It's crazy to me how 5 years ago a masterpiece like Infinity War came out and how far the MCU has fallen since 2018
All these wokity woke crap movies have all flopped or underperformed

  • Wakanda forever 2 FLOPPED
  • Antman 3 Quantumania FLOPPED
  • Eternals and Shang-Chi FLOPPED
  • The New Blade Movie actor Mahershala Ali threatened to walk out because they wanted to turn him into a fudge packer plus it's been plagued by a bad script and bad story and the director walked out weeks before shooting was set to begin

There are multiple reasons why they are flopping including, superhero fatigue, Identity politics, and bad storytelling personally I think "The Boys" right now on Amazon got the juice, yes they got some of the wokity woke crap too but they also show the hypocrisy behind it and the storytelling is far superior to anything Marvel or DC has put out in years

It's like MCU is trying to kill their brand with this identity politics crap when your audience is mostly men who don't wanna see a bunch of women belittling men on screen and spewing feminist garbage

I don't see MCU being relevant within 5 years or Disney if they keep up with this crap, they are losing tons of money heck Disney can't even get Snow White right in 2023!

Never thought I'd see it in my lifetime but Hollywood is on life support right now, especially Disney and Marvel

I hate the garbage woke direction they been taking. Im glad recent movies are flopping, It was about time people started voting with their wallets. My current gf describes herself as a Disney fan and she hates it too.

I go to the movies to be entertained. Sometimes its all good but sometimes you get a lecture from the movie wtf; I didnt came to the movies to get a lecture. We are paying to be entertained, not to get a f0cking lecture.

George Lucas never should have sold his franchise I understand he had to cause of his divorce but Disney singlehandedly ruined his franchise with the feminism and wokity woke crap(which bad storytelling is also a major factor inluded). Hollywood is destroying themselves trying to push the agenda, these elites are too dense to realize that people aren't going for that crap

In the near future, I see a rise in foreign and also independent movies becoming more popular(which is already starting to happen), Hollywood keeps rehashing the same movies from the 70s&80s and now trying to infuse it with Indenitiy policies and wokity woke agenda

Go woke go broke as they say and Hollywood is going broke!

I didn't mind THOR but overall I think most of the Marvel movies are garbage. Blade and Spiderman (Toby) are the exceptions.
The infaggity gotlit started out woke. Couldn't watch the movie after the first 10 minutes, I wanted to puke, guy whining about his husband. My wife stood up and announced to a stunned audience "You're gay if you stay and watch this," at the premiere of Mad Max Fury Road where Furiosa uses Max as a stool. My friends we were sitting with went flush red with embarrassment. I could not have been more proud that day. That was also the day we stopped going to the theater for movies. I felt like Willow with Mad Mardigan.


Which btw is a series that could have easily been amazing but instead was turned into pure sh1t from DIE Versity. Angry Gay and Lesbian characters do NOT belong in our movies. Harry Potter... book series that had gained international acceptance and notoriety that I used to teach my classes... all that good will was destroyed in ONE day with two words: "He's Gay".



They can't bring back the magic even with 100's of millions of dollars. Feminism, destroyer of worlds. Did what even Thanos could not do.

Movies that were supposed to be good but end up sucking because of feminism:

Valerian (a married couple) with a comic book series... lots to choose from instead they chose to make it about the first nations/africa being colonized. Sprinkled in some gurl power and suddenly it becomes a wokefest and disappears from theaters.

Wokebusters: Afterlife
Take a basic concept with a child star from Stranger Things. Over a DOZEN mini cartoon series with 100's of episodes to draw from. An absolutely fantastic XBOX game. Nope. Single Mom? Check. Hates her father? Check. Sprinkle in some faggy dust and suddenly Egon's grandchild is a FEMALE? he's never met. A non-Binary prodigy. Grandpa is a loser, the original Ghostbusters somehow faded into obscurity. Ecto One had all this cool tech that a CHILD somehow figured out. Scientists build a nuclear accelerator but a 'girl' genius is able to assemble it with a little help from a ghost? This could've been awesome but instead, it was more woke garbage with a thin story and a major IP stapled on.

I dunno why anyone is suprised about Blade being gay, BLADE TRINITY was literally a feminist film with a FEMALE co-star. The hot 'female' ninja trope. It sucks sh1t, it's been done to death, and you'll notice since XMEN, men are not allowed to be shown choking out women anymore.


There was so much backlash to this scene that they made it so NO man was ever seen hurting a woman in a movie again. Now there is always a woman to fight a woman.

