The whole thing sickened me. This was one long, dreary political statement with Col. KURTZ epitomizing evil white people. If I had know this was another social engineering tool I wouldn't have gone.
...that's what you got out of it?
You have some imagination.
Maybe has something to do with your biases?
What did you mean about "biases"? Is that another personal swipe?
Marty, Hwood has had an extremely strong social engineering agenda going for almost ten years. It has gotten to the point of being so blatantly obvious that I find it offensive. European and Asian films don't quite have the same drumbeat as ours which makes them preferable.
This "Apes" film had a near-zero entertainment factor and was overly long and tedious. I would like to think this is the last one if they pursue this kind of tedium.
...you mentioned politics, evil white people and social engineering - those sound like biases to me.
Other critics have made the Kurtz reference from Apocalypse.
Maybe I'm superficial but it was just another Planet of the Apes movie to me.
And the third, last and weakest of the trilogy IMO.
I reduxed 'When We Were Soldiers' the other night. I had not seen it since its first release in 2002. I realized this was not about the valor of VN and the first Air Cav battle but about bodies coming home from war. War was coming and Mel pitched in to warm us up to caskets and flags. In fact, the movie was rather shoddy as if thrown together in a hurry. These are the things film makers do to accommodate agendas.
The American film-goer has been pounded with all kinds of agenda messaging over the past decade that is beyond blatant. The most hapless victims of this process have been our youth. Our rudderless kids are being constantly blown off course and distracted with social agendas that encourage convoluted thinking and behavior. Part of this problem is the politicization of our major film industries with tax cuts and other incentives to push political agendas onto the public.
There is a time and place for propaganda but the relentless push for forced social change is not one of them and our film industries should not be leading the charge for whatever incentives they manage to get.
It's wishful thinking but maybe Doris Day and the Duke need to be resurrected to save Americans from unhealthy agendas.
Yeah, the Duke never had an agenda in any of his films. hahahahaha
I saw 'The Green Berets' while I was actually in VN. He was definitely America First.
Look up his Playboy interview. I was a big fan but he was a social neanderthal. He was a cinematic patriot who never served. A vocal anti-communist who testified before HUAC and held repugnant racial views. I liked his films but he was who he was and he always had an agenda.
I try to see film with the idea of separating the actor from his politics. Obviously, Hanoi Jane I had a real problem with but now I cannot overlook a drunken zealot like Affleck.
...a social neanderthal who never served - we have an entire administration filled with them.
...when you don't agree with the message.
You don't realize how much you and most of America are being used. Sad but true.
..aren't you the guy who follows the alt-right fake news?
Now you are getting personal. Grow up.
Do you count dinesh d'souza in that too? Because everything you decry is his stock in trade and I do NOT remember you saying jack about this when his last propaganda film came out. It's a street that goes both ways, no?
I supposed you will be lined up for Al Gore's latest propaganda. I guess,he's looking to establish another carbon exchange.
Ever watch one of his films? He is a great researcher.
