There is no question that movie going remains a big part of the entertainment
fare for North Americans. More than two-thirds (71%) of the U.S./Canada
population – or 246 million people – went to the cinema at least
once in 2016. The question is what are the influences coming out of Hollywood
that shape our beliefs and world views? We can look to the Vidangel legal
controversy to get an answer. Despite good faith efforts on the part of the
company to preserve the profit incentive for the film producers while reserving
their right to clean up the product to make it more family friendly, the film
producers persist in their claim that they continue to own the product despite
having sold it. What is their motive? It is simply to indoctrinate the public
with their PC agenda. Remember many of these Hollywood folks suffer from the
whited sepulcher syndrome - a Biblical ailment where the Savior likens
hypocrites to whited sepulchers, " which appear beautiful outward, but are
within full of dead men's bones, and all uncleanness." Why does the
public continue to tolerate this onslaught on basic Judeo/Christian values?
It amazes me that there are still people out there that just don’t want to
get it. As a man I am in control of my own facalties, I can make the excuse to
objectify women based on thier clothing choices or to treat them respect and
dignity. It is not women’s responsibility to ensure that I have control of
myself it is mine and no article of clothing changes that, any suggestion
otherwise is an insult to me as a man.
Look at the dresses worn by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Oprah, and others. And then
they wonder why men, Hollywood and elsewhere, objectify women. SERIOUSLY?! Hollywood, YOU promote trash on the screen. I'm not buying.
These people make millions selling sex and violence. Now, they want to lecture
the little people on how to behave. Hypocrites! I don't need to be lectured
by a bunch of limousine liberals.
Hollywood cracks me up. They're all acting even when they're not
acting. What a pathetic industry from top to bottom if you think about it.
@ Tekakaromatagi"When the actresses start dressing with the same
degree of modesty and respect as the actors,..."I wonder, in all
seriousness, if you believe those same actresses should be allowed to drive?
Keep it up Opie, best way to get him reelected in 2020.
Women are going to transform and 'disentrumpefy' our government and
institutions pretty soon. If anything, this may be the positive, if wholly
unintended, legacy he leaves us.
When the actresses start dressing with the same degree of modesty and respect as
the actors, then I will believe that Hollywood has truly changed their
Hollywood has no credibility!What they say or think, does not
matter! They have been complicit with hiding or even protecting monsters!The fact that I'm even responding is a waste of my time! But I
want to be heard!
Great message Oprah. emb
Glad to report that the only movie/show I have seen in this whole lineup is
Hollywood has just discovered something they never knew they had ......
morality. I think we will find that it is just a passing fad that will fade
away when they select something new to become passionate over.
