The Contemptible Citizen Kane
Where we expose the insipid Orson Welles movie, as a rankling propaganda piece. It is surprising they were able to get away clean, with this cover-up and whitewash, and hardly a soul seems to have jumped in to condemn the rotten pestilence. But nothing should surprise you any more. In fact, the people who did step up were censored, mocked, and subjected to all the usual hysteria and cover-ups.
At the Movies…
Here's a list of over 300 movies viewed over the years, with numeric ratings and summaries. These are, for the large part, films that were on someone's "recommended" list. This makes for a nice reference that can be expanded over time.
Rating the James Bond Movies
You can't expect movie critics to be reliable guides, if only because they aren't truly unbiased, but what a disappointment when you go see some dud on a critic's recommendation. It's still irritating to think of some of those stinkers, many years later. Why do we even have critics, when most of them can't figure out the meaning of some movies?
Shades of Things to Come 2
It doesn't seem to matter what certain protected businesses do, they know they can count on a bailout. For example: General Motors (GM). Like certain other manufacturers, it produced millions upon millions of junk cars. It was willful in its disdain for the consumer. But it skated clear, dumped a bunch of obligations, and poked its ugly head up again, thanks to government. It is legally a different company, but with mostly the same old idiots at the helm, so what's changed?
