      I know...hence why John Cena is apologizing to China because he dared called Taiwan a country or some such nonsense. Also Di$ney/Marvel is getting cancelled there a bit as well for something lame...and Gal Gadot is in hot water because of comments about Israel/Palestine. (as is Mark Ruffalo)

      It was bad enough when Hollywood was just pandering to our lowest common denominator...now they pander to everyone who has a computer and goes on social media. Gotta make sure China isn't mad because 1.5 billion people is a lot of revenue!

        Aren't there only like six different plots anyway?

        Rags to riches
        Riches to rags
        Fall/Rise
        Rise/Fall
        Fall/Rise/Fall
        Rise/Fall/Rise
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

          Fall/Rise/Fall
          Rise/Fall/Rise
          Even fewer:

          Shunned outsider becomes super powerful (mawkish good version)
          Shunned outsider becomes super powerful (fun evil version)
          Powerful person becomes even more super powerful But Loses Everything
          Supernatural being longs to be mortal
          Supernatural being loses powers and wants them back

          Note: also works with Greek myths, which are all comics ever were anyway because humans have been the same since they crawled from the primordial ooze.

            • Hey now, every so often there is the films where literally nothing happens...no rises, no falls, the characters are just there staring at nothing and saying stuff that is supposed to sound profound and deep but really isn't. You know, the crap film students make/love but no one else does unless they want to sound cultured :^D

                I love those films!!!

                The best way to evaluate art films for those who think they are a waste of time: if you think they are, then, for you, they are. Nobody's making you watch them.

                "Ow My Balls!" is showing in 97% of theatres, television, and streams. Go see that. That way we are both happy.

                    I actually just watched the four Jean Rollin vampire movies and found them... not great. They are lionized as a high point of 60s French art cinema.

                    I just liked the boobs.

                    • I mean, at their best, aren't all vampire movies mostly about the boobs? Except maybe Interview With the Vampire which is about how all male Vampire's are homosexual?

Not sure why I called it a novella...I knew it was a full novel I was gonna buy it for the GF but she didn't even know it existed. This stinks of the studio convincing Collins to write another story so they can make a film for it. I can't speak to quality cause I never read any of those books ;^)

                        I thought FB was a book but I guess it was probably just stuff mentioned in the other books or something cause she has answers when I ask her questions after she drags me to the films. (only FB films...I have seen maybe 3 hours of the main Potter films total including the ending) Honestly I tune the GF out when she talks Potter much like she tunes me out when I discuss my weird nerdy stuff. We both tune out our friends that gush over Marvel Films/TV ;^)
                        The Songbirds book focuses on the young life of the Big Bad from the first set of books. It suffers from a complete lack of suspense that plagues almost all prequels.

                        The Fantastic Beasts movies are based upon the character who wrote one of the textbooks used by the kids in Harry Potter’s era, and wraps itself in the events mentioned about Dumbledore’s younger days. There is a published book of FB, but it’s written as a textbook, from the couple pages I read at Barnes & Noble. While we know the outcome of the Dumbledore events, there’s no knowing if the Newt Scamander lead will finish the series missing an arm or something when he wins the final battle.
