Seth Rogen is a Commie-Victim
Seth Rogen is the most recent victim of the Hollywood machine. He has not been sexually harassed, he is not claiming to be the target of racism or sexism and he’s not claiming minority status based on his preferred gender or pronouns.
No, he’s a victim because he’s an actor\filmmaker.
Rogen wants you to know that he knows people, “who have never recovered” from a negative review.
Oh, you have not heard of this new category of victimhood? Truly, everyone is a victim in 21st Century American culture. Even if you are paid millions of dollars for your work that the movie critics do not like.
We are not race-baiters here at Loor, but if white privilege really existed, this would be an example of it. Let’s call it something else. Let’s call it, “Leftist-elitist privilege.”
In his recent interview with Steven Bartlett of the Diary of a CEO podcast, Rogen bemoaned negative film reviews and their psychological effects on content creators. He said, “I think if most critics knew how much it hurts the people that made the things that they are writing about, they would second guess the way they write these things.”
Maybe, but I have to believe that some of that lucrative contract money from Hollywood might take the edge off a little. If that doesn’t do it, maybe he could take some solace from the money he makes with his own cannabis company (based in Hollywood Hills). Or some solace from the cannabis.
Cry me a river, Seth.
The reason why most Christian films suck as much as they do is because of the complete absence of true film critics in that genre.
Marcus Pittman and I tried to do that with a blog called Gospel Spam back in the days of the first God’s Not Dead film. A lot of other Christian films were popping up at that time and what we did there became so successful that Mark Ciardi (Secretariat, Miracle, Invincible and now CEO of Apex Films) granted Marcus an interview about his film Million Dollar Arm (starring Jon Hamm).
We were so successful that some Christian filmmakers made threatening phone calls demanding my phone number. Ah, the good old days.
And then Marcus went on to build Apologia Studios and do contract work for Pureflix. But no one ever stepped up and filled the gap that was (snicker) left behind.
No industry benefits when there is a lack of independent critique within it. Rogen wants something like the situation that Putin has in Russia—carte blanche with the media and no freedom of the press.
That should work well.
It brings a whole new meaning to the term, “State-run media.”
Fight Rogen’s communist vision of Hollywood. Tell your friends to get signed up for updates on our launch. We are oh so close.

If you spend any time with directors and producers in Christian film, eventually their socialistic mindset will seep out.
17th Century Sacred Poetry Sucked
17th Century sacred poetry, like a lot of poetry today, sucked.
