It’s come to hit multiple themes:
dynasties and wealth spending v trendy riches and conspicuous consumption
bloodlines and family being more important than how you make money (modern people uplift their job title above their damn spouse)
the parents as the core of the family unit, not the children
how respect is connected to fear…. well, it is!
tolerance for idiots (who do not know they’re idiots)
multiculturalism – yes, a little bit of that, even just across classes
nationalism and belonging to a culture or time period versus international non-identity (usually channeling into brands over a religion – people literally stan over toaster models nowadays)
persecution based on appearance
needing to fix messes caused by outsiders, super competence being viewed externally as “creepy” (tell me those kids don’t respect their parents, they even have disciplined staff) and their reaction times are better than Special Ops
use of “magic” (IQ) to get what they want, despite attracting a lot of envy
gender roles – Morticia is sexy, smart and maternal (hourglass dresses), Gomez is rich, loyal and paternal (he wears a smoking jacket and smokes a cigar) – his wealth allows them to outsource a lot of childcare and spend time together, strengthening the marriage
plenty of quality family time, even family dinners (values, as one film was called)
emphasis is inter-generational AND in doing so, more individual (the kids encouraged by the parents to find themselves in a safe environment, because they’ll have time to make mistakes)
they are the educated gentrifiers – they own a damn leatherbound library
you can’t cancel people who don’t rely on your approval, maybe some anti-white person would call the child-nappers, faux concerned about Gomez
delighting in the old-fashioned (dead things is the extreme of this, including archaic notions of culture and ancestry)
despite all else, they’re the only happy people – maybe they dress for the funeral of Western Civ?
Hell, I’d watch THAT film.
Instead of fighting one another like the State wants, they support one another.
It’s anti-propaganda. Does Gomez seem annoyed by Morticia or “scared” of marriage?
Do the kids hate spending time at home?
Does Morticia want to do charity work outside the home?
Is Gomez sleeping with a secretary?
Are the elderly relations pushed aside like corpses already?
Are the kids told to shut up and go away, doing dangerous stuff without supervision?
It’s amazing really.
Imagine if they set one film in the ghetto. They couldn’t do it. Too obvious.
“OMG Wednesday told that girl to read a book!”
