Jussie Smollett

Who isn’t talking about this guy, am I right?

The whole situation, too me personally, is just all really odd. From Smollett to the alleged attackers, to everyone being so gosh darn eager to jump on the “we hate Jussie Smollett” bandwagon.

For myself, I don’t need proof that the alt-right, extreme Trump supporters are not very nice people, you see it everywhere, every day, we do not need someone to make it up.

What frustrates me a lot about this situation though, is just the bandwagon from everyone. While completely ignoring other people who have made allegations that are not true, which are just as bad. Like the MAGA group demanding an apology for the Smollet situation, do they understand we believe him because THEY make it so easy to believe him? What about themselves? Jacob Wohl tried and failed to make false rape allegations against Muller…Where is his apology? He doesn’t even acknowledge what he did. No one is saying that he should have the book thrown at him? #whiteprivilege much?! Not only all that, he keeps talking about Jussie Smollet like he has NEVER done something similar in his life! Despite his rape allegations being less than a year ago!

What inspired me though to write this blog was this “entertainment reporter” from the Morning Show in Australia on Channel 7. I don’t know how he got his job, but he’s very much the type that jumps on bandwagons. Harassing celebrities, he seems very eager to please. He however said something that just made me go…

The biggest “proof” that this alleged attackers have is that he paid them with a cheque to beat him up. Now Smollett has come out saying that the cheque was to pay them for their workouts, health and diet type tips. This “reporter” said and I quote “Even if the cheques were for these two guys workout, health and diet tips. That doesn’t let Smollett off the hook”…

If the only proof you have of someone being not truthful, isn’t true…I don’t know how to even finish off that sentence,lol. If something isn’t true, than it isn’t true…Right?

He also went on about how Smollett is on Ice, with no proof.

 

Do we demand too much?

Last week I wrote a review about a movie that I had seen called “Inside Out” I had had plans to see it while it was in the cinemas, but it just never happened. So on Netflix we saw it was on there and so we decided to watch and I had ended up being very disappointed to not really enjoy it, as I just expected to as everyone else had told me I would. Which had made me start to question about getting caught up in the bandwagon of these “must see” movies.

I believe this is because we are given SO much detail about the movie before it even comes out, that we have these expectations of what the movies will be in it’s entirety, before we’ve even seen it.

Take the live action film Beauty and the Beast for example. People were making HUGE judgements just based on the whole Emma Watson not wearing a corset thing. I have literally seen people make comments about how they are not going to see the film, because she’s not wearing the “true” outfit. Which is kind of ironic to me, since the whole movie is about not judging based on appearances. Then I thought to myself, would it have been better to notice it once the film has come out and not before? I honestly didn’t notice that she wasn’t even wearing a corset until people pointed it out. So people could make better judgements, whether it really makes that much of a difference to the film. Which, while I get the sentiment, I just don’t think it should be the focus of the film.

Sometimes to me it feels like there has to be a social or political point to make for people to go see a film, rather than just go see a film, to enjoy it. Sometimes I honestly feel the fun has been taken out of just seeing a film for the sake of seeing a film that you just want too. Sometimes it feels like there is just so much information out there and of course someone is going to be offended by something, and it’s hard to see a film without those people giving you a hard time about what they feel all offended by and I just want to see the film.

There have been many times when I have to go to see a movie a few weeks after it’s come out and I’ve been expecting to really enjoy it and I didn’t. Or films that I’ve seen when everyone else did, enjoyed it, watched it later and just did not enjoy it.

Has this ever happened to you readers? Do you feel like we are getting to much information before a film is even out? Have you ever decided not see a film or to see one because of all the “information” before a film comes out, or does it not affect you?

I am choosing to enjoy this Beauty and the Beast film.
