Apparently some men have a problem with the new Mad Max movie
On the popular MRA site Return of Kings, vlogger Aaron Clarey opined that he’d been “tricked” into anticipating “what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda” that has “ruined and rewritten” the Mad Max franchise:
The truth is I’m angry about the extents Hollywood and the director of Fury Road went to trick me and other men into seeing this movie. Everything VISUALLY looks amazing. It looks like that action guy flick we’ve desperately been waiting for where it is one man with principles, standing against many with none.
Even though Hollywood has spent literally a full century making films that match that description, Clarey apparently was eager to add Fury Road to the pile. Though at first he was hyped about the films, Clarey wasn’t happy that:
Charlize Theron’s character barked orders to Mad Max.
Nobody barks orders to Mad Max.
And after learning that Miller had hired Eve Ensler, author of the Vagina Monologues, as a consultant, Clarey realized he’d been “duped”:
“I was forced to accept reality. Fury Road was not going to be a movie made for men. It was going to be a feminist piece of propaganda posing as a guy flick...
[F]eminism has infiltrated and co-opted Hollywood, ruining nearly every potentially-good action flick with a forced female character or an unnecessary romance sub-plot to eek [sic] out that extra 3 million in female attendees...
...Hollywood has [had] the audacity to remove the name sake of a movie franchise called MAD FREAKING MAX, and replace it with an impossible female character in an effort to kowtow to feminism.
