I just saw Civil War. Its hard to watch something where the women act like men. Did they write male characters then turn them into women to be woke, how does it work?

About this movie, spoilers. The end is confused, it almost has two endings thematically. The callousness of the war correspondents and flipside glorification of violence and war. To document is to showcase is to entertain.

The second ending is; the prodigee earns her stripes, learns the lessons of war documentation and becomes the master. We as the audience are expected to feel fulfilled by her journey when two minutes ago, there was a scene which curtly criticised everything about the profession.

Is it worth watching? I don't know, there are better things to do. A civil war is interesting to think about though. Why wouldn't it happen in America's future? There's so many people and so many weapons.

    You're supposed to feel unfulfilled. The way the last 20 minutes are shot is endless brutality and intentionally way too loud gunshots as everything else is discarded chasing the president. Everyone trying to escape the combat is gunned down in their cars and everyone who is shot on either side is just pushed to the side as everyone else continues moving forward. They're beating you over the head trying to make you feel that everyone still in DC at this point is just insane and that the war has no greater meaning and has descended into reckless chaos.

    You're exactly the kind of person that would complain about how confusing "Poor Things" is because they don't know how they're "supposed to react to the scenes".
    You're probably used to Marvel movies where moral standpoints and clearly established and there's a clear moral winner at the end, but movies like Civil War are simply more ambiguous, they stay in that uncanny neutral zone where you could see journalists either as vital heroes of democracy or abject, borderline sociopathic, arrivists. And the bleak truth is they could very well be both.

      Maybe the very end is subjective. What I saw was a low angle shot of the protigee, making her 'awesome' and a loud click of the camera is a full stop on 'she's made it, she's got the shot, etc,' Now we all relax. How did you tards read the very ending? I don't know how else you could see it, I just watched it so its fresh in my mind.

        Being directed that way could just be a reflection of how the characters feel, not necessarily how we should feel. Like the end of Nightcrawler with the music. In fact, it shares a lot with Nightcrawler.

          I don't think so, that's a real meta interpretation of a hollywood movie. you're giving it too much credit, And the director can't have it both ways.

        Her mentor, whom she claimed to idolise, sacrificed her life to save her, and her reaction was to take a photo of her death then carry on without a thought, to get the shot that Lee was there for. You're supposed to feel disgust at her callousness, and pity for Lee for giving her life up for someone so ungrateful.

          I see what you're saying but ithe last part was really tonally off in a way that seemed like they didn't know how to end it rather than the protegees big moment shown how she sees herself. Maybe they were going for that but it didn't hit

    Pretty much. The current trend is to write female characters like psychopathic men because it's empowering somehow. They have no emotions and act like arrogant condescending idiots that the audience would hate if they were male.

    Why did the main character break down in the end? I think that's the key to understanding the ending. She has the most experience and yet is the one to completely lose it, probably because the whole situation is insane. Why she sacrifices herself to continue the cycle doesn't make sense though.

      well if you watch her for the whole film, she's just so flat, she's played pretty well. The only thing she cares about is the girl, she's just doing her job and going through the motions, and I think by the end she's just done. That's why she doesn't move out of the way, she's just ready to go. The girl taking her picture doesn't move me, and isn't believeable to me, but Dunst's character makes sense

    The rap music playing at one point after they executed that guy on the ground. I had to pause it and check I wasn't going insane.

      Same. On my laptop I had to pause it and check I didn't have music playing on another tab. I knew I wasn't going insane because I'm already insane.
      Wish the whole movies was like that. I really came to watch the chaos and no story and this movie actually delivered.
      Reminded me of Bushwick (2017).

    it just doesn't play. The story takes place over like three days, and the girl goes from puking at the sight of death to becoming the fricking nightcrawler, why am I supposed to care? It just felt contrived and hollow. The only time I felt something was when the old reporter died because he was the only character who wasn't a complete moron

    This is a big part of why I've completely checked out of modern media.

    Sort of unrelated, but I've noticed that women in modern media don't run like women anymore, or rather, they aren't filmed running in a way that you can see their bodies moving. Watching older movies and TV shows, I've started noticing how the women running hold their arms at their sides and spring-run with their lower legs. Most instances I've seen in recent media is shot and cut to hide their motions and make it appear as though they're running like men.

    I assume this is because when you see a woman running you immediately realize she doesn't have the physical ability of a man.

    the movie's biggest sin is the analog photos taken. subdue light + frenetic action + no focusing you will get a bunch of fricking blur without any impactful photos as the movie shows. it was a travesty that pissed me off than anything else.

      Yeah, it was moronic to use a film camera for such type of photography.
      Also because it would be hard to get film and developing chemicals during a civil war raging around and the US dollar being in the shitter.

          Did Garland just think there's something whimsical about film cameras? Most journalists use digital specifically because they don't want to have to deal with developing film.
