buzz light year bombed? it didn’t consistently try to shove that part in your face, it was a non issue honestly and barely took up any screen time
They never do...i havent seen buzzlight year but in Enternals, all the gay character said was that he didnt want to risk being killed because he loved his husband.

Thats it. That is literally whats triggering these folks that gets so mad to see anything but white straight men in a movie.

It almost seems like conservatives ARE the cancel culture they constantly complain about 🤣

if having a trans person in a movie gets you riled up there’s probably something wrong with YOU not the movie

No. It's not. Read the article....

Batgirl's screenplay was by Christina Hodson, the British writer of ultra-feminist film Birds Of Prey, accused by one critic of 'hating on men — all men . . . [and] dull to the point of numbing'.

Batgirl also featured a transgender character, Alysia Yeoh, Barbara Gordon's flatmate, played by the trans actor Ivory Aquino.

The appearance, critics say, is of a film putting its 'progressive' values ahead of all other concerns.

And not for the first time. Superhero films — normally somewhere audiences might go to escape our era's endless culture wars — have increasingly become major repositories of wokery.

In 2021, Marvel's mega-budget movie Eternals — starring Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington and Richard Madden — was panned by fans and critics alike as dull and preachy. It included Marvel's first gay superhero and its first deaf one.

Lightyear, a spin-off from Pixar's celebrated Toy Story film series, was expected to be one of the biggest movies of this summer. Instead, it bombed.

Critics complained that it substituted liberal virtue-signalling — Buzz Lightyear's commanding officer is a black lesbian and the film features the first same-sex kiss in a Pixar production — for the simple, unpoliticised joys of the original movies.


Ah, so it's the representation that they hate. Got it.

This is your logic "It bombed because it had a black lesbian in the movie".

Do you seriously not see your flawed logic?


It bombed because no one cared about a Buzz Lightyear movie that was about the "real" Buzz Lightyear and not the toy played by Tim Allen, lol. It was just not a great concept.

Are you ever NOT a massive cringe lord? jfc bro.

you’re narrative about movies bombing because they are “woke” is just some bullshit red hat, Joe Rogan Experience level, fanboy, otaku style horseshit. They were just bad movies. Period.

they bombed because it was lazy writing with dull plots, tepid acting and an over-reliance on poor CGI that made the movies flat and one dimensional. They failed on the fundementals of cinematography and film making, not because of a barely there liberal plot line.

fuckin nerd.

Yes it is ranked 22 out of 23 movies released by Pixar going by domestic gross.

I would call that a bomb especially for an established IP with name recognition.


Most of the Pixar movies after the Disney acquisition, particularly those post-Lassiter, have been pretty damn bad. They only had two movies in the top ten after Lassiter and both of those had been in development while he was at Pixar.

hth.

uhhh…I quoted your post where you went on a rant citing how the wokeness of movies was causing them to bomb.

you weird ass fuck.
I didn't go on a rant. All that was copied and pasted from The Daily Mail article. Goddamn you're dumb.
