Red Pill Movie Review — The Last Jedi


 

Here is finally a Star Wars movie that is kind of good.  After the prequels and The Force Awakens, we have a movie that doesn’t cause too much groaning while watching; this is a rather nice complement I think.

There are elements stolen from the Empire Strikes Back, but it is different enough to make you not say “Oh Crap, they remade another Star Wars movie”.  There are space battles, light saber battles, “discover the force in yourself” stuff, plot twists, against all odds situations where all seems lost, etc.  In addition, there was character development, something that we have not seen so much lately.  Fortunately there was no Jar-Jar or Ewoks to gum up the works.  And there was not any explicit SJWing, for example, making a character gratuitously gay.   It kept flowing forward nicely for two and half hours (once again with few groans).

As for the groans, there were a few.  The First Order has a kick-ass powerful new ship that intends to destroy the Resistance Base.  It is called the Dreadnought and is fully staffed with British Men (except for Diarth Emo).  In all fairness, many of the good guys are British, but I am not sure it evens out.  In attacking the Dreadnought, the Resistance sends these ships that they call “bombers”.  KThey had a classical WWII style bomb rack with bombs.  I laughed.  They were as slow as molasses.  They all were shot down except for one that dropped its load, destroying the Dreadnought.  What is wrong with this picture?  There is no gravity in space so the idea of gravity bombs is stupid.  Perhaps these ships were designed by the new engineers not subject to academic rigor at Purdue.  Furthermore, ships in space move rather fast; as such the weapons need to either instantaneous (like lasers) or guided (like missiles).

Lots of the pilots were chicks.  Most of them looked rather nice.  This was to be expected in this day and age (the chicks as pilots part, movies always have had fine looking ladies).  Our old friend Admiral Ackbar was ejected into space after the bridge on his ship was hit.  A particular woman replaced him, but it seemed like it was a gaggle of women.  Probably the Dark Side of the Force made this happen, timing the movie’s release to the peak of the #MeToo Movement; where powerful men are eliminated, being replaced with women.

In the end, it was a pretty good movie with not an excessive amount of CGI and with a story that wasn’t boring and totally predictable.

    I won’t be watching it. The last movie I went to was based on Murder on the Orient Express. Forget the name of it. Anyway it was rubbish. I’ve lost interest in movies which is a pity because the closest theater is a good and yet inexpensive one. However I very much enjoy watching the old ones that my dad shows on his reel-to-reel projector such as Buster Keaton and Errol Flynn.

    Half of the fun of the old movies is seeing how my little rellies such as Wee Meddy react to it. They just love it when Buster Keaten knocks himself about. The old cliche of the man with a long plank on his shoulder turning around and whacking someone on the head sets the little kids off into peels of laughter. Wee Meddy ends up rolling on the floor.

But if he does wander, it should be noted that he is not the only traitor in the marriage. She betrayed him. She promised him a wife and instead gave him a stepmother. The two have now betrayed each other, each in their own way.

    LOL… it looks like Deti decided to write a guest post for Matt Walsh.

    “A wife who belittles her husband, cuts him down, nitpicks him relentlessly, holds her affection — both physical and emotional — as a ransom, nags him endlessly, criticizes him constantly, humiliates him in public and to her friends and in front of the children, and will not allow him to take a leadership position in the home, cannot be terribly surprised when he begins to withdraw. And if he cheats — which would be a great and indefensible evil, no matter how cold and domineering his wife may be — it cannot be said that he was the first. She cheated him; she lied to him, by promising to respect him and treat him like a man, only to turn around and treat him like a child.”

    I do agree with this. But again, the wives who AREN’T treating their husbands like that, are probably not going to get cheated on or “seriously consider” cheating on their husbands either.

    This is so sweet. I don’t always agree with Walsh on a few things, but this is almost exactly what my husband has said –

    “I am blessed to have married a woman who operates differently. She respects me without condition, even when I have not earned it. She builds me up and in the process helps me to become more deserving of the respect she has already granted me. GK Chesterton said the great lesson of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is that a thing must be loved before it is lovable. I would add only that a man must also be respected before he is respectable. I have grown as a man, a husband, and a father, because my wife treated me as a leader in the home long before I had any idea what it meant to lead or how to do it.”

    New York’s own Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has made “believing the women” her core issue. She led the carefully orchestrated denunciations that forced out Sen. Al Franken, and she’s even continued standing by the Columbia University “Mattress Girl” long after the woman’s claims were totally debunked by her own text messages.

    But Gillibrand wound up having to partly walk back her slam of Bill Clinton. After she said he should have resigned the presidency over his intrinsically exploitative affair with a White House intern, Clintonite Philippe Reines slammed her for ingratitude — noting that the Clintons helped her rise to her current high office.

