James Cameron Hates ‘Wonder Woman’
James Cameron Hates ‘Wonder Woman’

 

James Cameron is like a smarter Michael Bay and you know all of his movies. One of them is probably your favorite. I don’t need to list them all here. But this why we’re here: he sat down for an interview with The Guardian and dared to have an opinion on Wonder Woman. Silly, James. You know old white men aren’t allowed to have opinions anymore lol.

“All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided. She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing! I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards. Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, [the benefit of characters like Sarah] is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!”

It’s 2017, so the first you have to do if you disagree with this is to call James Cameron a sexist or a misogynist, then if you can, dig up bad things he said or did 10-20 years ago, so you can adequately attack the messenger to absolve yourself from having an actual, articulated argument against his message, while also allowing yourself to amass several woke points. It’s a tactic that’s really big on Facebook and Twitter. Is Wonder Woman a good movie? Yes. Does James Cameron have a point? Also yes. Did Wonder Woman look super hot in slo-mo while killing Germans? Yes. Was Steve Trevor the one who actually saved the day? Yes. Was Wonder Woman’s fight at the end of the movie utterly pointless? Also yes. A simple critique of a movie isn’t shitting on the movie. Unless it’s the pile of shit that was the Ghostbusters remake. Y’all really caped for that, huh? Anyway, for Warner Bros. and DC, Wonder Woman represents that single punch McGregor is gonna land against Mayweather if McGregor is Warner Bros. and DC and Mayweather is Marvel in this scenario. The fact that Patty Jenkins made a good film with these idiots should be enough to convince anybody that Hollywood needs more women directors. She also gave a response to James Cameron, but Jenkins must have missed all the feminist takes crying about why Wonder Woman had to be attractive because of “representation”. The lesson here? Just don’t say shit. Don’t say anything. Don’t have an opinion about anything. Happy Friday!

Avatar Will Be The Highest Grossing Film Of All Time

As of Saturday, James Cameron’s Avatar only needed $47,991,188 to overtake his own Titanic to become the highest-grossing domestic film of all time, so by the time you read this, America will have made a movie about a paraplegic Marine’s love affair with a CGI blue alien with ghetto braids the Mt. Everest of box office receipts. E! Online reports:

Cameron’s unstoppable Avatar hit $1.29 billion at the international box office, Fox said today, passing Cameron’s Titanic mark of $1.24 billion to set the new record. By Monday, the studio estimates, Avatar will top Titanic’s worldwide gross of $1.848 billion to become Earth’s biggest money-maker of all-time. And, no, the film is not stopping there. Within a week to a week-and-a-half, Fox guestimated, the 3D- and IMAX-powered Avatar should swipe Titanic’s last remaining major record: all-time domestic champ. Avatar, which grossed $36 million domestically Friday-Sunday, and, oh, by the way, led the box office for a sixth straight weekend, is now at $552.8 million on that ledger. On Saturday, it blew past The Dark Knight for second place on the domestic list. Titanic’s once-believed unbeatable $600.8 million will be the next to go. Rose and Jack, we hardly knew ye. “Milestones like this are great,” calm and composed Fox exec Chris Aronson said today. “It’s part of an amazing ride the film has taken us on. [But] this film is still just captivating audieces on global basis.” So, to answer the question, you celebrate becoming the world’s No. 1 film after you’re finished being the world’s No. 1 film.
