<blockquote>The idea is ludicrous. How many people would have to be involved? How many bystanders would have to turn a blind eye to the conspiracy?</blockquote> Very few people are needed. You don't need to buy tickets personally anymore, you can just buy them in internet. You can even have AI bots writing 'verified' reviews using those tickets. You can buy tickets and write fake reviews using the same farm. <blockquote>There is no evidence whatsoever that Disney bought tickets. </blockquote> But there's strong clues. Reports about empty seats. Reports about the exact same pattern of seats bought in different sessions. And above all, Disney itself. If numbers were true, Captain Marvel would have been the most profitable movie in the Marvel franchise (box office/cost). Have you seen 'Captain Marvel 2' greenlighted? Disney says they made big money, but they behave as they didn't. Acts speak louder than words. The Chuck Norris movies, and other action movies from the 80s like Commando where the main character was all-powerful were action comedies. You didn't take them seriously, those were movies to watch with friends and beers and have good laughs. It's a completely different story. Comedies are comedies, they don't have to make sense, they have to be fun. Buying seats is part of marketing. Disney needs some movie to be successful, sometimes because of brand image, sometimes because of politics. Captain Marvel was the perfect example: they couldn't allow that movie to fail. Here there's a similar situation: they can't allow Rise of Skywalker to fail, if they want to continue the franchise in the next decade. And test screenings look VERY bad, so chances are they are gonna buy. The question, as the OP says, is how many. Yeap, I understand what you mean. The same happens with a Christian movie. A Christian with strong faith probably thinks something like '<i>ah, I like this actor, cool guy, great actor, so happy to see playing the priest</i>' while I'm thinking '<i>damn, this is just more religious proselytizing, Christians good Atheists bad, selling the Bible yadda yadda yadda...</i>'. Nolte is playing an Alien character. Kuiil is not human. So you understand the term is correct. You still prefer the other one, that's fine. What I don't get is: why do you think I have any interest in your personal preferences? I just don't give a shit about which term you prefer. I could understand it if the term was more precise. But it happens that the term 'alien' is much useful here since it's clear I'm talking about the non-human, while with 'species' that would require additional clarification. Whatever. <blockquote> since the time Howard Hawks came onto the scene and showed the real picture of how women truly are when free of social pressures put onto them as to how men and women should behave</blockquote> I'm afraid it's the opposite. When wome are free of social/economical pressure, most women like to focus in activities related to human interaction and nurturing. That's called the 'gender equality paradox' and you have some books and documentaries about it. http://www.epicenternetwork.eu/blog/the-swedish-gender-equality-paradox/ Blue is my favorite one, with Red as a close second. I found White kind of disappointing. The traditional hero is somebody that struggles to do what's right. He's often flawed in some way or another. Perhaps he's virtuous but lacks courage. Perhaps he has courage but lacks discipline. Perhaps he lacks self-confidence, or skill, or charisma. Perhaps he's too young, or too old, or too tired, or too damaged, or too innocent, or too cynical. What makes a character interesting is his flaws. A Mary Sue, by default, has no flaws. She (or he) doesn't struggle: it's the ultimate empowered fantasy. While the hero travels a journey, the Mary Sue takes a promenade. Actresses that show that level of performance (I'd think, for example, Meryl Streep) don't have problem finding roles. View all replies >
