Who Is Kathy?

So here's my latest design and here's my question: Who is Kathy?


"But it's JUST a movie." "This isn't about the movie."

In case you're wondering why this blog isn't devoting space to the new Star Wars movie (pun very much intended), it's because I don't consider either The Rise of Pando Lando's Real Doll or that atrocity called The Last Mary Poppins In Space to be Star Wars movies. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

Needless to say, this is obviously just my opinion, but something fishy has been going on in blockbuster movie town that I can't quite put my finger on. I wish to show them the finger, though, but I'm a gentleman so I won't. I just want them all to go find their own little black hole and get sucked into it. (Yes, that one.) Hollywood seems to have turned into a bunch of PC tree hugging social justice fetishists that are very much opposed to 1) good writing, 2) okay writing 3) respecting the source material that allowed them to have their current jobs in the first place, and 4) white men (and I'm not a white man for crying out loud nor should that even matter, which it doesn't).

I'm so fed up with this SJW nonsense and people walking on eggshells 24/7. What's happening to the world? When did the human species become so sensitive?

Have a nice day.

Blue

  1. There are certain people they oppose all right.
    Pandosexual - what the heck does that even mean? He wants to have sex with everything on Pandora? And for the record, I saw the movie, and I didn't see any of that! Sure he likes capes and is flamboyant. Doesn't anyone remember the 70's films? Or I'm Gonna Get You Sucka for that matter? The dude is not into his robot.
    And it was actually more enjoyable than I expected. It grew on me. Still not nearly as good as Rogue One though.

    1. Exactly. So why does Disney insist he is and does that new actor insist Lando is pansexual, as if that's a big deal? Who cares if Chewie is pansexual or Lansexual or asexual? This is Star Wars for heaven's sake. What's with these frigging agendas? Agendas first, good story-telling, well, who cares? This is the most expensive SW movie to date and we fans settle for okay? Man, the bar sure has lowered. This movie felt like a product.

      Well maybe it's this Pandora

    3. Well, we know Chewie has a wife and child from the Star Wars Holiday Special, but dear Lord, no one wants to reference that piece of garbage!
      Most that stuff - what does it matter? It doesn't and doesn't need to be addressed, certainly not over the story itself.
      They really spent the most money on this one? Like to know where it all went...

      Delete
    4. @Adam - That must be it.
      @Alex - Oh darn, you said Holiday Special... :) You know, Alex, people keep telling me, "It's only a movie. Who cares if Leia can breathe in outer space? Who cares if Snooke's an idiot? Who cares if Rey's a Mary Sue? Who cares if Luke's milking a space cow and tosses his lightsaber over his shoulder? It's only a movie. Who cares if SJW agendas come first? It's a movie." Is it only a movie?

  2. Ugg is all I can say
    But I'll say more as I stay
    For it has all gone to crap
    Can't offend each silly old sap
    Have to force shit in
    Then it's considered a win
    It makes the story more flat
    But we have to represent this, they, those and that
    If not, we are so so so bad
    It will make crybabies mad
    And so onward it goes
    The PC craze only grows
    Instead of natural and what needs to be
    We get things on which I won't even pee

      Who would've thought such a thing?

    2. Let them slap

    3. Fans are trying to throw them off a cliff
      That SJW shit's worse than good ole Biff
      Though his manure may do the trick
      May even stick or they can eat a brick
      Kathleen Kennedy's going down
      Acting like a whino clown
      "The Force is female!" by butt
      Go get stuck in a rut
      SW is for everyone
      Who likes a bit of fun
      Now it's an agenda driven piece of junk
      Close to that big ship that sunk
      Droid rights, Pando Lando, Mary Sue
      Won't ever beat Scooby Doo
      They can sniff a blue suede shoe
      Sure, let Luke milk a space cow and act dumb
      I bet that makes Darth Kathy um... come.
      Yikes! I don't even want to know
      And the Blue guy show,
      But I said it, and I'll say it again:
      That woman's afraid of men.

  3. The world seems to be full of SJW's. I can't even stand these ridiculous acronyms for E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-NG.

    Since I was born inappropriate I find I can offend these sorts without even trying! Bonus.

  4. I saw it..wasn't expecting much from it.. was surprised when it didn't suck and based on that, decided it was ok lol. But that's not a new thing. I think movie makers just wouldn't know a good story if it hit them in the face.

  5. Just being involved with comic books in particular and pop culture in general all my life, I knew all the basic plot points of the first three Star Wars films (aka Episodes 4-6) without ever seeing any of them all of the way through. (I still haven't.) The first SW flick I ever saw completely was Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so I guess I just don't have the emotional investment in the entire series that most SW fans do. I can't get into the whole outrage thing. Maybe I'm luckier for that.

    And of course you're not a white man. You're blue!

    1. You are definitely luckier for that. Imagine your favorite comic book hero suddenly being made a fool of by SJWs and people who don't know a thing about quality writing and clearly don't care about "their product".

      Yes, I'm blue.
      24/7, too.

      THank you for stopping by, Mr. Silver Fox.

    2. Heh. I actually had to look up "SJW." I'd heard of such people, I just never encountered the term referred to by its initials.

      It's always a bit disconcerting when a period piece or something otherwise totally removed from the "here and now" inflicts modern-day sensibilities upon the audience. That's the one thing that bothered me about MASH (the TV show, more than the movie), the 1970s/1980s attitudes in 1950s characters. I hear Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman was the same way.

      Anyway, you're so right about changes in comic characters. They're constantly changing things about characters nowadays. They even change the characters' histories whenever they feel like it. I'm so glad I don't follow the new stuff. Now, if someone says "Hey, did you know Batman is now a trans-gender Nazi?" I can reply "Not in the stories I read."

      I suppose it's nowhere near as easy to ignore annoying or outrageous plot points, characterizations, etc. in a movie franchise with only a handful of installments, as opposed to comic characters with dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of stories to choose from.

    3. It turns out that the two directors who had already shot 80% of the new Han Solo movie were fired because they'd made fun of a female droid by turning her into a SJW parody, and the new head of Lucas Film, Kathleen Turner, was not amused.

      Exactly, MASH felt like it took pace in the 1970s. I remember as a kid watching some episodes and not believing I was watching something taking place in the 1950s. At the time I couldn't put my finger on it being a kid, but in hindsight I know that's what was off about MASH.

      In my book changing a character's history is blasphemy. I'm also not a fan (to put it mildly) of ten thousand parallel universes. Maybe it's too much for my brain to handle.

  6. Hi Blue,

    I haven’t seen the movie but, when I do I will let you know what I think. The world and entertainment business is changing. Everyone is afraid of offending someone. We live in a walk on eggshell society thats not all it’s cracked up to be!

    Remember you are part of a wonderful species, in fact you are the only one of your kind!

    Smile Blue!

    2. Ok, sorry. I get it SJW. Yes, now in re-reading your post I understand. All this puts me in mind of a movie with Sandra Bullock and Sylvester Stallone where Sandra played a female cop by the name of Lenina Huxley. It's what our world will end up being if we don't get a rein on finding everything offensive and Taco Bell wins the restaurant wars (although I am not totally opposed to that)!

      Wait a minute... you were 5 in 1984 and you saw that eye scene???? Say it ain't so!

      Hmmmmm I was 14 in 1984 and you were 5. So now I feel really old.

  11. More PC and more tolerant of things we shouldn't be. I can't remember the last time I turned on pop radio and there was a song with lyrics I didn't mind my 10-year-old listening to without internally cringing. That's another story for another day, but your movie opinions reminded me of it just the same. Have a good day, Blue. :)
