Jann Scotts Journal: Gamers film makers drug dealers and gun manufacturers are on my SHIT list this Christmas0
I have been talking about these people on Radio and TV since the late 1980′s . For a while it was just christian preachers and a few brave mental health workers who were sounding the alarm. Now since Sandy Hook everybody is talking about it.
When you fill young men’s heads with bull shit, it will influence them into bad behavior.
Klebolt and Harris were obsessed with the video game Doom. The game took hold of their minds and turned them into the first school mass murderers.
James Holmes was obsessed with violent Batman movies and video games. In his isolation he went mad and shot scores of people in an Aurora movie theater.
I blame the video game manufacturers for preying on our children. We need to go after them as harshly as we go after the gun manufacturers. They are greedy monsters. All of the violent film makers are the same kind of trash. And we need to go after the film industry too. I am. It is a disgrace what they have done to our country.
Boulder of course is incredibly stupid. We legalized pot here and the first thing that happened is two monsters from CU attacked an entire class room by poisoning brownies with potent drugs, sending kids and teacher to the hospital. I hope they go to the penitentiary.
This is a city which embraces developers of violent video games. It is a city which embraces illegal Hacking. It is a city which embraces illegal drug use. It is a city which embraces violence.
How did we ever get to a place in America where we tolerated movie makers who pump out so many violent films that our children have gone mad and have started to commit mass murders. The Gamers, the gun manufacturers, the dope dealers, the film makers and oh lets not forget Boulder’s Giant porn industry that no one wants to talk about.
New Frontier Media has hundreds of employees. It recruits young girls in Hollywood. They promise them stardom and big money. The girls become addicted to narcotics, work in sleazy hotels, are abused and sold. All of their exploitation is orchestrated right here in Boulder where the movies are made and then distributed. Yes we are the center of sexual slavery too. And we call it a business.
Shame on the whole city for allowing this to go on.
From the heart of the monster
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
“Dreaming the Impossible Dream”
INCEPTION is Christopher Nolen’s latest mind teaser, whose 2001 MEMENTO is still being talked about as a tour de force.
He also directed the two latest BATMAN films, but I wasn’t as impressed by them as I was by MEMENTO.
Leonardo DiCaprio leads a stellar cast in what is essentially just another heist story, but one with a twist: The crimes, if we can call them that, occur only in the victims’ dreams, and the loot is nothing but information.
In other words, it is corporate espionage at the subconscious level.
DiCaprio plays Cobb, and when the film opens, he is washed up on a beach, captured, and taken to a room where sits a very old man. One of the guards tells the old man, “He was delirious, but asked for you by name.”
And in addition to switching around in time, the film switches between dreams and reality, between different levels of dreams, and between the dreams of different characters.
This is not your typical summer action movie, but it does contain plenty of action, confusing action at that and peppered with jump cuts between all the dreams and what little reality there is.
Cobb has a team of accomplices who help him, consisting of a second in command who is the technician that allows all the members to be dreaming in the same dream as their mark, an architect who designs and creates the fantasy world that the dream will exist in, a forger who is capable of being whatever new character the mark might insert in the dream, and a skilled chemist who supplies the sleep-inducing potions.
And remember that there can be dreams within dreams and even dreams within dreams within dreams.
Anyway, Cobb and his team are hired by a client not to extract information from a mark’s dream but to plant a notion that the mark will believe is his own when he awakes, which will make the client richer than he already is.
INCEPTION has another one of those ambiguous endings, and you might want to see it more than once to understand the film better, but not me.
I’m Dan Culberson and this is “Hotshots.”
