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.

Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting

Published

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

on

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
