The 2019 reboot/sequel of Charlie’s Angels just opened to a catastrophic $8 million, making it the fifth man-hating, woketard franchise to get wiped out at the box office.
Rock Angels Komedi terbaru Thailand yang bercerita tentang seorang remaja pria yang berdandan seperti wanita, tertarik dengan seorang wanita yang ditemuinya di sekolah. Kedekatan mereka pun menjadi seru dan banyak kejadian lucu yang menimpa mereka. A new Thai comedy which the story is about a man who dresses like a woman. Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul (Nickname: Baifern) is a Thai actress and model. She is best known for her lead role as Nam in the 2010 sleeper hit Crazy Little Thing Called Love with co-star Mario Maurer. She graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Arts from Srinakharinwirot University in 2015.
Angels, which was written and directed by Elizabeth Banks, is not only under-performing expectations by about 50 percent, it got run over by Ford v Ferrari, a movie about real men who throw punches and burn fossil fuels.
On top of being number one at the box office with a $30 million opening, Ford v Ferrari over-performed by about 50 percent.
Having seen and reviewed both, I can tell you that none of this has to do with gender.
Angels is a failure because it features unappealing actresses who are more interested in lecturing us than showing us a good time. The film’s trailers promised a pretentious feminist lecture full of man-hating… and the sexless movie delivered.
On the other hand, Ford v Ferrari looked like a great time at the movies, like an unpretentious underdog story with appealing characters you actually want to spend time with… and the movie delivered (and then some).
Charlie’s Angels is a poorly shot, poorly written, joyless death march of feminist talking points, poorly choreographed action scenes, starring three girls who have no charisma and even less chemistry together.
Charlie’s Angels wants you to feel bad about yourself, to feel guilty about being a man, for not being virtuous enough, and to divide us by lying to women about an oppressive patriarchy that doesn’t exist. GRRRRL POWER is not a theme, it’s a slogan, and Angels is a movie that confuses strident posturing with having something to say.
Ford v Ferrari is beautifully shot, rousing, inspiring, moving, funny, 100% American, and brilliantly acted. Using theme and appealing characters, it has much to say, not just about how conformity and corporatism crush the individual spirit, but about our shared human condition; that thing within all of us — men and women alike — to strive, to overcome, to be your own man at all costs — and yes, there is a cost… but yes, that cost is worth it.
But as I mentioned earlier, this has nothing to do with gender, and I can prove it… Here are two numbers that are not adjusted for nearly two decades of inflation: $40 million and $37.6 million.
All the way back in 2000, a movie based on the television show Charlie’s Angels and called Charlie’s Angels opened to $40 million. It would eventually gross $139 million domestic and $264 million worldwide (back when the international market was nowhere near as open as it is today).
All the way back in 2003, the sequel, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, opened to $37.6 million. It would eventually gross $101 million domestic and $260 million worldwide.
But here’s the difference… Samsung note 5 firmware 8.0.
The 2000 version of Charlie’s Angels somehow managed to drive home its empowerment and sisterhood message without dumpster-diving into misandry. And unlike this current trio of generic, androgynous, mall-girl angels, the 2000 version featured three sexy women: Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, and Lucy Liu, who didn’t apologize for being sexy, who used that power to convince us guys the movie was worth our time, and they delivered.
The goodwill from Charlie’s Angels (2000) was such that three years later the studio dropped $125 million into the sequel, and even though Full Throttle is pretty awful, it’s still more fun than this hideous 2019 reboot, which is why it was able to crawl over $100 million domestic, when that number really meant something.
And so, Charlie’s Angels (2019) is the fifth franchise the man-hating woketards have destroyed, the fifth golden goose strangled by these joyless and the artless harpies.
Charlie’s Angels (2019) excluded and demeaned men, told us we were not invited, so neither we nor the women who love us showed up, and now it’s the flop it deserves to be. Terminator: Dark Fate did the same: stridently pushed us out of the way because the future is female donchaknow, as did Ghostbusters, as did Men in Black.
And then there’s Star Wars…
Yeah, Star Wars is going to finish out its trilogy next month, and it will make a fortune, but afterwards that film franchise is doornail dead — as of right now there is nothing filming, nothing scheduled, not even a completed screenplay.
The man-hating of Last Jedi turned everyone off. Last Jedi under-performed bigtime, Solo tanked (Good God, a Star Wars movie tanked!), and now the greatest and most iconic movie franchise in history is… a TV show.
