Episode #21 – Are There Any Movies for Conservatives This Summer? (Interview with CBC Film Reviewer Douglas Ernst)

It’s summer and Hollywood is in full swing with movies conservatives will love, or outright hate! To help guide the conservative moviegoer, we interviewed CBC movie reviewer Doug Ernst to learn about summer movies conservatives should see, and which ones to avoid.  We also discuss the state of Hollywood, its deep-rooted liberalism, the new Dinesh D’Souza and Michael Moore documentaries, and if Hollywood will ever make movies again for conservatives. Find out in our exclusive podcast author interview!


  • 3:52 Like it or hate it? Doug’s not sure about Sicario 2.
  • 5:07 Check out something more family friendly and wholesome: the Christopher Robin movie coming up in August!
  • 6:38 Doug gives us his thoughts on Dinesh D’Souza’s next movie, Death of a Nation, which hits the big screens August 3rd!
  • 10:31 Keep your eyes peeled for confirmation bias in September, when Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 is released.
  • 11:54 We’ve got another Robin movie for you, but it’s not Christopher. Doug and Chris discuss the upcoming Robin Hood movie.
  • 13:56 Are we stuck in the anti-Trump era, where all summer movies have political messages? Doug says Incredibles 2 is a sign of hope in an uphill battle against a liberal Hollywood.
  • 16:55 Love Avengers, Black Panther, and Ant Man? Doug tells us the about biggest threat to superhero movies.
  • 20:10 The solution to overly political, liberal movies isn’t conservative movies – it’s simply good stories. For example? Star Wars!
