I think it's disingenuous and misleading when people attempt to discredit valid criticisms of shows, movies, etc. by labeling the critics as commies or right wingers or misogynists or nazi's or whatever.
Sure there are going to be people that don't like something due to those things, but it's not going to be the vast majority of people that dislike a movie or show that just plain isn't good. Hell, I remember when people that didn't like the Ghost Busters remake as misogynits. I guess that would have made my Lesbian cousin a misogynist.
Ghostbusters was mediocre at worst.
Yet it received reviews of the lowest score.
Either the people that gave it a score of 1 on imdb, have never seen a worst film than that in their entire lives, or they were review bombing for some other reason.
I'm specifically wondering about that crowd.
OTOH - I often see directors or movie studios attempt to blame bad reviews on anything they can think of except that their show is actually bad. So, they'll try to generate hysteria about people complaining about their show being bad because of X reason when X reason isn't why people think their show is bad.
There is mediocre, and there is bad.
There is a disproportionate outrage regarding mediocre films and TV series.
Obi Wan was mediocre.
Halo, I guess was bad, (didn't manage to push myself to continue watching after episode 2)
The Rings of Power was flawed but not bad at all.
Yet the buzz around it was that it was trash, even before the first episode aired.
The examples are countless at this point and there is the matter of subjectivity involved.
I personally didn't like Ghostbusters, but If I were to rate it, I would try to be objective.
Complaints about war profiteering is usually from the left, however.
Except in this case (it was in this forum), they thought it was an open attack on capitalism.
See, war profiteering bad, therefore, capitalism bad.
Why is there politics in my Star Wars, etc
