    Of course it's real. You and I can conceive of it independently of each other, ergo it is "real." Like beauty, clean coal, or god's love.

    Spider Man: Far From Home. This movie was far from amaze-balls, but I'm glad I saw it in the theater and the 2nd half was infinitely better than the 1st. I had no idea who Mysterio was or anything about the plot but even I saw his turn coming. But on the whole it was entertaining and whenever it ends up on cable I'll watch it again.

    On the Ariel thing...it kind of threw me for a loop too when the casting was announced. I mean it isnt the end of the world or anything but if a month ago anyone asked you who did you think would be cast would any of you have said this person? No you would have thought a pale Redhead would be cast (or blonde if you go back to the original I believe) because that is who Ariel is in most of our heads.

    It doesnt warrant much more than a shrugging of the shoulders, but for now it does seem like a bit of a bizarre casting. By the time the film comes out though not so much. If she is good in the part it wont make a lick of difference. To the kids it wont matter at all.

    I think it's "bizarre" to the degree you think whiteness is important to the character. Older people are going to be hung up on the race. As you say, kids won't give a single f-ck.

    IMHO racism has gone through two successive phases:

    Racism 1.0: the races are ordered

    Racism 2.0: the races are separate but equal

    Post-racism is when people just don't give a sh-t at all. Think eye color or hair color. I think my daughter is there; her kids will certainly be there. See also: religion, sexuality, gender itself. Good riddance.

    Re: Movie Thread #50: Godzilla gives us permission to nuke our enemies

    I went to see Spider-Man at the Vali-Hi drive-in theater Saturday night. Spider-Man was fun, but the more remarkable thing to me was the drive-in.

    My buddies and I have been going there since we were in high school back in the 90s, and it's amazing how much that place has both changed and stayed the same. They've added extra Biffy toilets, and a few new things to their concessions stand, and then they had to upgrade to a DLP projector due to industry requirements. Other than that, the place is identical to what it had been some 25 years ago.

    The thing that most made an impact on me was how quickly the place fills up now. And people are coming prepared. It's no longer just lawn chairs and small grills, people where traveling with their big grills, inflatable beds, inflatable couches, etc., and various games. It was a full on party for a few hours before the move started, just a couple minutes after dusk. I think part of it is that almost all other theaters like that have closed around here, but they're still going strong. I recommend it to anybody with kids to do it at least once, or even just as a date like I did this weekend.

    Wow I didnt even know that place was still around. Very cool

    Kepler,

    I dont think the whiteness is important, but until now it kind of was part of the character. (like the Red Hair was once Disney made it) I dont think it really matters but I dont think it makes anyone racist to kind of go "huh, really?". (which is lightyears different than the Incel reaction) I mean they did that when Will Smith was cast as the Genie in Alladin and not cause he is Black but because the part is identified with Robin Williams.

    For the record it ranks about a 2 on my "Givesaphuck Meter" and I literally didnt care post just going "huh really?!". All I had to do was go back to being a kid when my sister watched that stupid movie every day for a summer and change one thing and the film was still the same. After that I didnt think about it again really. My GF had the same reaction I did and she is way more culturally sensitive than I am

    well...
    1) it is a make believe character
    2) and b, it is a make believe thing. mermaids don't exist.

    this is not like a colored dude being cast as abraham lincoln or a brown girl getting the role of jesus ().

    are we saying that white schools can't perform 'west side story' cause these are supposed to be puerto ricans? hmmm?

    I dont think you actually read what I posted.

    Wouldnt you say high schools are a little different than Hollywood? Terrible analogy.

    My reaction to this is no different than when Hollywood "White Washes" a character or casts Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. So am I racist against White People and Biased against Short Cultists as well?

    Oh man...I just visualized that. I would definitely see that film

    BTW I am not ripping Cruise as Reacher...it wasnt his fault the second movie was blah. I enjoyed the first one.
