Matt Damon is having a lousy year, and that has nothing to do with his awkward comments regarding the “MeToo” movement. Damon’s performance in Suburbicon appeared to be a career low, bringing nothing to the role of a Father Knows Best type gone south. That was a revelation compared to his work in Downsizing.
George Clooney's new film throbs with hatred for 1950s suburbia, no doubt. And maybe the 2017 version, to hear Clooney’s recent press musings. The racism on full display is underlined, highlighted and cast in bold type. Just try missing it. We dare you. Beyond that? Maybe it’s Clooney’s confession that he’s better off in front of the camera, not behind it.
Who better to tell America how to deal with racism than a white, highly paid, Hollywood actor?
Just in time for Oscar season, the Paramount Pictures film Suburbicon will be released this coming October. The film, starring far-left bomb throwers Matt Damon and Julianne Moore and directed by George Clooney, focuses on an Eisenhower-era couple’s move to the suburbs, expose their racism to those around them. In the process, the film will purport to exposes the racism that supposedly lurked in American neighborhoods of that era.
When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, some Americans thought the Electoral College rigged the presidency for Trump, and that hatred persists to this day. Once Trump became President, Syria’s latest chemical weapons attacked transpired and though most Americans supported that decision to bomb Syria, the radical left did not. In Hollywood, the level of post-election bitterness has only grown. Therefore, the entertainment elite has purposefully created content insulting millions of thanks to their severe cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The new original anti-business drama Incorporated premiered this week on the Syfy network. Produced by Hollywood lefties Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, it’s a liberal polemic preaching about the dangers of eeeeevil multinational corporations, capitalism, and global warming disguised as trendy, futuristic, post-apocalyptic entertainment.
Did we miss something, or did the media just admit Hollywood’s double standard on guns?
It was a pleasant surprise this morning to discover that USA Today entertainment writer Andrea Mandell thoroughly addressed the issue in a lengthy article entitled “Guns, Politics and Hollywood Collide.”
Actor Matt Damon thinks the United States should follow Australia’s example and have a mass confiscation of guns in order to rob Americans of their Second Amendment rights. It’s ironic that Damon made this claim while in Australia promoting the latest gun-toting action Jason Bourne movie (where he plays the lead role of an American spy).
Matt Damon is no longer mad at Barack Obama. In the October 9 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, the actor explained his affection for the President and previous unhappiness over with Obama. In 2013, Damon complained, “There are a lot of things that I really question, you know: the legality of the drone strikes, and these NSA revelations.” But now: "He's a remarkable human being."
Journalists help promote Hollywood celebrities while condemning average Americans for causing climate change. The same media go out of their way to ignore or excuse the hypocrisy of celebrity “environmentalists” who fly their private jets around the world, rent mega-yachts and live in massive mansions.
Avatar Director James Cameron warned of a future “world that’s in shambles” because of climate change, and said he believes “in ecoterrorism” yet, he owns an impressive private collection of motorcycles, cars, dirt bikes, a yacht, a helicopter, a Humvee fire truck and a $32-million submarine. ABC and CBS even praised Cameron for his submarine purchase, with CBS’s Gayle King saying she loved his “passion and curiosity.”
Last October, we relayed that the NBCUniversal-owned Syfy cable network made a development deal with leftist actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck for a corporate-dystopia series called “Incorporated.” Now The Hollywood Reporter is offering an update: Syfy has greenlighted the making of a pilot episode.
Corporate leftists demonstrate a surprising capacity for hypocrisy. The Syfy press release – coming out of Comcast, a large entertainment conglomerate with one of the largest lobbying staffs in the nation’s capital – comically imagines today’s trend in Obama-era government is a “dismantling of the public sector."
