Great! I get to give a rant on McLuhan.
Here is part of the best one by nikola6
Edward (Pattinson) looks like a staid, kind of bored married husband and Bella (Stewart) looks as if she spends a lot of time with the hair police getting just the right look NOT of bouffant.
Now Jacob! Wow! He's got his six-pack like the good ol boy to come American male is supposed to have, eh? All well fed on good red beef, tanned, and buff, man, buff. The image that Scummit wants to portray in their male stars. (Jake in Source Code was all buff.) Scummit wants to continue being a playa after Twilight is over. Reminder: Scummit was on the abyss of bankruptcy when they got and did Twilight. It was just about their swan song. And then! Rob and Kristen built the house that is now called Scummit! What do ya know!
The poster is ostensibly about promoting Breaking Dawn. The message is that we are gonna continue with Taylor and the real American male films for swooning girls. Yes Taylor is the most savvy of the three. The most financial short term savvy one of the three. But he has cloned himself from the spontaneous, adorable boy into a handsome version of Stallone. It won't work Taylor. Not for very long. That day is over now. You are too late to the party. And Scummit is woefully lacking in any kind of vision or real artistic talent spotters on anything to do more than use up their cachet from Twilight and disappear.
Who from the 40's and 50's would ever have thought MGM would go on the block, or WB or Paramount? Hollywood as it was known is over folks. Over. As in O - V - E - R!
