Enders Game

“Ender’s Game” Is Game Over


“Game Over”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

Ender’s Game is based on Owen Scott Card’s novel of the same name for young adults, and so if you are not a young adult, meaning a teenager, you can skip this movie.

Enders Game

In my opinion, even if you are a young adult, a teenager, immature, or even fascinated with video games, you can skip this movie.

Sure, Harrison Ford, Viola Davis, and Ben Kingsley appear in it, but they are there only as adult window dressing for a story that is about kids and for kids.

The hero is Ender Wiggin, the time is in the future, and the plot is that Earth has to be saved from a future invasion of aliens.

Already, I can hear the room filling with a loud chorus of Ho Hums.

We are told that the world’s smartest children are the planet’s best hope, and the reason is that the future invasion will be fought like a video game, which is strange when you think about it, because the only reality casualty in playing video games is something that might just be called “remote thumb” in order to correspond to tennis elbow.

Anyway, don’t think about it, because there is nothing in this movie worth thinking about, except that the filmmakers are probably hoping that this will be the first in a series of franchise movies and there will be more coming, on which they can lose money.

Anyhow, Ender is a young teenage boy who is bullied at school, but who is clever enough at playing video games that he is singled out for special training in anticipation of the future alien invasion.

Ender has a sister, and he tells her, “All I could think was, what would Peter do?”

Peter is their brother, who was selected for training before Ender, but he washed out of the program, which consists of being treated like privates in a military boot camp, but with training that consists of floating around in huge zero gravity sets and firing weapons at each other.

Can I get a “Ho Hum”?

Of course, there are one or more kids who give Ender a hard time, of course there are other kids who support him, and of course Ender succeeds and advances to higher levels of more rigorous training.

Ender’s Game just makes me say “Game over!”

The efforts of activist Andrew Young, the foot soldiers, and beach protestors are chronicled to acknowledge history and foster reconciliation.

Barbara Vickers, president of the Foot Soldiers Remembrance Project, also appears in the movie and will be at the Feb. 21 screening for discussion.

Huelsbeck earned an M.F.A. from The University of Iowa with a focus on film and video production and has a B.A. in Religious Studies from The University of Iowa.

The Excelsior Museum is located at 102 Martin Luther King Ave. in St. Augustine. For more info, call 904-819-6421.

A Good Day to Die Hard - Movie

“A Good Day to Die Hard” a Video Game of Mass Destruction


“Video Game of Mass Destruction”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

A Good Day to Die Hard is the fifth in the series of movies starring Bruce Willis as wisecracking action hero John McClane, which began in 1988, and of all the movies in the series, this one is the most recent.

A Good Day to Die Hard

In other words, if you can see only one of the five movies, don’t start with this one.

Yes, there is plenty of action, yes, there are plenty of explosions, yes, there is plenty of gunfire, yes, there are plenty of McClane wisecracks, but no, there is no plot.

Unless you call McClane going to Russia to shoot it up and blow it up to help his estranged son a plot.

McClane hasn’t heard from Jack in years, doesn’t know what he has been doing lately, and yet McClane says, “He could never get out of his own way, he had a lot of problems, but he’s still my kid.”

So, when McClane hears that Jack is on trial for murder in Moscow, McClane decides to go to Russia and help Jack in whatever way he can without even being asked.

And let the mayhem begin.

Jack is willing to testify under oath that another man on trial, Yuri Komarov ordered Jack to kill a third man, but the real purpose of the trial is to force Yuri to hand over a sensitive file he has to authorities.

McClane arrives at the courthouse just as all hell breaks loose, there are explosions, Jack and Yuri escape and seem to be working together, and then McClane joins them to Jack’s obvious displeasure.

McClane and Jack are estranged, remember?

So, now the three of them try to keep from being captured or killed, retrieve the sensitive file, get Yuri’s daughter, and all escape the country.

There are foot chases, there are car chases, there are truck chases, and there are even helicopter chases, all with an excessive amount of gunfire and explosions and even a double cross or two.

Oh, and don’t forget that McClane and Jack will obviously reconcile whatever problems caused their estrangement.

In other words, there is a lot of blithering blather in the movie, too.

