The Weinsteins will retain control of the Dimension label, which has produced a raft of films aimed at teenagers and children, including the Scream franchise = the really really really big money

five years pass...

The Weinstein Company and Miramax -- the studio the Weinstein brothers founded and then sold -- announced a gigantic partnership deal on Thursday (via The Hollywood Reporter), agreeing to create sequels of the smash hit films that the Weinsteins produced for the studio before starting their new production company.

A number of big films are set to see second installments added to their canon: 'Shakespeare In Love,' 'Bad Santa,' 'Swingers,' 'Rounders,' 'Bridget Jones's Diary,' are some of the most famous names to be in line for the part two treatment.

three years pass...

Just finished Peter Biskind's Down and Dirty Pictures: Miramax, Sundance, and the Rise of Independent Film. (Awful title.) Was actually published only a couple of months before the event that started this thread--he gives no indication that that's around the corner. Anyway, as someone who's mostly ignorant about the business end of things, I now know more about these people than I ever wanted to know, and I'm amazed a single movie ever gets made.

Lisa Bloom, one of Weinstein’s attorneys who specializes in sexual harassment cases, adds that she has been advising him on “gender and power dynamics” for the past year, calling him “an old dinosaur learning new ways.” She adds that she’s “explained to him that due to the power difference between a major studio head like him and most others in the industry, whatever his motives, some of his words and behaviors can be perceived as inappropriate, even intimidating.”

I think the email probably reflects the writer’s ideology just fine. She’s not young or naive she just thinks differently from people we’d usually think of as progressive. She probably sees, in Ashleigh Banfield, an image of privilege and thinks she’s “punching up” and that’s what you’re supposed to do.

treeship 2, Thursday, 18 January 2018 01:31 (three days ago) Permalink

The email is again indicative of Babe maybe not being a mature or credible publication for breaking stories on sexual assault, or perhaps not thinking through their material as much as their sources might require

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 18 January 2018 01:35 (three days ago) Permalink

Right. Banfield should have attacked the websote and the journalist in the first place, not “Grace” who is just someone who was mistreated (by Ansari) and then exploited (by Babe).

more than using "no holds barred" it bothers me that she used it incorrectly - you have a "no holds barred fight" it's not just a synonym for absolutely.

HLN sounds like a home shopping network (and I'm pretty sure that's what I assume it was when scanning cable guide listings)

All of the continued handling of this entire Aziz episode is super upsetting in comparison to what is going on with the gymnastics trial. I didn't know a young woman had committed suicide, another woman had told her parents as a child and was repeatedly denied that it had occurred and was forced to apologize to her assailant. Numerous people were told about him and nothing happened for years and years.

“what about the men” is useful as a macro or micro defense, as this makes plain

maura, Thursday, 18 January 2018 22:09 (three days ago) Permalink

"what about the men" comes from the same place as "well you know people are racist against whites too"

omar little, Thursday, 18 January 2018 22:11 (three days ago) Permalink

meaning, as a generalized sentiment coming from a place of privilege whenever the most reprehensible aspects (or any aspects tbh) of the privilege are pushed back against even slightly.

omar little, Thursday, 18 January 2018 22:12 (three days ago) Permalink

That's why I can't believe people have the nerve to heavily criticize the subject in the Babe article (nevermind the reporting problems) and why she didn't "just leave" all while they are reporting on the Nassar testimonies.

I am so glad The Root wrote that article "Men Understand Consent Like White America Understands Racism". I got into such a long discussion 2 nights ago with a young black dude who was glibbly victiming shaming that Babe article (it's slander!, like what, she was forced??? emoticon, Aziz just wanted to get some butt, he needs to work on his game) that he was blocked by friends on facebook. He just didn't get why and my friend kept making excuses for him saying he was liberal and a BLM activist. I was like, so? He literally kept making the same arguments that white people do to say they aren't racist and I just couldn't figure out a good way (me as a non-black woman) to point it out.

Bein' Sean Bean (LocalGarda), Thursday, 18 January 2018 23:43 (three days ago) Permalink

I tried to give him different perspectives with other articles (one from VSB), on how it was his response (calling her trash) that was problematic and not the actual disagreement of what occurred in the article, and he kept pushing the line that he has a lot of sex and knows a lot of women and it's unfathomable that Grace didn't just leave. She blew him, she didn't fight etc. etc. I lightly tried to bring up race in regards to woc especially being under other pressures of not wanting to report to the police and not wanting to place even more scrutiny on black men etc. He did not take well to that at all. But then I dropped it because I just really knew better than to bring it up since I am not black. I did post that article earlier today directly to our friend (who was his old coach) so hopefully he will take offline time to try to talk to him. But gah, even our friend kept making excuses for him (it's his age, he's a good guy, the other guys who blocked him are just as bad they were just showing off for their gfs, he has a warrior's heart??? (must be a football thing).
