Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo
I know, I know. You just can't believe it, right. Oh, and they're talking about -- get this -- movies. Talking about movies on Twitter? It's a day of Firsts for the cucks. So, they're shrieking that conservatives are stupid for daring to imagine that a Hollywood movie about Deplorables might actually depict Deplorables in a bad light.
Can you imagine Those Stupid, Stupid Inbred Conservatives suspecting that liberal Hollywood elites might have it in Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo them? Yes, Twitter geniuses, you are right that it's absurd for conservatives to be skeptical of Hollywood or think they'd make a movie attacking them.
Where would these idiots get the idea that Hollywood would make a movie attacking them and their values? They would never do that! I'll quote the stupid cucks below. She Caught The Train - UB40 - Labour Of Love tweet from these people is either 1, We're Better!
That's why they go hysterical over every Trump tweet -- everything with them is about salving their wounded ego. Every morning is a new chance on twitter to seize on the SJW narrative of the day and shriek in triumph, "See?
Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo you see! We're not the dumb ones, we're the smart ones! YOU'RE the dumb ones! This is literally every fucking morning. Every morning. Every day. Every hour of every day. This isn't even subtext.
This is text. Now, what these geniuses are claiming, I'll put in posts Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo. If you've seen my comments the last few days, I myself have told people that the sense I got from the trailer was that it was a Most Dangerous Game variation, and that the quarry in a Most Dangerous Game variation is the hero, not Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo hunter.
The hunter is the villain. So I think, Τώρα Το Βράδυ - Βράδυ - Άγγελος Ψαρράς* - Καμπίσια & Ρουμελιώτικα, the "deplorables" -- or at least one likable deplorable -- is the hero. Or becomes the hero. But that doesn't mean "The Deplorables" are the good guys. Not at all. There's a difference between being half -smart, like these fucking idiots are, and all-the-way smart, as we are.
See, I understand screenplay tropes and structure beyond El árbol Que Tú Olvidaste - Atahualpa Yupanqui - 1962-1965 crude "Who are the bad guys and who is the good guy? I've also seen a very similar movieso I know this micro-genre. And I'm afraid that I know too much to be as confident and crude in my pronouncements as these dolts and imbeciles who have mistaken themselves, as mediocre intellects often do, for being clever.
I don't know which way this movie is going to propagandize, if at all. There is actually some chance it has a "right-wing valence," because it's a horror movie, and horror movies are all about just turning a buck and admirably unconcerned with respectability. So that's But it's nothing to be so cocksure about. I'll elaborate below. That post isn't objectionable -- Markey is right, as far as it goes.
It's basically an NRA recruitment video. In the Snyder cut they repeal nafta. I wrote about it last night. Why does the right lose the culture war? Probably a right-wing "valence," you say, Movie Critic? Let's take a look at that claim. Okay, so this Twitter Brain Trust, these experts in screenplays and dramas, have figured out that on their crudest level, movies are about conflict, and this conflict usually opposes people you're supposed to sympathize with the "good guys" and people you're not intended to sympathize with the "bad guys".
Bravo, fellas. You nailed that one. First of all, in any group of characters -- the quarry group, here -- the screenwriter will have to, get this, differentiate them from their fellows.
Hey Cucks -- get this, the group of Deplorables can't all be an undifferentiated mob of Virtuous People. Even if you were writing pure Red State propagaganda, you wouldn't make them all the same. In this sort of movie, which is hot-button political provocation and social critique, you'd do is make some of them politically and morally bad and some of them politically and morally goodor at least good-ish, and redeemable.
So the point is: The fact that the main heroine will almost certainly be a "Good Guy" is hardly a guarantee that the rest of the Deplorables will be Good Guys.
The rest of the Deplorables might very well be depicted as the racist, uneducated, irredeemable hillbilly bigots taht conservatives fear this movie will depict them as. Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demoif I had to guess, this movie will follow the standard ingredient list for the Deplorables, and you'll have one Hero, one or two sympathetic but non-heroic characters, one more sympathetic character who exists entirely to be killed and thus provoke our outrage, and the others will range from morally neutral to despicable.
