The Official Death Of Superhero Movies

The Official Death Of Superhero Movies

Not all news is bad. Like this: Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer are ready to save the world on the set of their superhero movie Thunder Force.

Here’s a live-action shot.

The article says:

McCarthy and Spencer looked fully prepped to take on some villains as they rocked their superhero costumes.

The ladies donned some black body armor, which featured their superhero emblems on the chest.

They sported it over some textured blue tights, which accentuated their gorgeous curvy figures.

By which they mean two grotesque bloated ugly women squeezed into latex like overstuffed kishka, strut about and look preposterous. The only surprise is that neither has purple hair. And it’ll only cost you $15 to watch it!

I’m guessing about the $15. I haven’t been to the movies in years, not since Climate Hustle in which Yours Truly became a movie star and celebrity, and therefore given immunity for anything I might say.

The reason for my absence at the theater is because if a movie isn’t obvious pozzed propaganda, it’s a cartoon with a plot line that would not tax the mental powers of an Antifa member.

There are two rules, it seems to me, for any movie to be made big these days. It has to (1) involve costumed “super heroes” possessed of unbelievable powers, or (2) have a female hero.

Watching some young girl CGI lightning-bolt kung fu an infinity of obstacles, each impossible to overcome, yet each defeated in a snap, as she soars through the air, disdainful of gravity and wearing a carefully crafted grimace on her face, is not my idea of a good time.

Gazing at two fat ugly broads thunder through Chicago as they scowl-grin at the camera surely is less preferable than a water boarding. What is their super power, anyway? Threatening to call HR?

Now Martin Scorsese himself has said that live-action cartoons are “not cinema.

“I tried, you know?” the director said when asked if he had seen Marvel’s movies. “But that’s not cinema.”

He continued: “Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

Beware the So’s Yer Old Man Fallacy! Perhaps cartoons are less bad than other current genres, but that does not mean that cartoons aren’t bad. They are bad. They’re so awful that the computers responsible for generating the content might, as I’ve argued is impossible, finally become self aware after all and properly decide humanity should be destroyed.

Not to change the subject, but how do you stand there against a green screen and wave your arms around, trying to pretend electricity is zapping out of your fingertips, and maintain any dignity?

Anyway, point is, after this movie comes out and people are guilted into seeing it, because not seeing it would be racist and sexist and racist—yes, double-racist—then no one will have the stomach for even one more “super”hero movie. Unless one’s diet consists solely of soy. And this is a good thing.

    Thanks to your photo I’ve now seen all of Thunder Force that I need to see, now, or ever. See, just saved $15.00.

    I think their super power is they make the Earth shake with very step they take. We used to call it “thunder thighs.”

    I admit—my first thought was “they just have to fall on the bad guy to kill him”.

    I am so sick of women. I blocked a gazillion of them on blogs, etc, yesterday. I’m tired of having XX shoved down my throat. The fact that these creatures are sooooo deperate and such losers they will settle for being XX chromosomes is unfathomable. It’s disgusting and sad that females are such horrible, horrible failures they cannot do better than using genetics as their claim to fame. Same is true of using skin color for fame. It says you’re not really human, just a color.

    Haven’t been to a movie since around 2004, so I have no idea what they cost. Got rid of cable, too. Hollywood is saving me lots and lots of money by cranking out garbage. Thank you, Hollywood.

    While I love Scorcese he’s just wrong. We don’t make as much “cinema” because people don’t want to be depressed in 1970s New York all the time anymore. Also Marty, you made After Hours so nobody is without sin here.

    Next, I think you’re wrong about superhero movies in general. From Beowulf and the Odyssey on forward there is a strong tradition of heroes with fantastical powers. On average the MCU movies have been done well and with minimal poz. The Captain America movies in particular are practically a paean to old America. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is hated by the hard left for having serious right wing themes. Comic book doesn’t automatically translate to “childish bullshit”. They can be clever, creative, and fun and they can also be Thunder(thigh) Force.

    Comics are original American mythology. They’re beautiful, which is why seeing it degenerate is heart breaking.

