    [–] [Other] Captain Marvel just got screened! Social Media Reactions are now out! Cyril0987 -23 points ago in boxoffice

    Please stop. Why is box office sub turning into a political and sjw bullshit for this movie.

    Definitely more tragic if you have any idea how both Nations came to be and now what they have become. One would think they would be strong given all the history that they share but that's not the case. And it's not the people majority but the political agenda that mostly drives this. Hopefully the future would be better for both countries.

    Not only are you being disrespectful to the one's that lost their lives but also posting inflammatory comments when most of the people are just trying to grieve in the situation. How the hell do you rationalise the things you are saying?

    Hey now, hold on, that happens everywhere. John Oliver got sued for his take on coal companies. Not that I am ignoring the other problems. But every country has rich assholes/corporations who use the law to silence any dissent coming their way. Law always favors the rich.

    [–] Chinese Redditor from Hong Kong explains how Jackie Chan is viewed at home as opposed to the well-liked guy in the West Cyril0987 19 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago) in bestof

    That's not true. The thing you mention happened in Jan 2015 and few weeks his son was released.

    As for Jackie Chan,

    2004 – As somewhat of a ‘pro-Beijinger’, Chan commented that Taiwan’s elections were “the biggest joke in the world.”

    2008 – He threatened to ‘chop down‘ protesters speaking out at the Olympic torch rally.

    2009 – Jackie laments the freedom afforded to ‘chaotic’ post-Handover HK, stating that “I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we are not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.”

    2010 – Just as the outrage died down, Jackie tweeted a comment regarding the Manila bus hijacking: “If they killed the guy [hijacker] sooner, they will say why not negotiate first? If they negotiate first, they ask why not kill the guy sooner? So sad.” The tweet went down like a lead balloon with distraught Hong Kongers, provoking a spate of online ‘Boycott Jackie’ campaigns and an apology.

    As I said just below,

    Title works, I saw no reason to change it. Also it was three years old, wouldn't have posted otherwise. I came across it just now by different route and was pretty sad about the whole ordeal since I am a big fan of Jackie Chan. Just wanted to share the pain. I promise to attend my hearing at r/karmacourt if summoned.

    So, entertainment industry is seeking monetary value out of Chinese market by customizing their products to pass the censorship laws.

    Reddit is not aiming for Chinese market

    U sure about that? Since reddit was actively seeking for funds from the same market and now since they got it, wouldn't they want to please them for keeping the funds afloat in future.

    I have added other sources below, verifying most of it. Just scroll down.

    Update: Here you go, just copying from my other comment.

    There's more.

    1. China Uncensored Video

    2. Buzzfeed: How Jackie Chan Became The Most Hated Celeb On The Chinese Internet

    3. The Washington Post The anti-Americanism of Jackie Chan

    When you start researching on your own after seeing a lot of posts on r/all in the past few days. Which leads you to a certain China Uncensored video, which further expands your research on account of years of love of jackie chan being questioned, which finally led me to this post. :(

    You can't say it's just data though. Look at the entertainment industry and how they bend over backwards to remove anything offensive to china. Censorship happens one way or another. Examples include: Winnie the pooh movie, Iron Man 3, Doctor Strange, RedDawn, etc. Source

    Automatically tagged. I just came across it during my search after watching a china uncensored video on the same topic.

    Update: Not a tag but the name of the subreddit from where the original comment is. :)

    Are we talking about the box office or quality now? Because from a box office perspective, it adds a lot of value.

    Yes. And next learn to make a distinction between people and government.

    [–] [Other] The CaptainMarvel social media embargo lifts February 19th at 9:30pm pst and reviews are embargoed until March 5th at 6am pst. Cyril0987 -1 points ago in boxoffice

    I am a DC fan, did you just see my flair?. Usually I stay out of marvel discussion if I have nothing to add, just check up avengers threads or ant man or the wasp thread. You guys enjoy it, and that's all good.

    But this movie has been rubbing me the wrong way ever since the first trailer. All the social media is up in arms about it, taking any sort of criticism and turning it into anti-feminist or mysogynist bullshit. My feed is filled with all sorts of labels being thrown around for anyone saying anything negative about it. Plus the other factors that I have mentioned before also are very alienating to a lot of people.

    [–] OTHER: For People In LA/NYC, There's Free Screenings For Shazam! On Feb. 13th and 19th Cyril0987 6 points ago in DC_Cinematic

    They are up against some well known properties(week before and next week) so it will be helpful for them to help set the WOM flowing in early.

    But, in all seriousness this will do wonders for their opening weekend. Walter hamada joining DC might be the best decision that they have made. He is taking away the uncertainty and confusion away from the franchise.
