How do you have time for that outrage garbage? Seriously dude.

I can tell everything I need to know about that dude droning on and on by the comments:

Oh, what another leftist propaganda film from Hollywood, the land of sexual harassment and pedophiles? How could that possibly be? Let's see, whites are evil, down with Trump, America is awful, down with conservatives, blacks are awesome. I think that covers it. Thanks for the analysis Devon, I wouldn't be able to watch excrement like this.
Motherfuckers aren't even watching the movie, they're watching this dude make money by talking about the movie they haven't watched. Dude goes painstakingly through scene by scene trying to find outrage? I bet he calls other people snowflakes and yet here he is "oh this white character was a jerk" OMG they had an Indian brown Doctor! The FUCKING HORROR. Oh no, she's a single Mom, why can't a WHITE MALE be the hero? Good fucking christ dude. Talk about propaganda. Hell this guy has a Pizzagate video up, talking about all the pedo orgies in the basement of a pizzeria outside of DC, a pizzeria that doesn't have a basement...

That's just the first page out of almost 4,000 comments.

The movie is based off a 2014 book written by a white dude rock musician from Michigan who pretty much wrote it on his tour bus.

The wife and I actually watched it. We really enjoyed it. It was suspenseful and filmed well with proper back and forth storytelling. I don't even think she disliked me even a smidge from watching it together.

Haters are gonna hate, no matter what...

Well-made, suspenseful thriller, kind of reminded me of "A Quiet Place".

An Indian doctor ?! Yeah, those are very rare. Lol (try finding a doctor in a VA hospital who is NOT Indian. Lol).

Oh, and the "basement" probably a secret entrance. (The whole pizza gate thing while out there, would not actually surprise me if was real.

I’m along the same lines as KidA.

No Spoilers, but discussing a few characters
















“The Black Hero Guy” is a pretty solid character(and well acted) in the film.

I found his race irrelevant, but his backstory as a Veteran highly relevant, at least to me.

It’s nice to see an example of a Veteran portrayed as repeatedly doing the right thing instead of being the bad guy or helpless/broken/untrustworthy from having “Hollywood PTSD”.

“Middle Aged White Asshole Guy” was also a pretty solid character, especially since it was John Malkovich portraying him and I’m a middle aged white asshole.

Zombie stuff has jumped the shark, this film put a bit of a different twist on apocalypse porn.

Decent flick.

Sandra Bullock is still super duper bangable.

This is supposedly the first time Netflix has shared user data on the film with over 45 million having viewed it.

Which is about 1/3 of all Netflix account holders.

Reminded me of "The Happening" but with a different protagonist and a better story. I liked it and also found it a bit metaphoric.

DD0311 is not wrong. But like my wife says if we ban every single thing from holly-weird that is leftist what would there be left? It was an entertaining movie and well acted. Sandra is a hot MILF.

He said it was leftist horseshit then provided a link to some boring dude whose followers consist of the KKK apparently.

So what leftist horseshit was in the movie that I'm missing? Because it wasn't all white guys?

I don't want to add spoilers here. For example single mom health care undertones with the hospital scenes. Stuff that is pretty much in every show made in this day and age. But no not having all white people has zero bearing on the liberal undertones. If someone had a problem with the cast not being all white that's just racist BS. IMO

Apologies though I could not watch the link DD posted it was blocked for me.

Left, right...liberal diberal, hibidy dibity doo.

Are There Titties?

....or, is it one of these: I am woman hear me roar, and maybe a passing shot of side boob (minus any nipple shots).

Other than that--if there's no guns, buildings being blown up, Navy SEALs with kick-ass tans and bulging muscles, Chuck Norris or titties. It's nothing more than a movie about a blindfolded woman and her shenanigans?

Close enough?

There's a lot of dying.

No titties that I recall. She's not even a very good person, just gets put in a hugely shitty situation.

I'm not seeing all the leftist propaganda but I'm not subscribed to snowflake youtube channels pointing it out for me.

I mean I see a bunch of hand wringing faggotry all over the place, constantly, but not in this movie. Seems most of the people mad about it (at least according to the comments on that YouTube video DD posted) are because a hero is a black guy and one of the white guys was an asshole. One of the other black guys was a worthless nerd who dies too.

But why? Is it because you're a crotchety old man? We need some context here!

KidA apparently doesn’t like his NPC programming being questioned. “Omg this YouTuber has KKK followers!”. Buuuuuuutttt, are they wrong? Lol.

It started out strong, then turned into watching paint dry, but blindfolded.
