The Movie Thread

Does anyone else think Toy Story 4 is an SJW movie?

Yes. I wrote about it before in this thread. The film is a justification for the Sex in the City noeggs and no kids single female lifestyle. Bo Peep serves as a proxy for the modern day woman. At one point she literally says "Why would you tie yourself down to being a toy to some kid (being a mother to a kid) when there's so much beauty in the world to explore?" Disney/Pixar is one of the leading SJW propaganda machines existing today.
 
Rudy! The classic film about the true story an undersized underdog who dreams of playing football for Notre Dame! This flick is hugely motivating, and a great movie to see as a family. Many people would have just given up, but not Rudy! I look forward to seeing the new documentary about his life...

How many of you have seen Rudy? What did you think?

Try Atomic Blonde or Mad Max Fury Road for some awesome female led action.
No.

Female action is not only laughable, it violates natural law. As it is, too many women today actually believe that women are as physically capable today as men.

Charlize Theron (who is in both of those horrid films) is a great example of the failure of the West today. Born in South Africa, her family "opposed" apartheid but then were forced to flee once blacks got power, then grew into a stunning beauty, but instead of marrying and having children, became, in turns, a model and an actress, never marrying or bearing children. She concentrated on her career, had a string of romances that all ended in failure, and now as she has passed her prime is known as a rabid fan of The Bachelor, reportedly sleeping with several men who've appeared on the show----I guess even though she knows all about Hollywood trickery, she's still fooled by the glitz and glamour and trashiness.

She's become an outspoken feminist. And I'll bet she's killed a few children in her womb, and will admit it one day, and claim it was all worth it because she got an Oscar once for playing an ugly woman. She's adopted some non-white children and makes sure they're around for photo ops.

A miserable lonely fame-addicted, career-obsessed feminist woman who had to adopt children to have anyone around who wouldn't leave. Reminds me of the old crazy Joan Crawford, who pulled this routine more than 50 years ago (her adopted daughter wrote a tell-all book that exposed Mommy Dearest as an insane, violent, selfish, unloving woman totally centered on her self).

Theron is a great symbol of our society's failure.

Roman Holiday. An oldie but a goodie.

A beautifully shot (black and white) story of a chaste 48-hour romance between a real actual teenage princess (Audrey Hepburn) and the older American reporter (Gregory Peck) who at first sees her as a story to be exploited but falls for her as the two explore 1950s Rome, Italy as foreigner tourists out for fun.

Peck's slow walk away from Hepburn at the end---after they both silently admit their love for each other and yet also silently admit that they cannot be together---such a thing to behold. Talk about the poignant bittersweet, heartbreaking and yet proper.

And, of course, a young Audrey Hepburn is always something to watch---her gamine beauty could make a gay man straight.

Sean Astin is an underrated actor. He deserved a Best Supporting Oscar as Sam in Lord of the Rings, and Rudy is a great old-fashioned type movie.

One of my favorites is the noir genre is the Coen Bros BLOOD SIMPLE (1984)

p8584_v_v8_ae.jpg



Long before they were the mega directors this was their first film. The low-budget film set the standard for the wave of American indie films to come, and it established the Coens as two of the most important voices in cinema. It also launched the careers of Frances McDormand and cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld (who would later turn to directing himself).

One of their most underrated films IMO
The Coens are cagey guys in interviews, which makes me think that despite being (((special people))) they aren't left-wing (((special ))) people, and in fact might be pretty sympathetic to our side. A Serious Man was heavily critical of their own Jewish religion and Jewish community, while other movies such as O Brother Where Art Thou? was almost completely positive about white southern Christian music & culture of the 1930s (besides the obligatory Klan attack), and Hail, Casear! was positively joyous over old Hollywood and makes a conservative Catholic anti-communist the hero.
 
Fargo is a pretty good film, despite being made by outsiders in the Cohens.

It's probably the kindest portrayal of white America, in this case Minnesota whites, that a jewish director has made in decades.

The following series was not as good, it was weird and had all kinds of weird jewish and israeli easter eggs and season 2 was a full on feminist assault.

Speaking of the Coens...I thought Barton Fink was one of their best films. It paints a negative picture of Hollywood and the characters that inhabit the town. There's also a character in the film who's a Jewish studio head, but he's made out to be a money-loving blowhard that cares nothing about art.

If anything, they don't treat their own kind with kid gloves. And I have yet to see any homo or feminist agenda being pushed by them.

They've gotten away with remaining unwoke thanks to a combination of being Jewish, being top tier talent (greatest director-team of all time), and having their films be just weird enough and unoffensive enough to defy anyone trying to force the Narrative on them. I think they will be one of the last and least attacked.

I shudder in wondering, however, what will happen the woke mob comes for Scorcese and Tarantino. How many times in their movies did the word "nigger" get uttered unironically? It's gonna be lit.

Mission Impossible Rogue Nation - 8/10
Another solid action movie with some great 'missions' and a slightly interesting plot when you're not sure whose side people are on

Theron's father was a legit abusive arsehole, to the point Theron mother murdered her father in self defence with a handgun as he shot at them through their bedroom door with a shotgun.

Aside from her beauty, she does have this distant hardened other place look.
I actually have a good deal of pity for her.

All of this celebrity gossip and shit....bunch of fucking faggots we've got here.

Save for the first one-maybe, every single subsequent mission impossible film is utterly forgettable. . Not even worth a one time viewing with hokey dorky hammy humor, boring action set pieces, a paint by the brush formula. This franchise is made for retards, in the same veil as transformers. . Only one reason to get involved with this franchise and that is if you're Tom Cruise, having blast with the action sets and making millions in the process.

I miss Tom Cruise the actor.

He made so many great movies in the 80s when he just concentrated on his craft and choosing good projects to be a part of. Even his early work like All The Right Moves is more interesting than his cookie cutter action flicks he makes these days.

Are (live action) movies even being made right now? Are any being released, for that matter? I'd have to think that stuff made before Covid has all been released by now. What happens when they actually run out of stuff?

With CGI movies and video games, you can basically produce those indefinitely since you don't need people to show up on a set, but this would seem to be a massive problem for Hollywood. As someone who loathes the entertainment industry I wouldn't mind seeing it all collapse.

Guns Akimbo (2020), starring harry potter, is a worthy successor to CRANK. If you like that sort of madcap, excessive, ultraviolence set to a 1980's soundtrack then this one is worth a watch. Right now, its free to stream for Amazon Prime members.
