Emma Watson and
the ‘Self-Love’ Scam

It would be difficult to find a more apt expression of the narcissism and emptiness of our culture than actress Emma Watson’s recent relationship “update.” Entering upon her 30s without a husband or children, Watson momentarily was filled with rumblings of dread. But she has since found inner peace after consecrating her singledom with the label

Digital Thespians Could End Hollywood’s Preening Leftist Antics

Imagine being able to see Alec Baldwin on the silver screen at his best and always in his prime—but never ever having to put up with his over the top, far left windbaggery ever again. Imagine Sean Penn in his glory days, forever, but never again having to hear him praise whatever America-hating regime has

Pagan Son

Late one afternoon in 1969, photographer Art Brewer took a stroll along O'ahu's North Shore. At Pipeline beach, amid the world’s most sublime waves, Brewer encountered a boy who resembled a white-haired, blue-eyed Mowgli, clinging to an unusually short surfboard, 30 years before that design became the industry standard. “I’m Bunker Spreckels,” said the boy,

Impeachment in the Movies

The Pelosi-Schiff impeachment inquiry has grown ever more complicated and the perpetrators like it that way. The complexity and mysterious cast of characters give the impression that something nefarious must be going on. Those who remain puzzled might find some clarification in American cinema. The closest movie reference to Donald Trump is Paul Newman as

Hollywood’s Dark Fate Foretold in Box Office Performance of ‘Dark Fate’

Judgement Day is upon the Border Patrol, or at least that’s the message in “Terminator: Dark Fate.” The latest installment of the series features Border Patrol agents being slaughtered by a Mexican-American actor while illegal aliens flee a detention center. The people who protect our borders, it seems, are even less human than the film’s

The Joke’s on Those Demanding a Female ‘Joker’

It’s amazing what a difference success makes. Within a mere few weeks of its release we've gone from revulsion at the idea of the new “Joker” movie to calls for it to be reinterpreted as a female empowerment film. Before it was released, there was tremendous chatter among the scolderati and news personalities (but I

How the 2019 World Series Explains Washington

The year was 1924. Calvin Coolidge was president. The Roaring Twenties were in full swing. And the Washington Nationals (a.k.a. the Senators) won the World Series. It’s been 95 years since the Nationals beat the New York Giants in the ’24 Fall Classic. And for most of the century that followed local fans endured season

Halloween Costume Blues

That magical time of year is here, when the Left goes out of its way to be the enemy of fun. Hmmm…we’d better narrow that down. That isn’t really a seasonal thing. We refer specifically to the night of Hallowe’en, the evening before the Feast of All Souls. This masquerade event, which has grown to

The Swamp Goes to the World Series

Real sports fans take their teams with them. Even when they move to work for the federal government.  Nothing brings Red Sox, Yankees, Mets, and Phillies fans together better than a bar full of sloppy K Street Nationals fans because no one is actually from D.C.—though too many do acclimate to this swampy place. Wander

Harold Bloom, A Man in Full

“We read to find ourselves,” Harold Bloom once wrote, “more fully and more strange than otherwise we could hope to find.” Bloom, who died Monday, was a man of letters—a literary critic, lover of literature, and a long-time professor at Yale University. He was born in 1930 in New York City, and grew up in
