This movie seems pretty relevant and focuses on a police shooting. Comes out next month too. It also features Denzel Washington's son as a Black cop who is conflicted over this.

Man, Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughan and S. Craig Zahler have a real circle jerk of ugly, brutal, hateful movies going for them. horsefeathers these guys:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/mel-gibso ... ref=scroll

Making its world premiere in Venice, Dragged Across Concrete’s premise is as follows: a pair of detectives, Brett Ridgeman (Mel Gibson) and Anthony Lurasetti (Vince Vaughn) are caught on tape applying excessive force to a Hispanic prisoner in handcuffs, in the form of Ridgeman grinding his boot into the man’s neck until it emits a cracking sound. (During the bust, Ridgeman and Lurasetti also mock a scared, naked Latina suspect, claiming they can’t understand what she’s saying due to her accent. Both scenes are played for laughs.) With the tape destined to go viral, Ridgeman and Lurasetti are suspended for six weeks without pay, though the chief of police (Don Johnson) is sympathetic to their plight, delivering a rambling sermon about how being branded a “racist” today is akin to getting labeled a “communist” in the 1950s—or, to quote the president, this is a WITCH HUNT! and these two violent cops are the real victims.

Though a six-week suspension seems like a mild punishment, especially considering this is the third time Ridgeman’s been busted for using excessive force, he is in desperate need of cash. You see, his wife Melanie (Laurie Holden) has MS and his daughter is bullied by black kids on her four-block trek to school. Worried that those same black kids will rape their daughter once she matures, they vow to move to a better neighborhood (presumably one with less black people). “I never thought I was a racist until living in this area,” Melanie says, her husband nodding in agreement. So Ridgeman cooks up a plan to rob an out-of-town crook, and ropes in Lurasetti with a Forgotten Man spiel: “I don’t politic, I don’t change with the times,” he explains, lamenting how that matters more in today’s world than “good, honest hard work.”

Nope. I didn't understand at first. If I find an image is too large then I know how to re-format it and/or shrink it. It's pretty easy and doesn't take that long.

The easiest solution is just right-clicking on it and select "Search Google for image" and finding a smaller size.

And maybe people would rather see the full size pic. It ain't hurting anything to use the spoiler tags.

seems like taking the first pic you see and putting it in spoiler if large is much easier than searching for more

They're both pretty easy. I just didn't know people use the spoiler feature to shrink images and that's why I was confused. I honestly missed the spoiler for size part.

Rumor is that Henry Cavill may be hanging up the cape. A deal fell through to get him to cameo in Shazam cuz of scheduling issues, and now he's cast as the lead in the Netflix series of The Witcher, DC wants to pivot to using Supergirl insted of Superman in the DCU...so that may be it for Cavill.

I have not seen a single Henry Cavill Superman appearance, outside of memes.

Kind of proud.

And Michael B. Jordan is rumored to replace him. The racists/anti-SJW brigade's hair is already on fire. "Why not cast Nicholas Cage as Martin Luther King Jr., too, DUUURRRRRR"
