I am a bit of a fan of the pro-environmental animated film FernGully. While I do disapprove of the extreme political message in the film, it is an entertaining fantasy adventure story with likable characters, so I can mostly push such thoughts aside to enjoy the film. However, as I think about it, I believe the movie’s plot contains such an extreme message that it itself contains troubling subject matter that actually casts a poor light on the general movement the film seeks to promote. This is seen in the characters’ devotion towards the trees they protect and the hatred felt toward the machine that cuts them down, as well as an overall bigoted view of various species, and other instances of dubious morality.
Trump's reign is sad for tech, too
