You May Be Surprised By What Some Liberal Critics Are Saying About Michael Moore’s New Anti-Trump Movie

Published

on

You would think that, in 2018, the fastest way to a movie critic’s heart would be to spend 90 minutes complaining about and ruthlessly slamming Trump.

Michael Moore has learned that, for many critics, this was entirely true with his new film, “Fahrenheit 11/9”.

But they weren’t all thrilled.

While the film, Moore’s second on Trump (and no, Trump hasn’t even been in office two years yet, so just think about how much of Moore’s head he occupies), received an 85% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, there was a stunning 18% that found it to be “rotten.”

And it wasn’t all from conservatives.

A handful of left-leaning critics seem to have had one collective response: “Yawn.”

That’s right!

Apparently, while liberals have no hesitation at bashing Trump day in and day out, when it’s coming from Michael Moore, was it so much to expect a little originality?

The Daily Wire captures a few of the underwhelmed reviews:

David Sims, The Atlantic

“A disjointed, occasionally powerful, often grating grab bag of recent political events, a mess that’s forgivable only because it does reflect the messy state of the world.”

“Moore’s disdain for President Trump is mostly contained to lazy shots about his (undeniably creepy) affection for his daughter Ivanka; he’s perhaps assuming that his audience will not need much convincing on Trump’s leadership deficiencies.”

Jake Cole, Slant Magazine

“Fahrenheit 11/9 represents a sincerely bold attempt to capture the overwhelming civic decay that led to our current political crisis, but Michel Moore’s circus-showman duplicity is as crass and abhorrently self-promoting as that of Donald Trump.”

Rafer Guzman, Newsday

“A short review of Moore’s film could consist of three words: We knew that. … If Moore really wanted to explain how Trump became president, he might have spent some screen time talking with Trump supporters. Instead, ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ just feels like comfort food for the Resistance.”

Mark Feeney, Boston Globe

“By the end of ‘Fahrenheit’ Moore is in rant mode. ‘The America I want to save is the America we never had’ (huh?) and ‘We have to get rid of the whole rotten system that gave us Donald Trump.’ That basically means any part of the Democratic Party to the right of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whom we briefly glimpse in a news clip.

“The movie’s a dynamic mess, and the dynamism makes the messiness feel that much messier.”

Stephen Dalton, Times

“Fahrenheit 11/9 is funny and mischievous in parts, but too little of it feels fresh or shocking.”

Yikes!

Maybe it’s time for Moore to find a new powerhouse.

STRANGER THAN FICTION: ‘Law and Order’ Mashes Ilhan Omar into Covington Catholic Scandal

This is lazy writing at its very finest.

Published

virtue signaling

Day in and day out, writers in Hollywood work to create arcing storylines and thoughtful dialogue that we may hear passively while we’re cooking dinner. All of the work that goes into weekly television occurs ad nauseam, no matter the reality of the those producing it.  The show must go on, essentially, and there are times in which writers get a little bit lazy. Some of television’s most profound pieces of real estate fall victim to such concerns week after week, and these lazy and uninspired bits often conflate themselves into a loss of viewership.  It is this concern that has Law and Order:  SVU staff worried this week. NBC crime procedural Law & Order: Special Victims Unit featured a “ripped from the headlines” theme in its latest episode, which smeared the Covington Catholic kids by pitting them against an Ilhan Omar-styled character who is portrayed as a hero. The plot centered on a poor, put-upon Islamic city politician being confronted by a red ballcap-wearing crowd of young men who scream at her and taunt her. But the episode also throws in a big dollop of male oppression and lesbianism for good measure, Newsbusters reported. The Law & Order: SVU  episode entitled, “Assumptions,” opens with a pair of teenaged boys running away from a vandalized mosque in which we soon see that Muslim Councilwoman Nahla Nasar (Nazneen Contractor) has been raped. The story, which is an amalgam of two real life American situations, was undoubtedly meant to invoke the emotions of the politically-savvy US populace in order to sell commercials on NBC. This monetization of the American outrage machine is something worth monitoring, especially as we slip closer and closer to the possibility of a constitutional crisis…at least according to the liberal left.

Infotainment Personality from NBC Mocked After Likening Climate Change To…

Here is yet another example of the mainstream media turning to sideshow tactics to keep advertisers happy, while scaring the daylights out of the rest of us.

NBC

The American people seem to forget a very salient point regarding the mainstream media, seemingly on a daily basis: It’s all for show. The entirety of the television “news” industry is dependent upon selling commercial advertising space in between salacious segments of shouting, and it shows.  The competition is stiff on cable, too, creating an opportunity for networks to desperately grasp at niche demographics with their coverage. And while it certainly is entertaining, it doesn’t equate to too much else, especially in this digital world where the facts are easily attainable. This reality may be most prevalent in issues that are heavily divided down party lines and, therefore, tend to create the most drama…something that advertisers love. It’s the chasing of this revenue that has led on NBC infotainment personality to take his climate change rhetoric out of this world. An NBC News reporter raised eyebrows and prompted pushback from an MSNBC host after suggesting that climate change is like an alien invasion that is visible to everyone. The reporter, Jacob Ward, made the odd comparison following the release of the United Nations climate change report that claims a number of “transformative changes” will be needed to save nature and humanity from climate change and other threats. What exactly did he say? “Yeah, you know, it really is devastating, Stephanie. I mean, this is how dark the times are in the view of researchers… people are sort of getting ready for the horrors that this report is talking about. So it is dark times, I gotta say,” he told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle during a Monday show. Ruhle then lamented that “there’s not even a consensus around climate change,” prompting Ward to make the comparison. “I know, I know. I mean, that’s the thing, right? You look at it and you think…
