Overboard 2018
« on: April 30, 2018, 07:47:04 pm »
I will never, ever see this film.  To me, it's everything wrong with the industry today.  They are exactly (not essentially) doing the exact same script except swapping the gender of every single character in the original.  If someone wants to see this obvious pile of shit and post about it feel free. 

Release date is May 4.  As of now, there are no reviews because people would rather commit suicide than see this catastrophe.  Here is the vomit-inducing trailer...

Remakes - especially remakes with clear agendas - can never be completely harmless.

What exactly is the agenda here, though?  Are you so easily offended at gender roles being switched in a dumb remake of a dumb 80s comedy?  It's one thing to say "this looks unfunny, and I don't want to see it", but y'all are seriously getting offended over nothing.  Seriously, y'all would be weak ass women if y'all changed genders, lol.

When did I ever say I was offended?
Gender-swapped remakes are just another excuse for Hollywood to be able to get away with uncreative films.  They're using the demand for more feminist ideals to support they're lack of original ideas, instead of using that demand to just make original feminist films, which I would obviously support.

Lol, you said these films "with agendas" were harmful.  There's nothing harmful about dumb remakes of comedies.  These things have existed for years and the quality of filmmaking hasn't changed at all.  And you seriously are bringing up "lack of original ideas" right now?  There's been a shit ton of creative and fun ideas in films every year.  But you just want to focus on studio films like this to present a problem that has existed as long as film has.  There will always be bad movies and there will always be good movies.  This remake changes absolutely nothing.  Watch films you want to. This is exactly like kids saying that "music today sucks" and only listen to the biggest pop hits right now.

And for the record, you are offended, cuz.

And I have protested the quality of films as long as I have cared enough to express my opinions on the Hollywood machine, just as most people who are passionate about film have.  I don't know if you actually believe that films like this aren't detrimental to the world of cinema or if you're just arguing for the sake of arguing, but you sound about as retarded as Dom Cobb right now.

What are you even on about?.  These are industry films that will be outputted.  They have a market that keeps on paying.
The film industry isn't supposed to bow to your ideas of "good" films.  These films have existed back in the 80s and filmmaking hasn't declined at all.  Wtf are you even on about.  There will ALWAYS be good releases.  This film isn't any more 'detrimental' than the MCU, which is a product of the "Hollywood machine" that you still support.

The agenda here is to do an exact remake of a relatively popular (more cult popular) film and completely flip the genders thereby giving the female power over the male in this instance.

Most of these one-off remakes of popular films (not sequels or off-shoots or mechanism change, but straight-up remakes) that aren't related to superhero universes have done poorly.  Feigbusters, Mag 7, Ben-Hur, Poltergeist, Nighmare on Elm Street, Arthur, Annie, Psycho etc have all either completely bombed, failed, or barely broke even.  When they do off-shoots like Jumanji 2 or sequels like Fury Road, you have a legit chance.  But many movie-goers (including me) are rejecting this onslaught of straight-up remakes of one-off films where they basically just redo the original.  It's even worse when they try to gender swap or race swap - for instance, Feigbusters, Annie, Ocho Eleven, and this Overboard.  Now they are not only lazily shoving a re-wrapped inferior clone of an original down our throat, but they are also trying to shove some sort of agenda down our throats as well.  Some people are fine with it.  I am not.  And I just won't see any of these films.

Ocean's 8 is a sequel/spin-off.  It's connected to the other films.

I'm just sitting here trying to understand how a gender switch is somehow agenda based?  I sorta understood how Ghostbusters was bad because they used the feminism card (only after the severe male backlash, though), but this is harmless. Have you even watched the trailer you posted?  Again, it's one thing to not support a film because it's a remake, but I find you guys acting like this film and other "remakes" are somehow ruining the movie industry to be a bit overboard.

I feel the same way about this as I do about the whole Oreos-endorsing-gay-rights thing. It's just a company going with the prevailing social winds-- no big deal. Artistically, it's no worse than the Ben Hur remake (which still makes it pretty terrible). What does irritate me is when people act like these stupid films have strong feminist messages, when they're dumb corporate products and there are so many other, better films with interesting female characters.

I have watched it.  They are basically attempting to remake the exact same film but with the woman making the man a slave.  If you don't see an agenda there in this extreme age of feminism and SJW pandering, then I don't know what to tell you.

Fair enough I stand corrected.  Initially this was not going to be the case.  Perhaps they saw what happened to Feigbusters and decided to go the right direction.
