    I get it, you are not discussing the movie you are going off topic to rant about Hollywood and the culture war. That you think what youíre posting is somehow Germaine to Space Jam 2 reinforces my point: you see culture war nonsense to get worked up about in everything.

    Which is why I called it out. But you and your ilk somehow think your opinions should be immune to criticism. You can criticize this movie all you want, but Heaven forbid someone have an opinion on your opinionÖ

    Doesnít appear to be much worse than the original.
    Itís also the fact that it took $162 million to make this abject trash. Space Jam 1 cost $80 million (and grossed $250 million) so I guess thatís not terribly better. But at least they had Bill Murray.

    Are movies even rated the same way? There's been a 25 year gap and the internet makes it easier for the audience to vote on things.

    Ia that 63% from the original audience (probably teens-young adults and most likely not kids) or from the online version only, a decade or so after the movie was out?

    Yeah, that film benefited from Murray and leaned hard into the Looney Tunes. This one just stuffed every WB character they could into a film, gave the Looney Tunes very little to work with comedically, tried to force a heartfelt plot out of father-son storyline and then expected a professional athlete to act his way out of it.

    The original was hardly high art, but at least it kept things simple, it knew what it was and it was occasionally funny. I think I laughed once at the Michael B. Jordan cameo and otherwise was completely straight-faced the whole time.

    I don't think the original was that good either.

    Honestly, I think he only did the first one because it had Mike, and Murry is such a big Chicago sports guy, that he couldn't say no to working with mike.

Everything has to meet a handful of checkboxes, agendas and diversity quotas. Its gotten so bad/political in media that even lifelong/oldschool liberals like Maher recently ripped into the cancel culture aspects. You could be making a movie about life as a farmer in ancient china and people will complain about the lack of diversity, forcing people to apologize and watching them then apologize is beyond cringe. Its steeped into gaming too but thats the least of that communities problems.


    As for who does that stuff, theres actually a sizable community thats into doing weird **** like furry ****ing. But in my experience those are the ones who are fat anyways and would approve of a frumpy bunny.
    You havenít watched Invincible I take it. Best super hero comic to cartoon ever IMO.

    Great timing really.

    Kids movie, not that great many out there now, reopening of cinemas etc.
    Don't have the data but I would imagine most films coming out now would do better than initially projected, at least in locations where reopening is a thing.

    Still sucks of course. Marketable doesn't mean good. Look at the Knicks over 20 years

    Is Space Jam 2 breaking box office records? I haven't seen that, they were #1 on opening weekend but after that it doesn't seem like it's a massive hit. It's Rotten Tomatoes critics score is also dropping, I think it's now at like 28%.
