Who Was Your Favorite Scrooge?

So, now that the Christmas season is in full swing and there’s a movie in theaters about the writing of A Christmas Carol, it seems like a good time to ask you, fellow Threedonians, what is your favorite screen version of Ebenezer Scrooge?

Everyone remembers the classic versions, of course, the ones we grew […]

Tuesday Open Thread

Last night I gave a speech at our leadership institute entitled “Civility in Uncivil Times” the gist of which is that we are not necessarily more uncivil than other times in our past (as the above cartoon printed by Andrew Jackson supporters in 1828 attests — ditto JQA’s followers hounding Mrs. Jackson to her […]

Doug Wilson nails the heart of the gun control debate over at Blog and Mablog.

Liberals Are Failing In The Culture But They Don't Care

Over the weekend, the Hollywood Left suffered not one, but two high-profile flops. The 2017 Emmys, which were basically a three-hour anti-Republican bash-fest, had their lowest ratings of all time.

So actor Ed Skrein, who is best known for playing the villain in Deadpool, was recently cast to play a character named Ben Daimio in the next Hellboy movie. However, in the comics Daimio is part Asian, and once it got out that an all-white actor was playing him, the news was met with […]

Primary Colors

“Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world! Red and yellow black and white they are precious in His sight! Jesus loves the little children of the world!”

Some of the biggest errors are often mingled with, intentionally or unintentionally, some of the greatest truths. We used to sing this little […]

Why Action Movies Suck Now

Our blogfather recently wrote an article titled 9 Ways Hollywood Destroyed The Movie Business. It’s a pretty good list, and Nolte covers a lot of the big-picture reasons why movies haven’t been very good lately.
