Last week, the Academy Awards show was broadcast on television. Like most sensible people, I did not watch it. Neither have I watched any of the movies which might or might not have been nominated.
Why would I?
To me, “woke” Hollywood is nothing but a herpes sore on the lip of culture: an infectious disease worse than the China Virus that makes everything ugly and sordid.
The fake elitists that claim to represent the collective tastes of movie goers are a blight on true art. Seeing this pestiferous, narcissistic swarm of depraved wretches congratulate themselves on their efforts to bring down civilization fills me with revulsion.
Once upon a time, Hollywood had something useful to offer the world: entertainment, hope, joy, even inspiration. In the early days, when morally ambiguous characters were first depicted, there was an opportunity for viewers to discuss, analyze and assess choices being made on screen while still respecting the possibility of a virtuous outcome. No more. Today’s propaganda masters are unambiguously vile – they beat the viewer over the head with noxious, Leftist ideology. Rather than actual virtue, woke Hollywood offers only virtue signaling. And, true to the Globalist, Luciferian agenda that drives the narrative, anyone who dares to disagree with the inverted truth offered by the fake elite is branded a racist, fascist, and even a domestic terrorist.
What seems like a very long time ago, mostly liberal but humanity loving Old Hollywood produced “classic” movies by people like Charles Chaplin, John Ford, Cecil B. De Mille, David O. Selznick, Frank Capra, Robert Sturges, David Lean, Mel Brooks and many others. These movies were, generally, original, thought provoking, inspirational, and, above all, entertaining. Today’s original movies are depressing, hateful, boring, agenda-driven depictions of the false narrative that humanity is wretched and beyond redemption. No one will sit through these mediocrities other than film students and virtue signaling elitists. That they are given awards is a clear indication of the depravity, not of humanity in general, but of the woke establishment. They will never be classics. They are only of value to the denizens of the dark, soulless echo chamber of a debauched, Leftist dystopia in which the creators of civilization and culture are seen as tyrannical monsters, while Moloch worshipping deviants bent on looting and burning down creation are hailed as true heroes.
Perhaps worse than the propaganda riddled prize winners – because they are actually SEEN by the public – are the money-making, block busters that pass, today, for entertainment. These are typically sequels to previous “hits,” often based on comic books, as well as prequels, reboots, remakes, re-imaginings, re-visionings, director’s cuts, extended versions, alternate endings and maliciously perverted adaptations of old TV shows and old movies. What unifies these offerings is a passive-aggressive stance towards civilization, culture and actual art and a contempt for anyone that would take these movies seriously.
