How many ways from Sunday do we need to tell Hollywood filmmakers that we don’t want social justice activism stuffed down our collective gullets?
Hollywood producers feel bullied over the #MeToo movement – scared to death they’ll be “Wesinteined” – so they’re pumping out a never-ending stream of garbage “all chick” woke movies.
Nobody wants to see this nonsense.
The American public didn’t sexually assault young actresses on a casting couch, so why should we be punished with these G0d awful movies?
The latest flop is “Birds of Prey.” Another cringe “girl power” superhero movie that bombed at the box office.
Warner Brothers are now trying to fix things by changing the title of the movie.
Yeah, that will solve the problem. 🙄
The film, which is a spin-off of the DC Comics supervillain film Suicide Squad (2016), debuted in the United States at $33 million, well below its expected target of $45 million. Its international gross wasn’t much better at $48 million, meaning the company may struggle to break even on its $80 million production budget.
Producers were likely hoping to piggyback after the success of Suicide Squad, which amassed an impressive $746 million worldwide gross. Birds of Prey is based on Suicide Squad‘s breakout star, the nihilist Harley Quinn (played by Margot Robbie), although this fact is not clearly reflected in much of the film’s advertising.
The film’s original title was technically Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), although its adverts have simply labeled it as Birds of Prey. Yet it now appears that producers believe its failure to promote Robbie’s character is a factor in the film’s lack of success, and have consequently renamed it Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.
Whether the change in title will make any impact is yet to be seen. However, another reason for the film’s lack of success might be its predictable effort to appear “woke” by aggressively pushing political and feminist themes. [Breitbart]
Here’s the preview for the movie:
Breitbart’s John Nolte said it best:
The terms of Birds of Prey aren’t hard to figure out. In this #MeToo era, where misandry is acceptable, even championed, you know everyone with a penis is either going to be a sexist, a sociopath, a rapist, or all three…
The plot’s timeline opens by leaping all over the place, a jumble and an obvious attempt to juice a lifeless plot. And while I have no evidence to back this up, the whole thing reeks of desperate reshoots.
As far as the action, in-between our heroines complaining about terrible men, it’s almost non-stop. But because you know the girls will prevail there are no real stakes, which makes it monotonous and numbing.
