So yesterday we reviewed Wolf Warrior 2, and kind of lightly touched on the fact there was propaganda in it
SpeedRcr_X
But obviously there's a lot of it, and this youtube reviewer focuses on the propaganda buried in it
SpeedRcr_X
He hits it on the head, though honestly this could be said about a lot of 80s American films too

Well one thing I noticed was they were happy to have plenty of Africans in secondary roles, quite unlike how they convinced Disney to downplay Finn in The Rise of Skywalker.
SpeedRcr_X
Well it is a culture war, isn't it? It was the US vs Russia, now it's China vs the US.

Yesterday I said there wasn't anything particuarly Asian about the film and I sort of think that's the point. You want it to feel like a Watern Blockbuster so people eat it up and the hidden messages in it.

You recommended it as popcorn watching. You taking that back?
SpeedRcr_X
No, there's lots of great action. Just come for that and don't let the rest of the jingoistic bullshit suck you in.
FireFly_9
But to counter that point - there's *plenty* of action movies out there. Why even give one with this questionable pedigree any of your time?
FireFly_9
I mean we did because we didn't know what it was about when we chose it.
SpeedRcr_X
I guess
FireFly_9
It's not even like movies such as Harry Potter where the author became toxic - the work wasn't suffused with their attitudes (though continuing to support them is a problem) - these movies come with the poison baked in.
SpeedRcr_X
...When you put it like that, yeah... I'd take it back and say give Wolf Warrior 2 a pass.

December 19, 1998: Luna was attending an audition for a new TV show, when Zoicite attacked using Kyurene, determined to find the Rabbit. As the Senshi ran and screamed in a panic, The Four Strange Sisters joined them, trying to kill 'taru for no good reason. Prince Endymion got dressed like Santa Claus. When all hope seemed lost, the Senshi got a break through the sudden appearance of a lolicon Sailor Luna. Sailor Moon used the Moon Healing Escalation attack to win.
