About

Welcome to whatwentrightwith.com a website with alternative views on popular culture. This site reviews movies, albums, and TV shows but instead of blanket flattery and obsequiousness, it praises artistic bravery.

In a time of false idols and mainstream grovellers, it’s important to sort the wheat from the celebrity chaff. This site separates the real from the fake and the talented from the talentless. It’s fine to admire a celebrity but only if they show a gift for their chosen medium. If someone from the world of popular culture has shown a flair for their art you’ll find them here, if someone has created a genuine classic, something memorable and truly entertaining, you’ll find it here.

Like it’s sister-site, this website has zero-tolerance for mediocre and overrated film, television, and music, hack celebrities, nepotism, bullies, racists, sexists, homophobes, xenophobes, warmongers, militarists, royalists, classists, propagandists, not to mention celebrity fawners, attention-seekers, sellouts, and bigot sympathisers and apologists. If you’re wondering why your comment was deleted or why you’ve been blocked it’s most likely because you fall into these latter categories.

Remember:

  • We need to stop worshipping celebrities, politicians, royals, and forefathers

  • We need to question what is truly worthy of praise in order to halt the dull and conventional

  • Not every piece of mainstream entertainment is a “classic”

  • Not everybody is a “genius”

  • Doing a certain job does not automatically make someone a “hero”

  • Nobody (dead or alive) is infallible regardless of their level of fame, class, rank, job, race, gender, generation etc.

  • Wearing a suit does not warrant respect and wearing tattered clothes doesn’t warrant disrespect

  • Having a title or wealth does not make someone important

  • Profit isn’t an indication of quality

  • Living in a certain country does not make its people special

  • Exceptionalism should be stopped, equality should be achieved

  • People should always stick up for the people being oppressed, even if that’s not your demographic

  • An equivalent reaction is sometimes needed. Being bigoted to a bigot is an appropriate response

The only way we can turn the tide against the sycophantic media, a mundane mainstream, and mediocre celebrities is by the promotion and consumption of the finest art.
