As for vidya, I consider Pokemon a guilty pleasure of mine. I don't see anybody on this site talk about it so I automatically assume I'm alone in liking it. I know the games are shit compared to pretty much any other game and I've hated the franchise since Gen 7, and under this system there's nothing I can do to stop that trainwreck of a series. But I like the monsters and characters, and the setting has so much potential. Which is exactly why I hate it because it's all wasted. Not to mention that they're still selling 2 versions of the same game which in this day and age could be easily replaced by some pokemon randomization per player like what they did with the Friend Safari in XY, but for obvious reasons they'll never do something like this. It's disgusting to see, but I can't help it, I still like Pokemon to an extent. Unfortunately if I tried to hack the games to make them better in any way, and share it with the world, I'd end up in some top secret Game Freak/Nintendo list, after which I'd get sent a C&D letter or worse, men in black would visit my house and physically threaten me so that I stop all "violation of intellectual rights" forever.

It's not things that aren't communist. It's things that are blatantly anti-communist or things that promote the worst ideas of neoliberalism, it's hard to ignore once you start noticing it. Of course, sometimes you're able to enjoy that stuff in an ironic sort of way which is not really a problem when the piece of media in question is just ridiculous or not taken seriously at all. So it depends.

Stranger Things (Either is genuinely anti-communist or plays it up for fun)
Marty Robbins (Wrote an anti-communist song)
Maybe billy joel…? I don't think he is openly political

He toured the USSR and wrote leningrad and we didn't start the fire but I'm not sure there's much politics in them other than just "events and stories that happened to billy joel"

Also maybe Holiday in cambodia, which I am not sure if it's supposed to be making fun of intellectual communist professors or radlibs

I haven't read up on pol pot regime so that's why I'm confused on whether or not he was communist, or the nazi type of """""communist"""'

https://msuweb.montclair.edu/~furrg/pol/khmerrouge.html - I found this link about cambodia but I don't know if I can cite it as a real source so I'm unsure if I should read it or not

You know what really makes me mad is how the supposed anti-reactionaries lefty gamers that usually made fun of right wing gamers turned around and made fun of people who were mad about pokemon sword and shield.
Not gonna lie gamers are crazy consumerists who sometimes send death threats to devs and that deserves to be mocked

But those popular good gamer twitter accounts painted all who thought gamefreaks practices are anti-consumerist, lazy and anti-worker (not hiring enough devs and people to work on the game to make it better and pushing out a product because muh merchandising deadlines) as psychos who threaten developers and are le silly and stupid and equating them with incels who complain about misogynistic gamer shit.

Really made me rethink who was really a leftist and who were just socially leftists.

Let's be honest, these games first functioned as propaganda to legitimize the CIA-funded mass murdering rapist counter revolutionaries in Nicaragua.

I like this dude, Rob Ager, makes pretty good film analyses and reviews, decent bloke with it, doesn’t have any dumbass film degree but is on par with anyone who does; however he also has a lot of rightoid views, used to be in UKIP, believes in retarded shit like “communist fascism”, and is a goddamned Gold Bug
Can’t say there are many things I like that can even be construed as explicitly anti-communist, however; so many explicitly anti-communist works hail from the 50s and 60s which I’m just not interested in, by the 80s the topic mostly seemed to shift from “Commies bad” to “nuclear war bad”

I guess Threads can be thought of as slightly anti-communist since the Soviets are the aggressors in the war, but the movie is still mostly about the war

I guess Rocky IV would also count as a guilty pleasure of mine that has communists as the antagonists, but again, it wasn’t really about communism imo and they did do something interesting with Drago’s character in Creed II by showing how the fall of the USSR basically ruined his entire life

90’s Adam Sadler movies. Even now as an adult I still love them for some reason. Maybe due to shit taste or because they were the only things outside of ghibli movies I got to watch during elementary school. Also I have a soft spot for Kevin James garbage mall cop movie but still hate the sequel.

More of an innocent pleasure than a guilty pleasure! Not really pro- or anti- communist. More like pure escapism.
It's like an old fashioned radio series, with a 1940s noir feel but set in a post-nuclear war future .
I've been listening on the A-bomb Radio app, but it's also on YouTube.
I listened to about 5 hours so far. It's weirdly addictive.

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.Total CIA glowie propaganda where the point of the game is to kill the President of Venezuela and also fight the Chinese PLA. At the same time it's very fun and has awesome airstrike mechanics.

I mean I can see why Venezuela was offended by this game but at the same time, it portrays the American oil company as parasites, and later when the USA and China deploy to the country it pretty much shows them both to be equally vultures picking over the corpse of VZ for their own gain. It's hardly a 'murrica fuck yeah' narrative.
