Bad Words

cinema à la carte                                 

"It's tough to summon sufficiently negative language to describe the unfunny, desperate mess that is Bad Words"  (* ½ out of four; rated R; opening Friday in select cities). USA TODAY film critic Claudia Puig

Bateman plays a middle-aged eighth grade dropout who enters the National Golden Quill Spelling Bee through a loophole. USA critic Claudia Puig is a humorless twat; Bad Words is, at minimum, 3.5****.  It WILL make you laugh.  It will also (probably) make you wish that some of the language was toned down, but fukit; it's a joy overall.  Even MoSup liked it.  The biggest distraction I had was caused by Jason Bateman being Mark Turgeon's doppelganger.  Streams on HBO

The New York Times’s Anti–Second Amendment Hysteria Continues

 Last   weekend, to great self-generated fanfare, the New York Times ran its first front-page editorial in 95 years. Its vital subject: The scourge of so-called “assault weapons,” which, the editors contended, must not only be “outlawed for civilian ownership” but confiscated from those who are already in possession of them. By taking this action, they submitted, the United States would “end the gun epidemic” and at long last reclaim “its sense of decency.

“It’s all about individualism and the right to be whatever you want.”