This movie was made in 1983 about the WEF :) It is a cheap rip off of Mad Max and is 100 times better than fury road.


I see all these movie reviews on YouTube blasting old movies, calling them cheesy garbage. These people don't know wtf they're talking about. Nowhere in these movies do you see woke nonsense. Infact Warriors of the Lost World is notable because there is a scene where he literally knocks out a woman warrior who thinks she's a tough b1tch. It's awesome. You don't need original stories to make fun movies, you just need to be realistic. I cut it at the scene btw. :)


Nowhere in The Last Starfighter is there ANY woke bvll****. Single mom? Check. She's poor living in a trailer park? Check. Alex doesn't get accepted to college? Check. His girlfriend is feminine and doesn't want to leave? Check. His brother Lewis like lookin at porno mags? LOL check. A mentor alien that acts like a father figure? Check. Oh but it's a 'Star Wars ripoff' to most reviewers... they don't understand what they're looking at.


Here's a movie with a LACK of female ninjas. Not ONE. The movie is so much fun, the girls are feminine, the guys are unmistakeably masculine. This movie makes Chinese people look like bad ass mfer's and Chinese culture look mysterious and interesting. Jake Burton is funny but not stupid. Nowhere in the movie does it depict his smaller counterpart as weak and feeble. Nowhere does it depict Jack Burton as a dumb white man who has to defer to the white woman. This movie made me legitimately believe as a kid that all Chinese people knew Karate.

I stopped watching MCU just because the characters I liked (the original avengers cast) are no longer the focal point. It has nothing to do with “wokeness” or politics.

Space Hunter: White bounty hunter, meets up with Black Nemesis, and they join forces. He meets Molly Ringwald (who is an idiot) who as in real life is a terrified woman completely incapable of taking care of herself (who REY PALPATINE SHOULD HAVE BEEN)... this is realistic. He's on a mission to rescue 3 (female space tourists) from a guy that's going to clearly rape the sh1t out of them. Better than fury road. Since when are blacks and whites enemies? Since, big gay. They need us to hate each other so they can take center stage or else they just look like clowns.


I don't mind tough females when they are portrayed right, as in Vasquez case, she is TOTALLY believable as a badass Colonial Marine.


None of the marines (even Hudson) are portrayed as goofy, stupid, or incapable of dealing with the situation. I would be comfortable following their command and Ripley's. The interactions FEEL real, the women feel like they are supposed to be there but they don't feel the need to sh1t all over their colleagues or belittle them. You get the feeling that Vasquez and Drake really like and respect each other and that Vasquez is as comfortable with that Smart Gun as anyone. This is an iconic weapon in ALIENS, much like Captain America's Shield. Although, you feel like these marines have been well trained and battle hardened. They rip on each other but in the end they FEEL like a family. The MCU feels like a bunch of IPs hastily glued together for fan service. In Aliens the threat is real, and you FEEL like the characters earn the movie ending, it's not simply handed to them because we're at the 2 hour mark. This is movie magic done right. Aliens is so good, its the only movie I absolutely love where I would NEVER want to be a part of that universe because the threat is legitimate and would be a terrible way to go.



The 80's was the last age where men could be portrayed as men. Woman heroes acted like the supporting characters they're supposed to be. Heroism and good will were center stage. Star Wars was great but to say all these movies are rip offs is total bs. If something is good, you borrow elements of it and make your own product better. Why does this movie feel so good? The villain is an ACTUAL THREAT. He is someone that the Hero fears. A threat is only a threat if it scares you. Did you ever feel that a single enemy in any MCU film was a threat? I didn't, they were all just cannon fodder for the heroes to show off their signature moves. Skeletor could kick all of their asses with his testosterone alone.

The MCU is a clown show for clowns.

It has everything to do with wokeness and politics. If you can't see it, you're in deep.


You can't show civilian firearms anymore. All republicans and conservatives are now 'fascists'.


You never see movies where the girls are just kind of there in the background or are nerdy characters in love with masculinity.

As far as I'm concerned Hollywood has been broken even before all the stupid woke BS.
CGI & comic book subject matter like Marvel reduced most mainstream films to nothing more than visual oversaturation and stories that mainly appeal to children, teens, or people with a similar mentality.

Outside of the humor of the Guardians of the Galaxy & Deadpool films, most of that other crap wasn't even mildly entertaining to me. Avengers, Spiderman, Thor, all were too childish for me, but I have to admit I was never a comic book kid in the first place and grew up in the streets.

