Popcorn Culture - Supercut: Political Correctness

Every decade of filmmaking has its own mores and boundaries of what's acceptable, or okay to say and do. But in recent times. we've seen people revisiting some classics and pointing out some problematic storylines or behaviours, as well as major studios making a point to - at least on the surface - highlight diversity and inclusivity. But that hasn't come without pushback as well, particularly from longtime and deeply entrenched fans of certain IPs (ahem). What does all this mean for audiences, and fundamentally, has it made movies and shows better or worse? We get into this tricky subject.
