Utterly Pro-Socialist, The Magnificent Seven

Well, Ethan Hawke was telling the truth: The Magnificent Seven is about a group of poor people, hiring criminals, banding together to defeat an evil capitalist and industrialist who is likely meant to be Donald Trump. I'm really disappointed in Denzel Washington for having made this film. Chris Pratt, not so much, because he's still got a "young career" and I understand taking parts that are offered, but Washington can pick and choose and this was a terrible decision on his behalf. If you were set on going to the movies this weekend, don't bother to see this one: apart from the racism against white people, you can't even understand (at least) half of the film's dialogue. I am working on the post now; have a better weekend than what mine has started off being,...

John Wick 2 Bulletproof & Opening This Weekend

John Wick is back.
The first poster for John Wick 2 has been released; subtitled, Bulletproof, the film wants to make obvious reference to The Kingsman Secret Service film which highlighted the relationship between being a gentleman and the (bespoke) suit he wore; Wick's is obviously bulletproof and makes him look like an undertaker,... quite fitting.
Pun intended.
So, having read the synopsis, the film is obviously anti-business, and makes everyone who works at a business look bad and even heartless. The baby you see was made by a machine, which, obviously, is unnatural, like the people "growing" in pods in the Tom Cruise film Oblivion or Man Of Steel on Krypton. While the boy in the film asks for a brother, he gets a baby sister instead; why? Because men are bad and little boys grow up to be white male oppressors. The reason it's important to understand what the film is about is 1). it's animated, and people typically assume that if it's animated it's safe for the kids to watch and that is certainly not the case at all. 2). The tag line, "Find Your Flock" is an obvious animal reference and we know that there has been a massive battle being waged regarding whether we are humans or animals, and Storks wants us all to obviously be animals. 
Opening this weekend is both Magnificent Seven and Storks. Both films are anti-capitalist (Magnificent Seven filmed last summer when Trump made the announcement he was running for president, so it's likely the crew intentionally made the film about him, adapting elements of the script to reflect how they see him) so it doesn't really matter which of them I go and see, I will be miserable at either,... do you feel sorry for me? I am trying to post again, slowly but surely, and will try ever so hard to get the post up on The Magnificent Seven by Saturday afternoon. Again, Google is disabling the Slideshow app which appears in the upper-right-hand corner of this blog,...which I have had since I first started it, so it will no longer be there in a few days,... last but not least, let's take a quick look at two new trailers. First, Passengers:
There are numerous elements we could pick up on in this trailer, but for the moment, let's focus on them "waking up." Recall that tediously long and detailed post I wrote (while heavily medicated) on the symbols in King Arthur: Legend Of the Sword? One of the first things we hear Arthur say is, "I woke up," and when asked, "From where?" Arthur replies, "From a nightmare." In the post, we discussed the political significance of "waking up," and we see the two "passengers" "waking up" while on the "ship of state" (the spacecraft) supposedly heading towards a blissful new world (socialist utopia) but actually it's doomed. Isn't it nice to have me back? Our second trailer features Mr. Ice Cube:
Mr. Cube is actually a Trump supporter (quite brave of him I think) so a film like this is going to highlight the civil war that has been raging for several years now between whites and blacks as well as the obvious disadvantage whites are at in this fight: "Teachers don't fight," Mr. Campbell says, because, neither should adults who have jobs and responsibilities in their communities and to others; but that is certainly what we have seen in the last several years, so while this is obviously a comedy, because it's taking place in a school, we can decode it to understand that we the audience are being "schooled" in the lessons of racial relationships that have developed and the best ways to deal with them, and maybe some ways to avoid. Lastly, but not in the least little way the least, here is what looks to be an amazing film, Alone In Berlin:
This will be released October 13, so please be looking for it. Remember the "Public Service Announcement" aka "Propaganda" that Joss Whedon released? Here is the first parody that has been made in honor of those telling us what to do:
Remember, it's important to vote, so you can vote if you liked this video at this link; did you vote for the original video? You can vote for or against the original propaganda piece at this link if you didn't do so yet. Again, thanks to all of you who have been so loyal in checking back and seeing if anything has been posted; I am trying, and recovering, so things should get back to normal. Lots of love and gratitude to each and everyone of you!

