Movie Review: “Spider-Man: Homecoming”

Posted: July 11, 2017 at 4:30 pm   /   Entertainment, Features, Liberty Shop, Politics, Sections, Top Stories

There is a moment in Spider-Man: Homecoming, where Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is at the end of his rope.  No pun intended.  He’s broken, and reduced to tearfully calling for help…fearing, at last, that it’s all over—that he’s failed: at the mission, at his life, at everything. And then…he finds himself looking into his reflection.  […]

“Look, she wants to play lumberjack, she’s gonna have to learn to handle her end of the log…!”   Sadly, screenwriter John Millius had moved on from the Dirty Harry flicks after Magnum Force.  However, the show must go on—and go on it did.  And with or without Millius, the Conservatism of the franchise remained…and […]

The Greatest Conservative Films: Magnum Force (1973)

“A man’s got to know his limitations.”   I’ll try my best to keep any spoilers vague.  For this film, part of the effect lies in the mystery of exactly who these vigilantes are.  Every single one of them. So, without further ado—Dirty Harry 2: Magnum Force. WHY IT’S A CONSERVATIVE FILM: As is often […]

“When a naked man is chasing a woman through an alley with a butcher knife…I figure he isn’t out collecting for the Red Cross.”   WHY IT’S A CONSERVATIVE FILM: “Politics is downstream from Culture.”  And to prove his point, Andrew Breitbart needed only point to some quintessential examples of certain iconic moments of pop […]

“I’ve been offered a lot in my line of work.  But never everything.”   In his masterwork Primetime Propaganda, Ben Shapiro (“Thug Life™!”) said, “You can’t beat Westerns for Conservatism.”  And so, I give you my favorite Western of all time, the original The Magnificent Seven. Rio Bravo’s close second, if you’re wondering. Quick little […]

“Late summer, autumn, 1968:  Kurtz’s patrols in the highlands coming under frequent ambush.  The camp started falling apart.  November: Kurtz orders the assassination of three Vietnamese men and one woman.  Two of the men were colonels in the South Vietnamese army.  Enemy activity in his old sector dropped off to nothing.  Guess he must have […]

Movie Review: Wonder Woman—A Hollywood Victory

Believe me, I don’t make that declaration lightly.  Conservatives have nothing—and I…mean…nothing—to fear from this film.  In point of fact…just the opposite.  Our side has every reason under the sun to rejoice, with Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman. Again, I don’t say that lightly.  I love Hollywood and cinema, I’m aware, much more than so many […]

The Greatest Conservative Films: Shaft (1971)

“Don’t ‘Tom’ me, man.” Before I focus on Shaft, I’d be remiss if I didn’t dwell on something I hinted at in my article on Jackie Brown: namely, exactly what happened to the classic Blaxploitation movement of the 1970s—why it died a sudden death. Basically: The studios got scared out of making those kinds of […]

The Greatest Conservative Films: Jackie Brown (1997)

“Is White Guilt supposed to make me forget that I’m running a business…?”   I’ve already given, in the intro to my article on Inglourious, my general defense of Quentin Tarantino—perhaps the greatest filmmaker working today.  Certainly the most innovative without being pretentious about it.  Now, we turn to Jackie Brown—the film where he first […]