We don’t hate you Hollywood.
We’re just hating you back.
You started it.
And good luck with that new James Bond movie!

Genie/GMM Grammy (2004-present)
Big Ass is a Thai rock band. It was originally a pop rock band but the music moved toward hardcore punk in some of the band's recent works. During the band's early years until mid-2012, the band leading vocals was Ekkarat 'Dax' (or 'Dak') Wongchalard. Later half of 2012, Daycha 'Jeng' Konalo became the new leading vocals, replacing Ekkarat in EPDan Neramit, their seventh album released in April 2013. Their latest album is The Lion, the eighth album released in 2017.
Big Ass released their first album Not Bad in 1997 on the Music Bugs label. Their second and third albums, XL and My World, followed in 2000 and 2003. Big Ass won numerous awards for their work but attracted a rather limited[clarification needed] audience during their first three albums. It left Music Bugs to join the Genie Records label of GMM Grammy. Their fourth album Seven (signifying seven years in the music scene) was very successful in terms of awards and popularity. The album was recognized by both major music awards in Thailand: Season Awards, and Fat Awards(see Awards section below). Popularity-wise, they were also voted the most popular artist by fellow artists in Fat Awards No. 3 and nominated for the most popular group in 4th Channel [V] Thailand Music Video Awards. Their fifth full album was Begins with hit songs such as 'Kha Noi Somkhuan Tai' and 'Prom Li-Kit'.
Besides their studio albums, Big Ass has a song in the special album Wan Fa Mai (วันฟ้าใหม่) celebrating New Year released around the end of 2005. The song 'Rao' (เรา) on the album was performed by Big Ass together with Bodyslam.
In 2008, an original soundtrack for Thai movie Pid Term Yai Hua Jai Wawun (ปิดเทอมใหญ่ หัวใจว้าวุ่น, also known as Hormones) featured Big Ass. The band also appeared in the film as themselves playing the song 'Kon Tai' (ก่อนตาย) in a pub.
In 2011, the band's guitarist-backing vocalist Poonsak Jaturaboon sang in the original soundtrack Tum Yu Nai Jai (ทุ้มอยู่ในใจ) for the film SuckSeed. Ekarat Wongchalard also appeared as himself in the movie.
In July 2012, the band revealed on Facebook that the long-time leading vocalist Ekarat Wongchalard would leave the band due to his music work reaching saturation. Daycha Konarlo appeared as the band's new leading vocalist on their single 'Dan Neramit' (แดนเนรมิต), which was released in August 2012. The second single 'Thao Thi Mi' (เท่าที่มี) was released in October 2012. The singles were made available through iTunes. The EP Dan Neramit was released in April 2013. Ekarat later joined Rock Rider team producing TV shows about rock music and travel on big bike. Ekarat released a solo Khon Tai Thi Hai Jai (คนตายที่หายใจ) with Rock Rider (consisting of Dak, Silly Fools, Airborne) in 2014.
In 2014, Big Ass performed an original soundtrack Ab Nam Ron (อาบน้ำร้อน) for the TV series Hormones the Series (season 2).
In 2017, they released their latest album The Lion.
Origins of the name
Student Weekly: The name of your band is a bit naughty. How did you come up with the name Big Ass?
Dax: Actually when we were students we used so many different names to book studio time that the owner would get confused if we were the same band. So we wanted to find a unique name to represent our band. When we looked around, the first thing that caught our attention was an ass. It seemed firm and sturdy just like rock music, the music we like. And we didn’t want just a normal ass, so we named the band Big Ass.

Rock Angel Thai Movie Cast
In the news
Ekarat Wongcharat, the leading vocal of Big Ass, made the headlines when a 17 year old men's magazine model nicknamed 'Fai' appeared with her baby 'Justin' and claimed that Wongcharat was the baby's father on February 2006. Allegedly they had sex when Fai was 16 years old, meaning that Wongcharat would be a child sex offender if the accusation was true. Wongcharat was subsequently arrested and released on bail on 27 February. While Wongcharat gave his blood sample for DNA testing in March, Fai and Justin did not give theirs until early May. On 10 May 2006 police announced that the result was negative. A retest performed by Khunying Pornthip Rojanasunand drew the same conclusion. Even through he is not the child's father, the trial for the underage sex offense remained. The trial began on 13 February 2007 and the court decision was announced on 21 March 2007. He received two years of a suspended sentence and must produce two anti-drug songs as pledged by the singer in exchange for a light sentence.
