I pressed play thinking I was watching the “Hocus Pocus” film, but was surprised to find it was a different retro witch film. Never had heard of it, but it was great. One of those “practical effect” movies from the 80’s / 90’s like the early Peter Jackson films. Creative camera angles and cuts combined with art pieces make it a lot more fun to watch. 
 
Nothin’ to analyze really besides the fact that it reminds me of pedogate stuff and the German accent of the antagonist reminds me of an old Jewish one. So before things totally derail into a film about mice, it could be a good analogy for blood libel (((elites))) tryin’ to diddle and sacrifice your kids. 


The phrenology/physiognomy of the witches seems to fit our “preconceived notions” and parallel our reality a bit…



The film’s ironic setting is solid social commentary knowing what we now know about nonprofits/govt agencies being magnets for child trafficking. Hiding in plain sight, right under our unhooked noses.



 
Overall it was real wholesome, and just scary enough to make it special for Halloween. Would totally watch this with my future children, maybe age 7 and up? ( I remember having nightmares about “Gremlins 3” as a kid so it’s up to your discretion. Surely 12 year olds can handle it. ) Besides, the mouse element it more lighthearted than “Gremlins” and both have outdated visuals that may be laughable to modern audiences. So perhaps, age 9 sounds about right.

What about adults? Well, if you’re not a “practical effects” fan, you can skip this one. It’s not a classic like “Never-ending Story” or many other 80’s/90’s films that are required viewing. But since it’s a Jim Hensen film, I’d recommend it. In fact, I wrote about the pedogate elements of his “All Dogs Go To Heaven” film here. It’s a stretch but you gotta’ wonder if a man with a genuine & pure love for kids got into showbiz, saw some shady stuff, and addressed it through his art. Some Kubrick style catharsis and dog whistling. Iuhnno… I miss when movies still had wiggle room for your own ham-fisted interpretation v.s. the in-your-face woke messages of today. Speaking of which, they are remaking “The Witches” and it’s gonna’ be an all Black cast set in civil rights era Alabama. Surely there’ll be some anti-White propaganda shoved down your throat. Thankfully the original film has none, and is simply a nice experience.
 
Check it out!

I thought it was written by Mel but it wasn’t. Lots of stuff seemed to be parallel with his life: recovery, Catholicism, nazi father figure, etc. But the screenplay was based on a book and it was written and directed by other folks. Anyways, great film. Nice twist for the typical revenge type father daughter trope. Great acting and foreshadowing and symbolism throughout. Really badass protagonists as well. For example, the female lead didn’t kick ass like a typical Hollywood movie, instead she was helpful by using her charm. The Alcoholics Anonymous aspect was also refreshing and added some great social commentary and relatable satire throughout. 
 
Definitely recommend!

Awesome movie. Super racist and sexist, but all in good fun with no targets left un-satirized. I had never seen it before, but definitely think Troma type movies are the wave of the future for dissident voices sick of Hollywood BS. Of course, this is a super raunchy movie with childish humor for degenerates like me. If you are a purity spiraling bible thumper type or Wignat, you may not like (((Lloyd Kaufman)))’s work. I understand that, but I can’t pretend not to enjoy such films even now. I look forward to watching more of them, but probably won’t have much insightful analysis. I guess it was annoying and noticeable that they didn’t make fun of Yahweh,  but made fun of Jesus and Allah. So it wasn’t 100% bipartisan with who it lampooned. Go figure. Still, I am impressed that they made Muslim jokes like that and never got death threats. I just googled and didn’t find anything about Lloyd being hassled by Muslims. Guess they are too underground. Did find this gem tho:

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

I was watching the film over the Christmas holidays, and now that I’m woke to the JQ I immediately had a hunch that the film was written by a Jew about his insecurities. The reason is because most Hollywood films champion the immigrant or outsider. I discovered this from a documentary / book called “An Empire of Their Own.” I highly recommend it. Here are relevant clips to help you understand how this relates to Rudolph and how I instantly knew Jews were behind the victimhood story:

Sure ’nuff, Rudolph was no exception:

Here’s a link to that article, and a link to an Alt Right satirical article (NSFW) elaborating on Rudolph’s origins.

To be honest, I put the film on in the background for the children I was with. Therefore, I hardly payed attention and so I can’t expand much further. Oh well, you’ve probably already seen it.

It is very nostalgic and the claymation was done in Japan apparently. So you’ll be able to enjoy it, but not like you used to. Unfortunately it’s kinda’ too late to boycott, but I still say reject the victimhood subversion of our culture and refuse to buy the DVD.

Just watch it if it’s on TV.

"The Christchurch Shooting is reminiscent of ‘Rampage’ (2009)"

3 1star1star1star

So, the reason I decided to watch this flick is because someone on a political message board suggested it. The implications of course, being the resemblance to the Christchurch Shooter.

But on second thought, you could perceive this as a manlet rage fest. (The main character literally makes fun of a victim by saying, “You look retarded when you stand up!”) Or perhaps a disaffected white rampage story, similar to how BlackPilled describes “Office Space.” The common theme throughout is how society is messed up, materialistic at the expense of the planet. Against the capitalist bankers. Occupy Wall Street was in 2011 so it seems like this was riding a zeitgeist of people fed up after the 2008 bail out? Donno.

But after reading the Christchurch Shooter’s manifesto, (who bashes capitalists and is a self described Eco Fascist), it seems this film is indeed very relevant. One of the markings on the shooter’s gun was the “Third Position” symbol:


To oversimplify, it’s the nuanced beliefs of National Socialists and Fascists who dislike both Capitalists and Communists.

And of course, “Rampage” conjures up images of right wing death squads like the ones seen in the anime “Jun Roh.” The main character even says, “You think people are equal? Nobody is equal.”

So you’d think that the director is a closet nazi or right winger. Unfortunately, after some googling it turns out he’s a hardcore anti-racist lefty who made a holocaust movie about how evil his German ancestors were. So you can strike that theory. It seems that he’s yet another director who decided to make a psychopathic right winger cliché with no remorse. This is evident when at the end of the movie the main character frames his leftwing political activist friend for all of his evil deeds. Perhaps a social commentary on how the media was demonizing the Iraq War protesters? (You hear news reports about Iraq in the background during the intro.)

If I can be an armchair psychologist for a second, it seems like Uwe Boll has pent up violent fantasies and projects them onto right wingers. Like most leftists do. The film is conflicted, because the main character is not a cartoon villain, and his actions are cathartic for most viewers. But unlike Quintin Tarantino’s recent string of f**k whitey films, (where the main characters ruthlessly kill evil whites), Uwe Boll makes the evil white guy the main character. 

For what it’s worth, there’s no feminist/affirmative action/LGBT stuff in it, so that’s nice. There’s hardly a plot though. Just a gore fest.

Oh, fair warning! The shaky camera technique is used through the entirety of this film. Not just the action scenes. Which normally irks me, but in the case of “Rampage” it’s a bit nostalgic and feels fitting.

I was gonna’ say don’t pay to see it because I thought the film was anti-right winger propaganda. But after doing more research on the director, I have no clue. Seems like a cool dude and the film may and his characters may be more multifaceted than I thought. So what the hell, pay to watch if you can.

Funny mindless entertainment and no insane agenda shoved in. Although, I did notice a trend among all three films. It was something I never noticed growing up, and may seem unimportant even now, but it clearly seeps into the subconscious of many viewers…

The Outdated Fatshaming Fantasy of ‘Little Miss Sunshine’

Just before watching Little Miss Sunshine I listened to a fitting podcast that touches on rightwingers and beauty, because of my review of Doctor Dolittle 2. And I’m tellin’ ya, you gotta’ listen to these sections of the podcast, because they perfectly summarize the motives behind Little Miss Sunshine and every film like it:

When I first heard his crude, (and strangely poetic), analogy I laughed out loud. It was so absurd and harsh I couldn’t help it. Perhaps because there was truth in what he said and it was an uncomfortable schadenfreude burst of laughter. Anyway, just a day or two after listening to that, Cosmo decided to put this land whale on their cover:

 


^ (Source) .

 


.

 

This is nothing new, and if you look at who’s pushing the _____ acceptance agenda, you’ll find that the guys above are spot on with their takes. And it’s especially true of Hollywood. This is something I discovered while rewatching Heathers after looking into the people who made it. When you ask yourself how things got so crazy in 2018 with trannies and freaks galore, just go back and watch some old films. Hindsight is 20/20, and it’s clearly incrementalism at work, boiling us frogs alive.

TL;DR from my Heathers review:

And an update for Little Miss Sunshine:

 

So what kind of hideous monsters are behind Little Miss Sunshine? I could post some unflattering pictures to support my narrative, but in all honesty my sleuthing found that the screenwriter and directors of Little Miss Sunshine aren’t hideous gremlins. They actually seem pretty cool and they have a good track record with the art they produce. But they are progressive weirdos and it shows.

^(Source).

I tracked down the original Arnold article that triggered Arndt and it’s exactly what you’d expect. Granted, the “despise losers” line does sound harsh, but with the full context it’s nothing worth fussing about. Schwarzenegger starts off by encouraging the chess nerds, joking about how they intimidate him and are “the true heroes.” And he ends the speech by saying, “it’s not how much you make, but how much you give.” Real run-of-the-mill pep talk stuff, no?

And I’ve seen some of Arnold’s other speeches that mirror the Little Miss Sunshine‘s X rules for success bit. But the funny thing is that I used to listen to these speeches at the gym, because I found them so motivational that I’d play ’em over and over when I needed an extra boost. Whereas the screenwriter was repulsed by them and not inspired in the least. And much like a game of telephone, by the time this beta interpretation of Arnold finally got filtered through everyone in the studio, the script went from an already anti-Chad slant to an insanely anti-Chad one:

^(Source).


^(Source).

Apparently a similar wringer process happened when they hired him to write Star Wars, btw. Allegedly Arndt is gay and that’s part of his “woe is me” persecution themes. Whether those are rumors or not, he was still clearly a progressive – just not progressive enough for the regressive anti-whites who run Hollywood it seems. By the end of the filming process he was fired and they hardly used any of his original script. We’ll never know exactly what went on behind the scenes, but in the interviews regarding script changes to Little Miss Sunshine, he said the studio wanted the father’s character to be more in-depth, whereas Arndt wanted him to just be a one dimensional comic relief. On the other hand, with Star Wars Arndt apparently made it too much about the likable Luke Skywalker patriarch and JJ protested. So that begs the question, would Little Miss Sunshine have been more or less anti-Chad if it remained true to Arndt’s initial vision?

Who knows? Who cares? Hollywood is full of androgynous degenerates. So the only real debate they have is if they want to make characters less masculine in order to make them relatable/likable (in their eyes), or if they want to make them hyperbolically macho in order to lampoon them as enemies. Two sides of the same shekel.

