Testing the Lone Ranger

OK, Cappy Cappites.

I got an idea.

I refused to see 42 because the trailers showed the standard oppressive white man proselyting BS that is always imbedded in hollywood movies today.  I didn't oppress Jackie Robinson, let alone any other black man and so I do take offense and umbrage to the insinuation that I am somehow responsible for actions of people who fall under the category of "not me."

So since Tonto is an Indian (played by a white guy, nice going politically correct, liberal hollywood), I fear that "The Lone Ranger" is going to have some token, politically correct lecture about racism and Indians and evil white people.

I WANT to see the movie but REFUSE to until I know for a fact there ain't no condescending lecture.

So how do we resolve this quandry?

Simple. 

Let's make a little pact.

Whoever sees it first reports back immediately if there's any hint or tone of some kind of leftist "evil white man come and take buffalo away" guilt tripping.  And if there is, I simply announce it here on my blog and nobody goes sees it.  That way only one ticket is bought, saving 10,000 people the hassle and humility of spending their own money to get lectured by the left, and roughly, $100,000 in profit for the left.

Any volunteers to go see the movie?

This is a great idea.

For sure someone else spoke about it in the manosphere, I remember that, but given the low traffic of such sites or forums it never stabilized.

Main point is: that should be done for every movie and every book and every music lyric of today, possibly in a searchable web site. What we have today is some negative reviews when movies carry a clear anti male or anti whte message, like Machete, Django and that movie that stated it was the black pilots who won the last war.

We perfectly know this exposes the owners to feminists and corporate legal retaliation.

Let's see how this goes.

It's a Disney produced film, so it's guaranteed to have some sappy, subliminal message hidden somewhere. People are even thinking that "Monsters University" had some political message behind it. I'll try to see it and hopefully have "This Is The End" watched before "The Lone Ranger" comes out as well.

'I WANT to see the movie but REFUSE to until I know for a fact there ain't no condescending lecture."

In that case forget it. There is nothing , and I do mean nothing, that does not have at least some PC garbage buried somewhere. In some movies it may be less obvious but it ia ALWAYS there. Might be in the form of a strong, independent woman as the hero, maybe a gay-ish doctor saving many lives, black boss in charge of group of mostly white males, brief reference to global warming, group of ethically diverse children playing happily etc... Hollywood will tone it down at times but it has been many years since I have seen a major movie that does not have their agenda in there somewhere. (Passion of Christ was probably the last one) Which is one of the reasons I always wait until I can check out the movie for free at the library. Hollywood liberals have gotten the last penny they will ever get from me (directly anyway) many years ago.

Elysium with Matt Damon promises to have the 1 Percenter vs Wall Street Occutard theme too.

The problem I have with a very, very few of these movies - is that they make a good story in spite of the agenda they are pushing.

What we need is to actively pirate these movies and share them so that we can enjoy them AND screw the swine that produced them out of their share of the eeeeeeeeevil capitalist profit. We can make sure the Pore & Starvin' get to watch them for free too...that would be fine social justice, dontchya think?

Seems like this has become a disease. Michael Connelly, outstanding author of many excellent books, manages to insert at least one disguised attack against gun owners into every book he writes.

Craig Johnson (Longmire) managed to get through several books without any overt political attacks but in his last had to have a character make a comment that someone was watching too much Fox News when they expressed a fear of the federal government.

Rarely if ever do you see anyone insert a snide comment about leftist policies or organizations.

Oh, Elysium is a no brainer. Lefty theme, Matt Damon as the hero. Forget it. I don't even care to see it.

THats because Book publishers are lefy organizations with rabid leftist policies. They wont print it if it does not comply.

If it ain't Clayton Moore it ain't The Lone Ranger.

Just saw World War Z. Other than an extremely vague and inconsistent mildly pro-UN subtext, it was good. It mostly failed as a comparison to the novel, but it wasn't terrible.

Reluctant Paladin said...

Whats the matter with Elysium Cap? You don't care to go over the economics of why everyone on the planet shouldn't have access to super machines that cure all known diseases?

Mr. Capitalism,

this could be very confusing...

Take the case of Sin City...

If I am an anti-feminist traditionalist, the strict gender roles are appealing...

If I am an MRA the male disposability is appalling...

If I am an equalist the white knight porno fantasy is disgusting, but would give me a raging boner if I were a male feminist...

now when I saw Django Unchained, the mention of phrenology reminded me of the "alter-right's" fascination with HBD...

Is it okay to watch The Devil In Miss Jones or am I betraying MGTOW's everywhere???

OregonGuy said...

See?

heresolong saves me. I've been tempted to start the Longmire series, but with one episode--the disclosure above--there's no way.

Classic Cloward-Piven. Attack the individual, not the idea. "Ha-ha, Fox News. See? Unbalanced. Ha-ha."

Now, a reference to Keith Olberman?

Priceless.

Anon About Sin City,

If you look hard enough you can find "anything" that isn't there. Sin City didn't have one ounce of genuine PC, political agenda except to prove once again Bruce Willis kicks ass and a town full of chicks in fishnets is awesome.

I haven't seen any protests from Native Americans I advance of the move. This is curious, because theirs always at least some college kid who majored in grievance studies who wants to get noticed.

My guess is Tonto isn't even an Indian, he's a crazy white guy fraud.

Elysium With Matt Damon is about poor immigrants trying to illegally enter a rich country and thn destroying the rich country when they get there. I have high hopes for that one in a subversive way.

BigFire said...

Technically Johnny Depp is part American Indian, so him playing Tonto isn't at much of a big deal as many make it out to be.

Here you go Cap, courtesy of the Atlantic Wire of all things:

"In one of the busier scenes in Gore Verbinski's very busy The Lone Ranger, dozens if not hundreds of Comanche tribesmen are brutally gunned down by a machine-gun-armed U.S. Cavalry. This sad and ugly violence — employed to represent the larger cultural annihilation being waged throughout the American West in the bloody era of Manifest Destiny — is intercut with shots of Johnny Depp, at the moment dressed up like a Chinese rail worker but face still covered in warpaint, furiously pumping a railway handcar with a blindfolded Armie Hammer as his passenger. Tonto and the Lone Ranger's wacky, madcap getaway complete, we are then allowed a somber moment to pause and reflect on the terrible bloodshed to which we were just subjected."

I think that tells you everything you need to know.
