Now Santa, you know that isn't what it says at all. They're going to review disparities resulting from the policy, not the policy itself. Comprehension 6/10.


That’s a great hair split. :thumbup:

No, it's not. We should hope all public servants review the data before thinking about making a decision. It's like the difference between looking at the fat girl at the party and drunkenly shagging her later.

Some wonderful racial categorisation coming out from the University of California. I haven't seen this level of granularity since the Great Chain of Being. :thumbup:
A student’s primary race/ethnicity is determined by the left-most column in the table above of all the categories selected. For most UC current reporting (such as the Accountability Report and the UC Information Center), the italicized heading at the top of the column is considered the primary race/ethnicity.

Interestingly being Black Trumps being Native American or Hawai'ian.

Is be pissed as a Portuguese losing merits to a princess from Madrid, and amazingly there’s no where for a black Brazilian at all.

:lol: Fair enough.

I remember when the BSG remake came out and I refused to watch it because they made Starbuck and Boomer women. Then I got over myself and watched it and it was awesome (and Boomer is hot). So I've tried to judge everything on it's own merits, except Point Break of course.

The worst "woke" outrage was the complaints about Emma Stone's character in Aloha not being played by an Asian actress despite the fact the character was half white, quarter Hawaiian and quarter Asian. The pool for finding an actress to fit that was presumably pretty low.
Yeah that is very true (r.e. Emma Stone).

For my personal 2c, I quite liked the all-women Ghostbusters. I thought it kept the same vibe and atmosphere of the originals and was quite watchable and amusing. Not the greatest movie ever of course, but it wasn't horrible.
That movie was what made realise there are a bunch of whiny male dipshits out there that will hissy fit over anything. That movie was slated before release by internet crowd, even though the original principals gave their blessing and were involved.
I give you the theme song for the all female ghostbusters, and the "whiny male dipshits out there that will hissy fit over anything" were reacting to the trailer that was completely wank btw, do you want to also include the reactions of people involved with the female movie who certainly lead to a whole lot of folk boycotting it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AQ44nPrRTM

Actually didn't mind the movie 6/10 from me, watchable, humour is America dribble, doesn't match the original
You mean the ones who reacted to the whiny dipshits that were hissy fitting with a bit of racism to boot?

Not sure what the Youtube video is for? I thought it was going to be the reactions of the people involved. I also didn't mention the trailer, the internet lot were melting down long before a trailer was released.

I'd probably give it the same rating.
No I'm talking about the Director and studio execs referring to the haters as misogynist and being Trump voters in some real fire the flames pronouncements as people simply stated the trailer sucked, which it did.

I was certainly turned off the movie by the reaction of the Director, who needs to give himself a good upper cut, but caught up with the movie in a box set with the first two movies. Not the best movie I've ever seen but certainly not the worse.

You may want to pretend that all the criticism was about the trailer, and this is the thread you'll get support for that, but that’s utter B/S.

Okay no meltdown on youtube over the trailer, and the trailer wasn't condemned left, right, and center as being perhaps the worse ever released at the time. Clearly you are more up on social media than I am :nod:

Yeah it's true, I looked it up on Wikipedia and read that too. Apparently grey-blue eyes. Interesting.

In Felmming's own words: slim build; a three-inch long, thin vertical scar on his right cheek; blue-grey eyes; a "cruel" mouth; short, black hair, a comma of which rests on his forehead.

Physically he is described as 183 centimetres (6 feet) in height and 76 kilograms (168 lb) in weight and also smoked 60 custom rolled cigarettes a day.

I wish they'd make a movie with a chain-smoking Bond that fits the description. To hell with the poliitcal correctness around smoking heros. Also, set it in the 1960s. That would be awesome.

Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston now come to mind.
Casino Royale was published in 1953, if there's ever to be a period Bond film it has to be set in 1953

Bond films give me the shits when they try and cram in as many exotic locations in the opening 10 minutes - with no plot.

Starts in Mogadishu, then Venice, London, Cairo followed by the Bahamas.

The last four years should have been the best of times for white supremacists but they just seemed to get angrier than ever. That kind of fanaticism happens with the weakest and most vulnerable.

A lot of f**ked up people, not just in the US, are going to have to try wind their necks in and reintegrate with normal society over the next few years.

I didn't say there wasn't criticism about the trailer (I don't watch trailers so never saw it to make a first hand appraisal) at all.

I also don't really go on social media, I've used my twitter account three times, to argue with the NH hack Brendan Gallagher when he's spouting ill informed stuff about Polynesians. One of the Empire writers used to have a link to all the shit social media posts that weren't just about a crap trailer.
