I've not watched it or any reviews yet, but the little I know makes it seem like a cheesy tweenie movie/novel with old pop/gaming references as a hipster lure.

So I never bothered looking further. Was that an appropriate call?

According to this the Nefarious One is spot on.

PS
What is Metrosexuality?

Am I missing something?

Every movie with this sort of theme came off like some grandpa was trying to figure out what was going on, added some mystic bullshit and then got every basic principle backwards or creatively wrong.

Not sure if this follows the established tradition.

"If your virtual avatar gets punched in the virtual reality simulation you will lose teeth. If your avatar's boolean setting for "active" is set to false you die in real world"

Refers to the effeminate-sounding guys who grew up in Leftist-run big cities & schools.

The ones who act like women and/or hipsters.

:lol:

Metrosexuals were the Neanderthal version of the Soyboy.

Chinese are having a laugh at Western soy boys, the desire of Western men to be something between a hurt child and a weak woman.

"Baizuo"


info wrote:
Tucker Carlson covers an article where Chinese political scientist Chenchen Zhang explains how the Chinese use the word Baizuo, literally meaning “white left,” to describe leftist SJWs in the West.

According to Zhang, the left is “biased, elitist, ignorant of social reality and constantly applying double standards. They only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment and have no sense of real problems in the real world. They tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism.”


Apparently the Chinese have had some interaction with them, too.

The term has also been used to refer to the double standards of the Western mainstream media, i.e. biased reporting on Islamist attacks in Xinjiang.[8]


That's Western media alright!
