Chemda can you stop asking if Louie or any other creep can come back? It's been five minutes. Let them be out for some time.

Once upon a time (like 20 years ago) coal mining jobs and other industrial jobs could support a whole family.

In my hometown a job down at the shipyard is seen as a great gig. Those guys can make $75k+ a year without needing a degree. In Alabama you can support a family, own a huge home in a nice neighborhood and have a stay at home wife for that salary.

Plus it plays into the macho man who is able to support his family while doing a manly job cultural thing.

The guys who work down at the docks often do manual labor/physical type jobs. Like welding, electrical work, heavy equipment operators etc.

(Or they work offshore on an oil rig for months at a time.)

These are the kind of jobs that get the women down here wet cause they got a hard working man who comes home with rough hands and dirty fingernails to put food on the table.

Very stereotypically manly.

Why are the new DC movies so bad??? I watched Batman VS Superman and almost everything about it stunk, the acting, the dialogue, the friggin cinematography. I don't even know what cinematography means and I couldn't comment on it in most movies I see, but B VS S looked SO BAD.

I've heard that the reason you have movies like Get Out nominated as comedy/musical is because the studios think they have a better chance of winning in that category. That's why you see movies like The Martian (which should've really been in the drama category) going up against more traditional comedies like Trainwreck.

Similarly, in 2014 Orange Is The New Black was nominated in the drama category. However since then, it's been in the comedy or musical category because there is less competition.

Of course this does suck for actual comedies because they then have less of a chance to win. It just backs up what Keith's been saying for years about how comedies aren't respected in these award shows.

Joss volunteered to help finish the movie when Snyder's daughter died during production.

Get Out wasn't *nominated* as a comedy, ie no academy called it a comedy and said that, the production company submitted it as such to get it to the academy. it can still be brought up as a horror film during the actual awards. Tons of studios submit films in funny ways to get their movies into the first step of the process.

Not to change anyone's mind but I liked the seriousness of Justice League. The humor in Thor was *almost* too forced (and again I liked Thor). I liked JL being a movie about broken ass people trying to bring back the one guy who is better than then and will help them be less terrible. I was pissed Ben Afflek never took off his shirt. His bat costume looked like it came from party city.
