Weekend Box Office: Politically Correct Animation, Anti-McDonald’s & RFK Films; A Dull, Girlie-Man Bond

By Debbie Schlussel

Three politically correct movies and a dull James Bond come to the movies, this weekend. Incredibly, I’m rooting for the dull, girlie-man Bond to defeat the others, the lesser of several silver screen evils:

* “Casino Royale“–Read my complete assessment of the new James Bond actor, Daniel Craig, because that’s really half of my review, with which this half is a companion.

When did James Bond become such a girlie-man? At the beginning of his career, according to this one. Remember all of those hot, buxom women he had? Forget them because they ain’t in this film. In this movie, he has but one woman, and she’s a boring, homely, flat-chested accountant played by French actress Eva Green.

Bond giving up his whole career to sail around the islands with this French actress? Not believable or exciting. Ditto for the boring poker game scenes. That’s not Bond action adventure. Sure, there is quite a bit of action in this one, but it just isn’t exciting. It’s dull like the new Bond actor, Daniel Craig, a dead-ringer for Vladimir Putin mixed with Alfred E. Neuman.
And the villain? A guy named Le Chiffre who cries tears of blood? Yawn. Blofeld and Goldfinger beat him by a mile, several miles. The plot isn’t exciting either. Someone short-selling bonds and a poker game to win the money back. Ho hum.

The humanized, sensitive man, biker-shorts and jeans-wearing, tiny Bond? Yawner. Put some testosterone back in Bond. He needs it. A double O serving of it. Again, read my full critique of Daniel Craig, the newest, dullest Bond. Ever. In this case, Blonde equals Blah. Double-O-Blah.

Daniel Craig: Bond . . . James Bond, or Putin . . . Vlad Putin

* “Fast Food Nation“–OY! Sick propaganda. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. Long and boring, but so sick and offensive that people walked out throughout the film. By the end, over half the audience was gone. And they were the smart ones. Did Morgan Spurlock write a fiction film? That’s what this movie is like only WAY worse. The feel bad movie of the year.
Centers around a fast food burger chain, “Mickey’s,” which is supposed to be McDonald’s. Mickey’s employees pitting into someone’s burger and that someone eating it; Illegal aliens taking drugs and working at a meat plant, losing their limbs in the meat grinder; Scenes of animals being mutilated and torn apart for the meat; Illegal aliens having sex in trucks with meat plant supervisors to keep their jobs–If these are the kinds of scenes you want to see, then this movie is for you. For the rest of us, skip this 2-hour horror show.

The thesis of this movie is that fast-food chains have fecal material in their burgers, that human parts get in them, too, that illegal aliens pack the meat and torture animals to kill them, then dismember them in a disgusting way, etc., etc., etc. The idea is to gross you out and disgust you so much that you’ll never eat another burger. Don’t see the film and give in to that wish. It’s pure propaganda not based on any facts about McDonald’s.
Oh, and by the way, Avril Lavigne, you’re pretty, but you can’t act. Stay outta the movie biz. Others in this crappy, disgusting piece of celluloid dung include Greg Kinnear, a dusted off Kris Kristofferson, Patricia Arquette, and punk Ethan Hawke. Don’t forget that this horrid, left-wing, PETA-inspired film is brought to you by Rupert Murdoch’s FOX Searchlight Pictures.

* “Bobby“–Emilio Estevez wrote, directed, and co-stars in this dumb over-rated version of “The Love Boat,” involving fictional characters at a hotel who work there or on the Robert F. Kennedy campaign. Falsely named, since the movie is not about RFK and is pure fiction.
The movie ends with his assassination at the hotel. Hmmm . . . wasn’t Sirhan Sirhan an Arab who was doing the bidding of Palestinian Muslims? You’d hardly know because they don’t mention that or focus on it, and strangely, he wasn’t a character in the movie. Instead a woman (Lindsay Lohan) who marries a classmate to keep him from being sent to Vietnam is the focus. That’s glorified, and that’s why the left loves it. Ditto for more lefty cause celebres– hotel employees who sleep around or are members of various minority groups and are treated bad by Whitey and the Man.
Dumb scenes of hippie Ashton Kutcher tripping out on acid and mushrooms with preppy RFK campaign workers. Lots of ugly Sixties hairdos and clothes on trashy (how appropriate) Sharon Stone and Demi Moore. Dumb, very dumb, but left-wing baby boomers will love reminiscing back on their time which is well past.

