A Foken Review: This is England

ThisIsEnglandThumbby Brad Nelson
This is England is small little film. But rather than damning it with faint praise, this describes a movie that is modest in scope (there are very few, if any, car crashes and camera shakes), and yet is genuine in content. More » • (871 views)

Fifty years and still celebrating the day of the “Dream” speech? Come on. We don’t celebrate the “day that will live in infamy” speech. We don’t gather for the “ask not what your country can do for you” anniversary More » • (1210 views)

Movie Review: The Last Airbender

LastAirbenderThumbby Brad Nelson
I watched The Last Airbender fairly recently. It went against all my Spider-senses to do so. But a friend thought that I might like it. And, granted, it is a visual feast. More » • (804 views)

Movie Review: The Last Picture Show

LastPictureShowThumbby Brad Nelson
The buzz on this that I’ve read is that this movie helped usher in the era of “realism.” I’m going to place an asterisk on that notion because “realism” too often means, in today’s postmodern parlance, simply showing America and Americans in as poor a light as possible. More » • (802 views)

Book Review: “Garden of Beasts” by Jeffery Deaver

GardenOfBeastsThumbby Brad Nelson
I don’t normally read spy thrillers, but a conservative friend recommended Garden of Beasts to me. But I’d say it’s equal parts spy thriller and historical novel. The books recommended  for further reading at the end is huge. More » • (916 views)

Movie Review: Where the Sidewalk Ends

SidewalkEndsThumbby Brad Nelson
A truly classic bit of film noir, this one directed by the renowned Mr. Freeze, Otto Preminger. (Anatomy of a Murder and In Harm’s Way are among his great films. Laura and Angel Face are a couple I need to watch sometime.) More » • (866 views)

Movie Review: The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974)

PelhamThumbby Brad Nelson
A magnificent dark comedy masquerading as a heist film. Were the Coen Brothers making films in the 70’s? No movie fan, let alone Walter Matthau fan, should miss this. More » • (802 views)
