Here is the next trailer:
Eat Your Art Out,
The Fine Art Diner
|The Democrats, Progressives, Left and liberals would tell us that these two men--by virtue of their racial identities from birth--hate each other and that the white guy (Zac Effron, right) is oppressing the Oceanic-black man on the left (Dwayne Johnson). In a way, we see Mitch Buchanan (Johnson) oppressing Brody (Effron): Brody wants on the Baywatch team, and Mitch won't let him. It's only through a reversed "affirmative action" that Brody gets to be a lifeguard (the head of Baywatch telling Mitch that Brody would be good PR because he has two gold medals; companies and universities use affirmative action as "good PR" which is why nothing works right nowadays and people have become so lazy). In a capitalist sense, we can see a more hopeful picture: Baywatch is Brody's second chance (the way Dom and his team get a "second chance" in the Fast and Furious franchise, or Batman gets a second chance to make up to dead Superman in Justice League, so second chances are good). In this particular scene pictured above, I have no idea what is going on, however, Mitch--because he is not wearing a shirt--"exposes" himself to the events taking place (that's what nudity symbolizes, "exposure") whereas Brody, wearing the blue shirt, is keeping himself protected (not naked and exposed) because past experience has taught him the price to be paid for participating in this kind of event (whatever it is taking place in this scene); why? We know that blue, the color of Brody's shirt, symbolizes sadness and wisdom (don't forget that Brody refers to his "balls" as "wise" even though they sound like three-year-old girls) and we know that Brody needs a job as a lifeguard because, even though he won two Olympic gold medals, something has happened and he's officially "disgraced" (more on this below). Whatever happened to cause Brody's fall from favor, he's taking precautions so it doesn't happen again (that doesn't mean he's taking the right precautions, or going about it in the right way, but he's trying). Note, also, how he holds onto his flotation device: that would be a "personal statement," in that Brody feels he needs the "flotation" for himself during this situation to help him get through it because he's afraid of drowning in whatever is taking place. Mitch, on the other hand, literally, is wearing that huge wristwatch, and that means he has a sense of history, of what the Baywatch brand really "is" and "means" and how he fits into it and what is expected of him to maintain and uphold that.|
We still don't give a fuck
|We should probably pay attention for a lot of other films to be referenced; why? Because Baywatch is going to want to link itself up in the public forum of cinematic discourse with films that have said the same things it's wanting to say: for example, The Kingsman: Secret Service. As Eggsy is trying to save the world from Valentine's explosion, Princess Tilde of Sweden offers herself for anal sex with Eggsy and he takes her up on it in exchange for saving her; Mitch, on the other hand, when the girl in the image above offers herself to him, shrugs it off, and--when he tosses her into the water away from the flaming ship--we see her bikini bottom is yellow; why? Yellow is the color of gold, which means it's the color of dignity, and because they are the bottoms covering her genitals, which she just offered to Mitch, we can deduce that Mitch has more respect for her sexual dignity than she does. In the image below, we can see the jump away from the flames possibly referencing that awesome film, Deepwater Horizon (Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovitch); why? I have no idea, but we do know that Deepwater Horizon was poorly managed, which led to the explosion, and it's possible the Baywatch division is being poorly managed as well. So, look for references being made to other films, because I'm sure it's going to be loaded.|
|Sure, it's probably really cheesy to have beautiful, healthy people running along a beach, for now reason; except there is a reason, and actually, there are two reasons. First, it's a reference to that classical Chariots Of Fire, the film following young men as they train for the Olympics and push themselves as to what they can accomplish when they put their minds--and bodies--to the job at hand. Baywatch wants us to be thinking about that as we watch the film, which is why it's reminding us of this famous scene. Secondly, which would you prefer to have: a world where people look like the five healthy, beautiful men and women from left to right, or a world where everyone looks like Ronnie (at the far right end, trying to keep up)? We discussed this with Zoolander 2, where someone was killing "the world's most beautiful people" and how it's like wealth redistribution: we think it would be nice not to have the most beautiful people in the world reminding us that we are not the most beautiful people, that they are instead, but it wouldn't take long before everyone in the world looked like Ronnie and we would be without the beautiful, healthy people we see in this image, that hating someone for the way they look is just as bad as hating someone for the wealth they have that we don't. But we also know that in this scene, Brody (Effron) trips and falls; why? Because he's human, too. Just like us, they have their faults and shortcomings, and they are going to get old, and they will age just like us, so we should be thankful that the standards they set for health and beauty "trickle down to" us, and we take some effort to take care of ourselves because of the standard we are fortunate enough to have in them, regardless of how out of each it is for most of us.|
