Red Pill Movie Review — Rambo: Last Blood


I have a history of liking action flicks, but today’s typical action flick normally doesn’t do it for me.  Be it over the top CGI, or super ludicrous action, they just donate have the same appeal as of old.  This movie had been out for a couple of weeks,

 

I was casually reading some movie reviews, when I fell upon one by an SJW type who did not like it all; for reasons.  With that kind of endorsement, I decided to give it a go.

John Rambo has retired to a horse ranch in Arizona.  He is acting as a father to his niece (the Mother died, being Rambo’s sister, and the father ran off), who is turning 18 and will soon be off to college.  She learns from a childhood friend who moved back to Mexico that the father who abandoned her and her Mom has been located.  “Come on down”, the friend says.  Rambo warns her not to do it, and she agrees to follow his advice.  But then, she just had to know, so off she goes. IT turns out that the father was just as disappointing as she was warned about, leaving her in tears.  Her friend suggests that they go to a club to forget out it.  After some drugs in her drinks, she carted off to a prostitute under prisoner-like conditions.  Rambo gets wind of this and the game is on.

As for the movie, the character development is pretty good, action movie or not.  You care about the characters, wishing them to live (unlike some other modern actions movies, e.g Captain Marvel) .  The characters have weaknesses, demons, etc, with these not being overplayed.

As for the action, it is 80’s style ludicrous, not the super-duper ludicrous of the present decade.  The bad guys are really evil, with Rambo seeking revenge.  He tortures, he kills in a gruesome manner, for they all deserve their fate.  In the end, Rambo is wounded, kinda like a real person might be.  His fate is left ambiguous.

I can see why SJWs dislike the movie because of reasons.  To describe why they hate the movie, is to look stupid.  Let us explore what might have bothered them.

  1.  It is implied that Rambo’s niece is 18 and a virgin.   We can’t have that.
  2. The niece es’ 18 year old Mexican friend is fat, dresses like tart, is caked with floozy makeup, and is definitely not a virgin.  She steals a valuable bracelet from the niece and takes her pieces of silver for for bring the niece to the nightclub to be kidnapped.  What’s not to like?  We have a slutty Mexican girl who is a villain — bad, bad, bad.
  3. The Mexican gang that runs the human trafficking/prostitution ring, are just that, Mexicans.  We are shown how evil and heartless they are.  The implication is that this is how Mexico is.  There might be something to that implication.
  4. The niece’s true father says that she means nothing to him.  She has always meant nothing to him.  He couldn’t wait to abandon her and her mother.  If this was a white guy, there would be no problem here, but he wasn’t white.
  5. It is implied that the Mexican police are in cahoots with the bad guys.  Nothing to see here.

So if you want to see an older style action movie, one where the protagonist is both clever and strong, with good enough character development, and makes SJWs unhappy; then this is your movie.

    A brief outline, summarizing the contents of this essay and the scientific research papers cited within, is as follows.

    The potent chemicals in contraceptive pills are harvested from equine biowaste materials.

    Small chemical imbalances in the body’s endocrine system lead to big changes.

    The pill masculinizes the brain structure.

    The pill puts the female’s hormonal state into “pregnant mode” thereby rendering the ovaries and uterus fallow.

    The pill causes a loss of libido resulting in a reduced appetite for sex.

    The pill creates a false sense of calm by flattening emotional affect, reducing anxiety, and muting panic attacks.

    The pill decreases a woman’s Positive Affect, especially during ovulation.

    The pill decreases a woman’s Negative Affect, especially during menstruation.

    Women on the pill are more likely to experience clinical depression. Depression introduces a further unique set of symptoms, including her inability to function normally and feel love.

    The academic, medical and pharmaceutical industries are actively seeking methods to retain their consumer base, and to keep more women on the pill.

  19. That Daily Caller article borders on fake news. AOC’s response wasn’t in regards to the governor saying it would wreck Alaska’s economy, he actually said it “would impact our civilization as we know it.”, which is her actual stated goal. She thinks she’s gonna save the world by destroying modern civilization in the next 10 years.

