I watch a lot of movies. Far more than the average person should. As a conservative this can be distressing though, because although I love movies many if not most of them sneak in some liberal subtext, social commentary, or jabs at conservatives. I'm going to list a few examples:
I Netflixed this movie this movie the other day thinking I was going to be watching a contemporary western/murder mystery, but what I got was a one sided analysis of boarder politics. Here is a review I submitted to Amazon. " I thought I was going to be watching a modern day western/who done it. Instead I received a dissertation on race relations at the boarder, and a story centered around an infallible protagonist. It reminds me a lot of "Higher Learning" in which all the progressive minded characters are empathetic sages of wisdom, and any conservative characters are one dimensional xenophobic bigots. So like another reviewer stated, it's basically a story that could've been told in 10 minutes inflated into an over two hour opus so that its writer/director can push a thinly veiled political agenda. In the end conservatives will enjoy this about as much as liberals love Red Dawn. Your enjoyment of this movie depends on your political affiliation and if you like being preached to."
This movie perpetuates the liberal fantasy that all conservatives are closet homosexuals. In fact the more anti-gay you are the higher the chance is that you're a homosexual.
Conservatives are evil and will destroy our own planet and the rest of the universe in the name of capitalism. That's the message of this movie in a nutshell. James Cameron has come out in support of eco-terrorism. That is interesting because his mansion has more than 6 times the square footage of my house, and he owns a fleet of vehicles. It's okay that he owns a Corvette and some firetrucks because he owns a Chevy Volt and a Tesla S Model to cancel them out. I love the liberal celebrity mantra of "Do as I say not as I do".
I've actually never seen this movie but the plot is priceless.
"Sixteen-year-old Tru has been raised in San Francisco by two lesbian mothers and two gay fathers. When one of her mothers gets a well-paid job in a multi-cultural but more conservative suburb in Southern California, Tru and her mothers relocate.
When Tru first starts at her new school, teachers welcome her but a group of male football jocks and their female friends bully her and say she looks like a "dyke." One of the footballers, Lodell, changes his mind about her and they start dating, but the relationship never becomes sexual. When they attend The Marvelous Wonderettes musical, Lodell flirts with a man. Tru's fathers suggest that Lodell is gay, and when Tru questions him he finally, reluctantly admits that he is a closeted homosexual. She tells him that she "doesn't want to be his Katie Holmes" but agrees to be his beard so he can continue to be accepted at school.
Tru begins to spend time with Lodell's best friend, fellow footballer Manuel, but when he bullies openly-gay classmate Walter, Tru defends Walter and they become friends. They try to establish a Gay Straight Alliance and although a conservative teacher and a closeted English teacher refuse to support the group, the school drama teacher agrees to be the faculty sponsor. The first meeting is successful, with several people attending a long discussion on same-sex marriage in California, but during football practice at the same time, the coach calls the players "ladies," rants that "kids can't even say prayers in class, but the fags...get their own club!" He then asks his team if they want to "put a little muscles into these plays or go meet [their] boyfriends at the Gay Scouts of America," to which they answer that they want to "play ball."
At the end of the Gay Straight Alliance meeting Tru meets a gay-rights supporter, hipster-geek senior Trevor. She initially thinks he's gay, but they quickly form an intimate relationship. Trevor, raised by his uncle, a gay fiction author, is open-minded about Tru's family arrangement. Later, Tru discovers that Lodell and Walter are sexually involved, and she ends her faux-relationship with Lodell. When Lodell and his teammates destroy a Gay Straight Alliance banner, Trevor sends out a mass coming out e-mail from Lodell's account. Tru is upset by this but eventually forgives him.
Tru's mothers have a small backyard commitment ceremony attended by teachers and other locals. Lodell arrives to announce that he has left another faux-relationship, and he has the opportunity to reconcile with Walter and meet David Kopay. Manuel arrives with his football coach and punches Lodell for not revealing his sexuality. He refuses to accept homosexuality, but promises to continue being a friend to Lodell. Lodell performs a self-penned song, the school principical dances with Trevor's uncle, and the closeted English teacher is advised by friend and fellow teacher Ms. Maple (Jane Lynch) to be open about his sexuality. In the short final scene, Lodell comes out to his mother and grandmother and introduces Walter as his boyfriend."
