Devil Mouse to cut up to 10,000 jobs

Disney appears to be a lot more likely to shut down Marvel Comics than anyone likely believes. They’ve already shut down Fox 2000, which produced more revenue from a single movie release than comic sales ever could:

Disney still hasn’t disclosed an official number of jobs they plan to cut. Analysts estimate 4,000-10,000, though several employees say the number being floated among people in the know is closer to 3,000….

One employee on the TV side told THR how disheartened the television employees were at witnessing the carnage in film, but later the ax began to fall there, as well, with 20th Television president Greg Meidel let go.

Disney also laid off Fox Consumer Products boss Jim Fielding, and sources say that of about 50 U.S.-based staffers in that division, five have received pink slips. “I’ve never seen anything like this — from any company,” says a Fox employee who witnessed Thursday’s drama.

Disney has said all along that it intends, due to the merger, to save $2 billion annually by 2021, and such rhetoric usually means jobs will be lost. “This is what happens in mergers,” explains Northlake Capital Management founder Steven Birenberg. “It’s partially the point, as cost savings boost the financials.”

It’s possible that the cost savings will be limited to the Fox acquisition, but in light of the multi-year decline in Marvel revenues combined with the budget imperative, it wouldn’t exactly be shocking to see them shut down the production and pursue a licensing strategy.

Cat ladies will love it!

You can’t make this stuff up. You really can’t. A “glowing review” of the forthcoming Captain Marvel movie:

Some initial #CaptainMarvel reactions:

1. Cat people will love this movie.
2. Several truly magnificent music moments for this 90s kid.
3. Carol’s hero moment was very cathartic/true to the female experience, imho.
4. The MCU feels more complete now that Carol is in it. ♥️

I suspect serious Marvel fans are going to hate this thing with a fury hotter than angry Star Wars fans contemplating the next entry in the Disney Wars movie franchise: Rose Tico: Poledancer: A STAR WARS Story.

When – not if, when – Arkhaven Studios begins making movies, I guarantee that they will not merely be better than this SJW nonsense, they will be vastly better despite having budgets that are two orders of magnitude lower.

Jumping the narrative

Nothing like getting your story written three weeks early.

Though it won’t hit theaters for another three weeks, Captain Marvel is already being review bombed on Rotten Tomatoes. These reviews aren’t from critics or journalists, but from angry impotent men flooding the audience reviews with their anger. What are they angry about? So many things!

Men are shouting from basements all across the land about Brie Larson, her feminism and liberal politics, how Captain Marvel is an SJW film, and ARG WOMEN I HATE THEM WHY WON’T THEY LOVE ME!? Sidebar: I still don’t get how “social justice warrior” is an insult? Like, those are all good qualities and it’s basically a superhero name. If anyone needs someone to write a Social Justice Warrior origin story, call me.

The point of this kind of review bombing campaign is to drag down the average audience rating to discourage folks from seeing the film. In some instances it works, like with 2016’s Ghostbusters, which suffered from massive downvoting of the trailer on YouTube, as well as a rush of one star IMDb reviews. The film even added a scene featuring the Ghostbusters reading nasty internet comments about themselves in a moment of meta-awareness.

The viciousness of this review bombing campaign is particularly noteworthy given that the bomb-to-be isn’t even reviewable on Rotten Tomatoes yet.

Everything is falling into place

Now Disney is destroying the Marvel Comic Universe:

I previously wrote how Brie Larson is a huge gamble for Disney and Kevin Feige – especially following the failure of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – and now the Captain Marvel movie looks to be in big, big trouble, unfortunately.

Back in January, following the NCAA trailer, it was reported that Captain Marvel was projected to have a massive $160 million opening weekend with some estimates even offering $180 million.

However, the bad news for Kevin Feige and Captain Marvel is that those projections have now dropped upwards of $80 million (note: article has been updated to reflect million and not percent), as it is reported the flick may only open around $100 million.

The latest projections come from Deadline, with the site offering Captain Marvel will now open in line with other Marvel origin films, but won’t come anywhere near Black Panther’s $202 million. Interestingly enough, further evidence Captain Marvel is not as highly regarded among fans comes from the fact that Black Panther supporters have not supported the Captain Marvel gofundme to get girls to go see the movie.

There is also a huge problem with Brie Larson who has been spinning Captain Marvel as a feminist movie, essentially isolating the audience, and she even recently came out against white males for some reason. I’m actually surprised and disappointed in Kevin Feige that he is allowing Larson to destroy the MCU audience, and that Disney and CEO Bob Iger haven’t learned anything from Star Wars.

