"...our area's best chefs aren't exactly eager to showcase Tofurky."
Ha ha! Why is it that non-vegans can't seem to get past the Tofurky shtick? It's the all-purpose, go-to putdown, yet that's only one product of many, and not even the best. Constantly falling back on Tofurky as a defensive putdown is lazy, at the very least.
As for some of the films listed here, it feels more like a continuation of "last week's slight."
How about Earthlings http://earthlings.com/ --the film that many people have credited for turning them vegan overnight? How about The Witness? http://www.witnessfilm.org/ Or The Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home http://www.peaceablekingdomfilm.org/ --about the emotional lives of farmed animals? Then there's Vegucated http://www.getvegucated.com/ --about three meat-eating New Yorkers who take a stroll along the path to veganism.
Yeah, many of these films are downers, because animals' commodified lives are downers, and how do you dress that up to be fun? Maybe it's just an inconvenient truth easily side-stepped with Tofurky jokes.
Skylar Browning you're a man after my heart. I want to add Troll 2 and Best Worst Movie, a documentary about the legend of Troll 2. The screenwriter says she chose to make the goblins who live in Nilbog plant-eaters as an anti vegetarian statement, which is hilarious and awesome as I'm sure many important film scholars have said.
Year of the Dog is pretty boring but I liked it better than you.
finally, check out my new catchphrase:

Having read all three novels, I believe that the two-part finale will be a flop with the Young Adult audience that was targeted by the novels. I think the Mockingjay movie will be too political and too bloody. The romance will be totally over shadowed.
Learn all about the Ramones in the book;
“ON THE ROAD WITH THE RAMONES”.
Throughout the remarkable twenty-two-year career of the Ramones the seminal punk rock band, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famers, Recording Academy Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winners and inductees into The Library of Congress' National Recording Registry, Monte A. Melnick saw it all. He was the band’s tour manager from their 1974 CBGB debut to their final show in 1996. Now, in this NEW UPDATED EDITION he tells his story. Full of insider perspectives and exclusive interviews and packed with over 250 personal color photos and images; this is a must-have for all fans of the Ramones.
Under Kim H. Carrell's profile, it states that he has no friends yet.
Take from this what you will.
Yes, your snobbery misses the point. I hope that rectifies itself soon - you'll know when it has done so because your arse will loosen up and your posture will improve. You'll feel better, trust me.
As for Eric Idle's "remark" about the other Pythons - for someone who "venerates" Monty Python, your understanding of the quintessentially English art of "taking the piss" is woefully lacking.
Josh - stop writing the things that are in my head better than I can think them. (See? You just did it again!)
Gavin Hood did the movie? Should have guessed it would thunk. I saw "Rendition" and it is the only movie to elevate "Super Troopers" from the dead bottom of my personal movie ranking. Whew! And I found "Ender's Game" the book, to establish something of an archetype in my mind.
A well-written review, incidentally.
Never read the book, which I think works in my favor because I thought this movie was great! Likely because 1. I love movies about kids doing grown up things. 2. Limited though I'm sure it is in the film compared to the novel, I enjoyed the experience of watching Ender navigate the world as a game of strategy and the moral choices he's faced with making.
CGI is bullshit, as many important critics have said, but if it ever had a purpose, surely it would be for interstellar warfare! Still, I agree that the CGI is not very good.
Overall, I'd say reading this review really added something to my life.
