Capitalism: A Love Story (2009)

Capitalism: A Love Story (2009) — Hmmmm… how do I make this a strictly movie review without making this about political views?  Fuck it; can’t be done. I guess I’ll start with my own basic perspective on the subject matter: I believe in capitalism as people receiving adequate compensation for their labors.  You get reward … Continue reading

Religulous (2008)

Religulous (2008) — This movie is funny and thought-provoking if you don’t take issue with its content (which many are sure to).  While I’m not in total agreement with Mr. Maher’s thesis he makes compelling arguments but really what’s important is that he made me laugh.  When Bill Maher gets into rant-mode he annoys me … Continue reading

Anvil: The Story of Anvil (2008) — This is an awesome documentary about an awesome band that never made it big, despite touring with The Scorpions, Whitesnake, and Bon Jovi (and being arguably just as good or better).  It’s kind of a great motivator to do something with one’s life.  Lips and Rob of Anvil … Continue reading

Food, Inc. (2008)

Food, Inc.

Young@Heart (2007)

Young@Heart (2007) — Holy shit, one of the most moving and inspiring documentaries I’ve ever fucking seen.  It makes you think about music and how it has this weird power over people.  In some of these cases I think this choir is keeping them alive.  Plus it is just hilarious watching septu- and octogenarians tackle … Continue reading