To the man’s credit though, he does write amazing scripts. And to be fair, I think most leftists have good intentions with all this egalitarian fantasy crap. I don’t think they had any clue it’d get out of hand like it has. Nevertheless, watching this film  a decade later is very different knowing what I know now. It’s much harder to see it as a cute and inspirational movie. Instead I view it as one of the seeds planted that lead to the anti-fat shaming, genderless blob of a society that we live in now.


.


.

Not sure if I’d go as far as Greg Johnson would, because I think criticizing the status quo is essential for a healthy society to progress, and history shows there is a natural cycle/pendulum swing with pros and cons on both sides. But at this point I’m just so jaded it’s hard to appreciate Hollywood’s culture of critique.

Maybe that’s mainly because the film is dated… I remember being on the forefront of the body positivity shift. I love thicc  girls and would always encourage women to feel confident with their curves. But then every disgusting goblin in society jumped on the bandwagon and soiled the movement.

Minor spoiler memes

If you can think of this film as a criticism of modernity, and focus on the family values aspect, it’s great. Do your best to think about how a good family will stick through thick and thin, and have unconditional love for each other. Think of this as an attack on the bizarre and grotesque children’s beauty pageant phenomena in America. Likewise, realize that any decent parent would encourage their prepubescent child not to care about their body image, especially when they are healthy and only have a little baby fat like the film’s star had. With these things in mind, (and combined with the amazing cinematography, acting, chemistry, and soundtrack), Little Miss Sunshine is still worth watching and supporting.

Yup. Another overly simplistic plot line about evil capitalists who try to exploit the environment at all costs. And of course they just HAD to make it clear that they were Republicans. In one scene, the cartoonishly evil fat cats say:

I’m sure I’m gonna’ regret this, but maybe you should talk with Dolittle.
And what? Give in to a bunch of beasts and lower life forms?
I took on the Democrats! I can take on a bunch of animals!

Yeah, that “lower life forms” thing has undertones of racism, huh? Which is funny because, as always, the left projects their own subconscious bigotry when they  add parallels to civil rights movements. In the climax of the film all the animals around the world go on strike. A similar proletariat struggle to what the “Planet of the Apes” remakes have. So… what? Are they implying minorities are lower life forms? Or just that evil white people and Republicans think of them like that? In this film it’s not so bad because animals are just as intelligent as humans. But their logic starts to thin out when their metaphors get extended too far, as I talked about in my review of “Valerian.”

In addition to Republicans, the movie also made fun of country bumpkins in a few scenes. But it also made fun of the spoiled city bear, and besides, the voice of the country bumpkin bear was African American, so I guess it evens out? The anti-white agenda was very subtle and seemed more like a PC thing. Easily ignored.

Hmmm, what else? There’s a scene with the crocodile hunter that’s a bit morbid now that he died. Just worth noting…

Oh, and the subplot involving Eddie Murphy’s teenage daughter being a defiant thot may irk you.

There was no real feminist agenda, the script seemed to be just satirizing the current state of gender relations. Jokes about alpha males, hypergamy, power struggle in the marriage, etc. But I can’t help and wonder if historians will look at stuff like this as a decline in the West that lead to our eventual collapse / hard reset. Or if historians will look at this stuff as just a by-product of trans-humanism; the more advanced humans became, the more the natural order of things was disrupted. Crazy b**ches were just bumps along the road, bumps that technology eventually evened out. A sign of decadence and an age of abundance. Who knows? But it’s hard not to think about this stuff and how cringeworthy it must be for other cultures to see a daughter and wife walk all over the patriarch protagonist throughout the film.

Speaking of man’s relation to nature and the natural order of things, there’s a growing subculture within the rightwing that is adamantly environmentalist. Partly just joking, but many truly desire a pre-industrial revolution state. (Or at least they claim to want this, while continuing to mooch off their parent’s while playing videogames and tweeting about how bad technology is…) Of course, these are the extreme outliers in the political spectrum: anarcho-primitivists, eco-fascists, neo-pagans, etc.

But it’s not just outliers that care about the environment. I grew up with a neocon mom who made us recycle and used to hate how it became politicized. I’m ranting off topic here, but it’s worth delving into before watching any environmentalist movies, even goofy ones like “Doctor Dolittle 2.” Because this Alt Right podcast makes a good point: we need to stop being reactionaries within leftists’ framing. It’s fine to troll and debate the specifics of climate change hysteria, but to give in to their imaginations and concede that rightwingers just want to watch the world burn is silly. Libertarians like Penn & Teller say that recycling is pointless, and constitutional conservatives like Steven Crowder say environmentalists often cause more harm than good. That’s all fine and dandy.

And there’s clearly an agenda (with double standards) being pushed that we must not submit to:

BUT we can still have an appreciation for beauty and a desire to preserve it. We can still nourish our deeply rooted connections with nature. Afterall, isn’t it always the Republican stereotype who goes hunting & camping, and lives away from the cities? If you keep this in mind, and try to embrace it, the cliché tree hugging hippie bullsh*t storyline won’t bother you as much.

As always, I overanalyzed a slapstick cookie cutter family movie. I know, I know. I didn’t have high expectations going into it and that’s why I could actually enjoy it despite its flaws. I just thought I’d share my ramblings in hopes that you could enjoy it as well.

 Anywho… the final verdict? Don’t go out of your way to watch this film, but if your kids want to see it or it’s the only thing on TV, then it’s worth sitting down for.

It’s bizarre re-watching childhood movies now that I’m “redpilled.” I truly was colorblind in many ways back then. Because holy crap, are there a lot of black people in this film. Compared to 2018 affirmative action, it’s nothing, but still it’s very intentional and not representative of the 13% of our population. And as usual, all the stereotypes are flipped. The nerdy black genius entrepreneur keeps the hospital running and his Jewish partner is concerned that the third (white gentile) partner is too greedy and is sacrificing the greater good of the community for short term monetary gains. 🙃 There were racial stereotypes in animal form though. For example, Mexican cholo rats, an Italian gangster possum, and a self-hating pigeon who wishes he was a hawk.

Speaking of which, there’s an uncomfortable hierarchy in the black community where the men all chase after “red boned” or “yellow boned” women. In other words, they all try to get light skinned women. The marriage on display in this film is the average black man’s fantasy. One that most white people are oblivious to. We just see a mixed couple. But Eddie Murphy’s wife has green eyes and is clearly more white than black. And if you’re not a sheltered yuppie champagne socialist, you’ll know that this dynamic is most evident in South America and Africa. The funny thing is that SJW’s started saying it was white privilege and systemic bla bla jargon bla bla that caused this preference. So then the casting directors went from this:


To this:

They say it’s only “white standards of beauty” that make us prefer Kristen Wilson over Leslie Jones. But really this just reveals their subconscious racism. Because you can have super dark skin, frizzy hair, a round nose, big lips, etc. and still be incredibly gorgeous. Why the pendulum swing into ugliness? Why pretend the emperor has no clothes instead of finding a nice balance like these chocolatey goddesses?

Hollywood made this mistake with Rose in “Star Wars” and real, authentic Asians hated her. Guess they didn’t get the white guilt, fat shaming memo…


『ローズですよろしくね!』
“Nice to meet you, I’m Rose!”

『イウオークがしあべった!?』
“Did that Ewok just talk!?

Anyways, back to “Dr. Dolittle.” The moral of the story was to quit denying your genetic gifts regardless of what society pressures you to do. The film follows Eddie’s lifelong struggle as he tries to hide his identity to the point that it even manifests in his daughter. In a heartwarming scene towards the end, Eddie Murphy says this to his self-conscious and quirky offspring:

No matter what happens, you be who you are. And you love who you are.

So in a sense, it’s a bit of an identitarian movie…

Maybe I’m a product of incrementalist propaganda, idunno. But even though I noticed the PC affirmative action crap, I still enjoyed this film. Even today. I think partly it’s because Eddie Murphy is truly funny and so is Chris Rock. Their positions of power seem earned and fitting. Also, one of the main characters, a dog, is voiced by Norm Macdonald. And he’s an anti-PC legend. So pay to watch this and do your best to ignore the subtle anti-white bias.

The “anti-patriotism” rating is not because it’s anti-American, but because it’s the same-old same-old borderline socialist crap. You know, the evil businessman trope.

Not much to analyze in this one…

Iuhnno, lotta’ white people for a change. That was nice. But of course, like with all Hollywood films, they wait until the climax to inject maximum diversity and feminism.

The main character’s best friend had a virtual reality avatar that was a macho, cyborg orc thing. You could tell they used some mild audio masking software, but you could still tell his best friend was a female. There were tons of cues and foreshadowing. Like, they kept calling the orc a “dude” or “bro.”  But Hollywood’s non-binary tranny agenda made it obvious for anyone who’s woke.  So when the big reveal came to show that it was a black woman, I was unsurprised, and unannoyed. Instead, I turned to my girlfriend and shouted, “I toldja’ so!” Also, they don’t outright say it, but she’s certainly a lesbian since she tried making out with another woman in the film and dresses like one.

Overall, “Ready Player One” was pretty entertaining. Probably because the male lead wasn’t a total f**got. The overabundance of strong female characters didn’t detract from his heroism. Pretty rare nowadays. *cough* Lookin’ at you “Force Awakens” *cough* Although, if you know anything about #GamerGate and gamer girls, the way the heroines were portrayed may be off-putting for you. After all, it’s not just physical differences that require gender-segregated competitions:

(4:18 – 5:38)

Not a big deal, though. Suspend your belief and pretend you’re only watching the outliers. The part that’s harder to ignore is the way they try to makeup for having 2 white leads romantically involved with each other, by shoving in a bunch of diversity and women extras jammed in whenever they could. Similar to what they did in “La La Land” as well as “The Martian” and “Snowden.” Like clockwork, too. Always in the capstone.

Check out this super knowledgable, nerd girl leading the research team, coming up with epiphanies and lecturing the fat white leader.

And can’t forget the token black guy, vital to solving complex problems:

Or how bout this group of 60% )))non stereotypical((( lawyers? Looks like they just finalized the paperwork necessary for seizing farmland.

Honestly, the casting wasn’t so bad; still a surprising amount of whites.
It just feels like those carefully chosen crowds that stand behind politicians.




Oh, and the other reason the film got “anti-patriotism” ratings was because the protagonists’ parents were stupid rednecks with mullets. Yup, the Go-To demographic to sh*t on in movies, (next to Russians of course).  These white trash guardians were killed off and the audience wasn’t lead to feel any sympathy for them. It was a Cinderella type dynamic and their deaths were bittersweet for the audience. But fret not, ‘cuz the main character found a better family online in the form of an intersectional, ragtag crew. And together these colorblind proletariat took down the ruthless, bourgeois businessman!

