Brie Larson: 'I Don’t Want to Hear What a White Man Has to Say...'
Captain Marvel was one of my more favorite graphics novels in recent years. I'm looking forward to the movie. The question is does it go the way of Wonder Woman or Ghostbusters (see Of Course! Angry Liberal Film Critics are Upset ‘Wonder Woman’ isn’t Feminist Enough and Jackass Judd Apatow Shames ‘Ghostbusters’ Critics by… Calling them ‘Trump-Supporters’?). One was a compelling action movie with a strong female lead and great writing. The other was an excuse for progressive filmmakers to impress other progressives over how woke they are. Where they cherry-picked a few dumbass comments to dismiss anyone who just thought the movie was bad. Judging by these recent comments by Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, I think we might be looking at the latter more than the former.
I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle in Time. It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I am not. What I am saying is if you make a movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie, and review your movie.
I actually agree with her somewhat. There should be more diverse voices in entertainment writing. Like from people who aren't left-wing social justice martyrs, and who just want to be entertained by stories and not have their every motive questioned for thinking a movie is terrible. Seriously, does Larson really not think there is a wealth of movie reviewers that fall into the categories in which she's looking? Let me introduce you to social media. And 99.86% of movie websites.
If your movie isn't bad, it doesn't matter if a 40-year-old white dude wrote a review of it. Or a bi-racial transgender vegan. Take a look at the movie Creed. I'm going to go on a limb and say that Michael B. Jordan got more than a few ignorant comments about being black Rocky. Yet they never made it part of the marketing for the movie. Because they knew their story didn't suck. Same with Luke Cage on Netflix. Both I'm sure had their fair share of bad reviews. Some of them from incels living in their mother's basement. It didn't matter.
If you want to watch movies just looking to have your worldview validated, it's your $20. $27.50 if you get the big tub of popcorn.
But stop treating people as less than just because they think the movie is dumb.
