Pro-American Vs. Anti-American at the U.S. Box Office

Maybe I totally missed the theme you are talking about but I watched Hurt Locker and I found it to be a pretty accurate portrait of a man who is so scarred by lose and what he has seen that he cannot go back. It's really comfortable of all of you who have never put on the uniform to believe that military life is some walk in the park where everybody comes back a hero and no one does anything that may be morally questionable. I don't remember anything about that movie that supports you're contention of Unamericanism. All I remember is a movie about a soldier with a death wish. It happens all the time when a man has seen to much. Maybe if you people can wrap your head around the reality of combat the VA will take PTSD seriously!!

I didn't think of it as anti-american either. It was long. That might have kept the attendence down.

It's not often that we can measure something like pro or anti-American political bias in American movies, but we can today because of a unique experiment conducted by Hollywood!

The reason why is because of the uneven level of quality of most movies, which can make it extremely difficult to make direct comparisons of a characteristic like political bias between them using the measure of how well they do at the box office. For example, one movie in a given genre might have good acting, but suffers from bad writing or poor direction. Another movie might have only okay...
