I don't know if he touched on it, but many streaming services put out garbage because people will still watch it because there is nothing else on.

That's how we get such classics as 'Space Sweepers'. Which I will never watch.

Don't you DARE talk about Space Sweepers like that, it was a gem of a movie. The acting was sublime, the story was original, the special effects were amazing and everything else about the movie was great. please send help, Netflix kidnapped my cat and forced me to write that

I disagree with his premise that pieces of entertainment can't or shouldn't contain political views. The original runs of Star Trek were hugely political. Arguably the most "fun" movies right now, comic book movies, are based on material that came from largely progressive thinkers. Some of our best pieces of "based on a true story" movies are about condemning fucked up institutions.

Having politics in movies doesn't make them bad. Hamfisting politics into movies makes them bad.

Case in point:



We would never of had Nazis in space if we kept political bent out of the writing. Trek is a reflection of the political tides of the time, always has been.

Not just Trek, but most of science fiction.

the problem with "politics" in movies is the same problem with "politics" in business

it's not our politics, it's the politics of the rich

woke branding and its consequences have been a disaster for humanity

authentic voices occassionally break out, and those tend to be the cult success stories. until they start merchandising...
