Steven Spielberg said on Monday that War of the Worlds, his remake of the classic tale of alien invasion, could be taken as a statement of America’s deep unease following the September 11 attacks.
Or, it could be a ripoff of H.G. Wells’ 1898 classic book of the same title, and subsequent film from the 50’s.
Ever notice how, with the left, it’s always described as “American unease”, then they point around the globe and tell us how uneasy every other country is at our response. When Spielberg says “American uneasiness”, he’s the uneasy American. I don’t know why though.
Hollywood provides a chuckle when they vehemently opposed all wars, and yet are able to shamelessly make millions of dollars depicting those very acts on celluloid.
Actors and directors who accuse others of personally profiting from war, while they’re standing in line at Malibu Bank & Trust to deposit a check for their role in “Saving Private Ryan,” “Apocalypse Now,” “Platoon” or the hundreds of others, had better rethink their position. If there were no war, Hollywood would have only about half of its current financial girth Ã¢â‚¬â€œ which, come to think of it, is the best anti-war argument I’ve ever heard.
