nerdgirl20 talks about her movies on DVD: part 1

nerdgirl20 is a Canadian film student who owns about 500 or 600 movies on DVD, and plans to talk about all of them.

She’s says there will be about 12 videos in this series, and she asks viewers to point out the movies that they themselves own.

In this first batch, the only one that I own is Witness. I’m sure I’ll have a lot more when she gets to science fiction and fantasy.

If they remake “Drop Dead Fred,” they should offer Phoebe Cates the role of the mother

The 1991 movie “Drop Dead Fred” is one of my favorite movies of all time. In the movie, Phoebe Cates played the daughter.

It has been announced that they will be doing a remake of the movie. I hope they offer Phoebe Cates the role of the mother. That would make it one of the more interesting remakes in recent times.

Obama had anti-Obama filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza arrested for violating campaign finance laws, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws three different times without being arrested

In August 2012, Dinesh D’Souza released 2016: Obama’s America, a movie that was critical of Obama.

In January 2014, D’Souza was arrested for violating campaign finance laws.

In May 2014, D’Souza pled guilty to violating campaign finance laws.

In September 2014, D’Souza was sentenced to live in a halfway house for eight months, pay a $30,000 fine, perform 260 days of community service, and receive counseling.

However, even though Obama himself had violated campaign finance laws on three different occasions (see here, here, and here), Obama never had himself arrested.

Numerous legal experts have said that D’Souza’s arrest was politically motivated.

Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said of D’Souza’s arrest:

“This is clearly a case of selective prosecution for one of the most common things done during elections, which is to get people to raise money for you…If they went after everyone who did this, there would be no room in jails for murderers.”

“This is an outrageous prosecution and is certainly a misuse of resources. It raises the question of why he is being selected for prosecution among the many, many people who commit similar crimes… This sounds to me like it is coming from higher places. It is hard for me to believe this did not come out of Washington or at least get the approval of those in Washington.”

Former Federal Election Commissioner David Mason said of D’Souza’s arrest:

“What struck me first was that it is unusual in cases like these for the FBI to go out and actually arrest someone, simply because it is not necessary… And even less so in this case because [D’Souza] has enough prominence that it is fairly obvious that he is not a flight risk. White-collar indictments are made lots of times without an arrest being made.”

Commenting on D’Souza’s arrest, former acting U.S. attorney general George Terwilliger of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius said that there were

“legitimate questions that could be asked about the political motivation for bringing the case.”

Dominic Gentile of Gordon Silver, an expert on the enforcement of campaign finance law, conducted extensive research on other people who had done the same thing as D’Souza, and concluded:

“Twenty thousand dollars?”I’ve never heard of a $20,000 criminal case for campaign finance violations.”

Those legal experts are correct. The real reason D’Souza was arrested was because he made an anti-Obama movie. As long as Obama never makes an anti-Obama movie, Obama will never be arrested for this three violations of campaign finance law.

Maybe the real reason Obama smiled is because he recognized a quote from “The Empire Strikes Back”

This video is titled “Watch Obama smile as soon as Robert Bergdahl praises Allah.”

The description states:

Walid and Theodore Shoebat say that while the Obama administration is proudly touting how it was able to free an American soldier who was captured by the Taliban, what no one picked is the fact that Obama SMILED as soon as he heard the most famous war cry of Islam, “bismillah al-rahman al-rahim,” Arabic for “in the name of Allah the most gracious, the most merciful.”

The movie trailer for “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn” contains a major spoiler!

This is the trailer for “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn,” a new Robin Williams movie that opens on May 23, 2014.

There’s a major spoiler at 1:36 in the trailer.

This spoiler can only decrease one’s enjoyment of the movie, and discourage people from seeing it, thus causing the movie studio to lose money. I’m not sure why they put the spoiler in the trailer, but it was a really, really, really bad idea.

Here’s the trailer. If you want to watch it but don’t want to see the spoiler, then stop it before it gets to 1:36.

“The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete,” praised by Michelle Obama, is actually quite good

As I’ve explained in this 40,000+ word post, I am no fan of President Obama. So when I recently read this article where Michelle Obama praised the recent movie “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete,” I was expecting it to be left wing propaganda.

Boy, was I wrong.

Having just watched the movie, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is heavily critical of heroin use, prostitution, and child molestation, and that it portrays education and work in a positive light. There’s even a scene that praises a big chain, corporate supermarket as being far superior to a mom and pop grocery store.

The two lead characters are boys named Mister and Pete, who are ages 13 and 10, respectively.

Mister’s mother is a heroin addicted prostitute. One day, Mister goes to the store, buys a newspaper, brings it home, circles a bunch of help wanted ads, and shows it to his mother. He tells her that he circled the ones that she’s qualified for, and that they probably wouldn’t care about background checks. She objects, saying that those jobs are beneath her.

The point of this scene is that any legal, legitimate job, even one with low wages, is deserving of respect. Her rejection of such jobs is portrayed in a negative light. The fact that she’d rather work as a prostitute is seen through the eyes of her son as being very sad.

In the real world, the radical left hates big chain supermarkets. For example, in Chicago, radical leftist activists prevented Wal-Mart from opening a new supermarket. So, Wal-Mart opened the new supermarket one block outside the city. 24,500 people applied for the store’s 325 job openings, and 98% of them listed Chicago as their address. Clearly, these radical leftist activists do not care about those people who applied to work at Wal-Mart, or about the people who are now happily choosing to shop there. These radical leftists are acting against the interests of the people who live in Chicago.

