Don't ask how I found it. Just look at http://www.etext.org/Politics/MIM/movies/ . The sad part is ... they're serious.

Some excerpts ...

A Bug's Life

Amerikan imperialism has always cloaked itself in the rhetoric of freedom and the struggle against oppression, while actually denying the broad masses any true freedom and oppressing entire peoples around the globe. So very few audiences will recognize themselves or their government in the grasshoppers of "A Bug's Life" and take home the lesson that they should be fighting against Amerikan imperialism.

Men in Black

The Men in Black consider themselves "above the system," and indeed they are in this movie fantasy of the aspiring intergalactic bourgeoisie which long ago went beyond petty national conflicts like that seen at the Mexican border. The Men in Black want their rule to appear "neutral" and beneficial to humyn-kind, as if it were possible for a state to be class-neutral.

Spiderman

Peter Parker said "With great power comes great responsibility." The great power he refers to is his Spider-power. MIM would take this quote and apply it to the power of the people to end hunger, stop deaths from preventable diseases, end wars, stop the destruction of the environment, and build a world where no group of people has power over other groups. All individuals have the power to take up this fight, and particularly here in the imperialist countries where we benefit from this suffering around the world, we have a responsibility to do so.

Thanks, bturk - actually, I typed a coherent sentence into the Bolshevik Language Translator at babelfish, and that's what came out.

You mean you're cheating? Is this how you're coming up with your awesome poetry?
Thanks, I think. I sat through too many poli sci classes and read too many Burke treatises and Roosevelt (let me be clear - Theodore) speeches. Now when I type, all that comes out is this damned purple prose!

misquote

They (the movie people mentioned) say that Peter Parker said "with great power comes great responsibility". If my clouded memory serves me right, I do believe it was Aunt May that told Peter.

And even if Dan has way to much time on his hands, the people that run that site have ALOT more time on their hands and what's up with their spelling anyway???

I think they need to scrape their resin buildup..........they're just MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!
