Getting It? Matthew Vaughan Says He Edited Out Anti-Trump Bits From "Kingsmen" Sequel, Prioritizing Escapism and Audience Unity Over Divisive Political Statements

One of the worst accusations you can make about a Hollywood worker is that he might lean conservative. So I would not libel Matthew Vaughan like that.

I would note, though, that the first Kingsmen had a scene that was glorious in its edginess and willingness to offend partisans of the previous president.

He said that was just some lighthearted fun. And so it was.

In fairness, "Kingsmen" was more of a quasi-nihilist scream at all of the ruling elite, of both the stuffy conservative my-ancestors-signed-the-Magna-Carta stripe and the weird, controlling progressive we-shall-remake-the-world-in-our-perfect-godly-image type. It was really not political so much as it encoded that juvenile impulse towards rebellion and desecration of sacred cows. (And while that is a juvenile impulse, associated chiefly with the young, I will also insist it is often useful to exercise that juvenile impulse. Just because we change as we grow up doesn't mean that we had everything wrong when we were young, and it doesn't mean that older guys who are approaching 29 years old, such as myself, still can't find some sneaky teenage joy in juvenilia.)

So its politics, to the extent it had them, weren't conventional left-right but populist of any persuasion vs elite of any stripe, or youthful irreverence vs. mature stodginess.

Anyway, this guy, who I'm sure Believes All the Right Things That All the Right People Believe, shied away from turning his escapist popcorn fun into yet another divisive round of political virtue signalling.

Apparently the script called for Julianne Moore, playing a (wow, so novel) evil corporate CEO type, talking about her desire to host The Apprentice. Vaughan deleted that as possibly alienating to some of the audience.

And:

"We were building a White House Oval Office in the style of Trump Tower. We were making it in all gold and blinging it up. This was in May of 2016 and then I had an inkling. I remember saying to my American production designer, 'Trump might win, you know? Would this be as funny if Trump won?'And he was like, 'Trump will never win.' And I said, 'You know what, I have a weird feeling he might. So let's build a normal Oval Office and scrap the Trump version.'"


Looking back, Vaughn knows he made the right decision, because "if you go too far -- if movies get political when they're meant to be fun -- then it weighs everything down a bit too much."

Damn right brother. There are movies with political themes and there should be -- but we should get political messages from movies which are expressly political, thematically political from start to finish, and which announce right in the trailers they're political movies. We don't need or want pointless and tasteless political snarks and jibes inserted into movies that have no connection to political themes, except some SJW screenwriter's insistence that we need at least three Trump jokes in a film Because I Just Can't Even With This Any More. #TheResistance!

That said, let's enjoy the subversive and to this day utterly shocking climatic sequence featuring a whispy half-black president with a voice both sonorous and somnmbulant but who is definitely not Obama, according to Vaughan, getting his totalitarian head exploded by a neural implant he agreed to have inserted into him to protect him from the mass human extermination event he agreed to fund and assist in.

By the way, I hear the film is so-so. Pretty good, but not nearly as good (or fresh) as the first one. I guess if you're on the fence but want to signal to Hollywood you want more of this sort of non-political stuff, maybe go see it?

79 Honestly, I believe this is one of those "you can't put the genie back in the bottle moments.

Anyone who leans left has felt free to express their distaste for people who don't agree with them. In Obamaland the prevailing feeling was that unmasking would be inconsequential. Through sheer maniacal control of the media, "star power", coercion and weaponizing the government, most who didn't agree would be forced, shamed or propagandized into submission.

What some people (Vaughan included) determined is their vocation was largely dependent on a relatively neutral view of anything political. That such a view would be destructive to the entertainment value, creativity and escapism the audience derived from your product. Ergo the first Kingsmen was actually eh, but watchable on an entertainment level.

By the way, "NFL, please pick up the white courtesy phone."

2) And pretty much every leader in the world got his/her head blown up. Not just Not-Obama.

One of the best and worst features of streaming is 'they' know what I am watching, what I turned on and abandoned after a few minutes, what I watched until the end. You now have Neilsen ratings which is... just how representative the hell are they actually... sort of like poll numbers?

Now you have these streaming services that *actually* know what people are watching, probably want to watch more of in the future. If they follow a market driven philosophy a lot of bullshit fringe element stuff is going to no longer get produced. Because people just don't care.

I'm hopeful. The 'old' way just wasn't cutting it with me.

"Our drug addicts never turn us down. We'll just wait it out till they start going through the shakes and then we'll charge them even more."

I just saw it again. The plot is tight and Harry does actual police work. Also, the evidence he collects (the slug from David Soul's gun) is *suggestive,* but not conclusive, fueling his suspicions but not confirming them.

There's some actual dramatic scenes. Not high drama, but just people talking, arguing. And he's not always being Based. Like, when his superiors give him an order, he indicates his displeasure, but he doesn't openly contradict them. (Mostly.)

You don't see that often in movies now. Everything's so Pushed to 11. No reality.

The libs love to recreate A Man for All Seasons- anything less than a complete and utter vocal approval for everything they do is seen as complete disapproval- and therefore the malcontents must be dealt with.

For a lot of them, even the higher ups, it probably has to do with getting pat on the back approval from the cocktail crowd as well.

138 what I like in Magnum Force is that Harry has suspicions and theories, but he's not *convinced* of them until the Vigilante Four confirm it.

Like, he's a normal human being with imperfect and limited information, and is sometimes unsure of the truth.

In today's movies, most of the time, the hero has NO IDEA of who the villain is, then there is a HUGE DRAMATIC REVELATION, and then he is completely certain of the villain. He goes from perfect ignorance to perfect conviction.

