here’s A Thing…

Summah Tiiiiime

Summer Movies. Fun, right? Well, not so much since moviemakers lost the ability to originate new ideas, like the other movies due this September, Rambo: Last Blood & Joker. again.

This Summer Movie is a kind of Hunger Games / Deliverance / The Purge sort of thing.

Oh wait… Is this the movie about Teh Elite™ paying to hunt Teh Deplorables?!?? [Which way ya think that fight's gonna go? heh...]

But now Universal has pulled the movie. Lots of stupid reasons are being conjectured [in the sonorous tones of absolute certainty].

    The comments on Slate are gold. The leftists/commies are freaking out.

    Ace had a pretty good takedown of the movie.

    Basically, he said that basic writing of a script says there have to be some of the deplorables that need killin’ and the hero would also have to have some sort of leftist redeeming quality to justify her survival, and there was no way to spin this movie as anything other than what it is: A leftist wet dream.

    On the plus side,
    stiletto heels are back with a vengeance

    I think the Left’s problem with this movie is pretty simple:
    they‘re the rich sadistic elitist tyrants, and
    guns are used against them.

    I know…
    retitle it “The Lolita Express”

    So, who put up the money for this project?

    How much of it was actually spent on making the film?

    What will be the “return” to the “investors” now that the studio has canned it?

    Will the investors be able to write-off the loss against their tax?

    See also: the original version of “The Producers”.

    Seems to be a certain amount of coincidence going n here.

    How it should have ended:

    The man who broke out of captivity in the aircraft is me. I grab Miss Stiletto’s oh so martial arts dancer arm and fucking break it, pick her up and tosses her into her friends.

    Being someone who does physical labor for a living, and a person with real fighting experience, I beat the crap out of everyone, and free the other hostages.

    I then explain to the pilot that I have had GA pilot training, and he can either land the aircraft, Or I can, after I f*cking kill him.

    Everyone involved gets prosecuted for their prior murders, and gets hung.

    The end.
