Meh, he put out one video on how he didn't like the word cuck. I didn't like the word when I first came around it, and in a lot of ways I still don't like it, even though I find myself uttering it silently when I see something cuckish happening. I won't begrudge him on that. I still think he has a first-rate mind, and I usually find him to be pretty insightful. Regardless, I wouldn't write him off as a valuable source of opinion/commentary just cuz he put out one stupid video.

No, he used the dog as a metaphor for the cheap tactic of inserting a element into a work that elicits sympathy, so that criticism of the work can be conflated with disliking the element. "You didn't like the movie about brave firefighters? What have you got against firefighters?"

It was a joke, because this is how I've had multiple SJW's respond to analogies.

It's about the only Tom Hanks movie I like. If you want to see bland look at any other Tom Hanks movie. The guy doesn't act, he just says his lines. Forrest Gump is possibly the only movie where he acted and the story and writing are bounds beyond any of his other films.

Anybody name one thing done poorly on Forrest Gump that Castaway did right.

This is by design. Hollywood is effectively a propaganda arm for the US Armed forces and they have dedicated teams to helping Hollywood make them look good.

It's a movie about a person who doesn't think for themselves, who stays quiet and does as he's told and becomes unbelievably successful from it. He even gets his dream girl in the end.

And the one time he acts on his own impulse when he drags Jenny out of the bar she is singing in while nude, she berates him for interfering in her life and not understanding. The movie really is about obedience to the system and being mindless, thoughtless sheep.

I disagree. The creators may think that way but this preposterous accusation is being spread far wider than them. I believe the accusations of misogyny are part of a consensus-led attack against men.

edit: God, I hope "cute dog syndrome" isn't actually a thing outside of those with immediate and strong reason to be biased. Please tell me people aren't actually that fucking stupid. Please tell me I can hate a movie about cooking without people assuming I hate to cook.

I understand the point that he's trying to make, because I use it on my family whenever Forrest Gump is on TV and they don't want to watch it, before saying it's a joke and changing the channel, because I can respect people not liking the same things I like.

Kind of the same deal with the Mad Max reboot. The movie was exciting at parts, but mostly forgettable with a horrible anti-male bias seething through it. They even wasted a performance from a brilliant actor (Hardy) and boiled him down to a serious of grunts and gesticulations.

It is literally inconceivable that it should be in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes and it is almost as if these "critics" were scared of being labeled as misogynistic for calling it out for what it actually was (forgettable and uninspiring). To add insult to injury, it got multiple nominations at the Oscars. I honestly believe that if you had replace Furiosa with a male lead instead of Charlize Theron basically pretending to be a dude, that this movie would've been mocked relentlessly by the main stream media.

By the way, this is from his book A Year at the Movies. Recommended reading if you're a cineaste or a MSTie; a must-read if you're both.
