Movie Review: Elysium (2013)

ElysiumThumbby Brad Nelson   1/3/14
Unless a truly egregious bit of cultural pollution comes along (such as James Cameron’s Avatar), I’ve gotten out of the habit of reviewing bad movies. Life is just too short. If one had to comment on all the noise in this degraded Leftist culture, there wouldn’t be much time to do anything else. More » • (1804 views)

All Things Hedy

HedyThumbby Brad Nelson   1/2/14
I’ve been trying to find a good Hedy Lamarr movie. She’s a favorite of mine — a mild infatuation — if only because she is one of the most beautiful women ever to grace the silver screen. More » • (1948 views)

Too Much Government

DontTreadThumbby Steve Lancaster   1/2/14
Good Morning fellow criminals. I say this because before the day is out everyone reading this will be in violation of a law, statute, or regulation with the force of law. With the New Year over 40,000 new laws in the US and at least 100,000 new regulations go into effect. More » • (1971 views)

Movie Review: Tombstone (1993)

Tombstoneby Brad Nelson   1/1/14
Hicks and Hudson (Bill Paxton and Michael Biehn) from 1986’s Aliens reunite in this retelling of the O.K. Corral story. My favorite film of this event is 1957’s Gunfight at the O.K. Corral with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. But the Russell/Kilmer effort is a close second. More » • (3648 views)

A New Year’s Meditation

NewYearby Glenn Fairman   12/31/13
Perched over the precipice separating one year from the next, I am tempted to shout out a cry of relief, considering what tragedies have occurred under 2013’s doleful watch. Indeed, death and dismay have attended my door. More » • (1369 views)

Go Tell It On The Mountain

Pentatonixby Deana Chadwell    12/29/13
This year, as our family celebrated Christmas, our background music featured the new hit a cappella group Pentatonix. My granddaughters entertained us by lip-synching to Little Drummer Boy and Go Tell it on the Mountain – a rendition that made the most of the song’s African American origins. More » • (1632 views)

The “G”-Men (1935)

GMenThumbby Brad Nelson   12/29/13
This time Jimmy Cagney is on the right side of the law in this film about the early days of the FBI. The days are indeed early; the “G”-men don’t even carry guns. They’re just getting organized in the fight against crime where crossing state lines has been the criminal’s best friend. More » • (2203 views)

Jesustarian

LibJesusby Steve Lancaster  12/28/13
Jesus was the first Libertarian. There it is said, but does that make it so? There are undoubted thousands perhaps millions who would contend with that statement and have excellent reasons to dispute based on scripture and two thousand years of history. More » • (1498 views)
