Agreed. I don't care for the politics of anyone involved, but I don't go through life only dealing with people whose politics I like when it doesn't matter. Life's too short. I like movies. That's all.
Koepp is a boob and an ignoramus, but I wanted to see this movie, and I saw it, and shockingly my support of the war didn't drop one bit!

"Koepp is a boob and an ignoramus" You are right on! How can the "professionals" do such a bad job selecting/defining the characters and writing the plot when there was so much opportunity to do better?
Ordinary people who are not industry professionals can see the many flaws and logical holes and inconsistencies which spoil the movie.
The movie industry is selling us a lot of junk with a few real gems in the mix (e.g., the three Lord of the Rings movies).
The movie industry gets their bad movies into the theaters by forcing the theater operators to buy packages of movies in order to get the good movies. The theater operators cannot cherry-pick only the good or best movies. They have to buy the junk movies to get the good ones. To help make up for this, the theaters jack up their prices on the food concessions and show paid advertisements for up to twenty minutes after the official start time of the movie.
What a racket!