Meh, everything above is just nitpicking.

Go see the film if you’re in the mood for CGI action. The 80’s nostalgia genre is getting stale, but it sure as hell beats Super Hero movies, no? Pay if you must, I’m not violently opposed to it. I only discourage paying because of rumors about Spielberg and because the multicultural casting choices were apparent enough to distract from the film.

The movie had some redeeming qualities. The two protagonists were fairly charming and of course the entire movie was visually stimulating. But there was just so much globalist cliché crap shoved in, it’s very close to a “skip” rating. You won’t pull your hair out watching this film, but it’ll be very frustrating to say the least. So only watch it if someone else suggests it, and hope it’s in somewhat of a social setting where you can scroll on your smart phone to keep you sane during woke / feminist / anti-colonial hot takes.

• Good nostalgia trip.
• No overt agenda.
• Lovable characters.
• Great animation.

To start off with something lighthearted I noticed, this musical is full of spoken word songs. Not sure if it was planned or if it was just because some of their actors couldn’t sing. But it creates a unique film-watching experience, and is one of the many nuances that make this cartoon seem suitable for adults. But that’s also probably why none of the songs are memorable…

I guess in some operas there’s a very difficult technique only pros can pull of called Sprechgesang or the twelve tone technique.
Here’s an example (no need to watch the whole thing):

I think it’s like abstract art. Sometimes it truly is a sign of skill and artistic genius, but often it just seems like an untrained moron. After some googling, it looks like others felt the same ambivalence to the singing on display:

Before the complicated Sprechengang technique was invented, there were lesser forms of half singing throughout history. I have a feeling that “All Dogs Go To Heaven” lies somewhere in between. Reynolds certainly isn’t skilled enough to do the fancy 12 Tone Technique, but it seems like a conscious choice made by Don Bluth to keep the film down to Earth. Who knows? But here’s some interesting trivia from TV Tropes:





Alright, two other fun things before we get to the dark and depressing:

There were politically incorrect jokes at the expense of

1.) Asians:

&

2.) Trannies:

Ah, the good ‘ol days! When gender bending was for comic relief.

Okay.

Now for the pizzagate stuff. So, I was reminded of an alleged child trafficking camp found in Arizona while watching this scene:

If you have never heard of this Arizona discovery, here’s a quick run down:

> Veterans searching for homeless vets stumble upon a child trafficking camp in Arizona
> Turns out there are lots of connections with the Clintons, Rothschilds, NXVIM cult, etc.
> This info starts spreading around the net and vigilantes/investigators show up to assist
> Suddenly a serial killer goes on a spree and happens to “””coincidentally””” kill JonBenét Ramsey’s psychiatrist

Yeah, pretty fishy, huh?

My disclaimer / conclusion on pedogate:

Unfortunately, being redpilled ruins pretty much every movie for you. And you can’t help but be reminded of all the sh*tty hard truths you know, even during intended leisure time. Often for no real reason at all. But this time, the connection my brain made might not be a fluke.



It turns out the child actress (Judith Barsi) was murdered by her “abusive” father when “All Dogs Go To Heaven” was in production. Now, based on what Corey Feldman and other whistle blowers have said about rampant pedophelia in Hollywood, one can’t help but wonder if Judith is somehow connected to this grand pedogate investigation. Did her father kill himself out of guilt? Psychosis? Or was it a potential cover up like the JonBerét Ramsey psychiatrist murder?

Well, after some googling duckduckgo-ing, it looks like I’m not the only one who suspects foul play.

This one is less circumstantial evidence and much more hearsay, but here’s a quick run down:

> There are several conspiracies and supposed contradictions surrounding Judith Barsi’s murder
> Some say it was a satanic murder on account of her being burned alive
> Some say that the alcoholic father was framed
> Some say the autopsy photo was faked
> There’s an anonymous source that leaks rumors and claims to be a Hollywood lawyer
> According to him, Stephen Speilberg is a pedo freak and abused Judith among others
> Apparently another Speilberg victim, (the little girl from poltergeist), was anally raped to death

 

This is an ongoing investigation so check for updates elsewhere, but here are some links & in depth summaries: ⬅

Who knows what really happened to Judith…

I guess I’m glad I was unaware of her murder before watching this classic. But the film in and of itself is already pretty heavy and full of tearjerker moments – with or without pizzagate thoughts in the back of your head.

If I ruined this film for you, let me suggest a new way to view it.

One of the theories about her death is that the father was a an alcoholic a**hole but not an abuser. And according to the official story, he managed to stay sober for a bit before her death. Steps 4 through 10 of Alcoholics Anonymous are all about doing deep introspection and facing ugly truths about your life. I’m not saying her father went to AA, but that it’s likely that many of the parents who pimped their children out to Hollywood must have done mental hula hoops to do so. Often members of AA discover they were trying to repress bad memories (both harm they inflicted upon others, and harm inflicted upon them). According to this anonymous whistle blower, Heather O’Rourke may have died because her parents naively believed the lie they were told about her illness. As American Beauty points out: “Never underestimate the power of denial.”

So perhaps he came to grips with the pedophilic exploitations of his little girl in his moment of clarity, and tried to rescue her. Maybe he had a redemptive transformation, (much like this film’s protagonist), and was seen as a threat to the Hollywood child trafficking racket. Seems like a very reasonable motive for someone to kill the entire family; and a drunk with a bad reputation like Judith’s father is the perfect patsy.


According to trivia from TV Tropes:




As far as the little girl in the cartoon, it shouldn’t be hard to make the mental leap ‘cuz of what IMDb states:


To be honest, it’s quite the stretch. California is a cesspit full of corrupt and disgusting people, so it’s not hard for me to be skeptical of the LA Times articles about Judith’s father, or the police reports. But her father’s first wife wrote a book and discusses his abusive nature which lead to their divorce. The whole thing is tragic, and it’s possible that everybody in Judith’s life was a piece of sh*t. But at least now you have an alternative theory to make the film digestible.

*sigh*

The day Commiefornia goes bankrupt can’t come soon enough…

Too bad it’s too late to boycott this movie. Besides, the parent companies are complicit, so if your intentions are to make a statement against sexual abuse you should really boycott all of Hollywood. Cancel all your subscriptions and torrenting everything that’s not an indie release. But since these custom ratings are meant to focus on giving Hollywood a message about liberal propaganda and affirmative action, I guess you can pay for the DVD if you so choose. Maybe Don Bluth is a good guy and he gets royalties. Tough call. I say just watch it if it’s free.

Anyways, hope you enjoy the film despite all its baggage. Either way, lemme’ know what you think in the comments below and post your own theories/connections if you have ’em.

Definitely see this film. Feel good movie that’s family friendly. Obviously don’t expect too much, but at least there were no infuriating political agendas shoved in it. The only thing that may irk you is that it revolves around the nerdy beta male shtick that’s been played out. Yet another fantasy role reversal where the Chad military get owned by nerds. If you’re woke to why this is such a common trope, it can distract you from the humor. But without that premise the film wouldn’t work as a comedy. Instead it’d have to be like “The Last Starfighter” and you can watch “Ready Player One” for that reboot. Anyways, they are all lovable characters, (except for Q-bert, that voice was very cringeworthy), so just relax and enjoy the cinematic junk food that’s free of political crap.

This was a pretty great film. Not gonna’ lie. It’s just sad that we can’t have these same themes in movies lead by white people and about my nation. One of the most popular animated movies (worldwide) was “Frozen” but the themes weren’t about the importance of familia, respecting your ancestors, unity, patriarchy, etc. like “Coco” was. Instead, if we’re lucky enough to get blue eyed blondes as leads at all, they have to denigrate the males and have protagonists spit on their traditions/culture. Buzzfeed puts it best: they are always “subverting the Disney formula:”



It’s just all so tiresome. So for that reason alone, you should not pay to support this film. But on top of that, they made it a statement about Trump. I did some digging and it turns out that “Coco” was in the works since 2010. I’m certain Trump’s election rhetoric made them drop everything and prioritize “Coco” but we’ll likely never know. It seems they announced production of the film right around the time that Trump seemed to be the likely winner of the Republican primaries. But even if it was all a big coincidence, all the people who worked on the film made several statements that made the film clearly an anti-Trump movie. Thankfully, though, the story was already established and nothing in the film itself is political. There were no allegories about walls or anything like that.

Well, I guess you could argue that Héctor being prevented from reuniting with his family was due to strong border control, but they don’t seem to demonize the border agents or the policy. Nor do they glorify it or make it a central point like “Black Panther” does.

 

So, I think it was more of a relatable theme for the Mexican American target audience, but without the political commentary intended. Easy to ignore, and it didn’t even cross my mind until after the film. As for the affirmative action ratings, it’s tough to say. I’d honestly get bored with only European princesses with slight variations. We are all interested in exotic lands and have been since long before Hollywood. But clearly, Pixar/Disney are just going through a checklist of minorities to make movies about. At least it was a homogenous staff so no character felt out of place, or like they didn’t earn their spot as an actor. Which also allowed for more character depth, without screams of racism because they accidentally portrayed the one dark character negatively. It’s similar to “Black Panther” in that regard. Think Hollywood is learning multiculti doesn’t work well? Nah… Oh, and there are strong females but they were 100% accurate from my experience with hot blooded Latinas and their matriarchal grandma. Lastly, the anti-god ratings are only there because it portrays a different after life, and worship of ancestors. If you’re a strict Christian, this may bug you. But they don’t mention god once, and most Mexicans are Catholic despite this aspect of their culture. So it’s up to you…

All in all, consider this a point for Hollywood in the culture war. This was really well-made, visually stunning, and had a solid plot to boot. And as a nationalist, I really do support all peoples having pride in their culture. I’m not gonna’ give the cliché “I’m not racist, I have black friends” routine, because there’s no appeasing progressives with that, and because I am racist. Hell, unlike the champagne socialists, I lived and worked in the Mexican ghetto that they avoid like the plague. (Which in this case is fitting, because the cheap maids they import are sometimes literally bringing the plague with them…) I really enjoyed my time immersing myself in other cultures, and even picked up some Spanish while teaching cute ‘lil Mexican kids English. But travel and real world experiences made me racist more than anything else. Crime and welfare statistics don’t resonate as well as memories tied to the five senses. So yeah, I am both racist and I also want these people to thrive in their own communities.

