Well, it happened. As the liberals began to write their “final” obituaries for the honor, integrity, and independence of the highest court in the land and the conservatives began salivating at getting a big judicial victory of their own… as legal scholars (of which everyone was today) and cable news pundits began to wonder about what would happen to an individual-mandate-less ObamaCare bill between now and election day… the Court did what the Supreme Court so often does – surprise … →
“Movies are a fad. Audiences really want to see live actors on a stage.” -Charlie Chaplin Ok so Charlie was a little off. Not only have movies proven to not be a fad, they have evolved into these grand events in society. The summer movie season has been king since the late 1970′s and today I’m going to examine what I would consider to be the top 10 years for summer movies. As this year’s crop of summer movies is … →
Well it was certainly nice to see Elizabeth Banks is back as a human after playing the role of cotton candy in The Hunger Games movie.
On the way to work this morning “Dear John” by the lovely and talented Taylor Swift came on my radio was deliberately listened to on my iPod. This is not the first time I have heard it intentionally scrolled to Taylor Swift’s album Speak Now to select this gem on my way to work. But today, it struck a much different chord. Instead of animatedly singing along and stopping when I got to red lights to avoid embarrassment, I actually … →
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. I own approximately eight movies. Two of them are Baz Luhrmann films that I will speak of another time. Two are suspense thrillers. Two are 90s’ teen flicks. One is Shawshank Redemption. And the last, my dearies, is The Sandlot. Also known as the best movie ever made in the world.
“I wanna date you so hard and marry the f-ck out of you.” These are the words One-F-Jef said to me last night during the latest installment of The Bachelorette. You probably thought he was talking to Emily, but you were wrong. His skinny jeans were looking at me. And his outer wrist tattoo? That’s of my given name, Elizabeth. In case you missed it.
THE TRUE VILLAINY OF KING JAMES: HOW I RESPECT THE MAN, BUT WILL (PROBABLY) ALWAYS ROOT AGAINST THE MAN I’ve often argued that every person’s views on sports, college and professional sports teams, and rooting interests stems from a period of formative years in their childhood. It’s the time when you started watching SportsCenter every day (for me, it was the golden age of Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann pre-MSNBC liberal crusader), watching every championship game/series, reading the sports section … →
This week’s Feeny Friday comes to us from Friend of The Wise Guise and regular guest blogger, Jay “Jayzor” Salato. Some call him Coach Jayzor. Some just call him Coach.

Enjoy this week’s Feeny Friday from him and, as always, here’s the video if you want to follow along at home… Happy Feeny Friday! Read all the … →
A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet. -Orson Welles I’m going to be kicking off a new movie ranking series and I thought the most appropriate start would be to review movies about the movies.

As a lover of film, I’ve always been fascinated by these … →
