Hollywood is partly responsible for how public opinion is shaped. The majority of Americans have their opinions shaped by trends in the popular culture and a lot of what we think is fashionable, a lot of the opinions we make are based on agendas and programming provided by a studio somewhere in either Hollywood or New York.
The Pentagon recognizes the power of Hollywood and lately has been more or less the directors and the writers with hidden agendas to rewrite history to suit its own strategy.
The propaganda machine is now being used to inspire Americans to get behind the continued war. The propaganda is being used to sway public opinion about history and current events that seem to be a bit nebulous like the attacks of September 11th, 2001, the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, the Benghazi attacks and the shootings at Aurora, Colorado and Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
They are also attempting to even shape our opinions about certain political figures and changing the truth about their shady pasts and actions.
There seems to be a never ending menu of films that include references to the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, military intelligence, black ops, the militarized local police, the prison system and even military events that allegedly shape history.
For a lot of people it is no surprise that Hollywood has made notorious deals for financial profit. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis along with Freeman will discuss the past of the American film industry’s compromises in ‘Hollywood Hitler‘. A show that will show that the spirit of fascism is alive and well in film.

No boobs ??? damn I read the thread title wrong again.
Anyway to add some substance to this post..... I've often wondered about movies meaning more than just pure fictional entertainment, such as some kind of expression of the global consciousness. I remember seeing the watchmen with a few friends and feeling a little out of place with how blown away I was with the message between the lines I got from it. I often feel like Dr Manhattan from that movie, I resonated with him alot.

I agree that using such titles does make research that bit harder.
For anyone who doesn't know
When entering words for google to search you can use quotes to force the results. for eg..
Enter into google Battle for la "saucer"
That forces google to only return results that include the word saucer.
You can also do this Battle for la -"saucer"
The minus sign forces it to ignore results that contain the word saucer.
