Less-Than-Surprising Praise

To say @AlisonWillmore enjoyed the new Reese Witherspoon movie is like saying a 13-year-old boy enjoys masturbation. Reese Witherspoon Plays The Year’s Most Satisfying Female Character In “Wild” The headline was sufficiently orgasmic I actually tried to read Ms. Willmore’s gooey wetness of a review and gathered that Wild is one of those dull movies […]

Interstellar

– by Wombat-socho I was extremely fortunate to get a comp ticket to see Interstellar at the National Air & Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center out by Dulles; first because the theater there is one of those ginormous IMAX installations, and second because Interstellar is a pretty good movie. Christopher Nolan deserves a lot of credit […]

Lesbian actress Ingrid Jungermann (left) and director Stewart Thorndike. Working on “Sex Trouble,” my continuing series about radical feminism, I routinely search Twitter for relevant news and commentary.

Sex Trouble: Feminists Worry That Disney Movies Are Making Girls Heterosexual

Jasmine was a victim of Aladdin’s magic patriarchal carpet. Is your daughter a victim of male oppression? Blame Aladdin — as well as The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, The Lion King and Toy Story 2. Disney cartoons and other G-rated children’s movies are full of “gendered sexuality,” subjecting women to the male “objectifying gaze,” as “heterosexuality is constructed through hetero-romantic […]

Edge Of Tomorrow

Ace Hates Him Some Spider-Man

Our hero battles an evil franchise that possesses sinister powers of luring dumb 13-year-old boys to the local multiplex: Apparently they’re making so much money with bad Spider-Man movies they’ve already greenlit sequels for 2016 and 2018. I guess that’s the ultimate in movie properties — if you can make $750 million with a bad movie, […]

Gasp! ‘Nerdgasm’ Spoiled by Discovery of Homophobia Behind ‘Ender’s Game’?

One of the most annoying habits of liberals is their tendency to confuse their political agenda with moral virtue. It’s never about the efficacy of policy with them. Instead, it’s about voting your way to Heaven: Blessed are those who vote Democrat, for they shall be called the children of Gaia, or something. So . […]

Ender’s Game

– Wombat-socho The long-awaited movie version of Orson Scott Card’s classic science fiction tale Ender’s Game hit the theaters today, and since I’ve been waiting to see it since the short story was first published, I went to see it this afternoon. tl;dr: Beautiful and sad and horrifying and wonderful. For those of you who […]
