From The Trailer Park - The Magnificent Seven

Yes, it’s a remake, but it’s got a great cast and it looks like it could be a lot of fun. As Western remakes go, here’s hoping it will be more 3:10 To Yuma than The Lone Ranger.

Stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Matt Bomer, Peter Sarsgaard.

The Walking Thread: Twice As Far (S6, E14)

With all due respect to (and complete agreement with) what Rufus wrote the other day, this is what I wish the President had said on Tuesday:

If you haven’t seen it before, it’s a brilliant video, and well worth 7 minutes of your time.

While I can cite statistics all day long showing […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - The Most Conservative Movie of the Year (no spoilers)

So I finally got around to seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (Yeah, I’m not exactly on the cutting edge of keeping up with movie releases, but that’s what happens when you have a little kid in the house.)
