Got this film review from Ruddy Adam. Enjoy!
Writing this because of a request from someone who had lost theirs. A little review and reminder of how sneaky Snakewood works never hurts. Don’t forget: Every instant you’re watching one of their films, they have you sitting in a satanic propaganda chamber. KNOW THIS BEFOREHAND—AND understand what they’re trying to do to you, and that way it will not stick.
Remember: Those separated by the Lord’s Logos (the Separate-Ones) can walk anywhere and not be affected negatively, as far as their trust in Khrist goes. However, negative, cynical stories filled with filth of every imaginable kind do affect your brain in a negative way. Make sure you don’t like those reptilian monsters flood your brain with those things—without afterwards cleansing it with the Divine Logos.
Review of the Anti-Khristian, Anti-Southern Film, Forrest Gump
“Hello, my name is Forrest, Forrest Gump,” drawls actor Tom Hanks as the 1994 movie, Forrest Gump, begins. The movie arrived at theaters with enough positive propaganda from the media to assure a hit. Less than a year later and already having surpassed all others in gross sales ($660 million!), Forrest Gump should easily remain the century’s most popular film.
But like the cunning seductress who shows but a scant bit of ankle to snare her unsuspecting target, it is the most subtly, seductive anti-Khristian and anti-southern movie Hollywood has ever created. Of course, how could it be otherwise, with Khrist’s move virulent enemies in complete charge? Eric Roth wrote the screenplay, with Wendy Finerman, Steven Tisch, and Steve Starkey producing. At the behind-the-scenes financial helm was multi-billionaire Sumner Redstone (real name: Sumner Rothstein), chairman of Viacom, Inc., parent company of Paramount Pictures, the distributor of the film.
These people are extremely smart. And so, they fooled many, who actually think that the movie honors what is morally right. Even Pat Buchanan, who usually has good insight into what the elitist left is doing, wrote that “Forrest Gump is a conscious move to the right by Hollywood, and is thus a good, wholesome, conservative movie.”
Pat totally misses the theme behind the plot of a film about an idiot from the South who will not lie, cheat, or steal; who does not lust after women or money; who serves his country in war; who basically does everything the system wants him to; who makes a fortune and then gives it away; who always seems to get treated terribly by “normal people,” yet never complains. Pat should know that these elitist, Snakewood moguls would think anyone who has such character is a fool. They would never approve; they have nothing but scorn for such people. Their favorite verb is complain. Their heroes are the Abbie Hoffmans of the world–those who rebel against virtue, who reject traditional morals, who think Khristian ethics belong to a prehistoric age, who think the state should rule in every segment of existence except sex, film, literature, and drugs.
At the academy awards, snake director Robert Zemeckis accepted his award defiantly. He made sure in his speech that fellow leftist friends did not think he had deserted their beliefs, when he stated that critics had wrongly “interpreted Forrest Gump as promoting traditional values. It does quite the contrary,” he said.
Tom Hanks won his second academy award for the lead role. He also, as the character Forrest Gump, narrates the movie. As an ostensible southerner, his accent is better than the average Snakewood Yankee actor’s, who has never been south of Jersey, except to jog to the end of the boardwalk, but his accent still falls far short. Hank’s narration throughout is typical of his character; but as the movie progresses, Forrest Gump actually becomes smarter, more sensitive, especially to the hot issues of the day: AIDS, miscegenation (interracial marriages), the freaks, the abused. Forrest, with an IQ of 75, just naturally understands that he should be sensitive to these humanistic issues.
The plot (the story line) of the movie is somewhat complicated to describe. It is probably a love story more than anything. And so, the director uses every trick, dragging the story out over a generation, to bring the audience to the peak of each new emotional feeling. There are deaths of good friends, parents, and lovers. There are partings of good friends, parents, and lovers. There are triumphs over great adversities. If any emotional buttons remain, I promise you the movie presses them.
The director wants you to sympathize with, but not pity, Forrest. For he, like anyone with a very low IQ, shows little emotion. He is in fact quite stoic most of the time, although he is capable of expressing joy and sadness and even rage at times. But there is more to Forrest. He is a chivalrous savior. For every time he runs into the love of his life, Jenny (played by Robin Wright), he rescues her from “normal people” who, always treat all people terribly, by exploiting them. He begins by rescuing her from, you should have guessed, her father. Forrest is also Rocky the underdog, who overcomes adversity–except Forrest overcomes effortlessly. No one beats Forrest to a pulp.
From Greenbow, Alabama, Forrest Gump is a southern boy, the scope of whose mind is about the same as the circumference of a dime. Thus is the foundation of the plot of one movie that not only never misses a chance to cast an emotional pitch, but also displays every possible dreamed up politically correct form of “abuse and exploitation” even when they do not fit the plot. Jenny’s father, for example, is a white, southern drunk, who sexually abuses her–along with the rest of the family. Forrest’s father deserts his mother and him. The school principal exploits Forrest’s mother, played by Sally Field, by having sex with her in exchange for allowing Forrest to go to “normal school.” And always, at all times, Forrest is exploited by mean males, mostly White ones: mean, old, White men at the barber shop, mean White football coaches, mean White school mates, mean White (and Black) Army buddies, and other types of pond scum throughout.