I like it so much that we see Harry Callahan first having these crazy ideas about what's going on, then doing some police work that suggests maybe the crazy idea is right but still he's not sure, and then only later finding out his crazy idea was right.

Again: like a normal, reasonably-intelligent person would proceed from hypothesis to conviction in real life.

Even when MF is pushing things to 11, it does it in a plausible way. It's like... they're at the docks, and there are two fleet carriers in drydock for scrapping. Motorcycles getting driven on them happens organically, and fleet carriers being scrapped was actually happening - which is where those two came from in the first place. Scrappers.

Miguel Ferarra -- the junior exec from RoboCop -- said he had been typecast as the Young Street Punk and only got roles wearing a leather jacket and being a thug. Then he got put into a suit in RoboCop, and said "Now I'm only being offered roles where I wear a suit."

190 >>>hat happened in the Southern Evangelical Church? Did they gets their heads blown off too or just your normal Evangelical church where theres a riot among members?/sarc.

The mass extermination plan was to send an audio signal that stimulated the brain into psychotic murder mode. The Church was used as a demo area/test run.
The congregation was depicted as you'd imagine -- racist, homophobic, stupid, etc.

But the murders and stuff happened only because the bad guy used them to test his Psychotic Reaction neurowave. They all went crazy and started killing each other. So did the hero (Colin Firth) -- so it's not like they were just susceptible to it. It works on everyone.

That said, the whole thing was intended for people who hate Southern Christians to get off on seeing them all getting killed.

But that aside -- it was a frenetic, potent bit of hyperviolence that made sense in the movie's reality.

191 I agree to an extent. But with producers, directors and all movie people so overwhelmingly liberal, the junk is still going to be produced.

For a lot of them, even the higher ups, it probably has to do with getting pat on the back approval from the cocktail crowd as well.

Maybe, maybe not. The power of persuasion when dollars are involved and the streamer services say, 'Oh shit, we have the actual numbers for this genre, and nobody wants to watch that stuff. I'll give you 1/100th of a cent per view'.

We're talking renumeration levels around grocery store coupons.

It might just invite the next sentence, 'What do they want to see? What should I stay away from?'

He seemed to be intent on just skewering everyone. The Church scene seemed heavy handed to me, but in the context of the rest of the movie (the aforementioned head bursting scene of the supposed elites, etc) it felt of a piece.

There was no real group that he portrayed as 'good' or being 'with it'- not even the hero's age group or family. Quite the contrary.

His point, if he even had one, is that people are a mess.

Of course, getting a decent historical movie done even half-well on any serious subject is far beyond the imaginations of the talentless sequel machines, so this may be a "high point" of sorts.

Literally his whole schtick was a campaign to humanize blacks, subvert the minstrel show paradigm of silly songs with meaningful, heartfelt ballads, and to act as a proxy for those of his friends, black, who were cut out of the Hollywood roles.

So here's Al, having convinced Hollywood to make a movie about a black guy as the first big talkie - what a coup! Except that he's going to be reviled as That Blackface Guy Who Was A Horrible Racist starting thirty years later and ending never...

268 Probably a thorough analysis of the imagery to identify the class of carrier would be a start. Then determine which ships of that class were in the Bay at time of filming (I assume whole movie was shot in SF area).

They're the same class, and a brazilian of them were made, but the film crews don't appear to have really bothered to leave notes, meaning it's down to dates on the sale documents. And while the Rabaul belonged to somebody IIRC on the other side of the bay and is plausible, the actual dock belonged to somebody else(?) and the BingDing belonged to somebody in Portland at that time and some other escorts had been in the bay at least recently.

So it's possible the BingDing ended up transferred to the guy who owned the dock and he also got the Rabaul, or that the film crew shipped BingDing down the coast, or...

IIRC it's a mess.

I loved Richard Curtis' films until Love Actually when his politics weighed down a lovely film with a lovely message outside of political messages. I have not seen one since then, that was 2003.

It applies to most media. Berke Breathed was so funny until he became so angry that his political views overwhelmed his sense of irony.

Eh, look at the crowd - they're all standing. One would normally take that as a cue that kneeling is not the proper way to show respect. This was also taken during recent days when the kneeling thing has been intentionally used outside of anthem, such as Georgetown professors kneeling to protest Sessions, Sheila Jackson-Lee kneeling on the floor while Congress was in session, various celebs tweeting pics of themselves kneeling to indicate solidarity with the NFL players, etc.

I'd say he was attempting to find a new venue in which to inject the kneeling protest and failed miserably. He's proving how it is very much a "F@#$ you, America!" and not a pro-civil rights message.

Liberals want power, even if it is only a vicarious sense of power. So they are energized to infiltrate and politicize things, because if they can change people's minds and their guy gets in, it gives them a buzz.

Conservatives want to be left alone. They assume that politics is like plumbing. As long as it isn't overflowing fecal water all over the bathroom floor, just assume it's all running great and ignore it.

So naturally liberals are going to end up injecting political messages into culture, to get a buzz from being influential.

337 67 The first Kingsman also had a dig on Bush and Southern Evangelicals. Funny sad that The Southen Evangelical scene was not considered controversial. They seem to be fair game for both sides. Right Judge Moore?

I didn't like the slap at Southern Christians.

On the other hand, Samuel L. Jackson was a good representative of the wealthy global warming nuts and it was good to see him handled by the Kingsman.

Colin Firth is like Cary Grant in that he simply does not make bad movies. He's been in bad movies, but he redeems them.

338 I had lots of fun watching Kingsman: Golden Nipple Ring! For me, it was the third best movie of the year (after Baby Driver and Guardians of the Galaxy).

While it's good that directors are actually thinking about stuff like this, for a woman living in the fifties, wanting to host the Apprentice is a pretty good joke (not as good as the peacock though!)