    And Gillibrand dutifully backed off — clarifying that, if the nation had today’s awareness back then, Clinton’s conduct would’ve been inexcusable. Got it?

    A student has described going through “mental torture” after a rape case against him was thrown out in court because police had failed to hand over more than 40,000 messages from his accuser.

    Liam Allan, 22, faced up to ten years in jail charged with six counts of rape and six counts of sexual assault against a young woman over a 14-month period that began when he was 19.

    The criminology student at Greenwich University had spent nearly two years on bail and three days in Croydon Crown Court when the trial was stopped in a dramatic fashion after it emerged police officers had failed to hand over evidence that proved his innocence.

    While I was skeptical of the allegations, it’s not popular in 2017 to defend someone accused of rape. Facts be damned. So I would typically stumble through a couple of sentences and say something along the lines of, “Yea, it’s definitely not good. I guess we will have to see what happens exactly.” . . .

    That was as far as I could go to defend Anderson, even though I wasn’t buying the accusations at the time.

    Unfortunately, an allegation is now a guilty verdict in the public eye. That’s where we’ve gone too far in the other direction.

    The news of Anderson’s rape accusation shocked the college football world, but notice the fact that charges were never filed, the accuser dropped her victim protection order, and then the latest report that she was allegedly doing this for a future political career did not gain nearly the attention that the initial accusation did.

    NO one in my media circles have asked me about the story since the actual FACTS have come out and the story has unfolded as it did. No one littered me with questions about Cleveland County district attorney Greg Mashburn saying, “Definitely charges are not warranted under these circumstances.” No one asked me about Anderson passing a three-hour long polygraph test.

    No one asked me about this latest report in The Oklahoman, which included the following:

    One friend told police Thornton had said “this would be a ‘great thing’ for her political career following the Air Force,” The Oklahoman has learned. The friend told police Thornton had said “female-empowered political organizations would love something like this.”

    That’s sick. Frankly, it’s just as sick as someone committing an act of sexual misconduct. Both people are trying to ruin someone else’s life.

    I saw Last Jedi over the weekend. Was OK. 2 stars. SPOILER ALERTS: If you don’t want spoilers, move on and don’t read.

    Strengths: Decent wrapup to the Luke Skywalker character. Engaging story and a lot more backstory to Luke and Kylo Ren. Daisy Ridley as MarySue , er, I mean, Rey, is pretty good except when she tries to go all tough girl. Oscar Isaac is ok as Poe Dameron; Carrie Fisher was fun to watch in her last film role. (Wonder how they’ll kill off Leia in the last film?) Nice to see Laura Dern. Special effects are top notch

    And Benicio del Toro was fantastic in his little cameo. All he needs now is a Star Trek role and he’ll complete the scifi fantasy comics trifecta and keep him in film roles for life. I wonder how much he cost Disney for a week’s worth of shooting work.

    Weaknesses: Substandard acting. Isaac still has bits of scenery permanently lodged in his colon. Domhnall Gleason who played the British ginger, General Hux, devoured the entire set. Mark Hamill at times kind of phoned it in.

    But by far the worst was, and still is, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren. First, Driver is miscast. He was a terrible choice as a villain/antagonist. He looks like a pussified 17 year old kid with facial complexion issues and pouty lips who was recruited out of a suburban Chicago high school from his senior class play. I don’t believe for one minute that this pouty emo is some kind of Dark Side master. And his acting is poor. He’s not menacing. When he’s supposed to be conflicted or boiling over with rage, he looks like he’s about to burst into tears. Someone should tell him that quivering lower lip does not convey barely contained anger. And for shit’s sake pitch your voice lower, Adam. What, they couldn’t get someone who could, you know, actually ACT to do this part?

    I think it’s more tied to her emotional desire for him than sexual attraction. The sexual attraction is only part of the story.

    I’ve known couples in the past who had sexual attraction for each other yet the woman still disrespected him. I know of one currently because he told me the story and is all sorts of confused right now. Even feminists have sex and they think men are their mortal enemies not worthy of even being human.

    I know you’ll keep beating that drum because you haven’t strayed from it…and I agree to a point. But I think there’s a bigger picture out there to this. I think it also includes more emotional and spiritual components.

    I read the Walsh article

    #1 if infidelity is a great evil you haven’t seen a fucking thing. Infidelity sucks ass bit it ain’t genocide, the drug trade, abortion, islam, fractional reserve banking or 80% off what skypes do.

    #2 The next good article from Walsh will be the 1st. Granted he started out strong in that article but his vag power kicked in and he went the typical blue pill feminist tradcon anti masculine route of makimg sure to always call men out when you are calling out the poor behaviour of women. Which is what I expect from a churched beta male high on his own vagina fumes

    Then there is Walsh himself. A total pussy who has not seen very much of the world, not been married very long, never, to the best of my knowledge done anything particularly masculine etc etc trying to dictate how more experienced men should live. Not to mention I am fair certain he has owned up to being a feminst…. again that’s what churched up tradocns do..

