Perhaps you have noticed: this blog is dedicated to the glory of Jesus Christ. I often have to remind myself of that, usually during weeks such as this past one, when others have been in need and I helped them because those are the acts of love which give glory to God and please Him; during those moments of stress, when I fret that I haven't gotten a new post up all week, I have to remind myself that it's in love that Jesus is served, not posting on movies, which I would much rather be doing. He brings you here to this site, not me. So, I ask your pardon, and your trust, that I was doing something of great importance for others, and I thank you for continually checking back to see if I had finally gotten a new post up and seeing that I hadn't, then coming back again to check, etc. Thank you. Really, I am nearly done with Cloud Atlas; I saw Silent Hill: Revelation and was very pleased with how that was structured (not necessarily that it was a good film, but the psychology and spiritual emphasis were important in the film).
And speaking of Obama, the newest trailer for GI Joe Retaliation has been released; rescheduled from debut this past summer to March 2013, this new trailer only has three words not contained in previous trailers but they are three important words:
Like Red Dawn being released this month, GI Joe Retaliation seemingly relies upon the invention of a new weapon; in the case of both films, I don't foresee a "new weapon" as much as a new means for socialism to reach people (please remember, in Red Dawn, it's the socialist country of North Korea invading America and in GI Joe Retaliation, the "redistribution of power" away from the world's capitals is the socialist goal of a one-government world where everyone is controlled like cattle by an agency like the KGB). What about the "president not being the president?" That may be encoded language for the suggestion that Obama is not a legitimate president, but only "appears" to be legitimate.
Redistribution of power may or may not be a part of this week's opener, but even after reading the synopsis, I am still not sure which way this film goes.
I have not, as of yet, seen the original, but here is the trailer for Despicable Me 2 (July 2013):
First, the "minions," because that is a "class term," used to describe people very low to lowest on the social ladder in terms of class, education and responsibility. We see three "classes" of minions in this trailer: the one wearing overalls (a hard laborer), the one dressed in gaudy golf gear (the minion with aspirations of breaking out of the class of minion because golf is a leisure game) and the maid minion. These three workers have been kid napped by an "alien ship," i.e., something "alien" to them. Note also the kind of vacuum the maid minion uses (towards the end of the trailer) which looks like post-World War II. The outdated vacuum "employed" by the maid in the big house (where the maid's employers don't buy updated equipment for the staff to use) might be a sign of class warfare/discrimination.

It reminds me of Men In Black III.
I have all ready spoken at length on the first trailer released for this film, and I will be building upon that in this post. Without a doubt, this film achieves a high level of political motivation; the question is, which way does it turn, towards the capitalists or the socialists? Again, as with Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, the nightmare that was the McCarthy 'Witch Hunts' for communists, makes the main plot line of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters to remind us of history's past attacks on America and how we have fought it off in the past, or (like Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters will start a witch hunt for capitalists; this is mentioned in the trailer above when Hansel tells Gretel, I don't think we're hunting witches, I think they're hunting us; again, the question is, which side of the economic debate does the film support and are Hansel and Gretel being hunted because they are capitalists (they are bounty hunters in the film, but that is ambiguous) or because they are socialists being hunted by the witches who are capitalists (like myself)?
What's my point?
