Ok, it won big at the Golden Globes and it is making at ton of money, but isn't anybody a bit disturbed about the success of a movie that propagates such an anti-human perspective?
I like a good story and all, but I also am a fan of humanity. If I see a movie and it's aliens vs. humans, I'm rooting for the humans. Sorry, that's just the policy of Libertas et Memoria. If the movie is humans vs. apes, I'm rooting for the humans. Nothing against apes, but I'm going to root for the humans. Now, if the movie was apes vs. aliens, I'm going to root for the apes. My default position, in the absence of humans, is to root for the Earth-team. So, if we ever see the movie Dolphin vs. Predator, I'm cheering for the dolphin. But if it's humans vs. aliens, I'm cheering on the humans. What about humans vs. orcs, you say? I'm on the side of the humans. And that goes for wood elves, replicants, Cyclons, whatever. If it's somebody else vs. humanity, I want the humans to win.
Flipper vs. Gilligan? I say: Gilligan omnia vincit!