    Frankly, I’m well past being done with AOC news. She’s an idiot, period. The end. Her importance is only that of a being a useful tool to her puppet-masters. Unless someone posts naked pictures of her grooming a cute female staffer; don’t call me, I’ll call you.

    Your past is terrible, and your future is terrible. The American past is a story of genocide, slavery, racism, patriarchy and colonialism. You should be ashamed of it. As regards your future, your very existence is in jeopardy. You may well die at a young age unless society completely shifts from fossil fuels to wind and solar power. In fact, your future is so bleak you should probably not consider getting married and having children.

    If you are a girl, you should know that American society has contempt for you. You will be paid less than a man for the exact same work and exact same number of hours of work. You will have between a 1 in 4 and 1 in 3 chance of being sexually assaulted if you attend college. There is a glass ceiling that will prevent you from professional success. And professional success, not marriage and family, is what you should concentrate on.

    Single mothers, and nearly all other women for that matter, won’t listen to a bunch of guys on the internet. The womenfolk won’t listen to men period, except selectively to the few alpha men in their circle, and only the bare minimum that they must in order to stay in good graces or out of trouble.

    The only thing that will bring bad girls of all varieties to heel is other women. Women used to behave themselves because they feared the wrath of other women, and the social consequences that would result from crossing the Queen Bee. Nowadays, women behave appallingly for the same reason. The only difference is the nature of the Queen Bee. A girl who doesn’t toe the line, whatever the line is, loses access to the social life of her community very quickly indeed.

    I see it in my two daughters, who try their best to bat their eyes and charm their way out of consequences when my husband lays down the law, but who cower when I have a quiet word to back up his edicts. It’s not that they don’t take him seriously, but that they recognize the pain of female ostracization.

    interesting. both my daughters will tell you they fear their Mama! no, they are not afraid of me, but they fear crossing me, they fear disappointing me, and they fear my ‘wrath’ if they screw up. it’s a healthy fear, imo. they have always known they are safe with me. they receive unconditional love and acceptance from me, but they also receive the truth.

    The guardrail of last resort?

    Statistics show that girls raised in a home with the same dad in it, who cherishes them and is involved in their lives, tend to not grow up into bad girls. It would be interesting to know if these women fear the disapproval of other women in the same way that the bad girls do.

    Ame – I have only caught bits and pieces of this baseball series. I’m going to make a special effort to watch the game tonight. I’ll be thinking of you and your husband. I find there is reason to cheer no matter who wins. For your husband, I’d like Houston to win. But they have won a bunch recently. The Nationals, not so much. So I would sort of like them to win, since they are so close. Who knows when they will be this close again.

    i do know that i did want my father’s approval growing up, but i’m not sure it drove me as i didn’t respect him.

    my daughters have also wanted their father’s approval, but i’m not sure how much that drove them before he died.

    Oldest and i were talking kind of about this the other day … and she said she always knew he was an unsafe person and didn’t know if she just perceived that or if something particular happened, that she’s forgotten, that drove that. i assured her nothing in particular happened to drive that, it was just who he was (she was thinking one, big, bad thing that her memory might have blocked out).

    i do know that when i tell them their Dad would be proud of ___, it does something really positive in them.

    i’ve always believed fathers are essential, foundational, needed. and it will still cause me to weep if i think about it too much that their Dad abandoned them – i have a lot of Mama guilt over that. i know … not my fault … but whoever said Mama-guilt is logical?! lol!

    With Yan Gomes at first and no outs, Turner hit a weak grounder toward third base, where Astros pitcher Brad Peacock fielded the ball and tried to throw him out at first. The throw arrived at first the same time as Turner, who knocked the glove from first baseman Yuli Gurriel as the ball rolled into foul territory down the right-field line. As a result, Turner advanced to second base and Gomes went to third.

