Not a clam in sight.

This is the film that pleasantly surprised me, had high praise from people whose opinion I can trust and went to the cinema to see it.

No over pandering to any message (other than America fuck yeah) and Maverick was still the best but more in a mentor role this time. So do we need to keep women out of the creation process to get more films like this as I'm willing to engage in some patriarchy for a great films again.

Why did you click on Ehren's name? Also the movie is clearly the dying dream of Maverick. He died at the beginning. I never heard this theory but after seeing it this week, it's obvious he dies

I wanted to make sure it wasn't a woman, I didn't recognize the name as male or female.

Actually verifying the accuracy of your posts? You've come a long way. I'm proud of you.

22 hours ago: Of course it's a woman. (Okay, it wasn't. But my point still stands.)

I always verify what I say.

Not a spotless record in the past. Now you do. That was actually a sincere compliment.

ngl, the Saga of Imp vs AoV has gotten pretty cringe.

Individually they make good points but against each other it is like watching two armless men trying to box. Pointless and it goes on forever.

I think it's a different spelling of Aaron

I thought your complaint was going to be that they were all women.

TheImpossible1 [S] 1 point ago +6 / -5

No, the opposite. This proves that success is directly correlated to the lack of them.

Not a large enough sample size, man. N=1 is bad stats. All this does is give you grounds to start investigating the relationship. you need at least 20 measurements before you can start drawing conclusions that are mathematically valid.

LibertyPrimeWasRight 2 points ago +2 / -0

The N gets much higher if you include all the shitty women-led projects, to be fair.

yamez 2 points ago +2 / -0

that's true, but you can't isolate that variable without a better control. Right now the theory is "women in positions of leadership in entertainment produce unappealing work" and you've got lots of examples, N=lots, of the positive. But you also need a contemporary control, which is what Top Gun is. It can't be an older work, because there might be an unidentified variable--such as ideology or local culture which are interfering in the relationship.

So N(female) and N(male) are your dependency and control respectively. Good luck, if you actually get results, it would be shocking and well worth writing a paper.

Fair point, but I could wait 10 years and there wouldn't be 20 successful movies.

If you can see everything else besides it, then isn't that the same as seeing it?

Yes David Ellison moved from making television shows and bad Hallmark movies to producing.

Or rather, notice the lack of something?

Kathleen Kennedy?

And everyone who shares her most obvious trait.

AntonioOfVenice 16 points ago +17 / -1

Being a cunt, or having one?

You could just as easily suggest they're all white or Jewish.
