Why are movies so shit nowadays?


Recommended Posts

Was thinking the exact same thing today, although I'd extend 'nowadays' to, 'most films churned  out by Hollywood'.

 

Not sure where I read it, but the American army gives large amounts of money to film directors who show America and the American army in a positive light. Francis Ford Coppola didn't get money for Apocalypse Now because it was considered too critical of America's part in the Vietnam war.

Every aspect of culture is being POLITICISED

 

The woke political correctness mob are weaponising everything

 

This means that what is promoted in all areas whether its film, theatre, literature, art, poetry, music or whatever will all be things that are pushing the agenda

 

So what is being pushed out on society is not what has the most artistic merit but what is pushing the woke agenda. Essentially art has been replaced with activism and the world is poorer for it

A lot of movies reveal the cabal's hidden agenda, and the true nature of our make-believe world, but relatively few do so in a way that's beneficial to the viewer... in a way that's spiritually uplifting, inspiring and confidence building.

 

For uplifting films I'd recommend films made for children, but ones that are also made with adult satisfaction in mind. Fairy tales contain a lot of positive information. Books are the ideal medium, but every so often, a director comes along who adds insights to a classic tale that are unique and full of value. Of course, there are also many stories and films that come somewhere in the middle.

 

Fairy tales were originally much darker than the ones most people have come to know through writers such as Hans Christian Anderson, and the Brothers Grimm. A lot of artists over the past century and a half have taken very old ideas and reworked the essence of these stories in such a way so as to create an almost original appearing story, and in some cases they no longer even appear to be simple fairy tales, but they still have a lot of the essential information embedded in them that are seeds for growth, and new ideas.

 

Why are stories made for children that also satisfy adults, the best places to find information? It's the last place a conceited person with the wrong attitude would look. In order to find inner revelation, the heart needs to be open, and the intellect needs to be at the service of the spirit. Proud people who value their intellects and academic knowledge, above anything else, are too busy concerning themselves with how to impress others with their cleverness and status. "That's all part of the dream world, only suitable for children, and dreamers", they say, and so they look down on such things from a position of superiority, as they believe their brain's intellect is far superior to the spirit that comes from the heart.