    Plate umpire Sam Holbrook called Turner out for interference, which also meant that Gomes had to return to first. Martinez came out of the dugout to dispute the call, but because the decision was considered a “judgment call,” the play was not reviewable. And for the same reason — it was a judgment call — the game could not be played under protest.

    Still, the umpires did go to the review headsets during an ensuing pitching change, because, as MLB’s chief baseball officer Joe Torre explained to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal, both managers were told before the start of the World Series that they could ask the umps to go to the headsets if they were concerned about any rule being misinterpreted, whether it was specifically for a replay review or not.

    Baseball Rule 5.09(a)(11) states:

    A batter is out when: In running the last half of the distance from home base to first base, while the ball is being fielded to first base, he runs outside (to the right of) the three-foot line, or inside (to the left of) the foul line, and in the umpire’s judgment in so doing interferes with the fielder taking the throw at first base, in which case the ball is dead; except that he may run outside (to the right of) the three-foot line or inside (to the left of) the foul line to avoid a fielder attempting to field a batted ball.

Sure, husbands were nominally head of the family and actually had overall control because of his overall responsibility, but only a damned fool unnecessarily interfered with his wife’s “nest”. But then the sexes generally liked each other then, sure they both laughed at the foibles of the other, but it was little more than gentle ribbing ;-D

    President and Mrs. Reagan picked a stunning spot on which to build his Library. It is at the top of a tall hill / small mountain that gives way to a very deep valley. At one end of the Library, Air Force One juts out over the more shallow part of that valley. At the other end of the Library, where one can look out over the deepest part of the valley and out to the ocean, is their final resting spot, side by side in the ground.

    Being higher than the surrounding area lends itself to great beauty. But – fire burns uphill. So, that location also lends itself to fire danger. Record winds up to 80 mph have been blowing out there and all of the mountains surrounding Los Angeles. I’m in the middle of the valley and have had very little wind. Odd situation that is. We do get wind here – sometimes so strong that I wonder if my trees will give in.

    There are many horse ranches in the countryside around the are of the Reagan Library. I was watching television early this morning as they were trying to evacuate those in the most danger. Smoke so thick you could hardly see and blowing like crazy. Horses spooked big time. Proving the point that the best time to evacuate horses is before the smoke makes it nearly impossible. But – with winds gusting up to 80 mph, it is difficult to predict the path of the fire at any given moment. Plus embers carry for miles and start other fires unexpectedly.

    ^Adam’s post is great!!! BUT this one thing… I think fathers, if they hold their daughters to high standards and the daughters know this and have a good relationship, then they can influence their daughters’ behavior as well. There’s a HUGE shame in letting your father down for a woman… he’s her first example of male-female relationships, which is a big deal in teaching her what men expect.

    Right now… even as I’m typing this, our little female is trying to scold her oldest brother, and he’s just laughing at her ridiculousness!!! ❤ She's usually very feminine, sweet, but if she does things like try to scold him (keep in mind, this is like Baby-Babble scolding where no one knows what she's saying), it's not going to be taken seriously.

    Another psycho gf, another suicide.
    😦

    In the two months prior to his May 20 death, the couple exchanged more than 75,000 text messages, of which Ms. You sent more than 47,000. Many of the messages display the power dynamic of the relationship, wherein Ms. You made demands and threats with the understanding that she had complete and total control over Mr. Urtula both mentally and emotionally. Her texts included repeated admonitions for Mr. Urtula to “go kill himself” to “go die” and that she, his family, and the world would be better off without him.

    The investigation revealed Ms. You used manipulative attempts and threats of self-harm to control Mr. Urtula and isolate him from friends and family. It also found that Ms. You was aware of his spiraling depression and suicidal thoughts brought on by her abuse. Even still, she continued to encourage Mr. Urtula to take his own life.

