no but imagine
Harry Potter as a tv show
sort of like Game of Thrones
where each season is a book
and each episode is a chapter
everything could be fleshed out
we would have everyone’s back story
and we would have HUNDREDS of hours of Harry Potter material
No but i want this so bad its not a joke
LET IT BE ANIMATED TOO SO THAT THE CHARACTERS CAN LOOK THE WAY THEY’RE MEANT TO

There’s this post about how if your feminism doesn’t include destroying racism it’s white supremacy.
This is why it’s white supremacy. Like yeah Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a man, but he’s also a man of color. Gloating about how Lucy, a film where a white woman who’s shown to be shooting men of color for not speaking English in a country where English isn’t widely spoken… isn’t intersectional feminism. Instead it’s the essence of white feminism because it’s glorifying the white hero in a non white country, when we are less than a century away from white Europe having colonized the majority of what is now referred as “third world countries” make no mistake colonialism is not dead. So basically if you see Lucy in the theater unfollow me rn.
Boycott Lucy watch Hercules.
I watched Hercules today. It was a good film, with great supporting actors, quite a few funny moments, Ian McShane (YES) and a lot of action. The Rock proves to be a very good actor, and really sells the character of Hercules.
I’m not surprised the imagery being used around Lucy leading Hercules in the box office. It feeds on all the negative views of the “Far East” that Hollywood has been milking for years. Nothing has changed really. I will say this… we’ve already known that white women lead movies (action or otherwise) sell. We know that by looking at all the romantic dramas, adventure shows, and YA adaptations lead by young white women that make money. So yeah, we’ll get MORE white women lead dramas, action, romantic comedies, and sci-fi movies. But will that mean we’ll see Black, Asian, and Latinas getting to lead movies, too, since female lead action movies are selling and have been for the last 10 years? NOPE.
But “yay feminism”… or some shit.
My friend mentioned (just yesterday actually) that English is pretty widely used in Taiwan, the population has a 95% literacy rate, and that English is compulsory at a certain age…so Lucy’s pretty damn ignorant on a meta-level (as if we didn’t already know that just by viewing the trailer).
Those headlines remind me of those “kill all men” memes.
Okay so I saw this and thought it would be a happy post about how cool it is that a female lead show is getting hits or a laugh at the titles
I was wrong
you guys are being dicks.
I have watched neither movie and this is what I’ve gotten from this post
Hercules - “Omg man of colour, omg people aren’t saying its good, omg its good, omg there aren’t enough of these”
Lucy - “Omg total feminism movie, omg lead character is a dick because shes a white woman. Omg don’t watch.”
Thats all I’m getting, well that and the fact that you all seem to think that the woman out doing a coloured guy is something to do with thet fact she’s a white woman.
Which is not true
Its due to the fact that more people are watcing the movie.
And when have you ever watched a movie with the main character a woman of colour? I know one.
Woman are still behind in the movies, and frankly, who cares which movie is doing better, leads all just be happy a black man and a white woman are earning ore than we do.
Or maybe yell at the fans, not the actors.
OR BETTER YET NOT YELL AT ANYONE
