I live in California – yes, there are still lots of right-wingers here. September and October are tough months in California
because of the Santa Ana winds. The winds are dry and it can lead to many devastating wild fires. I’ve had some scary
encounters with wild fire. The ash and air quality is absolutely horrible. It really does suck being trapped in your home
waiting a fire out. It can be scary when you have to suddenly drop everything and run for your life. I cannot imagine what
the fire fighters are going through. This movie is based on actual events which made me even more curious about the movie.
To keep it simple, I really enjoyed this film. The first half of the movie was a little slow – that is understandable of
course because you want to have some character development. I wasn’t feeling some of the characters, maybe that is probably
why I thought it felt slow. The film brings a unique perspective on the life of fire fighters. Just like any profession, they
can have personal issues and challenges that effect their job or job prospect.
The early part of the film also focuses on how they become “Hotshots.” Hotshots are a unit of the best fire fighters.
When you see this group of Hotshots go fight the fire is when the film starts to heat up. (Did you see what I did there?)
Obviously, the film becomes more engaging and exciting when the fire fighters start their battle. The scenes were well done.
The director did a good job capturing the importance of team work and of the many different challenges a fire fighting team encounters.
The visual effects of the fire were solid; all the technical aspects of the film were solid. The cast is well known and
they didn’t disappoint. It was well acted and very believable. It was well worth my money and also made me love fire fighters even more.

Director: Joseph Kosinski Cast: Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly
Jennifer Connelly and Josh Brolin have virtue signaled before but said nothing really bad towards right-wingers. Connelly is in a
supporting role. The main stars are the men. The rest of the cast I don’t think said anything stupid in public about right-wingers.
I don’t think any of these men deserve a boycott.
*Editors Note –
- Jeff Bridges has exclusively donated to left-wing politicians. He has not publicly said anything
hypocritical or went out of his way to reiducle right-wing politicians. He seems like a down to earth Dem.
- The Director has not said or done anything that deserves a boycott. We don’t know where he stands politically. He seems like a good guy.
ReeYaa Score = Somewhat Approve
Leftist Social Engineering (LSE)
There are some moments about civic management - There is no crazy LSE going on though. This movie might actually offend some weak minded leftist.
There are a bunch of macho men running around saving the day. The trend now is that woman have to be the stars and heroes in Hollywood.
If JJ Abrams directed this movie, he would have a bunch of woman saving the day. (I’m a female by the way) I wouldn’t worry about the LSE.
ReeYaa Score = Low
I think my fellow right-wingers will enjoy this movie. It is a solid all around movie showing a realistic view of fire fighters.
