You mean, award-winning. And didn't you make fun of people judging the quality of the movie before watching it?

Huh? It is an awards bait movie, we know he took "inspiration" from other movies. I don't need to have seen the movie to know this to be true.

John Wick is white though. And I'm sure you were convinced you weren't going to like this movie before those comments. It's just that what he said now gives you a reason to voice your bias.

Lol I have already made it clear that I think Todd Phillips is a mediocre filmmaker who has nothing interesting to say with this movie. His recent comments only further confirm that. That is basically what I said in my post. 

 

Also, did I miss the part in the John Wick movies where it's confirmed that he has two white parents?

This thread has reached a new low we previously didn't even know was possible.

Didn't know you hated discussion about Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, only in select theaters November 1 and Netflix on November 27, that much

Speaking of answering the real questions, why don't you answer for the fact that you purposely misconstrued what victims of a shooting had said so that you could create a false narrative just because you're a fanboy. Why don't you answer for this? Do you have no ethics?

LMAO @Firepower accused the press of plotting literal terrorism and loosely paraphrasing what the Aurora victims said is a bridge too far?

Nah, I think your mind had already confirmed that you won't like the movie before those comments. I'm pretty sure that what he said in an interview didn't change much. You just have a point that isn't just "I hate this movie I haven't already seen". If you think Philips has nothing interesting to say then say that after watching the movie instead of based on some offhand comments he made. I guess Inarittu has nothing interesting to say because he called superhero movies the scum of the film industry.

 

Also did you miss the part where Wick's a Ruska Romani Belurusian? It's highly unlikely that he had any Asian heritage. And all this conversation and outrage about Philips calling Reeves a white man (which he didn't) really doesn't matter in the end and only a weird diversion from the argument Philips was making. 

 

And I don't get what's wrong with what Philips said. Is John Wick execused because it throws away all morality (John Wick IS not a good person) and replaces it with cool action sequences?

I guess you have problems with reading my posts. I said that press is spreading panic and mass histeria around the movie, most of them do that unintentionally with their "hot takes" and taking quotes out of context for clicks and traffic, maybe some of them are really psyhos, who knows, but I didn't say that about each and every outlet.

I believe the Rotten Tomatoes criteria states that non theatrical or limited release movies can be certified fresh with only 40 or so reviews. 

It does, although it's 80 for wide-releases and Joker has 127, so more than enough

Quote

Movies and TV shows are Certified Fresh with a steady Tomatometer of 75% or higher after a set amount of reviews (80 for wide-release movies, 40 for limited-release movies, 20 for TV shows), including 5 reviews from Top Critics.

Of course The Irishman has 100% at 41 reviews which means it has virtually no chance of going under the 75% threshold. Joker can still easily go under 75%.

 

Overall I can't say if Joker is getting an unfair treatment or not. Do they normally wait longer when the score is close to 75% or are they supposed to give it right away when it passes 80 reviews and maintains 75%? The issue here is once they grant it, they don't remove it even if it goes below 75%, but if they wait long enough for it to go below the threshold (which it might), they might not have to ever certify it.

Ya know, those who keep making things about white men, white men, WHITE MEN are the most divisive of all.

 

I'm sick and tired of reading people, in the media and otherwise, make everything about skin color and gender, especially when it comes to white men.

 

Fuck off and dont you dare claim the moral high ground, that you're somehow promoting unity. You're not. You're just against white men, which is literally no better or different. Simple as that.

 

/rant.

In the list of reasons deranged people carry out mass shootings, media fascination and overexposure is one of the top reasons, movies like the joker would be on the 4th page or some shit.

 

Basically, whatever the media is doing is having a heavy streisand effect.

What's with your and Ororo's overreliance on phrases such as lol and lmao? Starting with that doesn't take away from the OP nor does it validate your point. And I have no idea why you are deflecting my questions and aiming to change the subject. I never discussed Firepower, I am talking about you.

 

Answer my question first.

Even though I think Bill Maher has disappointingly become a fucking lunatic in a lot of ways(neoliberal apologist/concern troll and one of Russiagate's chief fear mongers and propagandists), his latest new rule segment is about white shame and its pretty great and hilarious.  Definitely a pro-click.

Good lord. Are you actually reading my posts? Did I say anything he said changed my opinion? Have I not always made it clear that I have no interest in this movie or confidence in Phillips' ability to tell an interesting story? My opinion has always been the same... that there is literally nothing I have seen or heard about this movie or Phillips or any movie he has done that makes me think that he has anything interesting or original or thought provoking to say. The fact that he has since made multiple ignorant comments is just more proof of that, not *the* proof I needed. Get it??

 

Yikes at you thinking that Ruska Roma is tantamount to white. The Romani people are originally from India and many of them even now would not be described as white. Hardly the proof you seem to think it is. 

 

Wick may not be a good person but I'd say it matters that 1) he didn't want to kill 2) he doesn't kill or go after random, innocent civilians 3) he's not positioned as mentally ill 4) the JW movies aren't aiming for social commentary or some larger message about our society. The latter continues to highlight the most hilarious defense for Joker, a movie that's praised for being more than a popcorn movie but its defenders can't help but try to compare it to such movies to expose some sort of hypocrisy. Oh, the irony...

Phillips has brought to our attention of the risks of stealing Mike Tyson's tiger when in Vegas. That's a lesson Samuel Johnson would have been proud of.

I'm just saying Phillips is playing high and mighty one second and then hiding from the press the next. When you make an Elliot Rodger/James Holmes/Sad White Man Mad At Society pic expect hard questions.

 

Helpful tips: you can't have an Oscar campaign and run from questions.

:universal facepalm:

Yeah, he runs away from questions, question to be precise, he already answered thousand times. Because those "moral" people ask the same stupid question not to fuel the controversy to make more headlines for clicks, but because they actually care, lol. Poor Todd, he's been hiding from the press for a month... by answering their questions and giving them interviews...

Or journalists should have a sense of humilty (crazy I know) and stop playing inquisitors with a  moral high ground privilege.

Remind me of something but not sure what, some people they used to fight for centuries ... eons ago ...

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

In the end, only power matters, not virtue.

In America, a country where there's a Sad White Boy Mass Killer every few weeks, and you make a Said White Boy Mass Killer movie, expect questions about that. Not rocket science.

The Irishman already certified fresh at 41 reviews, while fellow De Niro joint Joker still hasn't got it at 127 reviews. Sad!

meanwhile Marriage Story is still not certified after being 100% with 66 reviews. only Marty gets that special treatment :bagoverhead:
