Flotsam & Jetsam (2/14)

Cormac McCarthy: Judges in the American Canon – McCarthy is my favorite literary author. You should read him. Here’s why.

Film Dissectors – Click here to read my in-depth review of Safe House (2009), and here to read Eric’s review of Coraline (2009).

Another Liberal Argument Bites the Dust [Caution: Mature] – A terrific post by Gary Demar. He says, “If we follow the logic of ‘If God didn’t make gays, there wouldn’t be any,’ we end up having to account for all types of behaviors and justify their morality because such people with these behaviors exist.”

11 Things You Didn’t Want to Know About Me – From Persis. (I’m betting you want to know even though she says you don’t). And while we’re on this topic, click here to read Michael Wright’s “confessions”.

Red Dragon – Eric reviews the book that introduced Hannibal Lecter to the world. “For the most part,” he writes, “I enjoyed the book, until the last few chapters. It almost seems like Harris wrote them just to anger and confuse readers.”

Another Movie Review – Friend and fellow blogger Ethan Hansen reviews Star Wars Episode 1, which was recently re-released in 3D. “Phantom Menace is not what most would call ‘great’; cool and exciting as the action all is, the awful acting and overly-complicated plot make us so mad we could pull the ears off a gundark. But hey, it’s flipping Star Wars we’re talking about here, and nothing compares to seeing one of the most adored sagas in film history on the big screen!”

American Technopoly – From Kevin DeYoung.

“That all courage was a form of constancy. That it is always himself that the coward abandoned first. After this all other betrayals come easily.” ~ Cormac McCarthy

  1. I wish George Lucas would stop tinkering with his films. But I would approve if he took out the awful acting and nauseating love story in Episode II.

    Thanks for the linkage.
