Chris Pratt has become something of a go-to conservative icon within Hollywood’s woke – some say pedophiliac – circles. He has withstood cancellation efforts and only become stronger. He remains an A-list blockbuster among Marvel’s dying brand and now has a new awesome show being streamed on Amazon.
Both Marvel’s parent company, Disney, and Amazon have done what they can to turn once-great franchises into identity politic dumpster fires, ruining Star Wars, comics, and Lord of the Rings. Thankfully, Chris Pratt knows better and is the star in the Navy Seals action series The Terminal List.
Naturally, because it’s good and tells a wholesome pro-America story (think: Top Gun Maverick) critics tried obliterating it. It has received an abysmal score of 40/100 on Rotten Tomatoes, a site which gave The Last Jedi and Black Panther rave reviews. They didn’t even bother reviewing Matt Walsh’s What Is A Woman? – a documentary so powerful they could only pretend it didn’t exist lest more people caught onto the dangerous transgender activism.
Pratt’s show has outpaced the Kevin Costner’s tepid Yellowstone, which despite being considered non-woke had plenty of narratives to push, not least of which was the entire premise of the conflict. In that show, white landowners are pitted against native peoples hellbent on restealing land they consider stolen. If Native Americans think they have the moral high ground, they have another thing coming.
And now, that show’s star, Kevin Costner, has decided that Liz Cheney is a good human being worthy of reelection to save democracy. Good luck with that.
In response to the intentionally wrong reviews, Pratt slapped back – as the woketards would say – with two terrific ripostes. First, he shared a link to an article from the U.K.’s Daily Mail which ran the title “The new Yellowstone: Chris Pratt’s new Navy thriller The Terminal List defies woke critics’ scathing reviews to shoot up ratings chart with 1.6 BILLION minutes of streams.”
That’s a lot of streaming.
Then, as a follow up, the Daily Wire wrote that Pratt trolled critics with a hilarious photo and caption.
“[The] actor posted the article to his Instagram stories over the weekend, followed by a photo of Dr. Evil from the “Austin Powers” franchise with the caption, “One point six BILLLLLLLLLION minutes,” reiterating just how popular the project is with fans.”
The Daily Wire reposted several of the top comments on Rotten Tomatoes, where Pratt’s series has a score of 94/100 from filmgoers against the fake 40/100 official “movie critics” attempted to use to scare people away.
“As a veteran I appreciate their efforts to make this as realistic as possible,” one Rotten Tomatoes reviewer wrote. Several other reviewers said the show depicted the military as it really was rather than the typical Hollywood version.
“An awesome show, Chris Pratt is fantastic, as a non-right winger this show is for everyone,” another agreed.
“It’s a universal truth of Rotten Tomatoes, if the ‘critics’ hate it… and the audience loves it (over 95% positive) then it is a GUARANTEED hit. That’s the case here… this show was excellent! One of the few new shows that I had to binge because you wanted to know what happened next!” someone else shared.
“Great tv series! Awesome to see a modern production showing real men and some traditional values – loyalty, courage, duty, family, overcoming hardship. Hope studios take note of what the public really want, in total opposition to the critics, who are mainly elitist ideologues,” one reviewer shared.
Perhaps the funniest came from Daily Wire’s message board. One user wrote:
“In response, Hulu is putting out a similar military thriller that’s aimed at a more woke audience. Tragedy strikes when the stripper pole at the mandatory Drag Queen show at Fort Bragg is over-greased, resulting in several burst breast implants. Suspecting domestic terrorists to be behind the attack, Jag Officer Doodlebug Bryn Mawr, a non-binary queer identifying transexual (they/them) is assigned to investigate. Over the course of 10 exciting episodes, Doodlebug uncovers a frightening conspiracy of White Supremecy [sic] and Cultural Appropriation that reaches to the very top of our government. Tune in!”
