LA Times "Movie" Critic: Terminator Dark Fate is Great Because There's Gender and Race Parity and They Speak Spanish and Because The Movie Hates Trump's Immigration Policy

This piece of shit, despite all the pandering to #Woke feminist/pro-trans movie critics, is just barley above the 65% "fresh" line on Rotten Tomatoes.

How low would it be if movie reviewers actually reviewed movies, rather than just reporting whether or not a movie flatters your pre-conceived political biases?

Look at this positive review from this joker at the LA Times:

Like a lot of recent Hollywood franchise extensions, this one views the entertainment industry's ongoing push for gender parity and racial equity as less a restriction than an opportunity, a chance to reenergize an old formula with fresh ingredients.

It's fun to watch Schwarzenegger play backup to three formidable women-- each one hailing from a different "Terminator" time frame, and one of them a Latina who represents the gravest possible threat to our fascist future.

It's also refreshing to see the series engage in a bit of self-critique, establishing that Dani is powerful -- and interesting -- for reasons that go beyond what might someday issue forth from her womb.

Wammen are (fierce fingersnaps) more than their genitals!

Except when feminists want to be nothing but their genitals.

Don't try to understand it, Oppressor.

In time, the action shifts to a train carrying Mexican sojourners toward the border with Texas, with a crucial stopover at a detention center where Grace pointedly identifies her fellow detainees as "prisoners" -- and then does precisely what a hero would do in that particular situation.

I don't mean to oversell the political subversiveness of "Terminator: Dark Fate," whose real-world reference points are nothing if not calculated -- which doesn't, of course, make them any less meaningful or sincere. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to revitalize a dead intellectual property. Sometimes all it takes is a movie in which "Hasta la vista, baby" isn't the extent of the characters' Spanish.

We're now saying "all it takes" to give a movie a positive rating is to have an actress speak Spanish?!?

Wow. That's pretty much admitting the game right there, isn't it?

So the Xerminator, also known as LGBT-1000, is exactly what you thought it was -- #Woke crap produced for an audience that doesn't like science fiction or action, but hates the idea that heterosexual men are enjoying something that they're "excluded" from.

I imagine this review is based more on the actual movie than on virtue signalling to #Woke Twitter NPCs:

Despite being the sixth installment of a franchise that hasn't really been relevant since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Tim Miller's competent but coma-inducing "Terminator: Dark Fate" has no reason to feel this far past its expiration date. In a studio age of intellectual property where nostalgia and innovation are tugging us so hard in either direction that it doesn't seem to matter what happens right here, nothing this side of a "live-action" Disney remake could possibly be more "now" than an unsolicited $150 million sequel in which the present is literally reduced to a turf war between the past and the future.

And "Dark Fate" does everything in its power to embrace the 2019 of it all; from its self-congratulatory emphasis on strong female characters and (far more graceful) focus on people of color, to its pandering fan service and soul-numbing parade of weightless special effects, this isn't just another mega-budget "requel" that nobody asked for, it's all of them.

And even though it's overall very negative, that review still has to give Dark Fate #Woke points for Hispanic Reparations.

Below, a couple of vids. First, Dave Cullen points out some curious repeated language from the #Woke critics trying to give this newest #Woke bomb a push, and then, Critical Drinker's old but still funny reviews of this plop's trailers.

Meanwhile, the #Woke series Batwoman continues to lose viewers -- getting down to the felt here -- and therefore the #Woke shill media has to again blame "Toxic Fans" for not showing up to their propaganda sessions as scheduled.

I can't wait until all of these #Woke things go bankrupt already.
