One thing that grabs my attention is anything and everything that pisses LIBERALS off… That is why I was so pleasantly surprised to see a Netflix Documentary on one of my favorite writers and directors in leftist Hollywood: John Milius. Milius is responsible for such awesome and timeless movies as Dirty Harry, Apocalypse Now, Jeremiah Johnson, The Wind and the Lion, Conan the Barbarian and Red Dawn to name a few. Everybody can name some movies that were influential on them in some way; for me that was almost all of John Milius’ films.
I mean what gun-lover and conservative could ever forget Red Dawn for God’s sake! That movie was responsible for me getting my first AK-47! or how about Conan the Barbarian, a movie which was responsible for being the fore-runner of all the fantasy movies that would follow such as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Game of Thrones to name a couple.
Most people who consider themselves true movie fans often have no ideal who John Milius is or that he is responsible for some of the most popular LINES in Hollywood movies.
From Lt. Colonel Bill Kilgore’s awesome line in Apocalypse Now:
To Eastwood’s infamous “Dirty Harry” Line:
and last but not least Schwartzenegger’s movie debut in Conan:
Milius is probally one of the most creative writers to EVER come out of Hollywood. But what makes him really special IMO is his tendency to always swim AGAINST the stream of liberal Hollywood, constantly promoting conservative ideals and gun rights (Milius did a plethora of NRA ads) and in the process getting himself virtually “blacklisted” and unable to find work.
Do yourself a favor and watch the Milius Documentary on Netflix, if you are like me you will find it refreshing and inspirational to see such a talented, creative person, who refuses to abandon his conservative beliefs, despite being surrounded by lefty’s at every turn, and in the process, create some of the best scenes and lines in cinematic history.
