AOC Imitates Neo-Cons and Loses Big
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) new documentary, “To the End” (released December 9) has bombed in theaters like Hiroshima and Nagasaki, combined.
Box Office Mojo reports that the film has made a whopping $9,667 in 120 theaters since its release.
Thus ends the similarities of this article to the ones by every neo-con outlet in your browser history.
The receipts are just embarrassing and it is not fair to compare this to Christian films, because even films that suck make a lot more money than this joke. And they’re better. This is suckier.
Some observations you won’t read elsewhere:
- What non-Marvel, summer blockbuster has NOT bombed in the theaters this year? I know they’ve done better than this, but this film won’t lose as much as Disney on any number of projects.
- The target audience is shifting to streaming at home. When this film goes to Netflix or Amazon, it will get strong reviews and a lot of hits if Rotten Tomatoes means anything.
- While the data paints this as a loser in the wider American culture, make no mistake. AOC’s viewpoint will win the Democrat establishment because she’s doing what Republican activists don’t. She is demanding radical environmental policy changes and won’t settle for anything less. Compare that with the pro-life lobbyists who settle for just about anything short of total abolition and as a result never get it, even post-Roe.
AOC’s mistake is the same as most neo-con documentarians. She thought she could imitate a right wing facts and data documentary and have a winning effort.
She could have sped up this whole process of taking over the Democratic Party if she would have told a story that people found interesting.
She’s making the same mistake the pro-lifers are. And most Christian film.
