I confess, I did a slight cheat for this list. I caught two movies over Friday and Saturday from 2014 that I am going to let slip in. Otherwise these are 2014 movies that I saw in the 2014 year. 10. Tusk // Kevin Smith Tusk is an odd animal. … Continue Reading My Top Ten Movies of 2014 List Lacking Original Title
So…Sony gave in and canceled the Interview in it’s entirety. The so stupidly named Guardians of Peace and North Korea beat the studio. People who believe in the freedom of speech, the right to protest and freedom of expression should be chilled. And yet, I am seeing some folks opting … Continue Reading The Error of Defeat
When people hacked the private accounts of young actresses in Hollywood and distributed naked photos not meant for public consumption, people were outraged. There were angry writings about the criminality and mistreatment of these women. And rightly so. What was done then was a criminal and wrong act. Yet, when … Continue Reading If Sony Were a Pretty Girl…
Oh, Gary Oldman. I love you. I really do. I see you are in a movie and I get excited to see that performance. You were one of the reasons I did not totally refuse to see the RoboCop reboot. But really…if you want to be critical of the restrictions … Continue Reading Bigotedly Correct
So, part one of my thoughts on the situation surrounding the Rosa Parks of our generation. You might have heard about this. For reasons unknown to me, Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson felt the need to expound on who would be accepted into heaven. He was quoting the Bible and then … Continue Reading The Sound of Silence
So, recently, a bit of controversy reared it’s ugly head. It is not the first time. Not for the same person. It is a controversy born out of jealousy and more than a little sexism. It should be noted that two very celebrated writers currently working in comics are Kelly … Continue Reading Main Ingredients: Jealousy and Sexism
I have been thinking about Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalia recent commentary regarding the Voting Rights Act. A reminder: And this last enactment, not a single vote in the Senate against it. And the House is pretty much the same. Now, I don’t think that’s attributable to the fact that … Continue Reading For the Colorblind
I will be honest…if I were to write a book about the worst parts of Christian music? Carman would probably be the penultimate chapter. I am not a fan (though in my pre-teens I was). Among the host of problems? The weird presentation of Jesus as an ass kicking hero … Continue Reading Nothing Witty To Say
I will have to look this up…but has a sitting Pope ended his reign in resignation? I am curious…this is right on the heels of the documentary Silence In the House of God airing…connected?
So, some groups complained about this ad: They decried it for being to Sexy. And yeah, the ad teases. But compared with last year’s Carls Jr Ad? This is positively tame. Yeah, you see Upton’s bountiful cleavage. But she is clothed in pretty regular clothes. Her cutoffs are not short … Continue Reading I Don’t Get It
You should totally support Adam Warrock. He’s great.
If there is one thing you should know about me? It is this: Hobo With a Shotgun was waaaaay to arthouse for me. So, once I wrap up my Marvel Movie Roundup, probably in 2016 (at my current rate), I will be starting new project. It will be a seven … Continue Reading Criterions…
First? Scott Stapp of Creed endorsed Mitt Romney this week. Poor Mitt. He never gets the cool musicians. Anyways, four years ago, Focus on the Family released this: A Letter From 2012, Obama’s America. The above link analyzes the predictions. Unsurprisingly…almost none of it is true. So here is my … Continue Reading A Letter From The Future
And the interview…not really related to anything political…but Olivia Wilde seems able to keep up with Stewart joke wise. And she is pretty stunning.
Sarah Palin thinks Akin should realize “This is not going in his favor, so you have to step aside from self, from yourself, your desire to get in there and serve and do what you believe is right, and you have to, in a sense, take one for the team,” … Continue Reading A Couple of Things That Jumped Out At Me
I realize the first portion of this might irritate some….feel free to jump to the 3:39 mark, which is why I put this up for amusement today.
