“Space Jam” has “Clockwork Orange” cameo, but no Pepe Le Pew

While Pepe Le Pew was deemed too problematic for the new “Space Jam” movie, the Droogs from “A Clockwork Orange” are apparently fine. For those who aren’t familiar with the film, it involves a gang of young reprobates who go around raping women.

i cant imagine feeling strongly about this in any way. it a cameo in the background flooded with other cameos and the exclusion of a cartoon skunk. i alaways thought both the lola bunny costume change + pepe being left out for "wokeness" was just to drum up controversy.
Ive never understood the obsession with movies like A Clockwork Orange. Especially by people who claim to be feminists, or liberal minded(genuinely liberal minded, not modern white liberalism). And when ever they're confronted its always some shit about how theres a ~bigger message~ or some shit., sorry. Its edgy 4chan tier humor and entertainment. Same for American Psycho and Lolita etc. You can say the books are better and less offensive all you want but you still love having the icons on LJ from the film adaptations and are fans of the actors and post gifs from the films. Bottom of the barrel titillation for people who want to be entertained by violence, misogyny and out right sexual assault. Just call it what it is and stop with the MUH ART excuses.

while i am kinda looking forward to this film (in the cheesy, I loved the original Space Jam so much as a kid that the video tape wore out)... i really wish they hadn't gone for the whole ready player one thing of shoving rememberberries into EVERY scene.

there's no need for the iron giant to be in this film. no need for the clockwork orange gang of droogs. all it is there for is for millennials, gen z and gen x to be like "OMG I REMEMBER THAT!!!" and for warner bros. to try and pretend they have a cinematic universe on the same level as disney or universal or whatever.

i read an article around the time toy story 4 came out, about how the writer took her 7 y/o daughter to the film and she was rather bored by it. of course that's just the writer's interpretation of her daughter's reaction, but i did agree with her to some extent that pixar made bank with toy story 3, stroking the nostalgia of young adults who grew up with the first two films... and they went for that with toy story 4, somewhat ignoring the audience of current children who also want a film to be nostalgic about in 20 years. not something that's nostalgic for current 25-30 year olds.

also uh. somebody on twitter also pointed out that the director is the guy behind the worst scary movie (scary movie 5) so D:
I fucking hate this shitty movie, but a cameo is not the same as a character who is part of the plot
