I have a feeling in my mind I have seen this before and better.
When I saw the trailers for Geostorm my initial impression was that it looked like it might be an exciting film. Then I thought about other trailers where I felt the same thing and decided to wait for it to come out on DVD. I'm glad I did, this would have been a complete waste of $10 to go to a theater. Geostorm is the same old tired disaster film we've seen before with the obsessed scientist who alienates his wife and child, they betrayal that costs him the job that means more than anything else to him and the daughter who is 13 going on 25 and more mature than her father. Can you say trope?
Then there's the plot, someone has taken over control of a giant network of satellites orbiting the Earth intent on preventing extreme weather but using it for a weapon. Along comes our hero to save the day. Yeah, we haven't seen anything like that before. What makes this beyond ridiculous is the Earth is heading towards a geostorm which will wipe out most of the worlds population if our hero can't stop the program. Since this is Gerard Butler hero of Sparta he manages to stop the geostorm with 20 seconds to spare. Yeah, right, like weather is that precise.
Everything about this film was just a warn and tired cliche' of all the disaster films that came before it. I'm sorry I even spent the $1 at Red Box to see this.
Dinesh D'Souza exposes the Big Like of the left.
As a child I watched many, many war documentaries on WWII with my dad, they were on TV every Sunday. This built an interest in the war for me and all the players involved. I read much about the Nazis and the Fascists. Since I also grew up during the cold war I learned about the Soviet Socialists. Back in the 1970's the left would point to the Soviets as how the world should be, everyone equal, free everything and that America was bad. Then the horror of Soviet Gulags and political prisoners came to the west with testimony of Solzhenitsyn and others and I realized there really was no difference between the Nazis and the Soviets. It was then I realized that the if the Soviets were on the left, the Nazis were as well.
As I grew further into adulthood I began to see the similarities of Democrat goals and those the Soviets claimed. I also grew very suspicious of how Democrats were appealing to illegal aliens, trying to use them to replace citizens. It became clear to me that if Democrats were working to import voters to support their platform, they weren't working in favor of the citizenry, but instead working to gain power over them. This is EXACTLY what the Nazis did.
The final straw that pushed me to believe that the Soviets, the Nazis and the Democrats were all the same was when I learned how the Federal Government under FDR deprived Japanese Americans of their rights and detained them in internment camps. The only difference between the Democrats and the Soviets and Nazis was that FDR didn't have the Japanese killed, this was probably because he didn't have the same control over the USA that Stalin and Hitler had. Thanks God for that.
Today I see no difference at all between the Nazis and Democrats. In the 1930's The Nazi's had a street army known as the Brown Shirts. The Democrats had a street army called the KKK. Today the Democrats have a street army calling itself Antifa. Same politics, different names.
Putting the Nazis on the right was the most successful lie the Democrats ever committed. Thanks to Dinesh the truth is now out there. The critics can lambaste this film, but it is historically accurate to anyone with the desire to look. It also only just scratches the surface. There is so much material in history that shows how tight the Democrat and Nazi goals have been. The Democrats haven't change who they are and what they want, the only thing they've done is changed their propaganda.
Very interesting that 82% of viewers liked it but the tomato meter is at 4%. It's also interesting that none of the reviews I read actually refuted the facts in the film, they just tried to trash D'Souza. Typical of liberals.
