The HBO Max remake of the Looney Tunes should've never happened! Wanna know why? Warner Bros. staff made it so Elmer Fudd can NO LONGER use guns in the remake!!! :evil:


I know this might be a popular opinion, but I originally gonna post this in the "You know what pisses me off? Round 2" thread, but I already post in it 2 days ago. : \

Had to research this, and looks like this decision es made to fit into modern culture and also because of all the recent things that happened with gun violence.

Well, a lot of people already said they ain’t gonna watch the remake now because of that.
Unsure what to think about it.

I don't think WB made so that Elmer Fudd can no longer use guns, I think they made him no longer use guns is because of the raid that is happening right now. I know it sucks but at least they still have a hell reference which is better than Elmer Fudd losing his guns. By the way, there is more to Looney Tunes than guns to be honest.

I blame CNN for that.

I might get some hate and also get tarred and feathered for saying this, but screw it, I don't give a shit:


I think people should cut Adam Sandler some slack for some of the films he's in!

I think people have been congratulating him a lot for his work in Uncut Gems. He's not half the joke he used to be.
In an age of darkness light appears
And it wards away the ancient fears
March to the anthem of the heart
To a brand new day, a brand new start

I'm pretty sure someone said this already, but the Rick Roll meme would've been better if the internet use ALL of Rick Astley's songs instead of just the one song

I only know two songs by Rick Astley: "Never Gonna Give You Up," and "Together Forever." Plus, I feel with so many of us being fully aware of the concept of Rick Rolling being the one song, I ain't too sure if anyone will get that another randomly played Rick Astley song was supposed to be someone Rick Rolling us. Not to mention, "Never Gonna Give You Up" was already a major hit 20 years (1987) before it became an internet phenomenon (2007). Would it be simple to realize you're being Rick Rolled if "Together Forever" were to play seconds after the video begins?

This may be a "Exclusive" unpopular opinion for anyone who was a kid during the 90's, but screw it:



Kids' WB is better than Fox Kids

Modern Disney crap sucks more than any Adam Sandler movie, because most of them followed the SAME damn movie formula and expect the braindead audience to remember shit later on in the freaking movie! I mean why can't fucking dumbasses at Disney come up with a more "original" formula for their movies?!? #FML

Disney has lost alot of viewers after becoming way to political. I honestly stopped going to any disney movies back when toy story 4 came out and the new toy had the gay pride symbol on him. Nothing wrong with the symbol but no reason to have it in a kids movie. They also have some very political actors that are turning people away.

Plus Disney had that cruise ship that took kids to Jeffery Epstiens island and is buying up alot of tv stations like ABC news and movie companies like 20th century fox. They took out the 20th century part I think.

I don't know what Disney is thinking but it's costing them money.

Netflix is also trash. They have become very political in the last 4 year's and now they have a movie called "cuties" about 11 year old girls half naked and twirking. The movie is rated for adults. Disgusting. Netflix has lost millions since they aired that movie.

Now there is also the NFL losing alot of money for political reasons. It's just crazy to watch tv anymore.
I want to say thank you to God for every day he gives me on this planet and for the chance to be in a better place when I die.

Right...

When people disagree with something on the basis of being "too political" it generally means that it touches on topics they don't agree with/didn't grow up with. Cartoons, games, tv shows, music have always been political. If representation of homosexuality is enough for you to never watch movies by that publishing company again, that's... either an unfounded overreaction or some deep-rooted homophobia. If you truly didn't mind the flag, it wouldn't impact your opinion on the movie.

being lgbtq is not inherently political, nor is it inherently something unfit for youth, many young teens and preteens are lgbtq

also dam enjl that reminds me of people who get shocked when they find out rage against the machine is political

Here is a movie that generally people hated for being political, and it is not from the story. There are boycotts and backlashes from the International Community. People are calling out Disney and pirating the movie.

Mulan
- Main Actress supported police brutality crackdown on Hong Kong democratic activists and protests.
- The movie is filmed near concentration camps near Xinjiang, where Uighurs are detained, work as slave labour, birth control or even mass killed.
- The credit scene thanked the local government propaganda for 'help'.

It is not just me. A lot of people hated the movie for having political controversies. I would say that the original cartoonish version is better.

I wouldn't say people hate it for being political, just for China doing the 3 things you listed. Maybe it's because I cannot take the term "too political" serious anymore, but I think the erasure of history and complete willfull blindness involved in Mulan goes a couple steps above mere political content. The most ironic thing about it, I think, is how original Mulan was "the story of a girl who can't help who she is but she exists in a different society that tells her who she is supposed to be", which... has some parallels to several ethnicities currently oppressed by mainland China.
