OK, A Few More Thwacks at the Expired Equine

Actress Meryl Streep (whose estimated net worth is $45 Million and who has received over a hundred awards, but whines about being ‘vilified’) in her speech at the Golden Globe Self-Congratulation Orgy stated that without Hollywood, “you’ll have nothing to watch but Football and MMA, and these are not the arts.”

First off, most people like both of those things better… a lot better… than Miss Sloane or The Angry Birds Movie.  I liked  Heck, I like football even more than the movies I liked from last year.

Second, you realize that she is lecturing us on behalf of an industry that produces mostly sequels to comic books movies and reboots of movies done better in the 1980s. Movies written to a rigid mechanical formula developed to ensure conformity with audience expectations. I guess ‘these are the arts.’

Yeah, and also, she gave a standing ovation to a guy who drugged and raped a thirteen year old girl, but she’s our moral and intellectual superior. Because she’s in ‘the arts,’ just like the guy who drugged and raped a thirteen year old girl.

BTW, have you ever notice that the way the MFM reports it, Republicans never “respond to criticism” but always “lash out at critics.” A Republican could say, “I respectfully disagree” in a tone of voice like an NPR newsreader, and the headline would still be “Republican lashes out at critics!”

It’s kind of a tiresome cliché, don’t you think?

And Another Thing: Ed Asner, Debra Messing, and Rosie O’Donnell are calling for Hollywood to boycott America until Trump resigns; i.e. No more movies, no more TV as long as Donald Trump is in office.

“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops,”

Yeah, that’s totally gonna happen.

  1. Second, you realize that she is lecturing us on behalf of an industry that produces mostly sequels to comic books movies and reboots of movies done better in the 1980s. Movies written to a rigid mechanical formula developed to ensure conformity with audience expectations. I guess ‘these are the arts.’

    Or remakes of 80s / 90s french comedies that half of us (frogs and snails eaters) only found mildly amusing or downright silly cliches when compared to the true golden age of our movie “industry” (*) the post WWII 50s-60s — prior to our leftist baby boomers PCness era.

    (*) which, btw, was more like a free thinkers’ cinema hobby than an “industry” worth of the name anyway

  2. Yeah, that’s totally gonna happen.

    And yeah, we’re, like, already, like, totally, like, freaking out at, like … Imagine!

    … the thought that our good virtue overlords are appalled enough to only consider sending that sort of “message” to the rest of us, poor deplorables we!

  3. These are the same people that have a soft spot in their hearts and have somewhat honored Leni Riefenstahl. I am not surprised.

  4. Careful, Meryl. If you louts don’t make movies, somebody else will start making movies. The market always supplies demand. Besides, I doubt even you are wealthy enough to survive with no paychecks for eight years.

  5. I’m so offended by Meryl’s comments that I will never go to a movie in which she stars in again. Her facts are totally off when she indicates that all foreigners will be deported. Such balderdash! Trump has said some stupid things, but he will be a far better president than Obama could ever be. Why don’t the elite actors start a movement to unite the country instead of their divisive commentaries demonstrating their ignorance and feelings of superiority. I hope they all go on strike. Hypocrites!!!

  6. Outside of some outsider films – Hollywood not making movies does have some good to it. So – sure, go right ahead and boycott America and Trump. Hollywood needs us a whole lot more than the other way around.

    It is alot like a child holding the breathe threat. And – ok – do it.

    Sadly, I am afraid they will all “go on strike” as diligently as they have, as we all know (?!?!?) relocated to Canada.

    Or to Mexico.

    Or to Cuba.

    Or to Venezuela.

    Or to Eritrea.

    Or, etc, etc.

  9. No more movies based on comic strips, no more movies based on video games, no more sequels to movies based on comic books and video games, no more bad remakes of 1970’s TV shows?

    Promises, promises.

  10. Have any high- or middle-level celebritards actually relocated to Canada, Spain, France or one of the “Workers’ Paradises” since November 2016?? **crickets**

    – Thought so…

  11. Angry Birds is IMHO actually a very subtly crafted fvck you to Obama’s America and its inane spinelessness in the face of its enemies. It flips the bird, pun intended, to the bring back our girls incompetence among other things. Watch it and see.

  12. I didn’t care about or watch the Golden Globes, but my understanding is that Meryl Streep laid special emphasis on Trump’s “mocking of a disabled reporter.” Which, if true, makes it all the more stupid, because from what I’ve read, the reporter is not someone like Stephen Hawking, whose physical impairments could be spotted by Helen Keller from Low Earth Orbit — his symptoms are subtle enough that Trump might’ve been telling the truth when he claimed he didn’t know about the dude’s disability.

    In other words, Streep’s protest looks less like compassion and more like gimp-sploitation.

  15. Yeah, and also, she gave a standing ovation to a guy who drugged and raped a thirteen year old girl, but she’s our moral and intellectual superior.

    Which is why I think she didn’t beat the tired drum of “sexist pig” that every other female celeb/activist/outraged citizen has done for the past six months. It was rather curious though, to hear her take up the “evil foreigner” rant as well as the “mocking of the disabled” tact, since that isn’t what seems to be the approved SJW talking point (which was focus group tested during the campaign).

  16. As V the K hinted, most Hollywood product today adheres to a rigid formula. Even more formulaic is the exhibition schedule of theater operators, who basically only book movies that their primary audience—13-22 year-old males who are looking for date night activities and who will happily buy $5.00 fountain drinks and $10.00 tubs of popcorn—will pay top dollar for on a Friday or Saturday night. This means that movies for adults get showtimes like 5 or 7 PM on a Thursday or 11 AM & 9 PM on a Sunday and have a run measured in hours instead of weeks.

    Nonetheless, there are some gems out there if you keep your eyes peeled and live in the right locale. Even if the Beautiful People in La La Land stop producing stuff for the next eight years, there are plenty of foreign entries who would love to have a larger shot at the lucrative US market. Maybe it’s time for those mouthy entertainment types to put their (lack of) money where their mouths are and show their hatred of xenophobia by allowing more non-US entertainment product to saturate Middle America.

  17. No matter how much Hollywood hates Trump, they are not going to shut down just to spite him.

    Comment by V the K — January 11, 2017 @ 8:34 am - January 11, 2017

  18. What a great idea. Self boycott. Only a rich out of touch celebutard would suggest such a thing. She doesn’t care about all the thousands of people who make a living in the arts.

  19. Streep knows how to deliver a speech. Right from the heart. Brava!

  20. his symptoms are subtle enough that Trump might’ve been telling the truth when he claimed he didn’t know about the dude’s disability.

    Wow, that’s a reach. Don’t break your neck.

  21. Maybe Trump is comfortable making light of the handicapped as a coping mechanism.

    But, hey, it’s just the Political Correct Police getting up-in-arms over NOTHING. How a public figure treats and depicts the handicap is no reflection on what kind of a person they are, nor an example of what they’re setting. Trump represents EVERYONE, even if he makes fun of them.

    There’s no use holding the guy accountable and criticising him. It’s all Fake News anyway!

    The denial and apathy is funny, though. The complicity is astounding.
