'Elysium' is left-wing propaganda. Do you agree?

The multi-millionaire Matt Damon who made tons of money with capitalism usually by shooting guns in mindless violence has yet another left-wing move.

 Elysium  socialism

'Elysium' director Neill Blomkamp, star Matt Damon deny movie has political agenda

The Hollywood Reporter calls it a “politically charged flight of speculative fiction.”

Newsmax refers to it “sci-fi socialism” and “political propaganda.”

Variety said its one of the “more openly socialist political agendas of any Hollywood movie in memory, beating the drum loudly not just for universal healthcare, but for open borders, unconditional amnesty and the abolition of class distinctions as well.”

But the director of “Elysium,” Neill Blomkamp, begs to differ, as does the film’s star, Matt Damon.

    Hollywood socialists are so far gone, they don't recognize socialism when they're filming it.

    2154, Obamacare has failed miserably, amnesty for illegals has taken over the country. Elysium is the new and improved NWO headquarters. Matt Damon with muscles, burred head, bad tats and endless firepower poses as a white wonderboy for the downtrodden. The only thing missing are the peace loving blue vegan monkeys with sharp teeth, seven foot bows and arrows. More typical Hollywood bubblegum for the easily twisted brain. What did you expect, some fat left hand threaded wing nut in a camouflage pants suit? Nah, Jodie Foster probably has Hillary's head sitting on a shelf in a jar of pickle juice in her condo closet on Elysium, after all it is 2154.

    I was just saying how damon's on my list to never see another one of his movies. He talks about how great public schools are and then sends his to private.
    Lets see.
    Won't watch anything with damon, foxx, carey, fonda, oprah, hanks, the list just keeps getting larger. Funny how much I don't miss them.

    Since I'm probably the only person that saw it out of everyone commenting...no I don't think it was left-wing propaganda. I thought it was a entertaining science-fiction movie...but I also don't interject politics into every freaking aspect of my life...probably because I have one. I go the movies to be entertained.

    Decent movie overall...the effects used for the spaceships were awesome.

    Strange how liberals never like to admit left-wing propaganda is propaganda...reminds me of the liberals that claim that MSNBC is not biased.

    The righties admit Rush Limbaugh is a rightie yet the left is in a state of denial or their are by habit pathological liars.

    It is strange how I'm not a liberal and I enjoy going to see science-fiction movies. This is also kind of funny coming from a guy whose avatar is of a sociopath drug dealer in a FICTIONAL show...lol.

    What did you think of the movie or are you regurgitating stuff that you read second-hand? Maybe you should see it so your thoughts have a little more weight....actually you shouldn't. You don't seem like a science-fiction fan. If you were you would know that this kind of fiction has been made for the last 40 years.

    That is absurd, less absurd than when Rush Limbaugh said "The Dark Knight Rises" is a left wing conspiracy because it came out before the election and the Villains was named Bane (Bane capital was his weak addle brained connection), a DC character created in 1993 by Chuck Dixon a registered republican.

    I agree completely, but not for the reasons you may think. Going ll the way back to Homer and beyond, literature and theater have always grappled with the poignant issues of the authors' day.

    And since writers, actors, cinematographers, etc all fall neatly into the category of "artists", you shouldn't be remotely surprised that they lean left. Creativity requires the ability to think outside the box, for better or for worse. Conservatives are very firmly planted INSIDE the box, as it turns out... and that is also for better or for worse.

    Being artistic doesn't make one leftist, sorry to disappoint you. Also I'm conservative and I value creativity/innovation.

    Haven't seen it, so don't know for sure, but considering it's hollywood and Matt Damon, it's a pretty safe bet it's true.

    Won't go to a theater to see it, if I really feel the need, I'll wait till it comes out on dvd, then pick it up for a song at a yard sale. Shouldn't take long ... :)

    But isn't that what hollywood keeps telling us? That their movies are more than just entertainment? That they're meant to enlighten, to educate, that they all have a message that society needs to listen to?

    Enjoyed the sarcasm. lol
    Sorry there isn't a film Hollywood has ever produced that's enlightened or educated me and probably like you I find it tough to contemplate anyone dimwitted enough to be enlightened or educated by them. I guess they would feel that way because the average Hollywood actor is as dumb as a sack of hammers.

    If I want to be educated and enlightened I'll go watch a documentary or something by the NFB (National Film Board of Canada).

    Let's see: poverty-stricken slums, and a place where people have everything and want to keep it that way. Oh, no, this COULDN'T be a plug for letting in all the immigrants and "redeeming the land" for a new Aztec Empire. Could it?

    And if you believe that, I have a partnership stake in a bridge spanning the East River in New York, that I would like to offer for sale.

    I think both sides can be pretty violent. Obama didn't put us into the nightmare we are living in alone.
