A little balance would be welcome every once in a while. It's not that I'm hung up on fictional characters having a POV that differs from mine. It's the balance. Politics don't have to be thrown into every thing. The liberal bias is just getting a tad amped up for my tastes.
There are actors, and actresses from both sides of the political spectrum I just don't care for. Quite honestly Streep is just another actress to me.
Politics doesn't have to be thrown into everything? They aren't. Go see the latest Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Totally politic free. Go see Peter Rabbit, totally politics free.
The best movies have a POV. Have you seen the movie "Network"? It's great. I think you'd dig it. I don't agree with everything the characters say, but I love the movie.
Look at Roseanne. She's pro trump and I've watch the revival. It's alright
"Patton"? Great film. Don't agree with everything Patton says or does, but it's a terrific performance and a good movie.
"JFK" JFK is pure conspiracy theory Mumbo jumbo with little basis in reality, but it's a damn entertaining film. Heck, Oliver Stone annoys the hell out of me and he's a nut, but he's a damn fine filmmaker(or use to be).
See my point?
There is no liberal bias. There is a liberal POV, sure. But liberal bias? I'm serious, do you get these talking point from Fox News or something? Even if there was a liberal bias, so what? Liberal means liberty and Liberty means freedom. Are you against freedom? What's wrong with liberal POV?
Also, you realize the original two GB films have politics, right?
I don't mean to harp on this Meryl Streep thing but when I see a loose thread, I gots tuh pull. So what Streep films have you seen? Sophie's Choice & Deer Hunter are considered some of the best acting ever done on celluloid. You haven't seen them. What exactly don't you like about her? Cause it sounds like you don't even know and are judging based on her opinions.
Look, movies, TV and acting are an art. Art has a history of liberal, free thinking. Always has, always will have. It's not new. The Sean Hannitys and Laura Ingrahams and Donald Trumps of this world will always be on the wrong side of history. Always. You can't stop progress. The old ways die and make way for the new, that is the way of the world. History will remember Obama as a great man hampered by racists and time, History will remember Donald Trump as a warning of how things can go so wrong, so fast. Trump didn't win the election, Hilary Clinton lost it. But we will always ask ourselves "Who ya guna call?"