Because this is also a horror movie. Well, there are two reasons people watch horror movies: To experience the tension and fear while hoping that the likable character does not get murdered, and to experience the sneaky, mean joy of seeing characters they don't like murdered in gruesome fashion.
So yeah: In horror movies, you have the Whores who must die Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo the Virgin who must or may live.
You have a hero, a couple of innocent yet ineffectual people who you just also want to die because they're not proactive or effectuala very sympathetic person to get killed and make the audience hate the villain, and Deserving Victims, so that the Valse Triste - Volkmann*, Rimsky-Korsakov*, Sibelius* ; The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Frederick St can say "Ooooh!
Now, granted, the "Deplorable" heroine will be virtuous. But she might be virtuous because she is not conservative nor deplorable, just poor and maybe manipulated by toxic racist propaganda. Meanwhile, the Deserving Victims might be -- will be, I'd wager -- portrayed as the racist, homophobic hicks that the "Stupid Conservatives" are expecting.
And another point. Is this necessary? Well, many trash movies dispose of this, but movies that hit hot-button topics like this will usually insert that sort of thing into their garbage exploitation movie to make it seem more thoughtful and less exploitation-y. So, what evolution will the main character undergo? What realization will she have? How will she end the movie as a changed person? Thousand Year Frog / The Living Stump* / David Payne / Fossils - Revolt In 2010, if she just survives this trauma, she'll be emotionally scarred; but that's Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo the sort of character-arc change we mean.
Could it be that, while she's overall a likable character, we find out later that she has in fact suspected, say, Hispanics of crimes they were not guilty of? Supported deporting them? Took out her own anger at the world at a scapegoat group? And could she experience a moment of redemption near the end of the movie?
Say, when she's fleeing the hunters -- receiving aid from a family of Hispanic Immigrants who have gained the skills of evading implacable and evil pursuers due to their own perilous situation? In short: Will Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo anti-immigrant Deplorables realize that their being hunted by elitist thrill-killers is very much like immigrants being hunted by ICE? Anyone want to bet against me on that? I'm Morning In Marcuria - Simon Poole - Dreamfall Chapters - Original Soundtrack (File, Album) sure of that, but So my point is: Yes, Geniuses, you've correctly deduced that the Quarry in a Most Dangerous Game movie is the hero, and the predator the villain.
Check the trailer out to get a sense of it. It's pretty good. Great cast. It features this killer pop song prominently. The plot is that a group of very liberal, very elitist graduate students encounter a racist, sexist hillbilly deplorable and accidentally murder him in self defense. If that sounds confused -- well, it's ambiguous if they had to kill him or just wanted to.
After that, they decide to start inviting "guests" to dinner -- conservatives -- and quiz them about their beliefs. If the "guests" admit that their views are horrible and join the liberal cause, they will be permitted to live.
Otherwise, they will be secretly poisoned, murdered, and buried out in the tomato garden. They murder Bill Paxton, a racist, southern-coded truckdriver. Though they didn't plan this murder, they're happy to have done it, and prononce that they have done a good thing by giving him justice. They murder Jason Alexander, a smug feminist-criticizing fat guy who denies that women are equal to men.
Cliched And Battered - 142 - Demo smugly smile as he drinks their poison. Again, they take pleasure in the murder, and call themselves good people for doing so. Now, at about the halfway point, the group begins Vater Unser - Various - The World Of Russische Folklore bicker about whether they're going too far.
Whether they're being properly selective about who to murder. Whether they're giving their "guests" enough of a chance to repent before passing silent judgment with the poison-laced wine.
One of their members goes way too far and nominates a 14 year old girl, shy and stuttering, for the Last Supper. Her only crime is that she believes that sex should wait until marriage, and she is part of a group that encourages chastity vows. At this point, the main character Cameron Diaz intervenes and rushes the girl out of the death house before her more murderous friend can poison her.
