The Giver: A Moving Pro-Liberty Movie

Sarah Palin says this is a MUST SEE movie that “conveys critical truths about our culture and a message Ronald Reagan would approve of.”

  1. When did Sarah become Roger Ebert?

    Perception vs. reality. Just like that horrible disappointment, The Matrix, also by the Weinstein brothers. Well, the first Matrix was a classic. Maybe if this film doesn’t get sequeled, it’ll be okay.

    Aren’t the Weinsteins known wacko Progressives? or just wacko? One more than the other brother, IIRC. I’ve heard bad and good things about this film. Thanks for the trailers. I’m wary. Don’t plan to contribute to their coffers at the theaters, in any case.

    Streep’s character: “When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong.”

    I seem to remember Jugears saying, “people can’t be trusted to make good choices” or something like that, but it’s not an easy phrase to search out. Jugears told the governors he doesn’t trust them; Piers Morgan said people can’t be trusted to make our own dietary decisions; stuff like that kept coming up on searching. 😀

      But the point of the book at least, is fighting against the mindset of Streep’s character. I read it when my son had to read it for English in the 7th grade, back in 1996 or 97. The way I remember it, they had tried to set up a utopia – a hopey, changey kind of utopia. The main character balks the whole way through the story. The book really made the kids think. Me, too, for that matter. But I really don’t have time to watch movies anymore, so I doubt I will go see it.

      If I understood Palin’s post correctly, she saw the film and reviewed it on her new t.v. station. Like Ting, I read the book and got the same message.

      As for who made it … the individual rebel fighting against the big powers is a major theme in modern literature and film. I believe the Lefties in the entertainment industry have two things going on … one, they don’t get it that they have BECOME the big powers cuz they’re really that stupid; two, money, money, money.

      Did you see O’Keefe’s expose of anti-fracking movie honchos happily taking money off an alleged Saudi prince who TOLD them his family wanted to keep America from producing oil so his family could keep making the big bucks selling it to us? They were FINE with it. DID NOT CARE. “Just give us the money. We’ll make the film and keep your part in it all hush hush.” Flipping hypocrites.
