@Tylaris1 you know a lot of people aren’t talking about the trump story right now. However you are the only one bringing that up and it makes me think about how often the people who look into this look at both sides. I also believe blaze TV had some strong words to say about this situation and , while I definitely don’t agree with everything they said and I also feel that they were very slow to get to the point , a good chunk of what they said has some merit. I strongly implore anyone reading this comment to look into what I just typed and to keep bringing this up when Phil talks about it so that everyone at least knows about this. I know I will comment it on his next video when he does. Also I’m not taking sides, I just want as much info as possible.

Ugly Garbage Boy He was spamming the comments of a Jenna Marbles video a while ago telling people to go watch his video if him “fucking my dog” “having rough sex with my dog” and stuff. Each comment either had a “haha” or LOL in it

Phil!, There is a huge problem going on right now with a college kid who went against the "anti-white" professor of his school. ISmind is making him take down his videos, I highly suggest you take a look into this matter. If you can't access them, his name is Michael Moreno.

I'd like to see how a dead James Dean would work out in a movie. I'm not saying it has to be good, but what if they do a great job? Let's wait and see what happens before we jump to conclusions. And, for the record, I've never seen a movie with James Dean and have no opinion about him at all. Mostly, it's nothing worth caring about...

Industries like acting are already a major in circle club type of deal where it is very difficult to get into them BECAUSE why would a director cast you a nobody, and sell a few tickets when they could cast the Rock and sell millions, Adding the possibility of casting the biggest stars posthumously would only make that worse.

If they were using James Dean's image to make a CGI movie OF James Dean, it would be okay, but they are definitely exploiting him. Just like you shouldn't be able to do things with a body after somebody's death, you shouldn't be able to "make them do" something that they haven't already done. They're not just using his image. They're creating a whole new movie that he never consented to making. Consent is everything in all situations.

I wish that Hollywood would leave dead people alone... CGI will strip James Dean of what made him special; his raw emotionality and authenticity. In my opinion, the technology isn’t even close to capturing true humanity.

I’m fine with the CGI actor thing. They aren’t doing shit to his corpse, if it even exists any more. They’re just doing CGI of a person that looks like James Dean. They just want to say STARRING JAMES DEAN to sell some tickets, it’s the same thing as using a normal celebrity, but you couldn’t get the actual person because their dead, so you CGI them in.

the CGI thing is gross. that means actors will now have to compete with the dead for rolls. Also the actors that they will use are legendary actors and if the studio puts them in a bad movie it can ruin the actors reputation and they couldn't consent to the movie

I don't have a problem with the idea of using CGI to create deceased actors to play certain roles, as long as it makes sense. If James Dean had been a strong activist during the Vietnam war, I could see the merit in including him as an honor to his beliefs and efforts. But they really just slapped him in there for his name, and for the publicity that doing so would bring. Not to mention save money on hiring a real actor to play the role. It's a blatant corner cut done solely to save money and create publicity, so no matter what they've already won really, and that's a fucking shame.
LightishRedGummi - 2 dögum síðan
if you're so set on having a character in a movie look like a dead actor, you should either suck it up and deal with what you've got or make the movie animated and have the look of the character be inspired by the dead actor you were wanting

I think the impeachment is a crap show. The Dems wanted the Mueller report to be the definitive source of impeachment. They didn't get it and so they found something else. Why do I think this? How much of the Mueller hearings are we talking about or occurring?

I heard some things that a number of youtube channels could be taken down because they're not making money due to youtube is changing its TOS. I'm not entirely sure if it's true, but it is a scary thought and I'm worried for a number of people who are trying to make a name for themselves.

The people that should really be chiming in on this are YouTubers that have kids. Preferably busy parents that also have to work at crappy real jobs. The big YouTubers that can stay at home with their kids, have more money (for things like babysitting) don't have as much credibility. That said, YouTube could solve a big portion of the problem by putting more parental controls on YouTube. Right now it is pretty much restricted mode on/off. This can easily be turned on/off by a child. YouTube kids has horrible content that nobody wants to watch - unless maybe you are 2 years old. Kids want to watch gaming videos, Blippi and believe it or not regular videos such as Mentos & Diet Coke for example. There are many videos that show up in restricted mode that are not kid friendly. Since they are so big into AI and not having real human Google employees do anything, perhaps users could voluntarily tag videos if they have violence, swearing or are not suitable for kids. The biggest problem is videos that are disguised to look kid friendly (to parents) but you may find disturbing content on it 5 minutes into it. It's a mess. If you have kids don't even get them started on technology. Get them an old 80's computer or old Nintendo and hide your phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers and only use them when they are asleep. If you can accomplish this as a parent, you are a rare breed or perhaps Amish.

I was brought up around cursing and certain dark,comedic language so I know how to take a joke but I also knew (as a child) what not to say in front of adults&how to act. It helped me assimilate with the real world. I believe when you shelter kids too much, they end up with shock when they get into the real world, they don't know how to deal with everything and they end up with mental illnesses. Not saying that they didn't have it before, they may have. Just saying that sheltering kids exasperates certain conditions.

They are right that CGI is not acting, it's animation. Animated movies are a thing. Although obviously the problem is using someone's likeness when they can't consent. To me, it would make sense for someone to own their likeness like they would any other copyright.
Olivia Coleman
Olivia Coleman - 3 dögum síðan
Okay, besides the fact that James Dean cannot consent to being in this movie, there’s also, ya know, everything that surrounded his death. There was so much bad energy around it, and that damn Porsche Spider killed not just him, but like four other people. This movie, once it goes into production, is doomed.
