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.