It was hilarious to watch multiple real-life scenes of pudgy Emilio Estevez, a grown man (we thought), on Oprah, crying about writing and making this movie. Get over yourself, Emilio, your movie ain’t a masterpiece or even good. It sucks. And stop being a girlie man. Estevez told the Oprah audience that America became bad and uncivil after RFK died and that we need to relearn how to be good people. Speak for yourself, dude.
Guys, you will hate this film. Avoid being forced to take your girlfriend or wife to this film at all costs. Extreme skipworthiness.

* “Happy Feet“–A tap-dancing emperor penguin may be cute, but this movie is very frightening for kids. If you want your children indoctrinated with politically correct messages about the environment, alleged over-fishing, and pollution, take your kids to see this politically correct, animated penguin movie. And scare them half to death. Otherwise, skip it. The Sierra Club loves this movie. That’s a hint.

Clone Sean Connery. He was the real deal, on and off the screen. He was the one and only James Bond. All others are pretenders to the throne.

In the Estevez case; the turd doesn’t fall from from the outhouse. Martin Estevez (he changed his name to Sheen for “showbiz reasons” – was ashamed of being associated as a minority – goes to show you what a left-wing phony he is…then again, all left-wingers are phonies) and his son, Emilio, are dyed-in-the-wool, LIBERAL hypocrites.

Deb, some of the Kroc family, the founders of McDonald’s, have set up an “institute” or “studies center” at Notre Dame U which is known for training anti-Israel, anti-American academics. One creep trained at the Kroc Center –or whatever it’s called– came back to Israel and takes part in making pro-Arab propaganda, trying squelch the free speech of good Israeli academics [like Steve Plaut, etc.]. His name is Niv [or Neav?] Gordon. Check out what Plaut says about him. He’s off the wall.
I KNEW THE KROC FAMILY WERE LEFTIES (JOAN KROC LEFT MILLIONS TO NPR IN HER WILL), BUT DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THE KROC STUFF AT NOTRE DAME. REGARDLESS, THIS MOVIE IS NOT JUST ANTI-MCDONALD’S. IT’S ANTI-MEAT AND ANTI- EVERY BURGER JOINT THERE IS. I FROWN BIG-TIME ON THE VEGANAZI MOVEMENT, EVEN IF–AS A KOSHER CONSUMER–I CAN’T EAT AT MOST OF THOSE PLACES.

Sheeeeeeeeewt. It sounds like something for everyone: Dead Kennedys, Dead Spies, Dead Cows, and Dead P.C. Ideas.
The only actor who could even attempt to fill Sean Connery’s shoes is Tom Selleck. I wonder why all the little girlymen were given the nod instead.
And yes, America COULD have been a veritable utopia had “Bobby” been elected POTUS. IF, that is, your version of utopia involves Hollywood whˆres, a corrupt Camelot redux, and being in bed with the Mafia.
And speaking of dead meat, that reminds me: I must take that large chuck roast out of the freezer to thaw for tomorrow’s supper sacrifice.
And Finally: Penguins? I guess it’s a good thing that indigenous people don’t club THEM to death for subsistence, eh? (chuckle)

Casino Royale:…FLAT-CHESTED accountant!?
Yikes…they’ve ruined the “Bond” formula = Action + Buxon Babes.
I can’t go watch HALF a movie?

The Canadien on November 18, 2006 at 11:40 pm

POLITAINMENT—I actually expected Bobby to be good agit-prop, but these days people just can’ keep their revisionist ideas to themselves. Them Hollywood Ten commies could at least write good.

