    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), Nicole (The Others), 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.

    Political topics have been around and discussed in fims and hollywood for long. It’s not a 2010s thing.

    The answer is YES.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

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

    “Is not being an asshole killing Hollywood?”

    Fixed that for you.

    No, btw.

    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.

    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.

    To a degree.

     

    It shouldn’t be a bad thing but it occasionally ruins some moments (ex. The all-female Avengers moment).

    Have a great day if you see this!

    People like Naomi Wolfe gave excellent presentations on how we are already following the Nazi paradigm, and others like Charlotte Iserbyt nailed the sorry state of the conventional education system. Both of them are brilliant women and I’ve been on board with them for decades.
