I honestly didn’t have a dog in Sunday night’s fight for best picture or the Academy Awards in general. Hollywood pretty much ignored the film I believed deserved the award recognition which was Leave No Trace. Despite it being amazing, there was no progressive angle to the film and that is the only thing the Hollywood cared about…progressive politics.
The R-rating is seen as an attempt to hurt the film’s viability with its family-friendly distributor Pure Flix, a Christian production studio. An R-rating stipulates that theater owners not allow anyone under 17, unless they’re accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If there is one genre that always gets the toughest treatment in Hollywood, it is faith-based films and here we have one that flew so far under the radar, it’s a bit of a miracle that it got a wide release. If you want to understand the kind of opposition that films which promote Christianity deals with from the media, look no further The Wrap’s review which criticizes this film on the basis that the writer can’t stand…well, on-screen Christians.
Don Lemon thinks you are a complete idiot…because that is the only way you can possibly believe the story he is trying to sell you. Last night on CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon stated that “actor Jussie Smollett’s story doesn’t add up and many people of color and gay people, had questions about this from the very beginning”
It’s a shame that in 2019, we are still having to deal with the blatant sexism from internet trolls of a toxic fanbase but here we are. The latest Ghostbusters film is officially in the works as Jason Reitman is at the helm for what is officially being called Ghostbusters 3, however there are quite a few man-babies out there that can’t handle the fact that Ghostbusters isn’t being catered to them anymore and instead will be marketed to a more ‘inclusive’ audience.
There is no way to sugarcoat this, if you believed that Jussie’s story was true, you are either a liar or a sucker. You are either a complete dope who will believe anything the media tells you because you have convinced yourself that the media is on your side and it’s their job to ‘tell the truth’ or you knew this story was a pile of crap from the jump but you decided to gaslight it anyway because you (like Jussie) saw it as an opportunity to project your hate for Trump supporters through this story and give yourself a false sense of validation.
I’m sure the media won’t be happy that someone cut their agenda from the movie as seen with similar reactions to the film’s retouched promos or the De-Feminized edit of Star Wars: The Last Jedi but one thing is sure, fans have something to root for…until they realize Disney has nothing to with this trailer.
