The best thing about the new Captain Marvel movie is it’s tribute and cameo appearance of Stan Lee, who died on November 12th, 2018. After that it goes down hill.
It is the same old, same old. Marvel Studios is stuck in a political correctness rut and can’t seem to extract itself.
Marvel needs to get back to it’s roots with movies like the original Captain America: The First Avenger released in 2011 (sadly even this franchise has gone down hill). A movie with a real story line, believable characters, real heroes and a great ending. Marvel Studios tries to use animation and visuals to replace strong performances by its actors. It just doesn’t work. Captain Marvel is played by Brie Larson. It appears that Brie has taken it upon herself to hate men, especially white men.
CCN.com’s Samantha Chang in a column titled Captain Marvel Faces Boycott Backlash Over Brie Larson’s ‘Man-Hating’ writes:
The boycott was launched by conservative author Jack Posobiec, a correspondent with One America News.
Posobiec started the Twitter hashtag Alita Challenge, urging his legion of social media followers to boycott “Captain Marvel” and see “Alita: Battle Angel” instead.
Here’s the CCN.com embedded video:
I agree with Jack Posobiec, Alita: Battle Angel is a much better film. In my review Alita – Battle Angel is Anti-Socialism & Pro-Christian I wrote:
Alita – Battle Angel is a visually stunning film with a heavy Christian theme. While Alita is a cyborg she is on a mission to confront evil wherever she may find it. Alita has unique abilities programmed in her that the Zalems and their agents will stop at nothing to destroy. These unique abilities include: a moral sense of right and wrong, kindness, a willingness to fight and die for the oppressed and of course great fighting skills. Alita is a human being. The Zalems want to stop Alita from becoming what she was ordained to be.
Brie Larson, like far to many in Hollywood, are into man shaming. According to M.G.T.O.W – Men Going Their Own Way:
“Shaming tactics” are emotional devices meant to play on a man’s insecurities and shut down debate. They are meant to elicit sympathy for women and to demonize men who ask hard questions. Most, if not all, shaming tactics are basically ad hominem attacks. It might be helpful to categorize the major shaming tactics that are hurled against men whenever a discussion arises about the very real actions and behavior of the female collective.
Captain Marvel is an insult to old white men like Stan Lee. It is an insult to all men. It is not worth your money. I suggest downloading a copy of Captain America: The First Avenger or Alita: Battle Angel. Your time, and money, will be better spent.
