Continuing my Gary Oldman marathon! I know this is a really popular movie, but for some reason it escaped my eyes.

Hey, I'm glad that Saddam is finally in custody and these idiots in the Middle East finally see what a cowardly buttnuggett their sons and daughters have been blowing themselves up over, but dammit... this has probably insured that Dubya the Dorkish is going to get another friggin' term in office. Another four years of an idiot in the White House. Saddam, couldn't you have just stayed in that hole another few months? That's all we needed... just a few more months.:mad:
As gung ho as I was expecting it to be, although the bit where Gary Oldman's caricature..ahem character...muses on America's interest in The Middle East seem a little too close to the mark. I wonder if Dubya saw this as an in-flight movie aboard the synonymous presidential plane and it sparked his two brain cells off. If this movie had been a documentary it would have been very short as George W. would have made for the escape pod in double time (if he'd remembered where it was of course). At 55 Harrison is a bit of a creaky action hero but he makes an able fictional president.

Here is what has been updated in the past few days ...

The teaser trailer for Chicken Little has been added to the Screening Room. A brand new section featuring trailers for films opening in July have also been added to the section.

We are currently revamping The Moose Store, which will now be sponsored by Barnes &, instead of Amazon, which was the previous host. We are currently deciding whether or not Barnes & Noble will replace altogether based on DVD sales (DVD Depot) but we will keep you posted as soon as we come to a decision.

... Not much to discuss today except the liberal media once again trying to change public opinion, this time in my home state of Wisconsin.

Here is the story: Three sisters joined the US Military (one becoming an Army medic) against the wishes of their parents who didn't want them to. They joined the military because they believed in what the United States was doing not only in Afghanistan but also in Iraq. In the turbulent week in the Middle East, one of those sisters was killed in action. (Communist) Katie Couric interviewed the parents of the dead soldier on the TODAY show and, without a second thought, pushed the question of whether they believed the Iraq war was justified or not, knowing full well that the parents opposed their daughters joining the military in the first place. Now the Wisconsin news media is jumping all over this and pushing the story in the faces of viewers all across the state, playing on the emotions of the family and the death of this young woman. I find it absolutely disturbing that not only are the Democrats using the families of the victims of 9/11 as political tools against President Bush but they are also using the families of soldiers killed in Iraq as well. Usually the families of military soldiers support the military as well as the decision made by the President of the United States in sending their children into action in foreign countries but when there is one that shows opinion otherwise, the liberal media jumps on them and pushes their story to no end. Just plain wrong, in my opinion.

Great TV!! Two patriotic (and conservative based) feature films were presented on television in the past two days that have made me pretty satisfied, as the last few weeks have been mostly reruns or crap that I would never watch. On Sunday was The Patriot (starring Mel Gibson) and tonight was Air Force One (which, in my opion, pushed the political message of the Bush administration in the United States will not negotiate with terrorists and that we will take down any terrorist nation even if we have to go it alone). If you want two great films to watch then rent these movies ... when you're finished watching both, you'll thank me. They are certainly better then the crap that was offered this weekend, namely Saturday Night Live (with the unfunny host, Janet Jackson, reusing the Super Bowl incident joke over and over and over again numerous time throughout the night) and the Nick and Jessica Variety Hour (how many times must we go through this: Yes, we get she's dumb as a block of wood! Fine! Knock it off now!).

That's all from me for today. Tomorrow, look for the review of Armageddon to appear on the site and we have plenty of Kill Bill to push on the site for the rest of the week, with the DVD review of Volume I on Wednesday and the review of Volume II on Friday.

Enjoy the rest of the week!!

I really liked this movie...I thought that Gary Oldman played the perfect bad guy...he was fabulous in his role. I didn't much mind Harrison Ford either, he's pretty easy on the eyes as President.

The plot, though at times somewhat unconvincing, was well thought out.
If nothing else is on, it is an action film worth watching.
One of the most exhilirating action movie I've seen. Harrison Ford had me cheering in my seat. Also, this is THE movie I use to show off my 5.1 surround sound system to my friends.

Anti-americans, stay away from this one... You might get sick.

Not seen this for a while, and then it was on VHS. It all looks and sounds very impressive on DVD, and I used to like it on video anyway. It's had some bad criticism, but with Harrison Ford as President, what's not to like? Brainless, but very entertaining fun.
