    Gee, I wasn’t aware that the “message we really need right now” is more politically correct ignorance of ethnocentric, cultural reality. Like, you know, all cultures are completely the same, and only a bad person notices the differences, and when the differences are too great to be ignored, we blame the differences on ‘racism,’ or ‘bigotry,’ etc.

    I’d love to see a movie – not animated – where we accept the reality that ‘diversity’ and ‘multiculturalism’ are PROBLEMS that must be overcome to accomplish any semblance of UNITY. There must be a common language, common religion/culture, and defensible borders. The borders are there primarily to prevent invasion from those who refuse to join the culture they are invading. The old idea of the ‘melting pot’ is a good example of trying to do it right. You slowly add people to the culture in accordance with your ability to assimilate them, and their willingness to assimilate.

    Or we can keep doing what we are doing now – ignore reality, and insult people who see the reality and pretend those who see reality are the problem.

    Zootopia is another propaganda indoctrination attempt, once again directed at children.

      When I saw all of the glowing reviews of this film, I had my Samuel Clemens moment, “When you find yourself in the majority, you need to question yourself.” Multiculturalism, indeed, is an elitist tool to continue their divide and conquer ways of controlling societies in hopes of one world governance. This film does not disappoint in this endeavor. I am optimistic, though, as Buckminster Fuller had forecasted decades ago that a more peaceful society will come out of the ashes of control. That this forced propaganda will backfire and the non-aggressive principle will prevail, eliminating most borders and the need to be governed by the behemoth octopus we have now. Have gold, have silver, have faith…

    My earlier joe-tweaking aside, this was indeed an awesome movie. Captivating visuals, fun characters, decent story line, and a timeless message. Totally worth seeing for adults and kids!

      Way to go, starting a comment with an insult.
      Did you even see the movie?

    2. 1.2


      Ah, wow, thanks, Joe! I was planning on seeing the film, but now given erudite commentary, I’m gonna totally pass on it!

      I am now gonna speed AWAY from the bovine excrement, and instead will revel in totally awesome movies with no message, no coherent plot, and actually no redeeming value whatsoever. London has Fallen, here I come!