The following dialogue is indicative of how an innocent scene can turn into–ahhh!–the male exploiter exploiting the defenseless female. And how easy people sell their morals in exchange for what they want.
“Your boy,” the grammar school principal states quite concernedly to Forrest’s mother, “is different, Mrs. Gump. His IQ is 75. And the state requires a minimum IQ of 80 to attend public school, Mrs. Gump. He’s gonna have to attend a special school.” But Sally Field wants him in public school, so that “he can get the same education as everyone else.”
Undeterred by the principal’s revelation of Forrest’s mental deficiency, she ponders audibly that there must be some way to work things out. And alas, there is: to have sex with the principal; she does so, with the principal being well-pleased, resulting in little Forrest heading off to school on the public school bus, uttering one of his mother’s pithy warnings to the driver after she opens the bus doors and asks “Are you coming along?”: “Mama says not to be taking rides from strangers.” “This is the bus to school,” the driver explains in a tone that shows she can hardly stand having to explain such an obvious fact. “Well now we ain’t strangers anymore,” Forrest says after he and the driver introduce themselves to each other; he then steps onto the bus, only to receive more abuse from “normal people.” And so, the plot of Forrest IQ-of-75 Gump conquering the world–thus begins.
The theme (the message behind the plot) is very complicated to explain and very subtle to see. We might start by saying that the writer and director intend to make fools out of us all in the slyest way. The theme knocks the Army, Southern Colleges, Khristianity, traditional morals, the South, the entertainment world. But not overtly.
You must catch the irony to understand the theme. But the central theme is eastern humanism, which inculcates the following message: There is innate good in every human being, except White Khristians, and there are numerous routes to God and heaven. But let me try to explain by going over a few parts of the film.
Making Fools of Us All
As a child, Forrest meets Elvis and shows him how to wiggle his hips when he plays his guitar. After serving in Vietnam, Forrest appears on the Dick Cavett show, along with John Lennon, whom he gives the words to the Beattle song Imagine (which is the all-time favorite theme song for all Marxists, because it indeed glorifies Marx’s dream of a secular, borderless, world where all are one). The theme is, any idiot could have jiggled as Elvis did and written lyrics as John Lennon did.
Forrest is such a fast runner that Bear Bryant wants him at Alabama to play football. Naturally, he passes his classes, makes All-American, and graduates, then gets to meet President Kennedy. The coaches know Forrest is dumb, but so what? They simply wish to exploit his athletic ability. They are Southern bigots–racists to the core. (The movie leaves out the fact that Bear Bryant was the first SEC coach to allow Blacks to play; of course we know he was just exploiting their athletic abilities.)
Let us give notice here: There are two types of people in the movie: the exploited and the exploiter. Nearly everyone in this movie except for Forrest exploits everybody and anybody.
Robin Wright as Jenny is the most interesting character in the movie. Jenny is a lost soul exploited from birth by family, friends, boyfriends, bosses, lovers, the family dog, you name it. Rebelling, obviously because of her terrible childhood (Freud is grateful for the thought! Our childhood environment controls our entire lives, according to that snake atheist.), she lives the ’60s to the hilt: protesting the war, loving freely, staying drugged out, living in California, the works.
After settling down in Savannah some time in the 1980s, and after having run from Forrest for 20 years, Jenny sends him a letter to come see her. She wants him to see his son, little Forrest, who just happens to be smarter than Isaac Newton–a slight knock upon genetic science. Shortly after marrying Forrest, Jenny dies with a virus curiously similar to AIDS, but the movie does not call it that. The point is for us to get the idea that heterosexuals get AIDS just as homosexuals. Which is absolutely not true.
Using a cunning method to show that any idiot can excel in the Armed Forces, the movie has Forrest join the Army–where he excels–saves most of his unit in Vietnam (Mind you without killing a soul! All peaceniks cheer please.)–wins the Congressional Medal of Honor!–then takes up ping pong, becomes a champion, and represents his country against China. All with an IQ well below average. I mean this character is so dumb he thinks “Charlie” (US Military slang for the Viet Cong) is a specific person instead of the entire Viet Cong Army! He thinks because they call Elvis, the king, that he is really a king. When a lowdown, dirty, White southern bigot calls Blacks who are trying to enter Alabama, coons, Forrest thinks he is talking about the animal by the same name.
