I was frustrated when I took my kids to see Walle - but they wanted to. At least it had a decent theme of getting off your lard ass.
I was upset I wasted the energy to rent Hell Boy II. I really liked Hell Boy, but what's with this green, death to humans theme in a good scifi movie.

Last nigh I was an idiot. I should have known better. I rented "The Day the Earth Stood Still" Ultimately it was a libtard, greenies wet dream. Aliens come and save the world (not us) by detonating a emt that stops all electronic (and presumable combustion) devices. It ends before they explain that 95%+ of the population is now going to meet the 4 horseman of the apocalypse since all water and food distribution is gone as well. Hell this is their idea of a best possible outcome - people dead, earth lives - oh sorry a percent or 2 of the people survive maybe.

Please add to this list so I can stop watching crap by accident.

I rented that one too the other day. We watched as much as we could, but as soon as that "scientist" started crying to the alien "People can change! Give us time to change! We can save the Earth from ourselves!" We both looked at each other with a and turned it off. My g/f doesn't really lean too hard to the right either, and it still disgusted her. Lame movie.

The China Syndrome

An Inconvenient Truth

Fire Down Below

Who Killed the Electric Car?

Not super bad, but Final Fantasy did have the stupid, living planet Gaia crap at the end.

Never saw it, but judging by the commercials I saw, probably Ferngully.

There was this stupid Disney short movie at Epcot about how building a dam would destroy everything because then no one would have any water. And we shoud all live in harmony with nature like stone-age tribes in Africa. Technology is bad, etc, etc.

The worst one EVER was "The Day After Tomorrow".... I almost got up and left. It was ridiculous and such an eco-freak,
libtard clusterfuck of a movie. I was PISSED I actually PAID to see it... I felt ripped off.

There are several more though..... I despise "Message" movies.

Dude I have no idea what he's talking about. There was a small elves vs humans rivalry thing where the bad guy wants to kill all humans. Nothing like the planet needs to be saved from the terrible humans or anything. He read too much into something that wasn't even there. You should see HB2 if you liked the first one.

The Day After Tomorrow is the all time worst, and the science in it is atrocious.

I think people take the "message" of Wall-e the wrong way. It's more of a commentary on human laziness and megacorporations than anything. It's supposed to be hyperbolic. And as for the environmental thing, well, I'm not a tree hugger but I acknowledge that there are long lasting consequences for our actions. I don't believe in global warming, but you'd have to be blind to say that we are not having a harmful impact on some aspects of the environment.

We didn't invade Mexico. Remember? They "closed the border" and we had to make a deal to forgive their debt to let us in.

Bullshit.

If I was president, the convo would have gone like this:

"I'm sorry senior, we have closed the border."
"Oh, the border's closed? Really? I have a couple divisions on their way from Fort Hood that say it's open. Congratulations, you just became the 51st state."

Maybe he's talking about how they didn't want to kill the forest elemental? In any case, Hellboy 2 was not an eco-freak movie.

My wife dragged me to it (she's got a thing for Jake). As the "disasters" happen, tornadoes in Hollywood and snow in NY City and panic grips the population, I lean over to her and say "and us folks in flyover country would just get out of bed 15 minutes early so we can get to work on time". That's what we call "summer" and "winter".
That movie did for environmental science what The Core did for geophysics.

I concur. The piles of trash are more a plot device to drive humans off the planet. There's no moralizing about how the trash was created in the first place. Plus it's a really good movie.

IMO The Day After Tomorrow is the worst piece of enviro propaganda tripe ever made. Yes, even more than An Inconvenient Truth.

I read an interview with Jake Gyllenhaal when the movie was released. It was fucking ridiculous. Rather than promoting the movie he talked about how much he learned about the fragile environment and evil carbon emissions. So basically starring in a absurd piece of fiction made him an expert on the environment and global climate change. I've come to expect that sort of thing out of Hollywood but it still irritates me.

from the previews, it looks like "The Road" has been changed from the post-nuke world of the book to a post global warming movie. pretty lame, since I loved the book.

Eh, both those movies are a little more deliberately detached from reality. I wouldn't call them propaghanda. It was more like they took contemporary beliefs about humans and the environment to set the stage for their setting rather than using their setting to push a specific view. They let the commonly held "myths" provide the basis for the movie but didn't spend much effort flogging the point home once the setting and plot was set.

I don't know if I'm describing that well but there is a difference between propaganda and just using pop culture to tell a story that contemporary people can relate to. It's not like Kevin Costner flogged the global warming point through out the entire movie. It was pretty much just the setup for the movie and that's it.

Not to hijack the thread but... someone mentioned "The Core".

Every once in awhile, I go to Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics and I reread their review.

Always good for a laugh. (A lot of the other reviews are pretty funny as well.)

And now back to your regularly scheduled thread...

Wall-E

A fantastic movie despite the undertone.

Happy Feet

Utter crap beyond the scene with all the dancing penguins.

The Day After Tomorrow

Utter crap, especially with the Al-Gore lookalike President and the wondrous yellow tent that can protect from -250-degree cold.

On Deadly Ground

Yeah, I'm going to go green because Steven Segal says so.



I'm sure there are others...