This personal tangent is more of an appeal to my rightwing brethren who get blackpilled and spend too much time filled with hate. It’s hard not to when you’re politically woke. But I think it’s important to not get too caught up in the nationalist echo chamber, while purity cycling into hate & despair. A truly intelligent person should be able to foster the rage when needed, and lighten up upon command. There’s a reason George Soros funds Black Lives Matter and other such groups. The elites have a win/win strategy. They either divide and conquer us, or subvert the nation through migration. But it’s clear that the source of these problems, the puppet masters, are the politicians. These third world migrants are useful idiots just like AntiFa. I think a truly stoic, politically savvy, and socially effective person knows how to harness these emotions for good. Here are some great clips that I think you should keep in mind before seeing “Coco” so that you can enjoy it:

But of course, this is how propaganda works. Even intelligent people see these movies and the sentimental stuff seeps into their brains. Public support for open borders or endless war, skyrockets when those pictures of dead/sad children evoke our paternalistic instincts. So don’t be fooled! Remember, they can keep their culture on the other side of our, great, big wall.

Meh. Pretty entertaining so if you want to pay for it you can. It’s what you’d expect a buddy cop sequel to be. I gave it gay ratings only because they made fun of a flamboyantly gay stereotype. Not PC at all, and no pro gay agenda. As for the other ratings, one could argue that Jackie and Chris are affirmative action hires right off the bat, and the movie is full of non whites. So it should get 5/5. But since both of them feel like they truly are funny and truly earned it, I didn’t consider them in my affirmative action rating. The 2 point score is because of all the side characters in the film. It’s much darker than the first Rush Hour.

Oh. I guess I should also give a heads up, in case you’re a nationalist Asian man reading this, because you may put off by the aggressively sexual black man creeping on local woman throughout the movie. But as an anti-feminist, I thought it was just light hearted sexual humor. Chris had the same tendencies in his “Friday” movies with black women. So try not to get too uptight about it. Especially since Jackie hooks up with the voluptuous Latina woman in this movie. For me, as an anti-feminist, I miss the days when those jokes were allowed so I thought it was funny. Idk, just depends on the viewer I guess. Speaking of which, one other thing I noticed, (now that I’m hip to the JQ), was how out of place this scene was:

It was clearly just an inside joke for the (((small community))) who runs Hollywood. It didn’t really make sense with the rest of the film or his character. No big deal, but just stood out to me, that’s all. And I guess I’m not the only one who was confused by it:



All in all, I think it’s worth checking out. And I look forward to watching the 3rd one soon. These guys really do have great chemistry and are fun to watch. Everything mentioned above is only the kind of stuff that red-pilled weirdos would notice, so you shouldn’t be pulling your hair out upon viewing. T’sall easy to brush aside…

So watch it for some decent nostalgia vibes if you feel like.

The first 40 minutes of the film were okay. I got sucked in and was super pumped about it, to be honest. Sure, it was cheesy, but it was a relatable white cast with the American entrepreneur spirit. Then it slowly started sneaking in more and more “diversity” and equated literal freaks in a freakshow with African Americans. (Really shows what the left thinks of their pets.)

This is just the same old same old. Hollywood’s revisionist history has to add 21st century sensibilities and make EVERYTHING about race. This was a huge let down and not worth analyzing in depth at all. But rest assured, all the clichés you’d expect were in it. Like evil rich white parents looking down on race mixing hopeless romantics.


They even spell out the already in-your-face symbolism with these line from a critic:

Putting folks of all kinds on stage.
All colors, shapes, sizes.
Presenting them as equals.
Another critic might have even called it
'a celebration of humanity'.

The Misguided Teen Angst of “Heathers” and the Incremental Anti-White Creep of Hollywood

"The Misguided Teen Angst of “Heathers” and the Incremental Anti-White Creep of Hollywood"

Just rewatched one of my favorite films. The casual immorality was something that stood out this time now that I am red-pilled. I’m no saint. Quite the opposite. But I wonder if future generations will watch films like this and see how promiscuous our society was, and how so many of the problems and angst were created because we stopped respecting the founding traditions & patriarch that created our civilization and kept it in tact.

I wouldn’t say this film is particularly against religion. It’s just a dark comedy that pokes fun at morbid things, while dismissing religion as an ineffective coping mechanism. You could even interpret the movie as being pro-tradition, and pro-religion since it lampoons most church goers as just going through the motions, but without true devotion and concern for what is righteous. There’s even some parallels to Romeo & Juliet themes, in regards to the disrespect the young lovers have for the ruling forces of the universe.

But I’m 95% sure that wasn’t the intent of the script. The intended message of the movie was likely to satirize modern culture and its cold response to teen suicide. The conclusion seems to be that parents just don’t understand, high school will always suck, and if only we showed more love & compassion to kids there’d be less unhappiness. But you and I both know that’s not the case. This movie was made in ’88, which makes it somewhat prophetic when you think about the school shooter epidemic we have now. A lot of the same problems are still going on today – even worse than before. But to the film’s credit, they did correctly peg lack of love as the cause of all this.


But it’s not the goofy #LoveWins kind of unconditional love we hear spouted from the left. It’s more of a lack of belonging in this modern, hyper consumerist world we live in. We have been robbed of our ancestor’s religion, race, gender, and nation. We’re not allowed to embrace those things anymore, let alone be proud of them. Instead of loyalty & pride in your community, you are only allowed to have loyalty & pride to an arbitrary group of interchangeable Africans who wear designated colors that represent your area.

(And thanks to the sexual revolution/destruction of the family, many of us don’t even have patriarchal figures to disrespect even if we wanted to.) So instead, we replace this giant hole with vice. Simple pleasures like Tinder and new iPhones. Hook up culture and shallow friendships that continually leave us unfulfilled. And yet we keep doing the same sh*t and are shocked when things only get worse.



It’s no wonder suicide is on the rise, especially with white males. I won’t argue my case for why this is, because it’ll take too long, but if you’re interested this documentary shows that most school shooters are a product of big pharma. And these two rants by Nick Fuentes or this rant by Jean-Francois Gariépy also hammer across the point about the degeneration of modern society and how hedonism won’t bring you true happiness. But if you already agree, here are two artsy fartsy shorts that perfectly exemplify what this film feels like:

1.)

2.)

The other thing I noticed with my post-red pill viewing was how they made the blue-eyed blondes the bad guys. I watched it with my Russian gf this time, and within the first 10 minutes she said, “God, American schools always seem like hell!” I explained that Hollywood exaggerates things and that actually when I went to school it was more like the movie “21 Jump Street” where the weird kids were cool. Which in all honesty is likely due to Hollywood’s transformative propaganda combined with the Columbine school shooting that scared society straight like JD’s character intended when he plotted to blow up the school. But still, even when talking to my elder family members, school was never like they portrayed it on the big screen. Or at least not that bad. Which is why we have to look at who is making these films to truly understand why school is depicted in such a way.

You see, this anti-white incrementalism has been around in Hollywood from the very beginning and only now (with absurdly obvious “Star Wars” and “Get Out” kill whitey type movies) do we notice it. But long before that, if you pay close enough attention, you’ll see that the blue-eyed blonde types gradually became the villains/morons more and more overtime:


So I did some research on where the “dumb blonde” meme began.

TL;DR Hollywood popularized the phrase 'dumb blonde.'➡Click for the full explanation.⬅

So, while watching these clichéd blondes and cartoonishly evil jocks on screen, I was reminded of 2 books I read about Hollywood. Laura Ingraham’s Shut Up & Sing and Ben Shapiro’s Primetime Propaganda.

From Ben:

So if the Jewish identity of Mel Brooks affected his creative output, do you think the Jewish identity of the “Heathers” creators would have any impact?

(Despite first glances, the JewOrNotJew site is ran by philo-semitic Jews, and is not Alt Right to say the least.)


Michael Lehmann the director:


Daniel Waters the screenwriter:

(Seems Jewish but can’t confirm.)


Winona Ryder the lead actress:


There you have it. Plain and simple. To us non-Jews we just see a movie about a quirky girl fighting off the obnoxious cool kids. Most people can relate and will cheer for the protagonist. Especially when the script makes the antagonists one dimensional monsters. But what goes over our heads is the Jewish animosity towards WASPs. And if I were to explain this outright, people would think I was a tinfoil hat nazi, no?

 

Well, aside from anecdotal evidence, Pew Research backs this up as well:
And others noticed the WASP aspect too:

I am well aware of Godwin’s Law, but does it still count if this obsession with Hitler is not your own? According to Pew Research, most Jews are secular and the biggest unifying part of their identity is “remembering the holocaust.” So surely this nazi complex plays a part in how roles are cast, (whether subconsciously or not), as Shapiro’s excerpt about Mel Brooks proves. It’s much like this clip of Jordan Peterson arguing that whether you’re an atheist or not, it doesn’t matter because you can never completely divorce yourself from the Christian society you were born into. It permeates into more than you can possibly imagine and is likely responsible for most of the way you think:

Well, then is it farfetched to think that the overly sexualized, dumb blonde shtick is likely an extension of what the Torrah teaches about goys/shiksas, since it sounds an awful lot like how the Quran talks about infidels and the chosen ones’ claim to infidel women?

But to be fair, many theologians say these passages are misinterpreted or taken out of context. And at any rate, if the largely speculative psychoanalysis about shiksas has any clout, it’s not very apparent in “Heathers” since it has a female lead. So if you’re interested in the shiksa hypothesis, you can check out what other bloggers theorize about it. For now, let’s move onto how the inferiority complex of most liberal types (gentiles and Jews alike) is manifested in Hollywood.

From Laura:

So basically, Hollywood is full of a bunch of freaks and losers with bitter memories of high school. And now the rest of the world thinks American high school is a living hell. An interesting theme throughout Ben Shapiro’s book is the debate on if Hollywood’s relationship with society is more transformative or more reflective. Clearly it’s both and a vicious cycle. At first, when Hollywood started casting more beta males, it was because the beta males who ran the industry identified with such characters, just as they identified with blue-eyed blondes being their (perceived) enemies. A great anecdote to prove this point can be found in part of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s speech about his come up:

Without a doubt, the market wanted alpha male chads with big muscles, blonde hair, and blue eyes. But the nepotistic elites insisted on giving roles to people like Dustin Hoffman and Woody Allen. They couldn’t fathom anyone identifying with Arnold because they couldn’t. Unfortunately, our society has changed (largely due to this propaganda) so more and more of us can identify with the awkward “nice guy” male feminist soyboy. So what was once a discriminating casting choice in spite of profits, has slowly become justified. Fake it ’til you make it, I suppose.

