    • @Tylaris1 you know a lot of people aren’t talking about the trump story right now. However you are the only one bringing that up and it makes me think about how often the people who look into this look at both sides. I also believe blaze TV had some strong words to say about this situation and , while I definitely don’t agree with everything they said and I also feel that they were very slow to get to the point , a good chunk of what they said has some merit. I strongly implore anyone reading this comment to look into what I just typed and to keep bringing this up when Phil talks about it so that everyone at least knows about this. I know I will comment it on his next video when he does. Also I’m not taking sides, I just want as much info as possible.

  • I'd like to see how a dead James Dean would work out in a movie. I'm not saying it has to be good, but what if they do a great job? Let's wait and see what happens before we jump to conclusions. And, for the record, I've never seen a movie with James Dean and have no opinion about him at all. Mostly, it's nothing worth caring about...

  • If they were using James Dean's image to make a CGI movie OF James Dean, it would be okay, but they are definitely exploiting him. Just like you shouldn't be able to do things with a body after somebody's death, you shouldn't be able to "make them do" something that they haven't already done. They're not just using his image. They're creating a whole new movie that he never consented to making. Consent is everything in all situations.

  • I wish that Hollywood would leave dead people alone... CGI will strip James Dean of what made him special; his raw emotionality and authenticity. In my opinion, the technology isn’t even close to capturing true humanity.

  • I’m fine with the CGI actor thing. They aren’t doing shit to his corpse, if it even exists any more. They’re just doing CGI of a person that looks like James Dean. They just want to say STARRING JAMES DEAN to sell some tickets, it’s the same thing as using a normal celebrity, but you couldn’t get the actual person because their dead, so you CGI them in.

  • the CGI thing is gross. that means actors will now have to compete with the dead for rolls. Also the actors that they will use are legendary actors and if the studio puts them in a bad movie it can ruin the actors reputation and they couldn't consent to the movie

  • I don't have a problem with the idea of using CGI to create deceased actors to play certain roles, as long as it makes sense. If James Dean had been a strong activist during the Vietnam war, I could see the merit in including him as an honor to his beliefs and efforts. But they really just slapped him in there for his name, and for the publicity that doing so would bring. Not to mention save money on hiring a real actor to play the role. It's a blatant corner cut done solely to save money and create publicity, so no matter what they've already won really, and that's a fucking shame.

  • The people that should really be chiming in on this are ISprojectrs that have kids. Preferably busy parents that also have to work at crappy real jobs. The big ISprojectrs that can stay at home with their kids, have more money (for things like babysitting) don't have as much credibility. That said, ISproject could solve a big portion of the problem by putting more parental controls on ISproject. Right now it is pretty much restricted mode on/off. This can easily be turned on/off by a child. ISproject kids has horrible content that nobody wants to watch - unless maybe you are 2 years old. Kids want to watch gaming videos, Blippi and believe it or not regular videos such as Mentos & Diet Coke for example. There are many videos that show up in restricted mode that are not kid friendly. Since they are so big into AI and not having real human Google employees do anything, perhaps users could voluntarily tag videos if they have violence, swearing or are not suitable for kids. The biggest problem is videos that are disguised to look kid friendly (to parents) but you may find disturbing content on it 5 minutes into it. It's a mess. If you have kids don't even get them started on technology. Get them an old 80's computer or old Nintendo and hide your phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers and only use them when they are asleep. If you can accomplish this as a parent, you are a rare breed or perhaps Amish.

  • I was brought up around cursing and certain dark,comedic language so I know how to take a joke but I also knew (as a child) what not to say in front of adults&how to act. It helped me assimilate with the real world. I believe when you shelter kids too much, they end up with shock when they get into the real world, they don't know how to deal with everything and they end up with mental illnesses. Not saying that they didn't have it before, they may have. Just saying that sheltering kids exasperates certain conditions.

There was so much bad energy around it, and that damn Porsche Spider killed not just him, but like four other people. This movie, once it goes into production, is doomed.

  • Why am I the only one that finds it tyrannically unjust and insanity for the FTC to go after content creators for the ADs Google puts on their content? How does creating content violate the COPPA act when the COPPA is about preventing the harvesting of personal information from children. Not Content creator is DOING THAT! GOOGLE is the one doing that, NOT the content creators. Punishing content creators for the ads that Google puts on their content is the same thing as pushing the guy who paved the road because bank robbers drove on it. Is this still America where innocent people are not unjustly punished or are we now living in North Korea?

  • Regarding James Dean, this is absolutely wrong & beyond disgusting. 8 billion people in this world & they can’t fold the right LIVING person to play the role??? JD would NOT have wanted this.. he would have wanted other young male actors or even female actors to get a chance to start their career. This is wrong. No one would want this...for technology to take away jobs & job opportunities from LIVING beings. This is an affront to acting, to art, & to this country- no. The world. Technology is already replacing human beings at an alarming rate. This should NOT be allowed.what if we used your past videos to make NEW PHILIPDEFRANCO content WITHOUT YOU. Would you be ok with it then? Whether you are dead or alive??? Please know that this is an atrocity & I am STRONGLY against it. Any living young man could play the role & start or continue to propel his career forward. This is just not right. Nope. Just no.
