We are an anti-woke (but normie friendly) movie review site and content curator that helps you parse through the BS.
This means that there are LGBT tag(s) on the IMDb page for that movie or show.
For example, “Ambulance” has the rainbow flag here:
When clicked it shows the tags matched from the IMDb keywords here:
Often this is a false positive or a very brief scene so take it with a grain of salt. If it causes concern, explore the links for more information. For example, when you check the IMDb parental guide it will tell you that there is a gay couple kissing at some point:
To be clear, here at ZR we don’t really care about LGBT stuff. There are several LGBT critics featured on the site. But it seems that the slippery slope wasn’t a fallacy after all. The ceaseless pushing didn’t end after same sex marriage. Just sayin…
And at the very least, most normal audience members simply don’t want this crap forced onto their children. So use these content warnings at your own discretion. A good rule of thumb is if you see “sex“, “transgender” , or multiple gay tags instead of just 1, then it’s likely a significant aspect of the plot. Otherwise, don’t worry about it too much. Even harmless classics like “GroundHog Day” have some gay character somewhere:
If you have suggestions on how to improve our LGBT Content Warning, please comment below. And for transparency’s sake, here is the list of words we search in IMDb’s tags:
If you think any should be removed or added, comment below.
This is the same as the LGBT Content warnings, and with the same method of searching IMDb tags. (See above for more info.) The illuminati pyramid is just a good icon for “woke” because of the eyeball being awake, and because woke people are useful idiots for globohomo elites. But this isn’t a conspiracy tag for MK Ultra stuff. And in all honesty, isn’t very accurate because woke stuff is usually about how they depict topics, not the mere presence of certain topics. Which is why it says “possibly woke elements” and not “woke elements.” A movie with sexism or racism can be very based.
Likewise, it may be important to recognize how movies pushing liberal values back then gradually slipped into what we have now. But it’s pretty obvious that a “strong female character” in a movie from 1939 is not going to be very woke. And a lot of anime is chock-full of strong female characters or environmentalist/anti-capitalist themes, but they’re the farthest thing from woke.
So use this content warning with a massive grain of salt. Or a really small one… whichever one implies more skepticism and caution.
And for transparency’s sake, here is the list of keywords we scan:

The “boycott suggestion” is meant to be a way for us to consolidate our efforts in “voting with our dollars.” Obviously, Hollywood has proven that they will sacrifice profits for the sake of their agenda, but they’re not as monolithic as you’d think. And people still respond to incentives.
So the 3 options are:
Pay to watch:
This movie is worth your time, and you should support the creators financially so we get more content like it. An example would be any Mel Gibson movie or the dark comedy, “The Hunt” which lampoons leftist elites.
Watch it AND give them money.
Watch if free:
This movie is entertaining, but you shouldn’t reward the creators for whatever reason. An example might be the movie “Don’t Look Up” which was very preachy but not unwatchable. There was room for interpretation by the audience, and the social commentary wasn’t horribly biased. However, the film’s cast is full of anti-White sh*tlibs with Trump Derangement Syndrome. Whether it’s futile to boycott them or not is up for debate. But why give money to people who hate you?
That’s when you’d click the “Watch Now” button and choose from one of the “Free” links:
( Use at your own risk. ZeitgeistReviews does not endorse any of the links and we don’t condone piracy. And we definitely discourage you from using this Reddit thread that shows you all of the places to pirate movies & tv. )
Watch it BUT don’t give them money.
This means the movie wasn’t even worth your time. This could be because the film was just pretentious or poorly made. Or it could be so preachy and so full of Woke crap that you’ll want to pull your hair out half way through.
An example of this might be the 2016 all female “Ghostbusters” reboot.
Don’t watch it AND don’t give them money.
The point of the site is not to write reviews from a political viewpoint. ( Although that does happen a lot. ) The point is to have a collection of reviews from people who are anti-Woke. Mainly right-of-center. But really, it’s just a place for uncensored reviews so you can have an accurate populist aggregate rating. Why? Because all of our competitors are slowly neutering their own user base.
The biggest offender is Rotten Tomatoes. They manipulate, purge, and restrict reviews all the time in order to protect their woke orthodoxy.
( Examples: 1, 2, 3, 4 )
Netflix simply removed its ratings all together after Amy Schumer’s special bombed.
And YouTube recently removed its dislike feature after Santa Inc was disliked into oblivion.
Last but not least, IMDb quietly added a new weighting system after some simp complained about the ratio of female critics, so now many IMDb scores are manipulated if they are ever overwhelmingly negative for a woke show.
All of these sites blame “review bombing” and assume it must be trolls. Which to be fair, may be the case here and there. But they’re so trigger happy and defensive that honest distaste for a film gets censored just the same.
We welcome trivial reviews with no mention of politics. Don’t worry about finding some clever hot take. Just think of ZR as a populist aggregate.
First, your arguments are in bad faith and we reject your framing.
Second, don’t try your “hurr durr I thought you loved kissing Big Business ass and were hyper individualists” BS. We are localists, communitarians, Paleo-Cons, or whatever you wanna’ call us. Not dogmatic shills with an undying loyalty to laissez-faire Crony Capitalism.
Besides, it’s basic game theory. We’d much rather not think about this and let everyone go about their business. Unfortunately, we’ve been shrugging things off for so long that now every commercial makes the White Male the butt of the joke, and every movie is full of insane Woke propaganda. Because you guys black list, and we don’t. Because others work as a group while we compete as individuals.
Time to balance things out.
The shortcut was always to just watch foreign stuff like anime. When there’s a badass female or Black character, you know there’s no agenda. It was just a stylistic choice. But even that is being subverted because the Center & Rightwing refuse to fight back against the obnoxiously loud minority of woke people ruining everything.
