Not a repeat from 1996.

I decided to see Black Christmas. It was late and no other movies were playing and figured a christmas horror movie couldnt be that bad. But wow. What a horrible movie. It was just sooooo bad on so many levels. About halfway through I was trying to figure out how tf someone ever gave the ok for that movie. Just... what a steaming pile of shiat.

Still doesnt explain this movie.

The boogeyman was LITERALLY the patriarchy going around killing strong women that wouldn't kneel.

And it only got dumber from there.

Because history shows that teens/college kids will pretty much watch any horror film regardless of quality.  It won't buy a yacht for the studio executives, but it will pay to keep the lights on a the studio office.  And more importantly, keep the theaters open by giving them something to show when you aren't loading them down with blockbusters (or even just to show on the smaller screens in a theater).

Yeah, I am kind of wondering now if the movie was actaully bad or someone is upset about the message of the movie.

Murder is probably an exaggeration, but if you spend any time on a college campus with a Greek system, you know most of the feats are just developing incels, even if their money saves them from celibacy the way it shields them from all other consequences, who spend a good amount of time demeaning women and bullying and saying awful things to and about women who do not fit into their limited vision of the world.

Mostly they limited their murdering to accidentally poisoning young girls while trying to get them intoxicated for sexual assault reasons, but still, it would not be a bad analogy if done right.

That's the first time I've heard Kevin Hart being referred to as America's sweetheart.

Also, considering that Eastwood still get blank checks to produce and direct any film he wants, the word "shunned" is basically a lie. He hasn't suffered any consequences for his views.

Hart didn't lose the Oscars.
He made a stand by walking away from the hosting gig.
His homophobic fans rallied around him.
Ellen Degeneres helped turn him into the victim.
Now he's a spokesman for  J.P. Morgan Chase.

The timing for Richard Jewel is all wrong.  December is the time for loud, splashy, big budget, popcorn movies.  Serious shiat is for January/February when we're all miserable anyway because we're all on diets.

The competition this time of year is fierce: Frozen 2, Ford v Ferrari, Jumanji, Knives Out. Hell, even if I really wanted to see a documentary now, I'd much rather go see the Mr. Rogers one.

What better place to discuss the influence of those Hollywood chooses to peddle to its consumers and the effect those choices have on the American mindset.than the Entertainment tab?
Shouldn't everyone be concerned about homophobic jokes made by anybody or do some types of bigotry get a free pass if that particular anybody is assumed to have the correct political affiliation?

Persnickety: The timing for Richard Jewel is all wrong.  December is the time for loud, splashy, big budget, popcorn movies.  Serious shiat is for January/February when we're all miserable anyway because we're all on diets.

The competition this time of year is fierce: Frozen 2, Ford v Ferrari, Jumanji, Knives Out. Hell, even if I really wanted to see a documentary now, I'd much rather go see the Mr. Rogers one.


December is the final push for awards bait movies. A movie has to play in theaters by Christmas Day to qualify for the Academy Awards.

January is the dumping ground where studios put out the lesser quality stuff they know won't attract a big audience or any award nominations, but are contractually obligated to put in theaters.
