´The most tone deaf film of the year´: Bruce
Willis remake of Death Wish labeled ´racist
and ´alt-right inspired´ after dark trailer for
vigilante revenge movie is released

Daily Mail [UK], by Jessica Finn

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/4/2017 8:10:25 PM

The new Bruce Willis trailer for the remake of the 1974 flick, Death Wish, has been released and people are outraged over the violent vigilantism and rampant gun use. The ultra dark and hyper-violent tone of the trailer has Willis´ character Paul Kersey, whose family is shattered when his wife killed and his daughter viciously raped and paralyzed after a home burglary. He takes his revenge to the streets with an enormous arsenal of weapons. Movie critics and social media users commented on the tone deaf film. ´Pretty sure the NRA just found their next ad,´ wrote one Twitter user. ´Death Wish shouldn´t

Comments:
Riight. If those insane filthy social justice warriors had been around years ago none of the best movies would never have been made. I with they would just shut up and go away.

Far as I am concerned, Willis is the only actor around with the credibility to remake Bronson movies without making them seem limp wristed.

I would not expect the Leftists of Hollywood to see the correlation of these movies and what is happening in the world today. Culture/politics and movie making are very closely intertwined sometimes.

Don´t let Hollywood trick you with its publicity stunts. It will fabricate controversies to increase box office. Hollywood is built on make-believe, don´t forget. Making things up is what Hollywood does best.

The same studio that pitches movies to the conservative demographic will also make movies that pitch to the liberal demographic. They have their highly-paid tricksters working together to coordinate narratives that are solely designed to maximize profits.

There is no such thing as art for art´s sake in the major studios anymore.

This is not my cup of tea but don´t these same people just love Quentin Tarantino? His films are about as violent as it gets. The highly regarded Kill Bill movies, for example, were nothing but.

Sadly, more topical and relevant now than it was then. What´s funny is that the snowflakes seem to be more upset about a fiction film than they are about weekly Chicago reality. I guess it depends on who´s doing the shooting.

Every Bruce Willis film is worth seeing. He is a superb actor.

That said, how many realize that the "Death Wish" and "Dirty Harry" series were almost solely responsible for a significant change away from judicial liberalism in the 1970s? Judges and Parole Boards had been emptying jails of violent criminals and plopping them back on the streets where they committed more violent crimes. The movies came out and told the stinking Judges we were ready to invoke vigilante justice, and people loved it... and that was well before Concealed Carry laws were available too.

If Willis wipes out a bunch of street vermin, I´m all for or it.

PEOPLE - The writer and one other person.

VIOLENT - Yup.

VIGILANTISM - I thought so too.

GUN USE - A gun is a tool, and so is a hammer.

The original was a disappointment to me. Body count was only a handful, and the bad guys were so easy to hate, killing was too good for them.
All those old Golan Globus movies were dumb, but fun. Good guys win with firepower, bad guys obviously evil. Horrible writing, impossible shots (remember Death Wish 3?)and a great time was had by all.
The libbies are free to watch climate change movies if they want.

Sounds like a Winner. (That´s a pun.) The dialogue can be classic. There were five Bronson Death Wish movies. All were entertaining. The third might have been the most ridiculous, a bloodbath, but when Kersey is around that stuff is shed by the bucket. No, by the barrel. Maybe Led Zeppelin´s Jimmy Page will do the soundtrack again--he did 2 and 3 before. Some famous actors like Laurence Fishburn were dispatched to hell by Kersey--Fishburne took a bullet through a boombox into his head. Maxwell´s Silver Hammer.

Paul Kersey Death Wish 3: "It´s like killing roaches - you have to kill ´em all, otherwise what´s the use?"

Kathryn Davis (Kersey´s love interest, always about to die in this movie franchise): "I hope you like chicken. It´s the only thing I know how to make."
Paul Kersey: "Chicken´s good. I like chicken." And

Tulio: "They killed the Giggler, man! (yells) THEY KILLED THE GIGGLER!!"
Mandy Fraker, gang leader: "They had no business doing that. None.

I hope the screenwriters did their job well. You know Bruce Willis will. But there was only one Charles Bronson.

Slightly off topic, but I´m posting it anyway. Sue me.

A few decades ago, a buddy of mine went out as a single (golfer) at Rancho Park in LA. (Aside: Palmer took a 12 out there in a tournament one year when the PGA Your played there.) A guy walked over and asked if he could join him. Charles Bronson. My friend was speechless, called him Mr. Bronson. Bronson replied "Call me Chuck". They played the round and my friend said he was the nicest guy you´d ever want to meet.

Count me old school about remakes.
Death Wish: Bronson
Die Hard: Willis
Dirty Harry: Eastwood
Bond: Well, that´s another kettle of fish
Watched the orginals many times. A boatload of memorable dialog. Can´t be improved. I think the Hollywood thinking is that most youngsters never saw the originals.
Can I get you something? Cup of coffee? A warrant?
Is this supposed to come off? Uh, no, but they´re a lot more valuable when they´re broken...

Instead Mr. Franken, a comic-turned-politician, is angling to be a voice of the progressive movement and to ascend the halls of power on the other end of Pennsylvania Ave. at the Capitol. “He isn’t running for president, but he is running to be one of the dominant progressive voices in D.C. — vying with [Sens.

Lee, who is Asian-American, and who is likely not named after the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee, is one of ESPNU´s biggest names, and, for the record, did not fight in the American Civil War, because he wasn´t alive in 1861 (though he is nicknamed, "the General").

“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Flake slammed the idea of potentially cutting legal immigration levels in half to raise the wages of American workers and end the current low-skilled oriented system to make only admit immigrants based on their skills and merit in a New York Times op-ed. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the specific plan, known as the “RAISE Act.” President Donald Trump endorsed the plan and said the legislation “will reduce poverty, increase

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

Black Lives Matter activist Chanelle Helm released a list of “requests” to white people in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month. Helm, the so-called “cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville,” explained in an article published at Leoweekly.com the things she says need to “change.” “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty,” Helm writes in an article titled “White people, here are 10 requests from a Black Lives Matter leader.” White people are asked, “Give up the

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday gave a strong endorsement to the movement for removing monuments to leaders of the Confederacy and called for the electoral college to be abolished. Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go. Calling for the audience to repeat, he said, “Say the monuments and the flags

WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

A Texas college campus removed four statues of prominent Confederate figures in an overnight sweep, according to reports. The statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee, Gen.

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had

Students at Howard University, a top-rated historically black college in Washington D.C., took to social media to express their anger over a group of white high school girls wearing pro-Trump clothing who visited the campus on Saturday. Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