By contract, “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete” portrays a big chain supermarket in a very positive light. In the movie, the local mom and pop grocery store has rotting fruit, and is run a guy who falsely accuses Mister of being a thief. By contrast, the big chain supermarket in the movie is shown to have an abundance of high quality food, and the employee that Mister talks with is quite friendly toward him.

In real life, a movie director named Roman Polanski drugged and raped a 13 year old girl. More than 100 people in the film industry, including Woody Allen, Terry Gilliam, John Landis, David Lynch, and Martin Scorsese, signed a petition calling for Polanski to be released from jail. This is sick, filthy, and disgusting.

By contrast, the child molestor in “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete” is portrayed in a very negative light. The devastating  effects that molestation has on its victim, Pete, is revealed several times in the movie when Pete seems to have an obsession with “privacy.”

My point here is that conservatives and libertarians should not dismiss this movie just because it was praised by Michelle Obama. This is an excellent film, and it deserves to be seen.

Here’s the 1991 movie “Drop Dead Fred” with Phoebe Cates and Carrie Fisher

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this movie.

On the surface, it’s a very funny comedy, with lots of great slapstick.

At a deeper level, it’s a psychological drama about a woman who is trying to stand up to her bullies and take control of her life.

Critics hated – absolutely hated – this movie. But it’s got a strong cult following.

Rated PG-13 for sexual references, small amounts of profanity, and mild violence.

Movie review: Phantom of the Opera (1943)

I’m shocked – shocked – to see certain things in Phantom of the Opera that I did not see in other classic Universal monster films! For one thing, this movie has vermilion. It also has chartreuse and lavender. It has azure. It has ochre and magenta. It has aquamarine, maroon, and burnt umber. It has turquoise and saffron. Why, this movie even has crimson – even the Dracula movie didn’t have crimson! I tell you – seeing these things in this movie was totally unexpected. It defied my expectations of what I thought was a common characteristic of all of the films in this series. My preconceived notions and assumptions have been desecrated. I suppose that I will get over this eventually, but it will definitely take some time.

Here’s the brilliantly intelligent 2009 science fiction movie “Moon”

I’m not going to give away any plot spoilers in this post, although I will approve spoiler comments for the comment section.

What I will say in this post is that this move is very cerebral and highly thought provoking. It’s slow paced, calm, and quiet. There is plenty of breathing room for contemplation. The character development is exceptionally well done, and some of the scenes are genuinely heartbreaking and moving. And then when I watched it  a second time, I loved it even more.

You can watch the movie in its entirely at this link. I use the Firefox browser, and did not have any problems when I watched it as this link. I did get a few pop ups before the movie started, which I was easily able to close without any problems. Do not click on anything that has the words “play” or “download” because those buttons are not what they claim to be – they are actually links to ads. However, the arrow that’s on the middle of the film image, and the arrow that’s directly at the bottom left of the film image, do work, and will make the movie play.

Movie review: “Elysium” is implausible, because it’s based on a medical device manufacturer that does not employ any salespeople

Elysium has too many loud, noisy action scenes, and not enough calm, quiet, reflective scenes of thoughtful contemplation. It didn’t have any lines of dialogue that I can see myself wanting to quote in the future. None of the characters were particularly interesting. And if I was a child, I couldn’t see myself wanting to buy any of the action figures that might be based on this movie.

The machine that instantly cures cancer seems perfectly plausible. However, in the entire movie, we never find out the name of the corporation that manufactures this machine. And apparently, there is no team of trained salespeople traveling all over the world trying to sell this machine to hospitals in big cities. And that brings up the most unrealistic thing about this movie: Since when has there ever been a medical device manufacturer that did not employ any salespeople?

In this movie, there is no Bill Gates-type character who donates huge amounts of his own money to help the poor get medical care. In this movie, there are no rich people who massage their supersized egos by having entire hospital wings named in honor of their massive donations.

While it’s easy for me to imagine that a bunch of rich people would want to live in their own private space station, there’s no way that every rich person would want to live there – there would always be some holdouts who preferred to remain on earth. But in this movie, there are no holdouts.

If they wanted to make a point about poor people not being able to afford health care, the following would have been a lot more realistic: a poor person gets cancer. They go to the hospital, where one of these machines instantly cures their cancer. Then they get a ridiculously large bill that they could never possibly afford to pay. They lose their house. Their life savings is wiped out. They declare bankruptcy. That would be realistic.

But the idea that on the entire earth, there wouldn’t be even one hospital that had one of these machines, is completely ridiculous.

The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon (hilarious trailer for a movie that doesn’t actually exist)

The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon is a trailer for a movie that doesn’t actually exist. It’s the trailer itself that is the complete work. It’s ten minutes long, brilliantly hilarious, and violent enough that the fake opening says it’s for Restricted audiences, i.e., if it were an actual movie, it would be rated-R. So it’s definitely not for young children, the squeamish, or anyone else who might be offended by such content. Personally, I loved it.

Open letter to Roger Ebert: Please read this and explain how you can still support President Obama

August 18, 2012

Dear Roger,

Before I get to the political stuff, I’d like to point out that as far as I’m aware, you have never reviewed “Drop Dead Fred” or “Princess Caraboo,” films which I consider to contain Phoebe Cates’s two best performances. Please review them.

In the 2008 United States election, I wrote in Ron Paul for President. In the 2012 election, I will be voting for Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. Those who are of a more leftist persuasion than myself might want to consider voting for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Roger, please read this list of things that Obama has done, and then explain how you can still support him:
