* Most of the pre-1970s driver's education films were notorious for this. Keeping in mind this was an era long before HIPAA and privacy laws, many of these films used actual footage from real fatal accidents (many provided by state patrol agencies). An example is the 1959 film "Signal 30," which showed the bloody aftermath of several accidents; repeatedly, viewers were shown broken and mangled bodies, and at least twice the victims were charred so badly dental records were needed to identify the body. Throughout, the narrator related what caused each of these accidents -- speed, reckless driving, failure to obey stop signs, racing trains to the crossing, falling asleep behind the wheel and more -- and relating a very clear moral: Even one mistake behind the wheel, no matter how seemingly minor, could be your last ... and it surely could prove deadly for innocent people as well. The fact that many "ScareEmStraight" driver education films of the era came without disclaimers (and oftentimes, the teacher never warned his students) made these films even more anvilicious.

* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' is not subtle about its [[http://www.shakesville.com/2015/05/liss-and-ana-talk-about-mad-max.html feminist]] message. The bad guys are all men. Every woman is a good guy. Even the title character is a SupportingProtagonist to a strong, independent woman who ultimately takes power from a patriarchal regime. An early ArmorPiercingQuestion is "who killed the world?" with the implication that it's the men in power who are the cause of the Crapsack World of the setting and the movie makes no attempt to claim otherwise.

** ''Film/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly'': Two messages to hammer home: TheVietnamWar was bad-''bad''-''BAD'' (and anyone who thinks otherwise is either dumb, a {{Jerkass}}, or otherwise seriously misguided), and [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped we must take care of our veterans.]]

-->'''Nelson Mandela:''' Someone gave me this note when I was leaving Boi Patong, and I want to read it to you. ''[reads from note]'' It says, "No peace; do not talk about peace. We have had enough. Please, Mr. Mandela, no peace. Give us weapons, not peace." ''[puts note aside]'' Here is my answer There is only one way forward...and that is peace. I know that is not what you want to hear, but there is no other way. I am your leader, and as long as I am your leader I am going to give you leadership! As long as I am your leader, I am going to tell you, always, when you are wrong. And I tell you now, you are wrong. I have given my life to the struggle, I have been willing to die, I have lost 27 years of my life in prison. But I tell you now, I have forgiven them. If I can forgive them, then you can forgive them. We cannot win a war, but we can win an election. So, my people; stay home, be peaceful, and when Election Day comes...vote!

* In ''Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'', Nelson Mandela gives an especially anviliscious televised speech near the end of the film.

** Disagree. With the chorus of anvils about how war is bad and Americans are evil, I found this movie to be about how Americans are the dicks Gotham (Western society) deserves, but not the one it needs right now, so we'll hate them because they're not our hero, they're our reckless, arrogant, stupid guardians.

** Which borders on a FantasticAesop because you'd have to be a [[BeavisAndButthead complete and total idiot]] to actually eat nothing but fast food for an entire month, and to force feed it to yourself even if you're full, and to suddenly switch to such a diet from a completely antithetical diet. The [[ComeforTheXStayForTheY secondary bits of the movie]] that don't involve Morgan force-feeding himself, while not exactly even-handed, are far more sensible.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' doesn't make any effort to hide Nolan's skepticism of the Occupy movements.
