Last night, I watched the movie "The Hunt" ($20 on Amazon) which is, in the most shallow interpretation, about rich liberal elites shooting conservatives / Trump supporters for sport. I really enjoyed the film which I didn't consider it as "woke". Yes, it contains fairly extreme violence, but it also is a tight satire of how stereotypes and extreme adherence to dogma don't mix well - filled with metaphors and ironic one-liners ("Go fuck yourself, Liberty" ). If you've seen the film, what was most striking to you? For me, it's another reason to re-read "Animal Farm"!

lol at having to explain this film won't offend the people that post on here, and them STILL getting offended by a film they haven't seen that's made to be controversial to get this reaction.

The Hunt is a satire that sends up both the left and the right. There’s nothing woke about it.

Non-stop action, super dark humour, and plenty of feel-good revenge! Ben Shapiro interviewed producer Jason Blum — known for The Purge, Paranormal Activity and Get Out — on last week’s Sunday Show.

Don't get caught up on the political spin. Had no idea what this movie was about. Stumbled upon it and really enjoyed it for entertainment purposes. Fast paced, ok acting, funny and not 3 hours long.

Saw trailers and never watched...obvious it is Red propaganda anti-Deplorable trash. Because once again the left does not hate TRUMP 2020 as much as they HATE his supporters.

No... It's not as woke as you think...

@Admin oh - so it is "woke" but just a little woke eh? ha!

We did Animal Farm as English Litterature in high school.
It changed me at the age 16. Read 1984 directly after that. Really influenced me.

Wonder if it will be allowed in today’s liberal schools.

Orwell was on the left. He went to Spain to shoot fascists.

Can’t believe you chose to pay $20 for an Amazon movie.

Crazy. First the $3.99 movies went up to $4.99 for HD, then $6.99 for 4K... now all the big companies are asking $20 for new releases since the theatres closed.

I think they would be surprised how ready the rural Americans are for this, and the idea that the safe space crowd could ever be a real threat is ludicrious

it's ironic that the right have managed to be terrified of the "safe space" crowd for five years or so now?

@bastion Disgusted annoyed and mildly amused is not terrified. The only terrifying thing about the left, is their creation of a lemming tsunami that's threatening to take you(me) with them, over the cliff. ...That's all.

@IgorRuss It's obsessed the right to such an unhealthy degree they can't even admit how angry it's made them.

@bastion "angry" and "terrified" -- although not mutually exclusive-- are not the same.

Refuse to watch it! Not supporting this type of garbage

@Admin Since you mentioned it, did you see the 1999 movie Animal Farm? That one was good.

I've not... looks like it's free on Youtube

@Admin Check it out if you get some spare time, it was good.

@Admin Animal Farm book page count is only 114 pages I believe. Still that movie is a good one to watch.

@iThink Quick fact: the voice of Squealer was the actor who played the synthetic human Ash in the movie Alien (Ian Holm).

@SpikeTalon thanks for posting.
