King Arthur: Legend of the Sword: Well that was surprising

So before we get into the quality of this film let’s deal with my thinking before going in.  First let’s be honest there has never been a good King Arthur film—from the cocaine fueled insanity that was Excalibur to the bizarre attempt at being historically accurate of the Clive Owen King Arthur (and even the… Read More ›

The Zookeeper’s Wife: Good but left me wanting more

The Zookeeper’s Wife is an excellent story of the husband and wife who ran the Warsaw Zoo before the Nazi invasion in Poland and who turned their zoo into part of an underground railroad to get Jews out of the ghettos.

Elementary Politics at Phoenix Comicon

The writers at Elementary Politics all have a lot of different obsessions. Some of us read books about the Revolutionary War like they’re going out of style, some of us read Supreme Court case briefs for fun, and others like to argue with people about foreign policy.
