ok. today's hollywood is less about entertainent and more about moving the masses on social issues. the issue of the day is Obama is right and we need to support him. but how does hollywood help Obama and push his agenda. they play the race / underdog card of course. please peek out the very recent movies.

all with the basic theme of "feel guilty for what you have done to these people"; and the subliminal message of course...support the black president, you owe them that much don't you?

I see...so 7 out of 17,897 makes a consensus.

By your logic Hollywood wants the WH to get sacked by terrorists, mercenaries to get sent on suicide missions and middle aged rich people to move back to their childhood hometowns...

Not really. Consider medications as a metaphor, most have a relatively small percentage of the whole which is the active ingredient , while the rest is filler , sometimes intended to help it all go down easier (alcohol, sucrose, etc).

I haven't even heard of any of those besides that jango movie if that is the Quinton Tarantino abortion. If that is the case I don't think I will ever see it. I went to see pulp fiction I walked out of the theater after 45 minutes of that trash and with inglorious bastards. I assume mango it's the same firm of clap trap that is synonymous with Tarantino.

But I will not likely see any of those other movies as I have never heard of them. Best them at their own game, don't watch their garbage. When I was younger I was into old westerns. And horror. Now, pretty much the same. I did like cloud atlas.

How about Elysium ?

Anyone think it's not a pro-obamacare , pro-open border, pro socialism propaganda piece ?
If dystopian stories had never made it to the bi screen before, I might agree. But this has been a sub-genre for pretty much the entire history of cinema with sound.

this one is specific to healthcare. notably that the poor have substandard care and the rich have awesome healthcare.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN was a SNOOZE FEST.

I enjoyed Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter better. It was more realistic.
Not only boring but white washed. I woke up from my nap just as he (the WS that thought blacks to be the worst thing to happen to America and wanted them all deported to Africa) give a black Union solder the time of day after seeing him have to deal with racist white solders (who IRL Lincoln agreed with). He wasn't quite as genocidal as Jackson but the man was a ****ing asshole, that he is honored with Mt. Rushmore is a stain on American honor.

So...10 out of 50,000 Hollywood movies have a "Black" conceptual motif and thus it is progressive?

Don't watch the damn movies!

I have not seen a single one if them, do not want to, and probably never will.


Thing is...I can do so and so can everyone else.

I haven't seen them either. I have read the synopsis of each and the theme in general is "black man struggles against the white system and succeeds." these movies have all come out over the last 3 years or so during the term of a black president.

I don't think its a coincidence.

its about movement. moving masses to back a black president's agenda through guilt, regret, shame,...whatever works.

Of course it is not coincidence..freakin' Duh. Neither is BLM or the BS going on with the Oscars. Personally I do not care much about the "Black Mans Plight"...but this does not make me a racist. I also care very little about people who eat dogs in the Phillipines...But, I don't bitch about it or join PETA.

By beginning this thread you make it clear you have a problem with people being black. I have a problem with aspects of black culture as well...But,not enough to complain about freakin' movies.
