THE 100% CLUB: AN ODE TO MOVIES WITH A PERFECT TOMATOMETER SCORE

queen-hillary-no-choice-clinton

 

One of the CAA-repped actress/propagandists on the below list is the one that Twitter intervened for to freeze THIS account (PolFilmBlog).

These are the malignant pustules all connected through CAA and shoveling the exact same neoliberal, warmongering bullshit, fighting against moral policies and non-interventionism.

This article is important:

Tulsi Gabbard Has Enemies In High Places

 

Clinton insiders use their Hollywood agencies to marshal their “entertainment” industry propagandists:

 The ceremony was attended by Bill and Hillary Clinton, Cory Booker, Elon Musk, Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan, and Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg. Also, none other than Kamala Harris, who Kives donated $5,000 to, was supposed to attend but had to cancel according to THR’s sources. As a matter of fact, CAA employees were the 8th largest donor to Harris’ “Fearless for the People” leadership PAC, to the tune of $16,500 that yearCAA as a whole donated almost $479,000 to candidates and PACs in 2018, with Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and Elizabeth Warren all getting donations of $11,000 or higher. Oh, and CAA represents all of Joe Biden’s interests.

 

And onto the “TALENT” at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA)…
  • Anderson Cooper
  • Jake Tapper
  • Chris Cuomo
  • Bill Maher
  • Whoopi Goldberg

 

[United Talent Agency] UTA is another firm much like CAA with the same function and goals, and years after he authored that email, Darnell Strom would leave CAA to head up the newly launched “Culture and Leadership Division” there. His role is described as working with clients who “want to expand their diverse businesses and cultural influence at the intersection of entertainment, politics, the arts, and thought leadership” enabling clients to “connect and create big, bold, brave ideas…across all mediums”. He also described UTA as a “creative hub” for leading voices, helping them “build businesses and find global audiences in unexpected places”.

Twisted Satire

Somewhere between Salo and Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, this surprising journey twists things around unexpectedly.

I found this story amazing and disturbing, but with gag moments thrown in to lighten the mood. It’s a very strange take down of the fascist mindset, by having a rogue fascist, a deserter no less, turn the tables and out-fascist the fascists.

It kind of boggles the mind what Private Herold managed to accomplish, more so as we learn that this is a true story! 

The character gets darker and darker and darker. If that’s your kind of tale…

Brilliant filmmaking, and the second I saw the trailer I knew this was my kind of movie.

This is a satirical drama from Iceland, and it’s also a great tour of Iceland. Locations span the gamut. It’s also tightly plotted with elements that all pay off by the end.

American films could do this kind of story, but they don’t.

We have a real revolutionary, a one-woman army, and being a woman’s story, there’s also the mom angle. In this case she has to adopt, so if she’s caught as Iceland’s greatest industrial saboteur then that’s the end of her motherhood.

I feel I’ve said enough already, and you’ll get the rest from the trailer. Funnily enough, there’s a selection of musicians that also follow her around making the soundtrack during the scenes! It’s utterly hilarious, particularly when the tuba player retweets some news. This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in 2019.

Election

Yes, with young Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick. Funny political humor.

American Beauty

If you can stomach spending some more time with Kevin Spacey, this 90s classic brings the creepy dark comedy to suburbia.

A Boy and His Dog

It’s the rapey wasteland apocalypse, not Lassie.

Triangle

This is the greatest mind-fuck movie I’ve ever seen. Highly underrated.

Chinatown

The Polanski Los Angeles noir classic.

Chaplin

Robert Downey Jr. becomes Charlie in perhaps his greatest role.

Fitzcorraldo

Classic Herzog subverting expectations time and again.

Aguirre the Wrath of God

My favorite Herzog film, kind of twisted, kind of poetic.

Monster

Charlize and Christina Ricci, and the true crime stories begin.

An American Crime

True story shows the depravity next door. So angering.

Kid Cannabis

The lightest crime story of the bunch.

Fear City

Pulpy 80s crime noir with an actually decent villain who is attacking strippers late a night out of some twisted moral code.

There were so many decent ones over at Crackle that I had to divide the post into two parts. Next time we head over to PopcornFlix.

District 9

Possibly the best movie that year, it works because it’s about more than it appears to be on the surface.

Postcards From the Edge

Carrie Fisher’s semi-autobiographical dark comedy about addiction and Hollywood.

Easy Rider

One of my top 3 films of the 1960s. It’s a journey into the heart of America, and it’s pretty great.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico

Robert Rodriguez does what he does, but bigger this time. Johnny Depp as a quirky CIA villain, Cheech shows up as a priest. It’s fun satire.

The Wackness

Ben Kingsley as a psychiatrist who’s more fucked up than his drug dealer patient.

True Romance

Tarantino brings his verbose underworld characters to life again, this time with an Elvis fetish.

Peggy Sue Got Married

Subverts the idiot culture of the 1950s, as Peggy Sue goes back in time and finds that she was perhaps misled on what life is about.

Blind Date

Funny high-concept relationship comedy, may have inspired me a bit for my next project. She told him not to give her any alcohol.

The Cable Guy

He’s only looking for a friend. Will you be his friend?

Black Dynamite

Modern Blaxploitation movie that is hilarious, full of satire and ass whoopin.

Zathura

Technically a kids’ movie, but it’s a great movie about a game that may be real, like Jumanji in space.

 

There are more at Crackle that you may like better, and you’d, of course, be wrong.
