You'd be surprised. She-Hulk & the other MCU shows s/b dominating the 7 - 30 year old age range.

It's not. None of them are.

You can't just take male super hero X and then "create" She-X. It's lazy and pandering - the average person sees right through that.

She-Hulk actually is a comic book character & loved by the fans. The problem is they're killing the male characters or turning them into buffoons and/or cowards. Can't have a strong female character w/out turning the male equivalent into Homer Simpson.

I did not know that - I haven't looked at a comic book in a long long time I guess....

Tragic Kingdom: House of Mouse Loses Its Magic as Customers Complain of Sky-High Prices, Dirty Facilities


Quote:Walt Disney World used to be the place where memories were made and dreams were realized. But has the magic faded away? Park-goers are increasingly complaining about dirty facilities, broken-down rides, and prices that seem to come from a galaxy far, far away.

“Some rides are just a straight mess,” wrote one reddit user. “Rides are also down a lot. It’s been lacking since they reopened and I don’t expect it to change anytime soon.”

He’s not the only one—in fact, there’s an entire reddit channel called “Disney lacking” where visitors go to complain about the state of the park. Here’s another one from last week: “Disney never seemed like a place where you felt like corners were being cut. Seems like right now they’re coasting through with the travel boom and holiday guests.”



DailyMail reports:

One picture of a sign for the Epcot monorail appeared to be in need of a good clean with streaks of dirt, while one of the park’s flagship rollercoasters, Space Mountain, which used to [be] a gleaming white color now appears to be caked in grime and dirt.

Meanwhile, prices under CEO Bob Chapek have gone through the roof, forcing vacationers to look elsewhere for their getaways. Here are the unmagical numbers:

The tab for admission tickets to the Disney World and Disneyland theme parks has jumped more than 3,871% in the past 50 years — dwarfing increases in visitors’ wages, as well as the cost of rent and gas, according to figures compiled by a data-tracking firm.

Seems like a good time to raise the prices at the Victoria & Albert’s restaurant, located in the Grand Floridian resort. After your day enjoying the rides, you can stop by for some grub which can run as high as $625 per person for a four-hour, 10-course meal. Throw in some mocktails for another $110, maybe pair some wines for a cool $200. “Hey Junior, let’s catch Space Mountain one more time, then we’ll go drop a couple grand on some chow and vino.” Just doesn’t seem very Disney World to me.

Several Reddit posters agreed: “Crazy overpriced,” one groused. “Michelin star restaurants in NYC don’t even cost that much (except the very best, like Eleven Madison Park, which is ‘only’ $335).” Even the French are complaining:



Remember when:




But there’s more: The Walt Disney Company and boss Bob Chapek decided to insert themselves into Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill controversy, and they lost badly as Governor Ron DeSantis dissolved Disney World’s special, corporate self-governing status. Not only did Chapek get knocked down a peg or two, the publicity for Disney was not a good look—why is the family-friendliest company on earth fighting for the sexual and gender identity indoctrination of little kids?

At the same time, as Morse and others on RedState have reported, Disney’s desperate bid to shove leftist politics into all its entertainment is backfiring badly. Not surprisingly, the company’s stock price is down a devastating 41 percent over the last 12 months.

Disney is a huge company, and will certainly continue on making billions. But for many—those that can still afford to go to Disney World or force themselves to sit through an episode of She-Hulk—it’s lost its magic.

Perhaps if the company re-focused on things that brought them success, things like, I don’t know…. families and kids?

We had Disney+ because I have 4 and 6 year old daughters that like the traditional pre-woke cartoon films (Beauty and the Beast, Snow White, etc). Nobody watched anything outside of those, and once they saw what they wanted to see, we dropped it. Pretty much everything they've produced since about 1995 has been trash, unless you are a Star Wars nerd, which nobody in my family is.

Most of the Star Wars stuff has been trash too. The exception being the Mandalorian, and the last few episodes of Book of Boba Fett which were basically the Mandalorian.

I tried to like Obi Wan but it was boring to me.

I wouldn't know, I haven't gotten through any of them. Even as a kid, I couldn't get through 15 minutes. Never got the appeal, but people love it.

Same. I don't understand 40+ year old men who love superhero, comic book, or animated movies. I just don't get it. If I never saw anything Disney again it would be A/OK in my book.

Have to disagree with you on that one. With the soundtrack that movie was great

Loved the soundtrack.

The story felt super rushed, and it was too silly... even for Thor.

I absolutely HATED Russell Crowe's Zeus.

Yep, they made Thor over the top silly, as well as Zeus. Zeus was absolutely ridiculous. The reason I think they did it, is because they were doing what they could to make the women look that much better.

It still had it's moments, but overall, I felt like it was a bad movie.

Well, if you couldn't get through 15 minutes of it when you were the target audience, I doubt you'd enjoy it now.

A large part of it is nostalgia obviously.

I guess I'm showing my age. I have no desire to watch any of these Marvel movies. They all seem silly to me now.07-coffee3

They've seemed silly to me since I was about 7 or 8. To each their own, but I can't believe there are so many grown men into comic books.
