He's not a character, he's a Hot Topic given human form.

Nah, he's definitely a character.

Absolutely... just as soon as the blase dismissal of blacks as a whole through systemic discrimination in the entertainment industry, police murder and brutality, and bias in the employment and judicial systems goes away.

I only make blasé dismissal of films that actually look bad, like PIXELS. I think that's a better approach than "I don't care about white/black movies".

John Legend is in La La Land.

And is whitesplained the importance of jazz by Ryan Gosling.

See, a joke got wrongly taken as a dismissal.  I still plan on seeing it, just poking fun at what is a fairly ubiquitous (and frankly, beyond tiring) phenomenon.  Whites are tired of hearing it?  Blacks are tired of living it.  Those are two totally different realities.

Gawd, if only Jordan got the role, all you motherfuckers would calm the fuck down and enjoy this wonderful movie.

no free will

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to invent a device that will transport me to an alternate reality where Jordan is the star and Bernie Samders is president... then set the machine to self destruct after I leave so none of you fuddy duddies infest my universe!

Fair enough. Hope you enjoy it!

Twenty seconds in, he said he saw Jupiter Ascending and couldn't wait to see it again. Then I spent the next minute figuring out what the fuck "Juh-Jabrums" is.

 

I bet this guy says shit like "BRB" and "LOL" in real life.

I went digging through his back catalogue of videos, and ran across one on the DANGERS OF SATIRE regarding Homer Simpson possibly becoming a role model for others. I proceeded to light my YouTube history on fire.

...What? Legend lectures Gosling about how Gosling's vision of jazz is holding jazz back. And he's not represented as being wrong, even though Gosling doesn't like his music.

 

ANYWAYS BACK TO STAR WARS.

post #2215 of 2946

It never really occurred to me that a movie having the majority population group of the United States in it makes it worthy of mockery.

I kinda do, but I'm too lazy and don't even care about whatever movie it was that spawned the discussion in the first place.

Also I'm kind of tired of pretty white people too. When are we going to get Normal And/Or Ugly White People, The Movie? Last one I can think of was Napoleon Dynamite.

I hope it turns out all the black people in Star Wars come from the same planet. Like how all the black people on Krpton lived on one continent.

Yeah, they're all children of Lando.  Even Mace.

post #2224 of 2946

So if Rey was in the pilot's seat and Chewie was the co-pilot, Finn would sit in the back of the Millennium Falcon, right?

Better than The Hobbit and Cyborg.

The superhero, not the movie.

The back?  He'd be in the kitchen.

Finn's a woman too? Star Wars really is diverse these days!

Stupid, stupid show.

Just the worst.
post #2230 of 2946

The thing I hated most about TFA was how Finn was little more than a red herring (in the marketing and movie) for Rey's eventual reveal with the lightsaber.  

post #2231 of 2946
You really thought Disney would make a black guy the hero of Star Wars and not some British white chick?

Bart's not wrong here.

SUPERMAN IV is the only worthwhile Golan/Globus product, aside from this brief clip: https://youtu.be/ka8r05nQ-mU

If one was going by the marketing and not spoiler sites, it was easy to come to that conclusion...really, they seemed like equal co-leads, with both probably becoming jedi buddies.  But I wasn't surprised when that turned to not be the case.

No.

Van Damme is crucified in Cyborg.

It's perhaps the apex of cinema.
post #2237 of 2946
Van Damme is a lame Schwarzenegger wannabe.

Anyways, here's this new quote from Rian Johnson:

 

Writer/director Rian Johnson is picking up right where they left off in the beginning of the Star Wars saga’s still-untitled next chapter. “I don’t want to skip ahead two years,” Johnson says. “I want to see the very next moment of what happens.” How Rey and Luke relate to each other is the key relationship in Episode VIII, and Johnson says “a large part of the movie” will be spent addressing why Luke’s there and what he’ll do next. Like Luke, Rey has been pulled into a bigger world by connecting with the Force, “but part of what’s she’s dealing with is the realization that she has this power and this gift,” Johnson adds. “She’s taking her first step to coming to terms with this thing inside her that she never knew was there and is just starting to reveal its potential.”

Just starting to reveal?  Didn't she embarrass a well trained dark side user on the first go?

I think that was his point.

I don't know what else to tell you bff. Exactly which part of the notion of "MAXIMIZING profits" is getting by you here?

Then I guess by Ep. 9 she'll be bringing down Star Destroyers with her powers.

Hey, given some of the pre-production artwork for TFA, this is less unlikely than you think!

Good, now we have the gay black angle covered in one stroke.  It's like poetry.
