  • The Battle of Chile: Part I

    The Battle of Chile: Part I

    ★★★★★

    "Institutional conflict alone is not enough to justify a coup d'état. It is also necessary to provoke violence and social chaos."

    Do you think it can't happen here? It can happen here.

    Patricio Guzmán's untouchable series of his home country begins with La batalla de Chile -- primera parte: la insurrección de la burguesía ["The Battle of Chile -- Part I: The Insurrection of the Bourgeoisie"], a chronicle of the political tension surrounding the election of Salvador Allende and the…

  • The Battle of Chile: Part II

    The Battle of Chile: Part II

    ★★★★★

    "The armed forces have acted today solely from the patriotic inspiration of saving the country from the tremendous chaos into which it was being plunged..."

    Again, it can happen here. Has it happened here?

    The term "CIA-backed" is a loaded one, as there are a myriad of levels of support that America has offered in past, of varying amounts of legality, often very little and usually undemocratic. From fomenting crises in Central America and the Caribbean, to turning away from…

  • The Trial of the Chicago 7

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    "Give me a moment, would you, friend? I've never been on trial for my thoughts before."

    Watched with dad. Had a bad night! Got really sick after dinner and didn't go out to the movie we wanted to see. 🤮

    So we watched this and Dad fell asleep.

    Kitty Love: An Homage to Cats

    "Why are these humans hanging around more often now?"

    Kitties. I like them.

    My dad is coming tomorrow to stay for a few days, so I've been busy getting the house ready. I haven't had a visitor in a year-and-a-half! So, a lot of work.

    Therefore, a light movie for me tonight. What better than the latest Netflix entry of cat videos?! I am here for it, and I am not here for a review. I will just type about…

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    The screen glows white in the theatre tonight
    Not a cellphone to be seen
    A film devoid of imagination
    And it needs to be in quarantine

    My face is scowling like a raging storm inside
    Couldn't make it good, heaven knows they tried

    Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good film Frozen I was to me
    Raw deal, this reel, don't let them know
    Well, now they know

    Don't you go, don't you go
    Can't say…

  • Gemini Man

    Gemini Man

    Now, this is a movie all about how
    Will Smith got cloned by a man of renown.
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit with me,
    I'll tell you how he became de-aged in a film by Ang Lee.

    In west of some laboratory, born and raised,
    In a test tube was where he spent most of his days.
    Chillin' out, maxin', assassinatin' a fool,
    And all shootin' some people to graduate from school,
    When a couple of…
