This is one DVD my children won’t be watching.

I’ll never get the Hollywood commies. The reason for their success is capitalism, yet they bash it every chance they get.

Useful idiots...:

While it’s no secret that Hollywood films tend to skew left in general,‘Astro Boy’ may be the first animated blockbuster to discuss, if not necessarily endorse, explicit Marxist ideologies (albeit in cute robot form, of course.) In the movie, the aforementioned outcasts, led by Robotsky, form the Robot Revolutionary Front, stenciling their logo on city walls and chanting “Viva La Robotolution” at anyone within earshot.

On the whole, it’s played for laughs, but makes us ponder the question:

Have animated films gotten more leftist in recent years?
