  • Sex in the City High School
    Ed Driscoll Ace uses the new movie Bad Teacher, starring an increasingly shopworn-looking Cameron Diaz in an otherwise throwaway raunchy Hollywood comedy, as the launch pad for an interesting discussion of modern Hollywood semiotics, and film critics on both sides of the aisle:There's an idea out there -- some conservatives have this too, and are scorned for it, but liberals secretly harbor this idea and aren't even honest about stating it forthrightly -- that the point of all art is elevation, and any art which is non-elevating (or outright degrading) is ipso facto bad art.I don't buy into the leftist nonsense that takes this rule and simply reverses it into its dumb kneejerk contrarian form -- that good art always must be degrading or subversive of ideals usually considered elevating.It's more, ahem, nuanced than that. Bad behavior can be interesting, certainly; it's fairly easy to make bad behavior interesting, as the headlines of any tabloid demonstrate.But it's often a more difficult artistic trick to make good behavior interesting, and artists should challenge themselves to do so.But getting back to the actual point -- are liberal film critics going to insist that every major female role must be a paragon of empowered and enlightened feminism? How the critics snicker when the leads in Atlas Shrugged seem too good to be true; but offer them up the opposite sort of character -- as anti-feminist a heroine as you can imagine -- and they howl how they despise her.Is there no room whatsoever for a "minority" character (and feminists consider women to be minorities) who fails to be a role model for others?It's interesting that when the shoe is on the other foot, liberal critics -- who will happily, eagerly mock conservatives for the belief that all art should be didactic -- covertly insist on a purely didactic message about their cherished shibboleths.This is dumb. The villain -- or in comedy, the rogue, the villain-as-comedic-antihero -- is often the best role in any movie (or any play, or any book), and dunderheaded liberals are basically insisting that such terrific roles may only be played by white men.I think I can speak for all white male actors on this point: Thank you! Thank you for insisting we get the best roles in your misguided effort to insure that "minority" actors (including women) only play the Best Friend, the Romantic Object, or the Magic Negro!Thank you for accusing any film with a black villain of being racist! We sure don't want actors like Yaphet Kotto and Geoffrey Holder making a big impression in a film! We don't want black actors to have their careers launched!If you define "feminist" not as feminists typically define it, but rather as "increasing the liberty of women to do things they were previously precluded from by either operation of law or social stigma," then this film is, believe it or not, "feminist" for letting a girl be Bad.Read the whole thing -- from Ace's description, seeing the movie afterward is very much optional.Related: Kyle Smith on what sounds like a similar archetypal character being concurrently played by Jennifer Aniston: "Non-Controversy Over the Other F Word." class="pages"> https://pjmedia.com/eddriscoll/2011/7/9/sex-in-the-city-high-school/ ]]>

  • Movies: Democrats Prefer Criminals, Don't Mind Paying Too Much If It Helps Their Self-Esteem
    (”Bad Teacher” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    PJ Media Interesting piece in the Hollywood Reporter on how Republicans and Democrats approach Hollywood entertainment differently. Republicans are more likely to avoid movies with outspokenly political stars, but Democrats dig crime sprees. And if it makes them feel better about themselves, they're perfectly happy paying more to see the same movie everyone else sees. Both of those points of view carry over into politics -- think "Free Mumia" and Democrats views on taxation and the effectiveness of government programs.Democrats are bigger moviegoers This is likely fueled by Hollywood's reputation -- among both parties -- for churning out movies that promote liberalism (Avatarwas named by the most moviegoers as having a liberal agenda). During the past six months, Democrats have seen on average 5.7 movies in a theater, while Republicans have seen fewer than four.Republicans are more likely to wait for home video Democrats are likelier to see movies on opening weekend, while GOP members prefer waiting it out. Republicans assume their values will be assaulted onscreen -- so why pay the big bucks? -- while Democrats embrace pop culture more and want to be "in the know," says Penn.Republicans prefer family films; Democrats like edge From hundreds of Oscar winners and classics, Republicans were far more likely to name as favorites The Sound of Music and It's a Wonderful Life; Democrats favored Bonnie and Clyde and The Silence of the Lambs. Among recent films, Republicans were likelier to choose Soul Surfer and Secretariat. Democrats? The Social Network, Bad Teacher and Easy A.Bad Teacher? The trailer was barely watchable...Republicans tsk-tsk sex, violence and cursing While majorities of both parties think movies contain too much of all those, the numbers are greater for Republicans. A majority of Democrats think Hollywood films are generally inspiring and morally uplifting; a majority of Republicans don't.Democrats think America is portrayed well While 62 percent of Dems say Hollywood shows America in a positive light, only 39 percent of Republicans concur. And 44 percent of Republicans think Hollywood portrays the U.S. military negatively, but only 21 percent of Democrats agree. "Typically, when you see a movie, it will reflect a Democrat's values," says Penn. "Republicans aren't getting the films they want."Not everything about movies is partisan Dems and Republicans say comedy is their favorite genre, popcorn is their favorite theater snack, Forrest Gump is their preferred blockbuster and Indiana Jones is their favorite action hero.At least we can all agree on Indiana Jones. But "morally uplifting." I can think of many two-word phrases to describe today's entertainment, but that's not one of them. class="pages"> https://pjmedia.com/blog/movies-democrats-prefer-criminals-dont-mind-paying-too-much-if-it-helps-their-self-esteem/ ]]>

  • Why Left-Wing Artists Should Not All Be Put to Death
    (”Bad Teacher” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Klavan On The Culture "I often think it's comical – Fal, lal, la!How Nature always does contrive – Fal, lal, la!That every boy and every galThat’s born into the world aliveIs either a little LiberalOr else a little Conservative!Fal, lal, la!"This wonderful lyric from Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta Iolanthe is quoted in Steven Pinker's fascinating book The Blank Slate. It illustrates the Harvard psychologist's argument that there may be a genetic predisposition toward one political leaning or the other. Pinker writes:The Right-Left axis aligns an astonishing collection of beliefs that at first glance seem to have nothing in common... Why on earth should people's beliefs about sex predict their beliefs about the size of the military? What does religion have to do with taxes? Whence the linkage between strict construction of the Constitution and disdain for shocking art?Pinker believes the answer may lie as much in a person's nature as his nurture.Both the Gilbert and Sullivan lines and Pinker's book came back to me last week as I read this article in the movie trade paper The Hollywood Reporter about a poll they sponsored on the movie-going habits of Republicans and Democrats. The poll confirmed what many of us believe: Republicans go to the movies less, in part because they feel their values will be assaulted on-screen... which, of course, they will be. class="pages"> https://pjmedia.com/andrewklavan/2011/10/10/why-left-wing-artists-should-not-all-be-put-to-death/ previous Page 1 of 2 next   ]]>

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