Forrest himself is not even smart enough to tell the difference between the races. So as hero of the movie, he has no racial prejudices. This is supposed to show us that even idiots are not prejudiced. Thus, anyone who is, must be even more of a troglodyte than Forrest. It is the unrealistic, leftist utopia that people such as John Lennon enjoy dreaming and even singing of. And Forrest is undoubtedly supposed to fulfill the dream in Imagine. “Imagine if there were no religions. Imagine if there were no possessions. Imagine if you can. . .” Forrest lives out the dream of Imagine right on the screen. Quite ignorant of what is going on there, Forrest goes to church, but he has no specific religion. He seeks no possessions. He has no bent toward anything, except of course helping his fellow-man. He instinctively knows that all forms of humanism are right. Forrest Gump is humanism’s ensign.
Hailing Humanism and Eastern Occultism
Forrest announces he is going to heaven, even though the audience already knows it, because the movie implies that you can be good morally, believe in God (or not)–but not Khrist–yet still qualify for heaven; these are the very characteristics Forrest has, and they are the tickets to humanist heaven. When asked by his army lieutenant, lieutenant Dan (played by Gary Sinise), in the most scornful way whether he had found Jes. .us, Forrest replies by saying he did not know he was supposed to be seeking Him. Yet throughout the movie Forrest and others repeat the god-term, but never do they invoke Khrist. That word in a positive manner Snakewood will not tolerate. “Lieutenant Dan,” Forrest reflects, “made his peace with God.”
The movie’s makers obviously know that Khristians believe that any route to God besides the one that goes directly through Khrist leads to the fiery pit. Theirs is the eastern view, which new-agers endorse, that there are many routes to God. Khrist, however, may or may not be one. Such a view is inherently anti-Khristian.
Like the cock who thought the sun rose to hear him crow, the arrogant script writers force upon the audience an assortment of pithy, humanistic sayings, and so Forrest, without any form of reasoning whatever, simply recites them throughout the film in answer to questions from people. Here are eight of them:
- “Mama always said there’s an awful lot you can tell about a person by their shoes, where they’re going, where they’ve been.”
- “Mama says life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get.”
- “Mama says there’s only so much fortune a man really needs–and the rest–is just for showing off.”
- “Mama says stupid is as stupid does.”
- “Mama says God is mysterious.”
- “Mama says dying is part of living.”
- “Mama says miracles happen every day.”
- Sally Field to Forrest: “If God intended everybody to be the same, He’d have given everybody braces on their legs.”
And so it goes, one humanistic foray after another, with everyone selling out traditional morals for materialism. Even Forrest’s mother. Until, in the end, he (an idiot) is the only person in the film without a broken moral compass. (Catch the irony?) As the movie’s propaganda has said of Forrest: “He knows in his heart what his mind cannot tell him.” We are to believe from such statements that there is an inherent good in all humanity–all humans are naturally virtuous; it is society (either capitalism or Khristianity) that forces them to go astray. Again, as always, such concepts oppose Divine Scripture. Note the following:
And the Ever-Living said in His heart: “I shall never again curse the ground because of Adamic man, though the purpose in his heart from childhood is to do evil.”
This Scripture above all contradicts the humanist, eastern view that there is innate good within all humans. No, Khrist must place that good into people. Otherwise, the things they do are for themselves not others. Even their humanistic endeavors are to satisfy their own feelings of guilt. When one understands Khrist, He removes all guilt from our minds. We therefore do what is right—worship Him and Him alone; trust in Him and Him alone—because that is all we must do as His followers. This is not to say that we ought not help others—but we do not do it because of a guilty conscience or to show off. Khristians are encouraged to help others in the faith—and that is part of their duty as Khristians. Going out and helping others just for the sake of helping them is not encouraged—in any Scripture.
The above Scripture is also important for those who are raising children. They must understand that their children need guidance from the beginning. No one is like Forrest Gump. For without the least bit of training or guidance and not being able to reason at all, Forrest is supposed to have in his heart all the virtues of self-sacrifice, forgiveness, love, kindness, patience, high-moral character, and chivalry. Nonsense! Every human without the knowledge and understanding of Khrist and what He has accomplished for us is a self-centered pig. And even those with knowledge and understanding revert and desert when they dwell in the evil kosmos without afterwards bathing themselves in God’s Message.
Just in case there is anyone out there in boom boom land who has not seen the movie, do not expect our little analysis to have covered the movie, which is nearly three hours long. As far as being entertaining, you can enjoy the music, the scenery, the acting, the creative photography, the comedy (mostly irony); but keep in mind that the underlying purpose of the film is to brainwash and denigrate, because Snakewood believes the theme of a movie must send a societal message. And their message is always Marxist—which is anti-Adamic and anti-Khristian. They will not make a movie that does not have an underlying message. And—as noted—their messages are always anti-Khristian. Understand this fact beforehand and you can enjoy the film without it affecting you.
Promotes race-mixing, humanism, Eastern Religions, promiscuity, is very anti-Southern.
