The feminists seem to think that if they can just call enough Americans “misogynists” and “sexists,” their all-female Ghostbusters reboot will be successful. Since that hasn’t worked yet, Washington Post columnist Kristen Page-Kirby has a new insult to try out. In her review of the film, she wrote that “’Ghostbusters’ is pretty funny and anyone who says otherwise is a virgin loser who lives in his mom’s basement.”
Hollywood’s agenda-pushing is no secret. In fact, producers and actors don’t even attempt to deny it. In interviews conducted by Ben Shapiro, executive producer Leonard Goldberg stated that Hollywood liberalism is “100 percent dominant, and anyone who denies it is kidding, or not telling the truth.” Even if everyone denied it, you’d only have to watch a handful of movies to catch the ideological drift. So here’s the handful that MRC Culture recommends – or, doesn’t – a list of some of the worst offenders. It was hard to choose, and we know there are many more liberal films out there, so take a look and leave a comment with movies your top picks.
In the upcoming movie, Imperium, Daniel Radcliffe plays an FBI agent infiltrating a neo-Nazi sect. That should be a movie everyone can get on board with: the freedom-loving American versus the oppressive Nazis. Think again.
The new movie Me Before You looks to be an inspirational love story. A lower-class woman in England is hired to take care of a young man who recently became a quadroplegic after being hit by a car. He inspires her to live a fuller life; she inspires him to find the joys he can still realize from his wheelchair.
That’s the commercial, but that’s not the actual plot. Spoiler alert: this isn’t a love story, it’s a story of a man’s self-love leading to assisted suicide.
Those poor, naive folks who have been expecting a mea culpa from Katie Couric for the deceptive insertion into her Under the Gun documentary of a long silence following a question directed at Virginia gun-rights supporters will be disappointed at what has transpired since the controversy arose.
As of Thursday afternoon, no one was genuinely apologizing for anything. Stephanie Soechtig, the film’s producer, employed a tired "I apologize if anyone was offended, but I didn't mean any harm" excuse — garbage which the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, as Tim Graham at NewsBusters noted, should cause anyone using it to lose "their standing as professionals." For her part, Couric issued a statement saying “I support Stephanie’s statement and am very proud of the film.” Early Thursday evening, however, Couric appeared to move into damage-control mode, but in a way that should forever earn her the nickname "Katie Coward."
To mark the 10th anniversary of the release of the film documentary An Inconvenient Truth, May 24, 2016, Participant Media introduced a celebratory campaign with the social media hashtag #AIT10, and the slogan “Share your truth.” It also made free digital copies of the film available for 24 hours through a number of digital retailers, including Amazon, Itunes, and Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand.
During a fawning interview with former Vice President Al Gore aired on Monday’s NBC Today, correspondent Anne Thompson teed up the global warming activist to bash Republicans: “Do you see a Trump presidency undoing all the progress that the U.S. has made in the last ten years in the fight against climate change?” Thompson fretted: “This is a man who’s called climate change a ‘hoax’ and other words that we cannot use on network TV....So where's the hope?"
Left-wing bias; it’s not just for the news pages. The New York Times Weekend Arts roundup demonstrates how it saturates the paper, even -- perhaps especially -- in the paper’s Manhattan-centric cultural coverage, with rants about racist voter suppression in 2016 and how high-end art buyers "control the inequitable economy in America today."
During an interview with the stars of the Hollywood’s latest anti-capitalist screed, Money Monster, on Friday’s NBC Today, correspondent Keir Simmons summed up the plot of the film: “In the movie, [George] Clooney is forced to wear an explosive vest by British rising star Jack O'Connell. Who lost his dead mother's money on stocks.” Simmons noted: “This guy is a terrorist, who you end up feeling sympathy for.”
Someone really should come up with a typesetter’s font for when our liberal betters to use when forced to write about things they disdain. We could call it “Helvetica Sneer,” and it would save busy cosmopolitan authors a lot of time and trouble.
According to GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), Disney has a big fat “F” for LGBT representation in their movies – meaning, there haven’t been any gay characters in children’s movies in 2015. However, since Disney announced there will be a Frozen 2 in the works for 2018, a few frustrated Frozen lesbian fans are trying to use the movie to feature an alternative romance for Queen Elsa, a gay character – or in this case – a different kind of “queen.”
When a movie includes a song about how "love is an open door," the LGBT lobbyists will start writing, as USA Today reported. Alexis Isabel, a 17 year old “Feminist Culture” founder, the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend went viral last weekend, which made Isabel write a post for MTV as to why she started the movement.
Movie night! Tickets for the family to see grown men flying around in spandex: $50. Popcorn and soda: $20. Watching a movie GLAAD says doesn’t include enough gays: Priceless.
Gays and Lesbians Allied Against Defamation is the media speech police for all things LGBT (etc.). When GLAAD isn’t giving awards to CNN hosts, it’s counting how many gay characters appear in TV and movies, and demanding they be out of all proportion to the actual numbers of LGBT folks living in cities not named West Hollywood.
