Fox's $100 million gamble to turn the classic news show "Fox and Friends" into a Trumpian knob-slobbering clusterfark filled with loony talking points on butheremails and naziism may be backfiring badly

Anytime I want to be "Infromed", I turn to Faux News.

A Wrinkle in Time already had this shiat, foxmitter.

Can't it just be a mediocre kids movie based on a mediocre kids book?
 
2018-03-08 11:52:45 AM  
I'm sure that if Faux News had liked the film they would've wildly sung its praises.

So....they've never read the books.

Not surprised.

I don't care about the movie, but the fact that a faux article about the movie somehow turned the comments into a race war between Oprah, and Phil Donahue was glorious.

"If Operah made it on her own without the world of white sympathizers standing behind her, where would she have been 30 years when competing against Phil Donahue? They threw Phil under the bus to usher in a new age of race war"

Gloriously stupid.

Yep it's pretty much a religious allegory where love wins. Charles Wallace reads parts of the Bible as a bedtime story.

Wait, Fox news hates a story that is essentially anti-conformist to the universal totalitarian order?

The sh*ts an giggles, you say.

Fox and Friends -- the only one you'd want to have anything to do with is the blond in the middle and then only if she's sporting a ball gag.
 
2018-03-08 12:17:35 PM  
Also - the movie doesn't have any diversity "talking points", it just presents a multi-racial family, as is.  No explanations, no "we are diverse" speeches, they are just a loving family.  I don't think race is actually mentioned at all in the movie.

Count on the people who gave us the "Half Hour Comedy Hour" to have their finger firmly on the pulse of what the nation wants.

Yeah but to Fox News viewers, that's already far, far too much.
 
2018-03-08 12:26:58 PM  
I had real problems with the way the movie was directed - but really had no problems with the "message", since it was the message in the books.

The final scene could be the family watching (and enjoying) Trump's acceptance speech.

My daughter wants to see this movie.  I'm pretty sure 8 y.o. girls like her are the intended demographic, not hate filled sacks of shiat like Fox and Friends.

The really funny thing is that Ben Garrison can do the same kinds of comics and it's not satire.

The religion in question being Universalism (as in "Hell either isn't real or is temporary,") which is not cool with the Christian mainstream.

Low energy, Sade.

The movie may suck, but feminism and diversity should never be considered liberal talking points.
They should be facts of life and it is disgusting that Fox and the farked-up Right are opposed to them.
 
2018-03-08 12:48:16 PM  
I remember reading the book and it never really caught my imagination, but a lot of people I know are pretty excited about the movie. So I doubt it will do too badly.
 
2018-03-08 12:48:34 PM  
Remember, these are the same people who think Mr. Rogers was terrible.

It's just like the time Hollyweird tried to ruin Lord of the Rings by shoving in that treehugger bs of trees attacking loggers.

The RT reviews are interesting.  No one is giving it an A, but there's no F's either.  Going to see it tonight, setting expectations to moderately low.

The inoffensive medium is where Disney tends to aim these days. Not doing anything that's going to catch them real flack (this article not withstanding) but not really taking enough risks to make something special.

We saw this before, and it bombed.    The notion of protecting the earth is fine, but guess what?  Kids don't like to be propaganda'd to any more than adults.     To try and shoe-horn this type of story into a kid's film.... its a tough sell, and i think its manipulative.

I had high hopes for Disney and Tim Burton to make a faithful adaptation of Miss Peregrine's. They did everything they could to blandify it. They traded out the girl's fire powers for a minor character's floatiness, removed the Nazis, neutered the monsters, and completely trashed the ending.

I remember really liking the books (and my mom brought up how I would read them all the time when the trailer showed up), but other than tiny bits and pieces I can't remember anything about it.

I remember more about Bridge to Terabithia, but that's probably more cause I read that in an afterschool bookclub sorta thing (honestly I can't really remember what I was reading it for, it wasn't a school required book) with a super hot teacher, and was a bit older at the time.

I have to say though, the marketing has been very much "yay, rainbow nation". And I'm cool with all kinds of stories, races, sexes, gays whatever. What I can't stand is "look at how farking woke we are" when pushing a film. Like, female protagonists in Star Wars? Fine. "people only hated Star Wars because of all the women" can DIAF.

I stand corrected. I scanned the headline, and made an assumption.   I do think its more appropriate for a kid to contemplate 'diversity' and 'equality' than to contemplate his place in the environment, so i'll have an open mind about the film.
 
2018-03-08 01:07:03 PM  
 Its just a crummy movie, not the end of the world. The trailers looked bad, Oprah especially looked silly.  The recent push smacked of desperation.

What's inappropriate about a kid contemplating their part in the environment?