|"You should look at my face instead of my boobs," Summer (Daddario) tells Brody, "But your boobs are so close to your face," and, actually, he's right. What is the first thing we notice about another person? Whether they are male, female, male and trying to look like a female, or female and trying to pass for a male; our sexual identity (her boobs) is an inherent part of our identity (the face) and Summer telling Brody he should only look at her face while she's wearing only a swim top accentuating her breasts, isn't Brody's fault, it's her fault, and that's exactly what feminists want, because it puts them in a position, just like Summer, of making heterosexual men look bad, when in fact, it's women like Summer who are intentionally tempting men with their immodest dressing.|
In the bottom image, we understand the "castration effect" spoken of below (after the next trailer): men with no balls don't stand up and protect anything or question anything, as we see with Brody; this is exactly the kind of men the liberals want in the world, not the Mitch Buchanans who will question everything and protect what they love at all costs. Now, if you think I'm making too much of this, I understand, but please consider that the villain, Victoria Leeds, is a drug dealer; what do drugs do? They alter reality, and what is the left trying to do? Alter reality. The left peddles drugs, so men will castrate themselves, women will be whores and we can all be miserable with just a few corrupt people ruling over us. What stops the altering of reality? Responsibility and sacrifice. When we take responsibility for what we have done, when we make sacrifices for that which we love, we are defying the left and their cheap tricks.
|The head of Baywatch asks Mitch, "How many gold medals do you have?" and Mitch doesn't have any, but that doesn't mean that Brody is qualified to be a lifeguard and we see that even in the trailers. On the other hand, we can see Mitch being too obsessive, and not allowing for a expansion of skills and talents.|
In the bottom image, the black cop has just used the phrase, "You people," and Brody reacts and Mitch tells him, "Oh, you can't say that. You're just tan." You might remember a similar scene in Zootopia, when Judy Hopps, a bunny, is told by Chester Cheetah that she's such a cute bunny, and Judy tells him that another bunny can call a bunny cute, but another animal can't say that; why not? Censorship of the freedom of speech and the ridiculous elevation of emotions and sensitivity; we have all experienced it, so I don't need to go into it.
|This quiz, linked below, will show you an image like this, and then you choose from four different films, which movie it's from. Good luck!|
|This image might be one of the most important we have seen in all the trailers, posters and spots combined; why? Arthur voices what his will is, "I'm going to kill him," but we see how he is wounded, and those wounds we are seeing articulate for us the interior of Arthur's character we cannot see. For example, the bandage wound atop Arthur's head likely has two meanings: first, we know that hair and anything on the head symbolizes our thoughts, so, in this scene, it's likely that Arthur has been proven wrong about something or he wasn't thinking correctly (maybe he had a bad idea). This is particularly important because of the second meaning of the head: the "head" of a government. Being the legitimate king, Arthur is, therefore, the head of the resistance government, and that Arthur's own head is wounded, illustrates for us how his position as head of the resistance, and the resistance itself, has taken a literal beating. Why? Look at Arthur's eye: eyes symbolize our deeper, inner-vision, our meditative capabilities and being able to "see" things as they truly are (without delusion or illusion). Arthur has obviously been beaten in his eye and it has turned purple (not blue or black, or even that tinge of green/yellow when it's been healing) and purple, as we know symbolizes suffering and royalty: only the Roman emperor was wealthy enough to afford clothes dyed in purple, so it symbolizes the royalty and wealth, but when the purple cloak was draped over Jesus during His Passion, purple also became associated with the suffering fit for a king to endure for his people, rather than the people having to suffer for the king (which had been the reigning thought up to this time). So, on one hand, Arthur's eye is swollen, suggesting he's not seeing everything (his eye is in the process of swelling shut so he can't