    I wouldn’t say it’s destroying Hollywood, but it is certainly changing it with both positive and negative effects

    If this was about Scarjo’s article, then no. She was wrong. She wants to play everything while others don’t even get to play themselves. Yes, in an ideal world an actor should play any character. But, in this world, some actors play every type of character.

    Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)

    I can’t answer this without getting into U.S. politics. But I will put it another way: There is a bipartisan effort in destruction in many areas which are of concern to the nation and its people.

    Nah, the decline of cinema attendance and a fragmented TV market are what’s killing Hollywood. LGBT characters aren’t killing Hollywood.

    Nope…

    Nowadays I am seeing actors of all races on screens, LGBT actors and characters having their stories told, victims speaking out about abuse, and nominees of all backgrounds at award shows.

    The industry is simply following the path of music, and it is becoming a streaming world.

    Lol, perhaps the only smart thing you’ve ever said, Bruce.

    Not that bullshit about political correctness, but the other thing. Indeed, follow the money: capitalism is an evil of society.

    LOL, wrong on all counts. Just stating the obvious.

    When you follow the money the cold, hard truth is that a very small number of financial elites have controlled the banks, mainstream media, academia and political parties for years.   This is evil capitalism, aka, crony capitalism.

    Free market capitalism is now demonized.

    As for political correctness, it is the purest bullshit. PC subverts reason and logic. Once you jettison facts and truth, critical thinking quickly becomes a thing of the past. PC is mind-numbing and is thought-destroying. We are not to consider facts and use our reason and logic to reach conclusions. No, we must agree with whatever PC B.S. the liberal elite are selling this week.

    And this BS is ruining movies,  one of the greatest art forms ever.

    The Woketards have destroyed the Charlie’s Angels franchise, just like they did Ghostbusters, Terminator, and Men in Black.
    (John Nolte)

    We now have four lucrative franchises that were originally created to appeal to everyone — men, women, young, old… Then the strident progressives goosestepped in, took over, and abused their power to exclude men, demean men, humiliate and mock men. And each time, the result is the same: box office catastrophe, the death of a golden goose franchise.

    Whether you are talking about the iconic television show that ran for five seasons starting in 1976, or the pair of Angels films (2000 and 2003) that starred Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and Cameron Diaz, the idea had been to entertain everyone.
    1) Men enjoyed the action scenes and the sex appeal that comes with gazing upon stunningly beautiful women who love to showcase their effect on men.
    2) Women enjoyed the wish-fulfillment of watching other women kick ass, solve crimes, join a sisterhood, get pampered by Charlie, and wear all the latest fashions.
    The Feminist Woketards have decreed that number one, the “male gaze,” is now “problematic” and therefore a Thoughtcrime, and what we will be punished with is the joyless, preachy, unimaginative death march that is Charlie’s Angels (2019).

    Fail

    For me it’s never been about political correctness. It’s about a gang so convinced that they’re right and I’m wrong that they feel a need to enforce their beliefs onto others.

    I can decide for myself what feels benevolent and what seems wrong, and I will resist anyone trying to tell me otherwise. This is the first step towards tyranny, and I’ll reject it until I leave this world.