The End Of Marvel Studios: Avengers Embracing Socialism

What makes these actors think that making a Public Service Announcement and telling people who to vote for will have an effect on the election? Again, they believe we have no free choice. They are all famous (how many times do they tell us how famous they all are? and that makes them more important than you are in their estimation) and even people who aren't so famous, still are more famous than you are, and so, therefore, by Joss Whedon's account, they know more than you do and you should do exactly what they tell you to do, even though you have no idea who they are or what they do. So, the fact that you have no free will, means you are going to do what these "famous people" tell you to do. Other than being famous, these people have no qualifications to guide others in voting; just as Hillary Clinton has no qualifications to become president. Secondly, putting the nukes in the hands of someone whose signature line is "You're fired!" is a bad idea because,... because,...? But Obama putting nukes in the hands of Iran and ISIS is a great idea because they are killing Christians and all the famous people in this video hate Christians. I am so furious. And it's going to get even worse. More video "PSAs" are coming. There are nearly as many "Un-Likes" as "Likes" of the video, and the creators of the channel are being accused of erasing comments they don't like, so it's possible that the backlash will keep Whedon and company from posting anymore of the anti-Trump/pro-Hillary videos, but I doubt it.
This is a terrible day.
Abraham Lincoln said that the United States would never be destroyed by outside enemies, but from within; sadly, it appears that Hollywood giant Marvel Studios is being torn apart from within as well. This political ad against Donald Trump--regardless of what you think of Trump or whether or not you personally support him--will have massive financial repercussions for the studio:
To begin with, on Monday, September 19, we discussed Ethan Hawke telling reporters that his newest film, The Magnificent Seven, is about people banding together to ban Trump, advertising to conservatives that this film is going against everything they believe and the film instead is supporting a candidate (Hillary Clinton) who has labeled the movie-going population of conservatives as being "deplorables." In this post about Hawke, I foretold that more actors would begin turning on the studios because the studios make films that support traditional American values which conservatives still cherish. Get rid of the studio and you get ride of what is one of the last vestiges of American cultural identity (we have seen it happening in Marvel Comic Books: the black female Iron Man replacement, the female Thor, the gay characters being introduced, etc.). The actors aren't hurt by this campaigning because they all ready have their fortunes, so we, the middle and lower-classes, are the ones who are hurt by it. Now, just a few days later, director of The Avengers Joss Whedon has gathered members of The Avengers (and other famous people who are obviously happy to tell you they are famous while you and I are not famous, which qualifies them to tell us who to vote for, in their manner of thinking) to tell us how horrible Donald Trump is and to beg us to vote for she who has killed dozens of innocent people for the sake of her career and money, and sold this country out to the highest bidder.
Okay, why is this happening?
For at least two reasons.
If you are thinking, "Well, at least Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner weren't in the video," you might be wrong: Whedon has made five such "PSAs" that will be released between now and election week, so he's probably gathered every famous person he knows to speak out against Trump, and it's just a matter of where your favorite actor is on the schedule before their role comes out. Marvel Studios obviously hasn't had anything to do with these PSAs, except having made this actors extremely successful and famous; unless Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton or Rachel McAdams appears in one of these PSAs, a film like Doctor Strange may still be relatively successful; Spider Man: Homecoming, however, in which Robert Downey Jr has a starring role, will probably perform at a record-breaking low for the studio because film-goers will boycott because of RDJ making this video; the upside is, The Fantastic Four will not be the lowest box-office draw Marvel film in history. Films like The Infinity Wars will definitely suffer, massively, because all of these actors portray the characters in that film. Marvel is screwed. In the days leading up to the election, Marvel has two choices: sue the actors/Joss Whedon for negatively impacting the image of Marvel Studios with their personal lives (kind of like what Warner Brothers did with Charlie Sheen) or hope that, when their next films have come out, it will have blown over and people will have forgotten. People aren't going to forget, not when they have been personally insulted by people they have supported and who brought to life characters audiences admired and bonded with. Nothing could have destroyed Marvel Studios except the actors, and that's exactly what they have done. A problem Marvel has is that of the Actors Union: they can't fire the actors from their contracts because the union will step in and sue the studio on the actors' behalf, so the studios are going to be really tied here. It's not just Marvel that's going to suffer, however; Cobie Smulders, who portrays Agent Maria Hill in the Marvel Universe, is also co-starring with Tom Cruise in the upcoming release of Jack Reacher 2; how many will boycott the Tom Cruise film because of seeing Smoulders in this ad? How many people were looking forward to Sherlock Holmes 3, which was scheduled to begin production this fall, and will now boycott because of RDJ making this video? What it took Robert Downey Jr years to achieve has now been erased in three minutes. 
First of all, a lack of gratitude. It's hard to see someone like Robert Downey Jr, who was utterly broke before Iron Man made him one of the highest paid actors in history, come out to make a video which is going to make conservatives boycott Marvel Studios' films and cost the studio dearly. But hey, he has his millions and millions, so what does he care? What does any of them care? They don't because they all have contracts, which leads to our second point of why they would come out and make a video like this: arrogance. They all think they are irreplaceable. "You're vote matters," they tell us, and at the box office and TV, they are going to see how powerful our vote is. If you would like to vote right now, and show them what you think, click on the Save The Day link at the top of the video, or you can click this link here directly, and go to the YouTube channel posting the PSAs, and vote by liking or not linking the video that way.

