Another trailer for the Oscar bait-y Iron Lady is now online

12.09.2011

"Oscar bait" is a common enough trend, particularly during this winter season. But is any film this year more in-your-face about it than THE IRON LADY?

What makes it worse is that THE IRON LADY is so obviously trying to humanize and make sympathetic (even heroic) a kind of despicable human figure of the United Kingdom. How exactly will the film portray things such as the crippling of unions, the needless war with the Falklands, the implementation of the poll-tax, the doing away of student grants, or the...

"But bro, she'll like totally win an Oscar! Isn't that what counts?"

THE IRON LADY opens in limited release on December 30th.

Synopsis: THE IRON LADY tells the compelling story of Margaret Thatcher, a woman who smashed through the barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male-dominated world. The story concerns power and the price that is paid for power, and is a surprising and intimate portrait of an extraordinary and complex woman.

Hey George Merchan

Stick to movie reporting dick, and keep politics out of it. This is why I switched from Aint It Cool in the first place. I suggest, unless you'd like a mass exodus of readers, that you put your head back up your ass.

Hang on a second

As a Brit I take total offense at the reference to a needless war with the Falklands!!!!

For a start we were not at war with the Falklands, we were at war with Argentina. The Falklands is British Soil and was illegally invaded by Argentina, therefore we went to war to defend what is ours and to protect our rights there. Would an American be so quick to dismiss a war to protect his territory as needless? I don't think so.

I was growing up during Margaret Thatcher's time as Prime Minister

I was growing up during Margaret Thatcher's time as Prime Minister and whilst I could see first hand the misery that the country suffered under a Conservative Government at the time, I have yet to see any valid argument other than the Argentinian one, why we should not have gone to war at that time.

Keep your political opinion separate from your movie opinion when you clearly have no idea what you are talking about!

Theme song?

Would be funny if the theme song was "Miss Maggie" by french singer Renaud.

Really? Isn't that the challenge of acting and drama? To take on an 'evil' character and find a moment of sympathy /understanding with them? For example: WHO was she, WHY did she do these things?

I thought that would be obvious...

And 'war with the Falklands'? Do you even know what the Falklands are? They aren't a group of people you know...
