* D. W. Griffith. Anyone who has taken film school and been forced to watch his films, from ''Film/BrokenBlossoms'' to ''Film/BirthOfANation'', knows that the father of modern cinema was not exactly a master of subtlety.

* ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' is about how the only thing that matters in life is to stop dreaming about travelling the world and experiencing life outside the place where you grow up, because it's your duty to settle down, raise a family and behave yourself.

** Explained better [[Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader in the book]], where Lewis specifies that it's Eustace's greed that turns him into a dragon, not taking the gold. So far as Lucy's wish that she were more attractive, the movie has her wish that she were as beautiful as her sister, which is [[RulesLawyerGenie reinterpreted as her wishing she ''were'' Susan]]. The intended message is "BeYourself, don't worry about your looks," but the sequence does turn it into a bit of a SpaceWhaleAesop.

-->'''Gary Johnson''': "[[{{Eagleland}} We're]] dicks! We're [[DestructiveSaviour reckless]], [[ItsAllAboutMe arrogant]], [[StopHelpingMe stupid]] dicks! And the [[FunWithAcronyms Film Actor's Guild]] are pussies! And [[UsefulNotes/NorthKorea Kim Jong Il]] is an [[{{Jerkass}} asshole]]! Pussies don't like dicks, because [[MightMakesRight pussies get fucked by dicks]], but ''[[BlackAndGreyMorality dicks also fuck assholes]]''. Assholes who just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think that [[PeaceConference they can deal with assholes their way]], but [[GoodIsImpotent the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick]]... [[ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption with some balls]]. The problem with dicks is that sometimes [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill they fuck too much]], or [[DisproportionateRetribution fuck when it isn't appropriate]] - and [[WhatTheHellHero it takes a pussy to show them that]]. But sometimes, [[StrawCharacter pussies get so full of shit that they become assholes themselves]]... [[{{Metaphorgotten}} because pussies are only a half-inch away from assholes]]. I don't know much about this crazy world, but I do know, that if you don't let us ''fuck'' this asshole, we're going to get our dicks ''and'' our pussies all covered in shit!"

* 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.