Debbie:
Sirhan Sirhan was actually a Maronite Christian. When he assassnated RFK the media correctly referreed to him as a Jordanian immigrant (he was born in the West Bank).
I saw “Bobby” at a free screening last week. If you think that RFK was was a tremendous man and God’s gift to the world you will like the film, otherwise it was a real snoozer.
YOU MAKE A GOOD POINT ABOUT SIRHAN SIRHAN, BUT ALTHOUGH HE WAS A NOMINAL CHRISTIAN, THOUGH NOT MARONITE–WHICH IS GENERALLY FOUND AMONG LEBANESE AND SYRIANS ONLY, HE’D ABANDONED THE FAITH LONG BEFORE AND STRONGLY BELIEVED IN THE ISLAMIC IDEOLOGIES OF ANTI-AMERICANISM AND ANTI-SEMITISM, WITH WHICH HE’D BEEN INDOCTRINATED AS A PALESTINIAN. THAT’S WHY I BELIEVE HE CAN BE CLASSIFIED AS AN ISLAMIC TERRORIST. THIS EXCELLENT ARTICLE, BY MEL AYTON, “THE UNAFFILIATED TERRORIST,” SHEDS A LOT OF LIGHT ON SIRHAN AND HIS IDEOLOGY:

I AGREE THE MOVIE WAS A SNOOZER AND ABOUT AS ENTERTAINING AS A LOVE BOAT RERUN.

The Fast Food Nation book was actually pretty decent, and it wasn’t anti-meat at all. It was against the massive meat production facilities, but he strongly supported local meat producers.
One of his main points in the book was that the big meat production places specifically hired illegal aliens and immigrants because they’d work for a cheaper wages. I would think you’d agree with his points on that aspect, although maybe it’s presented differently in the movie.
I AGREE THAT IT IS WELL-KNOWN AND TO BE CONDEMNED THAT THE MEAT PLANTS HIRE ILLEGALS TO DRIVE DOWN WAGES, SOMETHING I’VE WRITTEN ABOUT A GREAT DEAL ON THIS SITE. BUT IN THE MOVIE, WE ARE SUPPOSED TO FEEL BAD FOR THE ALIENS AND HOW THEY ARE TREATED, NOT CONDEMN THAT THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY. THAT’S WHAT I OBJECT TO, AMONG MANY OTHER THINGS, IN THIS HORRID, DISGUSTING FILM.

Debbie:
Also regarding “Bobby”, I thought the Linday Lohan character and storyline was totally ridiculous, and who needed to see that aging communist Harry Belafonte anyway?
I stayed afterwards for the Q & A session which had Emilio Estevez, Christian Slater, Freddy Rodriguez and Joshua Jackson. Estevez and Jackson mouthed liberalisms galore (taking it for granted that the audience was full of Bush haters. That is what always burns me up (and I assume you too) – the assumption that liberals make that everyone (even in Manhattan) agreees with them!
Regarding Sirhan Sirhan – some of the worst Arab killers of Jews were Christians (usually Greek Orthodox), I am thinking of the two leaders of the P.F.L.P. – George Habash and Wadi Haddad as well as the leader of the P.D.F.L.P. – a killer named Nayef Hawatmeh. The founder of the Fascist Baath Party in the 1930’s was a Christians (I am thinking of Michel Afluk).
THAT’S TRUE ABOUT HABASH BEING A CHRISTIAN (GREEK ORTHODOX–THOUGH HE WAS MORE LIKE A NON-BELIEVING COMMUNIST), AND OTHER ARAB TERRORISTS HAVE BEEN CHRISTIANS, TOO. BUT, IN GENERAL, IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF THE ARABIST CULTURE. (COPTIC CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT–AND ELSEWHERE–FOR EXAMPLE, THOUGH OPPRESSED BY MUSLIMS, HAVE NO PROBLEM JOINING IN WITH MUSLIMS IN THEIR UTTER HATRED OF JEWS, WHICH IS WHY IT IS ALWAYS DIFFICULT TO FEEL SORRY FOR THEM, AS THEY ARE OFTEN HYPOCRITES.) ANOTHER WHO COMES TO MIND IS THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY’S AMBASSADOR TO THE U.S., AFIF SAFIEH, A CHRISTIAN WHO WAS A HIGH-RANKING TERRORIST IN THE P.L.0./FATAH AND A RIGHTHAND MAN TO ARAFAT, WHICH MAKES IT CURIOUS AS TO WHY PRES. BUSH DIDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM EXTENDING HIM DIPLOMATIC CREDENTIALS. ALSO, AS I’VE WRITTEN, THE GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH IS NOTORIOUSLY PRO-HAMAS AND ITS PATRIARCHATE URGED HOMICIDE BOMBINGS. HE’S THE ONE WHO DID THE CAMPAIGN AD WITH RICHARD GERE (AND THE TOP PALESTINIAN CLERIC/CHIEF JUSTICE–ALSO A HAMAS HOMICIDE BOMBING SUPPORTER) FOR THE PALESTINIAN ELECTIONS.

