Excellent documentary. “Why We Hate,” available on Amazon is also great

They should have given this award before Obama took office.

It should be named "Why We Hate Conservatives", or "Look everybody! More Hollywood degenerates hate conservatives."

Yawn.
.

Well that didn't take long.

Which segment of the movie was dedicated to the cause of hating conservatives? Can you give me the timestamp?

Can we talk about the real Elephant in the Room with this years Oscars, mainly that The Irishman was nominated? Fookin hell, I’d love to see Netflix’s diagnostics on the number of households that started that movie and never finished it. I barely made it 45 minutes .

One thing right, left and center should agree on.

I haven't seen it, hadn't even heard of it until this thread, so I watched the trailer and read a review in the Atlantic. My initial impression is that this is a really weird move for the Obamas.

I get their desire to try and address the rust belt demographic that moved towards Trump in the last election. I prefer the Bush clan's approach to politics once they left office - mostly shut the hell up and let the new crew elected by America do their thing.

But a movie where a Chinese billionaire comes to the US to "save" an industrial plant seems like a horrible look to pump out as the first film for your production company - if you are an American President.

He might have noticed there is a bit of a trade war going on and that the Chinese have been using every legal and illegal means necessary to outflank US companies for a few decades now.

But maybe the movie addresses that?
