Roland Emmerich Takes To The Moon
Global disaster fetishist Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow) is back at it again, this time returning to one of his stomping grounds, outer space. The director will be taking on a project called Moonfall, a whopping $150 million dollar sci-fi epic. He will co-write the film with Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen.
So what’s it about? For reasons we probably do not even want to fathom the Moon is somehow hurled at the Earth. If you were wondering if Emmerich would expand his repertoire outside of wreaking havoc on the planet, you were mistaken. Roland Emmerich is the kind of guy who just wants to see the world burn.
Game of Thrones Gets Scolded
I haven’t seen HBO’s Game of Thrones since after Joffrey died so I have absolutely no idea what’s going on with the series save that apparently it has managed to piss of some SJWs. Excuse me while I weep for them. This alone is reason enough to dive back in (although my original reason for leaving was that they were drifting IMHO way too far from the source material…and not in a good way).
So apparently, Jessica Chastain and Ava DuVernay (director of that horrible film A Wrinkle in Time) both devout SJWs, are upset that it was implied that the character Sansa Stark was strong now because she had been raped numerous times throughout the series.
“You’ve changed, little bird.” Says a character called the Hound, who Sansa met when she was a meeker individual.
“Without Littlefinger and Ramsay and the rest, I would’ve stayed a little bird all my life,” Sansa replies.
Woah…the inhumanity! A character who has endured a living hell comes out stronger…heavens to Betsy perhaps she should have crawled into a ball and died.
This exchange was enough for Jessica Chastain to spontaneously sprout pink hair roots and take to Twitter proclaiming:
Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The #littlebird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone.#GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/TVIyt8LYxI

Thanks for that kernel of wisdom Jessica. I suppose we can now close down all those rape academy’s running day and night nationwide. You have shown us the error of our ways. Women don’t need to be raped in order to be strong…wow, that is positively brilliant. What would we do without your keen insight?
Meanwhile race-hustler and victim-porn producer DuVernay was frothing at the mouth because the only ‘woman of color’ Missandei was killed.

Evidently Westeros didn’t get the memo that Missandei was part of a protected class. Perhaps Ava should direct her own fantasy series where she can have colored woman…oh wait, that’s right. She did and it sucked.
Perhaps someone who isn’t obsessed with race would have done a much better job? In fact, I’m sure of it.
