I wanted to create a thread which addressed propaganda in movies but I wasnt sure if it made more sense to make a new thread for every individual film or to simply update one thread.

Well, I'm going with a single thread.

Have you seen a movie lately and noticed a lot of propaganda? Come here and tell us about it.

Lets see how this goes. I'll start.

I wanted to first mention a couple of general trends.

First, that Hollywood now loves the idea of encouraging or promoting "first world problems".

EVERYTHING is a major issue.

Is it Hollywood's goal to perpetuate or encourage/instill this idea that we're a bunch of weak, frail, emotional losers who cant deal with the smallest of life's problems?

Secondly, that getting cancer is very sad but a "normal" part of life in America.

That we should get accustomed to the fact that most of us will get and probably die from cancer.

Of-course what they dont address is WHY cancer rates are skyrocketing, whether its the food, GMOs, BPAs, vaccines, air, water, fluoride etc.

Any themes or movies come to mind?

I was watching Hell or High Water last night and the mom had been sick for some time. I cant recall if they said she had cancer but it seemed like that was the implication.

Interesting. Hadnt really noticed that but will probably be more likely to pick up on it now.

The Robocop remake was the most hardcore Neocon vision of DARPA ever made by Hollyweird (not to mention being one of the biggest remake insults to the original ever).

The Martian. 'home grown organic potato's' to quote it directly among other stuff.

Avatar evil corporations, and 'killing' someone else's planet.

The ALiens Anthology evil corporations again.

Day after tomorrow. Climate change crapola, and Americans run to mexico for 'safety' !!

2012 more climate change crap this time China saves the world, and everyone ends up in Africa!

Elysium. That's a twofer. illegal immigration, and 'free' healthcare!


Supergirl is infested with propaganda right now.

Luke Cage is as well.

Fear of the Walking Dead. Which can be summed up succinctly as zombies in Mexico.

Habla brainz ?

Madam Secretary as well. Which after the election that was based on one of the presidential candidates will finally end.

The Good Wife same story already ended.

Scandal nothing but political propaganda.

Everywhere I look there is nothing but propaganda in film and television.

There is no where left to escape it.
