    Interesting video from The Critical Drinker.

    His thesis is basically this: movie antagonists used to be well-written, but nowadays they suffer from poor writing and the shoehorning in of identity politics.

    He makes an interesting comparison between Darth Vader and Kylo Ren.


    What do you think?

    I am so tired of politics. If I talk with a Republican the Evil Democrats are doing nothing right. The Democrats want to put Trump in jail. The last 20 years have me questioning whether I will go to the polls next election. I wanted to be part of the solutions when I stepped away from the kingdom hall.

    The entire industry has been swamped by woke bull shirt.

    SJWs ruin everything.

    Good video. I posted on another thread why I don't watch much of what Hollywood doles out anymore, but I never really thought it through at the level this video dives into. Well done.

    It is actually kind of amusing to watch how Hollywood is slowly destroying itself in this way.

    And the recent Golden Globes self-cancellation comes to mind as well.

    Bless you, Ricky Gervais.