It’s mildly amusing to observe that the media simply can’t grasp that Disney WANTS to destroy Star Wars and Marvel and everything else that appeals to white men. That’s why they acquired it in the first place.

The sickness of Spielberg

Owen Benjamin calls out Hollywood’s biggest monster. Arthur C. Clarke… so what are the odds. One 26-minute silent film and he’s handed a 7-year multi-million-dollar movie contract. Why? Because he demonstrated his ability to be subversive about his sickness in a subtle manner that did not alert the audience.

Krispin Glover, who refused to keep working for Spielberg, tried to warn everyone:

Does Steven Spielberg focus much of his fantasy life on young people? Did he portray children wallowing in sewers filled with fecal matter in Schindler’s List? Did he use children to finger paint an adult in Hook? Does he collect the illustrations of Norman Rockwell, such as the one showing a young boy in his underwear examined by a doctor? Are the inclinations of Steven Spielberg above suspicion by the media-fed culture? Was Steven Spielberg very friendly with Michael Jackson? Wasn’t Michael Jackson supposed to play Peter Pan in Steven Spielberg’s version of the story? Now that Michael Jackson is no longer held in favor by the mass media, does Spielberg associate with him? Do Michael Jackson and Steven Spielberg share similar opinions about the sexuality of young boys?

Another fake story out of Hollywood

I’m not even remotely surprised to hear that the latest feel-good movie about how we’re all the same under the skin is a complete fiction:

Green Book is a ‘culturally tone deaf’ portrayal of a friendship that never was.

It is a ‘shameful travesty’, inaccurate to the point of fiction that diminishes an exquisitely talented man and casts him as supporting actor in the story of his own life.

And for the movie to win an Oscar would be ‘a slap in the face for communities of color.’

This is the view of Dr Donald Shirley’s family, speaking out in the week that the movie, billed as a heartwarming tale of the unlikely friendship between the black pianist and an Italian American who was briefly his driver, is nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor and Supporting Actor.

The movie focuses on a tour of the segregated south undertaken by Shirley at the height of the Jim Crow era in 1962.

Written by Nick Vallelonga, it charts the supposed friendship that grew between Shirley and the screenwriter’s father Tony ‘Lip’ Vallelonga.

But today, in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV, Shirley’s last surviving brother, Maurice, 82, has slammed the movie, for which no family members were consulted, as ‘a symphony of lies.’

These movies are designed to make white people feel good about themselves. Which, of course, is why so many black people rightly despise them.

“damning evidence”

The question of Michael Jackson’s long-suspected pedophilia appears to have finally been settled by a new documentary released at Sundance yesterday:

Michael Jackson gave his young male victims jewelry in exchange for sexual acts, according to damning new documentary Leaving Neverland which details fresh allegations of sexual abuse against the singer.

The explosive four-hour film, which had its world premiere on Friday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, accuses The King of Pop of even staging a mock wedding complete with vows and a diamond ring with one boy, critics say. 

‘Among the many, many disturbing revelations of #LeavingNverland: MJ gave one of his young male victims jewelry in exchange for sexual acts, and even staged a mock wedding complete with vows and diamond ring,’ wrote Patrick Ryan of USA Today.

‘Many common parallels in victims’ stories: MJ grooming them to hate their parents and women in general, saying God brought them together, eventually ‘casting them out’ for younger boys. ‘There was a lot of jealousy and hurt. You were no longer special.” 

The film focuses on the accounts of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who have long claimed that they were raped and molested by the singer at his Neverland Ranch.

Jackson and Singer are just the tip of the iceberg. It is time for the President to appoint a special commission to investigate Hollywood and break the system of child abuse that pervades it.

Lavender Mafia fail

The Pink Neo-Palestinians of Hollywood tried, but ultimately failed, to kill the Bryan Singer expose, which was published yesterday in The Atlantic.

Statement from reporters Maximillian Potter and Alex French on investigation of Bryan Singer published in The Atlantic.

We have been asked why a story reported and written by two Esquire writers is being published in The Atlantic. This story began with our editors at Esquire. After months of reporting, the story went through Esquire‘s editorial process, which included fact-checking and vetting by a Hearst attorney, and the story was approved for publication. The story was then killed by Hearst executives. We do not know why. We feel fortunate that the piece has gone through The Atlantic‘s thoughtful editorial process, which included another rigorous fact-check and robust legal vetting. We are most grateful that the alleged victims now have a chance to be heard and we hope the substance of their allegations remains the focus.

