Of course not everyone celebrates Christmas, but year-end is always a good time for reflection nonetheless, I think that’s universal. What movies do you watch at the end of the year for fun or inspiration, or memories? Obscure is good, too. Any promising new ones? And please include Hanukkah-themed ones as well, even though this year it has already been and gone.

I met Kim Fowley, the man who
discovered created the Runaways, when I was 16, and at the time I thought he was the scariest man on earth. Tall, skinny with huge deep-set eyes and giant teeth, he had a rapid fire series of phrases he’d rattle off as he leered.

I admit, the last movie I saw in a theater was White House Down, which was a lot better than I thought it would be. It was non-partisan, with Jamie Foxx playing the nicotine-addicted president who was a fan of Republican Abraham Lincoln. There were passing references to the military-industrial complex being Evil, but no party was fingered as being the Bad Guy. I won’t give away any spoilers, should you decide to watch it, and I recommend it as popcorn movie.
What have you seen? What movies are you looking forward to?

What if a new film came out about 9/11, “based on a firsthand account of actual events,” that convincingly showed no Jews were in the World Trade Center that fateful morning. The fiery disaster, in fact, was a Zionist/CIA plot to justify launching “The War on Terror”?
Or what about another film “based on true historical events,” that Barack Obama is a closet Muslim, and the drive for gun control paves the way for a jihadist takeover of America?
What about a film leaving the impression that brutal methods of torture, though perhaps morally repugnant, led to the assassination of America’s number one enemy.
