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
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.
Okay so you don't spend wasted hours on social media, yet know exactly why the "meltdown", to use a media term, occurred on various platforms over the trailer? "Meltdown" btw equals the majority of users didn't give a flying fudge, but hey drama is going to drama to the media. Really wish we could get back to something I like to call Journalism.
Funny how informed UncleFB is on every issue here but he never uses Twitter despite spending years talking about what's on it and never watches YouTube but knows who are the channels are and what they say, but is all over every thread on PR with his opinions of it
I thought you were a facts dude but here you are wilfully misrepresenting what I've said.
I've never said I don't watch Youtube, I watch lots of stuff on Youtube (history, how-to channels etc), but due a) to an old roommate who was deep diving in the culture wars BS I used to get it clogging up my recommendations, and then b) whenever I open a JP or Joe Rogan thread on here (other forums) then they'd all return. I've found the don't show me this content is probably only 50% effective.
As for twitter, what world do you think I live in where you think I can avoid twitter even though I don't actively use it? I don't live in a bubble. Almost any shit that happens on twitter winds up in here, other forums, or in news websites as "sources".
What I really want to know, and this is directed at my fellow Magpies whanau Salient as well, is why minimise stuff that happened? I've not at any stage said there weren't genuine people who disliked the Ghostbusters trailer/movie on cinematic quality alone (each to their own, films are subjective as fudge, there's even people who like Jurassic World 2 out there), but you guys seem to go out of your way to try and claim that was the only thing that was happening when clearly it wasn't.
