Why are these high-quality film and television works criticized or even removed from the shelves? Because black people are not satisfied.
Why is a film and television work praised by the audience? Why is it criticized by the audience?
If you have an audience, just say, aren’t you nonsense? If you make a movie and TV series, you will praise it for a good film and a good quality, and you will scold it for a bad film.
According to common sense, this is indeed the case.
However, the times are changing, and this standard is no longer applicable in Hollywood now.
Why do you say that?
Those four words are still politically correct.
Everyone knows that there are currently two very influential political correctness trends in Hollywood. One is feminist and the other is black.
Since these two trends penetrated Hollywood, the criteria for judging whether a film and television work should be praised or criticized has changed.
In the earliest days, it was not the film and television work itself that suffered, but the behind-the-scenes production team.
For example, the variety media at the time issued an anger against the “Star Wars” movie series, and there were too many white men behind the scenes.
Variety Show first counts the 17 theater-line movies in this series in the past 41 years.
Among them, there are a total of 24 directors and screenwriters, of which 23 are white males, one white female, and none of them are black.
Then he directly criticized the production team of “Star Wars“, saying why it has been more than 40 years, and there is no black director in the series?
There are no black male directors, and black female directors still don’t. Why don’t screenwriters let blacks be the screenwriters? and many more.
Of course, anyone with a discerning eye knows that this is a sign of a delusion. Isn’t ability to make a film the first requirement?
As long as he is strong in directing and screenwriting, does it matter whether he is white or black?
What’s interesting is that not long after the release of the variety show article, the Marvel movie “Black Panther” was released.
After the film was released, it won a box office of 700 million U.S. dollars in North America.
Excellent masterpieces such as “Titanic” and “The Dark Knight” are far behind.
The scores of various media were all close to 100%. At that time, there was hardly any criticism on the Internet.
In fact, anyone who has watched the movie “Black Panther” will know that this film is objectively an ordinary superhero movie.
If we simply say that “quality is determined by quality”, this film cannot be better than “Titanic” in any case.
The reason for this achievement is to rely on the political correctness of blacks.
This is actually quite sad. To evaluate whether a movie is good or not, it turns out to be based on whether it has been cast in the favor of black people rather than how well it is made.
By the same token, since the criterion of whether a movie should be praised or scolded has become whether to satisfy black people.
So naturally, there are many classic movies and televisions that cannot escape the fate of “reversal”.
The first one was “Friends“.
As a popular American drama in the last century, “Friends” is not only an eternal classic in the hearts of many people, but also a memory of a generation.
Many people even regard it as an enlightenment drama for learning English, and it has a huge influence all over the world.
And because of its excellent production, this drama has always been praised by the public and has won many awards. It is a typical positive drama.
However, after the black people attacked, the situation changed.
The black people attacked “Friends”, saying that there are six protagonists in this series, but they are all white, and there is no other black.
Why is it that such a typical series that discriminates against black people has always been in the top row of American classics?
Finally, because he couldn’t bear the pressure, the producer of “Friends” came out crying and apologized publicly, saying that he knew he was wrong.
When I made this drama 20 years ago, I didn’t think about racial diversity. I was damned. If she could come back, she would definitely let black people play the leading role in it.
Of course, it’s not just TV shows that suffer, but also movies.
“Gone with the Wind” in the 1930s is known as a classic movie handed down from generation to generation.
“Gone with the Wind” not only dominated the box office No.1 throne for more than 30 years, and has always been a very lofty position in the film industry.
However, because one of the characters is a black maid, it makes many blacks feel dissatisfied.
At that time, “Gone with the Wind” was shown on Warner’s HBO MAX streaming media.
However, officials received excessive complaints, denounced the film for vilifying black people and letting black people become slaves.
Finally, Warner had to take “Gone with the Wind” off the shelves, and the reason given was “discrimination and injustice against blacks.”
Of course, this time aroused dissatisfaction from many other ordinary audiences.
A large number of people said that I spent money to subscribe to your Warner streaming media, and now you even gave me my favorite movies? Believe it or not, I will cancel my subscription next month?
Some people objectively stated that the actress who played the role of a black maid in “Gone with the Wind” finally won an Oscar for this role.
Why should this movie be blamed?
What’s more, the background of this film, the environment at that time is like that, there is no deliberate ugly statement.
Finally, Warner put “Gone with the Wind” back on the shelves.
However, a notice was added to the opening of the movie, stating that the plot in this movie may be uncomfortable and even painful.
In addition, many American dramas were cut or removed from the shelves at that time, and the reasons were very interesting.
For example, in the series, there are scenes of ladies making mud masks. The mud masks look black. The black people say that this is a reflection of black people and is discrimination.
Some gangsters wore black masks, and the black people said that they were mocking black people and committed crimes, and so on.
After “captured” the existing film and television, the trend continued to “attack” the film projects that had not yet started filming.
The new version of “Cleopatra” confirms that the heroine will be played by the actress Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman.
As a result, it directly caused a lot of dissatisfaction among blacks.
They launched a frantic attack on Gal Gadot on social media.
There are a lot of foul language, in addition to telling Gal Gadot to rush to see Jesus, but also greetings to his family and genealogy.
They said that Cleopatra is Egyptian and Egypt is an African country, so Cleopatra should be black.
What do you mean by letting a white man play the role? Come to grab the role of our black people?
At the beginning, Gal Gadot fans and some passersby patiently explained to the black people that Cleopatra is not black.
And put out a lot of popular science materials for fans and passers-by to explain the race of Cleopatra.
However, afterwards, the black people couldn’t hold back the black people’s “Don’t listen or listen, I don’t listen, anyway, Cleopatra is not a black person to perform, we will scold”, and the result also began to become a mutual spray mode.
Some people expressed angrily whether this group of blacks had never gone to school. Who told you that Africans = blacks?
Who told you that Cleopatra is black?
After the black people have made trouble, although the limelight has passed, it does not rule out that Cleopatra’s movies will indeed be starred by a black person in the future.
Therefore, now everyone does not need to be too concerned about the media’s views and evaluations of new film and television works.
Because that standard line has changed, meaningless things have been added.
