MLK: Love Makes the World Go Round

Image
This post was originally published on (1/18/21) and updated on (1/16/22) . I am still convinced that it is love that makes the world go round, and somehow this kind of love can be a powerful force for social change. And I believe firmly that it is through this kind of powerful nonviolent action, this kind of love that organizes itself into mass action, that we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation and the world into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. Certainly this is the great challenge facing us.      - Martin Luther King, Jr.  Aside from inspiring the world with love through his own action and words, Martin Luther King Jr. also often quoted other iconoclasts to punctuate his messages.  One such quote from Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables was especially prophetic and came during King’s 1968 appearance on the Mike Douglas Show. "Where there is darkness, crimes will be committed. The guilty one is not merely he who commits a crime but he who cause the darknes

A Guy, a Girl, and a Pizza

Bank Robber is legit.  If ever you wanted to see McDreamy in his birthday suit, no less on his birthday, then fire up Bank Robber now! McDreamy is everything and a bag of chips (and a pizza - you'll see why) and Lisa Bonet is super legit hot in every way. And the two of them...magic. Here's the premise. After robbing a bank, Billy hides out from the police in a seedy hotel where he is forced to bribe various tenants for their silence. Soon the tenants begin to up the price for their trouble. It is fun, silly, and totally watchable. And did we mention Lisa Bonet is super hot? And it has a ridiculous cast: Patrick Dempsey, Lisa Bonet, Judge Reinhold, Forest Whitaker, Olivia d'Abo, Mariska Hargitay, Michael Jeter, and JB Rogers, better known as the director of American Pie 2.  Say it Isn't So?! (JB Rogers fan humor). The premise is fantastic. A guy robs a bank because his gold digging girl is simply unsatisfied. Utterly unimpressed she bails anyway, so he hides out in a h

Without Warning: Martin Landau, Jack Palance, and David Caruso Team Up

Without warning 2022 welcomes Omicron which has reared its head in spectacular and overwhelming fashion. So we recommend staying in this weekend to enjoy, in spectacular and overwhelming fashion... WITHOUT WARNING . This scary flick will harken us back to a time when David Caruso, Jack Palance, and Martin Landau decided to get together and do a Greydon Clark picture. If you know Roger Corman and his legacy, you may know Greydon Clark who as a point of interest, makes Roger Corman look like Spielberg. That said, over four decades, Clark brought films to the screen like the "sexy pep squad" in Satan's Cheerleaders and excelled at exploitation with diverse diddies like Joysticks , Wacko , Black Shampoo , and today's feature Without Warning , which (and don't dare us) we are exploring the idea of remaking.  Clark's movies feature Oscar winners like Martin Landau, George Kennedy, Jack Palance and stars who were at the beginning of their careers including Andrew Di

Beneath the Helmet explores the story of Five Israeli high school graduates drafted into the military. Eden Adler (First Lieutenant), Oren Giladi (Private), Mekonan Abebe (Private), Eilon Cohen (Private), Coral Amarani (Sergeant) enter training for eight months,  discovering their core values, unearthing emotions from the past, and learning that their teenage lives are now changed forever. The documentary highlights a few different positions the teens hold, ranging from First Lieutenant to Private, Sergeant and Commander.  Mekonen and Oren are both Privates, who emigrated to Israel from Ethiopia and Switzerland. After joining the army, the two became the best of friends — despite their different upbringing. The other three teens featured are Coral, Eden, and Eilon — all of whom hail from Israel.   Coral is from the affluent neighborhood of Herzliya Pituach and is a Sergeant at a pre-basic training program, working to get 12 soldiers integrated into the IDF (Is