One more thing regarding “Bobby” -notice how they tried to make the Christian Slater character (C.S. by the way is a fine actor) into a racist because he mentioned that most of the hotel workers could not even vote because they were illegal aliens anyway and that is why he did not give them time off on primary day? That should have gone without saying. Of course for Emilio Estevez it would be an act of political heresy to show a non white person as a racist.
AMEN. AGAIN, EMILIO ESTEVEZ IS A GIRLIE-MAN WHO CRIED ON OPRAH AND AT A PRESS CONFERENCE FOR THIS SILLY MOVIE. THAT’S ALL WE NEED TO KNOW. THE MOVIE WAS A SILLY YAWNER. THERE WERE NO LIKABLE WHITE PEOPLE IN THIS MOVIE AT ALL. BUT THE MINORITIES, BLACK AND HISPANIC, WERE ALL PRISTINE ANGELS. THAT’S THE WAY THIS OVERGROWN CRYBABY SEES THE WORLD.

Debbie:
Some of the biggest Israel haters have been Arab Christians – both in the Middle East and here in America. In the Middle East they hate Israel because they want to prove how Arab they are. In America the Israel haters are people such as Ralph Nader, James Abourezk i.e. Christians. I would not risk one Israeli soldiers life to save Arab Christians.
My prediction is that “Bobby” will go the way of “Flags of our Fathers,” quickly to the $1.00 movie theaters and then right on to DVD.

Debbie, you’ve said some pretty crazy stuff on this site, but calling the amazingly steaming hot Eva Green a Flat-chested accountant is crossing the line.
She is a fine lady, a worthy bond girl:

Ripper: I agree with you. Almost all Arab Christians that I know hate Israel, America,Jews and even Christian to some extent. In fact, I thought that they were Mozlums all along and was surprised when I heard that they were Christians. Whats annoying is that many of them came running out of the Islamic shitholes Palestine and Lebanon escaping minority persecution, but then start puking out against Americans at the drop of a hat, to show how Arab they are.
Check out any Arab Christian in ADC (American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee) and you’ll see how vocal they are about hating anyone who disagrees with Mozlums or even questions Islam. This one, for instance, is a Palestinian Christian. http://yousefmunayyer.blogspot.com/
See the bunch of bullcrap he has on his blog. He was also a regular columnist earlier.

When I was in college back in the early 1970’s, the biggest Isareal haters I came across were Lebanese Christians.

Ripper on November 22, 2006 at 2:15 pm

ewn–
If you are male and think that Eva Green is hot, you should get out more.
As to how she got cast, it might be because Daniel Craig has so little screen presence, that a hot chick would make this even more obvious.
Of course, then you have to ask how Craig got cast…