CONCLUSION:

Despite all its flaws, I still have a soft spot for the movie, its charming cast, and its amazing soundtrack. All the anti-white stuff will likely slip under the radar so it’s easily brushed aside by the viewer. Furthermore, you can think of the whole thing as a satire on the decline of Western Civilization due to lacking morals/tradition. Rather than a commentary on teen angst due to lack of love & tribal cliques. If you go into it with these perspectives in mind, I think you’ll still really enjoy the film. Pay if you’d like, because it’s pretty late to care about boycotting it at this point. Besides, Winona Ryder isn’t the most outspoken actor, only guilty by association. :^)

He bashes Trump and Trump supporters in this, but you should be able to take a joke. And to be fair, he seems like he tries to be unifying and say redeeming things about rightwingers. It’s just still incredibly lopsided. The reason I say that you shouldn’t pay for it, is because the message should be clear from “our” side. White men and rightwingers shrug off this nonstop hate more than any other demographic. (Despite what you hear about white fragility and other projection from SJWs…)

Proof of this, is in the anecdote Dave tells about his SNL appearance. He said he was just doing improv presentation and said something off the top of his head about how we should give Trump a chance or something. He’s clearly not a Trump supporter, he says he voted for Hillary, and he’s just trying to say something kind of neutral. But even that is too much for Hollywood. He was demonized and caught so much flak that he said he wish he had never said it all just because it wasn’t worth all the trouble. Bingo. That’s why The Overton Window has continuously been pushed left. They do no let up. It’s only free speech supporting rightwingers who are forgiving. Not Muslims or leftists or any sort of minority. Which is why now every commercial, movie, tv show, etc. only makes white men the morons. It’s why tv only dares to make fun of Christians, not Muslims. So, take a joke, laugh at yourself, but don’t pay to do so.

You can see here, Dave was brought on and grilled about his minuscule gesture of unity and forced to backtrack:

(If you want to avoid giving Stephen Colbert views, visit this proxy link instead.)

Other than that, the typical victim mentality was on display. Dave says he was jealous of rappers who grew up in the hood. This is one of the most harmful things to the black community in America today. As Thomas Sowell points out in “Black Rednecks & White Liberals,” what they consider “black culture” actually came from the white trash highlanders (Scots/Irish) in the American South. But since white liberals are too afraid to criticize these shitty cultural traits, they never grew out of it.

Likewise, as Devin Carbado points out, this notion of “acting white” if you speak correctly and work diligently is why so many blacks underperform.

Now, if you’ve read my other reviews, you know I don’t shy away from being a “racist piece of sh*t.” Call me what you like, I don’t care. But even race realists like me, who believe in the bell curve of race & IQ still recognize that blacks in America were MUCH better off before the 1970’s. Good intentions pave the road to hell and I know blacks can do better. Which is why I am a strong supporter of Black Nationalists like The Hoteps. And it’d be nice if these privileged celebrities got on board as well…

Dave also talks about being just rich enough to be poor around whites. Again, I see another reason why forced integration and multiculturalism doesn’t work. I think the vast majority (#notall) of people feel better and do better when they are in a homogenous community. (And before you attribute Dave’s success to being around “privileged” whites, he talks about starting his stand up career doing shows for drug dealers in NY. So that’s debatable.)

He also adds in the typical victim olympics crap, where he tries to shut up his SJW critics by going on about how bad it is as a black man in America. Pretty frustrating to watch this dead horse beaten to a pulp on his 4th special in a row. But overall, he has some good insight, great laughs, and his partisan bashes clearly come from a place of love and not animosity like the rest of Hollywood. So check it out if you have free time. The reason I actually went and watched all four of his specials in a row, is because I saw this video analyzing the brilliance of Chappelle’s performance. Watch this if you’re still on the fence about him and these specials.

Again, pretty funny. Worth watching, just like the past 2 specials. But I wanna’ take the time to nitpick some things.

He said South Africa should have been a blood bath. Well, Earth to Dave… it is a bloodbath and has been since Apartheid ended but the mainstream media hides this because it doesn’t fit their race baiting narrative you swallow.

TL;DW: The standard of living for both whites and blacks was better under Apartheid. Likewise, the notion that South Africa belongs to blacks is wrong. Dutch settlers built a civilization in barren land that no one lived in or was native to. And it’s just random tribes that migrated to benefit from white civilization, who are now demanding it be given to them as a birthright. While horrifically torturing innocent whites in the process.

 

Also, he joked about how black women aren’t #METOO-ing people because they are too proud and loyal to their black brothers.
And then immediately after talks about his Asian wife. LOL! C’mon, Dave. Be a little introspective:

Funny show. Good commentary all in all.

Still bizarre to see how far the victim mentality goes in the black community. A multimillionaire goes on stage and in each special whines about slavery and how evil whites treat him as they cheer him on. He kept saying: “It’s a tough time for the blacks.” He was referring to the Black Lives Matter BS the media goes nuts with. But I don’t need to get into the statistics of why that’s all BS because you probably already know. Instead let’s take a foreigners’ perspective. Both Japanese people and African Africans are annoyed at the African American victim mindset:

So, one of the tell tale signs in this special that shows Dave’s mentality is how he said he was expecting a racist banana for 20 years during his career. So when it finally happened, of course he thought it was racist. But when you google the guy who did it, it’s clearly a hipster f*gg*t and the whole thing was truly coincidental.

I experienced this myself with one of the black girls I dated back in the States. She was over analyzing and reading between the lines inventing racist experiences that definitely didn’t happen. I thought she was crazy and too sensitive but gave her benefit of the doubt for a few of the times. Fast forward a few years when I was living in Japan as an expat and I had the same dynamic with my Japanese gf but in reverse. I kept explaining how I was positive so and so responded to me in such and such way because I was a Gaijin!

I think it’s a little of column A and a little of column B. If Dave’s other anecdote about being hit with a snowball and called the “N word” was true, then I get why he’s uptight. And it can create a tense mindset and vicious cycle. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything on the snowball story because I guess he dropped the charges. Since he’s a comedian it’s hard to know what aspects are hyperbole, absurdism, or reality. But now that we have body cams and CCTV footage, and even with this banana peel story being google-able, I highly doubt Dave’s side of the story. Most likely, he is a race OBSESSED man and 90% of his bad experiences are as bullsh*t as the NAACP president’s racial profiling experience:

Nevertheless, I still find Dave hilarious and this stand up was clever and insightful on variety of subjects. (Even the commentary on race relations despite the victim spin.) So support the man by renting it or buying the DVD…. that is, if you aren’t boycotting NetFlix.

Pretty funny. Plus he gets bonus points for offending trannies in this special. Look at this f*gg*t. He responded exactly like the easily offended Millennials that Dave lampooned in his special:


I mean, c’mon. Dave even tells an anecdote about a white woman screaming at him at a show, and how you can’t beat black dudes in the “victim olympics.” Guess Tyler didn’t get the message. (I don’t care enough to read the blog post, and am not sure which routine this blogger was talking about or the timeline of events. Doesn’t really matter though because there’s an endless supply of outraged queers anyway.) Not much else to say. Check it out if you like racism, rape jokes, and other uncomfortable expressions of social commentary.

Interesting documentary. Fascinating man. And a bit of an as*h*le.

As with “The Barkley Marathon” documentary, the baby boomers may rub you the wrong way. One old geezer is convinced he saw Charles shrink to the size of a gnome and swears by it. There are also some truly hideous dumb broads that illustrate what the myopic, self-indulgent, hippie lifestyle eventually turns you into. A bearded cat lady.

But even though they were Bukowski’s peers, he hated them too so don’t be deterred. One of his most famous poems, (the one this film is named after), is all about the red pill blues:


Still resonates today, huh?

He was a very hard worker, with a “Protestant work ethic” that he didn’t betray, and yet he recognized what a disgusting and pitiful system we live under now. He was a vagabond with legitimate grievances who still put in 15+ years at the post office. A true working man’s hero, he slaved away and sacrificed so that he could do what he loved. Ironically, he achieved the American Dream by bashing it. Much like Michael Moore, but more like-able. An interview with his publisher puts things into perspective, detailing how Bukowski was a functioning alcoholic with a machine-like production of literature despite working full time. This was only possible because he rejected the modern world and lived in minimalist poverty for decades. Much more respectable than the bourgeois beatniks he’s lumped in with. But to be fair, he definitely was a degenerate hedonist as well; something this documentary doesn’t shy away from. Instead it just explores the root causes and lets the audience make up their own mind on if Bukowski was more of a product of his hot-blooded genes or his rough childhood.

Speaking of which, I found out that he was born with 1/4th Jewish blood and somehow managed to still be anti-semitic. (Supposedly.) And you see some of that briefly in the film as he rants about Jewish attorneys or drives with an iron cross over his rear view mirror. But I get the vibe he’s just a drunkard in a non-PC era, with a chip on his shoulder after living in predominantly Jewish Hollywood for so long. And irrespective of his impetus, it’s such a bittersweet breath-of-fresh-air to witness unfiltered passion rage on. A window into the generation that spit on tradition and forsake western civilization, but also a window into what kind of expression was once possible before social media lynch mobs and SJW censorship.

Conclusion? If you’re not into literature or American history, then you may want to skip this film. Especially if you’ve never heard of Bukowski. But you don’t have to be a poet to appreciate this movie either. God knows I’m certainly not– I’d only briefly heard some of his poems before, but was still captivated throughout the doc. So check it out if you feel like, and pay to do so if you can afford it.

Man, I love documentaries. I realize this more and more as I compare them with my movie-going experience with the usual Hollywood tripe. This one was great too. I don’t want to ruin anything, so just watch it when you have time. One thing I will say, though, is that this has some nice themes. Typically, documentaries present as neutral observers and merely dramatize things for emotional responses. But this one had a fitting “moral of the story” interwoven with the philosophies espoused by the eccentrics on screen.

Likewise, not all documentaries have a story arch, but since this is a race, there’s a natural climax to follow. Which is why it’s slow in the beginning. So give it some time and pace yourself. Also, fair warning, the chain-smoking Baby Boomer who doesn’t practice what he preaches may rub you the wrong way at first. But as you learn more about the event and the family of participants, you may find it all rather endearing.

Pay to watch, and give yourself an hour ‘n half to get inspired!

I’m sure by now, you’ve already heard the theories about how Black Panther is actually Alt Right because of its protectionist/ethnocentric themes. But they threw in a scene at the very end, during the credits, (no spoilers), that makes me wonder if it was added last minute in post production for fear of rightwingers making a point. Who knows?

Anyways, the film was okay. Just another typical super hero movie. There were 2 white guys in the film; one was a cartoonishly evil South African who called Wakandans savages repeatedly. The other guy was a consistently dumbfounded CIA agent who fumbled about in awe while being condescended to by all the super advanced Wakandans.

Other than that, because the cast was mainly black, the plot could include some variety in the characters. There were actual brown bad guys and multidimensional, flawed POC. Crazy, huh? This is really what redeemed the movie. It allowed for some interesting (whether intentional or not) self criticism. No spoilers, but there was some social commentary on the inadequacy of black fathers and black on black violence.

Minor spoiler

 

Of course we all know that the main premise of the film is that if it wasn’t for evil colonialism stealing the wealth, then Africa would be rich. So let’s look into that a bit…

The accepted narrative taught in school:

The reality:


 

“But other than exploiting resources the West was built on slavery!”

