Oh, he is mad because noone cares. Make a movie people want to watch. I can educate myself on my own, but thanks for your concern.
Same! I've worked from home alot this year and I constantly have YouTube or the radio or something playing in the background. This hasn't come up once.Yeah, seriously... Ridley might want to blame the distributor 20th Century Studios for poor marketing. This is literally the first time I've even heard of this movie and I'm on YouTube all day and exposed to countless ads. lol
„ that deals with social issues relevant today.“
When I read this I immediately think of ‚great, another woke movie‘ and it‘s an automatic no go for me. Checking the web, it really does appear to be the case.
"is an epic historical drama set in 14th-century France that deals with social issues relevant today."
In other words... another WOKE pile of smoldering DUNG! I'll pass.
Have to agree. He's PO'd because the movie did not bring in more megabucks he does not need. So, he's striking out at what he thinks is the problem when the fact that the movie did not bring in the "desperately needed megabucks" is probably more due to COVID than anything else.It's not me. It's the world who is wrong.
Absolutely. The theater experience is total crap these days no matter the generation of the viewer sitting next to you. It is not worth it. If I decide to see this, I will wait until my local library gets it and then borrow it and watch it in my own home - free of screaming little kids, and everyone, no matter the generation, on their cell phones, not to mention crap theaters where you can hear all the booms and bangs from the next theater, too.I haven't enjoyed a theater experience since probably the release of the Lord of the Ring movies. I've seen some movies in the theater since the LotR trilogy, but my experiences kept going downhill - and this is from visiting multiple different movie theaters over the past 10 years.
LotR trilogy came out in the early 2000s. Having a phone with immediate internet connection was a common thing for most people. The iPhone didn't even release until sometime around 2007 - 4 years after LotR trilogy came out. People didn't have easy access to stupid youtube and there wasn't snatchchat (I mean, snapchat) and you didn't have $hitty social media polluting people's attention span and feeding off their ignorance faster than the normal news media outlets.
Seeing movies years ago was a decent, enjoyable experience.
These days everyone has a cell phone so you always have some issue with phones going off or people talking on them. Or you have entitled pricks that are bored because their cell phone isn't keeping them occupied during the movie so they start throwing things. Now you get to wear your mask for 90-120 minutes straight while you sit and watch a movie....
No thanks. I'm not spending, on average, $20 a person to see a movie in the theater to be annoyed by morons. I'll buy the movie when it releases and then add it to my Plex server so I can watch it whenever I want.
"Youth" is a bit of a stretch as @Enaks said: some of us are categorized as millennials and already 40 or 41 with most millennials being at least on their mid to late 30s. Sorry but we haven't been the "youth" of the world since the time Britney Spears was a rising star in the late 90s early 2000s.
So once again pandering to the critics, which the audiences hate, and they wonder why audiences dont like it.Me too. This is the first time hearing about this movie.
Maybe their adds just ran on TV, radio and printed press, where only older gens linger.
Just saw the trailer and found it boring and cliché. It smells like sjw propaganda in medieval Europe.
Yeah, movies that try to push "modern social issues" are crap. They have always been crap, and they will always be crap, because the only type of person who wants to listen to out of touch hollywood elites whinge on about propagandized issues are out of touch shut ins that live in insufferable echo chambers (see: twitter and tumblr).OMG! Another "Woke" movie. Must be crap!
You're technically right, (however reluctant I may be to confer that status on anyone other than myself). Mr. Scott was squeezed out at the beginning of WWII, and not in the baby boom immediately thereafter.Where to begin? Since Ridley Scott is 81 he is NOT a boomer. Perhaps you could learn a little bit of arithmetic before using my generation's nick name in the pejorative sense?