see out of it at all) but also, what he does see is being "colored" by his suffering (the purple) and his unique role in being the exiled king (the blanket--I guess that's what it is--around his shoulders is interesting, because it emphasizes his role of kingship, without him being yet crowned). It's further interesting, although difficult to interpret, that the swelling eye is his right eye, rather than his left eye: the right side of our body (or basically anything in general) is interpreted as being the "correct" or "strong" side (especially morally) whereas the left side of anything is usually interpreted as being corrupt or weak. Knowing that Arthur says, "I'm going to kill him," in this clip (supposedly referring to Vortigern) we might interpret this scene, at this point with the information we have, to be that Arthur's wanting to kill Vortigern is coming from a weakened moral impulse and not from a superior source of Arthur's kingly wisdom; why? His cheek.|
In order to discuss Arthur's cheek, let's look at another hero with an interesting cheek mark: Captain Jack Sparrow. If you look at the very bottom of this post, there is a poster for Pirates Of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and on Jack's right side of his face, there is an "X" on his cheek; why? The most common interpretation for the cheeks is to "Turn the other cheek," inferring that when someone has wronged you, as Christ taught, we are meant to let them harm us again, rather than to take revenge (because revenge belongs to God). We know that Javier Bardem's Captain Salazar seeks revenge against Sparrow for Salazar's death, so we might interpret the "X" marks the spot (of a pirate's life) as Sparrow being marked for revenge by Salazar. So, back to Arthur, Arthur may not be "turning the other cheek," and feels he is owed revenge for the death of his parents. We have heard, I believe it was in the first teaser which came out just before the second trailer, Arthur saying, "You created me, and for that, I bless you," and that's a sign of Arthur's wisdom, because he recognizes that he had to discipline himself and become a real leader in order to be worthy of Excalibur and the people willing to fight with him. So, at this point in this scene above, Arthur might not be very wise, but he's following in the path of another famous Englishman: James Bond. Remember, in Spectre, Bond says he's going to kill Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) as announces that to Blofeld when he and Madeline arrive at the desert compound, but, when Bond really has the chance to do so, he doesn't (in Batman vs Superman, Batman also has a chance to kill Lex Luthor at the end, but doesn't). We'll have to see if Arthur kills Vortigern, or if Arthur allows the devil to take Vortigern, which is kind of what happened to Blackwood in Sherlock Holmes (and, like Blackwood, Vortigern is certainly in league with the devil).
|Above, we analyze the wounds on Arthur's face to get an idea of what his character is feeling, but not expressing in the scene. Why is this important? Because of these guards/soldiers right here. Basically, we have seen these guys before: the motorcycle riders in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Zoolander 2 motorcycle riders, storm troopers in Star Wars the Force Awakens and also Rogue One, the upcoming gold women in Guardians Of the Galaxy Vol 2 (because they all look alike, they have no individuality), the members of the mafia gang at the start of John Wick Chapter 2, and in The Mummy, think of all the birds that crash into the plane en masse, and then all the rats crawling over Tom Cruise, and all the faceless dead people, and others I'm not going to take the time to look up; the point is, when there is a lack of personality, or individuality, that's a sign of socialism; why? Because socialism doesn't want individuals, because individuals want freedom to express their individuality, and individualism makes us human, but socialists want us to believe we are animals; God gave us individual talents and gifts, but socialists want to deny God, so they will deny your individuality and the gifts God gave you. These soldiers are a perfect example of that. Further, we can see from the scars and bruising Arthur has experienced which he wears on his face that his face shows who he is, and who he is not. We have all ready discussed how scars on Arthur's face and neck reveal traits he has (not being a good judge of character, and being led by things of the world, rather than spirituality or higher causes). The soldiers in the image above don't have those scars, they have nothing but brute force and the orders they have been given. Now, think real hard: what other soldiers in history would kick in doors in the dead of night and pull people out of their beds and send them off to never be seen again? If you answered the Nazis, you are correct, my friend! From the Nazi-style salute we see in the second trailer to these faceless goons and Vortigern's crushing need for power, we have a film championing the populist wave of anti-politicians and the embracing of "new" leaders to replace them for the sake of the whole world.|
