and exactly how are ppl exploiting nerds in "Sorcerer's Apprentice, Scott Pilgrim v The World, this reboot of Spider-man, Thor films, Black Adam, etc?"
i guess the better question is, whats your definition of "exploitation"? you need to define it b/c i dont get what youre trying to say.
the movies you listed were also mainstream releases which were geared towards the general audience. nerds were trendy the past couple of years. "exploitation films" are usually geared towards a very specific audience (i.e. ppl who like zombie cannibals from space)
what about all of those childrens movies that come out all over the place like shrek (and its multiple sequels). is that "childs-ploitation"?
what about the Christmas and Halloween movies that are released every year? is that "holiday-sploitation"?
b/c if "nerdsploitation" is a real thing, (by your examples) then all those retarded SAW sequels are "holiday-sploitation" films that are just cashing in on people who want to see a horror movie on Halloween.
why should someone be outraged by that?
i agree with pootietang (that sounds funny outloud). blaxploitation movies are awesome. there's nothing wrong with "Exploitation films" as a whole. some of them have some racist characters or whatnot, but so can any genre. just because it has the word "exploitation" doesnt mean its malicious.
Blaxploitation is what introduded the word somethingxploitation..
it is not named like that cause it was a good thing..no it was named exploitation because , for afro american actors to act, be actors, they had to keep on playing these stereotypical roles. there was no escaping it.
But the community turned it around and these cats in these movies turned in to hood heroes..
but dont say its all good, just cause you like the movies..think.
