In the pursuit of an antidote and counter-programming to the daily ugliness from Trump, we introduce The Anti-Trump Film Festival, presenting clips from a variety of films that confront the Trumpesque themes of racism, oppression, corruption, etc. and affirm the traits that are best in human beings.
American Sniper is the first truly great film made about the war in Iraq. It is not a celebration of war; or a call to action against Muslims. It is a sad film about the bravery of warriors in battles whose purpose is lost in the fog of war.
With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.
The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
This Year's The Academy of Motion PIctures Arts and Sciences offered up what it believes to be its best. So For Your Consideration.......
As 2014 drifts into history and 2015 begins, let's take a look back at our favorite sounds from the past and forward to our playlists for the coming year!
My father was Noel Purcell, Actor, Comedian and Freeman of the City of Dublin. I do want to share the real man behind the Stage and Screen star, his pride in his work, his incredible humility for all his success but most of all, I want to show him as MY DAD!
BOO! Welcome gouls and goulettes, vampiras and vampires, ghosts, werewolves and spirits! Halloween is but a few days away and to help get in the "spirit," (ha-ha) this weekend's thread is dedicated to all things spooky!
In Dineesh D’Souza’s newest (and awful) “psuedo-documentary”, on September 11, 1777 (yeah! 9/11) General George Washington is gunned down by a British assassin and in the next few moments we see the Statue of Liberty and the Faces of Mt. Rushmore crumble like dust into the air
The Story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons may have mixed reviews but for a theater full of baby boomers who joined the cast in singing Sherri during the closing credits it was a Five Star experience.

Weekend Music Thread – Please Mr. Postman

This weekend's music thread is dedicated to our wonderful postal workers and stopping this assault on America. Songs about letters, writing, communicating, talking, listening, and getting the word out one way or another is what we're carrying door-to-door this weekend.

Can the Freudian Bull Doc, Trump is a Mobster

I've known the son of a powerful New York Mafia don. He told me, "They started telling me when I was a brat kid that everyone is just as crooked as everyone else.

Protect, Isolate, Quarantine (Oh, Louis Gohmert Was Right!)

Mask-wearing alone, though essential, will not stop the pandemic. It has to be part of a comprehensive plan, and it has to be proven in the laboratory as effective. But, even in a detail as obvious as this, there is no plan. Anyone can make and sell a mask.

Weekend Music Thread – Don’t Stop Me Now

This weekend our theme is for songs about up and down, stopping, going and even crashing...as Trump has done to the economy and our democracy...and is finally catching up to him in 94 days.