    It would have been a much better article if Deti wrote it and Deti ain’t wrong; tingles = respect. I am not sure how God intended marriage to because as I recall you dont see many happy marriges discussed in the Bible but last I read 11% of marriages are high sex, low conflict which means the other 89% of marriages suck ass because regular sex is the only thing that offsets the burden of having women in the lives of most men. Most of men don’t really care about kids or carrying on the family name, which is the second reason to put up with the burdens.

    And let’s face it, the only way a woman can helped you become a better man is if you are such a fucking pussy even your balls are made of pussy

    You get no argument from me that marriage is about much more than sexual attraction. That’s really not the point I was making.

    I was making the point that a wife’s respect for her husband and how she treats him are directly related to her sexual attraction for him – when she gets all into her flesh (mind/will/emotions/body). Women can overcome this. But most do not. And even those who overcome it still get fleshy and slip back into it. That’s the basis for shit testing. Shit testing is essentially

    “I’m testing your masculinity. Please stand up to me and tell me to shut up, then have sex with me. And if you don’t do that, if you can’t even stand up to me, how in the hell are you going to stand up to a REAL threat like a man or a gang or weather conditions or loss of a job or war or catastrophe?”

    I’ve already posted today on the topic of the potential for Franken to “un-resign.” He’d always only said he would resign in the coming weeks, so I presume it would be procedurally easy to decline to follow through on his earlier statement. What I’m putting up this post to discuss is the political future of Kirsten Gillibrand, who I think wants to run for President. She chose to elevate her profile over the Franken scandal and she succeeded dramatically — getting an “avalanche of Democratic senators” to join her in calling for Franken’s resignation, which seemed to force him into abruptly acceding to her imperious demand.

    If Franken turns around and says he won’t resign, he will be talking about fairness, due process, and evidence-based judgment. Whatever he says will be critical of the way power was exercised under the leadership of Kirsten Gillibrand. This is her signature issue, and she made a grand show of flexing her muscle, and her fellow Democrats behaved as if she were their leader on this issue. If what they did is portrayed as ill-considered and rash, Gillibrand looks like someone who should not be trusted with great power.

    At least four senators, including two Democrats, have reportedly said that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) should reconsider his resignation.

    Sen. Joe Machine (sic) (D-W.Va.) said that the deluge of Democrats calling for Franken to resign was “the most hypocritical thing” he has “ever seen done to a human being,” according to Politico.

    “What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” Manchin told Politico. “The most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen done to a human being — and then have enough guts to sit on the floor, watch him give his speech and go over and hug him? That’s hypocrisy at the highest level I’ve ever seen in my life. Made me sick.”

    ‘I won’t go into detail about the marital problems but will say that each of us suffered some emotional distress and were not equipped with the relationship skills needed to find solutions to the problems. Our lack of those skills was the eventual undoing of our marriage.

    Our children were secure, healthy and happy. They had a good relationship with both parents, were not subjected to arguments and domestic violence in the home. I can say with certainty that neither had ever thought of the possibility of their parents divorcing.

    We were your average, middle-class family. There were two cars, a beautiful home, and an active social life. Our home was filled with friends and family for regular get togethers. We laughed a lot, communicated deeply about our problems and planned for our future.’

    There were moments when I wondered what life would be like outside the marriage. Could I meet someone who filled my every need? My ex had similar moments I’m sure.

    I mean, I guess he had similar moments. I didn’t bother to ask.

    There were times when I couldn’t stand the sight of my then husband when everything he did irritated me. And, more often than not, I couldn’t imagine my life without him. I’m sure that he had such moments also.

    Pretty sure he did. Mostly sure. Stop asking me questions!

    Our marriage didn’t make it, though. Like a lot of low conflict marriages today, we fell victim to divorce;

    Divorce attacked and killed our marriage. Like when Bruce Wayne’s parents were murdered on the street outside the theater.

    Hire crazy women one should not

    Last week I considered our culture’s vanishing burden of proof when a prominent man is accused of any sexual impropriety. Certainly I wouldn’t want the bad old days of sexual harassment to continue. But there must be some way to find justice for women who have been abused without rushing to punish men who may not have abused anyone.

    You can think of crimes as a sort of pyramid: At the top, there are a relatively small number of actions that we can all clearly agree merit the severest sanction, if proven. And then, as you slide down the walls of the pyramid, a growing number of cases that are less and less bad. At the base of the pyramid is a gray area where reasonable people can disagree about whether the evidence is strong, or the behavior alleged merits any sanction.

