YMMV / Red State

  • Award Snub: Even Kevin Smith, who's known to be incredibly humble about his own movies, was annoyed that Michael Parks wasn't nominated for a "Best Actor" Oscar, despite his personal efforts to make it happen (he had the film screened for a week at Quentin Tarantino's personal theater just to make it eligible).
  • Catharsis Factor: A psudo-meta example. Seeing characters loosely based on the Westborough Baptist Church get gunned down and eventually hauled off to jail is highly enjoyable for anyone who's ever had to put up with the real WBC's hate speech.
