modern times

Post by stevemarl » Mon Sep 02, 2019 1:04 am

I`m sure it`s been mentioned before that the new 007 is to be a woman, (no doubt gay too, just to be on the safe side). About time too eh ? I thought that was as far as they could go, but no, it seems not. Appearing at the Royal Exchange Manchester in October:

The war is over, the victory complete. But for Macbeth, the triumphant forces’ most fearsome warrior, the battle for the throne is only just beginning – and she’ll stop at nothing to take the crown.
In an action-packed production Macbeth battles with her overwhelming ambition. As her thirst for power becomes all-consuming, she dangerously spirals out of control with violent and bloody consequences for all.


So Macbeth is now a woman. Presumably Lady Macbeth will be her lesbian civil partner? Makes you think: men really are no longer needed are they, they`re totally surplus to requirements now. As long as you`ve got hairy lesbians and a sperm bank... God help us.
Really getting pissed off with this - aand another thing, we`ve got a bunch of climate protesters closing the main road through MCr city centre for 4 days. The police say they will support peaceful protest but will arrest anyone braeking the law. So taking over and blocking a main road through the city for 4 days is NOT breaking the law? Yet if I were to park on Deansgate I`d be prosecuted for obstruction. Funny how very keen they were to shift miners in the `80s. I absolutely agree with the protesters arguments but how is stopping people going about their business going to affect anything? Go and sort out Xi, Putin and Trump - they`re the ones who can change things, but you can`t get near them can you? As long as there`s money to be made from f***ing this planet it will just carry on and on to the bitter end and no yellow boats and amazonian drummers will make an iota`s difference. `full of sound and fury, signifying nothing`
Rant over.

Modern times or not, it's all getting out of hand Steve :doh:

I get your point Steve & feel your frustration about the protestors etc, the worlds gone mad. As for messing with iconic movie characters, apart from 007 & Macbethan, they're also resurrecting some other iconic films like: The Good The Bad & The Beautiful, Ben Her, Dirty Carrie to name but a few. But it's ok, to balance this out, we've also got some Male role reversals movies coming soon like: Marky Poppins, Charlie's Uncles & Billy Jones's Diary. ;)

I had 12 week Counselling at £50 a session when Doctor who turned in to a woman , I was fine when I caught my dad in one of my mums dresses but Doctor Who .

Do like the sound of Macbeth being a lesbian never could get William Shakespeare at school but sounds more interesting now .

That`s really funny,esp. Ben Her. We spent this afternoon trying to think of alternative titles, but we could only come up with Macbethan, Romeo and Julian, July Caesar etc. As for `The Two Gentleman of Verona`, could`ve been written for them really...

I guess it could make it more interesting for at least 1/2 the class ;)

It`ll be much ado about nothing as usual.
