I'm a photographer who picked up a video camera to embrace multimedia.
Really hoping I live near one of those select theaters. A back-to-back screening of this and Star Wars would make this holiday special.
Nothing good comes out of this administration.
Casting a white person as Harriet Tubman isn't equal opportunity, it's business as usual. I agree that black people shouldn't only play black roles--we need a black James Bond, a black Hermonie, a black Ariel–it's fiction and when we're creating new fictional stories we have to be inclusive. But a white woman playing a black, and especially oppressed, historical woman? That's wrong, and it just affirms white supremacy. It doesn't help us advance from our very racist past (and arguably still racist present).
Alan Moore is spot on. It’s certainly the current marketplace but it isn’t creative. Marvel’s just fan servicing at this point. The audience gets what it wants, but is it being exposed to the creator’s vision? I don’t know, doesn’t feel like it. I have no idea what it’s like to work on a set, but I feel like working on a Marvel moving would be so boring—they’re cookie-cutter productions. At least A24 and Blumhouse produce some original, weird stuff.
The ending of GoT left a bad taste in my mouth. I don't think I could trust them to see things through on their Star Wars venture after that final season anyway—it was a huge F you to the fans. Now it looks like it was all for nothing.