|This is the image with the mark on Sparrow's cheek, in the very upper-left corner, just off to the side of his eye. There is plenty to discuss in this poster, but it will have to wait another time.|
|Without having seen either Transformers 5 or King Arthur: Legend Of the Sword, I can't say why they are both included in these films, however, we can say that the story of King Arthur and his knights offers a vocabulary for modern film makers, which hasn't been required for public discourse in decades. From information in the trailer, however, we can glean at least two reasons why King Arthur is important: first, as Anthony Hopkins' character tells us, when there are no leaders, there is chaos, and, secondly, they were all men. First, King Arthur is the quintessential leader who brought order amidst the chaos of anarchy and lawlessness sometime in the early Dark Ages. He established order, for all people, to be protected under the law and for those who committed acts deemed unlawful, they would be punished accordingly, and that is a system which largely perseveres unto today. More on this in a moment. Secondly, it was the white men who did this, not the women, not the proletariat uprising, not Black Lives Matter, not the Vagina Monologues, but men who did this, and men who were all white and, as far as we know, heterosexual. They didn't offer law just for themselves, or justice just for themselves, they defended and protected everyone who needed it and especially those who couldn't offer anything in return (the poor). Now, keeping these thoughts in mind, let us turn to the second scene in the bottom image.|
If you look below, past the next paragraph to the first image at the top of the next images provided, we see the female robot (the Maker of Optimus Prime who has imprisoned him) asking him if he wants redemption. Back to the images above this caption you are reading at this moment, please look at what happens to Optimus Prime's eyes: they have turned pink. Why? Feminism. Optimus Prime, like Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War, has become a feminist, and bought-into their narrative that men are bad, and they have done all these terrible things ("You have destroyed your home," meaning, you have been the optimal example of what it means to be the very best in all things, and in doing that, you have ruined the world that feminists want to have for themselves, where no one can do anything good without the government's help; do you want redemption for the horrible crime you have committed in being so good? And Optimus Prime answers, "My Maker, yes"). In this important scene, Prime's eyes turn from blue, to pink; why? The eyes are the windows of the soul (yes, I know, they are machines and don't have souls, but let's say it's the soul but really mean Prime's "program" or "operating system" because this is meant to apply to us the audience who do have souls). Whereas Prime has always been a male, he has now been TRANSFORMED into a female. Yea, it's kind of transgender, he's gone from being a protector of everyone, to being an offensive and aggressive jerk for his female boss who is willing to kill anyone and everyone, even Bumblebee, who was like his son; but because Bumblebee has also been "male," Bumblebee must also die if he won't become a feminist. Please, keep reading below for more.
|When, may I ask, have people like Donald Trump, come out and said, in order for my world of billionaires and white men to survive, the world of women, blacks and other minorities must die? They haven't. It is, fundamentally, in nearly every culture, the duty of men to protect other members of their culture and society. We know, however, that it is a fundamental premise of socialism and communism that any socialist state must wage war on non-socialist states, because the non-socialist state will make the socialist state look bad (in terms of quality of living, personal and civil liberties and technological developments, none of which exist in a socialist/communist society). Any socialist country, then, has to wage war on every other country and destroy their way of life in order that socialism might survive (even then it wouldn't survive, but this is the rationale behind all of it). So, when Prime, in the image below, tells the woman, In order for my world to survive, yours must die, he's admitting that, like all the rioters, and the terrorists, and the feminists and other minority groups who have been "protesting" the sane, normal and lawful society in which they have the blessing and great fortune to live in, are trying to tear it down, those protesters are testifying that, in order for their world of chaos to live, they have to destroy the order of the world in which we all live now, so that no one will any longer thrive or have any rights. If you don't believe me, please watch the rioters and protesters in the trailer for Detroit, because it's spelled out quite clearly there.|
|Just as I am posting on King Arthur, I am also getting a post up on The Mummy because a ton of information has been released in these two new trailers.|