Yeah, about that…


But since I went in expecting an insane “everything is whitey’s fault” message, I was happily surprised. It wasn’t that bad. Especially when you take into account the self criticism of the black community that was part of the film. Likewise, the casting was great. A truly a charming lot, especially Black Panther’s sister. She is friggin’ adorable.



And Black Panther’s character finds a nice balance of being masculine but not a macho trope. Lots of good relationships on display with subtle nuances expressed wonderfully by the actors. So, I must give props to the casting director(s), but I’ll reiterate and say that I really think it was possible because the film was >90% black and allowed for the writers to conceive without concern for twitter outrage mobs. They were relatable, human.

Maybe should be your takeaway. Both the meta and the plot itself prove that diversity is not our strength. Perhaps all races can avoid conflict, and reach our fullest potential by living in largely homogenous societies. Memes and banter aside, black separatists like The Hoteps have my respect. And if you, dear reader, come at this film from the perspective of an ally to the black empowerment groups and try to just ignore the evil colonial narratives, you might actually be able to enjoy it.

If you’ve never seen this film, you should. Quite bittersweet watching it again recently. It wasn’t that long ago that we could cathartically laugh at the differences between our cultures. I know that it was just Hollywood fantasy and that multiculturalism almost always leads to tribal tension. Case and point being Patrice O’Neal’s savage roast:

(Language warning!)

But at least in ’98 we could bond through fiction. Now even that isn’t allowed. Can you imagine if they made “White Men Can’t Jump” today? Think it would have the same “Rush Hour” type vibe of relatable social satire that lampoons/venerates both adversaries equally?

Pshh. C’mon. Only cartoon villain or traitorous cuck for white roles. You know the deal. And since SJW’s are insatiable, they’d have to make Woody Harrelson an Asian chick. Turns out “Rush Hour 4” just got confirmed as in production. Don’t get your hopes up. Get ready for a “Ghostbusters” style reboot where Jackie Chan is played by a woman and Chris Tucker becomes a non-binary tranny.

Anyways, the original “Rush Hour” is pretty great, wholesome, and actually humorous since the jokes are based in reality. No overt agenda noticeable. I didn’t give any affirmative action rating because both actors were clearly picked due to their charm and skills. And their race makes sense because of the premise.

Check it out today for a wave of nostalgia!

I was a big fan of the “Broken Windows Theory” explanation, (popularized by Malcolm Gladwell), of why crime was greatly reduced in the 90’s. But then I read “Freakonomics” and discovered their opposing theory that claimed legal abortion was the real reason crime dropped, since less unwanted hooligans born = less unwanted crimes committed.

Occam’s Razor and my gut say the abortion theory held much more sway. But what’s with the false ultimatum? Isn’t it just a percentage debate? Several factors lead to the decrease in crime, and abortion was just the biggest factor, right?

Idk. I started searching around and was surprised to find that a founding father of the race realist movement, Mr. Steve Sailer, was one of the earliest critics of the abortion theory. Strange, no? Most Alt Right type people are in favor of legal abortion for obvious reasons…

Steve may be a eugenics mad man and “pro-choice” for all I know; his beef is just with the “unreliable” source data. If you’re interested, here were some American Renaissance comments that helped sum things up:

Likewise, here are links to both the Freakonomics and Steve Sailer posts that collect the back and forth of the ongoing debate between them. This is above my pay grade so I’ll let you decide.

Anyways, whether you disagree or not, they bring up a lot of intriguing theories and peculiarities. The section on Sumo wrestling was the most fascinating by far. Check it out when you have time!

Pretty good. The documentary was surprisingly fair. Simultaneously dishing out criticism and praise; with of course more of the latter since this is a posthumous TV special walking on egg shells. Don’t worry though, ‘cuz Bill Burr is here to cut through the BS and dismantle the Steve Jobs hype:

All stand up should be taken with a grain of salt, but Bill makes some very valid points, some of which are actually addressed in the film. Like this interview with one of Steve’s ex partners at Pixar:

Regardless of what you think of Jobs, he did revolutionize the industry and lived an interesting life while doing so. So love him or hate him, it’s worth taking a moment to get engrossed in this biopic.

Great documentary. No political agenda crap added in at all. Fascinating story of a guy with a few screws loose who lived ahead of his time. This is the second time I’ve watched this movie and I found it even more riveting the second time ’round.

Not much to say about it without ruining your viewing experience so just trust me and watch it. Especially if you fit on either of the bottom two political compass quadrants, and don’t like the direction society is going with respect to the dystopian surveillance. Since I have nothing unique to say about this film, why not read my review of “Snowden” or watch these videos that touch the the same subject matter:

As Braving Ruin says above, you really can’t avoid surveillance unless you want to live completely off the grid and outside the modern economy. But you can limit the amount of psychological corruption you subject yourself to. Zuccerberg may tempt you, but fight it! Don’t give in! Delete that sh*t right now!

"“War Dogs” is redpilled on the JQ"
Author Rating
4 1star1star1star1star

The anti-patriotism rating is maxed out because the entire movie is a critique of our Military Industrial Complex. If you identify with the paleocons more than the neocons that hijacked the GOP, then you won’t mind this critique because there are no jabs at soldiers or anything like that. And may I remind you that a Republican president is the one who coined the term “Military Industrial Complex” :

Even Laura Ingraham, a staunch defender of Bush throughout his presidency, has realized how the globalists have been screwing the American people from both parties for decades:

So, be sure to check out the film. It’s very redpilled. So much so, that the film addresses the most taboo of redpills, the JQ.

From The Guardian interview with the director, Todd Phillips:


Dead Kennedys sang about it,” he says. “That’s what I grew up on. It’s such bullsh*t they sell people, that war is about protecting your freedom, but meanwhile people are making billions and billions of dollars. It’s like, ‘F**k this, the system is rigged.’ The system is set up for the rich to get richer and everybody else to stay where they are. It’s a really depressing reality, and the more you can shine a light on it through movies and articles and books, the better it is.” And besides, he says, “It just felt like, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to do the 23-year-old Jewish version of Scarface?’”

He admires how ballsy the War Dogs leads were in real life. Despite their unscrupulous exploits, these two underdogs took on the government and, until they started cutting corners, won big-time. “To me the guys are heroes,” says Phillips. “The government knew that they couldn’t source 100m rounds of AK ammo in the middle of a drought after two Iraq wars. So they went to these two kids knowing they were gonna source it in a shady way, and as long as nobody knows, wink wink we’re cool. For me the film is an indictment on the US government and their process of procurement, and the guys are kind of awesome.”


So, the film is a Jewish Scarface. Okay. Cool premise. And yet another example of #OscarsSoJewish and how there’s an over representation of Jews in the media:

Except after digging into Todd Philipps a bit, it seems like he might be trying to make a point by poking fun and criticizing his own people as he’s known to do. Apparently he got Mel Gibson to do a cameo in “The Hangover 2” but the cast was angry about it so Mel’s role was swapped out. And it also turns out that Todd Philipps frequently cameos as a stereotypical Jew himself, and even wears the same “chai” necklace that Jonah Hill does in “War Dogs.”

 

 

 

Minor Spoilers

So is Todd a Jew who’s redpilled on the JQ? It’s not out of the question. There are several Alt Right Jews who love their people and yet still agree with the grievances that goys have. Perhaps that’s why Zach Galifianakis alluded to an inside joke they have where they say Todd is “the worst Jew in Hollywood.” Idk, I doubt it. To me it seems more likely that he is at most: an anti-Zionist, secular, Democrat Jew. And that any redpills about Jewish involvement in U.S. foreign policy was accidental. Realistically, he is just having some fun by satirizing Jews and their tendencies while mainly focusing on criticizing the American government.

(Minor spoilers and language warning!)

Regardless of his motivations and intended subtext, I say go see the film and pay to do so! Very fascinating story.

Sequels usually suck. It’s hard to balance giving what the audience liked in the first place, and also giving them something new without deviating too much from what clicked originally. Sadly, this film was just the same exact formula, but with slight changes. If it was an homage or two, it would have been cute. But the whole thing felt like one throwback after another, and just came off as lazy.

This one was also more feminist. Not horribly so, but enough to irk the viewer. And unlike the first one that featured Chinese railroad workers without making an overtly anti Western message, “Shanghai Knights” made it very clear how evil the British Empire was. Evil colonial bastards

No spoilers, but here are some lines that stood out and felt unnecessary:


The keeper of the Imperial Seal.

Just the man I was looking for.

A woman.

You Chinese are very progressive.

Pei Pei's married to her work in San Francisco.

Modern woman.

She's gonna fight my battles for me.

Come on. Let's go.

What? What are you doing?

It's kinky. I like it.

It is my dream that the Chinese people

will follow India's example and one day embrace British rule.

The Chinese are very proud.

They place family and honor above all else.

Well, I'm sure we can break them of that.

You've got to hand it to the Chinese.

They're awfully ingenious, Lord, aren't they?

Does your incompetence know no bounds?!

The movie had Owen Wilson make a bunch of jokes at the expense of the British, bragging about The American Revolution and poking fun at their teeth. So at first glance, my anti-patriotic rating may seem off, but upon closer inspection you’ll see that Owen Wilson is satirizing the obnoxiously proud American abroad, and that both countries are being lambasted.

Oh, and for anyone who cares, the same willy nilly free love continued in this one. They just wrote Lucy Liu out of the script and said she was busy working in another city. And even though Owen Wilson gets married at the end of the first one  he is single again without explanation. The movie is funnier with him continuing his horn dog shtick, so it was a smart choice on the writers’ part. But that means all the same points I made about the first film apply to the sequel as well. We’re supposed to cheer the white protagonist on as he attacks other white men, subverts the government, and dates outside his “tribe.”

“Only an evil racist would care about race mixing! Why even point it out, ya’ evil nazi!?”

Yeah. It’s no big deal in these films. But that’s partly because I’m a white man and my monkey brain doesn’t get “triggered” (for lack of a better word) when I identify with the man. So despite if I like the couple or not, I point ’em out regardless.

Mainly, because part of STFUhollywood.com’s purpose is to talk about race in cinema when no one else is willing to. And also because it’d be hypocritical if I only complained when a black man was with a white woman in films. C’mon, how do you think Asian men feel when they see these kinds of scenes? Lastly, because this kind of incrementalism is exactly why Hollywood depictions are so bat sh*t insane right now. They always start with the occasional, socially acceptable, boundary pushing stuff. And then they get to the point where EVERY commercial looks like this:

To give benefit of the doubt, I think many writers just want to push an anti racist agenda, and the anti-white part stems from the white guilt of our society as a whole. Like, if they ever portray a minority in a negative light there will be a million Buzzfeed articles and social media “””protests””” the next day. Colorblind whites get raked over the coals for innocent mishaps:

So you have to constantly keep race in the forefront of your mind to survive. I know many of these regressives are nefarious and were anti white from the get go. But I think there’s a huge number of well-intentioned SJW’s in the movement as well, who ironically foster even more racism in their quest to end it.

