Just watched RBG Movie...

... and I am so freaking motivated. If I didnt love lawyering before I sure do now. So inspirational; so mesmerizing... I may have gotten a little emotional but lets just blame it on the preggo hormones. Has anyone else watched it yet? Am I the only one having a serious Come-To-Jesus moment?

    This was my Sunday, pre-test activity. Perfect balance of taking my mind off things and motivating me for Monday! And I don't think you have to blame the emotions on preggo hormones... I maaaay have teared up a time or two.

    The movie was an interesting look into the career of one of America's most distinguished lawyers, but I think it could have been done without the partisan pandering to SJW's. The producers obviously knew their audience and gave them exactly what they wanted - validation of their liberal ideology and confirmation bias that conservatives are backwards, misogynist deplorables. I found the movie about as enjoyable as the September 2016 Eileen Gray reading comp passage.

    Disagree but ... mmkay. I will concur the Eileen Gray passage is THE single most boring thing I've read lol it's worst than watching the lacquer they keep bringing up in the passage dry.

    What is SJW?

    SJW = Social Justice Warrior. Ya know... the purple haired basement dwelling types that feel the need enact swift and violent social justice on anyone who believes differently than they do, all in the name of tolerance and progress. Real peachy, fascist types.

    And yes!! Skip Eileen Gray passage, preserve your sanity.

    Social justice warrior [Source: Wikipedia] (commonly abbreviated SJW) is a pejorative term for an individual who promotes socially progressive views, including feminism, civil rights, and multiculturalism, as well as identity politics.

    Fascism [source Merriam-Webster dictionary] :a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

    Wow, now I'm really excited about the movie. I've never seen someone attribute two totally diametrically opposite political / social philosophies to the same entity. That must be an exciting and groundbreaking piece of cinematic art. Please don't tell me there is anything intentionally inflammatory or hyperbolic in your description which might cause me to be disappointed...

    No; it's playing in select theaters nationwide. Here in Dallas it's playing in more 'boutique' movie houses.

    Speaking of Dallas where did you go to see it? I've never heard of either of these places lol. This movie sounds good so I might have to take a break and go check it out.

    They had it at the Alamo for a while, the Angelika and Magnolia Theaters. Now the only place left it's playing is the Magnolia on McKinney downtown. Go see it before they stop playing it too! :)
