More Hollyweird Crap



We all know that no mainstream movie is complete these days without a 'comedic' moment of a man being slapped in the face or kicked in the balls.

Now comes a movie in which seems to integrate all the elements of modern girl-power into one: the woman is a superhero, plus she gets to spend the movie beating up on her ex-boyfriend. This film (called 'My Super Ex-girlfriend') is called a romantic comedy.

Yes! Beating up on men, humiliating them, and emotionally dominating them is sexy! Romantic! Funny!

Just imagine if a movie portrayed a man beating up and controling a woman as being sexy, romantic and funny.

The good thing is that many men are waking up to these double standards. I was researching this movie on www.imdb.com and lots of people had left comments remarking on it.

I saw a billboard ad for that the other day and instantly sneered at it. Another pile of man-bashing shit.

Still, it's a vicious circle; the more man-bashing crap to come out of Hollywood, the less men go to cinemas, so only producing man-bashing crap will make producers money.

I haven't been to the cinema in ages; the last recent movie I liked was Donnie Darko.

In a few years 90% of cinema audiences will be women. Assuming they're not already. I rarely enounter guys who go to the cinema, apart from a few who go with girlfriends.

Video games are far better than movies. At least they haven't been taken over by women and manginas...yet.

If video games get taken over I think that will be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Or us men will just create another medium of entertainment and move on. Wherever men go, women try to follow, and whenever women try to follow, we pack up and clear off. And so it goes.

Saw the ad to this, what a crock of shit. Made me ill to see it. They should make a movie with the genders reversed. I'd watch it 10 times at least.

Re:Video games
The main video game magazines and sites keep crapping on about women gamers. They get them to write articles about how women are all about "enjoying the game". WTF? Why the hell do you think men play it? They come up with some male-bashing crap as to why men

The software companies are saying they need to cater to women more as they are an undeveloped market. Fine, just give them there own games. But no, that's not what they want to do. They want to take games men enjoy and make it female crap.

Leave our games alone.
You screwed up literature, you screwed up theatre, you screwed up music, you screwed up cinema. Stop screwing everything up wenches.