Okay. Rant over.

Should you see the film? No. Not because of political stuff, it was pretty apolitical all things considered. Just because it’s a bad movie. Only watch it if someone else insists.

The white male protagonist is effeminate and incompetent. No big deal, though, because it’s a buddy cop movie and they chose to make Jackie Chan the straight man. But Jackie normally does slapstick humor with his fighting, so why not make him the goofy one? Well, they did the same in “Rush Hour” so it’s not a white guy thing, per se. When you compare any American to the robotic / hierarchical Far East that generally focuses on saving face, it makes perfect sense.

There’s some Chinese railwork slave labor stuff in there but they didn’t make it all the white devil’s fault. Likewise, there were some savage native American tribes counterbalanced with peaceful and wise ones. For every aspect of the movie that could have been interpreted as a jab at conservatives, there was an equal and opposite scene following it.

Looking back from 2018, I can see how the film is stacked against white men. They make up the majority of the bad guys and the one white guy we are supposed to empathize with sides with other tribes. In the context of the movie, it makes perfect sense and I still root for Owen Wilson’s character. But you may be irked if you have the knowledge of how cinema has evolved from these subtle tones of cooperation and tolerance in 2000, into parading blatant traitors as heroes while fostering self hatred amongst the audience in 2018. We all know, that if the characters were based proportionately to crime statistics and average personality traits for their demographic then you’d have to be mental to cheer the protagonist on. But that’s why this agitprop is so effective. It is both subtle, (so anyone who calls it out is seen as a nutjob), and unrealistic, (so audience members internalize morals and pattern recognition divorced from truth).

Ann Coulter’s “¡Adios, America!: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole” demonstrates this best:

A sixteen-year-old Hmong girl who was gang-raped and forced into prostitution by some Hmong men never told her parents about it, explaining that her mother would only say, “You deserved it.” Like I haven’t heard that before! This exact episode has appeared on Law & Order a dozen times, but the rapists were always preppie fraternity guys.

Spoilers!

Overall, it was very heartwarming and worth sitting through.

The white protagonist is a fumbling pansy, but that’s his character as the geeky scientist trope. Definitely easy to ignore and not get too annoyed by. There were a couple scenes and lines in there about a woman being strong and tough, while making the white men seem like threatened bigots blind to how badass chicks can be. ◔_◔ But that is also to be expected. Just a cheesy family flick, so don’t take it too seriously. Most of it you can ignore. Besides, there are tons of jokes about different cultures and crossdressing that couldn’t be done today without shouts of transphobia and whitewashing.

If you didn’t already know, the original novel and film adaptation didn’t have a Chinese sidekick. Jackie Chan’s character, was a Frenchman. I’m normally a stickler about this stuff, but I really don’t think this was a forced affirmative action decision. Jackie Chan was very popular at the time and it seems more gimmicky of a decision than a political one.

One thing that made me think, was how they portrayed the stupidest character of the film as a redhead. They don’t explicitly say it, but red head typically means Irish, no? I did some research and the guy who plays the ginger is Scottish.

¯\_(_)_/¯

Who knows? None of this matters, and I wish this crap didn’t pass my mind at all, but sadly Pandora’s Box of Identity Politics has been opened. If every tribe but one acts in its own selfish interests, ignoring it won’t make it go away. What are you, a commie? Think you can fight human nature and get everyone to agree to be stoically selfless for the greater good of society as a whole? C’mon… that’s why Hollywood has gotten so bad in the first place. Time to change strategies and stick up for ourselves. No more shrugging it off. They won’t stop pushing until every film is like Star Wars and Black Panther. Anyways, pretty sure I didn’t see a single other redhead in the film, so it seems reasonable to think they type-casted Ewen Bremner for a reason.


To an outsider, this stuff usually goes unnoticed. Like when I watched movies with my Russian girlfriend, she wouldn’t pick up on the subtle accents of the southern Americans that are always depicted as dumb hicks. Nor do most Russian audiences realize that entire films like “Three Billboards” are an attack on the rural parts of the United States. Likewise, most Westerners don’t detect the “Idiot from Osaka” trope in Japanese film. Go figure, outsiders don’t recognize local intersectionalities. I guess it’s true what the progressives say: “Racism = Prejudice + Power”

:^)

Spoiler

Frankly, I don’t think this is a big problem. If you can’t satirize reality, then the film loses any depth. You can’t relate to the characters because the writers try so hard to not offend. I just find it fascinating to explore this now that SJW’s got me “woke.” Turns out Hollywood’s negative depictions aren’t just a problem for “people of color.” Well, unless you consider gingers honorary coloreds…

Okay. Rant over. Should you see the film?

Meh. Don’t go out of your way to see it but if it’s on, you can chuckle a bit and be entertained without an enraging agenda.

Worth a watch. Overall good moral to the story, albeit not very traditional. This goes into the whole chicken or the egg debate with Hollywood of if its plots have a transformative or reflective relation with society. Whether you like it or not, the bizarre new social norms of courtship and divorce portrayed in the movie may be relatable to your own life. There was also brief dialogue about feminism and women’s studies in the beginning, but the film was made in 2003 so it ended there. No spoilers, but the end of the film may be interpreted as gynocentric. It promotes values that you’ll agree with, but they fail to explore the part that females play in the destruction of healthy relationships. Ah well, it’s a film targeted towards women; would you expect a James Bond movie to play devil’s advocate against womanizing?

Aside from analyzing the political stuff, the main love interests were very charming. I definitely got sucked in, rooting for them to get together. The plot was not a typical RomCom premise, but the way they portrayed the side characters definitely was cliché. Little to no depth, so the audience doesn’t feel conflicted when rooting for X and Y couple to get together. That’s okay, though. That wasn’t the focus of the movie. Another small thing that bugged me was the symbolism throughout. Pay attention to the colors and clothing. At first it was clever, but they overdid it and kept literally pointing to it in each scene.

Check it out, though! Definitely worth seeing, at least once.

Not a lot to say about the film. Senseless comedy. Not preachy, though, so that’s great. A man gets raped and there’s some gay jokes in it. Definitely feels dated because of that stuff. In fact, the very premise of pick up artists couldn’t be a blockbuster movie unless they were beaten to death or 100% female pick up artists.

It’s weird rewatching films now that I’m “redpilled” because I realize how nihilistic and amoral they are. Even the inconspicuous ones. Like most romantic comedies, the characters are all selfish and only focus on their feelings. Disregarding any sacred oaths or promises, and the whole time the audience is okay with it because the bad guys are so one dimensionally evil you can’t possibly sympathize when they are betrayed.

Whatever. No big deal since this is just a comedy for the sake of comedy. Still weird seeing these actions get normalized. I was gonna’ write about how it encourages hypergamy, but the cliché of romcoms is that the rich guy is the one the lead female leaves for the starving artist type. Is “tummy feels hypergamy” a thing? If you contribute to the destruction of the family unit because of emotions instead of financial greed, is it any better? Should we shun the gold digger or the impoverished single mother more? Damn it. Why can’t I just watch a movie without these kinds of thoughts barging in? Damn redpill… Okay, ’nuff overanalyzing. This movie is 1 part obscene and 1 part humorous, topped with a Libertarian Vine Vaughn icing to complete the intellectual junk food package. Hits the spot!

I had no idea the first time I watched it, but it turns out John McCain had a cameo for a fraction of a second. You’d prolly miss it too if you’ve never seen it before. I’m just wondering if it may have been a prank of sorts, and a dog whistle to let the audience know that the whacky politician family that the story revolves around, is a hyper conservative family. Guilty by association. Afterall, we’re all sexually repressed and violent. Who knows, though? Even if it is a dog whistle, I could give a rat’s a** because I’m so used to unnecessary, brazen, anti-Republican exposition jammed into films at the most absurd times, that this appearance didn’t phase me at all. Could also be because I hate McCain’s guts…

In conclusion, go ahead and take an hour or so to laugh at stupid sex jokes with little-to-no political agenda.

Good premise. Thrilling cinematography. Worth watching.

You see, they changed the message of the novel, (which was apparently very pro-life, anti-immigration quota, and all about strong morals being necessary for a healthy society), and tried to turn it into an Antifa type movie. The messages aren’t shoved down your throat like most Hollywood movies, so thankfully it leaves it up to interpretation. People like the fat, lisping, Marxist Boomer f**got: Žižek, interpret this movie as showing late stage Capitalism and the dangers of holding onto your roots.

I, on the other hand, interpret the film as a warning of our multicultural hell hole dystopia to come if we don’t reverse current trends. It’s not a coincidence that George Soros and KGB both support BLM. It’s a classic divide and conquer tactic. Some people say that lowering the average IQ of the populous in order to create an obedient consumer class is the goal of this forced demographic replacement. Idk. The motives are hard to prove, and quickly get into conspiracy theory territory. So let’s avoid any convoluted conjecture and keep it Occam’s Razor for now.

Basically, free market conservatives forsake the working class and the future of their nation’s stability for the sake of cheap labor. Whereas, the leftists love to import new voters while getting “social justice” bonus points. And the foreign powers like KGB and Soros encourage this because when civil unrest occurs, government overreach is “justified.” And when a nation’s power is centralized, it’s easier to subvert, bribe, and control the country as an outsider.

The CIA does the same thing but much worse, we do straight up military coups. As well as other forms of divide and conquer tactics like funding revolutionaries/extremists since most of these nations are ethnically homogenous. It’s just part of foreign policy I guess. Anyways, I’m ranting. The point is, that’s what was in the forefront of my mind while watching this movie. And what I hope is in the forefront of yours.

Proximity + Diversity = Conflict

We already see this today in our post 1965 Immigration Act / British Nationality Act 1948 lives. Even the star of the film, Clive Owen, agrees with that:

 

For more on the differences between the book and the film, click below. Spoiler warning, though!

Conclusion? Disregard Alfonso Cuarón’s attempts to make you feel bad for refugees and immigrants. Instead, take a good look at the hell hole you’ll be living in if you continue to ignore basic realities of human nature.

I highly recommend watching this film, so don’t let the “watch if free” make you think otherwise. It’s just the progressive agenda that completely pissed on the original, and the replacement of various white characters that bugged me. So…

*cough* torrent *cough*

Goofy and nostalgic movie (nostalgic for the era and style of film; this was actually the first time I ever watched it). Great to watch when you want to relax and laugh after a long day.

