In my house, there could not be a truer statement...although years ago, mine were Mewtwo and Eevee...they weren't gonna settle for the generic:)...

 

EDIT: And yes, Detective Pikachu is our May movie...

Then don’t act like one :)

I suggesting re-reading my comments, not once did I mention dressing up. Look at the part of the comment I boldened.

I love how you take our comments responding to your comment suggesting little girls should be dressing up as Alita and then try to act like that wasn’t your comment at all.

 

Good troll behavior 101.

I think you should be the one double checking what was said... not Jimbo.

Sad world we live in where a simple comment about how I am happy that young girls and women have another character that they can look up to on the big screen turns into whatever hell this thread just turned into. Not everything has to be some big debate nor does everything have to be black and white. Pretty sure we can all agree that Captain Marvel (and other female characters) being brought to the big screen is a great thing for everyone but especially young girls who are looking for representation of that sort on the big screen. 

 

That's literally what my original comment was about.

Yeah, im sorry i was a part of that. Sometimes a discussion can derail without much reasoning maybe the Mods should just delete some of the comments.

 

We definetly need the official Friday estimates.

Can Alita pull off a miraculous anti-gravity drop this weekend?

 

We made $7,221,417 last weekend, can we make over $5m this weekend against all odds?

Captain Marvel blowing up (as everyone reasonable thought it would) and the floppage of the MRAs/trolls in sabotaging it (as they fail at the sabotaging of anything) reminds me of this video (put it in spoilers cause of the thumbnail):

Captain Marvel being in the cinema is not a "good thing for everyone". 

Not for people who don't like marvel films...

 

Imagine if the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on Captain Marvel had instead been used to put his dark materials on screen..

Way better female led story and no stupid superheroes :)

In the 21st century we have huge movies being made like Hunger Games, Wondy, Alita, Cap Marv... All of which have female front and center. Not enough of them but it's a good start. More will come. Oh, yeah, new Star Wars too and Rogue One.

Re-read it, here’s part of the comment you replied the Alita picture with while saying “I know a better role model”

 

”I'm just happy that young girls have another bad ass character that they can dress up as, buy toys for and say "I'mgonna be Captain Marvel," when they fake fight with their friends.”

 

Whether you bolded it or not your reply came off as saying, “This is actually the character little girls should look up to, dress up as, go see in theaters.”

 

Stop playing dumb as if you weren’t trying to be provocative when the thread rules literally ask you not to make the CM v Alita comparison.

Since we're talking about female superheroes, here's a fun fact I just realized:

5/6 of next year's funnybook movies will be written and/or directed by women.

The sole exception? The one with Jared Leto.

There is probably a debate to be had to wether superheroes are even good role models for kids in the first place. They are afterall very violent.

Alita: Battle Angel is hands down one of the best action blockbusters in years, and it’s said to see it as a tool for the MRA as a scapegoat to use against Captain Marvel.

 

That said, it’s nice that young girls have more strong heroines now to in someways look up to like Alita, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel.

Probably more like 3.5 or 4.0 with that .9 Friday.