    The indictment alleges Ms. You’s behavior was wanton and reckless and resulted in overwhelming Mr. Urtula’s will to live; and that she created life-threatening conditions for Mr. Urtula that she had a legal duty to alleviate, which she failed to do.

    well … you win some, you lose some. sadly, the astros lost this one.

    i think pulling Greinke was the down-turn point.

    but, wow … what a world series! it was fun to watch (well, for me … my Husband could hardly watch a lot of it).

    the Nationals played well and won … it wasn’t given to them; they earned it.

    i also think the Astros gave up when they pulled Greinke. poor decision to pull him, and poor decisions after that.

    To a large extent, the project of global citizenship is about trying to replace the concrete with the abstract, about exchanging the real for the idealistic. It’s a matter of trying to talk Americans into rejecting the pragmatic and industrious patriotism that, yes, made America great, and pushing on them, instead, yet another pernicious utopian ideology of the sort that almost destroyed Europe in the 20th century. It’s a matter of endlessly talking up ideas for radical change on every level of society—from ecological measures that would bring down the world economy to a neurotic obsessiveness with hierarchies of group identity that threatens to destroy America’s social fabric—instead of implementing practical reforms that enjoy popular support and would improve everyone’s life. It’s a matter of trying to persuade ordinary citizens, in the name of some higher good—whether world peace or world health or protection of the planet’s environment—to relinquish their freedom and obey a small technocratic elite. In the final analysis, global citizenship is a dangerous dream, a threat to individual liberty, and an assault on American sovereignty—a menace not only to Americans but to all humanity, and one that should therefore be rejected unambiguously by all men and women of goodwill and at least a modicum of common sense.

    American aid worker Kayla Mueller belonged to an ecumenical Christian group. In 2013, ISIS captured her in Syria. She was tortured, enslaved and, in 2015, murdered. A photo sent from ISIS to her family showed her with facial bruises and wearing a black hijab.

    From al-Baghdadi’s perspective. Mueller’s photo was terrifying, sexually swaggering propaganda. Then-President Barack Obama sent condolences to Mueller’s parents.

    But in 2019, the Pentagon named the operation to arrest or kill al-Baghdadi Operation Kayla Mueller.

    …that name has received little notice. However, it puts a woman who’d been raped, a dead lady’s face, on the Delta Force assault and signals that the U.S. military attack on al-Baghdadi and his henchmen sought personal justice for the slaughter of an innocent human being who came to Syria to aid refugees.

    “There is a darker side to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and it has nothing to do with the Green New Deal. She is unapologetically a bigot, someone who attacks others for how they were born,” he explained. “There is nothing legitimate about that. You can’t debate bigotry, it is pure poison. It is terrifying to think that someone who spews open racism has become a role model for the young people, but that is exactly what is happening.”
    Carlson reminded the audience that during her campaign for Congress, Ocasio-Cortez said incumbent Joe Crowley (D) didn’t deserve to be in Congress because he is white.

    “By Election Day the opponent was literally apologizing for his own skin color,” he said. When Crowley said AOC was playing the race card, she didn’t deny it. In fact, she confirmed that the election was about race. And that’s what’s wrong with the entire ordeal.

    “Not so long ago a campaign like that would have been considered deeply immoral. The press would have hounded Ocasio-Cortez until she apologized or dropped out but not anymore. The ruling class no longer recognizes universal standards of any kind,” Carlson said. “Racism, they’ve decided cuts only one way so they ignored Ocasio-Cortez’s race baiting and she got elected. Over time, like any untreated virus, her bigotry grew more inflamed.”

    From Stephanie’s link:

    … the gender-identity movement will eliminate the legal and civic recognition of all women. Unless women are legally defined by their biology, she explains, men will declare themselves to be women and take women’s private spaces, cultural events, sports competitions, legal rights, and political movements.

    People have always consisted of two parts: what their biology says they are and how they wish to present themselves to the world. For most people, those two parts were consistent and so no one really paid any attention to what words were used to refer to them. Men and male were interchangeable, as were women and female.