    What happens if we try to apply the sanctions that are clearly merited for the guys at the top to the guys in the middle? What happens if we try to move the line down until it encompasses more and more of the guys at the bottom?

    One risk is that the public will eventually rebel — and that when they do, the public won’t distinguish between the top of the pyramid and the middle, because the people trying to raise awareness of a problem have deliberately blurred the lines. There’s a real risk that in the resulting backlash, the baby will get thrown out with the bathwater.

    The same logic applies to the burdens of proof. If unsubstantiated claims are accepted at face value, then eventually enough will turn out to be false that many future claims will be disregarded — whether they are plausible or not, whether they are substantiated or not. That was the harm done by cases like the Duke Lacrosse scandal, the UVA rape case, the Tawana Brawley accusations, and many others. But there’s another potential harm we also have to think about.

    Let’s say that we do manage to establish a social norm that a single accusation of “inappropriate sexual behavior” toward a woman is enough to get you fired and drummed out of your industry. It’s the crux of the issue so eloquently explored recently by Claire Berlinski: What would a reasonable and innocent heterosexual man do to protect himself from the economic death penalty?

    One thing he might do is avoid being alone with anyone of the opposite sex — not in the office and not even in social situations. You might, in other words, adopt something like the Pence Rule, so recently mocked for its Victorian overtones. (Or worse still, work hard not to hire any women who could become a liability.)

    What are the odds of Franken actually leaving the Senate?

    I’m not sure what the odds are, but I do think that with the defeat of Roy Moore (remember him?), they’ve become a great deal less than they were before.

    Franken’s resignation always seemed to be motivated by the need to get Moore—to make him less likely to be elected, and/or to make him easier to censure or toss if elected. If Moore had won, Franken would have had to be sacrificed for the Cause.

    ‘MEN ON STRIKE: THE SOCIAL CHANGES THAT CAUSED MEN TO OPT OUT OF MARRIAGE’

    https://winteryknight.com/2017/12/19/men-on-strike-the-social-changes-that-caused-men-to-opt-out-of-marriage-2/

    ‘I often encounter “pro-marriage” people while gathering stories for the blog. These pro-marriage people come in two varieties.

    On the one end of the spectrum are people like Terrell Clemmons and Jennifer Roback Morse, who understand marriage, but who also understand the social changes that have made marriage unattractive for men. Both Clemmons and Morse have a background in STEM fields, so they are able to understand incentives and tradeoffs. They understand that society has to rollback the changes to education, divorce laws, etc. if they expect men to be interested in marriage again. They understand that men are not just accessories of women, but instead have their own desires, feelings and reasons for marrying.

    On the other end of the spectrum are feminist men, who are not able to understand the changing incentives that face men in a world that has evolved under the influence of radical feminism. It is just simpler (less thinking) for these men to accept the radical feminism as a given, and then urge men to “man up”. I think a much better idea would be for the “man up” crowd to realize how marriage has changed, and how the schools and the workplace have changed, then make all of these things more attractive to men. It doesn’t do any good to try to “dare” men into jumping off a cliff. Men aren’t stupid, and they do what is in their own best interests. If the man-up crowd wants younger men to marry, then they need to change the incentives offered to men. And that means changing women first.’

    If a tattoo of me she had
    mind I would not

    I am a white person who grew up without any faith and started practicing Buddhism during college. I attended a temple, studied the history, and genuinely followed it for 13 years. During that time I got a large om symbol tattooed on my hand, which admittedly was a fad. While Buddhism is still extremely near to my heart, I kind of let it go after having to move to an area with no temples. And as the conversation about cultural appropriation has developed, I’ve been feeling deep tattoo regret.

    I’ve seen a few tattoo artists who have turned me away because any cover-up will likely only turn into a giant blob. I also sought laser removal but was told the color and placement of the tattoo will render treatment ineffective. Recently, an Asian friend of mine asked me to cover the tattoo around her family because it really bothers them. I feel like a total jerk. I’ve gotten several annoyed stares and I’m not sure how to make things right.

    Appropriation was just something I was not aware of a decade ago when I got this tattoo. I try to keep it covered with sleeves or gloves, but I need a better long-term solution. What do you think is the best path here?

    I received this reaction recently when I wrote a post at The Federalist titled, “Can We Be Honest About Women?” In that post, I expressed my concerns that the #MeToo movement has turned into a witch hunt against men as accusations are immediately taken as fact and the definitions of sexual assault and harassment have broaden to include even benign, natural interactions between men and women.

    I also sought to bring some balance to the debate by showing that men are not the only ones who can use their sexuality to control and manipulate. Women do it as well, using their femininity, sexuality, and beauty as a source of power. In addition to this established generalization about the sexes, both men and women interact with one another with a sexual tension that is harmless and good. We need to respect this dance between the masculine and feminine and discern the difference between abuse and acceptable sexual expression
