Cait’s team fails her again

PEOPLE Magazine did an expanded issue called Beauties of the Year. It featured women from all sides of entertainment. Dozens of pages including special sections on:

Beauties with their cats

Beauties when they were cuties

Beauties without make-up

Beauties and their families

Beauties who give back

Beauties by the decade with roughly ten women in their thirties, forties, etc

No Cait that I could see when fast flipping through it.

These are the types of features that make someone relatable. They make the general public want to know more. They want to watch their TV programs, see their movies, follow them on social media, support their charities, buy their music or concert tickets, etc.

These types of special issues are not a surprise. A PR team can get a list of planned special issues 6-12 months in advance and advocate for their client to be included. They must know someone at the publisher. People is a sister publication to STARZ whore EW. They chose People to announce the fengagement, even if the editor assigned junior writers with no following.

Cait’s team and STARZ team are wasting her time and reputation getting a click bait writer to rush an article out about the fengagement in panic of a picture that was important and fun to see but not as big as others we’ve seen. Maybe they were worried about what else is out there.

Either way, I don’t know how they will help her out of this mess when their eye is on the wrong ball.

Her team is truly incompetent I have no words 🤦🏽‍♀️

“Claire… we’re in 1743.”

The words echoed in her head over and over again. 1743. She thought he must joking with her, but when she remembered the men in the woods and the castle-like room that she was currently in, she couldn’t help but think he might be right.

Spoiler paranoia is ruining pop culture

Spoiler paranoia is ruining pop culture:








literally is there a better example than this of the clickbait-industrial complex laying waste to craft….like no wonder the acting is so flat no one knows even the basic plot of the movie they’re filming 

On April 14, io9’s James Whitbrook published a large collection of stories the actors in Avengers: Endgame have shared on the film’s press tour, about just how little they actually understood about the movie they were making. Like … take this story from Brie Larson (who plays Captain Marvel), which ran in Inquirer:

I flew to Atlanta for my first day on Endgame. I had no idea what I was shooting, what the movie was. I didn’t know if anybody else was in a scene with me. I didn’t know anything.

And it’s not until you show up that you get your pages for the day. But you only get your part. So it was like a scene that was completely black redacted, and then just my one line. I’m very excited to talk about this once the movie is out, because I can’t give the details away.

And fans are surprised when characterization is inconsistent or nonsensical? They’re hiring award-winning talent and then filming them playing mad-libs instead of actively collaborating with their costars. 

Spoiler alert: spoilers make you enjoy stories more

Intuitively, killing the surprise seems like it should make a narrative less enjoyable. Yet research has found that having extra information about artworks can make them more satisfying, as can the predictability of an experience. 

Ok, yeah, no. Idk about anyone else but spoilers kill any joy to be had from something to me. Tension and mystique are pretty important elements in most stories, so having even some elements spoiled can ruin entire scenes or portions of a narrative.

Sucks what’s happening with Endgame but I am 100% convinced that some of these precautions saved us from having a lot of things spoiled rn and I’ll take clunky deliveries over having the entire work ruined thoroughly. Sorry not fucking sorry.

so you’ll take rote compromised filmmaking over the possibility of getting a rote comprised film spoiled for you? ok 

@afro-elf what do you think about this???

i agree. spoilers are ruining marvel movies, technically and experientially

take ragnarok and bp which have been described by actors as collaborative experiences where they knew and had equal control over their characters and stories as the directors and the results were movies that actually made sense and were good. i got ragnarok and black panther spoiled for me but that only made it more fun because i was looking forward to the things that were being spoiled. nothing that i’ve heard about endgame brings me any excitement, and the fact that the actors only just saw their work is like…. fucking insane. as someone who has been around actors i can tell you they do not Enjoy not being able to see themselves as they work