A Good Day to Die Hard is nothing more than a video game of mass destruction, and I say don’t waste your money on this sorry excuse of a movie.

I’m Dan Culberson and this is “Hotshots.”


Stop Saying “Take a Look”!


Here’s what gets me.

5[1]Take a look at this.

The three most overused and unnecessary words you ever hear on television are “Take a look.”

Take a look at this.

First of all, except for blind people who only listen to the television set, we are already looking at it, and so people on television don’t have to tell us to look at it!

Take a look at this.

And for all we know, blind people might get offended by being reminded all the time that they can’t see anything whenever told to “take a look.”

Take a look at this.

Second of all, what does saying “Take a look” add that a simple “Look” doesn’t convey?

Take a look at this.

And third of all, the expression in either its shortest form of “Look,” its longer form of “Take a look,” or even its longer forms of “Take a look at this,” “Take a live look,” or “Taking a look at the temperatures” are all just a lazy way of introducing what the meteorologist, traffic reporter, or any other on-camera person wants to talk about next. Much worse is “take a listen.”

Take a look at this.

I first became aware of this lazy crutch of an expression back in the past when I would attend a presentation by a programmer I worked with, and he would mangle it by saying “Take and look” instead of “Take a look.”

Take a look at this.

For example, he would have a visual aid displayed before us and say something like, “If we take and look at the coding, we can see how the reverse Polish notation affects all the lines that follow.”

Take a look at this.

Then I began noticing that the weather girl on the local news that I watch every morning was saying “Take a look” much too often and even more much too unnecessarily.

Take a look at this.

Then I began to notice that the traffic reporter who would follow her weather report was using “Take a look” in his reports, too, and sometimes even saying “Take a look” twice in the same sentence.

Take a look at this.

And then I began to notice that national reporters on television and hosts on national talk shows were being lazy and using the expression, which, when you think about it, doesn’t add anything to the introduction of whatever follows that we are being told to look at.

Take a look at this.

Rather than saying “Take a look at these temperatures,” the weather girl could simply tell us that the temperature in Denver is a pleasant 65 degrees, compared with the temperatures in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City.

Take a look at this.

Rather than saying “Take a look at the traffic map,” the traffic reporter could simply say “The traffic is heavy on the Interstate highway, so you might want to avoid it.”

Take a look at this.

And rather than saying “Take a look” when a national reporter or a talk-show host wants to introduce a piece of video footage, a simple description of what is going to be shown would suffice or even a simple “Play it” when the person might not know what is about to be shown.

Take a look at this.

Now that I have made you aware of this excessive and unnecessary overused expression on television, start counting the number of times you hear it said, and if you use social media to follow either the person you hear say it too much or the program on which you heard it said or even the network on which the person or program appears, write using either of the more popular social-network tools directly to the person, program, or network and encourage them to stop using that now offensive, unnecessary and overused expression.

Take a look at this.

Unfortunately, this might turn out to be a lost cause. Emphasis on good language and effective communication might have been lost ever since the Baby Boomers became a major influence in society in the Sixties.

Take a look at this.

I don’t watch religious shows on television, and so I don’t know if televangelists use the expression in their sermons or requests for money, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, because I am hearing the expression almost every time I turn on the television.

Take a look at this.

The same goes for politicians.

I rest my case.


Rabbi Nesenoff to discuss anti-Semitism during Flagler lecture


The viral video of White House correspondent Helen Thomas proclaiming that the Jews should “get … out of Palestine” and “go home to Poland and Germany” forced Thomas to resign and catapulted her interviewer, David Nesenoff, into the limelight.

Nesenoff will present “To Catch an Anti-Semite: A Story of Humor, Danger, Spirituality, the Hand of G-d, Media Bias and Cyber Hatred” at Flagler College’s Gamache-Koger Theater on Nov. 4 at 8 p.m.

Nesenoff received JLI’s National Hero Award at the retreat in Greenwich in 2011 and was a guest speaker again this year in Fort Lauderdale. Nesenoff is a very humorous and powerful presenter and has been very well received by dozens of communities throughout North America and Israel.

The Gamache-Koger Theater is in the Ringhaver Student Center at 50 Sevilla St., St. Augustine. For more info, contact Jeremy Krause at
