“Netflix is laying off, and most of the layoffs were employees who seemingly identified as “activists” working on shows and media for “marginalized people.” Is Netflix using the downturn in their fortune to jettison some truly annoying people that could cost them money in the long run? We’ve seen this before at other companies…”

“Viewer Question:
Darryl Meyers Drew – It looks like the Axe Of Zaslav cuts so deeply it even transcends time and space. Not only is the guy shutting down and killing underperforming and bad projects, he’s also holding execs accountable for past mistakes at the company. Just read that he grilled movie execs at WB over Clint Eastwood’s El Macho since it was obvious that movie would lose the studio money. Do you think that was harsh of him?”

FilmThreat.com found a huge audience online and was named one of the top five movie web sites by the Wall Street Journal. Chris has appeared as a film expert on MSNBC, E!, CNN, Travel Channel, and Reelz Channel. Chis has also hosted shows on FX, Starz, IFC and G4TV’s Attack of the Show as the show’s film expert.

“The streaming bubble is bursting, and Hollywood is going to look very different after the dust clears. Layoffs at Netflix and Warner Bros. will catch many off guard, and this is just the beginning. Ricky Gervais probably finds this all VERY amusing right now.”

This has been predictable for a long, long time…They cant keep bleeding money forever.

“Elon Musk is slowing down the acquisition of Twitter to verify the number of fake accounts on the platform. Twitter said it’s less than 5% of active accounts, but everybody knows just how fake and phony Twitter can be. Is Space Daddy looking to get a better deal, send a message, or stick it to problematic Twitter employees? Who knows, but he still seems committed to buy.”

Yes!…Make Twitter prove its true economic worth!…

…Who knows what all they’re lying about, when they lie so easily…so fluidly…without a care.

Maybe Elon can get it for half his current offer…No need to waste money.

“Police body cam footage has been released of Ezra Miller getting arrested in Hawaii, and it’s INSANE! Miller is combative and demanding the officers give they/them their badge numbers, claims the man he attacked was a “yahtzi” and that he’s regularly assaulted over NFT art, and other meme-able nuggets. Clearly Miller needs mental help.”

“The MCU has a “director problem” according to Rolling Stone. Yes, they either have their hands tied by Disney… or they just quit. And it’ll likely get worse going forward. We talk about how Sam Raimi got nerfed in Doctor Strange 2, and how Jon Watts quit Fantastic Four.”

Doctor Strange 2, in my judgement, was a perfectly enjoyable, good movie.

I saw nothing wrong with this movie, at all…In fact, it has two super cute boys in it!…and this MCU movie isn’t all about the big tropes…

It’s good that the Red Witch is given a very personal motive…They went micro and nuanced, which makes it all the more unique, differentiated and interesting…This isn’t just the same old boilerplate crap.

Disney CANCELS Fred Savage! FIRED from The Wonder Years Reboot!…

“Disney has fired Fred Savage from his gig as producer on The Wonder Years reboot, citing ‘inappropriate conduct.’ This isn’t the first time the former child star has been on the receiving end of allegations. Is there any truth to it? Disney claimed they did an investigation, but we know Hollywood has a tendency to throw actors overboard first and ask questions later.”

I remember this fairly well…The allegation is that Fred [and his older TV brother] would not stop propositioning the woman who filed the lawsuit for sex…Allegedly, they both kept trying to get her to agree to have sex with them.

Not sure if this was a genuine thing, or more of a prolonged ribbing…joshing…running joke…young males being dorky young males for a laugh…

She didn’t want to be with them, and got tired of it.

I’d have loved to have known Fred when he did The Princess Bride…or Little Monsters…Something tells me he was not bashful.
