For the last few days.I been hearing that Disney is looking to sell off some of the popperties just to stay afloat. Now we all know that Bob Iger went on a major spending spree doing the last few years during his first time is Disney's CEO & was not seeming to care about the state that Disney was at that time. I think that Disney should sell off Lucasfilm
Now that we seen the damage is done to the Star Wars franchise & seen the trilogy that Disney done. Only made about $4.5 Billion in ticket sale & most of the merchandise fail to epic proportions. Make me wonder if Disney has break even on what they paid for in the first place?
To me this is a both good & bad sign on the most famous franchise in the world. Let's start with the good side of things. If disney dose sell the franchise to another studio & fix the problems that Disney did to this PopCulture Icon. I can see the next owner not making the same mistakes as Disney did.
Yet we have no idea on what studios, business group or person's name that are looking to buy Star Wars as of now & I hope that they don't push for some kind of political or religious messages in the films. To me I will still be open to anyone that is going to buy Lucasfilm from Disney & do wish them the best of luck to new films that they put out after they buy Lucasfilm & hopefully make the best movies possible for the world to see.
I do have some fear that we may not see any movement for months or years from now & that is main problem that I have right now. To me this is a bad sign that we will never see the original 3 films that George Lucas had plan out for his sequel films. Now I really do hope that we will try to see the plan that George had already done to make into a trilogy & have it to be thrown away for the films that we got.
As we wait to see one who will the new owner of Lucasfilm. I will still be a fan of the great films that I grow up on. Plus I have some love for Indiana Jones which has its ups & downs from movie to movie. I can't forget the other film that Lucasfilm made. I mean it is a great part of many people childhood.
We all can wait to see the future that Lucasfilm has for us in the years to come. It just sad that any big name company to the dark side. I wish the best of luck to all the employees that are working for Lucasfilm.
Man the news about E3 2013 is not that good. We all should know by now that E3 has been completely cancelled do to the fact that most of the big named game companies will not show up this year for whatever reason.
I was not that shocked that it was not going to happen this year. Yet it was. To me these is just another blow that E3 is not that mainstream event that It once was. I just think that E3 is an out of date relic that was going to be thing of the past very soon.
Do i think it will ever come back in the future? No. With so many of game companies doing their own mini event throughout the year & can do it on a much cheaper budget. E3 was just on life support & with current technology to just put on a show on the internet. Companies just come to a decision to make there own show case. They can just do things better on a cheaper budget without risking a total failure.
With all the talk about the trail with Johnny Depp & Amber Heard getting very heated. I been thinking that is her chases of getting work after the fact she may of lied to the courts & the public. Now I don't think that she will lose too much at first. I'm just talking about in the future.
Personally I have not paid too much of my time into the whole thing. From what I have gotten from over the years & the ones that are talking about it. I do think that Johnny is not the monster that Amber & the media are pretending that he is? I do thing that there is more than enuff information that is out their. That Aber is not telling us the whole story & not a good person.
Now I can't say that I know any the things that I'm saying to the world. This is just a small opinion that has little weight to it & can't be proven at all. So I do think that we can just just let the court do it's thing & hope that the right judgment is given to the parties that are involved in the trail.
I don't like to see anyone that has great talent just to throw it away over a lie & be hurt by their own actions for years to come. That is just wrong anyone to do in the first place. I just feel that the lies that one person starts to spared for their own sick gains & then found out that they can't work again do to their greed.
While I thinking about this case. I know that we can't trust them for long period of time. Knowing that going down this road is a very steep downhill trap. It's hard to be supportive to not just to the person that did the evil actions & hard to believe those that are in a bad spot in their life. So this case a reminder to anyone that thinks they can do anything that they like & get away with it.
Over the past few days Elon Musk buys twitter & now we are see people leave the platform. Do the fact that Elon loves to promote Freedom of speech for all sides of the debate. Now I don't seem to care that a man that is trying to level the playing field.
It just seems that only one side that thinks their in the right & can't seem to take the descending opinions that will be challenging them in the future. For far too long then been protected by the Hiveminds at twitter & now then must live in the real world.
The thing that I like to see. if they can do it. Maybe get unblocked by people that weak-minded people that just block you for no real reason. That will be nice to see happen.
This was a good play by Elon to do & now we can have true freedom on this platform.
It seems to me that we can't go a month or so without a site making a claim of some kind of cultural appropriation. Now I don't seem to get the claims that people are making? We all like to explore new places & see do things.
Now I know that movies, arts & video games are always going to be the target of cultural appropriation & it seems to me that some people are just so hurt. That they are stealing from others cultures & making money off their culture.
This is just a stupid argument to begin with. Look it films like Star wars & all the cultures that it had to had to take from just to it feel like a full universe? I'm not that shocked that most of the species are based off some part of the world's culture or history.
Some of this people have been losing their minds for years & have gotten nowhere on there stance. As normal people have just move on with the real world.
You know if we can't used other people's culture for inspiration on a story for a character. Then when why should we have to do so much research just to make sure people are getting look & feel right in the some of these period piece. Can we just enjoy some good entertainment?
For the last few months I been thinking about this & now I think it's time to say it. Over the last many years there the culture war been raging on for controle on what is aloud to in entertainment & what is not should be in it at all.
The most of the fighting has been over on "Who has the right to play what part in what movie" or "They don't fit the character at all. Recast them now." To me this is proof that some people are just so weak that they hate the real world.
I just think that some people are sick they think that a support a movie that bomb in the theaters & will shit on a good movie with a character with Autism. Where is the common sense in some of the fool that reviewing the films that is ok hate people with disabilities.
With the recent release of GhostBusters: Afterlife & Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City are the reason that I don't full trust of Hollywood. First Ghostbusters: Afterlife is a good way to show love to all the fans that loyal to the franchises. I grow up on Ghostbusters & was happy that we finally got the third installment that was overdue. As for Resident Evil. The trailer looked like shit & I don't plan on to watch any time soon.
Something really did catch my eye & others about Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City that was very easy to see if you just look at the cast. Most of the them have been change so people can see themselves in the movie. Just like in The Eternals.
You don't need to change a thing a about a character that been around for decades just please small group of people that will never support you in the first place. Yet we continue to give to demanes that they make.
Little as we they keep asking for more & more. Here is an idea. Just make what sells & go from there. The way that I see indie market mix as of now, but I that if the way Hollywood is going. It may may git a bit of a boom in the near future
This past weekend we had are first convention of 2022 & it was at hit with both vendors & those that attended it. As a local that made there mind up a bit late, but still got to go & have some fun. It was very nice to see that the demand for conventions are still in full blast.
Now I can't say much about this convention since it's a new to Oklahoma & it was a the first years that it took place. I can say that it was the level of guest that was there shows that owner of the shows knows how to put on a good event for the fans of anime.
Can this event continuities for the local area that surround it? Yeah It can. If they play their cards right. If they don't give in to the people that don't grave it ate to the convention seen & think that very thing is ok for all the wrong reasons. Then it will be just fine.
We all know that any convention can live on for long period of time if they keep up the good work & don't listen to non customers that will never come to the event in the first place. Will I continue to go & support OkiCon? Sure. If they take the feedback & improve from what didn't work on this years event & make shore that will not happen in next years event.
All in all. I think that this a nice good first year event that could of had better planning, but it was still nice to see a new event to Oklahoma & just wish it was in the spring. Not in winter.
