Millennials are fat losers who don’t work and do nothing but hate women.
Speaking on the podcast ‘WTF with Marc Maron’ on Monday, Ridley Scott said he stands by his latest creation, which was released in mid-October, and has since generated only $28 million in revenue – a fraction of the $100 million funneled into its production. Nevertheless, he praised Disney for its “fantastic promotion job,” and “excellent” advertising and publicity.
The veteran filmmaker, whose career spans more than five decades, went on to lament that audiences today “were brought up on these f**king cell phones. The millennian [sic] do not ever want to be taught anything unless you are told it on the cell phone.” He added that he “learned very early on to be his own critic.”
‘The Last Duel’, starring Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Jodie Comer, is set in 14th-century France and centers around a knight, Jean, who throws down the gauntlet to his friend, after Jean’s wife tells him the other knight raped her.
From the film’s Wikipedia page:
The Last Duel is a 2021 epic historical drama film directed by Ridley Scott from a screenplay by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon, based on the 2004 book The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France by Eric Jager. Set in medieval France, the film stars Damon as Jean de Carrouges, a knight who challenges his friend, squire Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver) to a judicial duel after Jean’s wife, Marguerite (Jodie Comer), accuses Jacques of raping her. The events leading up to the duel are divided into three chapters, reflecting the perspectives of the three main characters. Affleck also stars in a supporting role as Count Pierre d’Alençon.
Marguerite and Jean’s marriage becomes strained by her failure to become pregnant. After meeting Jacques, Marguerite informs her friends she showed him kindness only to try and win court favor. When Jean leaves for Scotland, he orders her not to leave the castle or let anyone inside.
Jean’s mother takes all the servants with her on an errand despite Jean’s order. Jacques shows up with a servant who tricks Marguerite into letting them enter. Jacques chases Marguerite to her bedroom and violently rapes her. When Jean returns, Marguerite tells him what happened. Jean’s mother later warns Marguerite against bringing Jacques to trial.
She flirted with the alleged rapist, then disobeyed her husband and opened the door. Sounds like a textbook case of literally asking for it.
If Ridley Scott wanted the film to succeed, he should have made the rapist (played by Adam Driver) the main character, and the film about his corrective rape missions, raping all women who for any reason end up disobeying their husbands.
Or about Matt Damon’s character going on a revenge-rape rampage, first raping his wife for disobeying him, and then all of the females in Adam Driver’s character’s family.
Most men today understand, at least on a subconscious level, that women deserve to be raped.
We all see how women behave day to day. There’s just no way to make a connection between a movie set in a past where it is alleged that women were not complete sluts and the behavior of modern women today. Try to picture how a man who had his life destroyed by a fake rape accusation, divorce, child support, or the like, would even begin to relate to the idea of defending women’s honor in a fight to the death.
