"war porn"

"Food porn" isn't exactly a "guilty pleasure."  It's food that's
enjoyable but bad for you.

Otherwise, the would-be intellectual who wrote the IMDb review seems
to imply, in context, that _The Longest Day_ was made for morons in
accordance with the presumed capitalist imperative to glorify war
unstintingly for the masses.

That makes it easier to start more wars, boosting fat-cat profits (for
cigars and top hats) while diverting and eliminating the disgruntled,
trouble-making poor on both sides. Heh heh.
