Hollywood Portrays Moms as Evil

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

Hollywood is increasingly portraying moms as evil, and so are the television networks. It seems to me that mom characters are becoming increasingly evil and dangerous for their kids, while great moms are so easily ignored.

There are some shows, like The Goldbergs, which represent what moms are really about – and I think it’s important to nurture shows like this, instead of shows where moms expose their kids to drugs, crime, and all sorts of other terrible things.

Alberta Maga,

There are tons of original movies coming out, simply due to the fact that there are more movies made every year than ever before and I personally watch a lot of those movies.

People are just not choosing to go to the theatre to watch them like movies that are typically nominated for Oscars, so while yes – theatre attendance is down, the money is going to steaming services/on demand – which is why every studio is coming out with their own version of Netflix and some studios are considering first run movies on demand.

Hollywood is doing just fine. People are just choosing different ways to consume it.

Nicholas Conklin if it were not for comic book movies Hollywood would have been hurting much much worse. New ideas are rare now.

Bruce Atchison,

Hollywood is losing money? Where?

Why can’t there be stories about bad mothers or bad fathers or bad whatever. I really don’t see the problem here. It’s fictional entertainment. It’s not real life.

No wonder Hollywood is losing money. They keep trying to propagandize us. Maybe I should switch to script writing so the clueless in Tinsel Town will get a clue about life in the bus lane.

I’m not sure of the vernacular, but I’ll take a chance and say, I think you’re pretty ‘Badass’ yourself, Martina.
An intelligent, attractive, conservative woman, with poise and manners, challenging the status quo of the propaganda-factory that is Lefty Hollywood…Badass!

I would assume it’s because the story/scripts require the mom to be bad. I don’t think it’s a big conspiracy against mothers. It’s entertainment.
