Nope. May check it out when it hits the high seas, but I've no intention in rewarding gross incompetence in its marketing, with no way of knowing whether it's worth the popcorn money given the complete lack of journalistic objectivity among the critics.

I've been observing the argument - and it's interesting to see the current state of play over at rottentomatoes.com, user reviews appear to be vanishing. Some are trolls, no doubt - but thousands ?

Hmmm - interested to see if anybody on this board has actually seen it and would offer a review ...

I'm not giving money to that film after the actress, essentially, shit all over "white men". Sorry that I wasn't born a Somali woman, Brie. Please forgive my sin of being born.

what I find ironic about this is it is that same (bullied) demographic that kept comic books alive for soo long. Now that is mainstream all the bottom feeders are jumping on it.

Also, all these actors/actress are narcissist, they want to be relevant , they want the attention. If aspects of society are denouncing "white males" due to a small subset soo devorced from reality that their behaviour seemed normal and the backlash is to demonise all "white males", what do you think those with half a brain, those who's only contribution to society is to be looked at are going todo ?

The most resounding endorsement of the film I've ever read anywhere.