Oh, I think we all know why Hearst killed the story. But the controlled burn of #MeToo has failed and the truth about the unmitigated, predatory evil of Hollywood is going to continue coming out.

CDAN takes a victory lap:

The long awaited expose about the disgraced A-list Director has finally arrived.  If you haven’t read it yet, I would recommend going through every single line.  This should completely end the director’s career. It is much worse than what was written to end other big Hollywood careers. The people who have worked at this for years said they had the goods on this guy, and they delivered more than any of us could have expected.  They just had to fight for a long time against very powerful and evil people to get the story out there.

The Singer story is about as bad as you’d expect, although the sheer scale and brazenness of his depredations may surprise the naive. The filth of Hollywood is almost beyond credibility and it is intimately connected to the intrinsic anti-Christianity of the industry.

Analyzing the Unauthorized Right

This imaginative interpretation of the Unauthorized Right as The Godfather is more than a little amusing, even if it betrays a near-complete failure to understand me or my motivations. But the comparison of Richard Spencer to Carlo Rizzi alone makes it worth reading:

10. Voxday = Hyman Roth

Hyman Roth is nothing if not intelligent, and Vox Day claims to be high-IQ himself. (He does lack Roth’s modesty even if false.) Also, like Hyman Roth, Vox Day goes for the Big Picture. With background in science-fiction, his thought processes are more analytical than that of Richard Spencer. Spencer’s idea of Sci-Fi is STAR WARS, and he gets all excited like Captain Kirk on STAR TREK. Vox Day almost never shows his emotions even when he’s clearly upset about something. He has an air of Zen about him, sometimes talking like a robot or Dr. Spock. In the exasperating debate with Andrew Anglin, he kept his cool while Anglin’s emotions were all over the map. Hyman Roth also almost never shows his emotions, though his fury surfaced momentarily when provoked by Michael Corleone.

Despite his calm demeanor, Roth is a fierce character who, upon forming a grudge, just can’t let it go. Despite his diplomatic ways with Michael Corleone, he can’t never let go of the fact that Moe Greene, almost like a son to him(and fellow Tribesman), was killed by the Corleones. So, Roth is sworn to the destruction of Michael Corleone no matter how long it takes and how much it costs.

This obsessive side of Roth can be seen in Vox Day too, especially in his near-maniacal agenda to destroy Jordan Peterson. Most people are take-it-or-leave-it on the matter of Peterson, but Vox Day reacted to Peterson as if the Canadian superstar violated some fundamental principle of the universe. Thus, Peterson isn’t just a bad guy or charlatan but an evil scientist or grand sorcerer of sci-fi or fantasy novels who must be utterly defeated. Vox Day’s war on Peterson isn’t merely over ideas or issues of character. Peterson obviously triggered Vox Day in a way that most people simply can’t fathom. Vox Day took it personally(even though the two men never met) because Vox Day has his own grand theory of the world. As Peterson’s worldview is so at odds with Vox Day’s own, it’s like a gangster turf war among philosophers.

Now, why would Vox Day be so upset with Peterson in particular when, surely, there are so many other thinkers Vox Day disagrees with? It’s because Jordan Peterson has been promoted by the media as a ‘man of the right’ who stands up to Political Correctness. Being Anti-PC is the battle flag of the Alt Right, and for Vox Day, that means only true Alt Rightists should carry the banner. But there is Jordan Peterson propped up by the powers-that-be as a courageous member of the ‘Intellectual Dark Web’ when, from Vox Day’s perspective, the man is nothing but just another Establishmentarian shill. Most people can just ignore Jordan Peterson and focus on something else, but Vox Day can’t let it go. He feels he must carry on with the anti-Peterson crusade until Peterson’s reputation is utterly destroyed(at least in Alt Right circles in which Vox Day has not insignificant influence).

The fact that I am a Christian and a nationalist while Jordan Peterson is a Fake Right globalist occultist playing Pied Piper would appear have escaped the author. I don’t take Jordan Peterson’s existence or his philosophy personally at all. And I get a little tired of the relentless attempts to discredit and disqualify with the “claims” game in reference to easily verified matters of fact. But it’s a clever and entertaining article nevertheless.
