Sick of this bullshit!
I've been watching identity movies recently, even though they all got under 40% on Rotten Tomatoes - they actually deserved 60%+. I took a risk with them because RT gives harsh reviews to most movies, apart from the following types: Postmodernist (ironic), Holocaust/Jewish, US propaganda, Feminist, Race issues etc etc. Basically, if your movie is 'politically correct', you get a high grade on RT. Stoopid Sheeple!
The highest reviewed of all the identity movies was Bound, the one about lesbian criminals. It got an AMAZING 92% on RT. The only reason I can see for this rating is the lesbian feminist view expressed throughout - it definitely has nothing to do with the actual quality of the movie. I dare anyone to watch more than 15 minutes without hitting the 'STOP' button. The acting, the script, the clichéd characters, the vain attempts at being 'cool', the oh so obvious flirting, the hilarious symbolism - it's all so embarrassingly AWFUL! Two examples from the first 15 minutes are enough:
1. (Childish) Characterization: we, of course, have the Fem lesbian and the Butch lesbian. The butch one is so butch that she wears a pair of white Y-fronts. What!? HAHAHAHAHA! What is she gonna pull out of the 'Y' - a strapon? ??
2. (Adolescent) Symbolism: As fem lesbian watches on seductively, butch lesbian handi-woman/plumber (yawn) rubs hands up and down pipes until water gushes uncontrollably all over her hands. I wonder what that's all about? Doh! If it had have been a male plumber, it would've been laughed out of the place, and deservedly so.
I will try to watch/get through this drivel in the next few days, just to see if it has any redeeming qualities - ANYTHING at all that justifies a 92% review. I couldn't watch it all in one go - no way!
The scary thing is that Rotten Tomatoes is the world's most popular review aggregator, meaning that this review is the common view :(
Literally, the bottom line:
Equality is logical and cool - stupidity, hypocrisy and '2 wrongs make a right' are not.
