Interesting documentary. Fascinating man. And a bit of an as*h*le. As with “The Barkley Marathon” documentary, the baby boomers may rub you the wrong way. One old geezer is convinced he saw Charles shrink to the size of a gnome … Continue reading

Bull Durham
Murray N. Rothbard (a.k.a. Mr. First Nighter)
(”Bull Durham” is briefly mentioned in this.)
Unless you're crazy about incomprehensible shuckin' and jivin'. The banal plot centers around the fact that Woody Harrelson, though white, can actually play good playground basketball. Harrelson and black actor Wesley Snipes hustle each other and other playground players, and Harrelson has a stormy relationship with a dippy Puerto Rican-Asian girl friend who spends her time trying to get on Jeopardy. Big deal. The only interesting thing about this movie is that I saw it in a neighborhood Manhattan theater. One of the guys waiting in line outside for a bus looked like a refugee from the movie itself, replete with baseball cap perched backward on his head and skate blading around the line. The guy was mortified when the bus driver wouldn't let him on. Hey, suppose they made a movie, Black Men Can't Swim? What do you think would happen?

César
Murray N. Rothbard (a.k.a. Mr. First Nighter)
(”César” is briefly mentioned in this.)
Since World War II, with only a few exceptions (usually the films of Eric Rohmer), French cinema has been, for all of us cultural reactionaries, abominable. Almost to a movie, they have been absurdist, snail's-paced, static, camera lingering lovingly on the pores of the faces of the main actors, plotless, dialog-less, morbid, and irrational. In short, aesthetically and politically leftist and avant-garde. And yet it was not always thus. French movies before World War II were often splendid: rich, buoyant, funny worldly-wise, and many of them were the marvelous comedies of the French playwright and ...

Good premise. Thrilling cinematography. Worth watching. You see, they changed the message of the novel, (which was apparently very pro-life, anti-immigration quota, and all about strong morals being necessary for a healthy society), and tried to turn it into an … Continue reading

Murray N. Rothbard (a.k.a. Mr. First Nighter)
Long-time readers know that I am decidedly not a fan of foreign language movies: not because it is a chore to read subtitles, but because they are invariably horrible examples of aggressively avant-garde, anti-bourgeois cinema. Hating as "commercial" movies that appeal to the average movie-goer, the foreign movie-maker proclaims his superior esthetic sensibility by scorning interesting plot, tight writing and directing, meaningful dialogue, glamorous photography; or colorful settings. Instead, the typical foreign movie has zero plot, minimal dialogue, and wastes enormous amounts of time on close-ups of the brooding actors' gloomy faces, all seemingly photographed in the midst of some dark and dank box. The ineffable and pointless boredom of these motion pictures are apparently supposed to embody the alleged boredom of bourgeois life. In actuality it is not life, but these infernal movies, that both embody and induce boredom

This was a pretty great film. Not gonna’ lie. It’s just sad that we can’t have these same themes in movies lead by white people and about my nation. One of the most popular animated movies (worldwide) was “Frozen” but … Continue reading

Funny show. Good commentary all in all. Still bizarre to see how far the victim mentality goes in the black community. A multimillionaire goes on stage and in each special whines about slavery and how evil whites treat him as … Continue reading
