    The Video Dead

    ★★★★

    With this and re-watching Terrorvision the other day, I'm realizing that one of my favorite things about film is watching characters watch and react to TV. Especially if it's a big dumb tube TV with shit picture. The Video Dead has some choice TV watching. Our pubescent male lead settles in for a nice night of blazing and TV surfing.

    ★★★★

    Great comforting movie. It's been years since I'd seen this, but I forgot nothing. Just one of those movies that gets everything correct and succeeds so well on it's own terms - and those terms rock - that it is an absolute joy to watch.

    Piece of shit imperialist agit prop that fails at even being compelling propaganda.

    The White Helmets are not good people. They are largely responsible for our idiotic political leaders and media cretins advocating for war in Syria for the past few years. Here they are presented as tailors, blacksmiths and builders who just want to save lives. In reality they are the Western backed Sunni extremist allied information arm of the latest iteration of the butchers on 9/11/01. How swindled…
