Earlier today I searched online for a phrase similar to “why do modern movies suck so much”, based on my observation that I don’t care at all about movies anymore. SJW remakes of classic franchises, think of the Ghostbusters fiasco or Star Wars: Rogue One just sicken me, but it’s not just that. I simply have the impression that there are hardly any standout movies anymore. They are a mere commodity nowadays. My search unearthed a video by Rob Ager with the title, “26 reasons why post-millennial movies are so awful”. You can listen to it the next time your sexy Pinay maid
unzips your pants cleans your house. For now, keep reading! I found myself nodding to Rob Ager’s analysis, but even better were two suggestions in the YouTube sidebar. They promised an analysis why former sex symbols Megan Fox and Jessica Alba no longer land great roles. Both videos are embedded further below.
My addition of the adjective “former” already gives away the surprise. The obvious reason why those women no longer get great gigs is simply because all they had to offer on screen were their looks. In my opinion, Megan Fox has always been overrated. You don’t recall Megan Fox? Teenage boys and adolescent men went crazy for her due to one particular scene in one of the Transformers movies. No, I haven’t watched them, but I’m familiar with that scene:
The (former) appeal of Megan Fox probably has a lot to do with the fact that the US population is rather obese. I don’t think she’s particularly remarkable, but maybe she’s just not my type. What is the obvious reason why Megan Fox no longer gets good roles? Could it have anything to do with the fact that she’s getting older and is aging badly? According to the following YouTube video, that line of reasoning is a complete no-no:
But what about Jessica Alba? I only heard about her because a lot of PUA guys back in the day were salivating over her. I even recall a clip of a David DeAngelo seminar where one of the attendees claimed he chatted up Jessica Alba in a night club in LA and was proud that his “opener” got him to have a conversation with a star for half a minute or so. I have my doubts that Hollywood A-listers mingle with the hoi polloi in those clubs, but that’s the least of the problems with the story of that loser.
Anyway, Jessica Alba raked in millions for being a hot chick. That worked fine as long as she was young and perky, but that’s no longer the case. I think she was well past her prime when PUAtards salivated about her, but that’s another story. Why can’t Jessica Alba get good roles anymore? According to the next videos there are a lot of reasons, but none has anything to do with Jessica Alba hitting the wall.
However, let’s not pity those women too much. They’ve made their millions. Now they only have to get through the rest of their lives. I wonder what it’s like to go from sex symbol to hitting the wall. It can’t be pretty. But, hey, maybe a few more trashy tattoos help? Some more honesty would help, too. I shudder at the thought that there are millions of people who have watched the two videos above who may not be able to question the drivel they have been exposed to. Maybe spelling out that actresses who attempt to build a career merely on sex appeal won’t stay in the business for long is a “hate fact”. How is Scarlett Johansson doing, by the way?