    The conversation that has risen in public recently is forcing folks to think about that “two parts” to all of us. The only solution to this public discussion is to stop being careless in the words we use. We need agree-upon words to describe what our chromosomes say we are. And we need separate agreed-upon words to describe how we wish to present ourselves to the world.

    We already have those words. People just need to be more careful in using them. As the definition of what constitutes a man or woman vary from culture to culture, it is most useful to use these words when speaking of gender – how someone wishes to present themselves to the world. As the science behind what XX and XY chromosomes create (male, female, or intersex) does not vary from culture to culture, it is most useful to us these words when speaking of sex.

    We have laws on the books that seek to mitigate the disparaties between what XX creates and what XY creates – in certain, specific circumstances. That is not difficult to understand. When discussing such laws, we really need to use the words that pertain to the disparities intended to be mitigated those laws. Those laws were intended to protect one set of chromosomes from the other. Those laws were not ever intended to address the disparities between the way people dress, or otherwise present themselves to the world.

    When folks seek to sow confusion by using the incorrect words, that can quickly and easily be countered by asking what word they use to refer to XX chromosomes and what word they use to refer to XY chromosomes and what word(s) they use to refer to how a person wishes to present themself to the world. And then remind them that the laws on the books were only ever intended to protect one set of chromosomes from the other set in certain, specific circumstances.

    Clears up the confusion immediately.

    I didn’t care for Rambo, though I wanted to (the author of “First Blood” and hence the franchise taught in my hometown; we all just get a thrill when a local finds the limelight, because we would seem them at lunch or at parties, etc. My mother took a class with a guy named Kinsella, who was an impoverished writer who produced “Field of Dreams”.) Critics appeared to hate the movie because it fails to subscribe to a victim model of Mexican society, and because it doesn’t present the “gender parity” model of female agency. (That is, Rambo is physically stronger than the female characters.) I thought the relationship with the older woman/investigator could have been interesting, but it wasn’t developed. The ultra-violence that goes on for 20 minutes in ACT III i thought was beyond stupid.

    An interesting Stallone movie, imo, that most people haven’t seen is “Copland.” It’s a character-driven drama.

    Ame, I thought the call on Turner was profoundly stupid, and I think you’ll see the rule changed this winter. That could have decided the Series.

    The problem is first base is in fair ground and the three-foot lane is foul; it is impossible to step on first without deviating left. Also, the right-handed box is in fair ground and Turner simply ran in a straight line to the base, touching it with his left foot in the center of the bag.

    Therefore umps don’t call interference unless a batter swerves into the perceived throwing lane in an obvious attempt to interfere. My take here was that the 1B knew that Turner was beating the throw (Turner is the fastest guy in the National League) so he didn’t stretch for the throw; he put his hand on the runner’s hip and waited for the throw there (the opposite of what you do if you are playing a bang-bang play straight). Smart 1Bmen do this because it occasionally works; they’re basically decoying the ump.

    Another way to think about this: If you overlay the other plays at first by runners on both teams, they ALL interfered in the sense that Turner “interfered”. This was a blown call and a bad case of CYA by Major League Baseball.

    Not to appeal to authority, but A-Rod, Big Papi and Frank the Big Hurt, on the Fox panel, also thought it was a badly, badly botched call. Everyone’s relieved that it didn’t cost the Nats the game.

    thank you for explaining this so thoroughly; it makes sense to me now. i couldn’t figure it out.

    Smart 1Bmen do this because it occasionally works; they’re basically decoying the ump.

    i remember them saying something like they’re told to aim for the runner with the throw b/c sometimes the ump will call interference.

    so … in that light, and based on what you wrote, it sounds like the decoy worked within the current rules of the game. i’m guessing the ump saw the ball hit the runner and made his call based on that.

    however, it was a bad call. it did not look like the runner could have run any differently – he ran the most direct route. if he had run any differently, he wouldn’t have beat the ball. and in light of (Turner is the fastest guy in the National League) … they knew this so played the ‘throw at the runner’ card, as apparently taught to do, and won the round.

    interesting.
