Better Watch Out – My Review

It’s been a while without a review, but this one has complications. The non-spoiled version is: this is a fucked-up movie.

A twist near the beginning sort of renders the film unable to be discussed. Who’s the bad guy? Well, I’ll save that for a little further down the page.

The movie is well-shot technically, and it plays on the nostalgia of upper-middle-class white America. It’s a Christmas movie, but when these kids are left Home Alone some twisted shit transpires.


Fresh faces from Australia, all the main characters are Aussies, with the newcomer Olivia DeJonge (obviously) standing out as a breathtaking stunner. Levi Miller has also got potential, and for his age delivers some bone-chilling psychopathy.


The film has plausibility going for it. It ditches the veneer for hard core violent realism. That is enough to give it a watch, but there’s more. It may be…

One of the mainstream media’s gatekeepers presents himself as a champion of truth over at The Intercept. I ain’t buying it for a second.

The Biggest Secret [Sic, “Bullshit”]

Risen, how can you present yourself as an authority on CIA and the “war on terror” and never acknowledge that CIA knew Al Qaeda terrorists were in the country for 16 months prior to 9/11? This is confirmed in the 2005 CIA Inspector General Report (you should know) as well as by Richard Clarke, the “Counter-Terrorism Czar” on 9/11. CIA did absolutely nothing to stop the attacks and conversely obstructed the FBI efforts to do so, as we learned from numerous FBI agents who complained about it.

How can you present the CIA with a straight face and never tell readers about the arguable HIGH TREASON that allowed the attacks to happen? There is a significant movement fighting against your brand of limited hangout, the suppression of vital facts surrounding 9/11. You, of course, make no mention of other aspects of the cover up, such as the suppression of FBI surveillance in Sarasota, and the ongoing legal battle to expose what the FBI counter-terrorism (intelligence) section also knew before the attacks.

What you present is journalistic malfeasance in order to sell books. If you called out CIA for its apparent HIGH TREASON in aiding and abetting Al Qaeda prior to 9/11, you wouldn’t be so welcome across the media to promote your wares.

I’m disgusted utterly that you don’t even bother mentioning the revelations about the Saudis, those 28 pages which you apparently couldn’t be bothered to read. The word “Saudi” appears zero times above, and that should tell readers how much stock to place in your insider expose…

Don’t get run over this year.



Yep. Just $1.50 for the funniest novel of the year.

This British import arrived, and I knew not how nor why. But it’s a marvelous period piece, and the period is 1940. It’s also a movie about making a movie, and the characters are the screenwriters.

This nuanced tale tackles the sexism of the day. The main character is a Welsh girl who is suddenly called up by the Ministry of Information to help write “the slop,” which is female dialogue for their propaganda films.


When Dunkirk inspires a heroic rescue story, the plot kicks into gear. A news article praises a pair of sisters who stole their drunken dad’s boat to join in the rescue. The government functionaries decide this is grade-A propaganda to inspire the working class to go fight the Germans.


As Catrin develops the story with her co-writers, many tangents appear. Many obstacles to production too, and some are hilarious. Catrin grows as a writer…

WOW. This fake “progressive” group has absolutely nothing to say about the Donna Brazile admissions that Hillary Clinton STOLE–FUCKING STOLE–the 2016 primary nomination from Bernie Sanders! Bernie Sanders can be considered a real “progressive,” while HIllary R. Clinton is a neoliberal warmonger and war criminal. Just the other day some ignorant denizens here were poo-pooing the idea that Shillary stole the nomination. Today, Brazile confirms it in no uncertain terms.

And the crickets chirp!


That’s the sound of hypocrisy. The sound of unethical groupthink and willful ignorance. God, I hope with every fiber of my being that John Podesta is hauled out in handcuffs in the Mueller roundup…

Baby Driver – My Review

Posted: October 14, 2017 in Joe Giambrone

I predict most people are going to buy into this and have a good time. Edgar Wright makes fluffy, inconsequential pop-tainment. It’s not about the ideas but the ride.

Baby Driver is a likable enough popcorn movie. It’s an old tale of a criminal with a heart of gold who finds love. The car action sequences are wild and well shot. Quirky people show up, nasty people, and “Baby” is the contrast to all of them.


I felt a bit hollow by the end, a definite lack of sustenance, but then again the film works on its own terms. It’s got the Hollywood/corporate mentality through and through. It’s not about offering ideas but about teasing the audience and, in the end, reinforcing the status quo. I’d argue it’s not art at all, but something other.

Wrecking Balls

The stand-up comedy novel.
