Yesterday my family and I saw 2016: Obama's America. We loved it (and hated it!). The movie was well made and well narrated, and lays out a comprehensive argument in easy to understand terms.
Immediately as we approached the theater in the parking lot, an older couple in their 60s perhaps, could be overheard with looks of anguish as they passed us by. Shaking his head, the older gentleman said, "He can't win again." We all looked at each other and knew they had just come out of a screening of 2016. Close behind the couple was a single old woman with a sense of urgency in both her face and walk. She saw us and immediately beelined towards us saying, "You have GOT to see 2016!" We told her we were and she ranted and raved to us for a few minutes about the movie, Obama, and the importance of voting before we finally got inside the theater. Perhaps all the Mediscaring tactics aren't working after all?
We attended a 1:30 in the afternoon showing and the theater was still moderately full. Looking around, most attendees were middle aged couples and senior citizens, and a few younger adults here and there. And all white. That didn't surprise me.
The movie was not entertaining. The information is repulsive and frightening, but it was information I already knew. The movie was produced very well, with purposeful narrating by Dinesh accompanied by a solid soundtrack. If anything, I am glad the facts are now out there for the general population. I am glad names like Frank Marshall Davis and Bill Ayers are now more well known to open minded people.
I don't expect liberals or staunch Democrat voters to want to see or care about this documentary. It contains too many uncomfortable facts about their anointed Comrade. The movie deserves and demands your respect and your willingness to accept and learn little known facts with an open mind, so that automatically disqualifies three quarters of the Democrat base. Those Democrats who would take something away from this are the older conservative blue dog Dems and I know many of them have already seen this.
2016 has already grossed nearly 20 million dollars, stunning the Hollywood elite with its amazing success. Why? 2016 had little to no promotional budget and relied on the power of small media and word of mouth to become popular. That says a lot about the current political climate.
