…because a woman doesn’t speak for 20 minutes into the film.
I am one of many Americans who has grown tired and bored with Hollywood production and values.
One of the bright spots for me has been anticipating the release of “Oppenheimer”, which is the story of story of American physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role in the development of the atomic bomb as the goal of the famous Manhattan Project during World War II.
Apparently, I am not the only one. It appears the box office already exceeded expectations.
While Oppenheimer’s critical ratings have blown past Barbie with a near-perfect Rotten Tomato score, the latter, which stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, is now expected to double the Cillian Murphy-starring biopic’s box office takings.
However, both releases have shot past their expectations in a huge way, perhaps proving that audiences are tired of sequels and superhero films.
Barbie was estimated to earn $110m at the US box office during opening weekend, with Oppenheimer‘s total was projected to sit around $50m. Impressively, Barbie is now on track to take $150m, with Nolan’s drama set to amass $75m.
Speaking in a new interview with The Independent, Nolan described Oppenheimer as “the biggest film I’ve made”. Meanwhile, Murphy admitted to struggling to watch the film due to seeing his face projected on the screen, but acknowleged that the film is “designed” to be “watched with an audience”.
Of course, given the presence of so many white males over 50 involved in the Manhattan Project, “Oppenheimer” has earned the derision of at least one extreme feminist.
A feminist academic has slammed the new Oppenheimer movie after claiming that no women speak until 20 minutes into the movie.
The film, which explores physicist the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, who created the atomic bomb, was released this weekend to rave reviews.
On Twitter, Dr Tanya Roth criticized the film for it’s lack of female representation within the first twenty minutes.
On Friday, the expert on woman’s history, said: ‘Fun fact: no women speak until 20 minutes into Oppenheimer and then within a minute there’s a sex scene.’
She also followed this up with: ‘To add to this: no people of color appear for at least 30 minutes, and I believe there are 2 black men in the entire movie.’
The entertaining responses to Roth’s inanity are hilarious, and worth a look if you need a laugh.

Apparently, the race to be victimized by “Oppenheimer” is on.
Indian netizens slammed the movie and the director for having a scene where the main character Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy) quotes a line from the Bhagavad Gita ( the Hindu sacred text) while making love to Jean Tatlock (Florence Pugh).
I’m calling for a boycott of the movie Oppenheimer. I just learned there is a highly offensive scene involving the Bhagavad Gita in it. I will not repeat it here, but it involves something explicit. Never trust Hollywood and West to depict Hinduism positively and accurately.

I am tired of being victimized by all the victims. I suspect the whining will lead to even more ticket sales…which are already so robust that “Oppenheimer” has just blown out “John Wick 4” for best opening of an R-rated movie.DONATE