BoomToTheMoonAlice also touches on another fact that a lot of the best sci-fi movies were created in the 80's (Alien, Blade Runner, Predator, John Carpenters The Thing, Dune, Terminator, Robocop, Back to the Future, the Fly, Star wars series) *WELL BEFORE THE ADVENT OF CGI* and since then all we have are redone versions of those and numerous volumes of the same old comic book crap.

I'd already lost interest in most of what Hollywood puts out and the woke crap just made it unwatchable.

That said, it's a business, and there is a market for it that is expanding, so don't expect any kind of reversal on what/who these producers want represented in their films.

I have some bad news for you. I watched a vid on ALIEN last night... they've been pushing this sh1t forever. Does this make it unwatchable for me... ugh... again, now I can't unsee this bvllsh1t. Apparently, Lambert's original death scene had him being physically raped by the alien who then determined he wasn't a girl and thus pull his head off. Then they had the black dude shoot him with a flamethrower or something but in the end they decided to leave the rape scene out. You literally see the alien walk up to Lambert with his tail out like a d1ck. And now... that whole franchise is ruined for me. It makes sense then that this whole series was supposed to be some gay fantasy and why Prometheus/Covenant holds significant gay vibes. Editors cleverly left all these scenes on the cutting room floor and blurred this out in Aliens 2 as most people would have dropped this day 1. If you've ever spent any amount of time in the gay community (which I imagine most haven't) you'll note that they have a penchant for peculiar hobbies... almost disgusting stuff. One guy I knew in Mexico told me that he wrote fictional stories about a man who goes around collecting pubes off of toilet seats. His stories describe it in great detail. If that doesn't induce vomit, then the guy I worked for in Mexico City who took care of my visa bought and sold erotic paintings and phallus-shaped art, he was also packing fudge. I don't know why they liked me, I openly stated that I didn't like gays to them. After my friend told me about the pube collector (over dinner), I looked down at my plate of spaghetti and he had this smile and said "Still hungry?". He was teaching ESL over there and the only guy to help me. He was an American... and he was also a bad dude, I think he bludgeoned a guy to death with a wrench in CDMX but that's a story for a different time. Back to Alien, you'll note that in Covenant, the 'clearly' gay android slices and dices the original CHRISTIAN protagonist (You'll note the movie made a point to show her praying) and turns her insides out to gain access to her eggs. The story of David is essentially a gay fantasy about them being envious of women. I never fully trusted my friend and now I know why I get the same feeling from these movies. The monsters are all women. Yikes, what a mind****. No wonder the Aliens series has so much vaguely sexual innuendo going on. It's essentially a movie series about women raping men. (Ripley was initially written as a man). [There were no women aboard the Nostromo]

After having read all that, now I question. Is this the future of our species, that the WEF wants so bad. Arcturian poontang ?

Gay men tend to enjoy talking about ****. In our gyms and barbershops and health food stores, we gab about penises. It’s like talking about the weather. We scroll through **** pics on our smartphones. **** innuendos linger at the end of every double entendre and witty comeback. But when we hear “vagina,” the word is nearly always the butt of a joke — one made at the expense of women.

Before I thought this was just a funny line to show guys busting each other chops and denoting camaraderie... now I'm asking myself:

WTF did I just watch?

Not just men even, most people in general don't want to see movies made bad in the name of identity politics. Most people in general don't actually give a fvck about identity politics at the end of the day, They just want entertainment.

I just cannot understand how these capitalist behemoths found it to be a good idea to use their main products to cater to what is a relatively small (but vocal) subculture, at the expense of reaching as widely as possible to maximize profits. Someone needs to get fired.

Yes, foreign films and television are on the rise. The pandemic sparked a rise, such as the popularity of Squid Game, although the pandemic also sparked a rise in learning a foreign language, which would contribute to a rise of watching foreign movies. I think there could be the effect that more language learners could spark a rise by non-language learners by telling friends and family about awesome foreign television shows.

Part of the reason this is happening is because these movies are made by committee and made against a checklist of diversity and inclusion. Instead of coming up with a plan, they'll film multiple different takes and then stitch them together into whatever gets the best reaction from screeners. Although the reality is that then end up the go with what gets the least bad reaction from the screeners.

Not only are the movies bad and not making any money, the committee approach means that the production costs are double or even triple what they should be. One episode of She-Hulk cost as much to make as the entirety of John Wick 1.

This is what happens when you let a bunch of marxists losers work on your IPs.
