White nerd-bro gets beat up by some scumbags in a bar. Starts playing with dolls and gets a movie made about it.


Will not watch.

He got his ass beat so bad he suffered brain damage, I believe.

He told them he was a cross-dresser.

I didn't know that was what the movie was about. The marketing campaign deliberately omits that part of the story. I guess Hollywood thinks regular people wouldn't embrace a cross dressing protagonist .

The trailer that has appeared on TV every day seems pretty upfront about all that.

He says "they beat me within an inch of my life because I was different." For a middle-aged guy recalling his teen years, "different" is clearly code for gay.

The trailer also shows the dolls/action figures.

Is he gay though? If hes transgender he might like men and still be straight.

The Favourite marketing also leaves out (or minimizes) the LGBTQ aspects of it. It's almost like they're trying to avoid controversy from people who aren't going to watch the film anyway.

Film looks like hot garbage, tho. Carrel can't pick a good leading role to save his life.

How is a movie made by Robert Zemeckis (age 66) starring Steve Carell (age 56) about a Gen X-er in anyway a reflection on millennials?

Does the movie Tootsie mean boomers were all cross dressers?

The movie is an unreconstructed bomb, on track to lose at least $50 million.

anotherjd (Dec 24, 2018 - 5:41 pm)

Nobody knows what's his about. A grown man plays with dolls for no apparent reason? Huh?

Reply
gladigotaphdinstead (Dec 24, 2018 - 5:55 pm)

Everyone with half a brain knows what it’s about. It’s about a guy who gets mercilessly beaten for being different and retreats into a fantasy world where he can be safe and in control of what happens there.

The problem isn’t the story is confusing. The problem is that the story was told in bad/boring way.

Don’t work yourself up too much big guy. You know it’s bad for your heart.

Hard for us non PhDs to figure out the story from trailer. Guy looks retarded and plays with dolls.

Easily. And to think it was made as prestige awards bait. An obvious turkey when the reviews were withheld until the day before its release.

Marwen getting accepted to Cooley Law and taking out a giant student loan would be peak millenial-ness. Millenials would be crying and cheering.
