Batman - Earth 1 preview

Sometimes writers or directors will slip a social/political message into the theme of the story. Sometimes it’s subtle. Sometimes it’s a blunt object the size of the Death Star. And then there are those times where we hunt for a political message in the movie (either to condemn the movie for disagreeing with us and thus we can hate it, or agree with us so we can tell the other side “this proves you’re a doody-head”, and both wings of the politics bird does both) when it just isn’t there, even in this highly political time we’re forced to live in. I remember bringing this up when it came to Disney’s Ratatouille some years ago when that became a discussion topic. And I wasn’t even on Twitter at the time. Instead of my usual article link I’m going with this video by Bob “MovieBob” Chipman which examines how this can go too far to even just be having fun with the idea. And as a reminder, Chimpman and I fly on different sides of the bird. Also, I’m afraid of heights, but I think I just overdid the metaphor. WARNING: Video autoplays.