TRAILER: Morgan Spurlock's Horror-Documentary "Rats" & Modern Politics

Even though the film is a "horror-documentary" supposedly designed to make us hate and despise rats, a rat's life is ultimately what the Left has in store for everyone. Think about what was done to the Jews and prisoners in concentration camps throughout Europe during World War II: they were treated like rats, they were exterminated, just like the lead interviewer of the film was an exterminator for forty years; anyone standing in the way of what they want, will be exterminated. 
The worst horror films are always the ones that you believe could actually happen. Prolific director Morgan Spurlock has made a documentary about, what may be, mankind's greatest enemy: the rat. Did you know, a rat can leap up to four feet? It can tread water for three days and survive a five-story fall,.... so, how do we kill them? This documentary looks at rat infestation throughout the major cities of the world:
Those terrier dog packs you see hunting the rats? Those dog packs will hunt and kill a hundred rats a day,... Why do we have a documentary that looks more like a horror film, or, should we say, why do we have a horror film pretending to be a documentary? Spurlock has stated that a documentary that was like a horror film was his intent, but there is a not-so-hidden agenda with the director/human experiment of Supersize Me and that is going to be one of a liberal agenda: rats have been with us for millennia: ever hear of the bubonic plague?  They have always been around, in fields, cities, villages, etc., and they will continue to be so; Spurlock probably wants to make the case that, if we didn't have such big cities, if we didn't have so much waste, we wouldn't have such a rat problem,... would we?
While Ed Sheehan, who we see in the trailer, actually has been an exterminator in Brooklyn for forty years, he has an important fact wrong: there are not more rats living in NYC than people. While it has been a popular urban legend that there is a rat for every person in the Big Apple, scientists have pinpointed the rat population to be 25% that of the human population; so? Through the promulgation of the legend rather than fact, we find an element of the horror genre: out of control. The rats can't possibly be defeated, they reproduce too quickly, they carry disease, they evolve so quickly, and we mediocre humans that we are, we are losers and we should just surrender to them because that is what Obama would do, after his last round on the golf course at Martha's Vineyard. We will launch a hashtag campaign, and signal every human to surrender to the greater force of the rats, just as we are surrendering to ISIS and their superiority. This film, is propaganda, it's mind-control and it will be filled with mind-tricks and liberal positions, like there is no free will and humans are nature's greatest enemies.
Of course we would.
Didn't you see the terrier packs digging the rat up out of the ground? But that isn't the point Spurlock wants to make. As a capitalist, I view the situation as we elect public officials to handle issues like rat control, just as we see in the video; if the officials haven't done that job for which they have been elected, we need to purge them out of office and elect or hire someone who can and will. That's not the "horror" aspect of the documentary Spurlock wants us to face, either: with horror, there has to be a sense that it's spiraling out of control, and that we are helpless to do anything about it,... like we are helpless to stop eating McDonalds' and getting fat,... we are helpless. We have no free will. Any consequences in life that we face, like a rat population, is a sign that someone, somewhere, needs to be sued,... because someone other than ourselves is responsible and we are going to make them pay. As my film professor always said, there is always a reason a film is made now: it could not have been made five years earlier, and it would not do to release it five years later. The political environment of the last eight years has made a film like this possible, and a director like Spurlock successful.

