The Disney+ thread of ever-growing entertainment monopolies

I desperately hope the She Hulk show is largely an overwrought court procedural with little to no superheroing going on beyond the superheroing that leads to an overwrought court procedural

The movie itself was also pretty bad, apparently.

They apparently scrubbed clean any trans analogue present in the original animated film.

(Why did babby Gaer love Mulan so much??? The world will never know.)

The 4th wall better take a beating.
 
Really, really bad.
I just assumed from a million miles away that a movie about Chinese culture, made by Disney, produced, directed, and written almost exclusively by white people, would be amazing and culturally sensitive and authentic. I'm shocked, SHOCKED that the movie would end up being awful in that regard. How could Hollywood do such a thing?? It's not like they have a history of... oh...

Yes, and I made that post so I could share that video, which is several times more entertaining than the film

I know I quoted you, but it was not with the intent of directing my dissatisfaction in your direction for anything you did or said (or anyone else in these forums for that matter). Just using it as launching point to discuss my own lack of surprise that this movie is awful considering everything I said and how disappointing it is that 100+ years later, Hollywood is still doing *this* with Asian culture. And it'll keep doing this because as much as some of the industry has made strides towards ameliorating these kinds of issues, the majority of Americans/Hollywood can't even comprehend why something like this was bad in the first place because Asians/Asian-Americans are invisible in this country and nobody cares about racism and exploitation of us and our cultures.
