Hollywood is purging itself of popular franchises that it deems in violation of its progressive mission. The movie-making culture is a closed group that excludes those who refuse to follow the progressive line. What American audiences have come to love, they hate.
Exhibit A. Ghostbusters
I’ve no plans to see it and seeing a boycott against it would prove amusing. It looks devoid of anything beyond that stupid form of comedy that preteens might enjoy and that drunk college students do enjoy (proving that college is an over-priced extension of high school).
The use of four female characters, dumbed-down comedy, and nausea inducing special effects are deliberate choices. Hollywood is taking a film that appealed to a mostly male audience and that inspired many a male writer and purposely destroying it with a sub-bar reboot. In other words, the Ghostbusters remake is not based on any love for the original, but sheer disdain.
In an article at The Daily Caller, Jim Treacher openly states:
As the Daily Caller’s resident Social Justice Warrior, it’s my duty to inform you that the original Ghostbusters is misogynist hate speech and must be destroyed.
Exhibit B: James Bond
In this clip from Goldeneye M openly calls Bond a “sexist, misogynist dinosaur” and then proceeds to tell him that she has no compunctions about his dying as an agent. While the death of a special agent is an accepted reality and the dead agents honored, her callousness reflects just how much she hates Bond and how much Hollywood hates men.
In this single clip, M proclaims exactly what Hollywood thinks about films like Ghostbusters. They are a sexist, misogynist dinosaur that needs to be sent to their deaths without hesitation. This is why Hollywood reboots films like Ghostbusters.
Exhibit C: Star Wars
Anyone who is a fan of the 1977 film Star Wars and the subsequent franchise and who know what Hollywood is doing hated Episode VII: The Force Awakens. It was a reboot of the 1977 film and followed the same formula. While pure fanboys overlooked the obvious and made it a top-seller at the box office, the film was not meant to perpetuate the franchise, but to sound its death knell. The plans to produce a new Star Wars film every year is an attempt to run the thing into the ground until the fan base grows tired of it.
J.J. Abrams, having introduced a goddess female hero into the Star Wars franchise, aiming to eliminate any possibility of another “Princess,” is now pushing for gay characters.
Of course! When I talk about inclusivity it’s not excluding gay characters. It’s about inclusivity. So of course.
This is not to appeal to the Star Wars fans, but to force a distaste of Star Wars, so they will abandon it. Hollywood has a disdain both masculine figures and men who are inspired. What Hollywood wants is for men to get in line with the feminist-progressive culture they are working so hard to perpetuate.
It is merely a matter of time before The Godfather is rebooted and deliberately ruined for the same reason. That which men treasure, Hollywood despises.
