    Hmmmm...is Peele more than he seems? Since he is from hollywood you would think he is a left wing hack.....but?

    'Us' Review: Intense Warning About the Horrors of Socialism | Breitbart

    And this is a normal family. A loving family. This isn’t Hollywood’s perverted view of family. The kids listen to the parents. The parents have earned that moral authority. Mom and dad are in love. There’s no dysfunction, no hidden underbelly. Best of all, the fact that the Wilsons are black has nothing to do with anything. Us embraces the ideal of e pluribus unum, most especially through the Wilsons’ friendship with the Tylers, who just happen to be white.

    Race is never an issue. Never brought up. You wouldn’t think a Hollywood Oscar-winner like Peele could even grasp the concept that this is how most Americans live. You see, unlike the media, hysterical left-wing politicians, and too much of Hollywood, out here in the real world we’re not obsessed with skin color. We hardly think about; and just like the Wilsons and the Tylers, we have achieved the color blindness our twisted elites have not. However…

    This is a horror movie, which means something’s going to come along to destroy all this harmony, and wouldn’t you know, it’s… us.

    But it’s really not us, it is the worst of us — the greedy, envious, grasping side of us, that part of us that wants something for nothing, that wants what everyone else worked for, that believes we are entitled to it. And we will take it through violence and murder, because that’s our idea of justice.

    The Wilson’s are terrorized by their own doppelgangers: crude, malevolent, angry, bitter doubles who are, without question, Peele’s stand-ins for socialists. He’s even a bit on-the-nose by dressing them all in … red.

    From out of nowhere they show up to organize, terrorize, menace, bully, and destroy what everyone else has, what everyone else worked for — and I’m talking about good and decent people who have done nothing to deserve this.

    You see, the Wilsons are the movie’s real us — the most average of Americans, guilty of nothing more than live and let live.
    --------

    Smaller themes abound. Let’s just say the gift of children and the instinct to protect them will help to keep you alive. And children must learn how to fight for themselves. The battle against the evils of socialism is not one they can shy away from.


    This is also a cautionary tale about the importance of a owning a gun and learning how to use it. The Wilsons do not own one and you cannot help but think how much different things would have gone had they done the right thing.

    The NRA should sponsor some screenings.
    ----

    Jordan Peele is a helluva director. The staging, pacing, and editing of the middle forty minutes, which are about as perfect as a horror movie can get, are nothing short of brilliant. Us also has a terrific score and song selection.

    What’s more, there are a ton of laughs that in no way feel out of place. The performances are top notch, most especially the gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o, who takes full advantage of a dual role any actor would kill for. As her son and daughter, Evan Alex and Shahadi Wright Joseph also stand out.

    Imagine being such douche bag about politics that you have to look at everything with a retarded partisan bent. Sad and pitiful, but mostly funny.

    If the left wing would stop pushing their left wing agenda in every single movie, t.v. show and kids cartoon, we wouldn't have to talk about this crap....but just about every t.v. show has a left wing message embedded in it and we have to put up with it.

    I can not watch programming that is intentionally political. There is enough division in this country without it being injected into my entertainment.

    I am also a "gamer" and the fucking PC/political bullshit has infested many of the gaming franchises that I used to enjoy.

    It's so bad that many critics now judge tv/movies/games based on their political undertones.

    ENOUGH!

    You both have valid points. Our entertainment industry has crossed a line and that is sad. It's one thing to make a movie about a particular political figure or incident but when you feel the need to shoehorn social justice bullshit into everything you produce you've gone too far.

    Battlefield V
    Battlefield was my most enjoyed franchise. The dev's took the shit so far that sales tanked and the population is a mere shell of its former self. The series was always about the gritty front line experience of the average man but EA pushed DICE to infuse black men and females into the frontlines of WW1. Ok we can deal with that but then for V which is the WW2 sequel they took it to a whole new level of pandering and wrecked their dedicated fanbase in the process.

    The Last of Us 2
    A sequel to arguably the best video game EVER created that managed to infuse the cinema level story (I actually shed a tear after finishing the prologue) and plot into a video game. The original had gay relationships but they were done in good taste and were relevant to the story of the little girls experience in a post apocalyptic world.
    Now in the sequel we are being told that women warriors rule this world and the gay shit is front and center. The original was never about womens empowerment or the LGBTQ movement.


    The new Battle Royale game (1 vs 99) came out to thundering success and blew all kinds of records. Keep in mind this type of game HAS NO STORY/NO PLOT/JUST KILL OR BE KILLED/BE THE LAST ONE STANDING.
    A couple weeks after release the developers released a statement saying that 3/4 of the avatars are gay...
    Like really? Wtf is the point of that in a battle Royale?
    Far Cry 5
    A great game BUT the developers had all kinds of fun taking pot shots at American politics, the right and to a lesser extent the religious.


    There are plenty more but my point is we dont need this pointless shit in games. The whole point is to escape reality for an hour or 2 every now and then not have everyday politics thrown in your face.

    Andromeda is a fun game but you are correct. They took a STELLAR franchise and shit on it with their agenda.