P.S.: I just found out Google is disabling the slideshow gadget feature I have had on this blog since I started it; no more artwork; so sorry, that's how they are :(
There is no technology or waste anywhere in this area, but because the film will have hammered into our minds (by this point in the narrative) that rats are everywhere and we can't escape them, even this remote area will not appear to be safe, even though rats are a part of nature and serve a part in nature as do all animals, just like Winston Smith in 1984, we will be begging someone to free us from the rats and, Spurlock hopes, we will be willing to trade our freedoms and modern ways of life to be "rat-free." BUT, we are the ones who will become rats under liberal policies; in the film, we go to the capitol of the communist country Vietnam, and watch people catch rats then sell them for food. You are what you eat,...

The Magnificent Seven (Remake) & Donald Trump

Please don't forget that the original remake of The Magnificent Seven with Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen had a Mexican as the villain; changing the villain to an American land-owner and industrialist is one more sad example of the Left trying to re-write American history and re-shape the country to hold up their propaganda. It's possible, though not probable, that Ethan Hawke is throwing us a foul ball just to put us off of a truly pro-capitalist Magnificent Seven, just as we have seen Jennifer Lawrence, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Liam Neeson, Daniel Craig and others do over the last year or so; why? IF The Magnificent Seven is pro-capitalist, and doesn't go against Trump the way Hawke claims it does, then the studio will suffer for conservatives boycotting the film after hearing Hawke's anti-Trump statement; if the film is truly anti-Trump, then the studio's reward comes in making the claim and giving conservatives the finger. It's still possible that the film isn't pro-socialist: I would have bet money that Zootopia and the remake of Ghostbusters were both pro-socialist, but I was very wrong; Hawke isn't particularly bright, and it's possible he's providing us with his wishful reading of the film's events, not the actual narrative, in which case, it would benefit him to tell people not to go see it because the Left does not want conservatives having their positions validated. I'm guessing it probably is against Trump, but I have been wrong in the recent past.  
Opening this weekend is The Magnificent Seven remake. I have been wavering on whether or not it would be pro-socialist or pro-capitalist, but it appears Ethan Hawke has answered the question for us: in this article, Hawke reveals that the film is about people banning together to fight Donald Trump. Regardless of whether or not you support Trump is actually irrelevant: the re-writing of the film to have outlaws and criminals defend people from a candidate (Trump) wanting to restore law and order to the country after eight years of lawlessness is a clear sign that we are in socialist territory: not only is the Democratic candidate a criminal, but Obama has released more criminals, and more violent criminals, directly into society than any other president. We've seen this in the case of pro-capitalist films predicting this move: from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, to the bunny Snowball in The Secret Life Of Pets, the socialists view the criminals as being the good-guys and the decent, hard-working Americans as criminals who should all die, and the sooner the better. In the case of The Magnificent Seven, it's the outlaws who are going to save the socialists from a society wanting law and order which Trump is promising to bring back.

Sorry

I've been sick. I thought I was getting better and then I had a set-back. I am truly sorry. Thank you for visiting the blog and being so faithful! I hope to be back in two days!
