HULK TALK PROPAGANDA FILMS!

February 24, 2012

HEY ALL!

HULK WAS GRACIOUSLY ASKED TO APPEAR ON THE GOLDEN BRIEFCASE PODCAST THIS WEEK WHERE WE EXPLORED THE CONCEPT OF PROPAGANDA FILMS AND THE LATEST ENTRY ACT OF VALOR. WE LOOK AT IT THROUGH THE LENS NOT JUST OF POLITICS AND WAR, BUT EVEN HOW THE IMPLICATION OF MINDSETS DOMINATES OUR SENSE OF THE WORLD AROUND US. EVEN RELATIONSHIPS! STUPID ROMANTIC COMEDIES!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! THERE PLENTY OF GREAT MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE AND ANATOMY OF A MURDER TALK AS WELL!

PLUS DON’T MISS WHEN HULK WATCHES THE WRONG TRAILER, AND ACTUALLY RECOMMENDS THE BRAZEN, GERMAN MASTERPIECE TAXI ZUM KLO! WHICH AN AMAZING FILM THAT HAPPENS TO HAVE HOURS OF GRAPHIC GAY SEX! EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS FOLKS!

EXCLAMATION POINTS!

    Ah, you must have been in the Bruce Banner form for the duration of this podcast, that explains the human voice I’m hearing instead of HULK DISAGREE WITH FILM’S UNENDING JINGOISM!

    I haven’t seen Act of Valor, but from what I’ve heard its a lot less “jingoist” (what an odd word…) than it originally would sound. Undoubtedly it’s propaganda, but as you guys say in the podcast, all movies are, in their way. Now I have to stress I have not seen it, but if it’s a fair portrayal of the Navy SEALS, their tactics and strategies and the way they operate, and doesn’t bog itself down into demonizing “the Other,” then I wouldn’t exactly have a problem with it, and it would just be a B movie with acting, SFX and story problems. That is, unless it fully delves into a COD attitude, I think it’s okay, just like I think rom-coms are okay…

    Heck, I don’t know. I guess I’m trying to say that there is a subsection of thought that ANY glorification of the military or, hell, even respect of what they do, is inherently jingoist and racist against the “enemy.” And I don’t want to be someone who automatically goes there. So being as I simply don’t have the expendable income to plop down on a film that would I would see mainly for an academic thought experiment, I wonder whether AOV is dehumanizing, or humanizing, as you guys point out.

    Your thoughts were interesting and well-formed as usual, Hulk. I would love to read more about conservative world view issues like fate that permeate film.

    I curse the podcast hosts though, for suggesting Grave Encounters was worth anyone’s time. The highlights are mediocre and the rest is amateur and boring.