The whole movie is one big tranny joke. It’s chock-full of gay jokes, race jokes, and fat jokes as well. You don’t realize what you got until it’s gone, I guess. I grew up watching “Married… with Children” and all sorts of low-brow comedy. Then, after a while I grew a taste for more dry humor and more esoteric (admittedly f**gy hipster nu-male) type stuff. But then the SJW’s made everything taboo, so comedy started to die. So, take a moment to bask in politically incorrect humor for an hour or so.

Oh, and 3 political bonuses:

1.) Rob Schneider is a Republican.

2.) The moral of the story was that spoiled, pretty girls should be thankful for their privilege. Reminds me of this TV special where a feminist went undercover and realized men have it harder:

3.) A blasian character is embarrassed of her Korean heritage and tries to act black as a running gag. Great social commentary on the reality of our anti-white / Afrophilic culture.

Minor spoiler:

Meh. You can support the film, but if you never see it, you’re not missing out. It’s made by the same guys who did “Napoleon Dynamite” and is really just a second rate version of that. Lots of dry, weird humor. There’s absolutely no way that the same film could be made today. Lots of “Tim & Eric” style ugly people who were casted solely due to their hideous appearance. And tons of jabs at Mexico for being a sh*thole. Not to mention the “whitewashing” that Jack Black does as a German/British/Russian/Jewish man, playing a half Mexican. And then there’s the midget fight scenes…

Ha… now that I think about it, this movie was pretty great. Watch the full thing or just random clips on YouTube. Either way, there’s no agenda being pushed so it’s okay in my book.

Great movie! Amazing motifs that are cleverly depicted. It will inspire you, warm your heart, and leave you with philosophical questions to ponder in regards to your own life. Definitely go see it!

The “diversity” in the cast was well placed and fitting because the script was all about jazz and show biz. Except for the opening scene which tries to jam as many non-whites in as possible to reach their quota:

Oh, and these unimportant characters, (who don’t even have any lines if I recall correctly), that get screen time in the middle of the movie for no reason other than to get two birds with one stone: 1.) segue time passage scene and 2.) SJW bonus points:

Don’t worry, though. All the truly talented African American jazz musicians throughout the film makeup for the patronizing affirmative action hires. Also, John Legend’s character is flawed and multidimensional so it helps to add some realness to him instead of being just another infallible POC character like the ones Hollywood has been vomiting out lately.

So, ignore these minor flaws and check it out today!

Just recently watched this movie again. It was made a few years before 911 so the parallels with how we treat barbaric Muslim invaders is purely accidental. Afterall, Bush didn’t coin the Orwellian “Islam is a religion of peace” lie until after the attacks. But boy oh boy, is this film right on the money. I feel stupid giving such a slapstick movie 4 stars, but it does a great job of making fun of various stereotypes equally. Stupid hippies, warhawk neocon generals, naive academics, jingoist hicks, etc. It’s really saying something about how bad Hollywood has gotten, when all it takes to make me happy is objective satire, but oh well.

The really great part about this film, (in a sick & twisted way), is how it perfectly depicts the regressive liberal mindset. No matter how many times the aliens betray their trust, the humans keep blaming themselves, and keep pontificating some new excuse to continue being doormats.




“Don’t run, Islam is a religion of peace.”

It’s like how regressives never consider that maybe other cultures don’t respect peace at all. Maybe they only want to conquer and rape. Maybe they hate you for your very way of life and will never adopt your values. The big difference is that the aliens seem to have better “taqiyya” game than the Muslims who explain perfectly clear why they hate and fight us. And yet, we continue to let them walk all over us again and again.

Steven Crowder points out how countries have gone to war for much less than what the modern migrant scum have been doing.  It’s quite heartbreaking to see Western Civilization willingly kill itself and accept such abuse, but you gotta’ laugh at the absurdity of it once in a while, or else you’ll go mad.

So, turn your brain off for a few moments to enjoy this goofy, nostalgic disaster film!

Good premise. Nice actors. Worth watching.

Parts of the film seem like unnecessary pain and suffering for the sake of it, but that’s okay. It’s to be expected of a drama chick flick. It’s done well enough to get you sucked into their world and invested emotionally.

The script contained two slights against conservatives that irked me and seemed unnecessary. So I did some research comparing the book with the film. More often than not, my hunch is proven right after sleuthing around. For example, when a “based on a true story” script randomly changes the ethnicity of real person to fit a diversity quota. But in this instance, it looks like the book author is just as bat sh*t as J.K. Rowling, so the script changes weren’t a big deal…

Conclusion? It’s hard to get upset at Hollywood for injecting politics unnecessarily when the author is doing it herself. I doubt she was upset about the storyline changes.

Overall, it was a cute movie and the chemistry between the cast made it worth the watch. Support it if you’re not a stickler about giving money to leftists.

Don’t waste your time. Per usual, any Hollywood movie based on a small town will be incredibly racist in its portrayal of Southern whites. With – of course – no sense of irony or self awareness in regard to its blatant hypocrisy as it spouts off platitudes about the horrors of small minded bigots.

I can hang with the stupid Southerner trope even though it’s been done to death. Not with this film, though. It’s a caricature of a caricature since the British director knows even less about the American South than the average champagne socialist director in L.A.

There are only five worthwhile white men in the film, and even coming up with five is a stretch.

Spoilers

The rest are cartoonishly rude and dumb. Do not waste your time. Avoid at all costs.

Review / Rant:

Pretty much everything I said about the first film applies to this one. Morgan Freeman plays a smaller part so they add a few more black extras in the background. A latinX professor for a brief cameo. And they make up for their lack of diversity with a few “strong female leader” moments, but you can just let it slide as teen angst I guess.

One thing I really like is how they make the characters relatable. They never make just one dimensional bad guys. For example, a USDA health inspector comes to visit and is just doing his job. He wants what’s best for the dolphins and reluctantly enforces regulations. Likewise, another antagonist is the owner of the aquarium: a businessman explaining that if they don’t capitalize they won’t be able to save as many animals as they have been. For such a cheesy movie, I am always impressed with the premise and character development underneath.

On the negative side of things, it feels like one of those straight to DVD Disney channel movies, and the overall arch is very similar to the first one. But that’s always hard to do when making sequels; stray too much and the audience lose their connection. Stay to close to the original and we feel like it’s a rip off rehash. So let’s cut them some slack. All things considered it was worth the 2 hours and may be worth renting.

Review / Rant:

Cute family movie. There are lots of broken homes in the plot, but it’s just for easy sympathy points from the audience. I didn’t sense any agenda being pushed in this regard; the father figures were all respectable men. Another really refreshing theme (perhaps unintentional) was showing how the education system has failed boys. Without any spoilers, the protagonist has trouble in school and spaces out because he is not challenged with hands on, technical stuff. Instead, lowest common denominator crap. So if you are a homeschooler or have suffered through subpar public schools as I did, then that will be a nice bonus.

Likewise, it was a breath of fresh air to see a businessman who was not a one dimensional boogie man. And despite it being about wildlife rehabilitation, there were no hippie climate change anti human progress motifs. Shocker, right? The opening scene starts by showing fisherman accompanied by ominous music as they disregard the ecosystem. But this is totally understandable, because it was the malfeasance of the fisherman that caused the dolphin’s injuries in the first place. Respect for nature is something we can all get on board with, and something you should instill in your children.  Keyword is “respect” not “idealistic worship.” Throughout the film there are other fisherman who are portrayed as responsible and multidimensional. Clear divide between killing and eating fish as a fisherman, while simultaneously being devoted to helping the high IQ marine life. Much better balance than the typical oversimplified noble savage, (human = bad / nature = good), type crap we normally see…

As far as the actual content of the film, it’s just a typical feel-good cheesy family movie. Lots of clichés an bad acting, but overall very cute and decent enough to get you sucked in. Definitely check it out. The one thing that irked me was that they had to inject “””DIVERSITY””” into the “based on a true story” storyline, by replacing this guy:

With this guy:

If you can get past the (white guilt spawned) black savior trope, it’s a good way to kill 2 hours, and even worth spending money on.

TL;DR “meh…”

The movie was okay. Same ‘ol worn out pro nature, noble savage, man/industrialization is evil, BS from Hollywood. It wasn’t 100% stupid white men being shown up by women but a good portion of it. Sure enough, black dude is a scientist, every war America has fought was unjustified, and if we were just kind like the women, then the perfect harmony of nature would still be in tact. Yadda yadda yadda. So sick of this narrative… But there were a couple good white guys too, an evil black guy, etc. So it was somewhat balanced, just not something you should go out of your way to see. If it’s the only thing on, and you have to pay for it, go ahead. If you miss it, oh well.

Review / Rant:

Yup. “Based On a True Story” movies are the way to go. Best way to ensure minimal Hollywood BS. (Keyword: minimal.)

This movie addresses some tough topics but I think all ages can see it. Any negative components can be portrayed as a PSA against drug use. And since this was based on the book by a real recovered homeless drug attic, it’s realistic! No crap about how everyone on the street is a saint who can’t afford to eat. And as someone who’s spent a good portion of his adult life on the streets, or in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, I can also vouch for its accuracy. Granted, it’s still a movie so they embellish and add some cheesy melodrama, but that’s to be expected. Without the snippets of soap opera dialogue and cat trainer action scenes, then this would be just some depressing indie flick. Instead, it allows for the whole family to enjoy it.

Anyways, back to the junkie stuff. A big theme of the film is something you hear in the 12 step programs quite a lot:”Selfishness, self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles.” Basically, pray for others and try to live for your loved ones first and foremost. And even though it’s counterintuitive, you will find that you get more than you could have ever dreamed of if you trust in a higher power and go down that path. Stop trying to do things your way, go one step at a time, and it’ll all work out. Lucky for you, though, you can appreciate that sentiment and life lesson through the eyes of a cat instead of having to hear a bunch of divorced middle-aged men chant their slogans at you. 😛

Speaking of which, a good portion of the film was spent switching the camera to show the point of view of the cat. Ironically, the use of a POV camera angle without a human voice over allowed for a heavier anthropomorphization and deeper connection between cat and audience. Just like real pets, nothing can compete with our own projected emotions/thoughts. Whenever the script calls for a voice actor, it’s a constant subconscious reminder that you’re watching trained animals chasing food while people in a studio talk. Not with this one, though. There’s quite the profound bromance between protagonists, and you can’t help but get caught up in it.

As for political elements, this was very apolitical. The love interest is a hippie vegan type and someone makes a brief joke at the expense of Rupert Murdoch. Completely innocent and ignorable, IMHO.

Watch this movie, and pay to do so!

Shameless plug: If you’re interested in proof that hobos spend their money on drugs, then watch my ghetto DIY documentary on YouTube. I went undercover with hidden camera spy glasses and lived on the streets/in the shelters and proved the point that this film does; the best way to help an addict is to give them a sense of purpose. Help with support in moderation, not money. Treat them as a human, not as a helpless baby. Try to balance out tough love with a helping hand.
