    If that saying is true, does that mean froot and CGVT are intellectuals? Nah.

    No sympathy for streaming collapse. What could have been a value add in the arena of competition, rapidly became a gouging opportunity. It may still become the death of cable and direct tv....you pay only for the channels you want.

It turns out people don't want (or can't afford) a separate streaming service for every single studio & network they previously had bundled together. And all these separate streamers basically hacked to death the one service (NetFlix) that everyone used to love.
    Nope. It's because the movies are "woke"

    I pointed out on the other thread that the #2, #3, and #4 highest grossing movies of the year all had arguably "woke" content. #2 and #3 explictly had gay characters in them. # 4 was a bit more subtle but Catwoman has been pretty openly bisexual in just about every fucking incarnation of her going back decades.

    One difference I'd point out is that none of these films made a big deal about this content beforehand. There was backlash against "Lightyear" before anyone had even seen it because Disney decided to tease ahead of time that the movie contained "Disney's first gay kiss!!!!" or something.

    'Batgirl' was nearly finished and building awareness among fans. Why would Warner Bros. Discovery throw it all away? Taxes.

    I dunno, the same studio pulled an animated Scooby Doo movie too for mysterious reasons. That movie was supposedly 95% done.

    Scoob!: Holiday Haunt Writer Paul Dini Says Cancellation Makes No Sense (collider.com)

    But maybe in the first five minutes Scooby states his pronouns or some shit and the test audience rioted and nearly burned down Regal Cinemas.

    Also, back to something Hannibal posted on Batgirl. Someone actually thought it was pulled because for a "tax write-off". LOL. If the movie was any good, it would have been released. What is obvious (and reported) is that the screen testing was unspeakably bad. It is a total disaster of a movie. Now, I haven't a clue if that's because it's "woke" or just plain old garden variety trash. But, what's clear is that Warner Bros view the marginal tax write off as being more valuable than the actual film and decided to eat the $90M loss. If it were even a credible picture it could have made most of that back and probably generated a small profit.

    So, you know, I haven't a clue why it's awful, but all of the evidenve says that it is, in fact, awful.

    He lent you enough money to turn a sleazy biker dive into a titty bar where the average Nebraskan would be PROUD to treat his mom to a sunday beer.

    That "Aviator" is so clueless that he could fly into Mount Rainier without even knowing it.
