If the culture is hyper influenced by media, then the coming trends don’t look good for liberals. And since liberals have dominated the Hollywood movie industry, maybe it’s time they took a hint and got in tune with their target audiences. We just aren’t buying liberal spin in the movies anymore.
Here are some examples of liberals trying to push their agenda, via movies, that didn’t work out quite so well for them.
The last 12 months haven’t been kind to movies with a left-of-center agenda.
Hollywood had a lousy 2017 in toto, of course. Summer box office receipts hit their lowest mark in more than a decade. Credit “The Last Jedi” and “It” for making up some of the lost coin in the year’s waning months.
Liberal films fared worse.
The Damage: $5.4 million
The Liberal Angle: The George Clooney drama fused a discarded Coen brothers script with the tale of a black couple hounded by white neighbors. The latter flowed from a horrible true story, but the lectures about suburbia’s hate wasn’t lost on audiences.
The Damage: $45 million
The Liberal Angle: The film’s female empowerment angle wasn’t as overt as its star’s liberal brand. Amy Schumer’s persona is overwhelmingly liberal in 2017, down to her comparing Trump voters to KKK members.
The Damage: $67,880
The Damage: $11 million (as of Dec. 27)
An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power
The Damage: $3 million
The Liberal Angle: Al Gore returns with both climate change alarmism and a smattering of hope tied to green energy advancements.
Battle of the Sexes
The Damage: $12 million
The Damage: $17 million
Roman J. Israel, Esq
The Damage: $11.8 million
The Little Hours
The Damage: $1.6 million
Professor Marston and the Wonder Women
The Damage: $1.5 million
Just in case the lefties missed it, America has swung back into Make America Great Again mode. We’re tired of being told how intolerant, and uncaring we are. We’re not buying it, or your movies anymore.
