Who would have guessed it?
Bill Murray has starred in more conservative movies than any other star according to MY blog (which as we all know is the first and last name of conservative movies). The Lost City, Ghostbusters, Stripes, and now City of Ember!
He should rank with all of the great right-wing Hollywood royalty: Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Charlton Heston and Jimmy Stewart. And wouldn't you know it? He teams up with two of Hollywood's biggest libs Tim Robbins and Tom Hanks (producer) of this week's conservative movie. Ya gotta love it!
We all trust our government...right? The all knowing all caring government is always right and we are always wrong. That's the premiss of this week's film City of Ember.
Would you like to live in a state where your government strays from historic values and teachings that work? Or where your government picks out your child's future? Or tells you lies when your world is slowing being destroyed?
Perhaps you should just read this review from IMDb...
Ember is a city built to last 200 years from the Earth Destroyed by Blobs Humans Aliens called "Drei" . The builders of Ember left instructions to the mayors in a box that would open by itself. Unfortunately, one of the mayors was lazy and tossed the box into a closet, where it was forgotten for generations.
The year is 2416 A.D. After the Earth's destruction. Lina Mayfleet, and Doon Harrow are two children in Ember who find themselves on a mission to save their dying city. The city's lights are beginning to flicker and food supplies are running out.
Doon lands a job at the Pipeworks where he wants to try to repair the failing generator. Lina's job is simple - she is a messenger, but she soon finds herself in over her head when she discovers the box of instructions left by the builders so long ago.
Doon and Lina find themselves on a wild adventure when they discover the way out of Ember, but corrupt officials and a treacherous mayor stand against their wish to save the city. With courage and heart they brave the darkness - all to help their fellow citizens escape the dying city.
If you have a kid and want to teach him/her some early political conservative values, folks this is the film for your family! I highly recommend City of Ember and welcome your comments when you see this film.
This could be one of the classics your kids will remember!
