Election Day Special

Get out and vote!

Today is an historic day in America. If you live in the U.S., please exercise your right to vote. Maybe you don't think it makes a difference. You're wrong. Maybe you think no candidate is worth supporting. You're wrong. And if you don't vote, you're wrong.

To celebrate a day that will, one way or the other, change the course of human history, let's take a look back at our coverage of some political or patriotic movies.

All the President's Men
The American President 

Dave

A Face in the Crowd
Invasion USA

Nashville

Olympus Has Fallen
The Purge: Election Year

Red Dawn

Red State
White House Down

F This Movie! Episode 25: Hanging Chads

Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen, and please...don't forget to vote!

    1. "Pretty much every single thing in They Live is still relevant today, except there is no internet in They Live. Otherwise, the movie's portrayal of an America in which the 1% (or the 47% for you Mitt Romney fans) control and, in a way, repress much of the country is basically accurate, at least in its biggest, broadest, most satirical strokes." - Yep!

  2. I'm thinking of watching Lincoln so I can get a nice nap in and not stress too much.

  4. There's going to be a ton of interesting movies that come out of this awful event. Movies are greater than Trump.

    1. This isn't a YouTube comments section. Take your hate-mongering somewhere else.

  9. Reading this thread reminds me of the #fthismoviefest Twitter feed halfway through the Explorers.... except this not some weird alien talking gibberish, this is for real. But it's good to have a community to share my bemusement with. Thanks F-Heads. Movies are great, and I love them even more because it is the cornerstone of this community.

    Just wanted to put some sunny positivity out there in these possibly batshit crazy times. (Also to bring it back to F This Movie Fest, Back to the Future was the next movie after Explorers... so if that's any indication, there's something fantastic waiting just around the corner...)

  10. Watched Dave and Matinee to help me cope with things. Dave for the idealistic notion of what a President could do to actually help people. Matinee because I truly feel that we have the capacity to make it through some horrifying stuff and come through it on the other side.

    As bad as things could potentially get, I'm thankful for this community and particularly to Patrick who enabled us to accomplish something positive this year with the podcastathon. As much as fear, intolerance, and ignorance appear to be the driving influences for a lot of people right now, it's important to remember that there are still people out there who are willing to pull together to do something good and that at least offers me some solace.
