So this is the competition. At least, the competition that is likely to survive the ruthless winnowing of #MeToo, #JustAJoke, #ComicsGate, #DontHitMeImAGirlNow and #PizzaGate2.

Who's with us?

This new take on the 1980s cult classic follows an orphan named Adora who leaves behind her former life in the evil Horde. She then discovers a magical sword that can transform her into the warrior princess She-Ra, and unites a group of magical princesses "in the ultimate fight against evil."
Makes little sense. How do they intend to make money from this? The original She-Ra followed the He-Man model (She-Ra is the twin sister of He-Man), and sold toys. But do they seriously think they can sell toys now from this Netflix series?

Just so everyone's on the same page, this is the STAFF. They're making a cartoon, this isn't the cast of a live-action show.

I'm assuming they will never mention her brother, "He-Man", or maybe this is a different thing. In any case I'm sure they will manage to be both boring and preachy, while the clock ticks on DebtFlix bonds.

One ought not attribute to malice that which can be explained by incompetence, but there is culpable negligence, so maybe malicious incompetence, and in any case they are not mutually exclusive.

Peter Kreeft (in the podcast 10 lessons on Evil from LoTR) noted that Evil defeats itself. Like some self-contradictory proposition. It doesn't mean we can be idle and not fight, but Sauron was defeated by the destruction of the ring by Hobbits. Even the banality of the Sword of Shannara was that it was simply a talisman of truth. Edmund did not attack the white witch but her wand. Puddleglum stamped out the Green Witch's fire.

Another Kreeft observation is that Evil cannot make, it can only mock - and usually badly. Rock Trolls are bad copies of Ents (I will avoid Chinese merchandise allusions). Orcs as the reject pile of elves. It is even worse when they take the mockary seriously, as apparently CW DC is doing.

I think it was somewhere in Plato that observed Tyrants always kill their loved ones, maybe parents. SJWs ALWAYS kill the golden goose. Even if the eggs exceed the volume and mass of the goose, they think they can open it up and have all the eggs as well as dinner. It is in (to use anotehr Aesopism) their nature like the scorpion and Frog.

The only problem with their Corporate Cancer (can't wait for the book) is that it is slow and, pun intended, progressive. And they will try every form of Leatrile by the time they need Chemo or amputation that the death spiral is all but guaranteed.

I'm waiting for Mickey to divorce Minnie and move in with Goofy as a sick Trans-Puppy. Oh for the days of "Song of the South"... Where's Uncle Remus when you need him, or has Castalia already signed the contract?

What the hell is this for? The question probably shows how out of the loop I am..what with no TV or social media accountants.
Its obvious that the creator of this picture has used an ugly manlet dyke as the replacement for a white male. The black girl is dressed like my wife, who is white and grew up in rural New England. In real life no black girl would dress like this, and nor should they, as its not culturally the way they dress.
The whole picture is bizarre.

Blogger Lovekraft July 22, 2018 11:06 PM  

My observation about SJW writing is it goes out of its way to avoid dealing with anything non-PC, or if it does, it always comes back to kumbaya PC messaging. Sorry, snowflakes, but sometimes there cannot be thoughts and prayers.

There are levels of threats that one could write about and I imagine most males want large, objective threats to be the focus. But when the SJW approaches these, it is either disingenuous or deflecting (blatant propagandavillains), or it is about how the villain can be neutralized by discussing his/her inner feelings. Boring and repetitive.

Males want tactics and conclusive outcomes. SJWs want feelings and agenda.

Oh wow, I just realized that "princesses of power" is the subtitle of the movie, not a description of the featured talent.

So the "Princesses of Power" are supposedly laying around, taking it in the mish by the bad-guys until Xe finds a "magic sword" that transforms them into powerful fighters who run around sticking it in the ass of the baddies.
A sword. Long thick hard sword. Almost phallic in its symbolism. Not just any old sword either, but a "magic" sword! I'm seeing a lot of penis envy here. Maybe it's just me.

Ps, Are we sure this isn't the cast for the next "Soy Wars" movie? Marysue didn't get married. She became a radical feminist and moved to Hollywood.

Smoke blown up asses for too long. These kids are groomed and handled from early days, told they’re so talented, so #woke, so #thefuture!

I didn’t realize the CW still mattered. I stopped watching Dawson’s Creek after season two, and I get my Supernatural fix elsewhere.

I watched He-Man when I was little. She-Ra, too. It was a bit try-hard, but I was aging out of that demo anyway. Which demo are they attempting to capture, here? A lot of these shows and reboots are pure GenX nostalgia, the world as we wish to see it after years of Kurt Loder telling us to Rock the Vote and change the world.

The only kids who might care are the too-young kids of aged GenX types, whose parents encourage the same faux1969 rebellion and sexual freedom narrative that characterized so much of the last decade of the 1900s. Suspicion: parents will think “cool! My kids love HeMan/SheRa like I did! Bonding time”. Reality: uh, wow, that show I used to watch was cool, but this? Uh, kids, let’s go for a bike ride...

I’ll make an exception for the Netflix reboot of Voltron, though. Yes, yes, Pidge is actually a girl and not only that, a super genius spy, but the story arc of rebellion within the Galra Empire, quintessence, Hagar, complicated allegiance...I’m enjoying it.

Somehow I don’t think the freshly shod She Ra will pass muster.

She-Ra was the original Get Woke-Go Broke.

In 1986, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe sold over $400 million in merch for Mattel. The next year it absolutely collapsed down to a $7 million.

The reason was She-Ra.

Little boys who had been running around yelling, "I HAVE THE POWER!" Suddenly had their baby sisters running around yelling, "No! I HAVE THE POWER!"

And all the little boys suddenly said, "Yeah, this is gay. I'm done with this."

The really laughable part is that She-Ra was only invented because He-Man had outsold Barbie.

The women at Mattel who ran Barbie, absolutely shit themselves when that happened.

To this day they deny having invented She-Ra for the sole purpose of killing He-Man but the fact that it did left them with quiet little cat-like smiles on their faces.

She-Ra killed a billion dollar (in eighties money) franchise because no one was allowed to out sell Barbie. NO ONE!

As a Netflix subscriber, I was generally pleasantly surprised at the quality of their productions. The last five to six months however I've seen an endless parade of drivel listed as Netflix exclusives. A Lesbian couple in one sci-fi type series (I think it is a ripoff of Ready Player One), another about the "deep state" with the lead character getting fed information from her tranny ex-husband...

I've noted that at best for any more recent BBC content on Netflix they avoid religion completely. When they do touch on it non-Christians get dome grudging respect, Christians appear to be vilified or idiots. If it wasn't for some of the other content, I'd likely drop Netflix. The only problem is I rather doubt Hulu or Amazon are any better.

Here is a link to the first release of the art for the cartoon.

To me, it looks like it is being done by the same studio artists that did the original Ben 10. It will suck for any number of reasons, but the source material pretty much sucked too. My oldest nephew and niece watched it in the 80s and had all the toys. They watched it later when it was rerun somewhere and it wrecked their childhood fun.
