Woke Hollywood, Broke Hollywood (UPDATED)

Buzz Lightyear (voiced by the great Tim Allen, one of the few right-leaning stars in Hollywood) became an iconic character in the Toy Story series of films, but the new standalone Buzz Lightyear movie, with Buzz voiced by Chris Evans instead of Allen, has bombed at the box office, perhaps because it decided to go fully woke by prominently featuring a lesbian relationship. As Kyle Smith puts it, “today Hollywood’s message is, ‘Let us entertain you! But first, a brief lecture on what’s wrong with you, the audience . . .’”

The three largest grossing movies of the last 20 years are The Passion of the Christ, American Sniper, and, by the time it is done with its theatrical run, Top Gun: Maverick. (UPDATE: I got this claim from Rob Long, who knows a thing or two about Hollywood. He adds a qualification I forgot—these are the top three grossing movies that are not Marvel etc. superhero movies or SciFi spectaculars—which I maintain, in agreement with Martin Scorcese, are hardly movies at all. They are the Chinese food of movies—enjoyable while you are watching, but two hours after leaving the theater you can’t recall much about them.)


The left hated the first Top Gun in the mid-1980s, and here YouTube satirist @StevenVoiceOver wonders how the original Top Gun might have come out if today’s wokerati had been in charge of it then. The result is Bottom Gun. (Only 1:29 long.)
