camps and hiring sexual predators.

Of course, it would equally flag things like an actor being a pro-Hong Kong activist. Risk management cuts both ways.

Disney is so loving rotten

I've said this before but doing a Bowie biopic is just incredibly ill-conceived no matter who it is unless you go real weird with it, like beyond the "I'm Not There" thing of having a bunch of different actors playing elements of Dylan's persona in vignettes that are varying degrees of fictional.

You'd have to go real out there, like having literally nobody play David Bowie and just have an empty space where the character is and everyone's acting like there's somebody there, or have the character be hand-animated and a vocaloid and everyone else be normal actors. The closest would be maybe having wildly different actors, none of whom look act or sound anything like Bowie, each one playing him in a different phase of his career, and also have constant revisions to the story where characters are directly addressing events that just occurred but making up different events than what we just watched.

We already have Velvet Goldmine anyway

This feels like DC trying to go after Marvel the same way Activision went after Harmonix: Oversaturate the market with Guitar Hero spin-offs that eventually overshadow and drown out Rock Band's occasional releases.

quote:

“Boiled down, it means that some characters (Wonder Woman as portrayed by Ms. Gadot, for instance) will continue their adventures on Earth 1, while new incarnations (Mr. Pattinson as ‘The Batman’) will populate Earth 2,” The Times continues.

Last 5 years or so in pop culture were truly horryfying for me as a guy who likes comics but loves movies because I constantly see THE WORST BULLSHIT of mainstream american comics that I was accustomed to in a niche medium for dorks seeping into movies seen by millions. Rabid fans of Marvel and DC waging war over dumbest poo poo, crossover events, idiotic discussions about "grimdark", character reboots and acquisitions as number 1 news.

And now, loving great, we will get accompanying chart to determine WHICH CONTINUITY a given film is taking place in.
Whats next? This crap replacing movie posters when the few remaining cinemas open?:
