Sadly, we live in an era where politics has infested just about everything. 25 years ago, politics was just about politics, and political discussion stated in its own lane. Today, everything is about politics. Financial advice is about politics. Dating and relationship advice is about politics. Cooking shows are about politics. Friggin’ sports are about politics. And of course, movies are about politics.
This infestation of viewing everything from a political lens is making a lot of people say very stupid things. Recently we’ve seen a stark example of this regarding two movies two movies in particular, Black Panther and Death Wish. I’ve seen both movies. Both movies are okay. Not great, but okay. They’re decently crafted, reasonably entertaining movies without being anything special.