    Hmmmm…. Perhaps it’s a comedy, and they merely just misspelled “FARCE” in the title announcement?

    “Gazing at two fat ugly broads thunder through Chicago as they scowl-grin at the camera surely is less preferable than a water boarding.”
    On the other hand, would you prefer a date with one of them or a water boarding?

    RE – “Here’s a live-action shot.”

    This just in: USGS has issued a retraction of the tsunami warning. What their seismometers detected was just a disturbance in the Farce…

    …the THUNDER FARCE _ making the galaxy safe and profitable for bakers and pasta chefs.

    One question – Were Kristie Alley and Oprah even considered for the “roles”?

  8. Gail Finke

    I agree with Hoyos here — comics are our mythology, and there are a lot of great super hero movies (not “grand cinema,” but excellent entertainment). There are a lot of awful superhero movies too — and please, tell me how many of the Westerns, science fiction, romantic comedy, and other genre movies ever made were even half decent? Much less all the crappy dramas? MOST movies made are bad. Most of those that aren’t just plain bad are fair to middling.

    Another problem with these movies is they reiterate the theme that the planet needs saving. Every nobody who sees them imagines him/herself in the hero role vicariously. That then translates under the barrage of propaganda to imagining you’re a climate justice hero. Some shrug it off, but the young tend to be convinced they have to do something against an imagined danger.

  10. I haven’t seen it on here yet, but if you haven’t mentioned it I suggest writing about the appalling blasphemy that recently took place in St. Peter’s Basilica, and to call upon the faithful to start a polite letter writing campaign to the pope and to plan out some sort of novena begging God to spare us his wrath.

    Just an idea.

  11. Now, tell me how you monetize this beautiful skill. How to save people money by getting them to NOT buy stuff.

    I would like to say that you saved me $15, but you didn’t. That is a movie that absolutely would not make it onto the leave the house list.

    I am sorry to say that I have seen Infinity War. Children were involved in me seeing that, but it was on Netflix and didn’t really cost me more than I was already paying.

    Ant Man — There is a super hero movie I can get behind. It’s sequel was fine also.

  12. Frederich

    People have been soaking this up for millennia take the Iliad
    or Odyssey for example their heroes and gods had an aesthetic appeal
    that these two entirely lack. They would have been better cast as
    Cyclops, faces blanked out, just one big uncomprehending eye in tights.

  13. Superhero stories are modern mythology. Leftists don’t like them in principle because they make men think about being great individuals rather than just cogs in the social system. The entire purpose of the literary movement started by New York Leftists in the early part of the 20th century was to get ride of larger-than-life heroes. It’s no wonder that a Leftists like Scorcese would disapprove.

  14. modernity will continue until morale improves

    superpower: 350 lbs of crap in 300 lb sack.

    “Anyway, point is, after this movie comes out and people are guilted into seeing it, because not seeing it would be racist and sexist and racist—yes, double-racist—then no one will have the stomach for even one more “super”hero movie.”

    Oh you optimist, Briggs.

    Well I’m not much of a superhero movie fan and I don’t care too much about what type of characters they have in a film and how they look.

    Nevertheless, I’ve given up on Hollywood a long time ago. 95% of the films that come out in the theaters today are extremely boring and aren’t worth paying 10 plus dollars whatsoever. All what Hollywood is capable of doing these days due their lack of imagination is making sequels and remakes. It’s basically the same storylines over and over again and there’s nothing creative about it at all. Moreover, Hollywood has a real tendency to ruin films with their sjw/lefist messages and themes they put in their movies. That new Stars Wars trilogy that they’ve been coming out with is one example out of many where they produce films with stupid snowflake messages or themes as well as being awful in terms of entertainment quality.

    For these reasons among many others, I rarely go to the theater anymore (and only go to the theater if I know the movie isn’t mainstream entertainment and is going to be at least half way a work of art). I mainly just watch B-movies and some old good tv shows and not waste my time and money on Hollywood movies. I, of course, could go on and on about how I loathe Hollywood these days but I think you get the picture.
