I don't want to sound like a cynical cunt because it's a female led superhero film but it's fucking nailed on that this film will almost be beyond criticism and will get ridiculous praise just because the lead has a fanny.

Same with that Black Panther thing. That film got nominated for best picture because of all the racial shit behind it.

Haven't seen it yet but it sounds to me like it will go the way of Female Ghostbusters and Oceans 8

Like Strike said some years back most male fans are not opposed to Female leads in Sci fi or Horror Films (Ripley in Aliens the chicks in Resident Evil and Underworld etc etc)

but when it comes to just men bashing and role reversal for the sake of being "progressive and woke" and not for serving the story these films misfire every.damn.time.

Unless Captain Marvel is an LGBTQIA transgender Muslim Southern Asian or African amputee with a speech impediment, I don't think it's going to do very well at the Oscars.
Now THAT is a movie that has to happen. Just add "Downs" into the mix, and it's a hit.

Fuck that shit...:

The following clip is labeled as "UNCUT," but I believe there may be an element of false advertising in that claim.

I can't believe you just used the word "Downs". Don't you know that's like the N word for mentally disabled people now? Shame Shame Shame on you! :nono




Words Can Hurt
Everyone knows words can hurt. For people with Down syndrome and their families, the history of “labels” is not a pleasant one. People with Down syndrome used to be labeled “idiots, morons,” and “imbeciles” by both society and the medical profession. The label evolved into “Downs, mongoloid, handicapped, mentally retarded, retarded,” and then for short, “retard.”

Today, these labels are considered politically incorrect, hurtful and dehumanizing. As award-winning actor, parent-advocate, and Global Down Syndrome Foundation International Spokesperson, John C. McGinley has said, there is no difference between derogatory words used to label ethnic or religious minorities and the words used to label people with Down syndrome. As with people advocating for ethnic or religious minorities, there is a movement (led by Special Olympics) to end the use of derogatory words such as the “R” word – ‘retard.’
