Kabar Medsos – CinemaBlend’s review of Pixar’s first feature-length film directed by an Asian woman was pulled offline after being called “sexist” and “racist” by members of the press.

“Turning Red” cast members spoke up in support of the new Pixar film and its universality following a controversial review for the animated movie that was published by CinemaBlend. The review was pulled offline after being called “sexist,” “racist” and more by members of the press. CinemaBlend managing director Sean O’Connell wrote the review, saying that the film’s appeal was limited because it’s set in the Asian community of Toronto.

“I recognized the humor in the film, but connected with none of it. By rooting ‘Turning Red’ very specifically in the Asian community of Toronto, the film legitimately feels like it was made for [director] Domee Shi’s friends and immediate family members,” O’Connell wrote in the since-pulled review. “Which is fine — but also, a tad limiting in its scope.”

O’Connell doubled down on his opinion of the film in a since-deleted tweet that accompanied his review. The post read: “Some Pixar films are made for universal audiences. ‘Turning Red’ is not. The target audience for this one feels very specific and very narrow. If you are in it, this might work very well for you. I am not in it. This was exhausting.”


Pemeran ‘Turning Red’ merespons setelah ulasan kontroversial ditarik secara offline

Kabar Medsos – Ulasan CinemaBlend tentang film panjang pertama Pixar yang disutradarai oleh seorang wanita Asia ditarik offline setelah disebut “seksis” dan “rasis” oleh anggota pers.

Anggota pemeran “Turning Red” angkat bicara mendukung film Pixar baru dan universalitasnya menyusul ulasan kontroversial untuk film animasi yang diterbitkan oleh CinemaBlend. Ulasan ditarik offline setelah disebut “seksis,” “rasis” dan lebih banyak lagi oleh anggota pers. Direktur pelaksana CinemaBlend Sean O’Connell menulis ulasan, mengatakan bahwa daya tarik film itu terbatas karena berlatar komunitas Asia di Toronto.

“Saya mengenali humor dalam film itu, tetapi tidak terhubung sama sekali. Dengan rooting ‘Turning Red’ secara khusus di komunitas Asia di Toronto, film ini secara sah terasa seperti dibuat untuk teman [sutradara] Domee Shi dan anggota keluarga dekat,” tulis O’Connell dalam ulasan yang ditarik. “Yang baik-baik saja — tetapi juga, sedikit membatasi ruang lingkupnya.”

O’Connell menggandakan pendapatnya tentang film tersebut dalam tweet yang telah dihapus yang menyertai ulasannya. Postingan itu berbunyi: “Beberapa film Pixar dibuat untuk penonton universal. ‘Mengubah Merah’ tidak. Target audiens yang satu ini terasa sangat spesifik dan sangat sempit. Jika Anda termasuk di dalamnya, ini mungkin bekerja sangat baik untuk Anda. Saya tidak di dalamnya. Ini melelahkan.”
