Can't stand Lin-Manuel Miranda


So, I won't be going. I can barely stand Emily Blunt.

FWIW I don't think Hamilton is good, and Moana is kind of terrible too. Anything Lin-Manuel Miranda touches gets an ENORMOUS amount of publicity (his pr machine is huge, obviously) but I can't stand him.

im sure theres plenty who feel the same and will stay away from this movie due to him being in it

reply

The media loves his left-wing politics and Trump-bashing for sure.

reply

None of either in this, esp.the latter being much earlier set, in the thirties.

Hamilton tickets are exorbitently overpriced. What is so great about it that justifies spending a $1000 per seat?

reply

its just a ploy to make it seem more popular/get publicity

Unsurprising post given who wrote it.

Luckily, it’s mostly a certain vocal (but not-so-big) crowd on the internet that shares your opinion regarding this exceptionally talented and, by all accounts, awesome person. But judging by your other posts I’ve seen it’s reasonable to think the pathetic incel crowd would be the ones who would agree with you on most things.

Anyway, Lin-Manuel is clearly on a roll. And why in the world is that you may ask? I’m thinking the reason is, he possibly is just that good? Ergo, both critics and audiences respond well to his work. You dislike Hamilton (seriously doubt you’ve seen it and would ever care to if given the opportunity) and find Moana terrible? Ok. You know full well the vast majority most definitely disagrees with you, though. It is that simple. You cannot tolerate this actor, but many others do and it’s for all the right reasons. Unlike some, he didn’t get to where he is for no good reason. He is a creative and talented individual, period.

But all you read is blah blah, right? I have good reason to believe that you never considered going to see this film or any upcoming Disney film that doesn’t fit your agenda. In fact, you remind me of the army of anti-Disney trolls on this site, some who use different accounts to spread their nonsense. Hi Queen! [Btw I seriously wasted my time responding to you on the Black Panther board.] For others reading this, sure it’s no crime to not see the appeal of Lin-Manuel; you can think I’m assuming too much. But I know exactly where you’re coming from, OP. How so? Because considering you’re dedicated to slamming popular/beloved movies and actors (I’m noticing a pattern when it comes to their identity and the causes they support), it’s fair to say you’re one bitter mofo. Aaah! Their PR machines are killing me! All you can do is rant nonstop about successful individuals who are likely better people than you. Heh. Can’t stand them? Well... WHO CAN STAND YOUR HATEFUL INTOLERANT ASS!?! (Incels stand up for this troll.)



Bye, bye.

Thanks for your opinion. It's sad that you don't respect mine & have to resort to disparaging epthets against me personally, when in fact you don't know me. That is what is called a straw-man argument.

If you have anything intellectual to say, it was missed in your diatribe.

However, have a nice day. Please learn that people have differing opinions than you.

BTW, my grandfather was supposed to be a cartoonist....at Disney. I like Disney. In fact, I belong to the Walt Disney Family Museum in SF as a contribuing member. Was just there to see "9 Old Men" as a mater of fact, which btw, is fantastic and is leaving shortly. Just re-upped my membership.

My grandfather was not hired by Disney though he was promised a job (he was an AMAZING ARTIST btw) because there was a strike. I talked to the people at the museum about this. I was in tears, I called my mother about what happened. My grandfather moved his family to CA to work at Disney btw, because of the PROMISED job. They went completely flat broke after that. My family survived.

I've been in the original Batmobile as a child, my FATHER knew Roy Disney & I met him as a child.

As a kid I went to Disneyland every year.

Have a good day anyway.

Didn't care for Hamilton. I know I am in the minority.

reply

I dont think anyone does really, they just pretend to

reply

I had never heard of this guy until fairly recently, he certainly loves himself which like everything in life, is okay in moderation. As for that Hamilton thing, what is this some kind of stage show?

Yikes, I really am out of touch with what is popular these days. But I'm white so he wouldn't want me in the audience of his show anyway.

reply

Having actually seen the movie, I can say that Miranda was very good in the role. Sang and danced well, was charming and very likable, and had a decent go at a British accent, which puts him one up on Dick Van Dyck.

The group I saw the film with gushed over him, the minute I suggested that Zac Efron could have had the role. They were SO glad to have had Miranda instead!

reply

Definitely Miranda over Efron. That one makes me cringe just thinking about it.

reply

Hey Pal, Efron in "The Greatest Showman" was pretty great.

reply

TY for your kind reply. TBF, Efron surprised me in "The Greatest Showman", he was great in it. He might have done a great job in this as well. Thx! BTW, I love love love "The Greatest Showman"!
