Holy tamales vup!

Those were some good title ideas indeed!

From: cj , 16 months, post #83
Thanks for that link Air Gear. Someone needs a raise for those.

Well played, Air Gear. Well played. (slowly raises eyebrow)

I think I remember marquises from the long distant past doing things with certain other movies but my google-fu is not up to snuff right now. I do remember some stories about people "vandalizing" marquises by switching letters around. I think somewhere in or near Palm Springs "Time After Time" became "F*ck After F*ck". Crude but people appreciated it more than the theater owners did, I'm sure.

Also, let's face it: everyone knows Nancy Drew is a total slut. Not that that's a bad thing but, seriously, use some birth-control if you're gonna be like that. I'm not judging.

sorry <:-[

That was weird. That was weird.

What just happened.

From: Air Gear , 16 months, post #86
There's one marquee I've seen before which I couldn't find which read like this.

WHAT WOMEN WANT
SNATCH

"What just happened."

Digital Gremlins... welcome to the future. :-)

Official website, so we're good for rights.

cj, about the future, how's your time looking to look at something I occasionally ask you to look at. Definitely want your opinion on it one day. We have the general 'as a comic generally POV' underway. As this site's such a good source of traffic, though we're wondering if there's any optimization we can do based on feedback ...

Can we please keep this thread on topic.
These posts about marquee mixups have nothing to do with the transformation community.

From: Air Gear , 16 months, post #90
Not true. The transformation of Brad Pitt into someone who totally incapable of murdering the English language in Snatch is a wonder to behold.

... er totally incapable of NOT murdering the English language (it's catching!)

From: guest , 16 months, post #92
Ok hopefully this thread stays on topic this time.

First the movie has been renamed (Re)Assignment. It is not the best name but I guess it was an upgrade to the other one.

Second if you live in or near Toronto you can watch it next month at the Toronto movie festival.

Plus I saw at a German film festival Michelle Rodriguez won best actress for the movie which is a good sign.

Ok I just went on Twitter and looked up this film. A lot of the Trans community is saying this film is disgusting and never should of been made. They plan on boycotting the film. I don't see the problem with it. It's a fantasy/sci fi movie. I don't think people boycotted Face/Off when it came out.

Welcome to progressive/PC hypocrisy.

From: guest (guessed) , 16 months, post #95
"Welcome to progressive/PC hypocrisy."

Okay, guest # 93 is talking abut something on TWITTER. Hir post may as well have read "I was listening to a bunch of people shouting at each other across a busy intersection and it seemed like some of them were angry about something."

That said so here some issues with the movie:

A medical procedure which many trans people think ought to treated the same way we treat the correction of a cleft palate is (apparently) depicted as a kind of torture.

The details of gender reassignment procedures are (by the reports of some who have seen the movie and/or read the script) absurdly misrepresented and portrayed as an act of violence.

A ciswoman was hired to play a transwoman.

Why these are triggers for trans-folk, and why the "its only a movie: argument doesn't win:

"Sex change surgery", and the associated gender confirming medical interventions that trans people may seek, are expensive, difficult to find, and controversial. For transfolk, any shock/horror depiction of GRS is discouraging.

As far as I have seen, no transperson is asking for the film to be banned. No transperson is asking for the rights of free speech and creative expression of those who wrote, directed, and appeared in the film to be abridged. Some transpeople are exercising their right to speak by protesting what they see as a defamatory and regressive representation of transpeople and the medical professionals who serve the trans population.

Cis actors playing trans characters is tricky. It isn't quite the same thing as blackface, but it is a lost opportunity for trans actors. Trans actors playing trans characters -- it is hoped -- helps to normalize the fact of being trans. How it would have worked in this movie, is an interesting question,

The plot actually flips the TG narrative. Pre-op, the characters is congruent. Post-op the character could (presumably) be described as dysphoric. Except for the physical aspects of character I am not are that putting a trans actor in that role makes a lot of sense

IIRC, while some transfolks rolled their eyes, "The Skin I live In" did't excite the any kind of outrage. Part of that is that Almodovar has been pretty sympathetic to trans characters in previous movies. Part of it was that the script was pretty good and the portrayal of the transformation was -- while not realistic -- carried of with some verisimilitude and just enough science-fictional magic-technology to plaster over the larger gaps in credibility.

Also, the earlier film came out before twitter was treated as the same thing as journalism.

But, since stuff written by strangers on the internet seems to matter; as a politically progressive transperson, and speaking for all other politically progressive transpeople, I hear-by officially give you permission to watch and -- if it is to your taste -- enjoy (Re)Assignment.

Since the movie's IMDB page now uses the updated name, I am changing this thread's title to reflect such.

Old Title:
New movie "Tomboy" ["Tomboy, a Revenger's Tale" (2017)

From: Air Gear , 16 months, post #97
Well, how about that. We talk about a different title and it gets one.

This one actually is better (I'm very reluctant to believe 'revenger' is a word, for starters).

From: guest , 16 months, post #98
I'm pretty true this film won't contain any form of metamorphose, I would rather see the post locked. Every time it gets a new comment makes me annoyed at how it turned out. Now can we focus on films with actual transformations in, rather then surgical body horror?

From: guest , 16 months, post #99
I'd say that any kind of physical change or transformation is a metamorphosis. Horror isn't ruled out. Just MHO

And Thank you, Air Gear! It always bugs ME when people can't get the difference between revenge and avenge. Just my grammar not-see acting up.

The purpose of this Message Board is discuss transformation content or topics AND topics or content that would be of interest to the transformation community.

Since this movie deals with what could be defined as a forced gender change, it is of interest to several members of our community.

As horribly insulting or even damaging to the transgender and medical communities as it sounds to be, it is still qualified for inclusion as a topic for discussion here.
