Ok, a bit early but better late than never today.
Time to start the (semi) reviews of #blackpanther
#ReadyPlayerOne #PacificRimUprising and #Bladerunner2
First off, I will always love the first #BladeRunner always.
It put a lot of things in perspective...and had callouts to culture etc, etc.
The second movie was hurt immensely by the lack of new stuff Japan did over the last 30 years.
You cant say the same for #ReadyPlayerOneMovie
As a movie with a feel and a look #ReadyPlayerOneMovie is leagues better than #BladeRunner2049. This was the big mistake of the latter movie because even if it was more coherent than the former, its look and references were lacking killing the vibe.
now to #blackpanther . I made it a rule not to see marvel films, but i did see some of the movie. Ad Men, make this a rule if you want to stand out - Disney is the most cynical sons of bitches when it comes to advertising on this side of the planet.
Disney "Weaponized" #blackpanther to a point that was a bit concerning. The movie (as much as I seen) was just a typical marvel movie. There were some wonderful ideas, but too much of it got lost in the LARP.
That being said, if such a advertising campaign was needed for a movie with a black lead it should have been with #PacificRimUprising not #Blackpanther
because the former film was a million times more relevant than what #blackpanther
ever will be.
BUT YET... YET... both movies didnt have the strong secondary leads as #ReadyPlayerOneMovie did. And the sadder thing is (for fans of the #blackpanther movie) that the strongest female black lead is in #ReadyPlayerOneMovie than #blackpanther
which leads me to the meat of the argument. #ReadyPlayerOne as a book was trying way too hard to be Necromancer from William Gibson (you know him as the @GreatDismal on here)
but as a film? Outside of one or two nagging issues, a LOT of cursing - Spielberg is literally a masterclass underrated genius. This film has NO RIGHT to be this good. Its better than that.
Call it a love letter with a warning. Unlike other films that tend to be "Catholic Nun without the Catholic redemption or even anything remotely spiritual" this doesn't hits you hard but it makes one think deeply about technology and how it creates separation and not unity.
and unlike #bladerunner2049, which asked some what of the same questions, you feel in #ReadyPlayerOneMovie that it mattered. The fact that folks used a book that had no business to be a movie and turned into a great piece of work is a testament to greatness of Steven.
and unlike many critics of the book world who pontificate these days about "bringing people together under OUR RULEZtm" I knew what the #ReadyPlayeOne author was going for - a 80's film. He just tried a bit too hard at it and it hurt the book.
So to recap:
#Bladerunner2049 - hurt by vibe. Successfully done better by #ReadyPlayerOneMovie
#blackpanther = hurt by a successful but deeply cynical ad campaign, #PacificRimUprising and #ReadyPlayerOneMovie better at leads and secondary characters than #BlackPanther
#PacificRimUprising is only a 3rd as good as the first #PacificRim movie (because of one BULLSHIT part, yall know what it is!!!), but isnt even in the same league as #ReadyPlayerOneMovie
#ReadyPlayerOneMovie had everything one asked for a movie and in a movie in this late state. The things they pulled of was smart. There were some moments that i went like... 😁😁😁😁 and others? 😌😌😌😌
dont be hindered by the detractors. 9 times out of 10 #rottentomatoes is wrong. The critics are too enamored by calling their college professors all the time during the week and weekends for spelling and grammar and guru bullshit to even review correctly anymore.
learn from a brotha from the streets, not owned by the real owners of black twitter - who learned real ownage from the real MOTHERFUCKER, The Movie #ReadyPlayerOne is the one. (review over)

We need to talk about weak shit. And how some of my heroes accept that shit and it needs to stop the weak shit this instant...
While Im happy for Adult Swim and the LA shindig they are doing. We have to explain a few things and a few missteps they continue to make. Now Father is a good dj and all, hes not the best. He has moments of greatness, but he isnt as consistent. Deifying him is disappointing IMHO
Lets get to the people in the concert. While RTJ will always put on a great show, my question was why Triple Redd over Daniel Curry? This shit is unfuckingfathamable to me. Clout Cobain was powerful beyond all reproach, even in a way somewhat better in parts than This Is America

So after last week, yall want to get rid of habus corpus. "Innocent until Proven Guilty" Well aint that some shit right now coming from people who slept during AP Civics for fuck sakes.
This is our whole fucking culture today - no balls, no principles, blame some other nation for our children foibles and sufferings, Use another countries music to fuck over actual talent from another country and ours. Yall not serious and yall aint shit.
I say this with great sadness and anger, but i feel deeply sorry for white dudes, and for my brothas in the struggle, and my brothas in Japan and all over. The women running game today, and who wish to run every other thing aint worth what God made them to be.

Im going to talk BTS and K-Pop and #metoo and #TimesUp and the American music industry and how all of its related in a few...
So after all that noise all day, we need to get to a problem that is just as worse - the acceptance of BTS and K-Pop as a bromide from all the changing metrics in the American music industry and its issues. It's only going to create more headache.
The American Music Industry and the rest of the entertainment industry in the last several years put their bank on the Hallu Movement - a way of seeing popular culture and technology via Korean sensibilities.

I read something today (That's why i made that earlier quote it came from that post) that the concept of the Alpha "female" doesnt exist.
That person who wrote it is correct 100% because Alpha/Beta/Delta/Omega are praxolgies of action that humans do during ones life.
What women need to get over, is that their looks is connected to their accomplishments. any womans accomplishments only add to it.
Now here comes the sad fucking truth. The truth is that their anything close to Alpha Females, It would be the WWE/Pro Wrestling Females (cont)
And fitness models. The fact that there is such a movement to call those types of work "shameful" by those women who work in the major corporations and to have them replaced by the droll businesswoman etc is horseshit.

Its time to tell you a secret of TV that people tend to overlook and really misunderstand.
All aspects of promotion, production, and look in a series, news franchise, docuseries and other such are forms of art.
These arts are tools of force projection of the person using it.
So when one builds a lower third, the CGI graphics for intros into sports to news, to the building of sets and lighting - you get to see the tools built to force project gravitas. At times it doesnt work, and in other times it takes one to a time and place that is unforgettable.
#Toonami's greatest success, and ECW's greatest success and many other successes was the responsible use of technology and art and the way they spoke to their audiences without belittling them or putting them down or insulting their intelligence

Its time to talk about CBS, and the issues surrounding the CEO of the company and the show runner of 60 Minutes and the rest of the news division.
This company is in a fight to stay away from Viacom (I will get to them in a moment too) or at least merge with them in a light that is more "sane" to CBS.
In all reality, the company is heading to shambles.
Les Moonves to many in the media circles is the great leader of our times. But he has done four things that lead to the end of American Leadership in media. He and Sherry Redstones father decoupled Promotion of network over promotion of series-
