Trailers: Ted 2, Hitman Agent 47, The Secret Life Of Pets, Zootopia, Hotel Transylvania 2

This poster, really says it all: to indulge in drugs, and to want them legalized, is our "animal appetites" talking (Ted is a bear--i.e., an animal--and he doesn't discipline himself ever in anything he does). But Ted isn't just an animal, he's also a fake animal: teddy bears don't exist in reality, only as toys. We can say then, that the idea of a talking, teddy bear who does drugs is the kind of make-believe utopia that exists for liberals wanting drugs legalized and thinking no harm is going to come from them. What Ted seems to be pointing to, however, is that the kind of people wanting drugs legalized are exactly the kind of people who, all ready having bad behavior, will have even worse behavior because they do drugs and then it will be legal. Illegal drugs is the way that society protects itself from stupid people who follow their stupidity into the realm of drugs.
Ted 2 opens this weekend, and we can probably expect a big opening, as in, it's going to make a ton of money; why? To begin with, it's easy, accessible humor that lots of people find funny so they will go to this type of film to "escape" into "mindless" entertainment. However, humor always encodes some kind of message, and sometimes, humor is the only mechanism that can encode serious discussion of serious topics, which is why a film such as Ted 2 is important:
People who tend to enjoy humor of this caliber generally avoid politics and discussion of deeper, more meaningful topics in life; Ted 2, and films in its genre, communicate important (but encoded) topics in its narrative that the audience normally would try and escape from, such as, doing something to a stranger, then discovering they are blind, and blaming it on your five-year-old son. Only a five-year-old would have behaved like that, so we know that Ted, as an animal, has NOT had a good influence on John (Wahlberg). The plot of the film, the central conflict, is proving that Ted is human so he can be the father of the child he and "wife" Tami-Lynn want to have together. Why is this important? As we have discussed, and will continue doing so in this post with additional trailers below, the Liberal Left is dead-set on making people believe that we are animals, that we have not been created in the image of God and that we do not have a soul; this is an imperative platform for socialism because the State can't compete with God, it wants to replace God, and that means replacing Christian morality with socialist theories, which leads us to our next trailer, Hitman: Agent 47.
This trailer makes Agent 47 far more sympathetic than did the first trailer. Throw in that the lead female is also an agent, and the events this trailer adds seems to make an entirely different film,... "seems" to make a different film is the key. I am still confident, at this point, this is going pro-socialist, and this is why: several scenes invoke Kahn (Benedict Cumberbatch) from Star Trek Into Darkness and attempts to turn his socialist symbol around. In capitalism, and specifically America, it's our cultural heritage and identity to strive to be the very best that we can be in any field we participate in. What separates the agents? They are strong and intelligent, they were produced by a corporation (which was revealed in the synopsis) and the Left is using these agents as a metaphor for Americans in general, and wouldn't it be better if we could just live without having to strive to be so amazing all the time? The film looks interesting from the trailers, but I don't think the film itself will be so good. On basically the same note, here is the first trailer for Zootopia:
What is so liberal about this is it starts out with the premise that Humans Never Existed.... wow, liberals really hate reality. Clothes exist. Technology exists. Mannerisms exist. Humans? No, never existed. Ever. This is rather similar to the film Noah, which strongly suggested that God created the world for animals, man was just an after thought, and should never have happened, and it's regrettable that they have. Again, what's the strategy, on a national, cultural level, in investing millions and millions and millions of dollars in the making and marketing and distribution of an animated film that starts out with the assumption that humans never existed? To teach children that they are animals, not humans. You can't miss what the title suggests: Zootopia, where there are only animals and no humans, is also a utopia, so let's get rid of humans so we can have a happy world. Let's compare it to this trailer for The Secret Life Of Pets:
True, this is granting animals personalities, but they are also still animals, and the humans are humans. Humans don't like themselves like Mel the Pug, and even though the video game experience is big and important to people, they can't fly it like Sweet Pea the bird. Now, what's the difference, for example, between Zootopia above and, say, Bugs Bunny? Bugs has "humanistic" characteristics, he can talk, for example, but he doesn't exist at the expense of humans (Elmer Fudd exists as well, and they co-exist in the world). Further, Bugs Bunny has always supported the same traits, morals and values that America itself has supported, unlike Zootopia that just decides to erase (literally, it scribbles out) millions of years of humanity, like Ben Affleck erasing his slave-owning ancestors, or that the Iranian refugees were released the same day Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president at the end of his film Argo. Now, let's examine another way that liberals are "re-writing history":
Hotel Transylvania was a decidedly pro-socialist film; how? Count Dracula owns a hotel, hence he has employees that run the hotel and he is the out-of-touch dad that is a capitalist. Whereas earlier monster films (read: pre-2008) had socialists as the monsters because of, you know, Stalin, Pol Pott, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin, Pinochet, etc., now the Left has decided to make capitalists the monsters because, you know, they are bosses, and work sucks. So the grand kid is the future that the capitalists and Millennial population are fighting over: which way is America going to go? Trying to teach the kid to be a monster is trying to teach him how to be a capitalist, according to socialists.
So, Indiana Jones 5, with Harrison Ford, is being seriously rumored as slated for a 2018 release. You may have all ready heard, Ben Affleck is set to star and direct a stand-alone Warner Brothers Batman film, which totally confirms their liberal leanings and why Christopher Nolan was removed as the head of the DC comics department there. 
So, I've been a bit burned out writing this stuff, and if I am burned out writing it, I feel I can safely assume that you are burned out reading it. I am seriously starting the series that I have been making notes for and organizing on How To Eat Art: a serious breakdown of as many different symbols as I can possibly write about with as many examples as I can think of to illustrates it. So, for example, one whole post will be on the symbolism of the color "White," and it will have the positive symbols and the negative symbols with plenty of examples of each. What's the purpose of this? To help all of us better understand how art works so we can better engage and gain greater understanding. I'm actually excited about this, and it's not the only thing I will be posting, but it will give me some focus that I hope will be constructive for me and you.
